House Raffle to Help Animal Rescue

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on House Raffle to Help Animal Rescue

Hello Everyone,

I took my annual break from electronics this last month, and now I’m back in action. I hope you too will carve out some time to get away from cell phones, emails, tweets  and such — it really is a great feeling.

Recently, I’ve had calls from nonprofits that are working to help animals–some are rescuing dogs and cats in cities hit by hurricanes. This is such a wonderful cause as these animals are helpless, and blameless as well. In my opinion, helping animals ranks in the top 5 of good causes to promote ticket sales in a house raffle.

Before a nonprofit embarks on a house raffle, the cause they are raising funds for should be seriously considered. Will this cause appeal to the general public? Are there any negative issues that may arise in connection with this cause? You want all lights on “go” to move ticket sales.

To your success!

What Others Are Saying:

“The book really does take you through the entire process. I feel like Diane holds your hand from beginning to end from qualifying the grand prize home to what happens after the drawing. I’m a homeowner and I’ve had difficulty selling my beautiful home. Now I know what it takes to sell my home in a raffle. I know exactly what type of nonprofit I need to partner with on my house raffle and what to expect. I’m excited to get started.”

-Karen L. Furguson, Homeowner in Tucson, Arizona

"Consulting with Diane by phone has been invaluable. Her knowledge on the subject of house raffles is enormous, and she has really given us a better understanding of the process as we move forward with our house raffle. She has been more than willing to take the time needed in answering all of our questions. After consulting with Diane, we feel we have a much better chance of putting together a successful house raffle and are excited about making it happen."

Chip Thompson, homeowner in Rehoboth, Delaware

"'I Sold My House in a Raffle' is an excellent example of creative marketing. The best marketers think "out of the box" and Diane shows that you can really sell your house in a raffle!"

-Ali Pervex, International Best Selling Author, 'Get Your Black Belt in Marketing', www.blackbeltinmarketing.com

“What a great marketing tool! This is a hot new method to get a property sold. My clients love this idea—I already have my first raffle house lined up. I’ll use Diane’s process to get and sell more listings.”

“I attended Diane’s workshop on February 27th, and she’s got it all together. Not only does she know how to pull off a house raffle but you can tell that she was a teacher because she knows how to convey the information. She broke the process into bite-size pieces and gave us exercises to complete so we were involved. Before anyone attempts a house raffle, they should attend Diane’s workshop–there’s more to it than one could imagine.”
