How to Host a Successful Raffle

What’s the secret to a hosting a successful raffle? Well, it’s no secret anymore! Here, we have the top ten best ways that we know of to host a great raffle, and raise money by selling raffle tickets.

  1. Print your own raffle tickets. Pick out a ticket template, add your specialised event information, and approve the proof online before you order. It’s as simple as that.
  2. Go hi-tech. Provide all your potential donors with plenty of convenient ways to get their hands on raffle tickets. Build up a website that allows raffle ticket buyers to make their purchases online. You should also have an option for people to purchase tickets over the phone, or by mail. Basically, however they like! Make it easiest on your donors.
  3. Promote your cause. Nothing is more powerful than the urge to donate to a heart-warming or emotionally moving cause. Transform the power of your marketing by promoting your cause and asking patrons to help you in your charitable pursuit. Make it fun to donate to your charity by selling raffle tickets.
  4. Brand your image. Go ahead and upload your company logo right onto your raffle ticket, so everyone will know who they’re supporting.
  5. Be original, and be unique. People like variety and diversity, so don’t copy your raffle ticket design off of someone else’s. Use your imagination!
  6. Make an event out of the occasion. Don’t just plan a raffle, dress it up a bit and build up the anticipation, and soon enough your guests will have a whole night of fun ahead of them.
  7. Offer great prizes. One of the best ways to entice people into buying a raffle ticket is to offer a coveted prize that they, and everyone else around them, really want to win.
  8. Advertise your raffle. Put it in print, blog it online, scream it from the rooftops if you have to! The point is, you’ve got to promote your raffle if you want people to know about it.
  9. Publicize important dates. Potential donors are interested in raffle tickets, they just aren’t sure how long they have to buy them or when the winners will be drawn. Make sure deadlines and other important dates are printed on every ticket!
  10. Extras like detachable stubs and booklet stapling are a good idea, and help keep the raffle tickets organised before and after your event.
