Sales & promotion
The Cookie Dough practically sells itself, as it is a unique and tasty product. Any of the following techniques would work:
Setting up a sales booth at school, sports matches, before/after church, fetes etc
Email/social media campaign, noticeboards, posters,website and maybe approaching your local newspaper
It is important to remind sellers that money must be paid at the time of ordering and customers will receive their dough within 2-3 weeks time.
Timeliness of process
Booking the fundraiser and receiving the order forms: approx. 1 week.
Sales period: We suggest 3 weeks (including two weekends) but its entirely up to you.
Final ordering, paying the invoice, receiving the dough will be within 2 weeks.
Very friendly and helpful phone staff and prompt and polite email response. Over 25 years of CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCE … we are the experts. Your success is our #1 priority.
As the process is over a three week period keeping the momentum of sales going is important. A good way to help this is to create targets.
The Coordinator of the campaign should put careful thought into arranging delivery of the dough on an appropriate day and give participants plenty of warning so they can collect their dough as soon as possible after delivery. The dough is delivered frozen and can take hours to fully defrost [up to 8 hours and still be safely refrozen], but you need to be conscious of weather and if particularly hot be prepared with lots of eskies or access to a fridge/freezer.
Keep in mind that each box of frozen dough weighs at least 8kg each. Transporting and moving many boxes of dough is a potential OH&S issue that you need to consider.
Ensure you have plenty of volunteers and a very clear process to ensure everyone gets the dough they have ordered. Tape names to the tubs for easy allocation.
If all sales are made through a school/sports club, then delivery is relatively straightforward – just arrange a single pick-up time and day such after school. If your sellers are door knocking in their neighbourhood or giving forms to parents to sell dough at work, this should be taken into account when planning distribution.
Positive points of difference
You can create a ‘thank you’ when distributing the dough. Make a small flyer telling customers how much money you raised, provide the details for the competition and give recipe suggestions for using the dough to make ice cream baskets.
The Cookie Dough is Western Australian made, all the nutritional information and ingredients are readily available on request.
Each tub of dough sold earns you $4.00. Therefore to make $1,000.00 you will need to sell approximately 250 tubs of Cookie Dough.
For a group of 12 people, that is an average of around 21 tubs each with around $84 profit from each participant.
Frozen Cookie Dough is a great fundraiser as it is relatively easy to sell, has no upfront costs and it is delicious. Kids love it because it is fun and delicious and made with natural ingredients that parents appreciate, versus bags of chocolate, giving parents a greater degree of control over when it is consumed.
The baked cookies are yummy and receive lots of great compliments, from people who ate the baked cookies and from those that love unbaked Cookie Dough.
Due to the frozen nature of the product this is an ideal fundraiser.
How much can our group expect to sell?
It is achievable for a small group of 30 families to sell 600 tubs.
A school of 200 families to achieve sales of 4,000 tubs.
