You remember it well: giant phone-book-sized coupon books that schools sold as fundraisers.
These massive books were popular, though, for a reason. For one flat fee, you had access to hundreds of dollars in savings. There was one problem, though. You had to actually have foresight enough to search through the book for a coupon and clip it before heading to the store or restaurant where you wanted to use it. How much money in savings went to waste because you’d forgotten the coupon book altogether?
It’s 2018, and at DriveMind, we’re bringing coupon books into the 21st century with the app Daily Ding. This app modernizes the coupon book, making it digitally accessible and with you anytime you have your phone handy. It’s highly appealing to busy families who definitely want to take advantage of savings, but don’t have time to haul out a coupon book. After a one-time set-up fee, your school will begin saving with each activated account. Your school can stand to make 80%+ in profits by using Daily Ding. This is a high yield in returns, and it’s so much less of hassle than a paper book or even other traditional fundraisers.
The proof of the app’s success is out there in our partner schools. Take Lake Local Schools for example. Lake Football made a whopping 86% more in fundraising profits over last year thanks to Daily Ding. Coach Dan DeGeorge says, “The app creates the ability for customers to have discounts available to them at all times. In this day and age when everyone has their phone on them at all times, it creates the best possible scenario.” What’s more, there’s a large amount of savings to be had–even larger than other similar versions of coupon fundraisers.
There was some initial hesitation with using something new as compared with the school district’s older card version. However, once they realized how accessible and useful it would be to have the savings right on their phone, they were eagerly on board! Coach Dan points out, “With anything new, people sometimes hesitate.” Once they start using the app, they’re bound to love it!
Another perk of using an app for this type of fundraiser is that it can be constantly updated and improved upon. Once a coupon book or a card is created, it’s done. No new deals; no enhancements. Daily Ding is updated nearly weekly to make sure that it’s the best that it can be both for schools and for advertisers. Users are getting so much more than other versions because the app is always being improved upon.
Your school will be amazed at how easy and profitable it is to use Daily Ding as a fundraising tool! For more information about how to use it and how our partner schools are succeeding, don’t hesitate to contact us.
