If you do not motivate your sellers for your portrait fundraiser, you are sure to fail. Now motivation is not controlling people but teaching them to do what is absolutely necessary for the success of your portrait fundraiser. You will never to be able to control people, but you will be able to let people control themselves in ways that benefit the fundraising goal.
What sellers and helpers really need from a coordinator of a portrait fundraiser
Most sellers and helpers want to be apart of the success of your fundraiser but just need a little push and guidance and leadership for you the coordinator. If you are able and willing to motivate other people and get them out of the mental rut that they’re in, you must have a plan of action, a daily checklist of duties, a pleasant-sounding, clear and well-modulated voice to get your point and expectations across without sounding like a crazy scout leader. It’s important to have your sellers repeat the rules and objectives so they know it is clear they are held responsible for their commitment and participation to the goals. If you skip this tip, your sellers will have the excuse that they didn’t understand or didn’t know.
Your Motivation is Even More Important
Your own motivation will become their motivation which will grow from determination. Don’t forget the classic saying “Quitters never win. And winners never quit.” As mundane as it is, it is true and the saying never gets old. People just need a little reminder.
Believe you have the skills to achieve any of your goals. If you believe it you will achieve it. If you believe it you can also influence others more easily to believe it whatever the “it” may be. What is your “it”? Is it having every seller sell at least $100 in sales a week? Or is it having every seller sell at least $200 in sales a week?
