Baseball season rolled around in Cave Creek, Arizona and it was time to raise money for the season.
High School budgets simply do not have the funds to get the extra uniforms or pay for assistant coaches. Our coach cam to us with coupon books that had coupons for lots of valley restaurants and activities.
The books were to be sold for $20 by opening them up you could see there was potential to save hundreds if you used the coupons.
To motivate the players we were told for every 10 books we sell we are able to keep one book for ourselves. With the booklet that you kept you could sell to make money, that was the incentive.
The key to our selling was location, we went to the local supermarket and asked there manager if we could sell booklets outside there store. They approved so we stood outside and asked people if they could help our team. I personally sold 35 books and my partner did as well. It was a great experience.
I highly recommend coupons because people can always use them were if you sell a candle people aren’t getting there money back on it.
