You can often get local businesses to donate prizes, or the Raffle tickets themselves, in exchange for advertising on the back of your raffle ticket. Businesses will often pay for the full cost of the tickets for smaller raffles while larger raffles, 50,000 or so, will generate enough interest that larger businesses will be happy to donate the grand prize.
You can be very creative with gift certificates printed on the back of the Raffle Ticket such as a free massage, dinner for 2, golf lessons or just about anything that would appeal to your prospective Raffle Ticket buyers. Do not forget that large donors may want their company mentioned on collateral material such as flyers, posters, as well as other media outlets.
Sell Your Tickets. Have each purchaser fill in his or her contact information, then tear the ticket in half at the perforated stub, keeping the stub with the contact information and giving the participant the ticket with the raffle drawing information on it.
Last Raffle List. If you have tabulated the information on the stub of your last raffle, you have a ready made contact database. Be sure to contact these people.
Give your Raffle Ticket sellers an incentive. Be sure that the seller has their name on the Raffle Ticket stub so that you can have a “Seller Raffle”. The more tickets sold the better the chances for winning.
