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.
IMPORTANT: The above suggestions are just a few of the methods that you may consider in selling your Raffle Tickets. The importance of checking the legality of your offer with your attorney,
to make sure that your raffle and marketing fit inside all governing regulations, cannot be overstated.
There are many avenues through which you may choose to sell your raffle tickets:
· Organization members may choose to sell their Raffle Tickets door to door.
· Promoting your raffle Online on your organizations website is a good way to reach a broad audience and it does not require a lot of footwork, .
· Local shops and boutiques, especially those donating prizes, may be willing to let you post flyers in their windows or on their doors.
· Inexpensive ads in local newspapers, your organizations newsletter or your city newsletter are all effective methods of marketing you raffle.
· Booths outside of local stores, or at art shows, carnivals, festivals and after your services or meetings are a good way to sell your raffle tickets.
· Be sure to sell raffle tickets for your raffle at the actual event where the raffle drawing is to occur.
· Mailing your Raffle Tickets thru the USPO is a great way to distribute your Raffle Tickets along with other collateral material.

Remember that the raffle tickets that you are selling are legal documents and their production should be left to professional raffle ticket printers such as www.BeaconRaffleTickets.com
A professionally printed Raffle Ticket will have the following:
1. Consecutively numbered on both ends without the possibility of a duplicate number.
2. A unique computer assigned order number on the ticket and stub.
3. Die cut perforation.
4. Ultraviolet printing on the back of the raffle ticket that can not be duplicated on color copy machines.
Don’t risk your fund raising event to an easily forged raffle ticket!
When you print your Raffle tickets you will need certain information on them.
On the side of the ticket that the purchaser keeps is where you will want to list event information such as your organization name, address and phone number, list of prizes, event name, drawing date and location as well as any other required information as outlined in Successful Raffles—Part 3
On the stub side of the ticket, provide spaces for participants to fill in required information. This information will vary with the raffle but usually includes the participants name, address, phone number, email address and sometimes seller information. It is also a good idea to put the name of the raffle and the date on the stub.
Some state regulations require that raffle tickets be numbered on both ends, so look into the rules for your particular state before having your raffle tickets printed. That being said, it makes little sense to not number your raffle tickets.
When offering a large prize such as a car or major cash award, be sure that the raffle ticket sales will cover the cost of the prize plus the funding that you are trying to achieve. A large prize will definitely attract attention but will it support a raffle ticket price of $50 or $100 or higher? Will your prospective ticket buyers want to spend $100 on a raffle ticket or would you be better off selling 4 times as many tickets at only $25 each. Consider a stop loss on your raffle such as canceling the raffle and returning sold tickets to the buyers if a certain level of sales is not achieved or perhaps linking a cash prize to the amount of tickets sold. The terms and prizes of your fund raising efforts are up to your organization and you can be as creative as you would like—just be sure to check the legality of your offer with your attorney.
Decide on a prize. The best prizes are those that appeal to your prospective Raffle Ticket buyers. A hunting rifle may be an attractive prize to someone that lives in a rural area but may be of little interest to an intercity dweller.
Consider offering multiple prizes. You will give the raffle ticket buyers several chances to win a prize and perhaps win more than 1 prize by throwing the winning number back in the raffle drum. Large cash awards as well as prizes such as alcohol, tobacco, and firearms may all have special reporting requirements as well as requirements pertaining to the wording on your raffle ticket. Be sure that you consult your attorney on these issues.
