William Shakespeare once said: Some people are born great, some achieve greatness and others have greatness thrust upon them.  The same can be said for leadership.

 You’re at the monthly meeting, checking out the free snack buffet and chatting with some friends.  The president gestures that  it’s time to get down to business.  Take a set, check your phone and mindlessly start checking your Facebook status.  Suddenly you hear your name called, followed by a quick “Ill second that!”  What just happened?  Your apathy just nominated you to the lead group. To where? Of what?

Your latest fundraiser needs a gimmick and there’s a lot of competition so you need to stand out.  The same predictable suggestions are thrown out: car wash, bake sale, sponsorships.  Sure it all sounds great but requires a lot of time and energy.  But what about logo wear apparel?

Organizing the effort may sound daunting but all you need is a leader (eh hem, also known as you), a vision and a URL.  Consider these points before getting started:

1. Return on Investment: Every project has a budget.  Consider your product choice + startup cash = revenue goal.  These figures will help you set a realistic price point for your custom apparel to maximize profit.

2.  Purposeful Popularity: All fundraiser are well-intended; we often  jump into these endeavors with rose-colored glasses.  The perfect marriage of a popular t shirt design, coupled with a purposeful logo and statement will move units.  Knowing your target market will help turn your vision into a reality.  Badger Ladies’ Cheerleader Shorts in the summer makes sense;  a Badger Hook Hooded Sweatshirt in 90 degree weather? Not so much.

3. Placement – the key to a successful retail store is location, location, location. Luckily for you, there's no closer place than at the end of your fingertips.  Logon to Whooptee.com and create a custom shirt for your fundraiser.  Make the link available that lets each person order their size, fit, and color option. 

Take the challenge, place the order and we’ll do the rest.
