When choosing between two brands of equal quality and price, 90% of U.S. shoppers are likely to switch to a cause branded product.
Local Cause MarketingEmpowering your community while gaining business loyalty
Helping causes in your local area is extremely time consuming for all parties involved. An individual or organization looking to raise funding has to do “boots on the ground” outreach to local businesses. This means volunteers coordinating and spending many days, only to be able to query a fraction of what they could and possibly not reaching or thinking about the opportunities that are out there.
On the business side, sometimes these cold call outreaches come at unfortunate times and interfere with day to day business. Then you have to sit down and decide which efforts you want to be involved in. Whether its one person or a whole committee, it takes valuable time to complete and then you start all over again with every donation request.
BeneThrift is the bridge that makes this whole process a breeze, rewards local customers, and in turn grows loyalty from your community to your business.
When local individuals and organizations in need of monetary help create their campaign on BeneThrift, your business has an opportunity to be front and center showing you are a supporter of their cause. BeneThrift is very flexible with businesses but our most common sponsorships areContribute your products, services, or gift cards.
