If you’ve ever had to fundraise you’ll know that coming up with effective ways to do so can be a tad difficult at times, therefore it’s always great to hear about ways of making the entire fundraising process easier.
Our latest Startup of the Week is on a mission to do just that.
Fabrily is an innovative service which helps people fundraise through the sales of custom t-shirts.
The premise is quite simple - simply create a T-shirt using Fabrily’s T-shirt creator or upload details of your own design. Decide and set on a price for said t-shirt; set yourself a goal of how many you would like to sell and the duration of your fundraising campaign and then simply in Fabrily’s words “nail your pitch.”
You’ll need to then get busy putting the word out about your campaign - via your Social Media Channels, email, friends and family- wherever!
You can continue to push for sales until your campaign finishes - even if you surpass your original goal - a little like crowdfunding if you like. Fabrily will also give you all sorts of tips, advice and pointers to help make sure your campaign succeeds and you have as many buyers of your t-shirts as possible.
Once your campaign is finished, all payments are collected from the buyers. Fabrily then prints your design on high quality shirts and ships them directly to the buyers on your behalf. Simples!
Then - and this is a particularly good USP - Fabrily transfers all profits to you!
