Hi there! Are you a college student? If so, then we’ve got two questions for you:
- Are you part of a local college student Group or club?
- Are you interested in an opportunity to raise money for your organization?
If you answered yes to both of these questions, then keep reading: Here Is My Coupon (HIMC) is an ideal fit for you and your club!
HIMC serves its users in three intertwined ways: we’re a coupon website for dedicated coupon users, a traffic and revenue booster for small businesses, and a fundraising platform for local community Groups, especially college student Groups.
We know that funding and budget cuts from student activities offices can make it difficult for student-run clubs and organizations to function. So how can college students find a flexible way to raise money for their club in accordance with their busy schedules and personalized fundraising needs? Enter: HIMC.
For every Coupon Space that a college student Group recruits to HIMC, they fundraise $45 for their club. Additionally, the Sales Representative—a member of the club—who recruits the Coupon Space earns $30 in commission. With our support and your ambition, there’s no limit to the amount of money that you could raise for your club! If you sign up with us today, in one year, you could make:
|Merchants Recruited||Sales Rep Earns||Group Earns|
With HIMC—especially in this early stage—the early bird gets the worm. The college student Group that signs up first and begins to recruit Coupon Spaces before anyone else is the club that has the opportunity to raise the most money. Think about it!
Consider your college campus and the surrounding off-campus areas.
- Is there a coffee shop on campus where students study for hours on end?
- What about the pizzeria that everyone loves to visit after the big game?
- Restaurants, salons, clothing stores, ice cream shops—you name it! Any merchant can benefit from HIMC.
If you approach a business and sell two Coupon Spaces to them in a 15 to 20-minute sales appointment—yes, just 15 to 20 minutes!—then that’s $90 for your club, $60 for you, and the start of your knack for identifying and recruiting merchants that are an ideal fit for HIMC. When it comes to fundraising through our platform, all it takes is a few merchants to get started. There’s no better time to sign up like the present!
Additionally, if HIMC takes off on your campus, then other colleges in your area could benefit too. It’s great to show that HIMC is a success for your club so that other college student Groups on other campuses can follow your lead. In other words, it’s a BIG opportunity for you to sign up as the first college student Group to work with HIMC.
We specifically designed Here Is My Coupon (HIMC) to serve college student Groups like yours because we believe that college students have the most potential. There’s no better time for you to learn how to fundraise for an organization and develop business development and networking skills—these experiences make for great resume pieces and will serve you well in the future.
Plus, it’s always nice to earn some extra money for yourself. $35 is a lot for a college student! Multiply that by two or three—yes, $70 (or $105!) is how much you could earn selling an additional Coupon Space or two during one sales appointment.
How does your club currently raise money? Do you throw an annual fundraising event, or are bake sales in the student union more your thing? Consider HIMC as a potentially new fundraising platform for your club: with our support, you (and your campus) could reap many more benefits.
FUN FACT: printed and posted. by the 1980s, you could find coupons printed in local and national newspapers and magazines alike. Today, nearly 90% of all coupons are issued in the Sunday newspaper Free Standing Inserts.
