Fundraising is a key component of attracting and maintaining a solid customer base. Company representatives often meet members of the public or group of prospective donors for the first time, so it is critical to make a good impression. A surprising way to provide a positive financial image to possible funders is by wearing lapel pins. Seemingly small and insignificant, custom lapel pins can help to encourage donors to invest in your organization for the following reasons.
A lapel pin is hard to miss during an introduction or conversation with a business acquaintance. Situated on the company rep’s lapel, custom lapel pins remind the busy or weary guest of the company’s name and brand to help reinforce its identity. With numerous styles to choose from, including popular soft enamel lapel pins and possibly colorful lanyards, observers become instantly apprized of the fact that the lapel-wearing person can answer questions and supply information about the company.
Lapel pins are available in various styles, including humorous, nostalgic, or trendy, among others. The pins promote the company’s brand and establish an image that guests will remember for future transactions. Colors and designs are nearly limitless, including a variety of shapes and sizes to best fit an organization’s style or to mesh with a specific fundraising event theme. Custom lapel pins can be ordered all in the same style or in several coordinated styles to pique guests’ interest.
Most or many lapel pins, including specialized types like soft enamel lapel pins, are generally very reasonable in cost. Buying in bulk for several major fundraising events may result in a cost of pennies per pin. Not only is this an economic fundraising promotion, but it sends a message to potential investors that the organization is budget-minded and doesn’t waste funds on expensive marketing ploys. This might help to encourage possible donors to contribute to an organization that carefully conserves its resources and maintains a simple budget.
Attractive lapel pins, including those with accompanying lanyards, serve another essential purpose when used for fundraising events. Guests can be given a lapel pin as a memento of the event, which will serve as a tangible reminder of the occasion as well as perhaps as a prompt for continuing to invest in or to consider investing in the organization. Some investment companies or individuals collect organization mementos, including swag gifts, business cards, and lapel pins. The pins can be kept on hand as a visual reminder and for handy contact information of the fundraising company and representative. Furthermore, special gift pins for donors at varied levels can be given at recognition events or presented on an individual basis. These are pricier, often designed by skilled jewelers, and may contain valuable metals or gems as keepsake gifts as a show of gratitude to high-level donors.
There is hardly an easier, more convenient, price-effective, and attractive or memorable way to obtain company recognition and reward donors than with lapel pins. A sturdy, well-designed pin could last for years or a lifetime, conveying special meaning to future generations as a token of appreciation to a donor. smaller-scale lapel pins are an easy way to reinforce a company image and remind investors of the organization’s identity and fundraising goal. Lapel pins are a great way to connect donors with an organization in transient or permanent ways.
