It depends on who it is you are dealing with?
What is the motivation?
Can it really be a 'win - win'? In this case it is. WHY?
Because I openly and honestly will tell you answers to all three of these questions and more. Plus you can easily prove to yourself my answers are true, honest and factual.
1) Your dealing with an experienced agency in operation since 1980, an owner of several professional designations, accomplishments and broad business background respected in a broad public arena. I never made a promise I didn't keep.
2) My motivation is to grow my business and share the wealth. I believe I have to spend money to make money. So why not give to a good cause or to community youth programs instead of some newspaper or advertising company?
3) You win because I make a donation and you don't have to spend your money, You win because if I save you money on what you are paying for now anyway, I'll make an even
BIGGER donation. And of course I win, because I get a new client, share money with the community and maybe another referral.
Unfortunately today there is so much false, misleading information, and hype in the world that it fosters mistrust, doubt and skepticism in most people. Which usually means, we ignore or disbelieve the offer to give something away for free with no obligation to buy anything. And that is overwhelmingly true. BUT not in this case! Don't believe me?
HERE'S MY CHALLENGE!!!
Tell me the best way you think you can raise money for a cause. Describe how you would do it. Why it's better than DOUGHNATIONSTATION? Be sure to explain how much time it takes to organize. If it costs any money to the organization. Does it require the donors to buy something? Does it require the organization to sell something? Does 100% of the money go to the organization? Can people (donors) save large amounts of money and increase the donations at the same time if they decide to act on the free offer?
I look forward to hearing from you
