James Bowie High School of Austin, Texas had a need for a promotion for the high school band, and Electro Image helped to successfully fulfill that need. The high school decided to raise funds by selling merchant tickets. Electro Image helped to create a win-win scenario for the local community as well as the individuals who helped support the high school band by designing and printing the merchant ticket booklet. This is a great idea because everyone benefits from the campaign.
Take a moment to consider how many people benefited from this idea. On the one hand, the Bowie Band was able raise money by selling merchant tickets. This revenue help fulfill the core need of the fundraising campaign. However, many other people benefited from this as well. The customers who purchased the tickets not only feel a stronger sense of community by supporting the band, but also get something valuable in return. Each merchant ticket was jam packed with 48 perforated coupons that could be used at local food establishments in Austin, Texas. It would be very easy for a customer who purchased a merchant ticket to recoup their initial investment in the Bowie Band.
If that weren’t enough, the local food industry in Austin, Texas also benefited by obtaining more customers through free advertising via the coupons. Also, the coupons act as a much stronger incentive for customers to make a purchase that a traditional print ad that lacks a coupon offer. This simple idea turned out to be good for the Bowie Band, the supporters of the band, and even the local economy!

However, most businesses are familiar with these types of campaigns and love the opportunity for promotions. Sales and negotiating can at times be scary, but don’t second guess your project’s potential to thrive.
