We’ve been telling everyone about our early deposit discount so you’re probably starting to think about finances and how to raise funds for your project. As always, getting the ball rolling early on can be super helpful and will take the pressure off later down the line when you’ve got holidays, exams and coursework building up!Here are some ideas to help get you started:
- Collect a small deposit from everybody: Start with a small amount (lets say £5), and you’ll soon raise your £100 deposit and you’ll have a really good idea as to who is serious about buying a copy of the book.
- Speak to the finance office: Have a chat with them about your project- usually they are happy to oversee the collection of payments for you which is extremely handy!
- Consider adverts to raise money: Sell advertising space in your yearbook, or get sponsors from local businesses. We see a lot of people selling advertising space to driving schools, sixth form colleges and course related suppliers for university projects. If you decide this is the route for you, get in touch with companies early in the year! You’ll need to liaise with your sponsor regarding payments and imagery and it’s also worth noting that we’re unable to accept payments direct from third parties. For more info and ideas, head on over to our support site: http://support.allyearbooks.co.uk/advertising-sponsorship/
- Other ways to raise funds: Bake Sales, Car Wash, Talent Show, Community Work Day (Rent a Student), Sponsored Walk/Run, Auction/Raffle.
So how do the payments actually work? Well, we’ve got a 3 stage payment structure to make it as easy for you as possible and with no huge costs to pay upfront, you can work at your own pace 🙂 Here’s how this works:
- Once you’ve decided to go ahead with AllYearbooks (and before we start any design work for your book) we would ask that you send in your non-refundable £100 deposit. This is included in your total order cost, not a sneaky extra :p
- Before we send your yearbooks to print we ask for a second payment, which combined with your deposit, covers 80% of your total order cost. Please pay this promptly to avoid delays to your delivery.
- The remaining 20% is due within 10 working days of your delivery.
We’re always here if you have any questions 🙂
