Ideas to Promote Your Bake Sale

Having a fun bake sale idea is great but... if you want to attract lots of open-to-buy, generous customers, you need to advertise your bake sale as much as possible.

Here are a few promotional bake sale ideas you can use to let the world know about your amazing fundraiser.

  • Let the TV stations know about your exciting event. Tell them about the variety of baked goodies, your specialties, and your contests and prizes. If they are willing to be there to televise your bake sale early in the morning... you'll have a wonderfully profitable day.

  • The same thing that applies to the TV stations works with your local radio stations. You can even take in a platter of samples for the radio crew the day before your bake sale. Ask if you can trade baked treats for free air time and day long promotions.

  • Advertise your bake sale fundraising event in as many local newspapers as possible. Many will give free advertising space for non-profit organizations.

  • The internet is going to be your best friend when it comes to promoting your bake sale. Use social media to your benefit as much as possible. Post photos, videos, tweets and website updates to your friends and followers. Ask everyone to like your fundraising event and to re-tweet your posts. The viral effect of the internet works wonders to get the word out in a hurry.

  • Craigslist is also a wonderful free resource you can benefit from. You can place a free ad with all your details into the weekly happenings and community listings.

  • Send out emails or electronic greeting card invitations to everyone on your list and ask them to invite their friends, relatives and neighbors to your bake sale. Plan ahead so you have enough baked goods for a really large crowd.

  • Display bake sale flyers and posters in as many locations as possible. Community boards, public libraries, and even other schools and churches may allow you to promote your event within their communities.

Your bake sale is a great place to sell customized dish towels and reach your fundraising goals more quickly.
