Hello Coaches & Team Administrators,
We wanted to drop you a quick note regarding an issue that is always important to a team, and certainly never more important than in these tough economic times.
We’d like to offer your team the fundraising opportunity that you have been looking for:
· it’s easy for everyone: players, parents, siblings, etc.
· the item is in much demand and practically sells itself
· there are no minimums to buy
· paperwork has been totally minimized—it’s “show and sell”
· there is no inventory to keep tabs on
· you don’t even have to collect the money
· each sale can bring your team a big chunk of cash!
Yes, you can raise $1000 or more in very little time at all and you won’t have to keep up with any accounting of funds or any inventory. What is this wonderful opportunity?
What are Glowbudz?
They are the hottest-selling iPod and MP3 accessories on the market today. Glowbudz are earphones for portable audio devices that actually light up while in use. The cables of the ear buds illuminate in brilliant colors and will stay on constantly or will flash to the beat of your music. You’ve probably seen these recently…they are all over America and kids (and adults) love them. For more information about the product, feel free to visit our website at www.glowbudz.net for all the product details. There is even a short YouTube video showing the product in action.
How can you raise serious cash for your team with Glowbudz?
It’s clear that the youth market is the obvious choice as a target audience for Glowbudz. Kids will see others with them and their desire to have them is immediate. Know a kid with an MP3 player or iPod? You’ve got a potential customer. Simply show them Glowbudz in action and the sale is practically closed already. We will offer your team the opportunity to sell these both at a discount to your customers and with a hefty commission to your group for each sale! As you’ll see on the website, they normally retail for $24.99. We’ll offer them to you for only $14.99 by way of any combination of commission/discount you prefer. For example, you can sell them at a $5 discount ($19.99) and keep a $5 commission for your team. Or, if you prefer, you can offer a $1 discount to your customers (a $23.99 sales price) and keep a $9 commission for your team. You may even choose to sell them at full retail ($24.99) and keep the entire $10 commission for your team. Most folks realize that you a fundraising for your team and want you to be successful in your efforts. As such, most of the teams that have participated thus far have chosen a high commission rate for themselves. See what other coaches like yourself are saying about this great fundraiser:
“We pulled down nearly $1000 in the first week! Most of the kids didn’t even bother going door-to-door. They just showed them to their friends and they were hooked.”

“…our team has raised over $2500 and we’re still going strong. We’re planning to sell them at a tournament that we’re hosting in a month or so too. We hope that we can double that total by then!”
Glowbudz have been successful as fundraisers for all kinds of teams: volleyball, fastpitch softball, basketball, baseball…you name it.
It’s actually pretty simple math. Assume that your team has 10 players for example. If each player sells 10 Glowbudz, the team will raise $1000 (assuming that you’ve not offered a discount to your customers). $10 commission x 10 players x 10 sales per player = $1000. Even if you offered each customer a $2 discount to entice them to purchase through your organization, the same scenario would generate $880 for your group ($8 commission x 10 players x 10 sales per player = $880).
And the best part is that we’ve taken all the administrative headaches away for you.
How does the process work?
In a sentence, it’s very easy. Everything can be easily handled over the web. Upon your decision to begin a fundraising campaign with Glowbudz, tell us your discount/commission preference and we’ll designate a special coupon code on our website exclusively for your organization. This coupon code will do two things:
1) If you’ve chosen to offer a discount to your customers, it will immediately discount their total cost per unit by your chosen amount when they checkout and purchase Glowbudz online with their credit card.
2) It will also generate a commission to be sent to your team. Commission checks will be sent directly to you, the coach, or someone that you’ve designated to receive them.
Commission checks are mailed from our corporate office in Nashville, Tennessee on the 1st and 15th of each month. You are also certainly welcome to check via email anytime to get updates on how your fundraising efforts are going.
Can I sell Glowbudz to a cash-paying customer as well?
Absolutely! We’ll be glad to sell you as many units as you would like at the previously mentioned $14.99 wholesale price. You may then sell the Glowbudz locally to cash paying customers at whatever price you prefer. And yes, we’ve had many folks that have simply used this as a way to get a $10 discount for their own personal purchases. But this product is so appealing; each pair of Glowbudz sold simply generates additional interest from others that will also likely become customers at some point as well. But we began this fundraising program as a means to help teams generate funds for their activities and we hope that most will continue to maintain the spirit of the program. We’re proud to have helped provide uniforms, travel expenses and entry fees for many teams by way of this fundraising program!
How do we get started?
We’ve tried to maximize the ease of starting as well and we’ll even offer you something to seal the deal! Simply send us an email or call us toll-free to begin your personal fundraiser with Glowbudz. Tell us your preferred discount/commission ratio and we’ll create an exclusive coupon code for your organization. The code will be good for 1 year and can be renewed easily with a phone call or email for renewal prior to expiration. We’d like to be a part of helping your group for many years to come!
We’ll even send you a free (that’s right, free) set of Glowbudz for enrolling in the program. This will provide you with a sample to show the entire team. We’re sure that some will want Glowbudz for themselves right away and each set will likely create new customers with relative ease. It simply cannot be any easier than that. Your customers can pay any way they like. You don’t have to maintain any inventory or hold any funds and we’ll even send you a free set of Glowbudz to get you started!
Please feel free to email us or call us toll-free or check out the website if you have any further questions. We wish your group the best in seasons to come and hope we can be a small part in your success!
