Collect More Information for your PopUp with Google Forms

 

While setting up a PopUp is easy, sometimes you need a little more information that just who bought something and their email address. PopUp Funds allows for people to leave you a comment with information, or if you want to level up to rockstar status, you can collect more information for your PopUp with Google Forms.

In a couple of minutes, you can create a form and then link it within your PopUp to collect the information you need. Never used Google Forms? Head on over to your Google drive and check it out.

Here is one that is made for a school fundraiser that lasts all year long. Parents purchase locker decorations for their child’s birthday. Lot’s of information needs to be collected in order for many parents to organize these.


When creating your PopUp, take every opprotunity you have to remind your users that they will need to fill out a form after checking out. For this Birthday Locker fundraiser, it is mentioned in the PopUp description at the top.

 

Your PopUp description is your greatest tool. Letting buyers know what’s going on. This is repeated on the checkout page as a reminder for your buyers.


Once you have added all of your PopUp items, you can attach the Google Forms link to the Note to your Buyers section at the bottom. This will appear once your buyer has checked out and is included in their emailed receipt.

 

 

You can give the link any time you want. Inserting it into the Note to Your Buyer ensures that people who have not checked out yet will not fill out the form prematurely.

Make sure to catch the buyers attention by making the link larger or highlighting it.


 

Giving the link in the email also allows buyers to come back to it later if need be.

 


Once your PopUp is up and going, it is easy to look at responses and organize them.

Valentine’s Day and PopUp Funds

PopUp Funds Valentine's Candy Gram

 

It’s a new year and time for more fundraising. Valentine’s Day is the perfect jump start for the year!

Creating Valentine’s Day Candy Grams for your school is a quick way to make a large amount of money. My children’s school raises close to $2,000 in just two weeks! It was easy, if you follow these simple steps.

  1. Send a flyer home with students announcing the Grams and ask parents to return it with names and cash to pay for it. $1 seems to be a good going rate and we allow for families to buy an unlimited amount.
  2. Get a group of moms together a day or so before the school parties and write out all of the Grams and organize them into classroom bags.
  3. Delivery Day- bags are delivered to the classrooms for students to enjoy.

However, there is a problem with this system that you don’t see until you do it. Paperwork! It all comes down to one mom who collects the paper order forms and cash. Then there are the parents who turn in forms late saying they forgot to try paying in a different way. It becomes stacks of orders, stacks of money, a large headache, and more time than you originally anticipated.

This year, you can be the mom who simplifies and gets even more orders. How? Create a PopUp!

PopUp Funds Valentine's Candy Gram

Create a PopUp in just a few minutes and post it on all of your school’s social media account. This allows parents to act on it and pay for it easily. Because let’s be real, who has cash or want to write checks anymore. Also, cash limits the orders to what parents have in their wallet.

Worried about the fees? Add a little to the price. (We added $.10 to each) We have found that when people are given the choice to walk in a pay by cash or pay a little more for online, 85% choose online even if it costs a little more! Parents want life to be easy and are willing to pay a tiny bit more to save them the headache of going to the bank or writing a check. Plus they will fee accomplished getting it done without having to walk into the school.

Taking it online also allows for you to have a record of the money collected and you can print out all of the orders on a spreadsheet when you need them to fulfill them. Or use your dashboard to find all of the information.
