The COVID-19 outbreak has created an unprecedented amount of hardship for grass-roots cricket clubs all around the country. However through the gloom always lies hope and there are plenty of ways your cricket club can bring in revenue streams which can help sustain cricket clubs and pay bills which continue to mount up, despite being closed down for the foreseeable future.
Our Help Hub is a dedicated resource centre which can act as a checklist for all clubs to explore. Many have already been put out on social media by some of our member clubs so we urge all of our clubs to explore these ideas to bring in revenue or save money as the months without footfall and cricket pass by.
Most online stores from household names to small artisan type businesses utilise Affiliate Marketing to bring in sales. In short this means they give away a certain percentage of each transaction and Easyfundraising have harnessed this. You can sign your club as a cause and encourage all your members to shop via their link so the club can benefit from their online spending at no extra cost to them. Visit Easyfundraising to get started.
National local shop chain Co-Op support over 4,000 causes across the country. If your cause is listed with them, you can encourage friends and members to sign up with Co-Op. When they shop there, 1% of their shopping transaction goes towards the cause that they have selected. See their Local Cause page for more details.
