Wholesale everything for everyone!

The perfect solution to increase nonprofit donations

Posted by Jessica Urgiles on Jun 12, 2015 5:59:00 PM

Charities and nonprofit organizations need donations to survive. Some organizations find that it takes too much time and effort from an already busy staff to effectively solicit donations. That’s where we come in!

We make it easy for charities and nonprofits to request exactly what they need. DollarDays’ Wish List Program allows organizations to maximize every donation by receiving wholesale supplies from their supporters.

A Wish List specialist will create a personalized website for your organization, add the products you choose and will even help you market it with our Wish List toolkit. The marketing toolkit contains flyers, website banners and other tips to spread the word to your supporters. Once the Wish List has been created, we recommend notifying your donors of the new website via social media, emails and newsletters. Then, simply sit back and watch the donations arrive!

Wish lists are an excellent way to empower donors by letting them choose what they give to your organization. Read about our Wish List Program here.

How to win free merchandise for your small business!

Posted by Jessica Urgiles on Jun 4, 2015 10:00:00 AM

 

Despite often being credited as the backbone of the economy, small businesses don’t receive the same treatment that is reserved for big corporations. Bailouts aren't nearly as available to small business owners as they are to corporate America. Sometimes, entrepreneurs have to get creative to acquire what they need to succeed. At DollarDays, we believe small businesses deserve a break, too.

This month, we are offering 32 small businesses some well-deserved help by giving away $5,000 in merchandise! We’re doing this in two ways: Daily throughout June, we will randomly select one business to receive a $100 shopping spree and two lucky businesses will each win a $1,000 shopping spree at the end of the month. Nominations are currently being accepted (yes, you can nominate your own business!) and you must enter each contest separately. Ask your friends, family and employees to nominate you to increase the odds of winning.

Owning your own business comes with expenses — lots of them. It’s our goal to alleviate part of that financial pressure with our Facebook giveaways. With over 300,000 wholesale items, entrepreneurs are guaranteed to find what they need at DollarDays. As the established hub for brick-and-mortar and e-commerce retailers to stock their stores, these giveaways are an excellent way to receive high-margin items that will result in big profits this summer.

What would you buy for your business with a free shopping spree? Enter the $100 daily giveaway here and the $2,000 giveaway here. You can enter the $100 giveaway every day (until you win!) and the $2,000 giveaway once. The last day to enter both contests is June 30.

Top 3 ways to save money on school uniforms

Posted by Jessica Urgiles on May 1, 2015 4:08:00 PM

 

Back-to-school shopping can be pricey. Between school supplies, clothes and shoes, expenses add up quickly. Uniforms are commonly believed to lower the costs associated with school shopping. Some schools have even implemented uniform policies with the intention of bridging the socioeconomic gaps between students. However, the cost-effectiveness of uniforms is debatable when you consider that the average annual cost to parents for school uniforms is $250.
