...we believe this new solution will help organizations reach and even exceed their goals faster than they ever thought possible.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
The fundraising landscape for schools and non-profits is about to be changed forever, thanks to the impending release of a powerful new tool by CoreXpand, LLC.
A new e-commerce product, called MarketPlaceCX, will allow schools and other organizations to raise funds using a complete turnkey solution that features three significant differences over conventional fundraising strategies.
The first non-traditional aspect of MarketPlaceCX incorporates the selling of more universally appealing products to raise money. Rather than the typical "candy bar and popcorn" approach, MarketPlaceCX allows organizations to offer more practical and useful products for both home and office, including "green" merchandise.
"Offering more practical and alternative products like recycled ink and toner cartridges and biodegradable laundry detergent allows schools and other non-profit organizations a greater chance to generate sales across a much wider audience while being socially and environmentally responsible at the same time," says Lindsey Tanner, founder and CEO of CoreXpand.
Mr. Tanner continued, "Not every business wants popcorn or candy. But you can bet that nearly every business in your city needs ink and toner."
The next unique feature of the MarketPlaceCX fundraising solution is the high-end, customized online store with products already included. A private online website, specifically branded to the school or organization, allows donors and supporters to shop online and select quality merchandise for their home or office.
Organizations can choose the look and feel of the site, the categories of products to offer, and access to reports and tracking to monitor their progress and sales activity. The flexibility of the platform allows just about any functionality one might imagine to suit an organization's unique needs.
MarketPlaceCX already includes product offerings from contracted suppliers with pricing and quality that will almost guarantee their appeal to prospective donors, but the adaptable nature of the CoreXpand technology allows organizations to add suppliers of their own.
"We're really proud of the suppliers we've secured. It's rare to find the combination of extremely competitive pricing and the high quality that is included with MarketPlaceCX," said Tanner. "Even so, we understand that organizations may have good finds of their own, and we enable them to include those suppliers' catalogs in their online store."
The third, and perhaps most astonishing, difference in the MarketPlaceCX fundraising solution? It's free.
Schools and other non-profit organizations can avail themselves of this powerful turnkey solution (which includes marketing materials the organization can use to generate sales) simply by contacting CoreXpand to arrange the details.
"We have had great success helping organizations raise significant amounts of money," summarized Tanner, "And we believe this new solution will help organizations reach and even exceed their goals faster than they ever thought possible."
