HOW TO USE YOUR CD AS A FUNDRAISER

Would you like to have a CD of your church's music recorded, and have it pay for itself? Many churches and independent Christian music groups have discovered that a quality recording of their music is a tremendous fundraiser, as well as a powerful ministry tool. Have you considered using your CDs as a fundraiser for your church or music group?

Music directors, praise and worship teams, choirs and music ministers are making new recordings regularly, and using their CDs as a teaching tool to introduce new songs, choruses and music to the congregation. Your own unique CD recording helps your congregation learn new music, worship at home or in the car, and is a tremendous tool for promoting your church in the community. You could have a number of your own recordings available, featuring the music you love and share together as a congregation, and raise funds through the sale of your recordings. Here is how to do it:

A CD of your music already has a potential audience. Many of these would gladly buy two, three, four or more of your CDs for outreach and gifts, knowing that their purchase is helping raise funds for your project.

Your recording has potential for expanding your ministry and audience. Your CD can open doors for your music to reach out beyond your local network and impact a much larger audience on a regional, national or even an international scale. Other churches, groups and individuals would love to have your music made available to them. I'm sure you can think of neighbor churches in your denomination that would welcome your music recording. Many of the well known Christian artist and churches started out by making recordings of their praise and worship music, and found that there was a great demand for their recorded music ministry.


SO LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
It all starts with a release-quality recording of your music that is suitable for radio airplay, and sounds as good as a CD that you would buy in a record store. (Visit our SESSION PLANNING webpage for planning and budgeting information) Unfortunately many churches have spent enormous amounts of time, energy and money on a "budget" recording that turned out poorly, working with hobby studios or trying to do the recording themselves. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. Get professional help and work with a seasoned audio professional. A professionally done release-quality recording will save you time as well as money in the long run, and result in a product that will be a blessing for years to come. For more information on how to get a great recording for the least investment check out our CHOOSING A STUDIO webpage.

Then, when your CDs have been replicated, this is how your CD fundraiser could work:

Sell 500 CDs @ $15.00 ea. - $7,500.00
Est. cost of recording - 4,500.00
Est. cost of replication (1000 cds) - 1,500.00


Total Profit
$1,500.00

At this level, you would still have 500 CDs remaining to sell as pure profit. (How much did you make from your last candy-bar or hoagie fundraiser?) And remember, when you re-order more CDs, your cost per item is only the replication cost, and the net income from each sale is pure profit.

Use the profits to support your music ministry, missionaries, or local outreach with your music CDs.

What a wonderful way to share your ministry, represent your group or church, and help support your ministry financially! Judah Studio Ministries makes it easy for you. We'll help you every step of the way, from planning, recording, graphic design and pressing your CDs.
