June Meeting: Marketing to Volunteers: Three Key Steps


Marketing to Volunteers: Creating a Successful and Engaging Marketing Plan

Barb Burgie, owner of Media Fusion will guide us through creating a successful and engaging marketing plan.

Your organization is important to you and you know its value. You rely on volunteers and know that how you market your organization to them is going to continually change. But do you ever put yourself in your volunteers’ shoes? Does the marketing you are using to promote volunteering make people jump at the chance to help? Are they beating your door down and you can’t answer it fast enough?

Why does this organization matter to your volunteers? What are you doing/saying/communicating that will make a difference in their lives? If you can’t answer that then why should they take the time to participate?

In this session learn the answers and the three most important steps for effective marketing.
