Reaching Volunteers Online

I just love social networking sites. Facebook, in particular, provides you the opportunity to have a closed group. And that is a great way to communicate with your volunteers.

For example, a festival, attraction or even a library or hospital may have need of getting information to volunteers in a timely fashion. Email works, but so does Facebook - as you have the opportunity to hold a conversation. You can use it to plan schedules, find out volunteer preferances and what type of work they want to do and allow volunteers opportunity to talk with each other. They share information and bond.

Facebook provides a fantastic platform to share job descriptions, schedules, needs - with your volunteers.

MARKETING TIP: Streamline your volunteer communication in such a fashion to allow your extra right hands a chance to communicate with each other, share ideas and help you build a better organization!
