Posting Sign Up Links | VolunteerSpot Tip
When it comes to engaging a school parent body or an entire community of do-gooders, you want to cast a wide net to reach the largest pool of potential volunteers. One of the best ways to do this is with free online sign up sheets - online volunteer scheduling is not only convenient, but tailor-made for this technological day-in-age.
VolunteerSpot makes it easy to invite volunteers to help including posting volunteer sign ups publicly. As an organizer, it's as simple as clicking Create a Link to the left of your activity calendar - you are given both a shortened sign up url and an embed code, as well as text to copy when posting to social networks or via email.
Augment your volunteer recruitment techniques by posting sign up links and buttons:
- On your volunteer webpage
- In your monthly eNewsletter
- On facebook/twitter
- On the classroom blog/website
- Via email
When parents and volunteers can sign up from their computer or mobile device, they embrace the convenience (versus a last minute phone call), and are more apt to find time to contribute. Automated reminders make sure everyone keeps their commitment too!
