How to Get the Best out of Your Organization Page on Deedmob
Now that your organization page is up and running on Deedmob, it's time to learn how to get the best out of your reach. For your page to succeed and become popular among volunteers, the most important thing to keep in mind is that engaging with the platform and using it to your advantage is the best way to keep volunteers coming.
We know you are surrounded by hundreds of online (marketing) tools, and sometimes they may seem like a lot. Here's a simple overview of basic ways to 'get social'. This will make attracting as many volunteers as possible seem like a piece of cake.
- Join Facebook & LinkedIn groups relevant to your cause (to share Deeds, stories or facts)
- Promote Deeds in your own network & social media channels
- Use the Deedmob community page to reach out for help (ask away!)
- Keep your content fresh and up to date with the latest trends & news
- Use social media to get to know your followers and community (talk to them about their needs & feedback)
By getting to know the community around your cause and sharing your Deeds to the relevant audience, your chances of getting applicants - especially the ones fit to your Deed - become much higher.
