While the most common way to recruit volunteers is currently a manual process, the best way to recruit volunteers is likely through the use of an automated solution. An automated volunteer registration system allows you to sidestep a lot of the time and waste associated with an entirely manual process, while also increasing your reach. The automated system can increase efficiency and generate more responses while allowing you to stay on top of what your prospective recruits want to see from you.
To learn more about an automated system like this, you can check out the four steps to creating an automated new volunteer registration system to give you a good idea of automated volunteer recruitment best practices, and help you formulate strategies for recruiting volunteers through automation.
In this blog, We’re going to show you reasons why you should use SimplyCast to achieve your goals and create the optimal volunteer recruitment strategies for nonprofits.
For many people, the first thought when the topic of automation comes up is that this will be technically demanding and complex to learn to use. This is a valid concern. Many solutions out there require knowledge of computer coding or require other technical knowledge to operate. With SimplyCast however, you can put yourself at ease, knowing that you will be able to work without the need for highly technical knowledge. Our drag-and-drop platform will make life easier and provide a clean, intuitive design. What’s more, SimplyCast is built entirely in-house. That means that if you do have technical requirements, we can often work with you on those matters.
The best way to build a relationship with your volunteers is to begin before you’ve even recruited them. Personalizing the messaging that they receive during recruitment and beyond is, in our opinion, an essential part of all volunteer recruitment strategies. SimplyCast allows you to use the data collected when people apply to your organization in ways that will ensure that each automated message is unique to them.
