How to increase your volunteer numbers this year # 2

Yesterday we looked at utilising the First Serve method to increase your volunteer numbers. Today’s tip is:

Tip # 2 Tap on the shoulder

While the pulpit provides a broad brush platform for recruiting volunteers & a pastor’s invite can be powerful there is nothing quite like a friend inviting a friend to join their volunteer team.

Train your volunteers how to do a simple ‘tap on the shoulder’ invite to one of their friends.

The friendship factor lowers the fear factor.

The friendship factor increases the connection factor.

The friendship factor lowers the ‘I’m being manipulated’ factor.

The friendship factor increases the ‘I’ll be there to walk you through it’ factor.

And the friendship factor certainly increases the fun factor!
