Find Volunteers With Blogger Outreach
One of the most difficult aspects of running a charity is finding volunteers. We have been using blogger outreach to reach new individuals for our upcoming fundraising projects and wanted to share our experience with you. If you have been recently struggling to find young people to help or simply do not know where to look, then continue to read to discover how we have managed to recruit volunteers via blogger outreach.
What is Blogger Outreach?
Blogger outreach is all about reaching out to bloggers who have a large audience to get your word out in an authentic way. It is mostly used by businesses that want to promote their brand. This method is very simple. All you have to do is research a few bloggers and identify those who write and share content that is relevant to your charity. Once you have found a few suitable bloggers, then you need to request a post. They might accept or reject based on how you propose your idea. However, from our experience, every blogger that we contacted accepted our request. We believe charities have an advantage when it comes to contacting bloggers for a post. Since we are a non-profit charity, most individuals were happy to help us find volunteers for our fundraising projects. There are also blogger outreach agencies such as Spicy Pepper that offer to help charities too. If you are unsure about using this method effectively, you can reach out to an agency, who specialises in real blogging outreach.
What You Need to Do Next
The blogger outreach method can be extremely effective, but only if the content you write can reach their audience in an effective way. Since you need to write the post that is going to be published on their blogging platform, you must make the extra effort to write the piece in a way that is going to reach their audience. If you manage to do this successfully then you will quickly see the results you desire, as we did. Blogging when done right can also help you raise funds. It is an incredible way to connect with like-minded individuals who share the same beliefs systems and support the same ideas.
How to Make the Most of Blogger Outreach
You need the right strategy to get the most of blogger outreach. Since you are in charge of writing the content, it is your responsibility to communicate what you need. To help you get started, we have highlighted the key point to successful blogger outreach and that is communication. In order to fully engage your readers, it is best to share your stories. This is a common practice by successful bloggers. They share personal stories with their readers to build trust and relationships. By being open about your charity, its struggles and current/future objectives, you will allow people to think for themselves and decide if they want to help. The more honest you are, the higher your chances of finding volunteers for fundraisers.
