How to boost your club page
Do you want to connect with thousands of potential volunteers at the touch of a button?
All you need to do is create a club page. Having a club page on the Join In website means you can connect with thousands of amazing potential volunteers who can help your club. We like to think that we’re digitally playing cupid.
Clubs like these below are spending only a little time on their Join In pages, but getting big rewards.
South Loughton Cricket Club have uploaded a picture of their club crest and added a bit of personality to their club info. This helps catch the attention of potential volunteers and gives them a feel for the club.
Kingswood Falcons FC have included lots of details about what they do and what they need help with. This lets volunteers know how they can make a difference and exactly what commitment they need to make, so they can understand if the opportunity is for them.
Jubilee 77 Youth Football Club keep their page up to date with upcoming events and new opportunities. This shows would-be volunteers that they can start lending a hand right now and encourages them to get in touch.
All three clubs above have successfully found one or more volunteer matches through Join In, helping them to run more activities and attract new members. And there are plenty more like them!
We know that local sports clubs are often run entirely by volunteers – and that you’re probably juggling a million jobs! That’s why we’ve designed your Join In club page to be very low maintenance. It only takes a couple of minutes to keep updated. Simply log in, click on ‘Edit Profile’ and make sure you’ve filled in all the boxes. Here, you can let people know how many volunteers you would like, and what they might be doing when they help at your club.
If you only do 5 things…
- Upload a photo or logo – preferably a high resolution image, so that it looks nice and clear on your page.
- Use an email address that you check regularly so there’s no danger of you missing messages from interested volunteers. And remember to make your club address the place where your activities take place (not your home or another address), so our automatic map pinpoints it accurately.
- List all of the sports and activities at your club – that way, you can find volunteers who are passionate about your sport.
- Tell everybody at the club about your page – either in person or through an email. They need to know that volunteers from Join In will be contacting your club! If you’re on Facebook or Twitter, share your club page with your followers.
- Keep it up to date. Make sure you remove any old volunteering opportunities, so that there aren’t any disappointed volunteers, and add new opportunities with plenty of notice for upcoming events.
Now you’re all set to go.
