Workshop: How to Write Attention-Grabbing Volunteer Position Ads
November 9, 2017, 9:30 am  - 11:30 am, registration & networking: 9:00 am
Do you need more volunteers and wonder how to get their attention? In a world where competition for volunteers is greater than ever, your first step is to write a compelling recruitment ad that gets the reader curious and wanting to learn more.  In this hands-on, interactive workshop, you will learn the basics of effective marketing copy and then apply those principles to your own volunteer position ads. Learn how to:

  • Write headlines that inspire clicks instead of click-throughs
  • Use the words most likely to resonate with your ideal volunteer
  • Create a call to action that will fill your in-box with new inquiries

Each participant will leave the workshop with at least one fully revised ad, ready to post for enhanced volunteer recruitment. 

Buy your ticket today! Early bird discount available through October 24th, tickets only $30. 
Pre-order tickets are $35 and day-of tickets are $40. 

Generously hosted by: ALIVE!, workshop will take place at First Christian Church: 2723 King St, Alexandria, VA 22302                    Presented by Elisa Kosarin, Twenty Hats
