Because your site doesn’t sell a product or service to the public, promotional items may not have ever occurred to you as a potential marketing tool.


However, low-cost, high-quality giveaways can help you do exactly what you want to in preparation for recruitment: establish your site in the minds of community members in a positive way.


Setting up booths at community health events and meeting with people at their workplace are great ways to lay the groundwork for successful recruitment, but don’t stop there. Be ready with a pen, tote bag, or other useful item that will continue to remind potential volunteers of the good impression you left on them.
