Establishing a recognizable brand image is no longer the only goal that companies, small and large alike, need to attain to be really successful – modern audiences prefer brands that are also involved in the life of their communities. Volunteerism has therefore become more than an activity to help local communities (though it is unarguably the most important goal of any volunteer activity), but also a powerful tool to reach out to your customers. Here are some of the ways that volunteer work can help with your marketing efforts:
- Giving back to your community – if you have a business that relies on local customers, you surely own your success to your community. Volunteer work is like thanking your community for your success and it is a rewarding experience on its own;
- A way to engage your partners and consumers and to get to know each other – involving your customers and business partners into your volunteer work is an excellent opportunity to get to know them personally and to add a personal touch to your brand;
- Promoting your volunteer efforts – you can let your community about your volunteering activity through an article in your local newspaper, through a press release or by announcing it on social media and on your website. Use the activity to help with your marketing effort, but don’t brag – a modest and humorous announcement will surely get you new customers.
