Volunteer your efforts
Being a volunteer
doesn’t initially sound like a great marketing tactic and as a
volunteer, you do have to be careful that you aren’t using the volunteer
program to launch your business. But being a volunteer does make you visible and people will
ask you what you do for a living.
What’s more, it extends your circle of friends,
associates, and influence just a bit farther. You never know
where these influences will go.
Terra McCullough volunteers her
time with the local Meals on Wheels campaign and does this two
days per week. She doesn’t volunteer to recruit clients however, “Being
a volunteer is a trusted position and I do it because I want to,
not for personal gain.”
Terra is the first to admit that
people she works with are intrigued by what she does, and being a
volunteer just goes to show her level of commitment to the elder
population she also happens to work for in her other life.
a volunteer has more potential to gain other than just extending
the network. People
are at their best when the volunteer to help others.
When you are at your best personally, you are also at your
best in business. Being
a volunteer helps keep your life’s focus.
