Marketing Your Program From Your Desktop
Have you ever walked into someone's office or cubicle and were taken back by what is showing on their computer? The computer is one piece of equipment that everyone happens to notice, especially if they become entranced with your computer's Wallpaper. If that is the case, then why not use this simple tool to market your volunteer program, whether it be to outside guests, volunteers in-house or fellow staff members?
This is actually a very easy process and can be a new marketing tool for you.
There are several different ways that you can change the Wallpaper on your computer. A good set of instructions that cover various options based on your type of computer can be found at the Family Internet at: http://familyinternet.about.com/cs/wallpaper1/l/blwallpaper.htm.
What an extra special place to highlight your program and your volunteers. People are bound to want to know the story behind the picture. Why not try this tool to share your program and its volunteers with others? See what types of responses it brings.
Screen savers can be a bit more complicated and we'll check out the process and share that with you at a later time.
