All Volunteers - 6 Steps (6 minutes):
-----Promo Codes:Recognition & Reward for Volunteers-----
Volunteers earn 1 or more complimentary tickets for admission to the event. If you help with setup, decoration, or check-in, you should and do attend for free - you earned it. You can also help promote by inviting others - this is where the Promo Codes come in to play...
Promo Codes give us a way to do just that - track performance and recognize. While most volunteers expect nothing at all in return, I think the least we can do is award free entry to the event in return for your efforts. Most every event you ever attend has volunteers that are "complimentary" entry (yes, even those ushers at the Fox Theater get to watch the show for free:). There other benefits to the overall team efforts by creating some friendly competition - that is "who can sell the most tickets?" The Promo Code reports also set great examples of leadership and let other volunteers know what is possible, and encourage everyone to go the extra mile.
Promo Codes offer your friends a discounted purchase price online.
By the way, whether you sell one ticket or 100, you are a vital thread in our Atlanta200 volunteer fabric. If you need coaching or help selling tickets, feel free to email me, Steve Kilby, your ever-humble Event Producer firstname.lastname@example.org
Decorations Team members sign-up, are contacted in advance of the event, and show up at 11:30 am on the morning of the event. Some help with deliver - especially if you have a truck or SUV. Others inflate and tie balloons or string lights. Setup usually takes 2 to 4 hours. All Deco Volunteers receive 1 complimentary admission with no toy required AFTER EVENT SETUP IS COMPLETE.
Check-In (night of) Greeters and Ticket Sales volunteers night of the event. Volunteers show show up 7 pm for your position and time-schedule assignments. The team leaders will give you 10 minutes of training. With 50 volunteers, your time commitment is no more than 60 minutes, but most enjoy this so much they try to stay longer :). Work 60 minutes, you earn your complimentary admission with no toy required.
1. How do I know how many tickets have been purchased using my Promo Code? As ticket sales increase (around Dec 1) a sales report listing your name, promo code and number of tickets will be posted or accessible from this page. 90% of the tickets are sold during the last 14 days before the event.
2. How do I receieve my "earned" tickets? Two methods. The first is easiest; we cutoff ticket sales in advance of the event. At that time, an announcement will be published on the web site, Facebook, and Twitter. Shortly after the announcement, you will be issued a special promo code giving yo access to your earned tickets. The second method is simply show up and go the volunteer check-in at the entrance. Your results will be in a report.
3. I see my Promo Code listed, but it is not valid on the ticket (Xorbia) purchase page - what do I do? First, allow up to 12 hours after registration for your code to be active, then send me an email Subject: Promo Code...include your email address, first, last name, and I will fix it:) email@example.com
