Needs a lot of work

Your team needs to go back and redo the listing process from the ground up. The organization I was going to create listings for, and most other organizations, have created standardized listings for volunteer sites. I was going to put some listings up, but here’s why I won’t be doing so:

You split the listing section into three very short sections, with the third being “vibe.” First of all the character limit is incredibly short for the first two sections, I can’t even get 1/3rd of the information I need in there. Also, I’m a millennial and I have to say the “vibe” section is incredibly lame and a weak approach at trying to seem hip to set yourselves apart from the competition, not to mention you can only fit, what, 60 characters?

The time section is annoying as well, lots of opportunities are ongoing and at random intervals and don’t have a set timeframe, not allowing me to continue without setting a timeframe is infuriating.

Pardon any grammatical errors this was written from my phone, but I seriously hope you take these suggestions into consideration because the app itself is a good concept but the execution certainly needs work. Deleting the app for now but will hopefully be back later on when things have been fixed.

Developer Response

Hi there - thanks for your note. We very much appreciate your feedback because we constantly are working to better serve your needs.

A couple notes and a question:

1. We keep the initial sections short based on analysis showing that volunteers are 55% more likely to sign up for Opportunities with descriptions under a certain length. We have a "Pro Tips" section later on that has an unlimited character length for further info.

2. The "Vibe" section is focused on setting expectations accurately. Volunteers on Golden sign up a 2nd time 4x as often as other platforms, and one of the reasons (the main one being that our NPO partners are awesome is obviously the biggest) is that we have tailored the "Vibe" section to ensure that volunteers know what they're getting in to.

3. Time Section - I think I understand this to mean that you have openings for volunteers to come in whenever they want? If so, that's fantastic. We've designed the formatting for partners who have more strict schedules, but I'd love your feedback to make it better.

If you're up to it, you can reach me at steve@goldenvolunteer.com.

We very much appreciate you taking the time to reach us.

Disappointing

Hazel4832

I was excited to see an app like this. After installing it, I opened the app and it made my music stop playing. Also, I had to register. I couldn’t even look for any opportunities first. After registering, I just got a blank white screen with the title bar at the top. I the pulled down the white screen and got ‘Loading’.... and nothing else. App just sits at loading. Reading the reviews after the fact, I see the app wouldn’t work for me anyways, as I don’t live in LA. That should have probably been mentioned upfront.

Volunteering made easy!

I work and travel often but have always wanted to be active in my community. It was so hard to find an organization and then the available times that could work that I gave up until Golden came along! Look forward to seeing finding new organizations here!
