Church Marketing Article: “Social Media Decision Tree”

 

Decision TreeWe’ve been discussing social media a lot here on the Church Marketing Online site as we’ve been going through the “Is Your Church Social” blog series.  I’ve written a lot about the benefits of churches using the various social media, such as YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.  While I take the approach in most articles of how a church can use the media to market itself and why it can be beneficial, I also realize that most churches can’t use all the social media either because of time or expense and that not every social media outlet is a good choice either for your church marketing strategy or even your church.  It’s not that any of the specific social media outlets are inherently ineffective, but rather that each church has its own strengths and foci and those may not match up with some of the social media.

Interactive Church Conference: Controlling the Uncontrollable – Managing User Created Content

 

Interactive Church Conference

Over the past two weeks Paul and I have posted several articles related to the Interactive Church Conference, articles about church communication and interactive church websites.  One of the big stumbling blocks a lot of churches run into when deciding whether to have an interactive website is the fear of user created content or member created content…the loss of control of the website content.

  • What if someone posts theology that is not what the church teaches?
  • What if someone posts something negative about the church?
  • What if people spam the site?
  • What if people post inappropriate content?
  • What if someone just attacks our church website outright with vulgar content? Read More

Interactive Church Conference: How Do You Shape The Interactions On Your Website?

 

Interactive Church Conference

One of the topics we discussed at the Interactive Church Conference was about the concern some of the pastors had about how people would interact on the website.  There were a variety of concerns, but some of the main concerns were how to prevent the website from being just self-focused (the users only being focused on themselves) and having inappropriate conversations.  Not just conversations about inappropriate topics, but public conversations about private matters or members arguing over an issue instead of having a discussion.  So, how do we keep our church sites from becoming a gossipfest or places where people are constantly arguing?

Interactive Church Conference: 20 Tips for Success in Church Technology Projects

 

Interactive Church Conference

Yesterday, I posted a blog on the Christian Web Trends blog about why churches should have an interactive website.  I assume every church is now chomping at the bit to get their new website , but perhaps some churches aren’t quite sure how to go about it.  Thankfully they addressed some of those issues in the Interactive Church Conference.  Read More

Interactive Church Conference: Why Should Your Church Have An Interactive Website?

 

Interactive Church Conference

As the title of the conference indicates, the “Interactive Church Conference” had a large focus on interactive websites and their use within the church.  A well designed and well used interactive church website can allow members to connect with members they don’t know, deepen relationships with members they do know, and grow in their faith.  One of the greatest aspects of an interactive church website is its ability to extend “church” from being a Sunday event to being an everyday experience.

Interactive Church Conference: Are You A Bridge Person?

 

Interactive Church Conference

In the third article coming from the Interactive Church Conference Paul asks the question, “Are you a bridge person?”  In the previous articles Paul looked at the communication issues and solutions between church leadership and church techs.  In this third article, Paul focuses on bridge people, people who can bridge the gap between church leaders and church techs.

Interactive Church Conference

As I mentioned the other day, this past weekend Paul Steinbrueck and I attended the Interactive Church Conference in Daytona, FL.  We thought we’d blog about some of the discussion topics from the conference and, since much of the conference was related to churches and technology (as opposed to church marketing) we decided to post the messages in the Christian Web Trends blog.

Interactive Church Conference

This past weekend my brother Paul and I attended the Interactive Church conference led by the Bob Christenson and Matt Farina of Geeks and God. The focus of the conference, as the name implies, was why and how to have an interactive church website, a church website that utilizes social web features such as blogs, podcasts, forums, and Twitter to promote community within the church, help market the church, and spread the love of Jesus Christ.
