Is Your Church Social – Part 14 – Twitter – What’s a Twitter?

 

Twitter LogoSocial media, or Web 2.0, is all the rage.  Since millions of people are flocking to the various social media, it’s a great opportunity for churches.  We’ve been looking at the various forms of social media and how Church’s can use social media as part of their church marketing strategy and more importantly, use social media to share the message of Jesus Christ.  Our previous set of articles focused on the social networking site, Facebook.  Today, I want to turn our focus to another social networking site, Twitter.

Is Your Church Social – Part 13 – Facebook – Church Marketing By Members

 

large group - church marketing onlineIn the last article, I wrote about how Facebook provides a great opportunity for the church to market itself through their members’ network of friends.  We talked about how members can live out their church lives on Facebook, like they live out the rest of their lives and by doing so, can be telling their friends about Christ and their church in a natural, non-invasive way.  Not only it is non-invasive, but it’s also free which can be very nice is todays ecomonic climate.  So, I thought this post I would list some ideas of ways your members can do this.  I’d encourage you to bring this up with your church members and encourage them to actively use Facebook to promote your church and share the love of Christ with their friends.

Is Your Church Social – Part 11 – Facebook – Blogging through Facebook

 

Get the News OutFacebook is a great way to connect to your church members and have your church members connect to each other.  Facebook can also be a great way to distribute church information, devotions, and articles.  That’s because Facebook has applications which allow you to syndicate your church blog through either a Facebook Page or a Facebook Profile.  If your church doesn’t have a blog, I highly recommend your start one.  It’s a great way to communicate with your church members.  Even if you don’t have a church blog, you can still use this feature to syndicate other articles.

Is Your Church Social? Part 10: Facebook – A Personal Touch

 

FAmilyIn our last article I talked about creating a Facebook Page for your church.  Facebook Pages are good, but there are some features in the Facebook Profiles which are not available in Facebook Pages.  Unfortunately, these deficiencies have seriously weakened the effectiveness of Facebook Pages for churches.  So, for your Facebook church marketing strategy, I recommend creating both a Facebook Page and a Facebook Profile.

Is Your Church Social? Part 9: Facebook – Give Your Church A “Face” Lift

 

Facebook PagesIf you are a person (and most of us are) you can create a Facebook profile to reconnect with old friends, stay in touch with family and friends and meet new people online.  Churches, on the other hand, cannot create a profile as profiles are restricted to individuals.  Churches have to create a Facebook Page which works a little differently than a profile.

Is your Church Social? Part 6: “Bad Church Videos”

 

Don't post bad church videosIn light of the Holiday week, I thought go with a light theme today.  We’ve been discussing posting videos your church creates on video sharing websites like YouTube and GodTube as a way to make more people aware of your church, give people an idea of what they can experience at your church, and reach people with the Gospel.  However, just because you have a video, doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to share that particular video.  If you are going to post a video that represents your church to the world, you probably want that video to be a good video…Though a bad video can be fun to watch. 

Here are some videos you may NOT want to emmulate: Read More
