Putting the ‘Social’ Back Into Easter Social Media | Easter QuickWin #7

Putting the ‘Social’ Back Into Easter Social Media | Easter QuickWin #7

As a kid, do you remember questioning your parents rules?

Always wondering about the point of them. Making declarations about how you would “do things differently” when you got older.

Then, when you got a little older, a little wiser, you realized. The rules weren’t so dumb after all.

Growing up our family had a rule…
Dinner time is family time, and you eat at the table.

In typical kid fashion I didn’t get it.

Until I got older, and realized the genius of it.

It had nothing to do with dinner.

It had everything to do with building relationships.

My mom knew relationships took time, and they happened best when they were intentional.

Your churches social media is the same.

Like a family sitting at the kitchen table. It’s an opportunity to be social. To build relationships. To lead with intention.

Today’s Easter Marketing QuickWin is about applying this this principle to your churches social media. Here’s…

How to Reach Your Community Regardless of Budget | Easter QuickWin #8

How to Reach Your Community Regardless of Budget | Easter QuickWin #8

You’ve been in ministry long enough to know… budget dollars drive ministry.

Weighing your ministry steps against the weekly bookkeepers’ balance sheet. Praying somehow God provides, before reality smothers your vision.

With Easter approaching, how will you reach those who need your life-changing message?

A small marketing budget is one of the top challenges churches face at Easter.

It doesn’t need to keep your church from reaching your community.

With Facebook Ads you can…

  • Promote an event for just dollars a day
  • Target the exact people you want to reach
  • Adjust your budget as your promotion runs

Whether you have a $20 marketing budget or $200, Facebook advertising is the best way to steward the money you have.

Facebook Ads are the best use of your Easter advertising dollars

Facebook Posting Strategies and What to Share

Facebook Posting Strategies and What to Share

On this episode of #AskRADIdeas we talk Facebook Posting Strategies and Sharing Content Between Communication Types

Sue asked: We are a smaller church with a multi-generational membership. We use our website, church APP (for push notifications 1x/day), Facebook (most of our people are comfortable with this avenue of social media), MailChimp and our church bulletin to promote everything! How often should we be posting on Facebook and should it be the same content as we push through our APP?

You need to think about your Facebook communications differently than your APP communications.

People who download your APP are highly connected. Already engaged people. They have an idea of what you offer and want to stay up on event details, sermon recordings and “members” stuff.

The act of downloading your APP shows they are willing to come to you for information.

I would focus on top items that need to be conveyed, rather than conveying everything through push notifications. Schedule 2-3 notifications per week and watch the responses as an indicator of engagement.

Facebook, on the other hand, is a way to connect with those who aren’t as highly connected.

They aren’t coming to you for information, they’re going about their lives and you pop up in their feed. You need to engage them relationally first, so they can learn about you and what you bring to the community.

Because of this, you can talk about the same things as in your APP but your approach needs to be different.

Talk less about the details and more about

  • “Why” the ministry exists
  • “Who” has experienced life change
  • “What” is happening behind the scenes at your church
  • “Ways” to be a part and experience similar life change
  • Partner ministries in your area who are positively affecting your community

When you sit to write a post, ask yourself…

“Does this add value or is it just noise? Does it bring clarity about the answers our church provides?”

If you can say, YES, then schedule the post.

Where do we start?

  1. Post 3-4 posts a week. Give your audience something to look forward to. If they know you post regularly they will be more apt to look for your post.
  2. Watch the engagement. Not just Likes and Follows. Look at the conversations that are happening surrounding your content. Dive into the shares and who is engaging with your content.
  3. Track what works. Keep notes on posts that work for your church audience and use that information to your advantage.
