According to a January 2011 survey of 1,003 congregations, a whopping 40% did not use social media tools. Of the churches that did, 70% use them primarily as an outbound messaging tool, missing valuable opportunites to foster interaction and develop relationships.
As we work with churches and non-profits across the country there is a great amount of mystery surrounding the use of social media in the church. Many pastors and church leaders simply don’t know where to begin or how to leverage these new and ever-changing tools. We believe in the local church, that is why we’ve created a FREE, one-hour web clinic on March 31st at 12p CST to educate and empower church leaders to embrace and effectively utilize social media for their congregations.
During this live one-hour presentation, Shaun Winn (Founder/CEO of The Winn Group) and Chris Desrochers (Marketing Strategist of The Winn Group) will teach you 7 proven principles for maximizing social media in your church.
1. Begin With the End in Mind
2. Now Hear This
3. Consistency is Key
4. Push AND Pull
5. How often should I update?
6. Spice it up!
7. Measure & Tweak
PLUS LIVE Q&A: We’ll reserve time for a live question and answer session to answer as many social media questions from the audience as possible. You can pre-submit your question using the form below.
This Web clinic is limited to the first 100 attendees, intended for pastors and church leaders. There is no cost to attend. Reserve your spot today, and pass it along to a friend.
