Latest Social Media Video and Free eBook from Erik Qualman

China, India, Facebook if it were a country

Erik Qualman produces challenging video shorts on social media every year. Watch his latest at the end of this post and ask yourself, “what changes do I need to make in my ministry?”

Social Media and Your Ministry

My takeaways from the video:

  • Being on Facebook means I rub shoulders daily with 1 out of 7 of the world’s population.
  • Google searches change rapidly, don’t necessarily feel locked in to key word searches; try using trending key words in your blog posts.
  • Student ministries should consider other-than-email communication. (You can send a text through Gmail).
  • Using social media tools keeps your ministry alive, relevant, and connected.
  • Your financial partners are probably joining LinkedIn. Meet them there.
  • Does your ministry have a YouTube account with engaging content?
  • If you minister to women do you have a Pinterest account?
  • Don’t focus on an information-only web presence. Social engagement on, and referrals to, your site are what “sells” your ministry.
