As of 2019, 79 percent of Americans have an account of some form on social media. Whether they’re scrolling through their Facebook News Feed, tweeting about the news of the day, or posting photos of their latest vacation on Instagram, those same 79 percent of people are spending, on average, over 2 hours of time per day on social media. They’re choosing how to dress, deciding where to go on vacation, and planning to try a new restaurant based on what they’ve seen online; why would finding a new church be any different?
If your church has no presence on social media channels like Facebook and Instagram, you are missing out on a huge opportunity to engage with your members and attract guests to join you for worship. Even worse, if you are on social media but aren’t doing it well, it can actually have a negative impact on how your church is perceived.
Digital Ministries is here to help. We will come alongside you to develop an effective social media strategy that works for your church and community. We take away concerns about the time and consistency needed to grow and nurture a social media following by creating content and posting regularly on your behalf. In addition, Digital Ministries will use our expertise to optimize your social media presence by using strategic hashtags and timing posts for maximum exposure.
We understand that churches – and church members – have a lot of concerns and trepidations around the topic of social media due to the wide variety of positive and negative influences it holds on our society. However, we believe that given the data it can also be an effective way to connect people with the gospel and that failing to engage on social media may keep your message from reaching the people who need to hear it most.
A digital agency provides consulting services at the intersection of technology, marketing, and analytics. They provide website design, social media management, email marketing, online advertising, and SEO among other services.
Don’t let the word audit scare you off. A digit audit is simply an assessment of your social media, website, email practices, and search engine presence. It’s the first step we take with all churches / ministries and it maps out how we can help you realize your ministry goals. Best of all it’s FREE!
We have more than 25 years worth of combined experience working for Fortune 500 companies in digital marketing and software development. By the grace of God, we have been Christians and involved in the local church even longer. We understand the church and we have a great deal of experience working at our crafts.
Your online presence is a valuable asset to reach your community and stay connected with your members. You can advertise church events in your neighborhood on Google, share about church life on social media, automatically follow-up with guests via email, and much much more.
We have worked with churches as small as 27 members and as big as 1,200 members. There’s no size church or ministry that’s too big or too small.
We’ve worked with growing churches just like yours. We understand the financial strains for most young churches. Hiring Digital Ministries is an investment in your future. We can put in place important foundational tools in place to help get your name into the community and keep in regular contact with your members.
We build custom quotes for all our potential partners depending on their needs. For most churches we can provide a full scale digital strategy and the consulting hours needed to execute the strategy for the cost of hiring a part time employee.
The first step is to request a digital audit. That allows us to perform an assessment of your church’s online presence and setup a meeting with you. After the assessment we will provide a price quote.
