3 Ways To Better Use Social Media

Social Media is a great way to engage not only your congregation, but others who may never have the opportunity to step inside your church. Here are 3 things you should do as a church when you decide to use social media:

1. Add Value

Every post you make on social media should add value to your followers in one way or another. It might be inspirational or motivational content that really encourages your friends and followers. It might also just be something you're doing that allows them to get to know you better.

2. Be Social

Social Interaction involves two way conversation. The best conversationalist spend well more time listening than they do talking. The best value you can get out of social media is not jumping on and talking a lot, but spending time listening to what others have to say and responding.

3. Have Fun

Social Media isn't a fax machine. It's meant to be fun and you should have fun using it! If social media starts becoming a chore, stop, take a break and jump back on later.
