Knowing where your church wants to go helps with social media SO. MUCH. When you know where your church’s goals, it allows you to better plan out the content you need to create. It enables you to understand what to track and where to improve.

Successful social media communication starts with a goal and measuring along the way. How can church communicators get better at this?

Talking Social Media Success

Recently, Seth Muse invited me to be on his podcast, The Seminary of Hard Knocks.  We talked through measuring success on social media for churches, and how it fits into growth strategies.

We also covered what to measure, and how to get help so you can keep an eye on your strategies.

  • 6:15 – What a successful social media strategy looks like.
  • 10:00 – Where to start when a church wants to grow social accounts.
  • 13:42 – Context and community determine success.
  • 17:34 – The need for authenticity and transparency benefits churches, regardless of budget.
