How to add a Digital Outreach to your Church

2012-05-23T15:42:48.640-07:00


Understandably, the first question that might come to mind is, “Why
should we turn our church into a Digital Outreach?” Well, there are
a host of reasons you might want to pursue new ideas for outreach,
and the reasons for Digital Outreach are indicated below:

• You will have the ability to reach out beyond the confines of your
church to a greater, broader community.

• If your church currently ‘serves” those in a ten mile radius, your
Digital Ministry can go nationwide, or even international.

• It will allow you to better fill the Great Commission, per Acts 1:8
 - “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come
upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in
all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth.”

• Allow you a way of ministering to a vast mission field.

After wondering “why” to go Digital, the next natural concern is
“what to do” to go Digital.  You may want to establish a Digital
Outreach Team, which will coordinate with those in charge of
creating other ideas for church outreach. Together, they can
create a plan to implement all your outreach ministry
ideas.


Steps on how to add a Digital Outreach to your Church:

1) Launch Prayer Walls - An excellent way to facilitate outreach to
 people’s needs, and be added to the website or church Facebook
 page.

2) Establish an E-Mail Campaign - That people can receive for free
 like “40 Days to a Happier Marriage.”

3) Set up a Facebook Page For Your Church.

4) Turn Pastor’s Sermons into e-books.

5) “Stream” your Services on your Website and/or upload Videos
to You Tube.

6) Place “Teaching Videos” on You Tube - Pastor having a
“conversation chat” on various topics via digicam.
                         
7) Develop an “Articles Archive” - Written on a variety of topics,
you are basically creating an “Online Library”

8) Offer Free Downloads - White papers on various topics

9) Offer Electronic Bible Studies - “How to Establish and Improve
Your Prayer Life”

10) Translate your Website into a Foreign Language - Preferably
the predominant one in the area you serve

11) Develop an “Online” Bookstore

12) Develop a “Bulletin Board Forum” do discuss various topics/issues

13) Establish an “e Learning Center” - Classes on virtually any topic
Bible Studies

14) Create a “Christian Calendar” - Upcoming Events, Local & National

15) Have a Church Blog - Discuss current events and life today from a
Biblical point of view (Movies, Political Issues).

16) Create a Prayer Chain - “Text Message” Prayer Chain

The people at Pathmaker Marketing are not only aware of this, but, rather, they stand ready to help you and your company compete in an ever expanding arena where English is not the only language spoken. As a result, Pathmaker Marketing is always looking forward to helping you accept the challenge of Internationalization!!

The number of ethnicities that surround us is remarkable and, as astute business people, we need to do all that we possibly can to tap into these most viable markets. How, exactly, can Pathmaker Marketing help you do this? First, they can assist you in doing a survey regarding the number of possible ethnic markets that you are currently missing out on! Once accomplished, the next step will be to help you consider to be the major aspects of Internet and Social Network Marketing! The key to this program will, of course, be the utilization to put virtually all of these Marketing Programs into a myriad of languages. To show the extent of what can be accomplished, please take time to visit one of Pathmaker Marketing’s most recently completed projects, a 3D Virtual Tour of the Tenboom Museum in Haarlem, Holland at www.tenboom.com. Due to the extensive worldwide interest in this particular topic, the client’s goal was to have it presented in twenty different languages. Think of how wonderful it would be if prospective clients could go to your Website and click on a tab that would allow them to read it in their native tongue - - Español, Deutsch, Francais or whatever!

As you increase the number of languages you are offering your services and products in, you increase the number of Websites and Directories that you can be Linked to.

Develop Email Fundraising

2012-01-25T15:18:13.436-08:00

by Randall Mains

The primary goal of your email fundraising is to raise gifts or sell products, not deliver ministry (that’s what your e-newsletter does). E-fundraising is an entire course in itself that fundraising professionals like Pathmaker Marketing teach, but when done effectively, it can become an monthly income-producing channel for your ministry that might even rival your direct mail and telephone fundraising efforts.

But you’re not ready to do e-appeals until you’ve properly introduced your newfound friends to your ministry. Once they know who you are and what you stand for, then you can begin implementing fundraising for nonprofits and begin requesting their support for your worthy causes.

In general, the basic components of any email solicitation include your Subject Line, your message in HTML and/or text, and your Landing Page.

The primary goal of your Subject Line is to get your emails opened. The primary goal of your email is to get click-through traffic to your Landing Page. And the primary goal of your Landing Page is to get conversions on your offer (i.e., gifts or sales, leads, list signups, etc). Each component has a specific goal, but they must all work together harmoniously to produce effective results.

There are different schools of thought on basic email fundraising strategies like: short email to long landing page, or long email to short landing page, but to determine what works best with your constituents, you just need to test, test and continue testing.

In addition, there’s the landing page process of effective internet marketing, which brings to mind to importance of your understanding of landing page conversion protocol. This subject is a big one and we’re only touching its surface today, but to show you how advanced you can become in this arena, here’s a patented formula I use to improve landing page conversion:

Landing Page Conversion = 4m+3v+2(i-f)-2a

m= the user’s motivation; v= clarity of the value proposition; i=incentive to take action; f=friction elements of the process; a=anxiety about entering information. Proper use of this formula from the Marketing Experiments Corp. can significantly improve your landing page conversions.

The formula basically says that the greatest weight in the conversion process is given to the motivation of the donor to support your cause, followed by the strength of your value proposition, followed by your incentive less the friction of your checkout process, less the anxiety that the donor feels about doing business with you online. Three factors can improve your conversion rates, while two factors can decrease them.

Church Outreach Ideas for the Internet: Interactive Prayer Wall

2011-04-04T00:30:42.716-07:00

Prayer is a powerful resource that God has given to all believers. As a community, a church should continually pray for one another. An interactive online prayer wall allows church members and guests to share their prayer requests and praises, both anonymously and publicly. It is a great way to building a stronger community by praying for others using the benefits of modern technology.

Consider building a prayer wall in your church website. It is a wonderful tool for church outreach.




Cross Pollinate Your Online and Offline Communication Strategy

2011-03-06T02:18:45.453-08:00

(image) by Randall Mains

One important mistake that many ministries make is to consider online communication to be separate from offline communication. But these days, savvy marketers put their web addresses on all printed materials and even in their radio and television ads. Likewise, your website should contain toll-free phone numbers and mailing addresses. Cross promote as much as possible. You should also put your web address in your catalogs, on your brochures, business cards, in your radio or television program. You get the idea.

Another good strategy is to cross-pollinate your monthly direct mail appeals with an online fund raising effort. Our typical email fundraising approach, when synergized to snail mail, is to start Split Testing 10 days AFTER the snail mail arrives in homes, then go to full blasting 3 days after that. The email will stand on its own results, plus give LIFT to your snail mail this way. After reblasting and remarketing for another week, you can have your email efundraising efforts done in 10-13 days total, and be out about 1 week before the next fundraising snail maill effort arrives.

The combination of the two channels – direct mail and email fundraising -- working in tandem with each other to promote the same initiative will raise the water table overall on your results. Combine telemarketing in this mix and you have a powerful one-two-three punch for your fundraising efforts.

This topic — maximizing your nonprofit fundraising efforts by combining traditional channels with online marketing tools — is quite detailed and I plan to expand on it in future blog entries. For now, I’ll wrap up this series by again leaving you with these words:

A strategic online communication plan will use integration to strengthen existing donor relationships while building new ones to enhance your ministry and expand its church outreach.



Church Outreach Ideas for the Internet: Email Fundraising

2011-02-12T01:53:22.559-08:00

As nonprofits look for new ways to raise money in the digital age, email fundraising is beginning to stand out as a compelling option. Many of the larger and nationally active nonprofits are already using this approach to save money and reach broader constituencies. Your church should too.

There are many people out there who are willing to support various Christian causes through online giving. As long as you have a strategic e-fundraising campaign, your resources will continuously grow. This will contribute to the fulfillment your mission to share God´s glory and enlarge His territory.

Pathmaker Marketing has solid experience in assisting non-profits and churches raise funds via the Internet. An email campaign in June 2009 yielded over $30,000 in gifts from 375 donors. a 13-month campaign for another not for profit organizaton raised $192,000 in gifts through the email fundraising channel. We have a proven track record of increasing our clients´ funds multiple times over in proportion to what it costs our clients.

Schedule a meeting with Pathmaker Marketing to discuss and learn more about how you can make your church outreach on the internet grow even larger.




Tips Christian Blogging

2010-10-23T23:57:42.633-07:00

Christian blogging can help your church or ministry with your church outreach. It is no doubt a powerful outreach tool. For church outreach purposes, you want to take a strategic approach to your Christian blogging.

Invest in a good blogging tool.
There are several free blogging tools available. These free tools might seem like a good deal, but they don’t compile each of your blogs into multiple blogs and then optimize them to secure page one listings on search results. You have to do that yourself and that takes a lot of work.

Compendium does the opposite. It makes Christian blogging easier, faster and more effective. For a free demo on how this tool can help you in your Christian blogging, call Pathmaker Marketing for a free demo at 623-322-3334.

Invest in keyword research.
Whenever Pathmaker Marketing sets up a blog, we gave Compendium a list of strategic keywords that people would search when looking for a service like ours. The Compendium tool automatically compiles our posts into multiple blogs under all appropriate keywords, not just the one into which we posted it. This work-leveraging feature also optimizes the posts to tell the search engines to, “Come find me.”

Pathmaker Marketing helps clients do keyword research that select keywords that are not only used by people searching for their services but also (a) get a lot of searches and (b) don’t have too much competition to break into. Pathmaker also helps clients evaluate where they currently stand in search results for those keywords and then develop strategies to improve those standings.

Develop ministry-oriented content that uses keywords.
Not only do you want people to find your blog entries, you want them to find the information useful enough to convince them to visit or contact your church and get the benefits you offer them. Christian blogging should be ministerial in nature, and you should provide contact information so people who need the ministries you offer can easily find you.

When you use the right kind of blogging tool, put adequate time into choosing the right targeting keywords and develop concise but helpful content using those keywords, your Christian blogging can become an effective online extension of your church outreach efforts.



Church Outreach Ideas for the Internet: eWelcome

2010-10-23T23:44:24.811-07:00

Whenever you welcome someone to you church, it is likely that you have a team ready to make sure the new person feels welcome. They serve him coffee, exchange sincere pleasantries and ask for his contact details. Your church does this to make sure that the newcomer comes back to your church and becomes a regular attendee and active participant.

Using the same analogy, your church website can strategically welcome and interact with your first-time and returning visitors by offering them something "ministerial" in exchange for their basic contact information.

There are many ways to do this. For example, you can offer free Christian e-books, spiritual gifts tests, MP3 files of your best sermons, invite them to read your ministry blog, or install a prayer wall where they can leave their prayer request. In exchange, the website visitor would simply have to provide basic contact information: First Name and Email Address.

Typically, once they have requested your special free offers, your system will have a triggered set of email messages that automatically go out at pre-established intervals: one week later, two weeks later, etc. Each email is designed to get those newcomers further acquainted with your church and encourage them to return, possible even get further involved.

Each autoresponder email message is designed to welcome the newcomer to a different aspect or your church or ministry, and of course, encourage them to get involved. Why not collect email and snail mail addresses on church visitors in exchange for a Welcome Kit about your church, then place those emails into your electronic welcome series?

Some good real-time examples of this practice can be found in Gregory Dickow Store and in the Jewish Voice Ministries.

By developing an incentive-based e-welcome series, you can be assured that you will remain in contact with people who have shown in interest in your church outreach inperson or on your website. This may not yield instant results in increased church membership, but you are establishing relationships with newcomers, who as long as they remain on your email list, are indicating that their interest remains. Plus, typical results show that for every 100 emails you acquire, 63% of those will also give you their full name and mailing address in exchange for a Welcome Kit from your ministry!

For a Free Demo on how this process works, contact Pathmaker Marketing at 623-322-3334.



Church Outreach Ideas for the Internet: SEO

2010-09-05T05:12:57.670-07:00

Wouldn't it be great to be able to just go out and tell thousands about the Gospel, and see hundreds of souls saved? Better still, why not do it from your home?

The internet provides an excellent method to evangelize. But in order to use the internet effectively for your church outreach, you must make sure that people know your church exists in the first place. One of the best ways to do that is to search engine optimize your website. These steps include modifying your site content and code to be optimized for your targeting keywords. It also includes link building to establish your website firmly within local searches on the internet. Since SEO requires some technical expertise, it would be good stewardship to invest in hiring a search engine optimization agency who can perform the necessary keyword research, copy and HTML code modifications, and submit your website to the search engines.

Hopefully, with search engine optimization, your church website will show up in the list of Top 10 results where people can find you.



Targeting Keywords that are Winnable

2010-08-19T23:07:44.383-07:00

A blogger needs to be targeting keywords that they want to win a Page One ranking on in Google, Yahoo or Bing. Once these target terms are determined, a blogger needs to pursue these top page rankings by creating best in class content surrounding those targeting keywords, and, as a result, they also establish themselves as an expert in their field.

While it may seem easy to identify keywords you want to write about, the real trick is to isolate the “winnable” words or phrases, since what's most important is picking terms to blog about that both relate to your expertise, and have some capacity to win you a Page One Ranking. Page One rankings will get your blog qualified visitors, who may convert into names to your email list, qualified leads, product or service buyers, donors, etc.

To determine the keyword marketing terms to pursue, you can either hire a Premier Blogging Service firm such as Randall Mains company Pathmaker Marketing, or you need to invest hours, days, or possibly weeks to research them yourself, using Google’s Keyword Tool or something similar.



Church Outreach Ideas for the Internet: Twitter

2010-08-19T23:03:24.848-07:00

(image)
After two weeks on Twitter, my friend´s personal account has had over 100 followers. This means 100 people have been receiving updates about her activities, beliefs, thoughts and anything that she wants to inform her followers about.

Having a church social media account in sites like Twitter is an efficient use of your resources to reach out to your target audience. People who have personal accounts in these social network sites usually visit them at least once a day -- many have their "tweets" sent right to their cell phones. Instead of finding out whether their acquaintances have started dating or broken up, wouldn’t it be more spiritually constructive if you communicated the new spiritual insights you are having as a pastor?

The beauty of using social media marketing for church outreach is that it takes minimal effort on your part to use their built-in features meant for virally spreading information. However, before signing on to just any social network, you should develop a strategy on what would be the most useful content to provide and how to leverage these opportunities wisely.

Since Twitter opens up an international audience for you, of which most of your followers will not be able to visit your church, you need to develop an appropriate strategy to use this tool. One strategic way Pathmaker uses Twitter is that we autoflow our blog content into our Twitter networks. This way, since we are committed to creating fresh content on our blog, that content is also populated across the internet via Twitter every time we update our blog. The bulk of our content is developed on our blog, while Twitter posts allow us to drive interested traffic to our blogsite for further reading.

Churches should have a members site on Twitter for generating news of interest to current churchgoers, while opening up a second site with is specifically geared to be more "evangelistic" in its outreach, dealing with subjects of general interest to everyone, anywhere in the world.

The Internet: New Christian Marketing

2010-07-31T02:26:15.127-07:00

by Meagan Gillan

The Internet has changed virtually every aspect of Christian marketing. Compended blogging, social media, back linking, search engine optimization and text messaging have all been used to market successfully. When we found that Christian publishing giant Tyndale House Publishers did not have a significant footprint on the Internet, Pathmaker Marketing used state-of-the-art online tools to find a solution to the problem, creating a compended blog and filling it with content that will help strengthen Tyndale products’ search engine rankings. Our approach is holistic and comprehensive and we view the concerns with an outsider’s objectivity.

Our staff can “work” social networking accounts, inviting people to be followers, friends, etc., and following up. We also invite them to your online events and auto-flow your blog content to your social networking accounts, further broadening the reach of your social networking efforts.

We will research your online presence and give you the good news and the bad regarding your search engine rankings. We are experts in being able to help you build your Internet assets. Our compended blogs will help drive up your rankings with Google, Bing, Yahoo and others.

(image) When Jesus walked the earth, most people didn't recognize him for who he truly was. Even today, God's miracles are countless but we often miss them. God is moving right in front of us but we rarely notice. God is active while we say, "What are you doing?" To recognize God's presence, He says: If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me (Jeremiah 29:13 New Living Translation). That involves going on a God Hunt.

Define Your Online Objectives

2010-07-22T21:49:52.213-07:00

by Randall MainsI marvel at how often clients come to us at Pathmaker Marketing and do not have a firm grasp of exactly what they want us to accomplish for them. This seems to be as true for those companies who are seeking a small business marketing strategy as those charities who are interested in non-profit fund raising.For whether they are looking for an online marketing tool, church outreach ideas or search engine optimization services, their goals are often murky and poorly defined. An example would be those who put together an internet ad without having defined how to evaluate the results of the advertisement, or measure its success.First, as you develop your online ad you need to know what, exactly, you are expecting it to accomplish for you.There are basically a few strategic things that you can hope to receive from your internet marketing endeavor - - a list addition, a lead or a sale. Typically, your product or service will determine which you should expect. For example, if you are selling your services as an Architect for Church Expansion, you will undoubtedly pursue leads, not sales.On the other hand, if you are selling a $49.95 product titled “6 Steps to 1,000 Perfect Sermons,” the end result is more apt to be a sale than a lead.Once you fully understand your objective you can better measure the results. Making this determination will allow you to decide whether or not your advertising program was a success.Second, as you determine your objectives you will find that they may be different depending on whether you are prospecting for new customers or selling to your current ones. Example: is the list email you are using an “internal” or “external” list. For an internal list, one where you are contacting current/past customers, you may decide that for a thousand dollar investment you will want to realize $10,000 worth of sales. It might be more, it might be less - - you should be able to determine this because you will already have a track record with those individuals.However, with an “external” list, a list of potentially new clients , you may be pleased even if you don’t break even! For the same thousand dollar investment, a return of only $750.00 might be acceptable because you are acquiring new names/clients for future upselling to your internal list. These individuals will have ongoing upsell potential and a “life time value,” which may be very significant.It is vitally imperative that you define your objectives, for without doing so you cannot determine if your campaign was successful or not! Too, you may want to set up a “scale” of probably/possible success. If your “goal” is to glean $10,000 on a $1,000 investment, and you only glean $8,500, you might decide that the program was, albeit short of your expectations, still a success. As with any goal, not reaching the ultimate goal does not mean you failed.It is possible that you may need help in defining and refining your objective, and we at Pathmaker would be more than happy to assist you in this. However, before you invest in an internet advertising be sure you know what you expect it to do for you!Give us a call at 623-323-3334 if you need more help to find ways to win on the web.[...]

Sending monthly email fundraising is our 11th of Ten (BONUS IDEA) Top Ideas for Church Outreach on the Internet.

A friend of mine once received a genuinely well-written email about a Christian orphanage in need of money so that they can send a few kids to school. My friend, so touched by the story, sent some money and was extremely happy to know that she has helped her fellow Christians in need.

There is a multitude of possibilities to reach possible donors, supporters and beneficiaries through the World Wide Web. With the advent of online paying systems, it is very easy to give and receive financial help.

Your church should grab this opportunity because there are many people out there who are willing to support various Christian causes through online giving. As long as you have a strategic e-fundraising campaign, your resources will continuously grow. Thus, it will contribute to the fulfillment your mission to share the church of Christ and enlarge His territory.
