Telling Your Story From Start to Social Media Finish
The Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America and its members have incredible stories to share with each other and the world. Amazing achievements, meaningful outreach, powerful worships and evangelistic meetings are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to sharable news and information. But how do you decide what events and stories should be covered? What is the objective in sharing? What audience(s) do you want to reach? How should you reach them? Kimberly Luste Maran and Jamie Jean Schneider will bring you through idea inception to social media finish in this workshop. Learn what stories have potential, how to reach multiple audiences by tailoring your content (word, photo, and video), and which social media platforms will work best to get your story out. And if you are a ministry partner, what newsworthy activities have you, your spouse, or the people within your influence been involved in? Their story needs to be told! A brief tutorial on social media analytics will also be shared.
