Happy Monday morning, everyone! LifeWay Social signups are open!
I’m excited because I’ve had this day marked on my calendar for at least three or four months now, and now everything we’ve built can serve other people.
The LifeWay Social Signups are open, and they will be open until the end of the day on Monday, October 30th. But, how can you know if coaching might be right for you?
You may not need coaching, especially if you have your social media strategy under control and you’re disciplined about keeping up with the frequent changes in Facebook and other platforms. If that isn’t you, though, you may want some digital communications coaching.
Here are three reasons digital communications coaching might be right for you:
1. You are new to social media and you are unsure of where to start.
If you are just now getting into social media, that’s nothing to be ashamed of. Sure, social media has been around for over a decade now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start doing good ministry work online now.
The old adage, “Better late than never” is true when it comes to getting involved on social media.
If you feel paralyzed by where to start or how to focus your efforts, LifeWay Social wants to help.
I totally understand how social media can feel overwhelming for someone who is just getting into the space. I get overwhelmed by some of the newer platforms sometimes, so I get it.
But, please, do not by paralyzed by your fear of what you may not yet understand. If you’re new to social media, or you haven’t even tried yet and you want a guide, let LifeWay Social help.
2. You have a functional online presence, but you know you could use some serious improvements.
Maybe you aren’t new to social media, but you do know that you could improve your strategy a bit.
This is where I expect most of you reading this blog post are.
Social media may not be foreign to you, but you don’t understand how the Facebook algorithm works or why you never seem to get any interaction on your church Facebook page.
You may wonder how Facebook ads work and if they are exploring, or if you should just focus on paying for postcards and other promotional pieces instead.
Perhaps you understand Facebook and social media in general, but you wonder how you could build a stronger email list.
Coaching with LifeWay Social might be right for you if you have a grasp of basic social media strategy but you’re looking to level it up.
3. You could use unbiased input from someone outside your organization or church.
Sometimes it is helpful not to have a “coach” so much as an outside voice that can act as an unbiased consultant.
No matter your “skill level” when it comes to social media, you may just need another voice to come into your church or organization and offer a different perspective that can help you create a strong strategy and start implementing it.
Maybe the ongoing LifeWay Social subscription service isn’t what you need, but you could use a simple one-day coaching session. If so, you can contact us here.
Honestly, maybe LifeWay Social wouldn’t be helpful for you. Maybe you have no interest in social media or you’ve got everything set. That’s totally fine.
My goal isn’t to get you signed up for LifeWay Social if you don’t think it would help you. That would be annoying for you.
My goal is simply to help and serve those who think they could use it. If that’s you, signups are open for one week: today through next Monday, October 30th.
Signups will not be open again until January, but because this is the first quarter ever for LifeWay Social, you can get 15% off your subscription when you check out by entering the coupon code “early15” when you subscribe.
