On this slam-tastic episode of the ChurchMag Podcast, Jeremy Smith and KC Proctor join me as we talk about the next step in social media. As we look at the trends of 2014, we see that being “real” is really important with the amount of online ‘noise’ has become almost deafening.
So what’s the next step for you, your church, ministry or nonprofit’s social media platform?
Series Two — Episode Three
Jeremy brought the book-shaka-laka this week (Phil would be proud). I tried, but it failed. It failed SO BAD, that it was left on the editing room floor. The good news, however, is that my rejected shoot is what launched Jeremy into his slam dunk of a monologue. So I’ll take credit whenever I can. You’re welcome, Jeremy. You’re welcome.
Here’s a few quotes (or paraphrases) you can Tweet, share on Facebook, Google+ or throw into Buffer like I do:
- A RT is a Christian Twitter users, “Amen.”
- A +1 is a Christian Google+ users, “Amen”
- A Like! is a Christian Facebook users, “Amen”
- You need to be intentional with social media.
- Without a social media strategy, you won’t be successful.
- Social media is a tool. Build something with it.
- Don’t use social media for the sake of using social media.
Finally, here are some tweets we referred to during the podcast:
PASTORS: social media is not another pulpit to preach from. You are at a block party w/ the rest of us. #protip

[This is where I would have put the tweet by @JustinWise about 2014 being the year everyone quits their job, but I can’t find it.]
