Welcome to Episode 12 of the Ask Darrel podcast. In this episode, we cover how to run social media on a tight budget.
Today’s question comes from multiple people. In fact, it’s one the top questions I get when consulting with churches. Here it is:
How can I run social media on a tight budget?
Every year I want to take a quantum leap in my career skills. One of those skills is social media. To improve these skills, I originally thought I had to sign up for expensive conferences or seminars. However, I’m learning that majority of what I need to know to improve my social media skills can be found on the internet for free.
Free. It’s the word that everyone on a church budget loves to hear. Whether your at a large or small church, you’re always trying to find ways to save some money. But you also want to learn and grow as well, and sometimes that takes money.
However, I think there are plenty of free resources out there that can dramatically help you improve your social media skills without you spending a dime. These resources come in the form of podcasts and blogs, and there are lots to choose from. So in order to help you wade through all the resources out there, I curated the list down to six free resources that I know well help you improve your social media skills. (more…)
If you’re like me, you love free stuff. This is especially true when you’re dealing with your church budget and your creative needs. One area in which you can save some money is stock photos.
Previously, I took the time and compiled a list of 31 free photography sites for you to use and it a got a great response. So I thought I would follow up with 33 more places to find free stock photos for your church. Just like before, feel free to peruse the list below and get what you need. Also, remember to give credit to the photographer and obey any copyright restrictions. (more…)
Recently, I offered you a free copy of My Digital Toolbox. Inside the toolbox was the online tools that I use to run my day to day digital life. Today, I want to share with you a set of free tools that your church can use. You heard me, every one of these tools is absolutely free.
This list is by no means exhaustive, but these are tools that I think every church should be using. These tools will help you see how Google sees your church’s website, track important analytics and even create an online campus. Hopefully, you’ll find something that your church can use to improve its online presence. (more…)
