Live streaming continues to grow, which has triggered the growth of mobile video by and large. Customers are more frequently watching content on their smartphones and tablets, which has forced companies to change their approaches. Live streaming has changed into a focal point for large companies. They are projecting streaming videos to be a top promotion in the future. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube invest significant sums of money into building and enhancing their live stream platforms, as stated by the Financial Times.
On the list of HUGE thing that is helping video content to become so well received is the surge in mobile video viewing. Google along with other search engines are looking at how contents fits on mobile devices. Church targeted audience is now focus on young and on the go people. As video becomes mobile-first, you will continue to notice large online companies and churches switch more to video content. Our customers are broadcasting to Facebook, Ustream and YouTube. I expect this to get more and more common for places of worships. Reaching teens is a huge segment of the population that stream videos. This implies the preacher must be articulate with a personality that they can feel during Live streaming.
Live streaming can be a low-cost, easy-to-implement solution which not just expands reach for religious organizations but strengthens existing communities. In the modern world, churches are like any other businesses competing with other churches for hearts, minds – and ever-diminishing focus.
Figures show live video is more appealing to audiences: 80% would prefer watch live video than read written text, for example, while Facebook estimates that nearly 80% of online audiences are busy watching videos. Broadcasting via social media also facilitates sharing, providing churches with an invaluable tool for spreading the word; social video generates 1200% more shares than text and drawings combined.
The Live chat options is very important for religious leaders which enable someone belonging to the broadcasting church to interact with followers instantly. It’s also easy to include in online donations during or after broadcasts, helping religious bodies fund their growth while enabling followers to play a role by contributing. Simultaneous multilingual streams enable worshipers to view services in their language, expanding reach exponentially. While on demand video catch-up means messages endure long after the broadcast has finished.
All this functionality are easy to implement and enable churches not only to enhance their live streams and also add meaning and value for their followers. Some organizations are expanding their teaching in other ways.
There are those large churches that have been using this technology for a short time now and are expanding their offering. You can also find new smaller organizations that just start their live online church streaming ministries videos broadcast. The low cost now is helping small budget churches to go toe to toe with larger more visible churches. This has help organizations everywhere to use their online ministry as an outreach tool. Most major platforms are now offering some sort of video archived or live streaming. As per one of the major internet backbone carrier. Their projection is by 2020 video streaming will be 80 % of the online traffic.
Any ministry that would want to outreach online and in their community should not ignore the power of some form of live or archived video storage online. You may use it to do many things. You can use these videos for assisted living facilities that have a worship hall. This give them the abilities to host church service on location which will take away the need to transport their members to a church. The same can be done for Ronald McDonald House, senior centers, foreign missions and a whole host of community outreach programs.
High quality online church broadcast is a wonderful way to draw new people to your ministry. Churches which are growing and thriving with live streams need to have a great presentation. It is important to make effort to put out the very best presentation to the audience. Because if it is not of a excellent level you will turn potential newbies off. So it is tremendously crucial that you make sure the presentation is at an extremely high level because it has to be able to hold the attention of the people who newly discover your ministry online. Pointing your live feed to a banner or having those who cannot sing or speak may have worked or hold people in the physical church, but not people online. They will easily move on to another church website that will give them a better presentation. It doesn’t matter your denomination. Catholic, Baptist, Christian – no denomination, Pentecostal, Churches of Christ, Nondenominational, Evangelical, Church of God, Holiness/Holy, Full Gospel, Independent Christian Church, Born Again or any other name that name Jesus as their personal savior, the broadcast has to be perfect or else new people will not stay after they tune in.
Once your live broadcast is attractive, then there are lots of benefits you will enjoyed. First individuals will give to your ministry because people like when churches or organizations are well organized. You’ll draw new members because people love to be part of something good. Your current members will refer families and friends to the ministry because it makes them proud to be part of something good. They will post links of your to social sites and send it in emails to friends, family, co-workers and everyone they know. If your members are excited, their excitement will rub off on their friends. This will even go further than just online. Once new members start visiting your physical location your members will spread their enthusiasm to them which will inspire them to come and join that ministry.
If everything is aligned as per the above recommendations, I think your ministry proliferates locally and nationally. Streaming Churches Online would love to broadcast your ministry on our website and give you the notoriety your ministry deserved to spread the word of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
A short while ago churches that were on the net and streaming live were medium to mega churches. You would need lots of money to obtain the encoders and the equipment that you would need to be able to go live. What a difference a few years have made! Today anyone and everyone is live streaming their churches. Thanks God for small encoders which are a lot cheaper and smaller.
There is a new challenge coming for churches which are streaming live on the internet. Many of these churches have invested heavily into websites and equipment, but haven’t realized there is more to getting new clients online than simply streaming. If your website were never generating new visitors or you weren’t getting a plethora of new prospective clients to your site previous to live streaming or archiving your church services. Probabilities are they won’t find your product after you start broadcasting online. Word of mouth is good, but no one should limit their church growth in this digital age just to the individuals they know. With the archived and On-demand video streaming improving churches must find ways to tap into this up and coming booming trend.
The real key to being successful for all websites is to be able to be found by customers or potential members using keywords searching for what you are offering on the 1st few pages of search engines, Google, Bing, Yahoo and all other major search engines. Let’s think this through. When you are selling cameras and you have many other websites selling cameras, how will your internet site get to the front of the line so prospective customers can find your page with the cameras you are selling?
That’s the place where Streaming Churches Online might help your preaching ministry. We don’t just help churches stream online. We get new customers every day on our site looking for church related news and videos. They found our site not just thru word of mouth, which is a great thing. They are finding us thru search phases according to what they are looking for on churches which are live streaming their services online. Visitors who are looking for words with online church or if they type in live church online they will be able to find our site. These are steps that church administrators should research to find out where they are in search. Unfortunately most church administrators only believe all they need to do is start streaming and the potential new member will come. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Most of the times when we mentioned these things to churches they look up their church by typing their church name in major search engines and their church come to the top of that search engine they believe things are going well. For the most part, some of the people we talked to seems satisfied that their ministry name is on a search engine. Unfortunately people find it hard to make the connection as to when they are looking for a Plummer online. If you knew the name of the Plummer you would just call that company. What one would normally type in is “best Plummer in Philadelphia” for example. This is no difference to a search engine when you are looking for a church. Just typing a church name and believe someone else is going to find your ministry is believing your ministry has great name recognition and everyone on the web is aware of your church. One question we always ask potential customers; how many people on the web know your church name? If you aren’t spending lots of money to raise your church name recognition, your church name recognition is low. Only if you have a very popular ministry where there is some other platform that is driving people to inquire about your website then you will need better marketing for church growth.
This is when Streaming Churches Online can help your ministry. We will market your ministries online by you live streaming or achieving your sermons with us.
