Now that your church is streaming your sermons online all relevant parties is looking to see a great turnout to their normal location. The questions they really should ask themselves are.
How many people are watching the sermons whether live or archived?
The fact of the matter is there are wide ranging things that goes with an effective live streaming ministry. Not because you are live streaming it doesn’t mean people are watching. Ask yourself this question, how many people arrive at your church and told you they came basically because they found your website on the web? If the answer is “0” that can be the same answer for when you start streaming. Your website will not become a top site where hundreds of people start following you because you start streaming. It takes more than a broadcast over the web to draw people to your internet site. You may get a few thru person to person, but the question is are you getting what you thought you should be getting from streaming your broadcast over the internet?
Something even more that you should always ask your webmaster to produce is analytics. It will tell you if you are getting visitors to your website and where these hits are originating. Do not get caught up in streaming and believe this is it. There are much more to a successful ministry online than just getting the hardware and software and start streaming your church services.
I do think video streaming will be the next big thing in coming years. Live streaming platforms have allowed church goers to experience their sermons and events from all over the world in real time. As more and more churches transfer to the 21st century, they are starting to check out dynamic and affordable live
streaming services. If you’re seeking to broadcast and reach others outside your congregation you have to find a competent webmaster or seek out website like streaming churches that are search engine-optimized to allow people who don’t know your church name to find your ministry online thru keyword and key phrase.
There are numerous reason why you’d choose to broadcast could be that you want to reach those followers who are sick or injured, too old to make it in person or people traveling who wants to continue to participate in their particular faith community. You can help the number of active participants in the church community, and possibly even the attendance of the church, by letting members who rarely attend watch the services from home. Archiving your live streams and causing them to available as video on demand is also a great way to lock in the experience of each event forever and lets those who missed the live event stream watch it later. Live streaming has provided many people with the chance to join in the celebration and gives no time before seen flexibility for church goers.
