Not long ago churches that were online and streaming live were medium to mega churches. Initially you would need lots of money to acquire 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’s a new challenge coming for churches that are streaming live over the web. Many of these churches have invested heavily into websites and equipment, but haven’t realized there’s more to getting new customers online than just streaming. If your website were never generating new visitors or you weren’t getting an influx of new people to your site in advance of live streaming or archiving your church services. They’ll likely won’t find your website after you start broadcasting via the internet. Word of mouth is good, but no one should limit their church increase in this digital age just to folks they know. With the archived and On-demand video streaming escalating churches should find ways to tap into this up and coming booming trend.
The solution to being successful for any 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 search engines. Let’s think this through. If you’re selling cameras and you have many other websites selling cameras, how will your internet site get to the front of the line so future prospects can find your page with the cameras you are selling?
This is how Streaming Churches Online might help your preaching ministry. We don’t just help churches stream online. We get new business 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’re 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 web-site. These are generally steps that church administrators should research to find out where they are in search. Unfortunately most church administrators only believe all they require to do is start streaming and the potential new member shows up. 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? Unless you are spending plenty 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.
