The dramatic change of church ministries live streaming creating video content online are certainly beneficial for church ministries. Unlike ten years ago, individuals are extremely busy, but if ministries can still get parishioners to watch sermons on the go, it’s a win for all. Whether they are on vacation or off doing things with family, their ministry is right alongside on their cellphones. The rat race of life should no longer be a factor. Just take out your smart device and you are there. Because of this, live streaming over the internet has become so popular. People don’t have to miss out on a church service even if they are in another county. The majority of these ministries accept offering on their websites so ministries won’t miss out it members are not at the physical location. They can give virtually. For these reasons, live streaming is rising, which has contributed to the growth of mobile video by and large. Lots of people are more frequently watching content on his or her smartphones and tablets, which has forced companies to change their approaches. Live streaming has developed into a focal point for big companies. They are projecting streaming videos to be a top marketing strategy in the future. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, and YouTube invest significant sums of money into building and enhancing their own live stream platforms, as stated by the Financial Times.
On the list of HUGE thing which is helping video content to become so well received is the rise in mobile video viewing. Google in addition to search engines are looking at how contents fits on mobile devices. Church targeted audience is focus on young and on the go people. As video becomes mobile-first, you will continue to see large online companies and churches switch more to video content. Our company is broadcasting to Facebook, Ustream and YouTube. I expect this to start to be more and more common for places of worships. Reaching teens is a huge segment of the population that stream videos. Therefore 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 only serves to 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 concentration.
Figures give evidence that live video is more fascinating to audiences: 80% would rather 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 images combined.
The Live chat options is essential for religious leaders which enable someone with the broadcasting church to interact with followers in real time. It’s also easy to apply 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 expired.
All of these functions are easy to implement and let churches not only to enhance their live streams but 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 very long time now and are expanding their offering. Then there are new smaller organizations that just start their live online church streaming ministries videos broadcast. The low cost now is helping small budget churches to rival larger better known churches. This has help organizations everywhere to use their online ministry as an outreach tool. Most major platforms are presently offering some form of video archived or live streaming. According to 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 intend to outreach on the web and in their community must not ignore the power of some sort of live or archived video storage online. You can use it to do many things. One may use these videos for nursing homes that have a worship hall. This provide them with the abilities to host church service on location which will remove the need to transport their members to a church. The same is feasible for Ronald McDonald House, senior centers, foreign missions and a whole host of community outreach programs.
Premium quality online church broadcast is a great way to draw new people to your ministry. Churches that are growing and thriving with live streams will need to have a great presentation. It’s very important to make effort to put out the very best presentation to the audience. Because if it is not of a elevated level you will turn potential newbies off. So it is tremendously important to make sure the presentation is at a very 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 people who cannot sing or speak may have worked or hold people in the physical church, but not people online. They may easily move on to another church website that will give them a much better presentation. It doesn’t necessarily 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 Christ as their personal savior, the broadcast has to be perfect or else new people will not stay after they tune in.
When your live broadcast is attractive, then there are lots of benefits you will enjoyed. First people will give to your ministry because people like when churches or corporations are well organized. You will draw new members because people love to be a 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’ll 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 encourage them to come and join that ministry.
If everything is aligned as per the above recommendations, I think your ministry will grow 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 news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Because of the amount of churches live streaming ,it has created stiff competition. We encourage ministries to live broadcast their live streams on our website to stay ahead of their competitors.
In the past churches that were on the net and streaming live were medium to mega churches. First you would need lots of money to get the encoders as well as 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 in the near future for churches which are streaming live via the internet. Every one of these churches have invested heavily into websites and equipment, but haven’t realized there is certainly more to getting new clients online than just streaming. If your website were never generating new visitors or you weren’t getting a plethora of new people to your site in advance of live streaming or archiving your church services. They won’t find your web site after you start broadcasting on the web. Word of mouth is good, but no one should limit their church increase in this digital age just to the individuals they know. With the archived and On-demand video streaming improving churches need to find ways to tap into this increasing booming trend.
The key to being successful for all websites is to be able to be discovered 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 google. Let’s think this through. If you’re selling cameras and you have a million other websites selling cameras, how will your website get to the front of the line so potential customers can find your page with the cameras you are selling?
This is where Streaming Churches Online can help your preaching ministry. We don’t just help churches stream online. We get new clients 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 website. These are steps that church administrators should research to find out where they are in search. Unfortunately most church administrators only believe all you have 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 huge amounts of cash to raise your church name recognition, your church name recognition is low. Only when 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.
