Live streaming has been growing, which has brought about the growth of mobile video as a whole. Lots of people are more frequently watching content on his or her smartphones and tablets, which has forced companies to alter their approaches. Live streaming has become a focal point for big 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.
One of the HUGE thing that is helping video content to become so sought-after is the boost in mobile video viewing. Google along with other 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 notice large online companies and churches switch more to video content. Our clients are broadcasting to Facebook, Ustream and YouTube. I expect this to start to be more and more common for places of worships. Reaching young people is a huge segment of the population that stream videos. This suggests the preacher must be articulate with a personality that they can feel during Live streaming.
Live streaming is a low-cost, easy-to-implement solution which simply not only 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 attention spans.
Figures give proof that live video is more appealing to audiences: 80% would prefer to 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 important for religious leaders which allow someone from the broadcasting church to interact with followers live. It’s also easy to implement 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 look at services in their language, expanding reach exponentially. While on demand video catch-up means messages endure long after the broadcast has finished.
All of these functions are easy to implement and enable 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 which have been using this technology in quite a while now and are expanding their offering. You’ll see new smaller organizations that just start their live online church streaming ministries videos broadcast. The low cost now is helping small budget churches to compete with larger more visible churches. This has help organizations everywhere to use their online ministry as an outreach tool. Most major platforms are currently offering some sort of video archived or live streaming. As suggested by one of the major internet backbone carrier. Their projection is by 2020 video streaming will be 80 % of the internet traffic.
Any ministry that would want to outreach on the internet and in their community must not ignore the power of some kind of live or archived video storage online. You might use it to do many things. You can use these videos for rest homes that have a worship hall. This give them 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.
High quality online church broadcast is a superb way to draw new people to your ministry. Churches that are growing and thriving with live streams must have a great presentation. It is important to make effort to put out the ideal presentation to the audience. Because if it is not of a elevated level you will turn potential new members off. So it is tremendously crucial that you 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’ll easily move on to another church website that will give them significantly 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 Christ 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 appealing, then there are numerous advantages you will enjoyed. First some people might give to your ministry because people like when churches or companies are well organized. You will 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 encourage 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 news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
