A few months ago I was in Southern California having a cup of coffee with my friend Jay Kranda after speaking at a Conference in the area. One of the things I shared with Jay was the consistent feedback that I would get after one of the conferences where someone would say: "Do you have this recorded somewhere, because I really wish ______ could have been here to hear this." Jay and I decided over that cup of coffee that we should record something like this making available a full-day Social Media Conference On-Demand where the Q & A never ended. On that day we set a day to record, laid out a basic outline, and got to work creating what we now call the Social Media Church Basics.
As we prepared for this course, I began looking back as it was about 3 years ago that I began writing my book Social Media Guide for Ministry. The landscape has changed significantly and I no longer have to sell social media as a force, but I still need to coach people on how to get started and understanding the basics. That's what this course is all about. I would describe this as the 2.0 version of my book distributed in video this time rather than text. It also includes my good friend, Jay Kranda, which makes this a major upgrade!
In case you're not already familiar with Jay, he is the Online Campus Pastor at Saddleback Church in Lake Forrest California as well as my co-host of the Social Media Church Podcast. He also wrote a book about Social Media titled Social Media Made Easy. He's a great guy who gets social media and ministry and knows how to communicate it in a very practical way.
So, back to the course. The course is simple consisting of about 6 video training sessions from Jay and I lasting about 30 minutes each. Each session also includes a discussion board where we're expecting very lively Q & A. When you sign up for the course you get lifetime access to the course including ongoing updates and ongoing community through the Discussion Boards where Jay and I will both actively participate answering every question asked in a timely manner.
Here's a layout of the 6 sessions:
- Getting Started with Social Media
- Getting to Know Facebook
- Understanding the Other Social Networks
- Creating Great Content
- Managing Social Media
- Wrap Up/Tips & Tricks
