Upcoming Training Sessions

Here’s our schedule for September, October, and November.  I set the schedule three months out. This enables me to respond quickly to new trends, major industry / platform changes, and feedback from program members.

 

October

Mastering your “Plan A Visit” Strategy
Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at 7pm EST

Digital culture has changed how many people connect with congregations. When people end up on your website, that’s the time to lock in a visit. Instead of a vague “come any time” approach, we can help people RSVP to visit on a specific date. We’ll go through “plan a visit” pages, autoresponders, and the corresponding strategy and benefits in detail.

November

Harnessing the Power of Your Podcast
Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 7pm EST

Many leaders fear audio podcasts keep people from visiting. The opposite is true! Audio podcasts are frequently used to evaluate congregations, including deciding to visit and ultimately join.  Podcasts also help existing members and volunteers stay engaged. With podcast and smart speakers growing in popularity, your audio ministry is more valuable than ever! We’ll discuss using podcasts for outreach, education, membership development, and stewardship. If you hold weekly services that include a sermon, you should be recording audio of these talks.  If you do, distributing this content as a podcast is a must!

Facebook  Live Sessions

In addition to my monthly trainings, I go live frequently in my UU PLANET LEADERS Facebook Group.  Often I’ll address questions, explore a brand new idea, discuss a resource, or interview other leaders.

Now I know some of you hate Facebook, and you have good reason to.  For this reason, I also post recordings of Facebook Live sessions to Youtube and share via my email list.
