Understanding Google and Facebook Analytics w/ Lauren McAllister

Show Notes available at SethMuse.com/31

 

Many of us in church communications are tempted to make online decisions based on something other than data. We heard a few people talking about an event, so we full on advertise that event because it must be important. We feel like attendance was up, so the Facebook ad worked well.

But great online decisions are not made this way. Data-driven decisions are the best decisions a church communicator can make and Lauren McAllister has a ton of insight in this area. 

You may want to get a pen and paper out for this one folks, because there's a LOT to digest!

Every church has an all-church email.

How can you live without it? However, most emails are deleted before they are even opened and you have to listen to the same old tired response when they don't show up for things:

"I didn't know about it!"

What if I told you that you could increase the chance your people would open and read your emails?

In this podcast, I talk in depth about the theory behind church email marketing and the three phases to writing a great church email that gets opened. Check it out!
