If you’re an audio-based enthusiast, you’d probably heard about Clubhouse. Clubhouse blew up fast during the pandemic and became the talk of the town as celebrities, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders all flocked in to host live discussions on the audio-based social media app.The social media app attracted many high-profile personalities, and for a time, it provided a unique way for people worldwide to interact, connect, and engage.
But Clubhouse's success was short-lived due to the declining quality of content, as the platform became overrun with spammers. The app's exclusivity also hindered its growth, and it failed to pay creators while it still had the opportunity. Twitter and Facebook also started to launch their own audio-only features, competing against Clubhouse’s exclusivity.
Tune in this podcast episode as, DK Hammonds shares with Nils Smith and Aaron Magnuson what he thinks were the reasons for the rise and fall of Clubhouse.
Posting full sermons online has become standard for most churches, but short-form video has taken over social media, and churches have struggled to keep up. The content is in the sermon, but the time required to edit horizontal to vertical while finding the right clips, editing the captions, and everything in between is no small task!
In this podcast, Corey Alderin explains how they’ve simplified the process of creating short-form content from sermons and why they’ve done it with the trends on TikTok, Instagram, and even YouTube.
Many people say that a church doesn’t need to worry about reviews. But we think otherwise.
It doesn’t matter if reviews are on Yelp, Google, or any other social media platform. A review is still a review—and it matters. Pastors and leaders must understand that reviews can affect the church more than you think. They don’t exactly tell the world how God is moving in your community, but they tell you that some things ought to change.
Reviews by real people–newcomers, regular churchgoers, volunteers, and staff–should matter more. Every opportunity should be an avenue to improve and encourage others in telling how the church has made an impact in their lives.
Watch this episode of the Social Media Church Podcast as Nils Smith and Aaron Magnuson discuss getting reviews online. Learn why you shouldn’t ignore the feedback you receive, what you can do, and how you can highlight the work that God is doing.
