Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Christian Church

At Gaebler, we've seen what great marketing can do for a small business. But if you own a Christian church, exceptional marketing may well be the determining factor in your long-term survival and success.

Still looking for a way to effectively market your Christian church? Although there is no single way that's right to market in this industry, there are a lot of wrong ways.

Great marketing translates into higher visibility and a larger customer base. With marketing pressure at an all-time high, your business needs to incorporate tactics designed to position a Christian church in the winners' column.

Newsletters

Newsletters can pack a promotional punch. How? By subtly using information to promote the benefits of your products and services. Unlike flyers and other advertising mediums, newsletters have an informational focus. In fact, the best newsletters encourage customers to take the next step without ever asking for a sale. These days, Christian churches rely on newsletters as cornerstones of a deliberate PR and marketing strategy, combining print and online distribution channels.

Marketing Expertise

Whether you're a marketing newbie or a seasoned veteran, you need to make a deliberate effort to educate yourself about innovative marketing principles. Entrepreneurs and leaders of Christian churches are usually hesitant to engage in high-risk marketing. Since inexperience raises the risk level, the quality of the marketer is just as important as the quality of the message. When in doubt, tap into either an internal or external knowledge base to design your company's marketing strategy.

Media Monitoring

Many marketing techniques are easy to evaluate. Direct mail can be evaluated by tallying the cost of inputs (e.g. a premium mailing list, printing, postage, etc.) and measuring the number of customer responses you receive from the campaign. However, measuring the amount of influence your brand has in the marketplace can be trickier. Fortunately, media monitoring has the ability to give your Christian church a sense of market presence and other variables that are difficult to quantify. If executed properly, media monitoring can help your brand get ahead of negative messaging and exert greater influence over news cycles.
