Beyond an active social media presence, what can you do? Mail gets tossed and flyers left behind, but a mobile app keeps your churchgoers tuned in even when they’re not in the pews. Below are 5 main ways a mobile app can help you build a better community.
The simple-to-use Events feature is a wonderful way to pack your calendar. Members can view event details in just a couple clicks and RSVP right through the app. You can update event information at any time and notify users of upcoming fundraisers, bible studies, potlucks, and more.
Up the ease of giving by accepting donations through a Merchandise feature or linking to your website’s donation page. It’s great way to reduce paper waste and give your congregation a quick way to chip in, no checkbook required. You can also sell tickets to next month’s fundraiser or your very own churchandise (that’s church merch).
Keep your daily messages on your members’ minds. Recorded sermons are easy to share and promote. Upload an mp3, sync up your church’s podcast, or link to your YouTube channel to host recordings through your app. Users can tune into the sermons they missed or re-listen to their favorites right within the app.
You’re just a few clicks from reaching users anywhere, anytime with unlimited push notifications. They’re more cost-effective, less time-consuming, and easier to create than text message marketing or email newsletters. Link to your hosted sermons, remind people about tonight’s event, and get creative with custom messaging options. Users can click through to view the essential content after you grab their attention with a pop-up notification. It’s a great way to keep your congregation in the know.
Grow Congregational Reach
Rather than circulating a sign-up form after services, invite users to join your mailing list when they launch your app. You can start a new email list through the app or integrate with a 3rd party newsletter service. Either way, you’ll be boosting your subscribers with each new download and eliminating the paperwork.
