This week’s tool:
More than a backup storage mechanism, dropbox is a great way to share files between departments, send proofs to other team and get their feedback on the sidebar next to the document itself. For live collaboration, have a shared dropbox folder to save images, quotes and videos from your phone, tablet, laptop desktop or all of the above. Click here to sign up for free trial account!
Nicole asks about how many social media channels her church launch needs. Here are a few ideas:
- Get intentional and successful on one channel before expanding to other channels. You’ll be more engaged with your audience if you do one channel well, rather than a few channels poorly.
- If you’re not sure which one channel to start with, I would recommend Facebook: It’s already got the largest audience, and the most versatile options for what you can post.
- If you’re not sure if you need a Facebook page or Facebook group, read this info here!
- You’re going to have a lot of decisions to make in your first 30 days managing your Social Media. Here is an article about what to expect and what conversations to have with your team.
- When you’re ready to move to a second channel, consider instagram. You can do live ‘stories’ like snapchat, video and image posts with longer status than twitter.
