Research Marketing-Social Spread

We live in a world today where much of our communication and information is found through social media. In this portion of the curriculum we will explore some of these methods, giving you opportunity to not only learn about how they work, but also practice using them in preparation for your own ministry's promotion. We'll also explore the pluses and minuses of advertising on them.

Facebook

1. Create a personal account (if you don't already have one) and a business/ministry account. Research the directions on how this is done. Post some nice photos, talk about your ministry, etc. The assignment is for you to explore it and learn how this is done. 

2. Go to your 'Home' page. From there, look up, research, find related ministry sites. For example: Christian Dance Fellowship; National Liturgical Dance Network; Flag ministries, 4ever Praise Dance Network..TRUE WORSHIPERS, etc. Find the ones who have around 1000 members or more and join or ask to join the group. You should see them appear in your "Groups," once they accept. 

3. For practice, please take a post from the DFH Facebook page, like a conference announcement or maybe about the online school or even one of the posts taken from Pastor Wil's books and copy and paste it into these groups. Please be sure to always include a link to the particular page on the DFH website. Although, if you see another student's same post, please post it to a different group page:) Please no more than 10 group postings, as they block you if you do too many. By you posting DFH things, your name will appear and become more familiar to these groups.

4. Do the same thing for something you are doing. Like if you are holding a workshop, or you created a new flag, or you are doing a dance at your church, or an encouraging scripture, or a Hebrew word/definition from the DDD book, or something that would be of interest to these groups. Post it in 10 groups. 

5. Write at least 200 word essay about advertising in Facebook. Like the basic cost, how it is done and is it worth doing, etc. Please post it HERE. OR you may talk about it in a video and upload to the L3 Facebook page. If you do a video instead of an essay, please let us know in the essay location. Thanks.
