In The Press – Voyage Dallas Magazine

Hello Friends!

Our Founder and CEO, Tisha Holman was featured in VoyageDallas Magazine! VoyageDallas thinks if people knew more about the lives, journeys, struggles, values and background stories of the local business owners, artists, etc they would be more engaged with them, more likely to do business with them and support them in other ways. They believe the best way to do that is to help get the stories of local hidden gems out there, because once people get to know each other at a deeper level they are confident our communities will become even closer and more supportive.

Hello Friends!

I am very excited about the launch of my new book, Go Ye Into All The World Wide Web. In the book, I discuss the idea of churches, pastors and leaders approaching their efforts to build their digital footprint from a different perspective. Instead of digital marketing, it is Social Ministry.

To me, Social Ministry goes beyond social media – it encompasses a ministry’s entire digital presence: website, email, apps, podcasts and social media.

Here is an excerpt from Go Ye Into All The World Wide Web where I delve into this concept a bit deeper:

We are living in different times. In order to reach the next generation and keep your members engaged, your ministry has to have a solid presence in the digital marketplace. “Going into all the world” has taken on a new connotation: a strong digital presence allows your ministry to impact the world beyond the pews. Do you have a plan in place that positions your ministry to operate with a spirit of excellence? Is your team (both staff and volunteers) equipped with the skills, tools, and resources needed to support the ministry online? 

I have worked with many organizations, large and small, that see the value of digital marketing and social media in today’s competitive marketplace. I have sat at conference tables with some of the most talented marketing professionals developing robust strategies to accomplish the goals of the organization in a variety of industry verticals. While I am a staunch advocate for this process, I think it should be approached differently in the church. When it comes to impacting lives for the kingdom of God, the bottom line should be souls, not traditional marketing deliverables. Now don’t get me wrong, there is definitely a business side to churches venturing into the digital arena. Inherently, having an online presence comes with additional operational costs and a skilled staff to make things happen. However, it is my position that in the midst of the operational costs, staffing needs and the monetization possibility of this work, the main thing needs to stay the main thing: The Great Commission.

So, let’s define social ministry. Social ministry is the untapped, often underestimated opportunity the local church has to disciple and change lives through its online platforms. The task is great, but the plan is simple. The following pages will give you the framework you need to develop a solid plan for your ministry in the digital arena. The plan will give you insights from two perspectives: practical tactics, concepts and mechanics, and the more God-inspired impact you can have through social ministry. You need the information that defines the practical needs to implement the principles I will explain. However, with that comes how things can be implemented in a way that still allows you to approach the work in alignment with what God has called you to do.

Your church’s social ministry should ultimately be an extension of everything that is going on within the four walls of your building. Advancements in modern technology have given you the power to reach far beyond the pews! Once you have a strong foundation laid, build upon it by developing ministry-centric campaigns that have a primary objective to touch souls and enrich the lives of the people you serve. Prepare to mind God’s business in the digital space.

As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to go into all the world and spread the gospel. Do not lose sight of that and I surmise you will stand in awe of the ways God will enlarge your territory, just as he did Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10.

Until next time…keep minding GOD’s business as you build your Social Ministry!

Hello Friends!

Today, personalization is the key to marketing. According to research, 2/3 of millennials expect marketing to be personalized to them and will unfollow a brand if they feel it lacks authenticity. So, how do we create messaging that doesn’t feel packaged, but rather personalized to who our customers are and what they want?

One way to do that is to create a buyer persona.


A Guide to Buyer Personas

What is a Buyer Persona?

A buyer persona is a fictional representation of who your customer is. The intelligent understanding of your customer base is essential for creating effective marketing, sales, and branding plans. Without an accurate understanding of your buyer’s demographic info, how they buy products, and common pain points, it is impossible to develop the right product with the right messaging.

Once we have an understanding of who our buyer is and what they want, we can create content that adds value, develop products, and create a sales funnel that will lead to conversions.

How it Works

How do you create a buyer persona that accurately captures your idealized customer?

It all comes down to research. The easiest pool of data is your current customers. Can you identify any patterns in your customer base? Are they based in one region or one type of region? Are they of a certain age group? Do men prefer your product to women?

By asking these questions, we can begin to create a fictionalized persona that includes the gender, location, income level, education, family situation, and hobbies and interests of our customers.

Another tool that we can use is Facebook Audience Insights. This is a very powerful and underutilized pool of extremely helpful data. By using this tool and others like it, we can see who our customers are, the pages they like, where they tend to live and work, and what they like to do. We can even see who is liking our competitors’ page and the things they like as well.

The other thing that we want to do is gather real-time analysis from your customer base. Reach out to your customers about their experience, and even reach out to those who decided not to become customers and find out why. That way you can include real quotes and common obstacles in your buyer persona.

We also want to understand what your customers’ goals are. These can be related to your product, but also don’t have to be. Understanding the goals and aspirations of your customers is a great way to add depth to your persona and is essential for creating effective and personalized marketing. Remember, great brands are the solution to someones’ problem.

After we have gathered all of the relevant information the last step is to create a name for our buyer persona. If your product is a hiking equipment company, you may want to name your persona Hiker John. Then you can list his relevant demographic information.

He lives in Boulder, CO

He is 30 years old

He works at a technology company and makes a salary of 100,000/year

He is married and has two dogs

Once we understand who John is and what he wants, it becomes much easier to ask questions like What does John want and how can we give it to him? What are his dreams and aspirations?

This fictionalized persona can be one of many. Sometimes, our customers can be divided into groups based on gender, income, or location.

Utilizing buyer personas is a powerful marketing and sales tool for organizations building data-driven digital marketing strategies. Knowing both your core and target audience well help you communicate with them in more effective, authentic ways. Do not miss this integral part of your digital strategy.

Until next time…keep minding your business.
