Did You See The ‘He Gets Us’ SuperBowl Advert?

Did you see the ‘He Gets Us’ SuperBowl Advert? I know the ad has divided opinions. Many have said they are a waste of money. Lets face it, millions of dollars spent on any advert at the SuperBowl, some would argue it could be spent on more ‘worthy’ endeavours. Others would say it takes a massive effort to get into the American public’s consciousness. The ad itself is emotive, passionate and I would say powerfully speaking into culture. Watch the ad now. My personal opinion is that the ad creative is very good. I know that Jesus doesn’t need better PR. I know it’s not attempting to address th ..read more

One Big Strategic Shift In Social Media Your Church Needs To Take Advantage Of
Steve Fogg

Social Media is now a teenager! And like any teenager there are always changes that are happening. Since video emerged, one social media channel in particular has rapidly grown and since then there has been a massive shift I’ve observed. It wasn’t when Facebook or Instagram first started their video posts. Or when Twitter (remember that?) purchased Vine (remember that too?) to create videos. Tik Tok is the channel. As you may now know video is now dominating most growth on social media. The big shift though isn’t that it’s video. Video has been around for a while. And the tech Goliath of Meta ..read more

Massive Facebook Update Announced – Is This A Game-Changer?

by Steve Fogg

Well, well, well. Has Facebook finally seen the light? A slumping share-price. A drop in users, and not surprisingly, lower engagement. They also now have increasing competition from platforms they haven’t bought – Tik-Tok and YouTube. They may have made some updates which may turn things around for them.  Before I get to that, I just want to share my disappointment with you about Facebook. Honestly, if you look back through this blog you will have read my absolute support of this social media platform. But in a pursuit of the bottom line they really have made it a very unappealing platf ..read more

5 Mistakes Churches Are Still Making With Online Church
Steve Fogg
by Steve Fogg

Over the last two years churches have been pushed into the digital age. Some kicking and screaming. Some churches have embraced church online. Others still don’t really get it. Here are five mistakes I still see churches making with their online presence. Mistake #1: No Digital Strategy After the last two years in you would think that churches would adopt a model or a strategy. But many aren’t. They are simply live-streaming their whole service hoping something will stick. And growth will somehow just happen. Those who fail to plan (or strategise) plan to fail. If you want to learn how to gro ..read more

Steve Fogg

Facebook has just announced some huge changes to interest based targeting that may have a seismic impact for advertisers everywhere, and churches. They’ve decided to remove certain types of Ad targeting. Some of these audiences have been so instrumental to greatly expand the ability to reach people with the gospel online over the years. I’ve used many of them with great impact. Rather than declare which audiences I’ve used in the past, I’ll let you make up your own mind and read it on Facebook’s announcement here – Removing Certain Ad Targeting Options and Expanding Our Ad Controls. You just ..read more

Why Meta Should Matter To Your Church

If you haven’t heard the news, Facebook has just rebranded… well actually, it’s parent company has just rebranded. But unlike Google’s Alphabet name change, this will have profound implications for the future of the ‘Capital C’ Church around the world. It’s more than a rebrand. It’s a vision of the future of online. And some would say, life itself. To look forward and see why Meta will matter to your church we’ve got to look backwards. When web 2.0 emerged and from that social networks, new opportunities for the good news of gospel started to emerge. I remember the day way-back-when in the ea ..read more
