Tonight (Tues 3/11) at 9 PM Eastern, I’ll be leading the weekly #ChSocM church social media twitter chat.

Topic: Where Church, Search & Social Collide – Local Reviews

Over the 2+ year’s I’ve been participating in #ChSocM chats we’ve discussed lots of different social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pintrest, Instagram and more. But tonight, for the first time ever, we’re going to discuss how churches can engage with local review sites like

  • Google+ Local
  • Bing Places (Bing Maps)
  • Yahoo Local Listings
  • Yelp
  • Superpages

These sites are search engines where people look for local organizations (including churches) and they also have a social component to them because people can post ratings and reviews.

Tonight we’ll discuss:

  • The benefits of engaging in local review sites
  • The downside of ignoring local review sites
  • The dos and don’ts of engaging in local review sites
  • And more!

Get a jump on tonight’s conversation by reading: The Ultimate Guide to Get Positive Online Reviews for Your Church

Then join our #ChSocM community of dozens of church social media folks tonight (Tuesday) at 9 PM Eastern right here!

If you’re interested in helping your church make better use of search engines, check out some of the other things we here at OurChurch.Com have going on in March during Marketing Month.
