Once you’ve got your livestream set up, you’ll want people to be able to find your information and use it. Follow the steps below to help people worship along with you.
If you have a website:
If you haven’t already, I would recommend you create a page on your website with the following information:
- A link to your livestream.
- If you’re using Facebook and you don’t know how to do that, check out the tutorial on How to Livestream Via Facebook Live and start watching around the 5 minute 19 second mark.
- If you’re using Facebook live, I also recommend you include a blurb about not needing Facebook to view the livestream. You can link to this tutorial on How to view Facebook livestreams without an account.
- A schedule of when you’ll be livestreaming.
- Digital bulletins for people to use, preferably in PDF format, as that is most universally usable. To create a PDF from a Word document, go to File>Export>>Create PDF/XPS Document.
Though this creates a bit extra work, it makes it easier for people who aren’t used to livestreaming to find and utilize your livestream. I’m linking to what we did at St. Thomas in case that could be helpful. It’s not fancy, but it has all the necessary information listed.
If you don’t have a website:
I recommend you make regular Facebook posts and send out regular emails with the information above.
