Mar 10, 2023
Hi Church Leaders!
We know you're always looking for ways to connect more meaningfully with your congregations, and that's why we're excited to talk to you today about Subsplash. If you're not already familiar, Subsplash is an incredible tool that's transforming the way churches engage with their communities in our digital world. And as a Church Digital Marketing Agency, we've had the pleasure of helping many churches navigate and maximize this platform.
Now, we've all been there, right? You get a shiny new piece of tech or software, you scratch the surface, and before you know it, you're stuck in a rut, only using the features you learned in the first week. We've seen it happen with Subsplash too, and it's a real shame because this platform has so much more to offer. So, let's dive right in and uncover some of the amazing features you might not be using... but definitely should be!
1. Sermons On-Demand
The ability to access sermons on-demand is a game-changer. Remember when your congregation had to physically be present to hear the message? Those days are long gone. With Subsplash, your sermons can be available anytime, anywhere. It's like having a 24/7 open church! We've seen churches that upload their sermons regularly experience higher engagement rates and reach people far beyond their local community.
2. Subsplash Giving
One of our clients, a small-town church, saw their donations double after they started using Subsplash Giving. This feature makes it incredibly easy for members to give right from their phones. And the best part? The platform handles all the financial details, so you don't have to.
3. In-App Messaging
Community is at the heart of any church, and Subsplash's in-app messaging takes it to a whole new level. It's like having a continuous coffee hour at the tips of your fingers! We've seen churches use this feature to send out daily inspirational messages, quick updates, or even just to check in with their members.
4. Digital Bulletins
Remember the rustling of papers as everyone pulled out the bulletin during service? Well, with Subsplash, you can make your bulletins digital! Not only does it save paper (hooray for being green!), but it's also a great way to ensure that everyone always has the latest information. One church we worked with even saw an increase in event participation after they started using digital bulletins!
5. Live Streaming
With Subsplash's live streaming feature, you can reach your congregation no matter where they are. We've seen churches use this to stream Sunday services, Bible studies, and even concerts. It's like having a broadcasting station right in your pocket!
6. Event Registration
We all know how chaotic event planning can be. But with Subsplash's event registration feature, managing sign-ups is a breeze. We've seen churches use this to organize everything from small group meetings to large community outreach events.
7. Push Notifications
Push notifications are a great way to keep your congregation engaged. One of our clients used this feature to send out a daily verse and saw app usage increase by 20%. It's a simple yet powerful way to keep your congregation connected throughout the week.
8. Bible Integration
The Subsplash platform allows you to integrate Bible passages directly into your app. This is an amazing tool for Bible studies or for referencing scripture during your sermons. We've seen churches use this feature to create interactive sermon notes where attendees can click on a Bible verse and read it right within the app.
9. Media Library
Subsplash's media libraryis like your own personal treasure chest, where you can store all your church's digital assets. From sermons to music to photos from your latest retreat, everything can be organized and easily accessible in one place. We remember how one church we worked with transformed their app into a dynamic, engaging platform just by making the most of their media library!
Last, but definitely not least, is the group management feature. This tool allows you to create specific groups within your church community. We've seen it used for everything from youth groups to volunteer teams, and it's an amazing way to foster communication and coordination. One of our favorite success stories is a church that used this feature to mobilize their volunteer base during a local crisis, coordinating efforts swiftly and efficiently right through their app!
We hope you've enjoyed this little tour of Subsplash and its underused features. Remember, these tools are there to help your church thrive in the digital age. So, don't be afraid to experiment and see what works best for your community!
