How to Produce an Effective Corporate Video

Corporate training and marketing videos are highly effective tools for reaching people. In the past, these tools were available only to big companies that had the funds for expensive cameras, video editing equipment, professional talent, and distribution services. Today, Internet and digital video technology has opened corporate videos to smaller companies, making them an affordable option. The Internet has also made it easier to deliver these videos to a widespread audience.

House Party Concept - White Paper By Mike Stickler

House parties are an effective way to raise large sums of money with minimal expense. But to be successful, they must be well planned, well attended, and well executed. They are clearly a fund-raising event and everyone knows it, so you shouldn’t be shy about why you’re having the party.

  • Always remember that the purpose of every contact with every existing or future donor is to establish and build sincere relationships with them. In addition to this, the specific purpose of a house party is two-fold:
  • Encourage existing donors to provide more financial support than they have given in the past.
  • Involve new donors who show a strong interest in your ministry.


  • The success of any house party directly relates to the concept that “money follows relationships.” The potential financial gain depends largely on how much time and effort the leaders of your organization have invested in creating and growing personal relationships with your existing, affluent supporters.

Tips for Building Your Online Presence

Mari Smith is a recognized authority on the use of social media. I recently asked her what tips she would give to ministry leaders who want to use social media to extend the reach of their ministries. Mari offered this great advice:

· Start small. Rather than try to update a dozen social media sites every day, start with one or two—Twitter and Facebook are good places to start. And then…

· Be consistent. This is key. To build a following, you need to post regularly and consistently. It’s better to post two tweets every day than to post five one day and none for several days. A daily Facebook post or a twice-weekly blog post can help give followers a reason to keep coming back to your site or to follow you on Twitter.

· Link your platforms to one another. That means that on your blog page you’ll want to post a link to your Facebook fan page, and vice versa. When you update your blog, post a link on Facebook and Twitter. Link them all back to your website.

· Use OPC—Other People’s Content. Linking to other valuable blog posts or retweeting a helpful tweet can be a great way to supplement your own content and give your followers and fans more value.

· Use the right social media platform for your purpose. Twitter is great for quick thoughts or information. A blog is best for developing your thoughts and having dialogue with your readers.

Are there any other expert social media tips you’d offer to fellow ministry leaders? FULL POST
