    Thanks CMS for posting this transcript! I’m currently helping out marketing a new church plant in the Pittsburgh area and was debating on what way to go aside from the standard organic SEO type optimizations. Right now we’re running some PPC ads on Google and Bing, but we may also consider Facebook. I have used Google and Facebook in the past (about 3 years ago) for another church plant and found Google to be more effective for translating clicks to in-person visits. However I can see value in Facebook’s content display network to develop better name recognition and visibility which we are sorely lacking right now. I equate Facebook ads to a postcard or radio/tv campaign where you’re really appealing to an audience that may not necessarily be looking for a church. But I would actually say Facebook could be better in the sense you can target specific demographics and do so affordably without the overhead of things like production and airtime/postage that you would encounter with traditional offline techniques. At any rate, this is a great discussion. Keep it coming!
