When dealing with social media, there are many different types of acronyms you can try to memorize, but this one’s easy to remember and easy to implement.
Our signature method for Church social media is the EEIIRY strategy. The acronym stands for:
- About the past
- About upcoming events
- Stop the scroll
- Help your audience yield to God
How does this apply to my Church?
Each of these 6 posting strategies plays an important role in Church social media. Let’s look at them one at a time.
Education can be a post that is teaching about God or something Christian-related.
Encourage means to build up the Church through your post.
Inform means to let your social media community know something that’s important about your Church services (or something that’s going on).
Remind has to do with either a throw-back post (#TBT or Throwback Thursday) where you mention something from the past, or it can also be a post where you remind your community about something that is coming up.
Yield can either be a post that is on purpose making people stop and pay attention (to get their attention and “stop the scroll”) or to get them to pay attention to God during the day.
