Heather Heuman | Social Media Marketing for Church Growth
#32: If you are listening to this episode as it’s released, it’s Feb 20, 2017. Before we get into today’s main content, I’d like to take a moment and share something with you. We started this Podcast in last August, and I have worked with a fantastic team - my dear editor Emma Victoria, and Assistant, Andrea. We are like female version of 3 Musketeers, week in and week out, we operate through 20 plus steps of process and get the episode up for you, our beloved listeners. And I have felt so honoured to interview over 30 experts and influencers in the marketing field to serve you.
Now as an entrepreneur and business owner, I take inventory regularly to see what works and what doesn’t. Not just in the financial ROI sense, but overall the effects of impacts as well. And as I have been under weather for last 3 full weeks, you know, the good thing about when you are sick, you got more time to pray and think. So this is what I have gathered so far: We are taking a break for the month of March, and really think and pray through for the podcast. It’s very highly possible we come back, but maybe with a more focused niche, not just Marketing overall. So this is what we will do: we will still upload one more episode for the month of February for next week, then we will take a break for the month of March. If you want to be updated for our new development, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. and if you have enjoyed the podcast, well, now it’s the time to tell us!
