Promote Your Art of Marriage Video Event

Your church and community will have many channels for promotion of The Art of Marriage video event. However, the best promotion is a personal invitation. Nothing beats a one-on-one conversation. Encourage your team to draw up a list of personal contacts and begin reaching out.

Work with your church office to set the event date and determine channels for promotion. Below is a list of possible ways you can promote the event through your church:

  • Distribute flyers in Sunday school classes or small groups.
  • Put up posters in well-traveled areas, such as hallways, classrooms, and restrooms.
  • Request an announcement on the church's website, in newsletters, and in the worship service; send an email to members.
  • Place a banner ad on your church website.
  • Ask your pastor to endorse the event and encourage couples to attend. A personal word from your pastor will be a powerful incentive.
  • Show a promotional video in a worship service and in couple's Sunday school classes or small groups.
  • Set up an information table before and after services in the church lobby. Show a promotional video, distribute information, and register couples.
  • Use your church's social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, etc.).

If you are opening up your event to other churches or the larger community:

  • Place posters in other churches and in community businesses (ask permission first).
  • Send an invitation through Facebook to your Facebook friends and ask them to forward it to their friends as well.
  • Send a Twitter message to your followers.
  • Request a public service announcement on your community's radio station and/or cable provider's community channel.
  • If feasible, place an ad on local websites and in local newspapers.
  • Send a press release to local media.
