Boot Camp

In our one-day Social Phonics Boot Camps, veteran pastors, non-profit executives, and social mediaistas, Doug Pagitt and Tony Jones and Our Coaches will guide you through the basics of the most popular social media services, including blogging, Facebook, Twitter and free broadcast media. You will learn how, in just three 30-minute periods each week, you can dramatically increase your communication to members of your church, organization, or business — and, even more importantly, to those who have the potential to visit your church or business. Most importantly, we’ll help you determine your own social media philosophy, so that you’ll know exactly why you’re going online each week.

Imagine getting real-time feedback from your parishioners as you prepare your sermon, spreading the word about a church outreach program without buying a newspaper ad, or posting a YouTube welcome to new neighbors in your community. Imagine hearing what customers are saying about your business or organization.

All of this is possible, and it doesn’t have to be intimidating. In fact, we’ll make it fun!

The Social Media Bootcamp costs $125 and includes lunch. All you need to bring is yourself and your laptop (borrow one if you have to!). We meet from 9am till 4pm. Online registration is a breeze! (Each Boot Camp is limited to 50 registrants.)

We also schedule private boot camps for businesses and organizations — email us if you’d like more information.
