Meet Al Gibson, publisher of US Christian
US Christian was started by Al Gibson during lockdown as a blog to encourage people and build their faith around themes of Faith, Hope and Love. Al also runs a commercial business, Countdown Creative Limited that specialises in content creation with access to a team of media specialists. He is a journalist who has many years of experience in the media and is an internationally published author and active online blogger. Al worked in communications at GOD TV for 18 years and has since developed a simple strategy to foster church growth and increase followers.
“Many organisations think social media is all you need to grow online, however, at US Christian and Countdown Creative we take a more holistic approach,” he says. “We also see the importance of having a blog site that answers the questions people are asking. This is what delivers better search results. Plus in this season where some Christian social media accounts have been marginalised, we think it’s crucial to build your own email database so you can update clients directly.”
We can help with your church growth or increase your ministry profile
There are many ways to increase church growth. We look at what can be accomplished online, with four main objectives. We believe you can grow online through:
- Creative copywriting;
- SEO-optimised content;
- Targeted social media posting; and
- Regular email campaigns.
Also, via US Christian we are also able to offer promotional packages that include compiling church overviews or ministry profiles or publishing a blog post about you / your church or ministry or a resource you offer. So this is a multi-pronged strategy to help you achieve church growth or facilitate a greater online presence.
“Increasing an online following all starts with creative copywriting,” Al continues. “Having compelling copy is crucial to getting your message across effectively. One needs to have the right hooks to arouse interest. This is why using a copywriter can be helpful. Somebody who can think out the box and give you ideas you never considered. At Countdown Creative we design with words.”
SEO OPTIMISED CONTENT is any online writing that contains the keywords that will cause you to rank higher in search results. One first determines what keywords are important in your community and then you accentuate them throughout your copy. This changes the way we write but is effective in increasing organic traffic. This should be an important way you get more hits on your website.
Countdown’s clients include churches, ministries and businesses. We serve clients from diverse backgrounds including a local Christian radio station, Christian business network, city newspaper and Christian bookshop as well as public figures, authors, motivational speakers and coaches.
