Last week we saw Snapchat, Google, and Pew Research Center release resources that could be very useful for you as a church or a nonprofit or ministry so we have collected those. Two of them are marketing educational guides, and one of it is a research report. We will link to all of that in the show notes. Click on it and read it and take a look and equip yourself.The report from Snapchat is about targeted advertising. Targeted advertising is a question I get asked all the time at events and speaking engagements and even our academy. We get a lot of questions about how to target people when you advertise on social media. So Snapchat has really covered it in a very concise manner, covering the list of audiences and various other things related to that.So take a look.Google has released a list of products that people searched for in 2022, covering the entire year. It gives you a lot of insights about people’s behavior. And the research report is about what teenagers are posting on social media. Very insightful.
