    • Staff Workshops
      • While The Agora 47 will handle the generic content, staff members should still understand what the parish is doing and why they are doing it. Individual staff members should also have an understanding of how to use the tools the parish is using in case of any last minute changes, or a wanting to utilize the social media tools in addition to the way The Agora 47 utilizes them.
    • Diocesan Workshops
      • “How and Why to Use Social Media in Ministry.” It is not easy to convince people to do new things, especially if it is something that they do not understand. When discussing social media with clerical and lay ministers, this is a regular problem.  For many others that see the value in utilizing social media in ministry, there is a concern of how to use it.  This workshop begins with why Catholic ministers should all be utilizing social media and provides several step by step approaches to get started in a manageable to maintain way.
    • One-on-One Trainings
      • Staff Contacts need to be able to use social media as well as possible. While The Agora 47 will manage their general content and posts, the parish may still want to post additional content, share changes, or engage in a way not discussed with The Agora 47.  This training will work on the ins and outs of Hootsuite, the social media channels being utilized, and some common dos and don’ts.
