Maximize Your Church Communication With Modern Digital Signage

digital signs

Digital signage is more than just PowerPoint slides on TVs. Modern digital signage can improve the experience for your congregation, help them navigate your church, be informed about upcoming events, get important messages and collaborate, and share their ideas where it’s appropriate.

In this critical time, sending clear messages is more important than ever. As a leader, you are looking for more effective ways to send important messages, event schedules, and future events to your congregation. You want to be sure that the message has been received without having to individually remind everyone.

In this day and age, nothing can be as effective as visual communication, but to some who don’t have much experience with creating modern digital signage content this might sound too hard and time consuming. You are probably wondering how can I take time from my already busy schedule to update visual contents on my TV screens in my church?

I am going to show you some easy ways to turn your TV screen into your own digital assistant and how to create, upload, and change digital contents in minutes using OptiSigns Digital Signage apps to produce modern digital signage.

6 ways to use modern digital signage.

1. Create Content.

Once your TV screen is set up, you’ll need to upload contents and schedule times for which you want to display those contents. One simple way you can create contents with Optisigns is the Canvas app. Using thousands of existing templates created for any occasion, you can simply select a template, edit the text, and upload it to your screens in minutes. Using the canvas app is easy, you don’t need to be a digital media expert to create content anymore, and it will do most of the hard design work for you.

You can also use the tools you are familiar with like PowerPoint, Google Slides and start your project from scratch if you have previous experience creating content. Both options are very easy to work with, and they can get the job done for you quickly with the best quality.

2. Communicate Your Schedule.

An important function of modern digital signage for churches is to help communicate what’s coming up. You can leverage slide templates to quickly create signs that highlight single events. Or you can link up your shared Google or Microsoft Calendar and have it automatically update on your screens. Using a shared calendar can reduce the work needed to update your digital signs with upcoming schedules. It will also allow others to contribute simply by sending invites to the shared calendar.
