If you’ve been using the Subsplash Platform for any period of time, you’re probably familiar with our Media Library and the ability to publish your sermons everywhere with just one click (Sound unfamiliar? Check out this video). But did you know that the Subsplash Platform also helps you expand the reach of your media content beyond just apps and websites? There are many ways you can take your media presentation to the next level, and each one is easily attainable with just a few clicks in the Subsplash Dashboard. Let's dive in.
Do you have an Amazon Echo, Google Home, or other smart speaker at your house? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just say “Alexa, play last week’s sermon”? Good news: you can do that! Echo and Google Home have the ability to pull feeds from your favorite podcasts on TuneIn. Don’t have a podcast on TuneIn yet? No worries; it’s actually quite easy to set up. One of the many advantages of using the Subsplash Media Library is the ability to generate podcast feeds. With just a couple clicks, you can create a podcast feed from right inside the dashboard. Simply drop that link into your TuneIn account, and boom…you’re all set. Now your community can listen to sermons with one simple ask.
Subsplash Apps are fully supported on Apple Watch. If your community has your app on their phone, they can easily access it on their Apple Watch as well. This is especially important for those of you who are utilizing push notifications (and if you aren’t, you should be! Check out this blog to learn more). Push notifications already receive significantly higher open rates than emails, and having the options to receive a notification on both your phone and your Apple Watch provides even more opportunity for increased visibility.
According to TechCrunch, over 37% of home streaming devices in the US are Roku devices. We’ve already tackled Apple TV and Chromecast, and Roku is up next! In the coming weeks, Subsplash apps will be fully supported on Roku, which opens up a new realm of options for home streaming and increasing your engagement. We are excited to add Roku to our list of supported platforms, and we will be sharing more details about that in the coming weeks. In the meantime, ask us about getting your app on AppleTV and Chromecast!
You already have your media displayed on your app and website. Now it’s time to present it everywhere else! Most people in your community probably have at least one of the devices listed above. Having your media content available in these spaces is not just about utilizing the latest new gadget. Rather, it’s about increasing engagement. Smart speakers, smart watches, and home streaming devices are just a few ways that people are presently engaging with content, and having a presence in those spaces creates more opportunities for people to engage with the gospel.
