“Using Blogging to Spread the Story” with Alex “The Lightning”

YOUTUBE description: Wanna help spread the story?  Our very own resident social networking extraordinaire, O'Captain Alex (affectionately referred to as "The Lightning" by Jesse, Kristie and "That Guy's Mom") walks us through the steps involved in creating and maintaining additional blogger sites as one way to help spread the story.  The goal is to have a bunch of Matt Maher Story Team members create and maintain individual blogger accounts by tending to "The Lightning's" 4 recommended routines: 1. create your own blogger account (use your own creativity when sprucing up your site using Matt-esque decor!) 2. routinely copying/pasting Matt's blog from the www.themattmaherstory.com website onto your newly-created blogger site 3. regularly respond to comments/feedback left on your brand new blogger site using Alex's tips and techniques ~proven to increase blog activity and followers ~essentially will help us in spreading the story! 4. continually add new followers who would be blessed by/relate to Matt's blogs. By watching this brief tutorial, you will not only climb the social twitterflies corporate ladder, you will increase your brain power, lower your cholesterol and broaden your circle of influence----all with the click of a button!   So "be still", folks----we're in Be Still & Chill Country NOW.... Take it away, LIGHTNING! (Podbean is down now till 8 am, but will embed it later when maintenance is finished)

Welcome to the Matt Maher Story

Thank you so much for jumping in to help out.  We've had a great response since our Webinar and we are in the process of developing this site as a place you can come to find the resources that you need. Below are a few slides from our first Webinar Meeting.  We sent the complete PDF file as an attachment to the e-mail address you provided when you signed up via the Got SKILLZ! Survey.  If you have not received an e-mail from mattmaherstoryteam@gmail.com, please send us an e-mail (same address). Once we receive it, we will be sure to reply and confirm you've been added to our group mailing list.

Have a blessed weekend and thanks again for joining the TEAM!!!!



SKILLZ WEBINAR PowerPoint/First E-mail

Hi everyone!

We've added a new team to the mix,TEAM "Game Changers",and we are super excited about it! Once we get the recorded Webinar off to you should have a better understanding of ALL of the teams---but in the meantime----here's the skinny on "Team 'Game Changer's..."

Team "Game Changers"

There are some people who may not be in a position to personally volunteer their time or SKILLZ, but perhaps they have a connection/resource/partnership that could potentially "change the game." People who say things like "I know people" "I know stuff" or "I'll make a phone call" etc. should put their names on this list. Hooray for Game Changers!!!! Remember, you can sign up for more than one team!


Webinar Follow-up Survey

The "I GOT Skillz--PLUG ME In" Survey is available if you would like to complete it.

"I have a friend who wants to help! Where do I refer her/him?"

We've received this and several other similar questions this morning. First: fantastic question! You can tell them a couple of things:


The first thing you can tell them is to go to  http://www.themattmaherstory.com/ and take the "GOT SKILLZ" survey on the home page.

The direct link to this survey is here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Maher_Story_TEAM_SKILLZ Once they fill out the survey, we will add their e-mail addy to our TEAM group e-mail list and they will begin receiving e-mails from mattmaherstoryteam@gmail.com

2. Join us on Facebook!

You can also encourage them to join us on Facebook ! They can then join the Matt Maher Story Team FB group as we send out group messages there. They can also add Matt as a friend if they have not already done so.

See signature below in case any of you need additional links or want to distribute to others.

Hope you are "being still"---remaining stress-free---and enjoying your day!

God Bless You!

Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,

to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
