Should you use a custom link for your livestream?live, church ·
There’s always a lot going on when you’re getting ready to start a livestream, especially when you’re livestreaming your church service. Besides making sure the service is running smoothly, you need to make sure the software, lyrics, camera(s), and live feed is working. On top of all that, you have to make sure people are able to find the event, and ideally put a link on your website and other social media platforms.
One way to take some of the burden off you on the day of the event is to set up a custom link that changes every week to point to your livestream when it’s running, and have it point to replays of your past livestreams when you’re not live. Most link shorteners have the option to change your link every week, but Jelly URL offers some features that make it even easier for you.
Schedule the change in advance
If you have the link to your livestream before it actually starts, you can set up your Jelly URL link to automatically change when the event starts. It’s as easy as creating a link, adding a schedule, and pasting the link. Once you upload the video to your website, you can update the Jelly link to point to that.
Use a nice looking domain
With Jelly URL, you can use the event.church domain name to make your link stand out. You can customize the ending so the link looks something like event.church/your-church, and share that with all your viewers. People will always have an easy time finding your service, because they’ll be able to use the same link every week.
Try it out
Jelly URL offers a free trial of the service, so you can try it out to see how easy it is. You’ll have access to all the features with the free trial, so you’ll be able to use it to it’s full potential.
