Promoting your work can be awkward. You want to share your course with those whom it would help,
but how do you do this in a way that is humble and helpful — and not annoying or slimy? All the different social media platforms can be overwhelming. Which one is the best use of your time? How do you make the most of your current networks and find new networks to connect with your ideal course participant?
These questions and more are answered in this course with our Director of Engagement, Meg Calvin. She’s here to serve you as a marketing coach, cheerleader, and soundboard as you take your marketing strategies from obligatory to enjoyable.
After these five days, you will view marketing not only as another outlet for your artistic expression & content creation but also as a joyful opportunity to cultivate a conversation around a subject matter about which you are passionate.
You’ve worked hard to prepare a quality Christian course, now equip yourself to get it to the folks who have been waiting for you to share it with them through authentic marketing.
This course is worth 0.5 CEUs.
Past Students Said…
“Meg’s course opened my eyes a bit. I figured that if I had something to say, there would of course be people to hear it. Instead I learned that I have to put my stuff out where people can find it easily. And then I have to work at guiding them to those places. Especially if you have reservations about “marketing”, take the course.” – Rev. Ron McCreary
“It’s been decades since my one and only marketing course, so Meg’s course was such a blessing! Her focus on marketing as a way to help instructors help others through our courses gave us a foundation that supported all the work!
I also learned so much that I was able to create a full marketing plan for myself and all my courses! I’ve got an elevator pitch written for every course and dates for promoting courses throughout the rest of the year!” – Rev. Beth Perry

About the Instructor
Meggie Lee Calvin (Meg) is a wife, mom, speaker, podcaster, best-selling author, and coach who helps her fellow “spiritually-attuned go-getters” find confidence and certainty in who they were meant to be.
After serving as a Minister to Children and Families at a mainline protestant church for over a decade, she now serves as Director of Engagement for the Institute for Discipleship. Her days include recruiting participants and instructors for BeADisciple.com, producing and co-hosting the Listening Chair Podcast, and writing and speaking over grit and grace to her fellow spiritually-attuned go-getters.
The Bluebonnet Child: Finding Grace in Poor Soil (Wipf & Stock), is her first book. It seeks to equip others to offer hope to kids whose homes seem hopeless. Her second book, I Am My Own Sanctuary (Quoir Publishing), is a satirical yet holy tale written for other “recovering holy-rollers” and seeks to disrupt any thought patterns around ambition or self-love being the opposite of godly and good.
Meg has a BA in Religion and Philosophy from Southwestern College of Kansas and an MA in Children’s and Family Ministry from Bethel Seminary of Minnesota. Meg earned her Certification in Mindfulness at Wichita State University. She has served as a workshop presenter at both state-wide and national conferences.
Meg is obsessed with Saturday Night Live and loves to hunt for antiques, learn Spanish and line dance. She and her husband spend most of their free-time by the chimenea with some classic rock music, or playing board games with their daughter.
