Christian Media and Arts Australia Facilitates Web Development for Member Stations
With the increasing importance of digital platforms as a key tool of broadcasting and connecting with audiences, the team at CMAA has been actively driving a common digital strategy across our sector for the last 2 years.
The goal of this common strategy has been to unify the Christian broadcasting sector, to be able to easily share content across websites, reach new audiences and develop new growth areas for revenue. Instead of all working individually, we believe that working together is smarter and allows for growth in an area where there are very few human resources.
Thanks to a grant from the CBF, CMA is offering 12 regional and rural radio station members new fully mobile and donation optimised websites.
The CMA Member Content Hub, or web portal, is set to launch in two markets in October and roll out across the country through the following months.
