Heading into Fall – Is Your Website Ready?

Pathway in the autumn forest

If you’re like me, you’re not ready to say goodbye to summer yet. Here in New York, our summer has been cooler and wetter than normal, so this year, we’re really not looking forward to colder weather coming. But from our experience, it comes anyway…ready or not. But at least we still have a few weeks of summer left. 🙂

The Perfect Time for a New Website

This may be the perfect time for your church to create a new website. Whether you have a site now or not, it’s a good time to have a fresh look. Most churches are gearing up for fall programs and events, and a website is the ideal place to tell about them. At our own church, we are doing a community outreach starting in September with a special series on “Experiencing God.” We will be sending out information via mail and also posting the information on our website and Facebook.  One of the people on staff happens to be a graphic designer and made a great banner to display on our homepage.   So that’s three ways to get the word out to the community. A website is definitely high on the list of church marketing tools today.

What season is your church in? Do you have a website? If not, the writing is on the wall – churches need websites and they need ones that are mobile responsive (meaning they look good on all devices, such as smartphones, tablets, etc.) Call us and we can have one ready for you to present your fall programs!

Does your church have an outdated site that is in need of refreshment? We can help with a new design. It’s so important for churches to keep their website updated with fresh content and pictures. People don’t want to see last years’ (or even last month’s) information and events. They want to know your church is alive and active. And the first place they’ll look today is online. So, don’t allow your site to sit dormant.

We are currently in the process of redesigning our own church’s website. While we like the current look (and so do our clients! It’s always the most popular design), we feel it’s time for a change. Just like there’s times you want to rearrange your living room furniture or put a fresh coat of paint on the walls, sometimes you just need a fresh website design.

We’re here to help your church start fall off with a bang! Contact us and let’s get started!
