Why Your Church Needs a Mobile Friendly Website

In today’s world, there is no doubt that you need a mobile friendly website.  What is that?  In simple terms, it is a website whose content can be seen well on a smaller device, such as a smartphone, tablet, etc. In other words, nothing is left out or distorted when someone is viewing it on a smaller screen.

According to the Herald Business Journal, there has been a decline in the number of personal computer sales but an increase of smartphone and tablet sales, 36 percent and 28 percent respectively. (reference: http://www.heraldnet.com/article/20130430/SCBJ14/704309880/1014/BIZ06)

It is also clear that a lot of people are using their phones to search for places and information.  And with the number of teens who have cell phones (can you remember the last time you passed by and didn’t see a teen checking their phone?), as they grow older, the number  of mobile searchers can only go up.

What does this mean for your church? You want to have a mobile friendly website so that when people pull out their phone to look for churches to attend in their area, your site appears readable and includes all the important information.  Details like your church address, service times, phone number, etc. are crucial if you want people to find you.

It’s very probable that someone would get up on a Sunday morning, decide they want to go to church, and check their phone for possible locations around them. If they pull up your church but can’t see the information they need, they will most likely go on to another church where they have the necessary details.

All of our websites come mobile friendly, so when we design a site for your church, you don’t have to worry about making any changes to it.  It’ll be all set!

Don’t lose out on visitors to your church because your website is not mobile friendly. Make the necessary changes as it will be worth the investment.
