Church Websites Vital as New Survey Reveals Importance of Online Presence
Ability to add sermons, solicit online donations and give explicit directions among the many details churches should feature on their websites states ChurchDev.com
Mooresville, NC -- (SBWire) -- 08/03/2015 --With web usage ever on the rise, no business sector is exempt from the need of a website. Churches in particular are feeling the call more than ever to have not only a web presence, but a fully functional site.
According to a recent study, 46% of all people surveyed said a church's website was important in picking a church to visit. Furthermore, 1/3 stated the internet was the first place they learned about their church. With such impressive numbers, it's no wonder an increasing number of churches today are re-vamping their existing sites or putting up web pages for the first time. With this in mind, Angela Beard, spokesperson for ChurchDev.com has announced a no-hidden fee, all inclusive service structure for all sized churches.
Says Beard, "It's more important than ever to feature your church in the best light with your web page. It's better to have no website at all than to have a website that doesn't feature all the advantages your church has to offer. But, in today's world, many churches feel they can't afford to put their best face forward on a website. That's why we're now offering the best church website builder, bringing a host of features and services for any size ministry's development. We offer state of the art web hosting and our designs are plentiful, allowing easy navigation, online donation features, a sermon system, photo gallery, and so much more."
According to Beard, many churches wonder what information is best to include on their website, so Beard offers the following advice. "Above all else, make sure your location is prominently listed. If a visitor who has surfed to your site can't immediately tell what city the church is in or area of town, it won't matter if the church has the most beautiful website, the most articulate belief statement, or the flashiest photographs. If visitors or newcomers to the area can't find the church, they won't be there on Sunday morning."
Other important features to include on a website for a church include online donations, access to sermons, a staff directory, calendar of events, and unlimited pages to add to as needed. "Whether you need to keep the public aware of what's for dinner Wednesday night or when the church is closing due to inclement weather, a quality designed website is the key to improving communications between your church and congregation. Don't be fooled into thinking your church can't afford the added expense of a website, as our pricing is set up to accommodate all sized budgets."
