Web Design Month – Achieve Your Mission Online!

web design monthOurChurch.Com’s mission is to help you achieve your mission online. Having a well-designed website is absolutely essential to achieving your mission online. That’s because a) your website is likely the hub of your communications, and b) the design of your website affects so many aspects of your site.

The design of your website encompasses:

  • The way your site looks
  • How easy (or difficult) it is for visitors to find their way around
  • Functionality such as login, forms, calendar, blog, multimedia
  • The administrative interface for staff
  • The “behind the scenes” tags necessary to optimize it for search engines

As you can see, web design is about much, much more than having a pretty site. There’s a lot riding on it!

So, we’re devoting an entire month to helping you evaluate and improve the design of your website.

1) Blogging About Design Issues

As I mentioned earlier, our mission is to help you achieve your mission online. That’s regardless of whether you use any of our services or not. We’ll be blogging about design issues that may be giving people a bad impression of your organization, issues that could be frustrating your visitors and help you think through and prioritize steps that will bring your website more in alignment with your mission.

2) Website Reviews

If you’d like to take the general insight we offer here on Christian Web Trends and have it applied specifically to your website, we offer a comprehensive website review. The review includes evaluation of your site in 6 key areas:

  1. Appearance and layoutwebsite review
  2. Navigation and usability
  3. Purpose and goals
  4. Content
  5. Availability in search engines
  6. Interactivity and social media

We provide you with a written evaluation very similar to the website reviews we published here two years ago and include recommended action steps. Then we schedule a half hour phone call to go over the evaluation with you and answer any questions you might have. The cost of this comprehensive review is just $199. If you’re interested, please complete the consultation request form to discuss the service further.

If you’re at the point where you know you need a new website in order to accomplish your mission online, we would love to help you with that. Remember, our mission is not just to build websites but to help you achieve your God-given mission online. So we listen to understand who you are and what your mission is. Then we can custom design a site for you that has a look that conveys who you are as an organization and the specific functionality you need to accomplish your goals. See our web design portfolio for examples of the organizations we serve and then complete the consultation request form so we can set up a time to talk.

4) Everything But the Kitchen Sink

Lastly, one of the ways we help you achieve your mission online is by being available to help you with whatever you need – everything but the kitchen sink. If you need someone to fix up your current site, we can help with that. If you need custom programming or database integration, we can help with that. Domain registration, web hosting, SEO – you name it, we can do it all for you so that you have just one company to call anytime you want to do anything with your site.

Whew! That’s a lot going on this month. No matter how big your organization is and no matter what state your website is in now, we’ve got something that will help you take the next step towards achieving your mission online.
