Your website’s design gives people their first impression of your organization. It contributes to whether visitors will have a pleasant or frustrating experience on your site. You expect your website to help your organization achieve its mission, and to do that it must be designed well.
That doesn’t mean it has to be fancy or expensive or have all the bells and whistles. It just needs to fulfill its purpose.
Our team at OurChurch.Com wants you to succeed because we’re just as passionate about the building of the Kingdom of God as you are. Not only do we help Christian organizations every day by designing great websites for them, but we want to help you overcome your design challenges and answer your design questions whether you use our services or not.
Here are some of the things we’re doing during Web Design Month, to help you achieve your mission online.
1) Crowd-Sourced Blog posts
We want to facilitate discussions about design issues. We don’t know the technical challenges, design decisions, budgeting issues and so forth that you’re dealing with. And we don’t claim to have all the answers either. But our goal is to create places where you can talk about your challenges, and then you can gain input both from our staff and from other Christian Web Trends readers. To make it a little more fun, we’re going to give away a $50 gift card each week to a participant.
Along the same lines, we’re going to experiment with a weekly Twitter chat on the topic of web design. The goal is the same as with the crowd-sourced blog posts, but the Twitter chat provides for real-time conversation and more interaction with other Christian web admins.
3) Web Design Wisdom
In addition to the crowd-sourced posts, we have a slew of other web-design related blog posts on the way including:
- Website spotlights – Analyzing well-designed websites to show how specific design elements are producing results.
- NE1 Advice – Helping the thousands of orgs that use our do-it-yourself NE1 Web Builder improve their sites.
- Web Design Trends – New technology & techniques that lead to a better experience for visitors.
4) Web Design Services
If you know your current website is keeping your organization from reaching its God-given mission, and you want to start looking at options for a new custom-designed website, take a look at the web design services we offer. We would love to speak with you in a free, no-obligation phone consultation to learn more about your organization and recommend a solution that’s the right for you.
We’re excited about our plan for Web Design Month and hope we can help you improve your site’s design and effectiveness.
