We Build Church Websites
We start every church website project by asking 'What is your church website not doing to grow your church?'
We believe a church website should tell people who you are and share the benefit of why a new family should visit you. The site should always focus on unchurched people first because they are looking for a church or an answer.
Engaging a church growth strategist to build your church website offers tremendous value. The main purpose of your website is to reach unchurched people and ultimately get them in a seat or at an event. We consider your website's audience to fall into three rings.
Our philosophy in building a church website goes much deeper than good design. If unchurched people looking for a church or for help with a felt need can't find your website, you have a problem!
SEO is a major focus of the process we undertake. Content is also a significant factor as your website needs to effectively inform your users as well as Google about what you offer.
When solid SEO is infused with great design, the product is a website that truly shares what your church is about, and people will want to visit your church in-person as a result.
Great Design + Solid SEO (Brings More Website Traffic)
Shepherd of the Desert
In addition, Shepherd of the Desert has many ministries that serve people searching for help with Felt Needs. This aspect of their church was not prominently displayed on their old website, which presented a clear opportunity for improvement.
Grace Pointe Church
To accomplish this, their new website first funnels the user to the appropriate place depending on the campus that is relevant to them and whether or not they currently attend the church. Once there, the content is entirely tailored to their needs - whether they are a first-time visitor or someone who currently attends the church.
This partnership added three developers to their team and also brought our expertise in On-Page SEO, Felt Needs Content, and Local SEO to the project. The finished product of their new church website provided the perfect landing page to use with an interruptive Facebook ad campaign. They now look forward to growing their web traffic through event specific digital advertising campaigns and continued SEO efforts.
This website provides the platform for his ministry and utilizes our Sermon Video Library to provide rich landing page content for a Google Grant Campaign. In combination, these two products have a powerful benefit of bringing targeted traffic from the most relevant keywords to his website.
Their new website loads quickly, is secure, and is well optimized for search engine crawlability. Further, it is built using a theme that makes it easy for their non-technical Communications person to handle routine content additions.
Upon launching the website, Messiah Lutheran elected to purchase our Wordpress Website Maintenance subscription. They have peace of mind as we continue to monitor, run back ups, and perform updates that are critical to the overall security of the site. They also have the foundation for continuous improvement to their web traffic and plan to continue chipping away at SEO and adding content to accommodate new Felt Needs web traffic.
Strawbridge United Methodist Church
We also took care to include all of the most important local metadata on their homepage so that Google correctly sees identifies the physical location of the church in local searches.
Once the website was launched, Strawbridge took advantage of our monthly Wordpress Website Maintenance subscription and also our Google Analytics & Search Console subscription. With this combination of ongoing services, we continue to monitor, run back ups, perform updates, and make meaningful suggestions for improvement of the site based on visitor behavior data from Google Analytics and Google Search Console.
Their new Worpress powered site is far easier to use for those without a developer level skillset, is constructed upon a foundation of strong On-Page SEO, and provides superior branding and navigation.
Your Website Is Waiting
The goal is to gain and engage more first-time visitor traffic to your website because there is a connection between website traffic and church attendance.
