We all know that people visit our websites, but what are they looking for? How can we create a welcoming, attractive website that provides the right information in the right places?
And how do we get on the right search engines so people can find us??
Join us at Mission Matters for a workshop that is a practical guide to constructing and maintaining your parish’s appearance on the web. Topics will include building and maintaining a church website, assessing your appearance on Google and other search engines, and leveraging social media to expand your parish reach.
Christianity Today reported that “more than 17 million non-churchgoers visited the website of a local church or place of worship in the past 12 months. Yet many sites fail to easily provide the information these visitors are looking for, according to the just-released results of a nationwide research study by Phoenix-based Grey Matter Research.”
Join Father Allen for a practical workshop that will take the stress out of building websites!
