Your church is interested in Christian Science Websites. After a lengthy review of many, it’s hard to tell just what you want yours to do. The Church would like to advertise service times, their address and contact information. Information about the reading room. But then what? Winning websites do a better job of communicating the Christian Science message. Christian Science Websites should interact with the public to their advantage-not detriment and that’s an art.
Christian Science Websites
So much has changed in Christian Science Websites in only a few years. Churches are relying less on focusing on the Mother Church due to changing technology and social media. An emphasis exists to tell the public what their branch church is and what it stands for including individualized programs for kids and older adults. Branch churches can tout, you don’t have to be a member to be welcome here. It takes effort to define who you are and who you want to be. Our company understands this. And because we come from a Christian Science background, we understand how to tailor a site to run an effective information campaign.
Your church needs to give itself the best chance to correctly identify itself.
An IT professional who knows how to react quickly and positively using electronic communication is essential. When the public has an idea about what Christian Science is, they may not know where to look for more information. If you have a local internet presence, a search engine can direct them straight to your church. If your tools are confusing or don’t provide what you want the public to see, you are allowing someone else to identify you and/or define your church. Your church needs to give itself the best chance to correctly identify itself. It’s sad to say, but the average first grader has more knowledge of the Internet than many Church boards do. You CAN hire a professional to manage your message at an affordable cost.
So, don’t fall for a boilermaker website sales pitch and think that’s the answer to your communication issues. Hire someone who knows what they are doing and stay out of their way. It’s the best money you will ever raise.
