Church Web Design - 3 Things You Need to Know Before You Hire a Web Designer

Do you want a powerful, cutting edge web site that matches your ministry? Is having to deal with programming and HTML, holding your ministry back from reaching the world with the message The Lord has called you to deliver?
The challenge is finding the right design company to take your vision for your website and turning it into the soul saving and world reaching web site it was called to be. There are many quality designer's that build great church web site's. However, not all design company's were created equal.
While many of these design companies working in the christian community do great design work. I see most of them fall short in three critical categories. Here are three area your web designer must be capable of accomplishing to get the highest impact, exposure, and rankings for your web site.
Social Media
This is one area where most church web design companies are not providing to their customer's. It's no secret that the top website's on the internet are all on the social media networks. This is one of the most critical assets a company or a church can have. Social media is the underground secret all savvy companies and ministries are using to drive huge amounts of traffic back to their web sites and make's it possible for life long relationship building.
Blog integration
Traditional static websites have little chance for ranking high in the search engines for search terms people are actually typing into Google. The reason why is the lack of fresh quality content. The best way to get constant flow of targeted traffic is by integrating a blog into your website. This is not as difficult as a lot of people make it out to be.
Your church creates fresh, quality, life empowering content each week. Simply by taking the notes from this week's message on Sunday and posting it on your blog has the power to dramatically increase your web site ranking for many search terms and getting powerful exposure to your website, ministry, and message.
CMS
CMS or content management systems are designed so that anyone can easily manage their website without having to know how programming and HTML work. With that said not all CMS systems are created equal, so it is vital that the web site designer your church hire's has a rock solid CMS system in place. The last thing you want to have to deal with is fixing bugs or other glitches from a sub par CMS system. Make sure your designer has a reliable customer support staff in place that can provide some initial training and on going support for your web site.
Finding the right design company to build your ministry's website can be a costly and timely endeavor. My strongest recommendation is to find a company that is on the cutting edge of web design, social media, and online marketing.
