The objective is simple:
Create a centralized hub for your current congregation and a homebase for new members who want to be a part of the church.
While you are already operating an app under the Subsplash platform, we want to integrate your website as well so you can operate on one platform with ease.
With one major goal of reaching out into the community to grow your congregation, having your website reflect your message right away and to express to everyone the importance of community, the people and the church, is extremely important.
Restructuring specifics on the homepage and expressing your message as someone lands on the site immediately, is our main goal.
We also want to condense the quantity of pages on the site and tighten up the copy to get the point of who you are and why you would want to be a part of the church more efficiently.
Your New Website
Having re-designed websites in many different industries, we know what is needed and what can be left out. There are several components to your site which would benefit you greatly.
Some we have talked about in our initial meeting. Others we will develop with your new website design platform.
Content for the Site
HOMEPAGE Solid call to action attracting new followers and growing your congregation.
ABOUT We want to showcase your main message here. Your "purpose statement" if you will. Express what you are about, the importance of reaching out in the community to grow and the reason you exist in Brookings.
STEWARDSHIP The spirit of giving is always appreciated. So, for those that wish to give, we want to make it easy.
VIDEO The ability to live stream and your new camera gear will be something we focus on. Making it easy to get to the live worship service or to be able to rewatch an old service is extremely important.
RESOURCES There is a lot more that you do at the church than just spread the message of God. So we want to have a place that all members of the church can go and find what they are looking for quickly. Any and all information can be housed here so people always know where to go without wondering if they are in the correct place.
We know that we may not be able to condense everything down into these select pages from where you were at with your previous site. However, when we meet for our pre-design workshop, we will discuss what you would like to do with any additional information or content that you want showcased on the site. We will do it in a way that meets your churches standards and aligns with your message.
REST EASY, all of our website designs are 'Responsive' Computer, Tablet or Mobile - it will look fantastic!
Processes & Timescales
Step 1 Design interview
We need to get to the bottom of who you are, what you stand for and who you stand beside.
Only then can we begin to create a design that portrays the value you offer in a way that resonates with the people who matter: the people you want to do business with. *WE ALREADY KNOW WHAT YOUR GOALS ARE HERE, TRANSFER YOUR WEBSITE DESIGN OVER TO A NEW PLATFORM. YOU CAN DISREGARD THIS STEP
Step 2 Design presentation
Three new design concepts will be designed. Naturally there will be a common theme but we try to think outside the box and come up with something that isn't obvious. This is often where the best ideas come from.
We'll go through these options and decide which direction to take and any adjustments. *SINCE WE WILL BE JUST MAKING SURE THAT YOUR DATA IS TRANSFERRED AS YOUR CURRENT SITE IS, YOU CAN DISREGARD THIS SECTION
Step 3 Website content
Now we have your design locked-in, we can begin to construct the website. Our copywriter will be in touch with you to help put your ideas down through the "voice" of your new brand. DISREGARD
Any photos will need to be gathered at this stage via Google Drive. We will reach out to you more about this as we get close to start date.
Step 4 Website build
Using everything we've gathered, your website is built. Once it's done, we'll present it to you and go through the details in accordance with the objectives originally set.
Any amends are made at this stage.
Step 5 Launch
The launch process is a carefully considered one. We need to ensure email addresses don't go down, the site doesn't have any downtime, any old links are re-directed to the new pages and several other things.
This is something we've done hundreds of times before.
We operate to a checklist which we've curated over the years and it's not failed us once.
We always launch late on a Friday night to give us the best chance of getting any issues ironed out.
You can sleep easy knowing we'll be on-call over your launch weekend to ensure everything goes according to plan.
In total, it will take us between weeks to get your website live.
