Over the last few years, we’ve met countless churches who loved Sharefaith’s website & hosting product, but were stuck in an expensive website contract or hosting agreement with another provider that they’re no longer pleased with. Many of these churches also did not have the funds, time, or staff to allocate to migrating or moving their old website to a new Sharefaith one. That is now in the past! As usual, Sharefaith goes above and beyond to create the best customer service and give you the best church resources at the lowest price possible! (more…)
Websites have quickly become a powerful and necessary tool for the church. Every church wants the best church website, as these days more people are finding churches through searching online, than searching through the phone book. However, even if you come up #1 in searches all the time, that won’t do you much good if your website looks out-of-date or just plain ugly. You need to make a good first impression for any potential visitors and your church website will serve as your digital ambassador to the world. The internet has grown leaps and bounds since its inception and continues to evolve at a rapid pace. Keeping up with those changes and maintaining a look with the latest and greatest features can be exceptionally difficult. This is where church website templates come in. Oftentimes, we hear the word “template” and think that this means low quality cookie cutter stuff. In actuality, many of the best church website templates are out there that make even professional web designers have to do a triple-take to see if what they are looking at is truly a template or custom design work.
Programming websites is difficult. At Sharefaith, we provide everything you need to have a website without doing any programming yourself, but there are a number of obstacles that we have to deal with in providing an intuitive interface. Even with decent “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG) editing tools in place, you are at the mercy of the instances in which the authors of those tools decide that, “What You See is a close proximity, but may not be exactly What You Get.” All of the WYSIWYG content editors that we have seen (including the one we use – up until now) miss one simple fact: People who don’t want to learn a bunch of new computer skills are most comfortable if their content editor acts exactly like Microsoft Word.

At the beginning of a New Year, you probably have some goals for your church — numerical growth, spiritual maturity, greater understanding and application of the Bible, increased giving, deeper relationships, more prayer, strong families, etc. We encourage you to take on a New Year goal that will assist you in achieving your other goals — a new church website.
1. Content Overload. There is nothing more unappealing then a cluttered website. Don’t bombard visitors with every conceivable photo, article, or information piece you can find. Keep articles organized in categories and subcategories. Choose names for the categories accordingly.
2. Forcing Content Into Small Spaces. Rotating banners are great ways to announce dates or events. That does not mean you have to push all the information about the event in that small banner. Rather, simply include the event title and date with a nice design or picture that promotes it. Then link your banner to a page that provides all the information about the event. (more…)
