Web Design for Small Churches
First impressions are powerful
What kind of first impression are you making?
Today, the majority of people will get their first impression of your church from seeing your website. The tricky part? First impressions are made within milliseconds of your site loading. (It sounds crazy, but it’s true!)
If your website gives those visitors a bad impression, they may never attend a service and give you the chance to change their mind about you!
96.2% of church websites fail a simple first impressions test
In a study of over 1000 websites, the team at Pro Church Tools discovered that just 3.6% of church websites passed a simple five-part evaluation. Unfortunately, it’s most likely that your church website is giving off a bad first impression and driving away potential visitors.
Your church—and the essential message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ—should be represented online in the best possible light. If your website doesn’t pass this simple five question first impressions test, it isn’t helping you reach your community with the Gospel the way it should be.
First Impressions Test
Does the website have a primary focal point?
Is the website responsive (mobile friendly)?
Does the website load reasonably quickly? (under 3 sec)
Are there stock photos of people?
Is new visitor information easily accessible?
