Some church websites are brilliant, but many have features that lessen their impact on the curious and their use for the committed. Here are 18 questionable features listed for you to test your website against.
A selection from the list:
- Non-responsive and non-secure technology
- Unclear navigation
- Hidden contact details
- Out-of-date information
- Unanswered questions
- Suspect or coded words
- Typos or poor grammar
- Lengthy paragraphs
- Stock photos
- Delayed response
Each of the 18 is explained, so see which ones might just apply to your site. Better, ask a visitor to the site to mark you on each of the features listed.
Your church website is your shop window. It’s not easy to write and design it for everyone but it’s worth making an effort to get it as good as it can be.
