We love getting creative to help ministries come up with a unique looking website. A few of our common custom design requests are background images, textures and custom page layouts. Basically, if you can dream it up, we’ll do our best to make it happen.
Here’s a down-and-dirty checklist for you and your team to use when setting out to build a new website:
•Write down how your website serves the mission of the ministry.
•List out the type of users who will come to the site and what you want them to do.
•Create a list of 10 church websites that you like, and name what you like about each.
•Make sure the font is big enough.
•Make sure there is a good contrast between the background color and the text color.
•Decide how images will be used in a post.
•Decide who will be allowed to write posts.
•Decide how often you’ll post. (And whatever frequency you decide, make sure you stick to the schedule: an old blog post is worse than no blog post).
•Get a logo made. (I would advise investing in a good one you paid for rather than a free OK one.)
•Choose colors that are OK to use with your brand.
•Choose styles you’ll use for headlines, subheads, body text, pullquotes, blockquotes, and other text.
•Pick out 20 photos and make a mood board to show the vibe your site will have. (This will be helpful to show volunteers who are working on the project with you know what you’re looking for.)
•Write out how you explain your ministry—do it in a page, a paragraph, a sentence, and a couple words. (It will be helpful when you have more people involved, and when you need to pitch this idea to get people on board.)
