I stumbled across this infographic the other day at Inc.com. The article and infographic are geared toward small businesses, but it occured to me that these are the exact same issues facing small churches. By trying to manage a small website on your own, your already-overworked staff or volunteers can run into the following headaches:

  1. Poor Design
  2. No Metrics
  3. Poor SEO
  4. No Mobile Optimization

And more. Check out the infographic below to see all the challenges facing small churches (and businesses).

    I totally agree – great points. We have heard many times, when we contact a church to see if they are in need of our services, that they have someone in the congregation who is taking care of creating/maintaining the website. And we get, that a church may be trying to be good stewards of their money and save where they can.

    The problem is, in the long run, they can run into problems. If it’s a volunteer or already busy staff member, what’s going to be neglected? Many times it’s the website. The priority is (and should be) people.

    So, it’s an excellent idea to outsource the creation/care of the website to those who are experienced and it’s their job to do it. Then you can know it will be taken care of.
