- What is this?
- Who is it for?
- What do I get?
- Your bulletin shows the next 3 events that apply to the whole church and then has a link or QR code to the hub (that special page on your website)
- Your signage takes people to the hub.
- Your newsletter shows the next 3 events and again, a link to hub page.
- Your announcements on Sunday focus on telling them about the next 3 - 5 events but don’t give all the details, for details they have to go to the hub.
- Have people text the word hub to your Text-to-Church (church office) number.
- Members who use the App to give, manage their groups, events, and volunteer schedule click the hub link to see everything else.
This hub page is not an events page. Because at times what you want them to do is not register for an event.
For example, it could be a notice about an upcoming service change. It could be a place for people to ask for prayer requests.
Your hub page lives on your website but it’s not your home page. Reminder, the home page is for the first time visitor. The hub is for next steps.
You can use Text-to-Church and the Member App for those who prefer each to be redirected to the same information or registration page.
It will no longer be complex to manage your church communication. You can give people the option to use their browser (QR code), text a keyword, or an app.
They will choose based on their preferences and engagement level in your church. But everything is managed in one place.
Rather than trying to convince people to use one particular channel, let them use what they already know or prefer. But, keep your life as a church communicator sane by housing the message in one place.
That makes sure that by whatever path, everyone is seeing and hearing the same thing.
So let’s remove the noise, shall we? The world is noisy enough.
