Why Your Website Needs a Plan Your Visit Option

-

Does your church website offer a plan your visit option, one of the most powerful outreach tools for new visitors right now?

In a recent interview, Kenny Jahng sits down with Tyler Smith, founder of textinchurch.com to talk about the “Plan Your Visit” resource and the positive impact it can have on a first-time visitor or guest.

3 Ways A Plan Your Visit Video Impacts UX

Tyler shares 3 ways a first time guest’s experience with the church changes if they encounter a Plan Your Visit page on the website first:

  1. It changes their perception of the church.
  2. It changes the first interactions of the visit.
  3. It changes the guest’s mindset expectations of the church.

Listen in on Kenny & Tyler’s conversation in today’s interview episode.

“NEW HERE” WEBSITE PAGE

Also, Tyler suggests churches have a New Here page on their website. This should be the motherlode of everything a visitor needs:

  • Service time, end time and location
  • Ministry offerings (children’s programs, etc.)
  • Welcome, Plan Your Visit and Thank You videos

Don’t forget the contact capturing section. If an individual, couple or family are interested in your church, you owe them an easy way to stay in communication.
