Your website is usually the first point of contact between your ministry and potential donors, visitors, or volunteers. It’s an opportunity to make a good first impression and encourage action—whether that be attending a worship service, making a donation, or signing up to volunteer.

Unfortunately, many ministries don’t invest enough in their websites.

Here are 3 website myths that many ministries believe—and 3 ways that Radiant WebTools debunks them:

1. Website set-up fees are always expensive. Are set up fees preventing your ministry from launching a website? How about a $0.00 set up fee? That’s the deal at Radiant!

2. Websites require the expertise of several professionals (a developer, a hosting service, and a graphic designer) for set up and maintenance. The Radiant WebTools package is an all-inclusive service that includes hosting, access to a content management system, and many gorgeous templates. It’s simple to use—even for those with no previous website experience.

3. Mobile websites and apps are a waste of time and money. Study after study shows that mobile usage is increasing in Canada. If users cannot access your website on their mobile device, they will likely abandon it right away, passing up an opportunity to connect with your ministry. Included with Radiant WebTools, you can create your own mobile app, and everything you create on your website is re-sized properly for users that access your website on a mobile device.
