February 13, 2018, Rome, N.Y.—Churches, dioceses and ministries who struggle to design and keep their websites up to date can now find relief by engaging a new service from Cathedral Corporation. The new Cathedral Websites Service can supplement or replace website development at religious institutions to improve the website look, communications quality and performance.
“An effective, up-to-date website can be a powerful contributor to a church’s well-being,” said Marianne Gaige, Chairman and CEO, Cathedral Corporation. “With our website service churches get a welcoming, easy-to-navigate site and an automated newsletter to help attract and retain members and encourage regular tithing.”
The new Cathedral Website Service provides creative design, technical setup, support and training—all coordinated by an experienced Cathedral Corporation project leader. Designs are customized for the customer; they provide choices for the color scheme, menu, layout and look and feel. Sites are built to permit churches to easily make edits and changes moving forward or churches can choose to have Cathedral serve as the webmaster and manage the content to keep the site current.
The sites are designed to support modern technology. Many studies show that more than half of website traffic comes from mobile devices, so Cathedral builds sites with responsive design to automatically adjust their layouts for optimal viewing on smartphones and tablets as well as PCs. In addition, a mobile app can be seamlessly integrated with the website for an additional fee.
To ensure that important news is communicated to members, the site includes an automated email newsletter. This means that news and event announcements that have been added to the site are collected and delivered to subscribers automatically on a schedule of the church’s choosing. Other tools that improve communication include a news manager that assigns publishing and expiration dates, Google Calendar integration, social media modules, online video and much more.
The new Cathedral Website Service is available immediately, affordably priced and supported by the promise of delivering excellent customer service. For more information, visit www.cathedralstewardship.com.
