5 Tips to Make Your Page a Winner
Similar churches can experience substantially different results with online giving. The difference is in execution and promotion. By following these tips, you’ll ensure that your church can successfully capture one-time and recurring gifts from your website.
Location. Location. Location.
Prominently feature a link from your church’s home page to your online giving page. Don’t make members work to find it. Place the link so it will be visible without scrolling. Navigation from your home page to your giving page should take one click.
Offer multiple links to your giving page.
Provide links to your giving page from several locations throughout your website.
Add direct appeals for financial support on your giving page and throughout your website. Tell your members how their gifts will be used and the good they will do, and they’ll often be moved to give more.
Guide members to your site.
Promote your website and giving page at every opportunity. Your church web address and online giving page address should appear in all communications — newsletters, bulletin messages, social media and more. Within all financial appeals, remind members and guests they can give online.
Offer multiple payment methods.
Accommodate the giving preferences of your members by accepting other electronic contributions, such as mobile, text or kiosk.
