Clayton Community Church is a quickly growing church in the East Bay Area, however their website was outdated and turning away visitors and new members. They reached out to me to help them revitalize their brand and online presence to attract new visitors.
Since the church is located in NorCal, we used Skype to hold our strategy meetings where I guided their leadership team through questions to define their mission, branding and strategy to reach their community. From there, we nailed down a strategic plan to showcase their various ministries in an attractive, easy-to-understand way.
Professional Writing & Photography
Perfecting the visuals and written content was incredibly important for this church. The leadership staff wanted their writing to match their newly created brand, so I crafted their content and also worked with images from a professional photographer to ensure everything fit together perfectly.
What I delivered to them was a website that included centers for their different ministries, a sermon archive, event calendar, and online giving portal. We’ve also recently gotten started on launching a podcast of their weekly sermons!
Site Launch & Results
We launched the site on November 21st, 2016 and the site immediately started to help their church grow. Website traffic is up and it’s converting to more people visiting their congregation on a regular basis. The website continues to grow along with the church, giving them a powerful platform to reach and communicate with their community.
It is with great pleasure that I’d recommend Keene Web Designs. From the start Karyn was very instrumental in helping our church clarify our mission, branding and strategy for reaching our community. Her insights were always spot on, her consistent care and understanding for our church was incredible and the finished product was more than we could have hoped for. She was prompt in her attention to detail and our needs. She accomplished everything we needed (and more!) in a timely manner. Shawn Robinson
You don’t need IT skills nor a background in communication to build or upgrade to a vibrant website with Keene Web Designs. Karyn walked our team through each stage and made the entire process easy to understand. She graciously answered our questions, listened to our ideas and then incorporated them seamlessly into the website. She helped us to identify our target audience, how we wanted our message to be conveyed both directly and subtly, and created an outstanding user experience and interactive interface. She worked with our limited abilities and timelines to build a fantastic website. And she did this remotely thus removing the limitation of having to select from a local business. The proof is in the pudding: we have a significant uptick in our website traffic and new people physically visiting our congregation as a result! Ron Musch
