Church Marketing Showdown: PPC vs. SEO

Church Marketing Showdown - Pay Per Click vs Search Engine OptimizationA week ago I wrote a bit about the value of a pay-per-click (PPC) search marketing campaign as a part of your online church marketing. Almost every time I talk about pay-per-click and search engine optimization, I get the one of two questions, “Which is better?” or “Which should our church do?” Read More

What is Local SEO and Why It’s Important to Church Marketing?

 

We’ve looked at what SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is, setting up your website to make it readable by the search engines and so that it tells the search engines what your website is about by targeting specific keywords. So, what is local SEO? Local SEO is optimization of your website both targeting keywords with local modifiers (ie: churches in Trinity, FL) and with the intent of telling the search engines where your church/business/organization is.

Link Building for Church Marketing

Link Building for Churches


(Updated 4/20/2011)

If optimizing a website is like giving your car a tune up, link building is like putting in a bigger engine. Simply put, there are going to be keywords that are out of your reach if all you do is on-page optimization, especially if your church is in a large city or having church ministries targeting competitive keywords, like “unplanned pregnancy”, Link building is needed to bring those keywords into your grasp.

Links are like votes for your website. The more votes your website gets, the more important the search engines think your site is. That causes then to move you up in the search results for the keywords you are targeting and can get you ranking well for keywords you can’t currently rank well for. So, what is link building and how do you do it? Read on my friend. Read More

Church Press Release Killed by Christianese

Chris Walker at EvangelismCoach.org posted a good article about a church that issued a press release that was practically useless because it included so much flowery language and Christian lingo (aka Christianese).

Local newspapers will often run church press releases (or exerpts from them) in their religion section (both print and online), so it’s great to see a church using a press release to communicate with people in their community, but you’ve got to write them in a way that unchurched people can understand.  Read the critique: Flowery Church “Insider” Language confuses Press Release.

Stolen church equipment = outreach opportunity?

Church Marketing Sucks posted an interesting story about Kinetic Church in Charlotte, NC.  Kinetic church holds its Sunday service in a movie theater and so they keep all their gear in a trailer.  About a month ago theives stole the trailer.  In response, Kinetic Church launched an outreach effort with donated billboard space and a coordinated online outreach effort.  They even put this video on YouTube reaching out to the person or people who stole the trailer offering them forgiveness and asking for the opportunity to take them out to dinner.
