VAUMC Communications Training Opportunities
Register for a free webinar on February 28
The VAUMC Board of Communications will be offering two excellent training sessions for small churches with limited resources led by our friends at United Methodist Communications (UMCOM). Session one on February 26 focused on leveraging email, text, and social media to communicate with your congregation and the community. Session two on February 28 will show you how UMCOM can help build and host a new website for your church or evaluate your current site, and share best practices for websites.
Wednesday, February 28, 1:00-2:00 pm, Zoom
Website Best Practices: Why it Matters for Outreach (& your sanity)
Zoom Webinar Registration: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_2QS7AkibQ46h6C0Dnfpzqw
This session will cover best practices for many aspects of your website including using photos for marketing, rules of design, simple auditing of your own website, and examples of good website design. It will also provide pricing and links to have UMCOM build or rebuild your church website. It is our hope that this session will help you learn to view your website as an online visitor and learn how to use it as a marketing tool for your church.
