Move Up a Grade During Back to School Month

Hi OCC News Subscriber,

For many people September marks the beginning of the new school year and a time to focus on school issues. That is the case here at OurChurch.Com where September is officially... Back to School Month.

This month we’ll be doing all we can to help schools sort through the website issues they face and provide examples of schools that are doing their website well. Plus we’ve got the design, hosting, and marketing services that will help your school communicate better and connect with prospective new students. We’ll even be leading a workshop and hosting an exhibit table at a conference for Christian school administrators and teachers.

Take a moment to check out all the things related to schools going on this month at OurChurch.Com.

In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck, CEO
OurChurch.Com

1) Get a Custom Website for Your School
Every school is unique and therefore every Christian school website should be custom designed to reflect the unique character and needs of the school. Here are 4 benefits to having OCC develop a custom website for your school:

  1. Amazing Design. Your website is the first impression many prospective students and parents will get of your school. Make it a great one! OCO's custom websites are design to your specs to include school colors, logos, and photos of teachers and students.
  2. Easily Updated by Multiple Administrators. With a custom site, your schools teachers and administrators can all update their own pages quickly and easily without any HTML skills necessary. Having up-to-date information on your site is the most important factor in getting teachers, parents, and students to use the website regularly.
  3. Saves Time. As people come to see your new website is always up to date with the latest info on news, events, activities, and even homework assignments, students and parents will check the site rather than calling the school for info. Forms and permission slips can be made available on the site. You can even enable parents to pay for tuition and lunches online, saving everyone time.
  4. Useful Features. Imagine the benefits to your staff, students, and teachers when you have a website that includes a calendar, eNewsletter, photo gallery, event registration for trips, staff directory, and private password-protected pages each parent can login to view info about their student posted by the teacher.
All of this is brought you by a staff that understands the needs of schools, teachers, parents and students. That's because our staff includes a former teacher, a school board member, several parents of school-age children, and an experienced school website design team. Learn more about our custom-designed school websites.

2) Online Marketing for Schools
Is your school missing out on thousands of dollars of tuition because of unfilled class space? Many parents looking for a private school start their search in online search engines. OurChurch.Com can help you fill that class space for pennies on the dollar by getting your school to the top of the search rankings in Google, Yahoo, MSN, and more. Read about our marketing services or request a free phone consultation today.

3) Discuss School Website Issues
If you're the administrator of a school or class website, here's an opportunity to discuss challenges and tips for making your website better. We'll be posting some examples of good school websites designed or hosted by OurChurch.Com. Stop by to post your comments, tips, and questions.

4) OCC Blog Goes Back to School
Want to make the most of your school website? Want to increase the percentage of parents and students who get their information from the site? Want your website to bring in more prospective students? This month we’re talking about school website issues in our Christian Web Trends Blog. Check it out and post your 2 cents in the comments.

5) Last Chance for Big Discounts
As announced last month, we'll be scaling back some big discounts on hosting services as well as changing the pricing on some marketing, advertising, and bundle services on September 30. We wanted to give you plenty of notice so you can take advantage of the current pricing.

6) OCC Hits a Christian School Conference
OurChurch.Com has been given the unique opportunity to participate in the 2008 Convocation of FL-GA District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (quite a mouthful) on September 24-25 in Daytona Beach, FL. OCC CEO, Paul Steinbrueck will be leading a workshop to help churches and schools improve their websites to make the most of the modern Internet.

Additionally, we'll have an exhibitors both to talk with teachers, pastors, and volunteers, and we'll be blogging live from the convocation so you can get a taste of what we experience.
