Online Search Leads the Way

Greetings,

According to a new study from The Barna Group online search is "easily the most common online activity." More than eight out of 10 computer users (84%) searched in the last week. That's why we at OurChurch.Com are committed to being the leading Christian search marketing company on the planet. And it's why we've declared May to be Marketing Month.

Has your website changed at all in the last 6 months?

You can have a complete report of all your search listings emailed to you in seconds.

Since you've already taking advantage of a free listing in our search directory, you probably already understand the importance of being listed in major search engines like Google and Yahoo as well as Christian search directories. During May you can get our search registration and Christian Search Registration services free. Only 3 days remain, so see our marketing services site for more details.

3) GET LISTED IN UP TO 2,000 DIRECTORIES!

4) CHECK OUT CHURCH MARKETING ONLINE
Last month we launch the Church Marketing Online website. Since then several churches have taken strides to reach more people in their communities through our new Top Church Search Rankings service. And several thought-provoking articles have been published including "Is Marketing Evil?" How do Search Engines Work? And What is SEO? If you're the web administrator of a church website, we think you'll find the articles extremely useful.

5) THE TOP 10 SEARCH MARKETING MISTAKES
Kurt, our director of search marketing, has been blogging all month about search engine marketing issues. If you care about getting visitors to your website through search engines, you'll want to read his latest article, The Top 10 Search Marketing Mistakes.
