1) BETTER THAN FREE - WE'LL PAY YOU
OurChurch.Com is pleased to announce that we have opened up our partnership program to all OCC-hosted sites with a domain name. As a partner, you'll receive commissions and/or advertising for every site you refer to OurChurch.Com. With just a few referrals, your site can pay for itself and earn money for you. How can you participate in this expanded partnership program?

a) You must have a web hosting package with a domain name - the Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Domain package. If you have a free or plus site, upgrade by clicking the "Order & Renew Premium Options" link on your webmaster page.

b) You must sign up on our partnership site.

c) You may place promotional links and graphics provided by OCC on your site.

For more information please visit our partnership site.

2) MORE VISITORS TO YOUR WEBSITE
Earlier this month OurChurch.Com launched a brand new Website Marketing Services website. If you believe more people could benefit from visiting your website consider ordering our new services: Search Engine Registration, Guaranteed Top Search Ranking, and Monthly Search Ranking Reports. Want to know where you rank in search engines? Want to know who's linking to your site? Check out our free, instant reports available on the marketing site as well.

3) WANT A SUCCESSFUL WEBSITE?
Sure you do. Unfortunately, though, you may be wasting time and web space on things that don't help your site while omitting things you don't realize would make your site much more successful. Do you know what's important and what's not? This month OCC published a tutorial called "12 Steps to A Successful Website." It's designed to give webmasters a step-by-step look at what really matters in website design and marketing. We believe this will be an invaluable resource for you regardless of how much experience you have as webmaster. Read our new website design and marketing tutorial

4) TIME Is RUNNING OUT
Wednesday, January 19th is the last day to participate in OurChurch.Com's advertising auction. If you have a small business or ministry and are determined to make the most of your website in 2005, this is a great opportunity. Prices have been reduced and the minimum purchase has been lowered to just $100. Hurry auction ends 1:00 PM EST Jan 19.

5) NEW ORDER FORM
If you go to your webmaster page and click the "Order & Renew Premium Options" link, you'll notice the order form has changed. We've incorporated the order form from the marketing services site into the webmaster pages, so it includes advertising and marketing services. It also includes tips and a link for more help next to each item in the form. Please let us know if you have questions or experience any problems with it.

Thanks for hosting your website at OurChurch.Com. We look forward to an exciting and innovative 2005. Please post comments and questions concerning this newsletter in our forums.

In His Service,

Website Spotlight
Edgemere Baptist Church

Three years ago Louis Zingarelli was attending a small, growing church and looking for a way he could contribute to the ministry of the church. He had never built a website before, but after finding OurChurch.Com he decided to give it a try. Before long, Louis knew he had found his ministry niche. The Edgemere Baptist Church site, which utilizes the Gold package, is now one of the most advanced sites at OurChurch.Com. It includes all the essentials for a church site like a calendar, photo album, staff page, prayer request page, and announcements. Beyond that, however, it also includes audio and sermon notes for each Sunday's message, plus devotional tools, live newsfeeds, and Bible trivia. If you manage a church website, the Edgemere Baptist site could show you how you can take your church's site to a whole new level.
