Good First Impression = Good Design
Hello OurChurch.Com webmasters,
We hope you're having great summer and finding some time for renewal. July is Web Design Month at OurChurch.Com. Studies show that while great content is what keeps people coming back to a site, the design of the site - the appearance, layout, and navigation - make the biggest initial impression. Our hope is that we can help you improve the design of your website this month.
