By: Luke Marzano
January 15th, 2019

Let me ask you a question… What’s the craziest thing you’ve done to get someone’s attention? Listen, I think we all could tell some funny stories in response to that questions. We’ve probably all done some absurd things. I know I have! Like when I wore an exact replica of the Dumb and Dumber tuxedo to my senior prom...

By: Luke Marzano
January 1st, 2019

Fact… Graphic design is important for your website! Your graphics could make or break the overall look and feel of your site. Good graphics will draw people in and enhance the quality of your website. Bad graphics? They’ll just confuse, distract, and leave your website looking less-than-professional. Don’t believe me? Let me prove it to you!

Four Steps to Refresh Your Church Website This New Year

By: Luke Marzano
December 27th, 2018

Christmas seems to come and go faster and faster every year, and while this is often bittersweet, one good thing about it is we get to think about what comes next: the New Year! Yes, after all the Christmas festivities are over, we turn our attention to a new start. We focus on refreshing ourselves and our lives by planning our resolutions for the coming year. My resolution for last year? Well…. Let’s just say I didn’t make it long into 2018 without a few cinnamon rolls chasing me down (And let the record show, I have no regrets!) Maybe your resolution this past new year was about saving money, losing weight, getting organized, taking a trip, or chasing a dream. Hopefully you faired a little better than me in reaching your goals! But no matter what you chose or how it played out, the point of resolutions is usually the same… To make the upcoming year better than the last. Believe it or not, one of the best things you can do for your church is make a resolution to do the same for your website. With the changing of the year comes the changing of so many things at your church. The new year brings so much new information to share! So let’s make the upcoming year better than the last when it comes to your church site!

All About Website Migration

By: Luke Marzano
November 20th, 2018

We made a major transition in my family this year… No, I’m not talking about Lebron’s infamous move to Los Angeles (though I’m still dealing with the emotional impact of that one!). I’m talking about our transition from being a family of three to a family of four! We welcomed our second son this year. Of course he’s been the best addition to our little tribe, but all you parents out there know that this transition doesn’t always come easy. Dealing with a child #1 who’s used to undivided child #1 attention (And isn’t necessarily ready to share the spotlight!) Dealing with a child #2 who’s COMPLETELY different than child #1 (So going through it once doesn’t really help that much, does it?) Yeah. It’s a transition that takes some getting used to!   As parents, you go from zone defense to a man-to-man. Suddenly, you can’t pass off the baby and take a nap. Why? Because there’s another kid who needs you, too! (If you’re a parent of five, you’re laughing at me right now. But remember, there was day when you actually took naps!) Several months in, I think we’ve finally gotten the hang of this two-kid family thing. And here’s how we made it through the transition… We had help.

Fall Overhaul: Updating Your Website for the Season

By: Luke Marzano
October 18th, 2018

You guys, it’s official… Fall is here! School is in full swing. A chill is entering the air. Scarves and beanies are making their triumphant return to wardrobes around the country. Football is here. And everything (and I mean everything) is suddenly flavored with pumpkin! One of my favorite sights in the world is the leaves changing colors at the start of every fall. There’s a tree in a nearby park that I marvel at every year... It’s almost as if the entire world goes through a little renovation each fall! With everything around you changing this season, you don’t want to forget to do the same for your church website! You’ve heard of spring cleaning, right? Well, let me introduce you to the fall overhaul! Let the changing of seasons be a signal to you to make some changes on your church website!

How to Create an Internal Request Form

By: Luke Marzano
October 2nd, 2018

Our family decided to do a little staycation this summer. With two little guys, it just felt easier to take a break here at home than to load up everything that’s required to take two young kids on vacation somewhere. (You feel me, parents?) During our time off together as a family, here’s what I learned. There are two keys to any good vacation or staycation… Communication Planning

Six Things to Include About Children's Ministry on Your Church Website

By: Luke Marzano
September 18th, 2018

In case you missed it, my family grew by one member this year. We welcomed our newest little guy into the Marzano crew. Now that I’m a father of two, it changes the way I see the world (Those of you who have kids know this to be true)…. It changes the choices I make. The way I sleep (and don’t sleep). How I do my grocery shopping. And it changes the way I see church. When I think about when to attend, where to plug in, and whether or not to serve, I don’t start by thinking about what’s best for me. Like most parents, my first concern is what’s best for my family. That’s why it’s so important for your church to include information about children’s ministry on your website.

Five Signs That It's Time to Give Your Church Website a Makeover

By: Luke Marzano
August 14th, 2018

We interrupt this regularly scheduled blog to bring you live coverage of me, Luke, a lifelong Cleveland sports fan, reacting to the recent news that hometown hero and all-around basketball stud, Lebron James, is leaving for Los Angeles. Now, I’ve been Lebron fan for a long time. Sure, he left us in Cleveland once before…But he came back! And when he did, we redesigned our entire team around him! So needless to say, the struggle is real for us Cleveland fans this year. Because now we’re dealing with a complete and total team redesign. What worked before, won’t work now. We need something new. Now maybe you’re reading this and thinking, “Who cares, Luke? What does losing Lebron have to do with our church website?”
