Rebranding 101: How to Build Your Church's Brand Online

By: Luke Marzano
July 10th, 2018

Parents know that there’s nothing worse than putting together toys for your kids. It may be the absolute worst thing about every single holiday: birthdays, Christmas, Easter, etc. Somehow there’s always something that needs to be assembled for your kid! It seems like it always comes with a million pieces and just a few confusing instructions. What’s worse? When you finally put it together, it seems like it breaks the first time your kid puts it to use! That’s why I made a decision this past Christmas to only buy something that I knew I could trust. I picked a brand that I knew wouldn’t let me down.

[Free Resource] The Church Planter's Web Guide

By: Samantha Decker
June 28th, 2018

When you have a question, where's the first place you look for an answer? When you're looking to find something in your community, where do you start? When you want information, where do you look? If you're answer to any and all of these questions isn’t the Internet, then we don’t know who you are. Seriously, think about it! Can you remember a time before the Internet made it quick and easy to find the things you’re looking for? Do you even know someone who owns a phone book anymore? If you aren’t asking Google or Siri, you just aren’t finding it these days. That’s why having a website is essential for a startup church (or really any church for that matter). The good news is if you’ve made it this far then you probably already knew that. Congratulations- you’ve already won half the battle! And creating a website with Clover makes winning that half of the battle simple and easy. But if having a website is only half the battle for you as a church plant, what’s the other half? Reaching your audience!

It's that time again -- to announce a new feature on Clover Sites!  The media statistics helps you know which of your media items are played most often. This can help you optimize what you share with your congregation and your community. As you learn which topics are popular, you can address those issues more often.  Access the statistics panel by clicking straight to it from your Dashboard. This is already live on your site (if you're still on Clover Classic,  check out how you can Transition FOR FREE to CS3.

How to Make Impressive Graphic Designs with Text for Your Church

By: Joanna Gray
June 7th, 2018

We've all done it. We've had to make a sermon slide, or a bulletin insert. We've all seen some really cool designs online, thought, “Oh, I could totally do that.” AND THEN, we try to copy it but for some reason it just doesn’t look as good? Whether you're trying to design text images that will get  likes and shares on social media, or you're using graphics and text to come up with an eye-popping presentation, knowing how to make your text stand out is a crucial component. When it comes to graphic design, however, making cool text is often harder than it looks. That is, if you have no idea what you're doing.

Five Ways to Engage Visitors During the Offering Time at Your Church

By: Samantha Decker
June 5th, 2018

Let me set the scene for you… It’s Sunday morning. It’s that part of your church service where you take up the offering. It’s that moment when someone stands in front of your congregation and hopefully inspires them to open their hearts and give to your church. And let’s say the person with that role today is you. You’re ready and prepared. You know exactly what you’re going to say. You’re prepared to connect generosity to both the vision of your church and the impact it’ll make on human beings. And then…. YOUR EYES LAND ON A COUPLE OF VISITORS SITTING RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU ON THE FIRST ROW. Suddenly, you’re nervous. And just like that, what you hoped would be a powerful moment in your service now feels awkward.
