Best Practices | Clover Sites 3


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.

It actually does take a village, you guys! We needed family, friends, church members, coworkers—pretty much anyone who would show up, support us, cook for us, take care of our kids, let us get some sleep, and generally make the transition smoother.

The truth is, for any transition in life, a little help can go a long way!

That’s why I’m so excited to share something that’s going to help your church through a potentially difficult transition!

It’s a feature called Clover Services, and it’s designed specifically to help you migrate your old website to a new Clover Sites 3 design!

So what exactly does that mean for you? Well, let me spell it out!

What Is Website Migration?

In short, “migration” is a term people use to describe anytime a website goes through a major transition. If your website changes platforms, structure, content, design, or even URL location, that’s a website migration. It’s a big transition. And often, it requires help!

Why Would You Migrate Your Site?

Well, because a refresh is a good idea from time to time!

Speaking specifically about Clover Sites 3, you’ll want to transition your site to this new platform ASAP because it has a ton of brand new features and is optimized to look great on any device!
