I’ve been thinking a great deal lately on what makes a great church website. I’ve seen some beautiful websites, gorgeous sites that are virtually non-functional and, on the other end of the spectrum, there are those content rich sites that are so densely packed with information they can only be used by experienced research librarians that don’t easily succumb to boredom and mental fatigue. Critiquing those on the extremes of this spectrum is hard, but what about the majority of the websites that fall into the middle of the road? Any rating mechanism is, of course, entirely subjective, however, a rating mechanism could help focus your site’s continuous improvement efforts.
Here at Catholic Tech Talk, we’ve come up with what we think is a simple, yet effective rating mechanism for your website. If you’re interested in seeing how you’re doing, click on the attached form and take our simple test. Its will take less than 10 minutes of your time and hopefully help you plan your next set of changes to your site.
Being a blog, feedback on this rating form is encouraged. This is Version 1.0. A little crowd-sourcing here will only help it get better!
