There are tools from the course that can be implemented within minutes and others that you can continue to refine over time. Similarly, the length of time it takes to paint a painting can be minutes or months - and both can be a work of art.




What is included in the Visitors To Members System course?


The course provides step-by-step video instruction on the Visitors To Members System. At it's core, the system is all about:

  1. Episodic content that engages;
  2. Landing pages and automations that convert; and,
  3. Apps and Congregant Relationship Management platforms that serve.
This includes: ✔Making episodic content that creates even more reasons for your visitors to stay a while and return beyond Sunday; ✔Building landing pages that convert anonymous visitors into known leads you can follow-up with, for a variety of church-specific content (Worship, Sunday School, and more!); ✔ Developing mission-aligned lead magnets that provide visitors with a great reason to introduce themselves to you; ✔Setting up automated communications triggers and actions that will bring value to online newcomers based on their individual needs, interests, and pain points; ✔ Launching free and low-cost apps that put everything your members need to connect with church on Sunday and beyond right in the palm of their hands (without hiring an expensive software engineer or any coding knowledge); ✔ Setting up a seamlessly integrated online church ecosystem where there is no confusion about where members should go to access the activities and people they're seeking; and, ✔ Using your enhanced online membership experience to create more meaningful and frictionless giving opportunities.
