first presbyterian church starkville

recommendation for Web Design

primary Goals:

  • Streamline the website aesthetics and navigation – Currently, the website has about 16-19 pages (some content is repeated) and information is a bit hard to find. It also isn't giving a first-time visitor a good idea of who the church is. 

  • Easier sermon management – I'd like to help find a solution to how sermons, in particular, are managed. I've done some research and found that Buzzsprout looks like a good option. Sermons can be uploaded on Buzzsprout and then they are published to iTunes and embedded in your website. I don't believe they reveal their pricing on their website, but a Google search said that it's about $12 a month. 

  • Bulletins – Bulletins can easily be stored on your new website as pdfs. I'd like to manage these with the blog function for consistency. This is what is already being done but with Squarespace, you'll have a bit more control over how they look.

  • 1.5 hours of photography with us. Photography scheduled for Palm Sunday. Laura Beth and Cole will travel to Starkville to photograph the church service and take staff photos (if needed).

    • All photos will be edited and uploaded to a proofing website where you’ll receive a code for digital downloads of the high resolution images.
