Change is in the air! It seems to finally be getting warmer and the sun is out longer and longer. There could not be a better time to spruce up your ministry’s website with a theme change. Changing the theme of your website simply takes all of your existing information and slaps a new design on it.
Changing your website’s theme is a great way to gain additional equity out of your initial investment. Here at Worship Times we give you a list of design choices, you tell us which one you like, and we take care of the rest!
If you are not familiar with the process, let us give you some information and share some additional things to consider when updating your website!
Why would I want to make a theme change?
Changing themes is like getting a haircut. It is not too involved, pretty inexpensive, and yet it can make you look like a totally new you!
Popular styles and designs change over time and there is nothing worse than stumbling onto a website that has a design from the nineties.
Welcoming a new season or year with a theme change is a great way to spark some excitement with your website. It also provides a great excuse to keep up with updating your website and make sure that you are giving your members an opportunity to provide feedback about things that they like and don’t like about your existing website.
What does it take to change my website’s theme?
So, making a theme change sounds like something you want to do? Awesome! Here at Worship Times we want to make running your website as easy as possible for you. When you feel like your website needs that haircut or facelift to freshen things up, all you need to do is contact us through our support center or by emailing us directly.
From there we will help you get the ball rolling! We will send you a list of modern, elegant design options to choose from. You and your staff can then go ahead and pick the design that you feel best fits your ministry and we take care of bringing everything from your existing website and making it pretty and functional with your new theme.
Once we have all of your content moved over and looking like new we will reach out to you and get your input and approval. This is where you can request changes and fine tune all of those little details to get things just right.
How long does it take to change my theme?
Well, that is a trickier question. Here at Worship Times we don’t use a “one-size fits all” template. Every website is different and brings about its own needs. Typically 1-2 weeks is a safe estimate to make a theme change, where smaller sites can be even quicker.
I should also note that as we make your theme change your website still functions like normal! We do not make any of our changes available to the public until you give us the go-ahead.
Are there any other benefits that come from making a theme change?
Yes! When you make a theme change we take the opportunity to give you the latest and greatest of what we have to provide you! When we move you to a new theme we will move you to new servers that have some of our newest tools!
We recently moved over to a new event management system that gives you more flexibility than ever before! So, if you have been looking to expand your capabilities with your ministry’s calendar and you have been looking to spruce things up, this is a perfect excuse to make a theme change!
We have also begun working with a new tool to build beautiful sliders across your website and additional tools to display various forms of media! We are slowly working to get everyone access to all of our newest features, and oftentimes a theme change is a great way to get the ball rolling.
By making a theme change you can also work to get any questions answered from the team here and get familiar with the latest tools.
Don’t let another day go by where you don’t like the way your ministry’s website looks! Here at Worship Times we want you to be in love with your website everyday!
Requesting a theme change from our team that has tens of years of experience can help get your website back on track to looking great, being up-to-date, and being a foundational piece to help spread your ministry’s message.
