Best Practices for Electronic Communications/Messaging
Bulletin Best Practices
Bulletin fundamentals, design, and content that can assist you with providing a clear and concise message each week.
Messaging - Mobile App, Texting, Email
Electronic communication with your parishioners saves time, money, and paper. It allows you to communicate with them more effectively and immediately. It also benefits parishioners, giving them the ability to communicate with the parish one-on-one.
Online Giving Best Practices
Online giving is a critical component of parish/diocesan fundraising, now, and in the future. The Archdiocese of Seattle has long encouraged parishes to offer their parishioners the opportunity to give electronically.
Social Media Best Practices
Social media can be used as an important part of online evangelization when used correctly and has the power to reach an audience that we've never thought imaginable.
Website Best Practices
Increase the number of parishioners that are viewing
your website for information, donating, registering, and volunteering.
