Los Angeles, CA, December 03, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Dysi Design with headquarters in Los Angeles, California designed and released a new interactive website for Playa Christian Church, Los Angeles this month at no cost.
Terry Sweany, CEO of Dysi Design commented, "We are strong believers that business should give back to the community, and we put our beliefs into action."
The custom website was developed by listening to the needs of the church staff and features a branded graphic design, video hosting, enewsletter, and will include a blog by the end of the month. The beauty and attraction for many is that the website meets the needs of a population obsessed with social networking, online services, and technological devices. The website is definitely a Win Win for the church and area residents.
Sweany also noted, "We understand that non-profits need clients just like big businesses do. An excellent website is a great way to get the word out to the public about your organization and your cause."
“Websites,” Sweany continued, “and the new media are still complex and take a lot of work to be successful at, and many churches don’t have the resources. Huge social networks like Facebook and Myspace monopolize people’s attention, and churches don’t know how to respond. We want to change that.”
This is no small benefit for a church that is just starting out with limited resources. After partnering with Dysi Design www.playachurch.org saw a drastic increase in targeted online traffic and rankings, including being ranked #1 on Google for "Playa Vista Churches," "Churches in Culver City," and "Marina del Rey Churches."
Potential visitors are now introduced to the church through an interactive experience that is both contemporary and reassuring. "New residents moving into the recently developed Playa Vista community adjacent to the church are technologically savvy," commented Sweany. “They desire a faith community that compliments their lifestyle.”
This is a not a substitute for personal evangelism, but it is definitively an effective outreach to the area residents.
The site has been designed aiming to assist the church in communicating and old message using new media. In fact, the Media page of the website includes links to everything from the church Youtube page to the church’s RSS feed.
Not surprisingly, as first time visitors are asked, “How did you hear about us?” More and more the answer comes back, “We found you on the internet.”
