1) AUGUST SPECIAL - $50 OFF EVERY BUNDLE
OurChurch.Com is pleased to announce that for the month of August we are offering $50 off any Website Services Bundle. What are Website Services Bundles you ask? A bundle is a way for you to save on everything needed for your website and save a bundle doing it. All bundles include 1 year of a hosting package with domain name, 1 year of our ad free option, both the major and Christian Search Engine Registrations. Some also include our Guarantee Search Ranking service and banner advertising. And when you order a bundle this month, you will save between $120 and $499 off the regular prices of these services. For more information on this promotion please read the full announcement.
2) COMING SOON - FEATURED LISTINGS AND IPOD GIVAWAYS
Starting in September, OurChurch.Com will be running focus months on audio, video, and e-commerce. If you were thinking about adding audio, video, or a shopping cart to your website, now is the time to do it. Each month we will provide free advertising by spotlighting OCC hosted sites utilizing these on their sites. In addition, we will be giving away cool prizes like iPods to webmasters with these on their sites. We will also be running specials on hosting packages and marketing services that can help you in your efforts.
- September: Featuring bands/musicians with songs/music clips on their site.
- October: Featuring churches with sermon audio on their site.
- November: Featuring sites with shopping carts or facilitate the purchase of products or services through PayPal (not donations).
- December: Featuring sites with video
3) OCC IS HIRING
OurChurch.Com is looking to add a Web Developer to our team. If you are, or know of someone who is, a web developer looking to put their talent towards helping other organizations spread the Gospel of Christ, this may be the opportunity for you.
For more information, please read the position description.
4) INFO FORM SPAM
Seems like there's no limits to the methods spammers will use to try to send you their junk. One of their latest methods has been to send spam to our webmasters through the info form page. To combat this we have added spam filtering to the info form pages. If you receive spam through your info form, please forward it to our help desk so we can block future abuse from the sender.
5) WHAT'S UP WITH MYSPACE?
In July MySpace became the most popular site on the Internet. It's all the rage among teenagers these days. What is MySpace? Is it safe for kids (or adults?) Should Christians be there or avoid it? Paul has started a new series of blog articles about MySpace to answer these questions and more.
