Hello OurChurch.Com webmasters,

One of the sayings we have hear at OurChurch.Com is, "We think of our members more like ministry partners than clients." Because you're our brother or sister in Christ, we care about your church, school, ministry, or business is doing because we know it has an eternal impact.

Even though we think of all of our members as ministry partners, this month we're focusing specifically on our partnership opportunities - our Spread the WWWord! partnership program for individuals and organizations and the new Organization Alliances for associations/denominations.

Learn more about them in this month's newsletter plus check out the funny video, coupon, and hosting special.

In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck

1) EARN $ & VISITORS IN PARTNERSHIP MONTH
March is Partnership Month at OCC. March is Partnership Month at OurChurch.Com. We're putting the focus on our partnership program. Encouraging those of you who are not participating to sign up, working with those of you who are partners to help you be more successful, and discussing with you what we can do to make the program better. Read the Partnership Month Announcement for more details.

2) STARTER/AD-FREE SPECIAL
If you still have a free site with a long ourchurch.com web address and ads on it, this is your chance to take your website to the next level and get a great deal in the process. This month only upgrade to the Starter Hoting Package and Ad-Free Option for only $98 for the year. That's a savings of $40 off the normal rate and $78 if you were to pay monthly. Order now!

3) BLOG UPDATE - PROBLEM WITH FACEBOOK PAGES FOR CHURCH
As I wrote a couple weeks ago, Facebook has made some big changes to Facebook Pages that will be a game-change for churches. Theoretically anyway.

Facebook claims pages function a lot more like personal profiles now. Most importantly status updates, links, pictures and videos posted to an organization’s page are supposed to show up in the new feed of all that organization’s “fans.” (Ugh! Can’t stand the term “fans.”)

Unfortunately it’s not working out that way for my church’s page.
