Digital Missions Champions The Digital Dominance Benchmark

Being digital and strengthening your brand in the digital space is essential to become future proof. Digital dominance helps your church or business to stay ahead of the competition and be the winner in your industry.

My years' of research and experience in the digital world has taught me that churches need to invest smartly to create digital differentiation and need:

1. A strong web presence, inviting, quick to load, searchable with clear navigation and calls to action for the members and potential visitors.

2. Mobile optimization beyond responsive design; also succinct, uncluttered and with a clearly visible value proposition.

3. Emotional engagement with church members and potential visitors, utilizing and curating relevant stories and content delivered by a compelling member experience.

4. A proactive social media strategy to engage with the church members and communities on social where they turn to for information, counsel and decision making.

5. Paid media advertising to ensure brand visibility, awareness, consideration and church member activation.

Many churches are struggling to get it ‘right’ with their digital efforts, and therefore, face the challenge to bridge the gap between member expectations and the experience they deliver as a church or ministry.

Luckily, it is possible to determine who owns the digital space in each sector and what your church can do to get or stay ahead in the digital space.

Know your digital brand strength:

That some churches are increasing their digital budget is no secret, but the question is, how far are digital initiatives taking churches in the strive for digital excellence? In the age we live in, churches need to create a competitive advantage by mastering their digital presence and engagement.

We have started an initiative under Digital Missions called the Digital Dominance Benchmark. Digital Dominance Benchmark tracks churches’ digital performance. It shows how digital dominant churches are in the digital spectrum. The Index is an indicator that describes how strong each church performs in the digital sphere.

Our benchmark will determine the church's digital positioning. Different aspects of the benchmark are more or less relevant in different church spheres. We measure digital dominance within 5 key digital areas:

1. Websites,
2. SEO,
3. Social Media,
4. Youtube (Videos) and
5. Mobile Apps.

With the data we collect we are able to rank the brands within each of the Digital pillars

The pillars consist of various KPIs that allow for deeper investigation into what exactly has affected a specific church’s digital performance and what can be done to improve performance. It can also be used to match with your current strategy and efforts to indicate what has worked well and what has not.

Why it is important:

Churches that invest strongly in their digital capabilities not only get ahead of the competition in the digital sphere but also improve their overall ministry performance. The Digital Dominance Benchmark helps you to define the right direction for your digital investments.

Why is it important to measure your digital brand strength?

- To gain insights into how other churches are performing on all digital channels
- To compare to and learn from other churches on how to improve your own digital performance.
- To learn which digital capabilities you need to improve and how.
- Being able to see whether your previous efforts have paid off and which have been less effective.

It helps you to define a digital strategy to ensure that you become the dominant player in the digital world.
