4 Easy Steps to Introduce Givelify to Your Church

If you are joining Givelify, you may wonder what steps you should take next to get the most out of your new church app.

We’ve compiled a few best practices from member churches that are getting the most from their experience.

Step 1: Make the Givelify app yours

Givelify provides your parishioners with a beautiful, personal and convenient giving experience.

You can enhance this experience and make a deeper connection with the parishioners by branding your Givelify Church app with your logo, a cover photo, and a photo of the lead minister.

By making Givelify your church’s own app, parishioners will give more frequently and generously.

You can just log in and start branding your profile page now.

Step 2: Enable contributions to specific offerings

Create virtual envelopes for special offerings such as missionary trips, building funds, visiting pastor’s funds, and youth ministry.

Your parishioners can see these custom offerings in your Givelify Church app and make specific contributions toward them.

Step 3: Show the Givelify demonstration video

Show this video demonstrating how the Givelify app works for your members. Our most successful churches show it during offering time. You can embed it on your church’s website, share the link via Facebook and Twitter, and include it in your email newsletter.

Share the video  on your website and social media profiles, or include the direct link:

Step 4: Use social media to promote your Givelify presence

Let your parishioners know they can now support your ministry during worship, at home, at work, or while vacationing.

Announce your Givelify Church app on your website, Facebook page, Twitter, email newsletter, and other social media accounts. Remind your parishioners during each worship service.

We’ve even provided some social media examples to help get you started.
