Marketing a Non-Sectarian Churches Business

There is little room for error in marketing a non-sectarian church in today's economy. Fortunately, we have the information you need to stay ahead of the curve and outperform the rest of the field.

As a business owner, it's imperative to understand that your financial metrics are inextricably linked to your marketing capacity.

In general, good business owners make good marketers. However, the most visible brands are always on the lookout for the marketing tactics competitive non-sectarian churches utilize in the marketplace.

When It's Time to Rebrand

There are many reasons why it might be time to begin a rebranding initiative - but a lack of alternative tactics is not one of them. The most successful rebranding initiatives are the culmination of a deliberate process. In a non-sectarian church, the time to rebrand is when your current brand is outdated or no longer in sync with the needs of the marketplace. All businesses change over time and rebranding can bring your business profile in line with your current core competencies. If rebranding is unavoidable, it's important to update the brand while maintaining the elements that make it recognizable to consumers.

Multichannel Marketing Strategies

There are a lot of benefits to taking a multichannel approach to marketing. Today's consumers engage with brands in diverse ways. That means brands need to demonstrate similar diversity in the channels they employ to connect with customers.

A single channel approach just isn't enough for a non-sectarian church to maintain a noticeable presence in the marketplace. In practice, multichannel means embracing a mixture of online and offline message pipelines, based on the places your customers go for information. If direct mail is an area that needs to be added to your mix, professional mailing lists from third-party providers are a no-brainer. We recommend contacting a few select list vendors to learn how you can intelligently incorporate mailing lists into a more diverse marketing strategy.

Bundling

Messaging matters - but only to the degree that it communicates value to cost-conscious consumers. Businesses that bundle products tap into the market's psyche by creating the perception (real or imagined) of cost-savings. Most non-sectarian churches have the ability to bundle multiple products and services into a single offering that customers find appealing. Will the profit margins be the same as they would be if you sold the bundled products separately? Probably not. But you'll make up for it by achieving higher sales volumes and net profits.
