The Link Card links to a URL outside of Church Connect. When clicked, they will open up another tab to the specified URL that you choose.
A link card allows you to direct members and guests to other content on the internet. This effectively turns your Church Connect page into a hub for all other content related to your church or ministry!
Here are some ways we've seen churches use this card:
Add the URL in the "Link Address" box within the flyout menu for that card. Make sure the link includes the "https://" at the beginning.
This determines where the link card will take people when they click or tap on it. Double-check the URL hasn't been deactivated or the content on that page hasn't been removed before adding the link to the card.
Below are some best practices when adding and managing Link Cards:
When creating your Link Cards, remember that most people are visual. Try to use pictures whenever possible when creating a Link Card. This will make your card stand out and save people time when they're navigating through your Connect Page.
After creating the card, immediately test it out. Open the app on your phone and tap on the card. This is to make sure the link isn't broken and leads people to the right webpage.
Do this periodically. Sometimes the owner of the page will change their URL or will take that page down altogether. You want to always be sure the card takes people where you want them to go.
Don't add too many link cards to your Connect page. The best thing to do is determine 1-3 other pages on the internet your church wants to point people toward.
