Preparing the Guest Experience & Follow-Up

We know that holidays and special events draw new families to your doors. How have you prepared for these guests and what is your plan for follow-up? Check out this full article on making Easter outreach awesome.


Who will be greeting visitors, and where?

  • Will it start in the parking lot, at the building entrance, at the sanctuary/auditorium entrance, or some combination?

How will you collect visitor information and record it in your system?

  • Add a Visitor during attendance (Click here for directions), collect information on cards and staff can enter in your system later that week, or use an electronic form to collect (by greeters or at your welcome center)

What is your follow-up plan?

  • What type of communication? 
  • At what frequency will you communicate?
  • Who will be the person of contact?
