"READING IN THE PEW BEFORE SERVICE"
RESULTS ALL WEEK LONG
Print bulletins work on Sunday mornings. Your congregation gathers together and they sit in their pew and look over their bulletin before service starts.
The rest of the week, they are checking their email, texting with their friends, using Facebook, and posting a selfie (and not checking your app).
bltn pushes your message out the rest of the week to your congregation giving you "reading in the pew before service" results all week long.
There is no more pleading for them to check your website, or open your app, or "PLEASE don't just throw away your bulletin on the way out".
Professional and unique bulletin templates in a variety of styles and formats.
Printed and Digital
Many churches are not ready to only do digital bulletins. Matching Digital and Printed bulletins are automatically created each week.
Announcements and events are managed and scheduled in an easy online interface.
WRITE IT ONCE. PUSH IT OUT.
Your people are on all different platforms. They are on their phones. Some of them live on Facebook. Others are Instagramers. Some are addicted to their inbox and others you can't stop from texting (and some can't figure out how to turn their phone on).
Wouldn't it be nice if you could just put the details for the next event in each of their hands, in the right way, at the right time?
BLTN allows you to write once and push it out where they are from one unified application.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why text messages? Wouldn't an app be better?
We believe that bltn should be "pushy". Your communication is more effective when you push it out to your congregation (like through a text message) instead of putting it on your app and hoping someone sees it.
Along the same lines, our metrics and other studies shows us that the open-rates for text messages is at least twice (if not much more) as effective as a notification from an app.
Should I be printing bulletins?
Churches are a family and families are inherently multi-generational. As such, we built a platform that can serve every level of technological proficiency in your congregation. If it makes sense in your context to print bulletins for the older generation - serve them in that way. bltn makes it really easy.
When all the youth in your church are wearing augmented reality glasses - bltn will be there.
Is your keyboard broken? "Bulletin" has vowels.
Our catch-phrase is "build a better bulletin". We love the tradition of the Sunday print bulletin, but we want to push church communication forward and embrace new technologies. With that in mind, we picked the most "webby", "hip", "internety" name we could think of.
