Iranians are amongst the highest users of the Internet in the non-western world. In a country of almost 80 million people that is a huge opportunity we cannot afford to miss. This is why we serve Farsi-speaking people all around the world through our websites. Read more about our Internet Ministry here.
In this article, we share with you the latest updates as well as some statistics regarding our internet ministry.
Our Bible College now has 845 active students who are studying our 143+ online free lessons. Our technical team members have made it possible for our students inside Iran to receive free VPN services from us by sending an empty email to firstname.lastname@example.org. A number of students inside Iran have thanked us for this useful service.
Our students are receiving responses to their posts on a daily basis. These include questions, suggestions, problem reports, etc. They hear from us often within 10 hours.
Our news agency, FCNN has recorded 563,914 hits just on the homepage since its launch in April 2016. That’s more than 1,320 views per day just for the homepage! We have hundreds if not thousands of views on posts/pages too.
After receiving many requests asking us to secure our 222 Publications online shop, we secured the website and encrypted it end-to-end using SSL certificates. Now our customers can securely surf and order on our online shop. In addition to securing the website, we are upgrading its looks and features completely. We will launch the new version of our online shop soon!
The other website we have completely re-designed is our Family Website which aims to help and educate Farsi-speaking families around the world. The new design is very user-friendly and completely mobile-friendly. Now our visitors can use the website on any device comfortably. Our content managers are working hard to publish fresh content on this website on a weekly basis.
Our Q&A website, PorPasokh now has detailed answers to 653 questions by the content managers and the visitors. Our team members are working hard to answer more and more questions as time goes by.
We have added new sections and pages to our main website too. Our Netherlands page was launched recently. Users can find information regarding the services of 222 Ministries in Dutch. In addition to this page, our Netherlands team has created a Quiz about Christianity and Iran. People who participate in this quiz have the chance of winning a pearl.
Our technical team members are putting a lot of time and effort into all of our websites. Our goal is to serve as many Farsi-speaking people as we can, globally. The statistics are showing that we are doing really well for an organization that has not appropriated any funds for paid advertising.
