What Have We Meant to You?: Giveaway & Discount

July 28, 2014 by

It’s the last week of our 10-year anniversary celebration. What a month it’s been: all the discounts, all the conversation about whether or not we should still exist, those sweet T-shirts. But we’re not done yet.

We’ve got a 10-Year Anniversary Hangout in a few hours. There’s still time to snag one of those 13 lucky T-shirts (Wait… what’s this? A 14th T-shirt? Huh. I wonder what we should do with that?). We also have a few more voices coming on the ‘Does church marketing still suck?’ question.

And today… we’ve got another great discount and a giveaway. Double bonus.

YouTube for Churches Discount

Way back on June 30 we talked about YouTube For Churches by Sean Cannell. It’s a great little book explaining why your church should be on YouTube. Sean even shared why YouTube is better than Vimeo.

This week only Sean is offering a big discount on YouTube For Churches, dropping the price to 99 cents. It’s normally $5.95, so you’ll want to jump on this deal.

Get Noticed Giveaway

Get Noticed by Sean CannellBut a discount isn’t enough. Sean also wanted to give away 10 copies of his short ebook, Get Noticed!: How to Use Social Media to Grow Your Brand & Reach More People. All you need to do to enter is tell us what Church Marketing Sucks has meant to you over the past 10 years (but we really don’t need to bribe you, do we?). Maybe our name made you smile, maybe our resources helped you out in a pinch. Let us know. Here’s how it works:

  1. Post a comment below answering the question, “What has Church Marketing Sucks meant to you?”
  2. We’ll draw 10 winners at random on Thursday, July 31 to receive a free copy of the ebook.

Congrats to our winners!

So what do you say: What has Church Marketing Sucks meant to you?

    This site has been a great resource, especially recently as we’re thinking through social media a bit more.

    Reminded how much of our marketing has sucked BUT there is always the opportunity to remake what we say and get it out for others to see.

    This site has helped me know that I’m not alone, I’m not crazy and I’m not just a critical person who thinks my church is doing things wrong. It’s given me data to back up my proposals and inspiration when I wasn’t sure what to try. Thanks!

    “If we will not mediatize we will fossilize” I believe in this thought of our leader Ptr. Jade Gascon in our church. We work a lot to do this using some knowledge from Sean and Think International but it make me sucks because of there so many demands but the suppy is very poor, praying for provisions. Hope you will help us to get more information on how our church marketing be more effective. Thank you and Godbless :D

    CMS helps keep me from settling into the rut of sub-par communications, helps me remember to do things better.

    This site lets me know I’m not alone in my relentless pursuits of clarity in church communication. Regular reality checks are also wonderful.

    CMS has been a tremendous resource for me. As the media director at my church it is my responsibility to keep up with the current trends. CMS does just that! It also gives me great resources and books to be able to learn constantly.

    Church Marketing Sucks has allowed me to help various ministries brand themselves where there wasn’t a brand and re-brand ministries where the branding concepts had been absolete. I was able to volunteer these services to those organizations as many of them could not see the value in bridging marketing concepts into their outreach departments. Thank you for being here and giving me validity to a cutting edge approach!

    I will admit, your name did make me smile. My first thought was: “would my other Christian friends be offended if I shared links from this site?” ;)

    My big takeaway from the site was this: the theology of church communication (or church marketing). I believe we should do what God wants in every aspect of our lives, including what we do for business or evangelism. It’s great that there are sections on the site talking about topics like, “is marketing evil?” and whatnot. What a great angle to talk to our more… traditionally-minded friends about the uses (and Biblical authority) of marketing to “gospel-ize” to the world!

    CMS has been a great way for me to find resources, read articles that make me feel like I’m not alone in the struggle, and connect with others. When I first started out, I really enjoyed having the lab on flickr to discuss ideas and post drafts for critique. CMS and its resources, people and initiatives have helped me better understand church marketing, and how really, we’re all on the same team. I’ve also been able to use a few articles as evidence or backup for comm decisions, which has helped make some good transitions in the way we do things. :)

    Love the “reality check” you provide, and the common sense approach to solving my communication deficiencies!
