It’s a funny feeling, sitting here with a website that we have been working on literally for years, finally finished.
But nobody knows we are here. We need a communications strategy!
I have delivered marketing workshops for non-profits.
Folks are always turning to me, or sending me emails, asking:
“Can you promote this for me?”
What many people do not realize is that promotion is both a discipline and a lot of hard work. As I sit here, browsing through this website which has so much love and information in it, I am torn. You see, I sometimes feel guilty promoting. Sometimes I wonder, should I just wait, and let Our Lady take over?
Do I let Our Lady be my marketing master?
Do I let people discover the new website on their own? The dribble method?
Advent is coming up, maybe I should just sit and wait and let the Lord do what he wants with it. Well, these are things I will talk about with my spiritual director tomorrow. But something tells me, that Our Lord wants me to use the gifts that have been given to me. and the talents I have honed over the years. I am praying on this, it has been days, probably well over a week and I haven’t told anybody. It is taking a tremendous amount of discipline for me not notify every person I know.
Praying, waiting and sensing. Part of me is wondering, “What am I waiting for?”
And in the meantime I have been studying at the university of Google to learn; what’s the best way to do this? I don’t think you can take the marketer out of me. Afterall, I am marketing for the Lord. Do you hear me? It is our goal to get more souls to heaven!
