The most powerful word in marketing

You may be among those who have yet to hear that the most powerful word in marketing new(or really, promotion) is “new!” More powerful even than “free” and able to leap tall buildings, too. Everyone reacts to “New,” no matter what the product. But for ministry types, is this a problem? Doesn’t Ecclesiastes teach that “there is nothing new under the sun”? Are we misleading our audience when we claim “new”? No, people love new and will accept a new anything: book, newsleterr, blog, new hymn…well, maybe not that, program, etc.

Use “New” sparingly but use it.

Remembering the Teacher’s context in Ecclesiastes: we are being taught about the secular life versus the spiritual life.
