Verdict on the Fallon Church Ads

October 24, 2005 by

What do you think of the Fallon ads?Last month we talked about some interesting church ads coming out of the UK, and one of those ads was created by the international agency Fallon. Last week we asked what you thought of those ads, and the results were fairly mixed.

42% liked them, but a combined 58% were indifferent or didn’t like the ads. Apparently marketing the church isn’t so easy, even for the mainstream professionals.

Don’t forget to check out this week’s poll where we ask who does the marketing work at your church: staff members, volunteers or an outside company.

    Well, this poll is hard to answer. We’re a new church, and ALL our staff are volunteers. So it’s a staff volunteer…?

    Sorry Betsy, we try to make every poll have answers to fit every situation, but it doesn’t always happen. For the purposes of the poll I guess I’d consider you volunteers since you’re not paid.

    I don’t mean to be antagonistic, but Rick Warren doesn’t collect a salary from Saddleback (in fact he’s paying back all that he ever earned). Does that qualify him as staff or a volunteer? =)
