Seth Godin Says Poll Results

April 22, 2009 by

2009_04_22_sethgodinsayspollresults.jpgA couple weeks ago, Seth Godin said some things about design capabilities that set off a firestorm in the Church Marketing Lab. So we wanted to know what kind of design skills our readers have.

30% of you are better than Average Joe. But after all, that’s why so many people have lakefront property at Lake Wobegon. Kidding of course, I’m sure those 30% of you are truly better than 50% of the population.

A solid quarter of you are mediocre by admission, but you’re on the up-and-up. And another 18% of you are subpar, but you want to get better. For both of those groups, the Church Marketing Lab could be a great place for you to hone your skills.

23% of you have no worries because you’re a design professional. You need Seth Godin talking to you about graphic design about as much as you need another pastor telling you to “grunge it up a bit.”

A final 4% of you admit that you suck, and you’re all right with that. And we’re proud of you for admitting it and being all right with it.

This week, we want to know, which of these two sources of publicity would you prefer for your church? A viral YouTube video or a lead story in a local paper?
