Consuming CMS Poll Results

November 3, 2009 by

How do you most frequently enjoy your dose of CMS?Last week we asked how you most frequently enjoy receiving Church Marketing Sucks content. We have a number of different delivery systems, and we were curious to see which ones are used the most. Of course there is a bit of bias, since the poll only shows up on one of those methods–and I think we see that in the results.

The most popular way to get CMS is right here on the site. More than half of you do that, though it may have something to do with the fact that the poll is right here on the site. If the numbers aren’t skewed, it’s quite a statement that nearly half the audience of a web site doesn’t get their content on the web site. There’s a lesson for you.

Up next was the 24% who turn to RSS. After that comes social media with 14% enjoying @cmsucks on Twitter and 8% partaking on Facebook.

A little surprising, but a whopping 0% liked our e-mail newsletter best. Ouch. Hopefully that just means it’s a secondary way of accessing CMS. Yeah, that’s it.

Feel free to tell us what you really think in the comments. This week we ask which of the five ways to sabotage the creative process is your church guilty of?

    This just confirms my controversial post from earlier this year on Media Salt… I’m convinced that email newsletters are dead.

    This doesn’t confirm your controversial post. It simply means that people who are more technologically inclined will use an RSS reader or come to the site since there are regular updates (unlike most church websites).
    Makes sense for a blog, but not for church communications.
