Truth- Hard To Believe

"Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
John 20:29b (NIV)

Easter. Jesus is alive! You are free to believe whether He died on a cross to pay the price for your sins. It's a hard thing to do if you haven't seen the nail marks in His hands. It was a hard thing to do, His dying on a cross. But Jesus is waiting with arms opened wide, waiting for you to believe.

Crazy Salesmen

It doesn't seem to matter who you are. Salespeople are hard to avoid even if you are a dog. Everywhere you look there they are. If only it took a bark to keep them away. Even in my dreams I find someone trying to sell me something. How do you get away from that?

You can never bore someone into doing business with you!
-David Ogilvy, famous advertising executive

No, you need to interest them, intrigue them, entertain them and get them completely involved in your story and its possibilities.

Sister Patricia Proctor, a Catholic nun living in a monastery in Spokane Washington, is a unique example of someone trying to do just that. She is trying to create an impassioned picture of a life dedicated to God to help Catholics looking to renew their faith. Now I am not an advocate for the Catholic faith, but I am an advocate of Sister Patricia whose passionate commitment is very persuasive.

So You Think You Can Dance

It's sort of like the original dancing baby, but without the panache, the eeriness or the surprising elegance. What marketers need to understand about most viral videos is that they are like car wrecks. We slow down and shake our heads. We can't believe what we're seeing. Or we are seeing something for the very first time and it's remarkable.
-Seth Godin, April 2006

Ally McBeil had her dancing baby. Funny and it followed her everywhere. Now the Pillsbury Doughboy has decided to mambo. I like what Seth Godin's blog has to say about how the Doughboy grooves. For a piece of pastry, Doughboy can move.

Timing is everything. I don't care what people say different. It is.
