Peter Jackson has a new movie coming out next month called Sector 9. Being a fan of the SciFi genre, I’ll be seeing this one. It’s about aliens who come to earth seemingly accidentally and just want to leave. We humans; however, trap them here and segregate them off to their own isolated area. It looks to have lot of past and present social issues tied into this SciFi movie.
Last weekend I went to see a movie and saw this sign on the bathroom door.
Humans only allowed in this bathroom.
If you hadn’t seen the preview of this movie, you’d probably wonder what this sign is all about. There is a web address at the bottom that one could look up for more information.
Regardless, I love this sign. I love this kind of marketing. When I saw it I knew exactly what it was about. It gotÂ me more excited about the movie. If I didn’t know what this was about, I probably looked up the website to see what in the world this was about.
Has your ministry or church ever done this kind of advertising for an event or program. Something not entirely overt, but clever and creative like this?

That’s hilarious! I’m a huge fan of marketing. Coming from a broadcasting background gives me quite the advantage on a casual Pastor because of my marketing experience.
One of the most untapped resources in church marketing is to market a casual event as if it is not casual. In other words… you’re already planning to have your regular volunteer Mr Smith teach the kids next week. Announce that Mr Smith is going to be teaching the children about worship next week and your kids don’t want to miss it!
… it’s just a regular service… but they don’t know that. The other thing is to brag a little bit… whenever a good thing happens, tell people about it. People like being a part of something good… and if that something is your church and your children’s ministry… you’ll have members and volunteers headed your way.
So typical. Live long and prosper my scifi friend.
BTW great marketing i can appreciate good marketing even if it was thought up by a bunch of guys sitting in a room with spock ears on. Ha!
