Last Saturday evening, I had a conversation about packaging. Not packaging as in UPS packaging, but packaging as in presentation. I had a mini-rant where I expressed frustration over the fact that the guys who have the best content often times do the worst job in packaging it. Websites are goofy, cumbersome, and aesthetically off-putting (including logo, book designs, etc.). On the other hand, the guys in the evangelical world who don’t preach the gospel or hold fast to the faith are putting out the most attractive and appealing presentations (of their junk).
If you can relate to my rant and perhaps find yourself wanting a little help with the presentation of our church or ministry, let me recommend to you a new start up called Rocket Republic. They are a business that defines their mission in the following way:
The central mission of the Rocket Republic is to help kingdom pioneers effectively carry out the vision that God has placed within them. We seek to partner with churches and church planting networks to communicate the gospel to modern culture in a clear and compelling way. To that end we labor in the details of design, development, social networking and grassroots marketing.
Rocket Republic has “launch packs” geared to meet all your design, branding, and marketing needs, especially if you a new ministry or church plant. Items in the launch packs include logo marque, website design & development, Facebook pages/apps, Twitter bg’s, posters, inviter packs, palm cards, staff ID tags & lanyards, stickers, flyers, and much more. I strongly encourage you to check them out. The investment you will make in “packaging” and presentation will serve you well.
And if you have friends or know someone who could be set free from the aesthetic depravity, send them to Rocket Republic.
