I want to take a moment to talk about advertising and marketing. Many of you, over the past year have come to me to share your ideas about how to “best spread” the news about St Ann’s. I want to say Thank You for your input; I love to hear all of your ideas. Over the past year, we have done many things to organize our marketing efforts: television advertising, radio, newspaper, church bulletins, improved brochures, business cards, healthcare booth displays, speaking engagements, and to improve our social media presence. The quest for that next idea continues, and that is where you come in.
I have asked our television film crew to work with us on a series of “Story Ads”. I would like to present your personal testimony as to why you chose to live here, and why you continue to stay. Some examples are; how did you met your best friend at St Ann’s, or how is having a pet in your life important? Why is having a raised garden important to you in the summer? Really, I just want to hear your stories.
You will find the form to fill out, on a different page in the Annlines. They can be turned in to me at the front desk. I cannot wait to hear from you.
With each story submission, you will get a chance to enter a drawing for a twenty-five dollar gift card, courtesy of WDIO.
