What is a Christian digital marketing professional? Its dedicated leadership focuses on helping others soothe (or solve) their concerns while growing your Ministry! During our time here on earth, that is how we all survive.

Christian digital marketing professionals at work.

Tuesday – February 07, 2023

The first step in any venture (successful or not) is ALWAYS a dream. Or, perhaps better put, it is ALWAYS where you think you are being led. Just make sure you know who is doing the actual leading. This is Important!

“Dream big – dream very big. Work hard – work very hard. And after you’ve done all you can, you stand, wait, and fully surrender.” — Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Gail Winfrey, also known best as Oprah, is an American talk show host, television producer, actress, author, and media proprietor.

But dreaming isn’t enough. Virtually everybody dreams of a better life. The difference between the general public and a Christian Advertising Professional is that the latter forms those dreams into a cost-effective marketing plan. Perhaps put another way, Christian digital marketing people dream of helping others before themselves. This should be the basis of all marketing, but especially Christian Marketing.

Successful Christian advertising entrepreneurs are people we can all look up to and want to be more like. Such as:

  • Truett Cathy: Founder of Chick-fil-A
  • Mary Kay Ash – Founder of Mary Kay Cosmetics
  • John D. Rockefeller – Founder of Standard Oil
  • Blake Mycoskie – Founder of TOMS Shoes
  • David & Barbara Green  – Founders of Hobby Lobby
  • Dolly Parton
  • Strive Masiyiwa – Philanthropist and Telecommunications Entrepreneur
  • R.G. LeTourneau – Inventor and Industrialist
  • Sam Walton – Retail Pioneer and Philanthropist
  • Carla Harris – Wall Street Executive and Motivational Speaker
  • And so many other lesser known who devoted their lives to Christian Marketing

But unfortunately, most (if not all) had people in their “dreamer stage” and beyond who thought they were crazy. “You’re wasting your time.” I wonder how often Mr. Cathy’s Christian marketing staff heard stuff such as Another fast food restaurant chain, and it’s not even open on Sundays. And no hamburgers. Yeah, that will go nowhere.

“For every person you encounter who offers you a note of encouragement, nine are standing behind them, waiting (just waiting) to do the opposite!”

— Robert J Taylor – Project manager a Rejected Stone. A Christian marketing team

It would help if you distanced yourself from these negative people; the problem is their everywhere. Negative individuals will pull you down and force you to waste time questioning yourself.

It was once said that you must dress for the job you want, not the job you already have. The same logic applies here; you must constantly think of yourself as successful, and events will more likely move you in that direction.

Please understand me; these discouraging types are not necessarily bad people. Most believe they care and don’t want you to get hurt. Others are jealous that you have the chutzpah to follow your dreams and ambitions. They are not entrepreneurial and, therefore, can’t and will never understand. Just ask anyone who has done Christian Advertising or Christian web hosting.

Investing in Christian Advertising may be scary sometimes, but its necessary
Questions you should be asking

I would suggest asking yourself three earnest questions. And I advise you to think long and hard about this because the true answer may not be what you assume is obvious.

  1. Do you want to be successful? A study about 10-12 years back concluded that most people have a higher fear of success than failure. They can deal with failure. They can throw up their hands and tell themselves (and others) that they gave it their best shot, lick their wounds, and move on. But success can be scary! There are countless what-ifs to deal with. Don’t hire a Christian marketing agency before you are sure you are in it to win it

I’m receiving so much work that I can’t keep up

I can’t find good help

My product/service isn’t all that good after all

They start saying bad things about me online

I’m not as talented at Christian advertising/marketing as I thought I was

(And the worse one of all)—My spouse was right; I should have listened to them

I know these thoughts are a real problem; they affected me a while back.  You need to get over this, I did it and so can you!  I found an article on this topic you may want to check out, or if you’d like to discuss it, message me.  I’ll set up a Zoom call for us.  I know that sometimes talking to someone who’s been there helps. Our Christian marketing agency is here to help you succeed.

  1. Do you have enough money to handle startup costs and living expenses? – If your business doesn’t make money in the short term (and most don’t), this planning step is essential and something you need to consider. Of course, you don’t need this to add to any possible anxieties you may be having, but it never hurts to have a plan B in case it’s needed.
  2. Do you have mental support?  Is there someone close to you that you can bounce ideas off of and get good objective advice?  I did not have such a person, and it cost me big time.  So, please consider this and seek out positive, business-minded impartial people you can talk to.  Having a business partner can be your biggest asset in the startup phase and hopefully won’t become a pain in the asset as time goes on. Once again, if you don’t have that type of support, our Christian marketing agency is not just Christian in name only. We’re someone you can bounce ideas off of and we’ll get results together.

a Rejected Stone would like to meet you and discuss your venture. We will be professional, non-judgmental, and completely confidential. In addition, we will do what we can to help you succeed, whether you become a client or not. This service is my Ministry to help entrepreneurs and non-profits succeed, so your success can bless many others.

One example is what Christian web hosting organizations you choose. Just because one is less expensive or higher priced doesn’t necessarily make it a good deal. As a Christian marketing agency, we can negotiate with companies that can best assist you with choosing the right one with all the maximum features at a discount.  

Entrepreneurship is defined as dreamers looking to make their customers’ lives better and more accessible. Before starting any Christian digital marketing, you must examine whether or not this is what you want. Or what you’re cut out for. Being the “boss” is not always glamorous, especially initially. Christian Advertising, web hosting, and marketing all play a role in your success. Unless you know what your doing, I strongly suggest don’t waste your time and resources. But seeing your dreams come together using cost-effective marketing plans can be one of the greatest feelings ever. Stay clear of negative people and surround yourself with successful ones, both young and old. Dress for the part you want, both literally and (more so) mentally.
