> @stickyJesus 4) Jesus: Master of buzz
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! ~Psalm 119:102 (NIV)
Buzz got it’s start in the Garden of Eden when Eve recommended the apple. ~@stickyJesus
Adam and Eve were in a relationship.
Eve tasted the forbidden apple.
It was sweet.
So she told Adam to try it.
And he trusted her.
So he ate, too.
The number one reason people buy or try something is that someone they trust told them to do so. ~@stickyJesus
It’s called “buzz.”
Word of mouth marketing.
And customers are bees that taste and spread.
Jesus was the Buzz Master.
People swarmed after Him.
And spread the word.
If Jesus had a website today, it would be sticky.
Visitors would camp out there.
Because His message is sweet.
His stats would surpass any system’s ability to measure.
Suffice to say that if you add up your friends, followers, and RSS blog subscriptions across the Web, then one blog, post, video, sermon link, tweet or post could easily reach tens of thousands of people in one given day. ~@sticky Jesus
We have the sweetest, most sticky message of all time.
And an amazing ability to spread it.
We can build relationships.
We can build trust.
We can taste and see.
And we can share the buzz.
The wise counsel God gives when I’m awake is confirmed by my sleeping heart. Day and night I’ll stick with God; I’ve got a good thing going and I’m not letting go. ~Psalm 16:7-8 (Message)
1. What aspect of this chapter was the stickiest for you?
2. How can we be channels of trust online?
3. Can you recall a time when the buzz from someone’s online words sweetened the bitterness of a bad day?
