Killer Marketing Messages

Here’s a great way to get your message about libraries in general, or your library in particular (using your library specifically is better, I think) out in a memorable way.

  • Helped XXX children learn to read (number of children’s library cards or whatever number floats your boat)
  • Helped XXX children learn to love books.
  • Gave XXX of children a head start on life.
  • There are XXX possible worlds to explore from this library (number of books).
  • Introduced XXX people to a new world. (patron library cards)
  • We have assisted in XXX job searches this year.

From Marketing Message – Public Libraries Helped 297.6 Million People in 2010 (Librarian by Day.)

Tell me, what statistics would you use in this way?

    Worry about pro-library messages that have poor grammar or spelling. “XXX possible world’s to explore…” No apostrophe, please!
