Did you see Seth Godin’s unique Thanksgiving gift to his readers? – SCN Encourager

Take the time to browse through it… and snag a possible school PR idea, too!

Seth Godin must have some “school communicator” in him.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 7.34.29 PMHe consistently manages to strike the right chord.

Godin’s a master marketer.

But he’s never salesy or pushy the way most of our commercial message-makers now seem to be.

He actually works hard to convey the right context… in the right spirit… at the right moment… and this is why I think he’s got to have some “school communicator” in him.

The school communicators I know (like you!) also work hard to do the same.

Yesterday Godin emailed a Thanksgiving gift to his readers.

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 7.50.11 PMHis downloadable pdf is certainly a unique presentation – something he hopes will inspire a little more thoughtful engagement between family members and friends gathered together for a Thanksgiving table.

Leave it to Godin to figure out a way to “crowdsource” the meaning of Thanksgiving.

I particularly liked this quote by Robert Nelson Jacobs.

“I think we’ve got to measure goodness by what we embrace, what we create, and who we include.”

This one’s a keeper in my book.

Godin was also smart enough to make his participatory pdf totally “Page family” friendly, too.

It’s meaningful and touches your heart, but it’s still short enough to be squeezed in during the halftime of the Lions game.


Along with the right context… in the right spirit… Godin still connects with the right Thanksgiving priorities!
