As many of you know, I own a company, STATIC Solutions, LLC, that designed Middle School programing for the Catholic faith. I have been trying to market the program for a few years now, to no avail. So I have decided to stop the marketing efforts, stop the development efforts and just place online, for free, the current materials I have. Parishes will be able to download and use all the material as they wish for free. No fee at all.
In some ways it is a good feeling, because it will free up my time, I spent tons of my own time on the development of the material, yet never saw a return. But in a lot more ways it makes me sad. My dream was to create a Catholic company that developed and delivered a quality product that was exciting and true to the faith. I feel I have done that, but was unable to market it. So I will just place it on the web for free. I hate to see it just sit there doing nothing.
I will ask for, but not require a fee, if the parish feels it is worth paying for. I will not set a price, but will allow the parish to determine the value, if any. I would also like to see feed back on how the program worked for them and there parish. But once again will not require this.
It truly is a sad day for me, but in the end I feel it is all for the best. I will post the web sit address when I have redone it and uploaded all the documents. It should be with in a week or two.
Thanks to all who said a prayer for me and my venture….
We’re connected through LinkedIn. I have a few questions for you regarding this curriculum you developed:
1.) What market testing did you do before you designed it?
2.) Did you confirm that there is a “starving crowd” for this kind of thing?
I may be able to help ‘resurrect’ (no pun intended) your dreams for this.
