We are deep in our tween years and about to become a teenager soon. Yes, RT Creative Group is 12 years old.
What happened 12 years ago today? Well, see below.
1. A website launched called Vertical Sky Productions.
This website was held together by duck tape and gum. I LOVED getting orders because I truly loved shipping them to churches and hearing about the impact they had. Still love that.
2. We offered a product called Igniter Videos, Volume 1.
The website had one product. This DVD contained 5 videos that I (Rob) thought pastors could use to teach. The videos were: Are You Amazed?, The Crowd or the Cross, That's My King!, The Gospel According to Blaine, and Psalm 139 (this is our current free video!). Finishing these videos was one of the hardest things I've ever done!
3. We waited and hoped for orders!
We weren't guaranteed ANY orders! In fact, early on, we didn't have too many. That said, our mission and purpose were strong, and made up for my lack of marketing and sales. We just continued on!
Over time, things caught on, and I'm forever grateful to all the 'early adopters' of Igniter. We are just as excited about the next 12 years as we were the first!
