Print Ad Compilation from House of Miracles

Key Takeaways

  • Unlike other strange products that raise skepticism, this one is based more on religion, which builds faster rapport with religious followers vs. a product that is vaguely spiritual. This is evident in components like the certificate of authenticity & the mention that they will send out their "Book of Miracles" to big religious centers including The Vatican. 
  • Because of this relation to faith, a guarantee is barely stressed. Instead, it's focused more on authenticity, potential benefits & surprisingly, the strong urging to report any successful experiences for their "Book of Miracles". It's one of the most interesting testimonial-getting strategies I've seen.
