Hey guys,

I hope I can get some opinions on new ads we want to start circulating around the web. Mostly on googles network, hope many of you will help us with your opinions on them:


A bit more on the goal of the ads:

1st Ad:

To get people to try out the free weekly series and perhaps begin supporting AC.

2nd Ad:

To get people to check out the unique options we have on the site and the low cost.

3rd Ad:

Also about the features and options of the site but does not mention the costs.

Any opinions on the matter would help, even if you think we should use completely different text. You may see something from a different point of view so every opinion counts. The ads rotate if you don't' see the rotation just right click on the ad and view the image to see the rotation.

Yeah the only big thing I see is to becareful using the word "free" cause like Keke said it might be misleading. I remember the first time I heard about this site it was being advertized as completely free and that threw me away for a bit until I finally decided to start paying since this site is the best anime site I've seen yet :)

Well how about for ad #1 we say Anime Crave is now offering a free series every week.

Then in smaller print kinda like ad #2 we say:

Only one random series is available every week. Visit us today to see this weeks free series & get a taste of Anime Crave's Live membership.

Btw did no one have a problem with being able to read ad #2? I mean does it grab a persons attention enough for them to read it?

Glad that the ad got you to visit the site and check it out thejthar, but ya we do not want people thinking its free. It just ends up frustrating everyone in the end.

only thing that grabs my attention in ad 2 is the fact that you said "less THEN 17 cents a day" when it's "less THAN 17 cents a day"

assholes like me who are dicks about grammar will immediately knock the site down a few pegs, and it will lose some credibility in their eyes.those guys are also some of the ones that would be willing to pay, so we should probably change that.

I didn't notice that one.

Ad 2 is a bit wordy for sure. Ads from what I know on a marketing point of view are short and sweet. grab attention. but then this is the intarwebs we are talking about here, so who really knows.

short and sweet is definitely something to consider. like "Animecrave.less than 17 cents a day for the best selection of anime around" or something along those lines.

How about this..

"I wipe my !$! with 5 dollars.

Can you find a better way to spend your money?"

that's pretty good. in fact...we could probably take over the entire gaia server with that ad.

hmm I dis-agree Primary, now if you said the best selection of Legal anime.. cause torrents by far have a better selection. Unless that whole legal thing is always supposed to be implied but, who follows the rules anyway?
