Clever Ads – You’ll Smile…and Think!

Clever Ads Are IN! 

The web gives you millions of potential viewers, but only if your ads can be a whole lot more entertaining than most.  What could you do to make your ads a little edgier……a little more from the far side…..well, okay — weirder??  

How about this great ad — I have watched it at least 3 times:  (okay I lied….maybe 5 times….)  I really only wanted the first ad, but  the Sesame Street copy is really great, too…

Naturally you don’t have the millions that Old Spice has spent.  But you can bring some fun to what you have.  I was looking at a client’s web site to read about how she started her business.  I thought it would be just like everyone else’s, but here’s her story:


“Once upon a time, in a land far far away, there lived a wide eyed fitness junky named Holly.

or if you don’t have a lot of money, you can make a goofy sign (for FREE) that adds a little fun to your business:

Funny ads

…and be sure, after you have come up with a good ad, to take a final look at where it is going to be shown:

Funny ads - Plane flying the wrong way

Or change your ad’s perspective — be just a little out of the box:Funny ads - Ad for Pepsi Light

It really doesn’t take much to get your point across —Funny ads - Diet coke ad

So how about loosening up a little?  Trying for a little weird thought?? – Funny ads are IN! Imagine if people watched your ads a couple of times and shared them with friends!
