Last summer I quit my job (yeah!) and started a one-man Market Research company that specializes in programming online surveys. I’m good at the programming part. My problem is that my consumer panel is too small. I need more people to sign up at my website so I can run the fun surveys. But I’m not pitching you for that, I have a story to tell.
So I started advertising in Google. I have text ads running on a bunch of keywords like survey, consumer panel, survey cash, and others. But the ads are only netting me 30 registrations a day. Booooooo. You let me down, Google! Or maybe my ad just sucks. (This is one of the better ones.)
Get paid for your opinion
Join our consumer panel.
Thousands interviewed daily.
Help me write a catchier ad. Give me something catchy, something culturally significant, where you look at it and say, “Yes. That’s brilliant. That’s revolutionary and culturally significant!” This is your moment to shine, you kings of men!
Here’s the rules, haiku-like in their rigidity:
Bolded line 1 (maximum 25 characters)
line 2 (maximum 35 characters)
line 3 (maximum 35 characters)
The best ad wins a $30 Amazon.com gift certificate previously gifted to my cousin! (He’s never going to come by my apartment to exchange Christmas presents anyway.)
[Note: Google ads are paid for per-click so a better ad doesn’t actually save me any money.]
