Marketing Your Website

What's New ?
Humor in Advertising

Humor can be a great marketing tool, but be careful, not everyone thinks the same things are funny. What seems funny to one may be offensive to another.

Most people enjoy funny television commercials, and during the Super Bowl funny commercials become a second attraction. However, the same commercial in print may not come across as humorous. Each medium offers it self to a different type of humor and it is important that we keep this in mind as we develop our advertising.

A humorous comic may illustrate a point on your website but it may be difficult to translate that humor to radio. The tone or inflection in the voice of a radio or television announcer may create a humorous atmosphere that simply can’t be captured in print. To avoid problems, Ads should be tested before they are shown to the public.

Large marketing firms often test ads and promotions with focus groups to test their effectiveness before beginning a broader campaign. A focus group can offer their feelings and perceptions regarding an ad and help avert marketing mistakes. Friends and family members can take the place of a focus group but be sure to explain why you are asking them to review your ad so they don’t try to spare your feelings.

Always view attempts at using humor in your marketing with a critical eye, if the viewer doesn't thinks it's funny we should be certain that at least it can't be seen as offensive.
Micro Phone Lens

The Micro Phone Lens turns any Smartphone into a handheld 15X microscope" , at least that is what it says on the Micro Phone Lens website.

The Micro Phone Lens is a tiny silicone based lens that sticks to the camera lens of your smart phone and offers up to 15x magnification.

This tiny reusable lens sells for $15 and appears to be capable of capturing minute text on documents or other items as well as other macro photography uses.

Visiting the details tab of the website offers a video with a brief demonstration on use and cleaning of the lens. A user guide is also available on the same page.

The site recommends that the lens be used on smart phones with 5 Megapixel or higher cameras.

The lens can also be used to turn any smart phone in to a high power magnifying glass to help people read small print.
