We has a banner

The stubby holders might be still to arrive but the banner is loud and proud.

Keep your eyes open for it at all the best events.

haha – now that I like.

As for being too cheap to be in the Yellow Pages… it is a ridiculously expensive exercise and dealing with Sensis Yellow Pages is the equivalent of bashing your head against a brick wall for a few weeks at a time.

I find bashing my head against a brick wall is actually less painful. It can actually become rather rhythmic and soothing over time.

And I’m 50/50 on the topic of ‘To URL or not to URL’. I’d probably be just as likely to look up a web-site as do a we search on a large name on a banner giving no further detail as to its nature.

Just trying to remember where I first heard about ‘RiotACT’. Probably from Loadedog (RIP, now Culturazi).

Maybe it can be like the cheapskates at Ultra Tune who are too tight to pay for Yellow Pages ads and so end their TVCs with “Find us under ‘U’ in the White Pages.”

RiotACT – A local website for news and views
Google it!

Yeah, I think that works well. Now, about that fugly Arial Black, haha.

A tagline like that would be fine – but to then not include the URL is silly. Without it the banner says “RiotACT” “We’re a website” “Now go find us!”.

That said, if someone were so inclined, Googling the term Riot ACT would lead them here pretty quickly.

I think a tagline like ‘A local website for news and views’ would be more use than the url.

true, all true.

Cameron Cameron 3:27 pm 25 Aug 08

And that you have a poor memory.

But at least you’d know RiotACT is a website.

Would the URL on the banner stop you from looking up the site?

no. I would forget the url before I was at my computer.

i vote against. Unless the banner was at a socialist event, there’s a 90% chance I’d google it.

Cameron Cameron 12:58 pm 25 Aug 08

heh – perhaps.

In any event, my feedback (and I’m not sure if you were soliciting any, John) is that Banner v2 should contain the website addy 🙂

Some of us are more easily excited than others it appears.

To expand ones knowledge?

Sure. Maybe it’s because I already know RA, but seeing a banner saying nothing but “RiotACT” wouldn’t exactly excite my curiosity.

but to go home and Google a banner you know zero about?

Reminds me of this article – http://www.rankforsales.com/news-ba/764-seo-sep-10-04.html

Your powers of deduction amaze me.

Ah, That Cameron.

Cameron Cameron 6:24 pm 24 Aug 08

My point is this – anyone who has no earthly idea what RiotACT is might see this banner somewhere and ponder its meaning – but to go home and Google a banner you know zero about? That’s very different from Googling a potential sporting club for your children.

In any event, I like the banner. I should.

Googling ‘riot act’ brings up this site as the first result, so I think the URL is redundant. Anyone who cares enough to want to find out more will happily Google.
