The Next Ooma Advertising Campaign

Post by UrbanVoyeur » Thu Feb 11, 2010 4:43 am

What do you think Ooma should do for its next advertising campaign?

Should they get a new spokesperson? Who?

My suggestion:
A Famous voices using Ooma campaign. Clint Eastwood, James Earl Jone (Darth Vader), Samuel L. Jackson, Placido Domingo, Stewy (Family Guy), Homer Simpson. The sillier and more campy the better. Especially Samuel Jackson.

My vote is for Ned Flanders. Good morals (exxcept when he asked Homer how to cut loose), sometimes makes bad business decisions (the Left Handed Store), difficult neighbors - just like the rest of us.

Stewie is evil incarnate - let's not go there!!

Ned Flanders, Clint Eastwood, or Sam Jackson sound OK to me. Probably should avoid Homer Simpson though. He's lovable enough but doesn't have the most "I am so smrt" points going for him :D

A year or so ago... I offered my creative talents to Ooma, but sadly, was ignored. Oh well...

In any event, I suggested that in order to get the Ooma name out, all that would be needed is 5-10 second spots with a face shot of a particularly vivacious women saying something like "Ooma... I love it!" followed by a display of the Ooma web site address. I still think this would be effective to attract potential customers to the site.

Now, this may be even a better approach even though it would require more air time:

I just can't help but think about how many it would take to spell out "OOMA." Anyone want to venture a guess?

I've learned a lot here... two months ago I didn't even know how to spell VOIP and now I are one.
