My brother is now an Ooma user. His number port from Vonage came through today. He said it's working just fine.

Now to just get my mom set up with the one she has (it's still in the box!).

Congratulations ooma! My latest issue of "Costco Connection" featured ooma as a product that will be offered in February. Name recognition may be a problem, but perhaps you could have reps handing out fliers each weekend, when traffic is highest. Good marketing choice!

Great! I'll have to check that out.

Also, we are currently in this week's nation-wide Best Buy Circular (page 23). Attached is a scan.

baca008,

Has said what I wanted to say except he/she left out the part that ooma's lack of advertisement is making me nervous.

The only reason I know of and now have ooma is I was reading a post by an irate MagicJack user that was say "that's it" even if the initial out lay is higher he was shifting to ooma.

Needless to say I sat here going what the hell is an ooma?

Please, I don't think I have ever asked a company to advertise but for the length of time and the quality of service that I have experience in my very short time with ooma - Please don't go bust because no one has heard of you.

Regards

ooma used to advertise in the SF Bay Area on a major Sports oriented radio station (KNBR), which is how i heard about the product. i don't think i've heard those ads for a couple of months.

so - how are people hearing about ooma?
word of mouth? Friend/family/co-worker?

i brought up ooma today in a discussion with a coworker who has magic-jack and he says he never heard of it...

I heard of ooma when I was researching Magic Jack. Someone wrote a review that stated ooma was better. I googled ooma and the rest is history! Thanks Magic Jack!

This reminded me of a newsletter we sent out a year ago :)

Can OOMA get on the Today show? News events? How about a quick video which 'auto runs' if someone gets to your home page? It only needs to be 10-15 seconds. Show the hub. Show plug it in. Hear OOMA dial tone. Show someone tearing up their phone bill.

Where's marketing???


Naw... all you need is a series of five second spots on the Speed Channel with some exotic number saying one word: "ooooma" then a quick flash to the web site url.
Or... four words: "ooooma, I love it" then flash to the url. Testing something like this in selected market areas would be relatively easy and inexpensive.

O.K., so every guy in the world doesn't watch the Speed Channel. Try something similar as a web based ad.

Might consider a catchy phrase that is tagged to the ooma name; e.g. "ooma... set yourself free" or "ooma, freedom at last." I'm not so sure that "The amazing disappearing phone bill" has the same "ring" or for that matter, was intended to be a catchy phrase.
