As a heterosexual man I love a good looking woman. Add a little makeup and a ton of photoshop and Danica Patrick could fit that category , but let me point something out Bob. In my opinion, Danica and the girls haven’t earned you one extra customer. In fact you may have lost a few. Despite the fact that most men DO think about boobs every hour of the day, I don’t need a pair of them staring at me every time I bid another $10 on one of your expiring domains that you earn so much money off of.
And why the gambling site layout? I feel like every time I’m on your site a poker game could break out at any time. Did I just buy a domain name or did I put $100 in my account to start a No Limit Hold Em game? Then there’s the promo for your video log that looks like an ad for a “Girl’s Half Your Age” porn movie. I’m not saying you’re into porn (obviously I might be with the previous reference) just that the layout of your registrar would suggest that you could lean that way. The older guy surrounded by photos of girls dressed in “Hooterish” clothing.
So again I ask this. Is it necessary? Do you think this image sells more domains, draws more attention, or make you stands out? Does it make you more memorable than if you were to end every commercial with “GOOOOOOOOOOOO Daddy ….Whoop Whoop Whoop? I think it’s kinda catchy and it wouldn’t offend my Mom. I recommended GoDaddy to my Mom to register a personalized email and she had to wait until she got home because she was afraid the site wasn’t safe for work. It would have been much better if she only had to turn down her volume because the site yells out “Goooooooooooooo Daddy…..Whoop Whoop Whoop” when you first log on.
In summary Bob, you’re site is great, easy to use, and has great customer service so give up the boobs. Have some fun with the site. Move towards smart comedy to promote and brand the site. Get away from the robot monotone semi sexual race car driver and the C list models and hire Jon Stewart or Dennis Miller to promote your wares. Or save your money and just go with the whoop whoop thing.
PS I am for hire if you want more of my ideas………………………I didn’t think so
