Our new hot commercial that even cable might not approve. A business opportunity for you.
Wednesday, September 19, 2007Today is the debut of Go Daddy Live! -- our weekly podcast that is broadcast on Wednesdays at 1 pm PST/4 pm EST. As the name suggests the show is broadcast live. Actually we've been doing this over two years now. The show first debuted as Radio Go Daddy, then the name was changed to Life On Line with Bob Parsons.
Third time's a charm.
Go Daddy Live! is going to be a mixed media broadcast. In addition to the normal audio feed, we plan to provide video filmed by the Go Daddy Live! crew. We changed the show's name as it is truly Go Daddy driven and will be featured on Go Daddy's new business community portal which will be called Go Daddy Connections. There is also a chat room that viewers of the live feed can visit. It's always well attended and the conversation there -- as you might imagine -- is brisk, sometimes brutal and always fun.
Go Daddy Connections is all about business.
Unlike other portals, Go Daddy Connections is all about business. It's designed to be a place where Go Daddy Customers (there are now over 4.3 million of you!) can meet, interact, exchange ideas and market to each other. We have been hard at work on Go Daddy Connections for more than a year. We expect to take Go Daddy Connections live sometime within the next month. Stay tuned for more on this exciting new opportunity.
Go Daddy Live does Sturgis!
Just for fun, here are two videos that appear on the Go Daddy Live website. The first video was taken by the Go Daddy Live staff during my recent visit to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. To see this video -- please click here.
Arizona loves Go Daddy!
The second video was prepared by the Arizona Corporate Excellence award committee. It was shown last week when Go Daddy received the ACE Award for being the Most Innovative privately held company in Arizona. The video contrasts yours truly and Warren Adelman - the Go Daddy President. To see this video -- please click here.
Our New Celebrity Spokesman.
Go Daddy Productions just finished shooting several new commercials with our new celebrity customer and spokesman - pro football player Chad Johnson. Because of our contract and the fact that we hired only Chad as our spokesman and not the football league he plays in or the team he plays for - I'm not allowed to mention either the league or the team. I can only say that the name of the football league is usually referred to by three letters that are not an abbreviation of the words "No Free Lunch" and that his team name sounds very close to the words "Since in natty bangles."
We are excited about working with Chad Johnson. He's everything that is Go Daddy. He's outspoken, edgy, at the top of his game and memorable. As a matter of fact, you can listen to me interview Chad on today's edition of Go Daddy Live! To see a rough cut of one of Chad's new commercials -- please click here.
A hot new Go Daddy Girl commercial!
While the Go Daddy Productions staff was creating new commercials, they did a quick "best of" the Go Daddy Girl - Candice Michelle - commercial. It's a touch on the hot side. I wonder....hmmmm....would we stand any chance of getting it approved even on cable? To see this work of art -- please click here.
Got an opinion? Tell me.
Please tell me -- with a post on this blog -- if you prefer our commercial with Chad Johnson or the The Go Daddy Girl commercial. Maybe you think we should do both types of commercials -- or neither? Also if you've got the energy, I'd like to know what you think about the Sturgis video.
Until next time.
