Can anyone suggest a slogan or 'tag line' for my web decal?

I'm going to be ordering a web decal to put on my car to advertise my business. I plan on having a couple "eye-catching" words that could spark curiosity. The company will offer Internet Marketing solutions for the Real Estate industry. I plan on having the keywords in a larger font above the url to draw attention.

I'm coming up with such cheesy stuff right now. Anyone have any good "one liners" I can use?

That's a good one but I think I've seen that before. I need to come up with something original.

An advertising agency in Austin, Texas bought a billboard a few years back that said, "Herbert Hoover was the 31st President of the United States." And then below that it gave a URL.

They wanted to track how many people actually drove home, entered in the URL and looked at the site.

Apparently, lots of people did.

I've always wanted try that - put a useless but interesting fact next to a URL to draw traffic - but I've never had the opportunity.

If you can find a brief but weirdly interesting fact, that might draw attention. ;) However, it might not draw the kind of attention you're looking for from your target market. But maybe you can make it appropriate to your market - so that RE folks would be interested in it? Hmm. It'd take some thought, though.

How about "over 100 people a day look at this decal for no apparent reason" ;)

Or, "we like curious people"

Keywords are keywords and so is the relevancy attached to them.

I mean, how many time have you clicked on something that was in your search term, which had absolutely nothing to do with the search term used?

I'd suggest sticking very close to the theme of you site.

As for all those who viewed the Presidental ad, one has to ask two questions:

  • Were those visitors sticky?

  • How many came back?

    I would think, if the site were relevant to the visitor, that they would return, regardless of what got them there in the first place.

    Unfortunately, that wasn't the goal of the experiment so those data aren't available. :(

    I like to go with just the domain on like a bumpersticker (with the WWW because people respond to that) like so

    WWW.YOURDOMAINNAME.COM

    But if the domain doesnt relate well to the actual business I can see the need for keywords.

    How about-

    (two worder)

    SWEET HOME

    (three worder)

    HOME SWEET HOME

    (most everyone loves to be home)

    I hope you have a really short domain name. Have you ever tried to remember one long enough to type it in? It will help if your tag line in some way mirrors the URI.

    Should spark curiosity visits, particularly from your intended clients.

    "I moved here..."

    "For Sale: Sunshine"

    "Ted Kaczynski never lived here:"

    "Live Rent-Free: Buy it!"

    "Landlords Suck!" (Pardon the language)

    "Make your neighbors jealous: MOVE!"

    "Bigger Closets"

    "Got money?" (Got Milk?)

    ooops... I just realized that this is for the Real Estate industry:

    "Got 8%?" (Got milk?, again)

    "Open house: 24/7"

    "Mansions 'R' Us"

    "Yahooome!"

    "The soft sell: #1 on Google"

    "It looked good in the paper!"

    "First is first"

    "MLS = My Listings Sell"

    "MLS:PVT VW"

    "Make friends (with appraisers)"

    Ok...I'm all done.

    You are going to be targetting business owners and managers, so I would be inclined to target the financial gain they would receive over a witty tagline.

    Do a search for "real estate + local area" and have your add as...

    Real Estate Local Area - 2.5 million competitors (insert Google results returned).
    www.example.com
    How would you like to be number 1?

    A variation on this would be to check Adwords and subsitute the competitors value for number of searches (*cough* potential investors).
