Bitcoin.com ad - We would love to hear more ideas and feedback!

Mon Feb 15, 2016 5:09 am

Hi Everyone,

We are going to have a Bitcoin.com ad in a magazine. (Not Bitcoin related magazine)

We wanted to keep it simple but engaging so we thought the best idea to get peoples attention is to say how much they can save on Amazon and Starbucks.

We came up with the below ad but we certainly feel that there is some more room for improvements.

We would love to hear your feedbacks and ideas.

Thanks so much

What about keeping it real simpel:

Amazon logo
-25% off everything

Starbucks logo
-20% off everything

Learn how:
Bitcoin.com

I'd remove the background - it distracts and adds nothing to the message.

Maybe add something along the lines of "any other purchases: no transaction costs and instant" so people who see it don't just think you can only use btc for starbucks and amazon.

But yeah, the black color on grey background isn't that appealing. Maybe add some more orange colors to it to match the B and make it more visible.

the design has to change. 2-3 simple sentences. an easy message. (Digital Gold slogan?)

what kind of magazine is it? that would make a difference too.

It is going in a magazine geared toward wealthy people who would be interested in obtaining citizenship by investment, or diversifying their assets into multiple political jurisdictions.

It's my friend's magazine and he had two extra slots he said we can put our ads in for free.
One is going to Purse.io, the other is going to Bitcoin.com

That is awesome! What's the time limit on this? I'm sure we will come to a consensus with what looks best for everyone. ;)

Can't wait to welcome the flood of BTCitcoin beginners asking away. :)

Thanks everyone for your feedback.
Our aim is to stick to our style guide that we created. It will be available to download from our press page from tomorrow.

Thus we would like to use our current design assets.
Once we can provide you with that we would love to see your versions of the ad.

that is not bad in my view.

i find the term "open your wallet" a bit misleading. wouldnt it be better if we say "open a wallet"?


- bitcoins or bitcoin? i would stick with singular.

Much better!

I don't think the contrast between the orange and the grey background is strong enough. You could consider making an orange background (ie an orange "bar" with 0-5% transparency and put bold white letters in there as a contrast.

My thoughts though - I have to read the ad to see the huge discounts. Is that not what you want to advertise with?

What about the slogan:
Bitcoin.com
Secure Digital Cash for the 21st Century

Bitcoin.com
The future of money has arrived

Although I agree bitcoin will change the way you view the world, many people do not want their views challenged. Better lure them in with something they are curious about - and then expose them to non-MSM truths.

Amazon, Starbucks - can you afford not to be involved in Bitcoin?

Maybe it should say "buy Bitcoins and be your own bank" or something like that

This is great, but there is much more space on the ad from what you provided, so I would certainly make the font a lot bigger if possible. Not overpowering but it's very small relative to the space that you have.
