Penny Offer Display Ads from HostGator

Key Takeaways

  • Notice how HostGator gets the penny offer across in three ways. Visually (the image of the penny), verbally (the wordage of "1 Penny") & numerically ("$0.01"). You want to ensure the core of your offer is very clear.
  • The job of the penny is to grab attention. Thus, why the shiny penny is used, the penny text is in yellow & captalized & the first zero is made big.
  • Make your goal to create long-term customers (customers for life). When you have a plan to capture customers for a long period of time & have them buy more from you overall, a low front-end offer like the penny offer, is a no-brainer.
