Need your opinion of CoexLinks ads

I am considering running a few banner ads.  Here are a few quick ones... I wondered if any of them speak to you or if they leave you more confused then before.  For those who don't know about our CoexLinks product, the goal is to help people who may have to deal with Notes/Domino applications and some mix of Outlook/Exchange mail (even for a single division due to an acquisition, for example), and who have workflow applications or other use of doclinks that don't work well now.  CoexLinks seamless converts doclinks to usable links or NDLs that will work in Outlook, and it doesn't require any programming.  It is just a plug in to the Domino server.

Any thoughts or opinions on these choices?  Do I need to keep working, or should I use one of these?

You might consider looking for a different font. MS Comic is typically not associated with high quality, high professional work/products... and you don't want to undersell Coex.

The equation in #3 is nice, however you need to look for a different separator (a : ?) between CoexLinks and Notes doclinks. Or write it

Notes doclins + Genii CoexLinks = Outlook doclinks - hassle.

First one is the best. The 3rd could be misread ... " - hassle" is not how I would want an ad to end. You don't want 'hassle' to be the final thought ...possibly the association one ends up with after reading a blurb about Genii.

I think #1 is the easiest to understand, and the graphics are simple.

I would like to see a combo of 1 and 2. Keep the Notes icon, but add a doclink to number one. Also change out the Comic font and consider something like the new Genii one. And also, why not use a current Outlook 2003 icon?...It look a bit nicer.

YES! Number 4 is cool. Attractive, easy to understand ... I like it.

I'm a fan of #4. Just by looking at the pictures, it's easily inferred that Notes, DocLinks and Outlook are all involved. I also prefer this Outlook icon.

In addition, the phase at the bottom is a strong, yet simple statement. CoexLinks: Definition of what it will do for you

#4 for me too Ben

Most professional looking and (in my mind) explains the product best
