I'm still very limp in the excitement department whilst looking at this ad for the 2nd time. It seems very plain and boringly simple it's very crude and homemade looking. Grey colours and short desgins make for a 90's internet feel to this poor advert product. I long for some bright fast flash 5 ads with animation and music. I guess I'm just gonna have to wait for a decent ad to appear, I'll keep checking this site. CHeers Kings Bye Bye
I've had a OneTel account for two years that I use for occasional international calls. In all that time I've never run into any problems at all - the service has always been reliable, the billing has always been accurate, the online facility for viewing your bills and unbilled calls is useful, and the information available on their web site is useful. One quibble: you need to have cookies enabled to view your bills online; otherwise, it doesn't work and doesn't say why. But the call rates are good.
I've seen TV ads for One Tel and they clearly state some of the great savings on international calls, likewise with the banner ads. However, upon reaching the site I found it extremely hard to actually find out what was going on and how to register, it's worth joining for the great rates but it may take your hours to get propery connected. My advise is, don't bother, unless you have a few hours to spare. Maybe try another service, you also have to pay a monthly fee and itemised billing is not standard, you must may a few pound extra. Don't do it!
The green is a good colour; although it flashes quickly this encourages you to look at it and read what it says. Their promise of cheaper calls for internet and mobile as well as internationally opens the door to a wider customer base. Everyone wants cheaper household and office bills and I think One Tel will capture a lot of discount divas and super savers with this particular advertisement. I think it appeals to people in my age group and younger, who are probably the ones who most need to find a way to surf and talk a bit cheaper!
The OneTel communications advert is very clear and (unuasually!) grabbed my attention by being slightly different to the usual flashing banners in that it flashes and scrolls upwards. Anyway, I thought it was clever so I gave it a click and expected to get some information about cheaper telephone calls. Especially the overseas calls appealed to me as I have a friend in Australia and it regularly costs me a fortune to contact him. But instead I got a how would you like to register box flashing at me. Not good as it immediately put me off the idea. I dont like being asked to sign up straight away. Take Note! I would have preferred a more informative home page first and then to have made my own decision to sign up. Therefore I didn't sign up with OneTel. Shows how advertising doesn't always work, doesn't it?? Anyway, that's my opinion on the subject. Bye
the One Tel banner advert is only easy to spot because of its hideously unattractive green colour. This is a shade that reminds you of mushy peas, or snot, or pus. Its an evil colour and associated with illness. It hardly makes me want to sign up for this company. The advert itself is very simple "cheap National Calls" "Cheap International calls" but they remain very close lipped on exactly how cheap. Perhaps their deals aren't that good? I don't know as I don't use the service. Having looked at this banner it is not a service that I would consider using. The advertising puts me off rather than encourages me to user the product perhaps that is the worst kind of failure.
I think for a company the size of Onetel, the look of the banner is too amateur and needs some jazzing up. Although the loading time is good - and that is the best thing a banner can have, mine downloaded in under a second. A fun, cartoony look would be much better and would attract people more. The look of the banner is far too corporate and plain, boring etc. and does not really entice you to click it. Featuring call prices would be a **great** step, and something badly missing at the moment, only real prices will encourage people.
I've been an active One-tel user for some time now. If you are with BT and pay the standard line rental you are absolutely mad! Save yourself a fortune- There really is nothing to lose as One-tel only bill you for calls you make through them! They have a fixed local and national rate which means that call costs anywhere in the country are the same low price. Tip: Use One-tel's 0800 number- tell BT you want to join their "Light user scheme"!! and save, save, save. There are many service providers that offer similar 'routing' but I know of none this cheap. Forget the mobile calls though- this is where One-tel cut their losses- now they are expensive here. One-tel also bill directly on the internet, and your unbilled calls can be assessed on the web. With the exception of being 'ripped off' for mobile call costs, I have had no problems. If you make international calls take a look at the rates and compare them. You could do a lot worse!
I find the One Tel banner neat and effective with a simple design, an effective animation and a good hook in the promise of money off. In such a competitive area as telecommunications it must be increasingly difficult to "hook" browsing users attention. The most difficult part for such an advertiser must be measuring impact if the customer doesn`t click the banner. If the user only sees the banner they may fail to register interest but may be softened up for the future due to repeated exposure to the brand name. This repetition is of course what has made many household names. One tel are doing exactly the right thing to reinforce their brand identity. This is of course a long game to play. Good luck to them and may they have many hits!
Yes you certainly will, if you can stop singing those damn catchy advertising tunes. As with the tv commercial, the banners are very prominent in your mind. They do however somehow lack diversity, not daring to venture past an informative, but bland statement of figures. They could be improved by simplified facts and a more eyecatching design. On the whole though, they are going the right way. People might however be deterred by the very thing which one.tel is counting on - the catchyness of its advertising might dissuade people from what is a very good service. After the third night of insomnia while the tune reverberates around your head, you might not look to kindly to the service!
I'm sorry but my opinion is that all banner ad's are a pain.The internet is supposed to connect computers from all over the world for entertainment,education,leisure,pleasure etc.If we all want to see adverts we can see them on TV.It's time something was done to stop them altogether, so we can all get back to doing what we want to do on the net,and at the proper speed.Instead we have to put up with all the innane drivel that ad banners bring with them. If the only way companies can survive on the net is by placing trash on our screens then they should'nt be on the net at all.
i dont like this banner its to green for my likeing then every think on dooyoo is green we need more colour on this site some nice purple and reds would be nice, also and what that stone the crows bit? wont we get reported to the RSPCA? also i dont like banners that tell you what to do like click here to regesiter, that really bugs me so i dont like it i also hate banners that look like a popup window or pretend to have pop down links and places to type in those are my pet hates on the net.
I have used onetel for a while and they have good services/products, But... I hate this banner, I hate that goofy wee, greasy, fella and I hate those brass colours What were onetel thinking of when they developed this concept! It genuinely makes me grit my teeth. Okay it is Eyecatching But... Ugly It looks like something a spotty teenager dreamt up and does not instill great confidence in me on the professionalism of Onetel, or their ability to satisfy customers. Which is a shame because I know they have good rates and are worth the click.
A nice clear banner with a good look. however it doesnt give many details (which is hard to do on a banner anyway). In these cases it is best to give no details and make people visit the site out of curiosity, or link the banners to a tv campaign. i wouldnt visit their site on the strength of that banner. Neither would i use their service though. i doubt anyone would click on this banner. They should work on a method of attracting their target audience. offer soemthing free. Write FREE in big letters . People click on FREE.
The banner is in green which blends perfectly into the dooyoo site. I wouldn't have noticed it if I hadn't wanted to win a Playstation2 by entering my opinion. The information on the banner would look very attractive to anyone who would call someone in Australia. Unfortunately, I know no one in Australia. I do have friends in America so pursued with clicking the banner to find out if I could make transatlantic calls cheaply. On entering the site I was blinded by a flashing sign reading "£2 CALL CREDIT" which is about all you can read - as soon as you try to concentrate on the details your attention is drawn away again. This is as close as I got to subscribing to One.Tel!
