hi everyone
i am about to place an advertisement in our local newspaper to advertise nails for valentines ..i think i need the advert to have 'male' appeal.(hopefully they will buy gift vouchers for their partner:biggrin: )
Bearing in mind that i am welsh and that subtle hints don't normally work on welsh men (not on the ones i know anyway;) ) how would you word an ad ?
my husband thought of something along the line of..
If you can't afford to put a diamond on her finger put beautiful nails on them instead !!!:lol:
all ideas greatfully received ..deadline to get the ad in is monday morning
kindest regards
debbie:biggrin:

Hi Debbie

Just my opinion but I don't think men would like that - they don't like to think/admit they can't afford things for their ladies!
Great idea but maybe say something like 'the alternative to putting a ring on her finger' or 'if you have already put a ring on her finger' instead the words 'can't afford' (purely psychological) - just a thought. :D

Hi Debbie,

How about putting a picture of a hand with extensions on it and saying something like 'Treat your partner to fantastic nails, becuase every girl should feel beautiful on Valentines day' ... or you could go for something cheekier like 'want to feel nails like this runing down your back on Valentines day...' :twisted:

when you do finish your advert make sure to take it to all your local barbers & car shops (places blokes visit) and ask if they will put a copy of your add in their window which will help you to hit your target market!

Lou.

This is just an idea.... I know a technician/beauty therapist that takes the liberty of phoning the clients husband a couple of weeks before Valentines Day and does the old sales patter on him and says that if he's stuck for ideas she could help him out by offering either nail related products or a particular service all done up in a lovely package for him to collect at his convenience.

Apparently the clients are well pleased and it has all been done secretly. Who better to offer this service,as the therapist knows the client's likes and dislikes by this time. All the hubby/partner has to do is pay... it comes wrapped up with a big red bow and covered in confetti hearts! How lovely is that. :D

I love what your hubbie is trying to say .... just not how he says it :eek:
You could always play around with this slogan and come up with something a little classier!
Say if you do Creative for instance, you could say...

Every girl deserves something beautiful on her fingers this Valentines day! ........
Creative Forever French nail extensions,

Call Debbienailz , tel: **** for an appointment'

Im sure you'll get what you're after if you keep at it ... good luck!
