Creative Urinal Marketing From NamesCon


urinal soccer

The Domainers Choice Awards were held last weekend in Dana Point, California, and I wasn’t able to make it because of a wedding in New York. I was checking out some of the event photos, and I want to share a photo that Bill Hartzer posted on Flickr.

As you can see, NamesCon had a creative marketing tactic in the men’s restroom. Because of the World Cup that is taking place in Brazil, NamesCon outfitted the urinals with a mini soccer ball and goal, Β and I suppose the objective of the urinal soccer game is pretty obvious. The “grass” was branded with the NamesCon logo.

I don’t know if they did something similar in the ladies room, but I did not see any photos of the ladies room in Bill’s photo stream.

I think this is a great attention grabber, and it’s also nice to see NamesCon sponsor a domain industry event.

  1. Hey Elliot! Thank you for posting this. No, We didn’t have anything remotely similar placed in the womens room BUT next year we are hoping to do something creative in that manner.

    • “It should have the Belgium colors on it”

      I’ll bet if you ask Namescon, they’d be more than happy to add your DG logo.

    • This is clearly one of those new TLD (toilet level domain) promotions

      The message may be :
      “Get Pissed at Namescon”
      “Namescon is Golden”
      “Dribble your balls on over to namescon”
