Acquisio – I hate Doing This Shit – FSF

by Jeremy Schoemaker on August 30, 2007 · 90 comments


I wore this Acquisio shirt to the Google Dance and working out last Monday and I NEVER got nearly as many looks and inquiries as to where I got it. At the Google Dance in San Jose at least 20 people asked me if I had anymore shirts. I tried to explain to them that it wasn’t mine and I just asked them for one at the conference and they told me they would only give me one if I wore it to the Google Dance. So HUGE success on the shirt guys!!

Now What does Acquisio do?

Well from one of there employees sites:

We were offering ad agencies a solution for PPC management and the monthly reporting to clients… because we know they hate doing that shit manually. To make this perfectly clear, we decided to give out t-shirts to help people communicate this frustration, while offering them the solution.

I was playing with the software and I think I might give it a test run. We currently manage about 20 MSN Adcenter, 3 Yahoo and about 8 Google Adwords accounts so this might come in handy for us. I will report more later as we jump back into pay per click.

Thanks for the shirt guys!

Shock value is decent. Pretty appropriate to wear while you’re working out though.


Dude…your t-shirt rocks!! I can just imagine the look on peoples faces…lol.

3 Linden Man

the shirt is actually catchy.

4 Click Input

Cool, back into PPC. I love hearing you talk about that stuff.

Secondly, kick ass slogan.

Unless you own a farm, do you really want your business associated with “SHIT”

8 Adwords Accounts? Assuming it’s via My Client Client Center, are you able to manage multiple Adwords accounts for yourself or your company? Or are they for other people/companies? If you’re able to swing multiple accounts for yourself, how can we hook that up:)

8 Jonathan Volk

Hahaha. Great marketing. :D I like that a lot.

9 Lukas

Very nice shirt! It rocks!

10 Theo

11 lyricsreg

I think that if people wanted to communicate their frustration, they would do more than wearing a t-shirt :)

12 lyricsreg

even if you owned a farm … :)

13 GettyCash

14 Gecko Tales

*L* I saw that shirt in one of the pictures you posted in your album…. Some of the best shirts are ones that tell it like it is!

18 Paul Bradish

Yeah – I would have looked twice that’s for sure. The Shock Value is great but the link below the text is so small :).

19 jim

47 Theo

The url is the tasteful part.

48 Gecko Tales

with the success and buzz this shirt has gotten, you would think selling them online at cost for branding purposes would be a good idea.
