15 possible advertising slogans for the new Oklahoman.com

In effort to combat lagging revenues and fewer print subscribers, The Oklahoman has launched a new premium website called Oklahoman.com. It will basically offer all the content you get at NewsOK.com for free, but will be designed and updated in a more traditional, “day by day,” chronological format. Basically, it’s a slow, simple website for people who can’t handle the hustle and bustle of a 24-hour news cycle…like your grandpa or a woman named Rose.

From NewsOK:

The Oklahoman has a new website, launching Oklahoman.com as a premium site for its current and future subscribers…

“It’s a premium reading experience,” said Chris Reen, president of OPUBCO Communications Group and publisher of The Oklahoman.

“We carefully designed it for our print and digital subscribers who like the way The Oklahoman is organized every day,” he said.

The website features day-by-day navigation, allowing a reader to see the stories of the day packaged together by familiar sections. Updated breaking news articles throughout the day are showcased separately on a “Live” page.

Current subscribers to The Oklahoman have free access to Oklahoman.com. Print subscriptions start at $12 per month. Nonsubscribers may purchase access to the site as part of a complete digital suite for $15 per month or as a single-product purchase for $9.99 per month.

Let me see. $9.99 to read the same news stories that I can basically read for free over at NewsOK?  Thanks, but I think I’ll pass. That is a worse deal than NetFlix. Good luck in the future.

I do kind of feel sorry for the person in the OPUBCO marketing department who got stuck with this product. That’s a no-win situation. You’d have better luck winning a land war in Asia or giving away free Obama bumper stickers at a gun show than you would making Oklahoman.com a success. Since that’s the case, we decided to come up with a list of possible ad slogans for the premium website.

Here are they are:

This female teacher had sex with a 17-year-old

I hope you’re fully recovered from Saturday’s shenanigans and your pee no longer has a greenish tint to it. Allegedly, there was a girl who looked a lot like me, who was seen skipping around the Center of the Universe, downing car bombs at the Dust Bowl, and two-stepping to the cover band at Woody’s. That person was definitely not me. Well, unless you look like Jon Hamm and want to take that said person out to dinner. In that case, holla atchyo girl.

This is my first year without a spring break, but last weekend’s festivities certainly softened the blow. My last five years’ worth of trips to Panama City were memorable indeed, but there comes a time when one has to let go. I’ve traded in the trash can punch for vodka clubs, Sunday Fundays for Netflix marathons, my party shades for real Ray Bans, and the frat brothers for uh, graduated frat brethren. Unfortunately, my sentiments of growing up and moving on aren’t always reflected in other young professionals living in the greater Tulsa area. Today, I’d like to introduce you to Erin Queen. She’s a 27-year-old English teacher from Sand Springs who may or may not have been caught raping one of her students.
