Thanks Matej. I think the only question I have is on timing — is the due date for copy the same as the creative due date (Feb. 19)?

Yes, these are scheduled to go out this week. Does that work for you?

Lizz, any chance we can move the due date to Friday given the short week?

Hey Matej - Winston needs to hand these off to Yahoo on Friday and we also need to get approvals from their team before hand-off. I worry about moving the due date to Friday because of that.  

But I will let Winston be the decider, since his team are the requestors and approvers.

Hey Winston,

Please review the above when you get a chance. 

There are strong options in each category, but in the interests of keeping this moving forward, it would be great if you could pick one or (at the most) two favorites from each group.

The next step from there would be to share them with Yahoo and get Matt to start laying them out so we could still deliver a set tomorrow.

In the case that there's more than one from each group, we'll start with one for now and then we can use the second pick to refresh them later.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks.

I think two in each category is important so we can test on each property.  +1 on the ones I liked best.  I think they're all great.  Nice.

Cool, cool! Can someone highlight the preferred lines in the doc so I can hand the copy lines off to Matt? 

Thanks!

Thanks, Winston.

If we're testing, it might be beneficial to try different messages, not just different wording. In general, they're all talking about speed, but in some cases we have options that are different.

In the Finance category, for example, we could sub in one of the following to go with one of the speed options:

• Get your for-profit news the non-profit way. | Download Firefox

• A free browser for the free market. | Get Firefox

And in the Mail group, we could try this one:

• Send. Receive. Choose independent. | Get Firefox

How would you feel about those?

I sent Matt the copy deck earlier, but it would be good to add it to the design bug as well. Winston has made his selections, we're just waiting on a couple of answers from comment 10.

Can you confirm that we don't need to design the lines for Yahoo Mail?

Good point.  On the mail we can try all since it's all text.  For finance, I prefer " A free browser for the free market. | Get Firefox"

I gravitated to speed because we're seeing those ads perform best (just got that data this morning).  But good to test some other directions on the contextual pieces too.

Thanks!
