Shine Advertising Co. Named 'Agency of Record' for GoDaddy.com

Madison Shop Bests Agencies From N.Y. & L.A.

MADISON, WI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2006 -- GoDaddy.com®, the #1 registrar of domain names worldwide, has named Shine Advertising Co. as advertising agency of record, following a two-month review that included Shine and shops from both New York and Los Angeles. Shine will be responsible for strategic planning, traditional advertising, Web development, and viral marketing. Annual spending was not disclosed.

"We wanted to team up with an agency that understands the Go Daddy® mentality and our way of doing business," said Bob Parsons, CEO and founder of GoDaddy.com. "Shine got us from the word 'go,' and brought bold, fresh new ideas to our brand, which has always been known for being nothing but bold and fresh."

Initial work from Shine will include new television spots for Super Bowl® XLI, including the "extended uncut Internet-only versions" for which Go Daddy has gained notoriety in the past few years. In addition, new interactive components are being prepared to work in concert with the new Super Bowl® creative. Following in the Go Daddy tradition, the campaign is expected to be fun, sexy, and slightly inappropriate -- in other words, 'GoDaddy-esque.'"

"It's extremely exciting to be able to work on such an outstanding brand," said Curt Hanke, co-founder and account director at Shine. "As a rapidly growing agency, we're always looking for brands and, more importantly, marketers who believe in the power of their brand and are looking for an agency to help them unleash its true potential. Go Daddy exemplifies a brand that 'gets it,' and is willing to innovate and take risks to help fuel the growth of their brand, and in turn, their business."
