Why is the website on the "Education Connection" commercials always different?

Asked by buckyboy28 (4938points) April 1st, 2010

Every time I see one of the commercials, the website is different. For example I have seen both, www.72edconnect.com and www.edconnectnow.com (in addition to numerous others).

It could be their way of tracking ad success and traffic generated.

@Dog I was thinking that, but wouldn’t that be pretty pricy?

Domain names are as cheap as $5.00 US/yr

Actually hosting the files, paying for the bandwidth is more, but you can point infinite domains to the same hosted files.

I always thought it was an affiliate program… you pay to run a late night commercial, which they’ve already produced and add your website to the bottom. For everyone who signs up they pay you $xx.

Could be wrong, other companies do this and the hook is “we give you all the advertising materials”... sometimes they even set up the website for you.
