According to my journalism teachers (way back when) leading with questions let's your audience too easily answer "no" in their minds and subsequently tune out.  I always thought that effect was a little overstated, but still it's real.

Plus, questions aren't really direct or "oomphy," among other things.

How about replacing those first three lines with something like this:

"The dollars in your wallet are losing their value every day. 
Don't let inflation and central banking policies erode the value of your hard earned money."

Great idea! Very generous, though I'm hopeful your investment will have generational returns by helping Bitcoin go mainstream.

One question: is it accurate to say Bitcoin is free from inflation forever, given that there are still millions of BTC to be mined?

It is free from arbitrary or unknown inflation forever. That is, if you define "Bitcoin" as the current set of rules in place, everyone will always know what the inflation rate is at any time. This allows entrepreneurs and investors to accurately take into effect the cost of inflation when determining profitability.

Well, there's possibly room for both: "Are you sick of the government using your money to bail out Wall Street? Then take back control with Bitcoin!" etc.

You really need to contact Justmoon.

He has said that there is BTC left over from the animated movie bounty that can go towards stuff like this (can't find where anymore, this forum is becoming unworkably large) ... working in with weusecoins.com will make it smoother experience for the newcomers, i.e. direct them there to watch the weusecoins clip on youtube.

I agree, I think that's a fantastic idea. Maybe they could get like, Neal Patrick Harris to read the recorded advertisement.

Well if it's going to push weusecoins, we could use the same guy who narrated that.

Another idea, more conversational:

Cash register sounds and commotion
CLERK: That's $428.57, please.
CUSTOMER: Can you believe what groceries cost these days?
FRIEND: Yeah, it's crazy, isn't it? And it's only getting worse!
CUSTOMER: Inflation. What can you do?
FRIEND: Well, you could use Bitcoin instead.
CUSTOMER: Bitcoin? What's that?
FRIEND: Bitcoin is a new worldwide digital currency. It's free to use and accept.
CUSTOMER: Free!?
FRIEND: Yes, free! No one owns Bitcoin, so there's no one to charge you for it. And best of all, bitcoins actually gain value over time!
CUSTOMER: So prices in Bitcoin will go down over time instead of up?
FRIEND: I started using bitcoins when they were worth only fifty cents each---now they're worth over three dollars!
CUSTOMER: Wow, maybe I will start using them! Thanks!
FRIEND: No problem! To learn more, visit weusecoins.com.

I've just asked them to start the following ad:


Are you tired of watching the value of the dollar plummet?
Are you tired of banks charging you fees?
Do you want to take back control of your own money?
Then take a look at Bitcoin!
Bitcoin is the world's first decentralized, anonymous internet currency, and is gaining popularity every day.
It's free to use, free to accept, and free from inflation---forever!
You can use bitcoins anywhere in the world, and their value will only grow with time.
To learn more, visit weusecoins.org.  That’s weusecoins.org


We can still change it at any time in the future.
We also need to come up with a 30 second recorded ad.

I will post the audio of the first ad once it runs.

Found it ... justmoon says here that they may have funds for future projects

http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=6402.msg93486#msg93486

http://www.weusecoins.com/fund.php

"Currently most of the funds are earmarked for making more videos, however we are always looking for other opportunities where a few coins can go a long way towards promoting Bitcoin. If you have any ideas, send us an email!"

They did a great job on the animated movie.

It's free to use,

Sometimes false.

True.

and free from inflation---forever!
Wildly false.  Do not use this statement!

You can use bitcoins anywhere in the world,
Only true if you have Internet access anywhere in the world.
Quote
and their value will only grow with time.
Probably false.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Very true.

Also, the standard in the call to action bit is to say it three times in a slightly different way each time.

Possibly an example of how to do a radio campaign

One thing has to change in the ad right now:

It's weusecoins.com, not .org

My mistake, sorry!
