I get a number of press releases hitting my inbox on a daily basis, and when I read the one that prompted this post, I emailed the PR chap back with a simple question – ‘is the for real?!?’. After being ensured it was indeed real, I thought I’d share this incredible insight with you…

Crotches = Clicks!!!

Yup that’s right, Betabrand, an online clothes retailer has discovered that  Newsfeed ads on Facebook that featured a close-up of a man’s pantal region achieved 30% more clicks and 20% more conversions than those that did not. Does that stat grab you by the short and curlies? Here’s more:

– 64% more engagement

– 28k free site visits from Facebook shares

– 60% more email sign-ups from site forms

Some impressive analytics at work there!
