But they just dont work very well- You know, I listened to Vegas Vince interview Steven; and he made a comment about some guy getting all excited over 13 thousand visits to a Micheal Jackson page.
Only he didnt make any money!
I'm sure the advice that flooded into him was something along the lines of an overhyped, overpriced, gimmick to sale t-shirts or some crap like that.
People you dont HAVE to be so bloody obvious with your deceptions. Yes, tried and true tactics work. But you only need to START there, at that point you need to develop some of your own tactics.
I'll tell you something that will REALLY freak alot of you guys out. I drive about 900 leads through my (and a few other) CPA networks every month.
Did you know 60% of those (new)leads routinely join my list, (or at least, the websites mailing program) and continue to provide me with revenue over a period over months-and sometimes years?
My customers dont hate me; I provide a service to them. I sometimes buildup communitys around my marketing, and I certainly dont "Hit them over the head" with a bunch of screaming headlines and overhyped promises.
Think about TV Commercials folks; Are they anywhere near as silly today as 10 years ago? While some might still make bold, crazy promises most focus on entertaining and capturing a viewers attention.
People can keep doing things as they please; But heed my warning- In the next 5-10 years the web at large will get savvy to the sleezeball tactics I see so often; and it wont matter if google lets you run "Google Cash" in adwords or not-The conversions simply wont be there.
