    Hey guys,
    While I was reading auto content cash sales page, at hxxp:// www. au*tocont*entcash . com

    I looked at the order button, and on it... I found some words such as "truth", "heart", and other words, visible, but not at a first glance.

    So my question was... Is this guy using subliminal?

    Is this going to be a new beginning in internet marketing?

    We'll see...

    What do you think?

    There's also other meaningless words like "since", so I think it's just to make the button less plain and generic.

    Interesting that you caught that. I've never seen/noticed anyone doing that with order buttons :O

    Spiritually speaking, "truth" and "heart" are two of most powerful forces in the world. Wouldn't be surprised if that was done intentionally to increase sales.

    I feel like I'm looking at a Magic Eye.

    "I don't see it."

    Yeah I noticed that too... I found that strange, I thought it was "sincere" but no it's actually written since...

    Yeah that's the first effect I get, and that proves the effectiveness of the design. The reflective layer on top gives the illusion that the button kinda shines, and maybe our brain reproduces the effects of what happen in reality!
    Dawn... :cool:

    It could simply be an effect he uses on his website. Look at the background, it uses the same thing but hardly what I would call subliminal. It is an interesting effect.

    Damn. Even after an explanation, I still can't see it.

    Must be a pretty sweet subliminal message. :D

    I think you have hit the nail on the head! There is definately a subliminal message on that button.

    Im going to use it for my sites now! Even for my CPA offers and gateway's!

    It's the same text that is on the website background, though the website background is much easier to read.

    Wow. Yeah, that would definitely not be accidental.

    Nice catch!
