    Just replying a private message in my account when i saw this banner below.
    I knew that images of young attractive woman always help to sell your stuff, but a cat with bread on his face and green lasers out of his eyes ... is this the new trend for 2014??

    The thing is, the crappier the work done on the signature, the higher converting it is. People are all like "What the hell", so they click it. You following?

    It's working because subconsciously, the cat is telling the viewer that they too can have a long green penis. And with this penis, they can slap it across that girls face, and she will be their willing sexual partner. BUT... they have to click that link across from her first, you know, for more info.

    Sex is a powerful motivator when triggered subconsciously. The cat is a new twist, post-lolcat era, that appeals to those familiar with funny internet memes. But the subliminal phallic symbol is a classic technique that always works. A perfect combination, if you ask me.

    That's the real explanation:

    I think I should try promoting some CPA offers because I am also good at creating such crappy banners.

    This is advertising 101, far from a new 2014 trend.

    Ugly, annoying (and weird looking) banner ads will always work, is a way of grabbing attention.

    Yeah, ugly web design can work as well. This is the grandaddy of them all, as far as I know

    As long as it catches your attention it did its work, so the design doesn't really matter

    @OP Crappy banner works better. It has drawn your attention and forced you to open a thread about it. So think, how effective it is :D

    Off course it's not a 2014 trend ... just trying some sarcasm.

    I'm sure bad and crappy design work on some type of people. Subliminal messages are very strong! It got my attention and by posting it helped the owner on the way ... damn lol
