    '...Marketing is my thing. I love clever marketing.

    This just popped up and I hadn't seen it before. Sure is an attention-grabber, although I think the design could have been better'. It links to here:

    Ok, what's with putting your name in the thread titles? I hope this annoying habit or OCD symptom will pass.

    The magician can I have a request? I'm very much into creative marketing as well, because I sell tangible niche products (I hate ebooks and courses, always have, and probably always will), and was wondering if you can create a thread, of all your collection of marketing materials (blog posts, internet threads, download links, etc).

    A bonus would be sharing your own marketing experiences, but we know how busy you are, so if you can't spare the time to do any of the above, it's all good!

    This image is just a knock off of the oldschool "You have won $1,000,000 dollars, click here!" And clicking it brings them to a smilies website thingy. You see them all the time, usually right at the bottom of a site. Butt ugly, but sure is attention grabbing. You can't miss it, but the savvy ones would hate to click on it.

    The other old school, effective-for-a-while technique is to put a minimize, restore and close button at the top right of the banner, and a border to mimic a windows popup. Lots of Grannies fell prey to that tactic, a long long time ago, from a far away galaxy.
