I agree with both points of view in this thread...

CPV is based on interrupting the visitor, and sometimes the more annoying the better -- this is a great way to get attention and only works when combined with good salesmanship.

However on the other hand, some of the best ads don't look like ads at all -- such as third party independent articles. This goes all the way back to Claude Hopkins and Scientific Advertising. Think fake news articles -- they work well because people think it is a news reporter independently recommending the product.

I have some cpv ads that don't look like ads and they also do very well.

Again, understanding the principles of salesmanship and combining with influence/persuasion helps to make these successful.

The secret to me is to be informed and test, test, test.

btw Cashvertising is a great book -- I just gave a copy to a good friend a few days ago.

I agree - most affiliates lack the fundamentals when it comes to selling. I'm always looking for ways to improve my ability to sell - as it's critical in just about anything. Selling is not just about getting someone to pay you money for a product.

You sell anytime you are persuading someone to your own idea. You are selling when you persuade them to click, you're selling when you convince your friends to go out to dinner at a certain restaurant. You're selling anytime you need someone else to believe in what you have to say - even if money does not exchange hands.

FTC is cracking down on fake news sites. Be warned.

Yes. I should have had that disclaimer in my post.

There are other ways to make an ad not look like an ad

I think this is where I am having problems.

Perhaps the forum should have a sales section where people can post swap files or sales related posts.

I do have cashvertising but I am still missing something.

I am getting the click through but not converting.

I need to perfect the presell.

to make an ad not look like an ad? for example? give some ideas...what kind of "tricks" do you use?

mine was: a popup looked like a survey/poll. I had good results with that.

It could look like a warning, ezine article, auction or a comparison.

Those are just thoughts.
