Hypnotic Writing, on other hand, is not devious. It is not hidden. It is not illegal. It is designed to influence people with words---obvious words, seen consciously right on page or screen. It uses stories, active writing, strategic sentence structure, and more, to achieve results.
Subliminal advertising doesn't increase sales. Hypnotic Writing does. Subliminal advertising allegedly works below your conscious level of awareness. Hypnotic Writing works on your subconscious mind by using your conscious mind to get there.
Look at it this way:
An example of subliminal advertising might be famous claim that "images" in ice cubes in a liquor ad look like naked women. Well, you have to treat ice cubes like Rosarch Test ink-blots in order to come to that conclusion. And even if there were faint images of naked women in ice cubes, would that really influence anyone to buy more booze?
An example of Hypnotic Writing might be a story-oriented sales letter, such as famous one I wrote that people are using as a template for their own letters. My letter began, "I'm nearly in tears..." It then told a story of how my latest book was influencing people to go for, and get, their dreams. The story let sales message get into readers. More importantly, more copies of my book sold. Hypnotic Writing works.
In short, subliminal advertising is not only questionable, it's illegal.
Hypnotic Writing, on other hand, is legit and it gets results.
