Advertising needn't be expensive, and for those inrepparttar know; advertising can also be free. But occasionally your 'free' ads can get lost inrepparttar 101009 e-zine jungle. And, unfortunately, many people misuse their free ads. By 'misuse' I mean; do not word their ads appropriately. How many times have you seenrepparttar 101010 exact same ad forrepparttar 101011 exact same product? Probably too many times. Why would you want to risk having your ad placed directly underneath somebody else's ad that is exactlyrepparttar 101012 same as yours?

The best way to use, not misuse, your ad is to use a two-step system. Don't userepparttar 101013 advertising material thatrepparttar 101014 affiliate program has supplied. Why? Because it will berepparttar 101015 same material that every other affiliate will be using. Try to write your own ads. Don't worry about inventing that eye catching headline and having those action generating words, leave all that hype torepparttar 101016 so-called experts.

One ofrepparttar 101017 most effectively worded ads is an ad that is clear and straightforward. There's no need to hide your product underneath an ALL CAPS heading, a lot of BS promises and finally a URL that is as long as my grandma's knitting yarn. Ultimately you want to aim for a short two-liner. Why? Because it will be quicker to read and it will stand out from all ofrepparttar 101018 5 to 8 liners. Most ofrepparttar 101019 longer ads disguiserepparttar 101020 actual product with a lot of fancy words, only to haverepparttar 101021 prospect 'click away' within 5 seconds of reachingrepparttar 101022 site, because: 'they've seen it before'. That's an instant loss. You don't even get a chance to capturerepparttar 101023 prospects' details.
