I was just having lunch with a friend of mine who is working on a new affiliate program. She seemed very excited about it, and as we ate our delicious cold lobster salad she gave me allrepparttar details. I began asking her a few questions, and asrepparttar 102617 creme brulee arrived she admitted that she's been a little disappointed with her sales. "It doesn't make sense," she groaned to me over her latte, "It's not like I'm trying to sell long underwear inrepparttar 102618 Bahamas. I'm offeringrepparttar 102619 hottest widget ofrepparttar 102620 moment for 10% less than anyone else onrepparttar 102621 web, and I've already linked my site to several affiliates, but no one's buying. What am I doing wrong?"

We went overrepparttar 102622 basics: good product, good price, good web site, good affiliates. "It's got to be something," I said, "what's your linking strategy?"

"They're probably great," I assured her, "butrepparttar 102623 fact is, no matter how nice they are, they're still banners."

So what's wrong with banners? Nothing really, except that they've become a little too common and people have started to ignore them.
