    sale

    Interesting article, Rhia - except for the myriad ads and that initial pop-up. (I ONLY read it because you recommended it.)

    The problem is, as I see it, those folks with the "clunky" writing that you mention - won't be able to read, understand and/or apply any of that.

    Neil Patel is a co-founder of KISSmetrics and his advice is great; but you are right to criticize the many clunky pop-up banners that spring from the article -- something not to do. I guess he is over confident (from being semi-famous for his great advice in KISSmetrics).
    The pop-ups stop when closed out; it wasn't one of those never ending pop-ups that take control.
    The pop-ups were not affiliate product advertisements.
    The ban here is about pop-ups that are *also* affiliate product advertisements.

    The advice is excellent.

    You are right, some people can't apply the advice
    Copywriting is intrinsic to advertising -- what can be said?
    If someone can't write appealing copy maybe that person should take a course.

    I recommended the article hoping people can connect the dots.
