Why are Gurus claiming that the CPA Industry Dead?

One of the common themes I’m hearing about all the “super-affiliates” of the community is that things aren’t what they used to be like.

But, why on earth are consumers so attracted to this viral decay?

Last week, I read a great article explaining how ‘ugly’ landing pages often times convert better than ‘beautiful’ landing pages (meaning your typical designer’s design). Two very valid statements. However, marketers and designers continue to duke it out over the color of a [...]
