A good advertisement is one which sells the product without drawing attention to itself.  David Ogilvy

Advertisers play the silliest trust-busting games. We’ve all seen that little “x” in the corner of an online ad. You know what I’m talking about. The one that’s almost impossible to see with the naked eye. Here’s the part where trust gets muddied. If I’m looking for the “x” it means I don’t want to see the ad, or I’m not interested in the product. So why not make that X really BIG and BOLD so people like me don’t have to hunt for it and mumble something about busted trust as we are searching for the tiny little “x” in the corner.
