No Cost Invention Infomercials
Advertising aside, personal communication is moving into the realm of video with video e-mail, video instant messaging and video blogging. It is estimated that there are currently in the neighbourhood of 50 billion e-mails sent everyday. Advertise and put your customers' affiliate websites into rotation, so they can make some sales.

Very few products meet these criteria and virtually no major brands do. Successful infomercials rely on a visible spokesperson to both vouch for the product and sell it.
