Why are they working. and why do some display ads deserve to be nothing more than bird cage lining.

Since we've been discussing sales copy "voices" lately, I'll let you in on a little secret about display ad voices. The biggest problem with display ad "voices" is that, for the most part -- there really aren't any.
