    Cliffs:
    - It's on TV (so someone has a huge budget)
    - the URL they give for the commercials in Chicago is www.connectme4free.com and it looks suspiciously like an affiliate CPA landing page
    - "Visit us now for a free success kit worth $100" is textbook IM

    If so, lets discuss the feasibility of using TV as a marketing medium for AM.

    I always figured TV commercials that had web addresses that had weird numbers randomly in them, like 82homebusiness.com*, were bullshit and/or CPA offers.


    * i just made that example up but I'm sure you've seen what I'm talking about.

    Part of that has to do with trying to track direct traffic, with a unique identifing number they can track which media buys sent them the most traffic and determine which set is the most profitable.
