My favorite is Cat GIF. Not sure if it is even effective, though.
A popup on end-users' side (who might not even be a programmer), might be effective, though. Users might be able to choose between do not notify again and notify later. -- I have fallen to donative via this method sometimes, if I really like the product.
do not notify again
