Your Unsuccess isn’t because of Unavailable Traffic

Greetings,
As a surfer I can generate over 2,000 credits in an hour.  You can purchase 1,000’s of credits, especially at the Legacy sites, for the price of a cup of coffee. So getting enough traffic shouldn’t EVER be a problem.

Getting exposure in many sites shouldn’t EVER be a problem either. The Legacy Team Coop and Rapid Fire Ads are free traffic cooperation sites.  The members inside it work together to produce a diverse, spread out exposure to 100’s of sites.

What is more of a decision is what to advertise and how.  Your most important choice starts with affiliate product selection and/or Your Website.  Why?  It’s because all of your work promoting leads back to the proper selection.  Would you set up a lemonade stand with just an empty pitcher sitting there and walk all over town posting signs that your lemonade stand is open.  See what I mean?

Now how good of a sign are you going to post for your lemonade stand?  A 5 inch by 5 inch sign with sloppy letters lemonade stand open… No of course not.  Then don’t do it in traffic exchanges or mailers either.  If your new or not experienced then pay someone to design your advertisement.  You can pay from $6 to $50 or even more I’m sure to design one.  I’ll do a page(reasonable quality) for $6, only one per person, if your in a bind.  With experience you could use a program like Adkreator.

Guess what?  Even a reasonable splash page could do poorly.  It’s very important what the page looks like and what it says.  That is why there is easy tracking software to use, Trck.me.  Some advertising concepts might be specific to where your showing them.

Lastly, if you want to increase your results, participate in the community.  Make connections in traffic exchange chats, skype, facebook, and twitter with the like minded people in the industry.  People seeing your ad after they get to know you increases familiarity and potency of your ad.

Your Future, Our Future, the Industry’s Future

Greetings,

Note: If your a veteran this is a good refresher and you need to have the ability to help a new person if you are experienced anyway.

I keep thinking of the new person to the industry or the person still at the beginning of their business. How can we get them successful as soon as possible?

Let’s take a moment to define success: Meeting your first person online, adding a contact to twitter, facebook, or skype, getting your first signup to your List, making your first commission, getting your first payment, and on we go. Have you forgotten these if your a veteran?

I get the feeling that many people are in a hurry to make a lot of money. Is this you? We would all like to experience this. But if your new or still at the beginning for whatever reason(not experiencing success), stop just a second.

I want to cover how much you know and your abilities, but first, I want to tell you why and it’s a BIG WHY.

If you explore Traffic Exchanges, Mailers, and PTC’s then you will see the following:

1. Standard Affiliate Splash Pages, and/or pages without personal branding (lacking a picture and name) and/or big affiliate pages that are full sized, full of writing.

(1 is the worst possible choice)

2. Personally Branded Splash Pages. You can create your own at Adkreator.

(A better choice than 1)

3. A squeeze page that builds your list and enables you to guide people to programs.

(You get the system, 3 is better than 1 and 2)

4. A personally branded (your name and picture) on a squeeze page (a page that collects emails for your list).

5. Website Ownership

Now a BIG WHY of why the above is the way it is. Anyone with an intelligence of 80 or above can figure out how to do 1.  The problem with 1 is that people do not know who they are joining under nor are they given a reason to join you over another.

Number 2 is a better choice because you are not only advertising a program, but you are building your presence(business) as well.

Number 3 is a better choice because you set yourself up for repeat sales and communication.

Number 4 is obviously better because your adding in list building along with building your personal presence.

Number 5 is the strongest possible choice, but it requires the investment of time, money, and a little creativity.

Now it’s on YOU!  How much do you know, who do you know, and what do you have ability wise?  You see the more you know about the business your advertising, the more your known as someone that helps people, the more people you know and have influence with, the more you know about the industry in general, then the more attractive your advertisements and list become to join.  See how this all works together with the above?

This is why the picture, name, video presence, brand, and logo are all important.  It’s because of what was said above.

Furthermore, I would like to discuss the Cash Surfing Network.  We provide you with personally branded squeeze pages with social site integration (the best kind) in the affiliate area.  You can easily put your auto-responder code in the affiliate area and save it. Boom your ready to build your list and YOU with the Cash Surfing Network.

Now, let’s revisit the make a bunch of money in a hurry again.  Your not going to make a million dollars putting people into traffic exchanges and CSN unless you have access to a very, very large amount of advertising or very, very large list.  The amount of advertising we are talking about is much larger than the entire traffic exchange, mailer, and ptc industry.  The list size with responsiveness would have to be huge.

CSN gives you the ability to private message your downline which has alert by email.  We already discussed pages that have your facebook and twitter on it.  Also, right smack in the members area of CSN is you and your social networks.  The making a million dollars comes more from participating in the entire community and making contacts.  What evolves out of all the people growing and working together directly or indirectly, that is where the million dollars is made.  Putting something like that together takes time and/or money.  Probably more than many of you think.

Let’s Build Something Great Together.

P.S.  If you would like to talk about traffic topics, insights, questions, statements, interests, tools, and/or just about anything traffic, we are available at 6pm eastern every monday through Friday at this link: Webinar.  Make sure to talk about traffic in the chat or we have a tendency to go way off topic 🙂

A Creaspecue? CSV- Creative Specific Value- Same as Gold!

Greetings,

I was surfing through some traffic exchanges as I often do and was feeling pretty numb.  The ads were not that creative, I couldn’t seem to connect with the people that were advertising, and were they offering me value or just trying to redirect me somewhere.  Do they care about me as a customer/member?

I just get the feeling that many may be struggling to make a business out in this industry.  Let’s begin a possible why…  do they lack focus?  I think there are a lot of people that are taking this business on as individuals.  If that is the case, you can’t expect to act like a big company and provide what Google does.  Your strength will be in being SPECIFIC.  Another name for this is niche, but if someone is new, what the heck does niche mean 🙂  It is from something specific that smaller start ups can potentially build an empire.

You bring people into your circle of influence by having SPECIFIC VALUE.  In this industry, you might start with a dedicated squeeze page to capturing email addresses of people wanting info as to the best Hot Bucks Sites and how they work.  Another idea would be discussing how to win at CTP Teams.  By the way, if you going to run an auto responder series the suggested tool is Rocket Responder.  If you move on to website ownership, how does your website help people and provide SPECIFIC VALUE to them.

Finally, this takes us to creative.  If you happen to surf, then look for things that you find really creative.  Try to take away the essence from it.  Obviously, don’t screen shot the advertisement, use it for your own and then say look I’m being creative.  What I mean is if you look at enough creative ads, you will get a feeling of what creative means.  Study creative things to get an idea of what creativity is.

Final thoughts, to see things like this in practice for this industry, and I’m not saying we are perfect, just look around a site like Legacyhits, Cash Surfing Network, Tophits4u, and Click Track Profit.  They are great examples of programs that don’t look an ordinary piece of software from some commercial script.  See how the programs handle support, sales, and advertising.

Hope the discussion helps your business.  Have a good one!

Traffic Exchanges 2 Twitter 2 Facebook?

Greetings, there is a striking similarity between traffic exchanges and facebook, twitter, etc.  I know, your thinking I’m comparing apples to oranges right now.  What in the world are you talking about?  Traffic exchanges are a community just like the other social media vehicles are, BUT, we just happen to be much smaller.  We are not that big… YET 🙂  If you don’t think TE’s are a community then really you are not participating or you just don’t know how.  Remember the te chats and the Webinars that go on regularly. We meet every Monday through Friday at 6pm eastern for example.

It’s a two way street?  That’s right traffic exchanges are capable of growing facebook and twitter, just as they can grow us(of course they are more critical to our growth).  What I mean is that a member of our community may not be a member of those sites, or in my case, the member may learn to use those sites more.  Bam, they just grew, or bigger bam, our community just grew because your using social media.

In summary, both of these vehicles represent a tremendous place to brand yourself as someone of value to these communities.  Branding yourself with value leads to attraction, and attraction is your RETURN on INVESTMENT that all businesses are looking for.  I hope this increases your awareness of social media and improves your business.

P.S. Adkreator just added a profile to the site. Enter your details and you can automatically have your fb, T, G+, etc. show right below your splash or capture page.  Take advantage!
