Guy Hits Hurdle Wrong Good for Viral Business?

Greetings,

As I address this subject further, you may be interested in a previous blog post on viral advertising.

Predictable viral word of mouth advertising begins with the vision of an individual or small group.  I mention the word predictable because a youtube video of a track runner catching a hurdle just the wrong way, if you know what I mean, is well, unplanned*.  Back to executing viral…

*Unless your a goofus that practices shooting a video of you acting like your messing up on a hurdle.  Which crazy enough, I might try if I thought it would further traffic exchanges.

Granted this only had 100,000 views but you get the point.

 

Now let’s look at the traffic exchange communities, the Cash Surfing Network and the Plus 1 Daily.  The passionate and knowledgeable people meet at webinars currently hosted at Blab.  CSN is at 6pm eastern Monday-Friday and P1D is at 4pm eastern Monday-Thursday.

CSN is headed by Marcus Wahl, Ken Locatelli, Rodney Hage, and Eric Goettman.  Plus 1 Daily is headed by Justin Ledvina, Jon Olson, and Tim Linden.  These are the individual/small groups that see a greater vision for the industry.

Now begins the reaching out process, the spread.  Obviously, there are people that support the webinars or what would be the point of doing them and members support traffic exchanges because that is what makes them work.  We greatly appreciate that support because we understand that without it, there is nothing.  These small groups of passionate supporters reach out to communities they are involved in and the growth process goes further.

Remember, you represent your community.  Might I add that it is value that attracts people and keeps the ball rolling.  Now let’s talk about the vehicle of our message.  We could open our door at home and yell, “Hey, have you heard about traffic exchanges?  They are really great!” but we would probably just bother our neighbors.  Instead, our target is more online as that is where our industry is hosted (I’m not saying that going to a live convention of marketers could not be a productive place to discuss traffic exchanges).

Online methods of reaching communities include facebook, twitter, g+, and linkedin.  These sites have tons of people using them and are full of micro communities.  People gravitate towards picking specialties within these sites and in business because small groups/individuals handle very specific topics well.

The seven of us mentioned above can’t reach every place that we need to be, but, a group can.  Use main stream social media, forums, message boards, emails, and anything that is your specialty, because a larger industry is one that will support your business.

If you see the future with us or enjoyed the article then give it a little social love right below ya. Heck, comment on the post so people see you when they come here.  Let them know your interested in something greater.

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.

Marcus Wahl

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!

 

Do Keep Going, Do Work Hard, Do Keep Learning

Greetings,

I think this business can be quite frustrating in the beginning.  In ways, I think it is the hardest part.  Your not getting paid anything or very little, there isn’t a snowball effect (I mean your stuff isn’t getting shared because it’s not out there yet, your very far from the tipping point), everything you need to learn is in front of you, you may even be burdened with a low budget (I know I was).

In an earlier blog post, I discussed DECIDING that your going to succeed.  That is a very important decision that you need to make.  With hard work and a decision to learn you will eventually experience success in this business.  If you have average intelligence or above I guarantee it.

It can be challenging to us as people to do what we think is hard work and not be rewarded.  What is important is the big picture.  Sometimes we can literally miss the reward, maybe you tried to work hard in front of someone and they didn’t notice.  BUT, if you take the whole population of successful people, I’ll show you a group as a majority that has worked hard over and over.  Hard Work = SUCCESS so much that it is a statistically proven formula to win.

Your style of learning: Hear it, See it, Read it, and Touch.  In my journey, for much of the beginning, I did very little reading.  I didn’t prefer it.  I liked to hear it and see it. I attended TELive (4pm eastern M-Thur) on a very regular basis. I also listened to what other people said and did lots of hands on things by doing things.  Now I have started to read some outside the industry and I am cool with it. The CSN Webinar is another place that you can interact about this business live showing at 6pm eastern Monday-Friday.

My big point here is that the above webinars are free to learn and network at.  Are you going to DECIDE to try and put in an effort.  There are many people out there that will offer to help if you ask.  My personal skype is mcwahl2  I prefer that you ask questions, because I have already written large amounts of Information on Training(Login First), including this blog, to give you an outline of what to do.

Are you on a low budget?  I can hook you up with a 6.00 unique squeeze page from Adkreator to start building your list. Your only additional cost will be an auto-responder called Rocket Responder which is 20.00 a month.  We can discuss your email series that will develop a positive relationship of you helping your subscriber that has supplied their email address to you.

Do It Today, and Everyday, your business will thank you!

At this time, I would like to thank all those that have helped me on my journey.  Whether it be a skype call or conversation, live webinar, or now even a book.

Would YOU Like to Abuse Our Traffic System Legally?

Greetings,

I’m betting if your reading this your looking for some good traffic and wanting all the extras and bonuses that come with it.  Here is how to take a group of traffic exchanges and kick butt!  By surfing the six main traffic exchanges of CSN you will be collecting traffic credits, hot bucks, ctp xp badges, slot machine xp, prize page xp, emerald eggs(xp), AND CASH!

For the below discussion please JOIN CSN FREE and/or Login to CSN

Now the interesting thing is if you surf the famous 555 pages at each of the six core sites of CSN YOU WILL:

1. Always win a cash prizeAND If upgraded at CSN, you also will always earn a cash prize from a direct referral surfing 555 pages at each of the traffic exchanges (.001) and .01 if you are upgraded at the specific traffic exchange surfed as well.  Maximum of 15 555 referrals with the cash king upgrade and above.  Note that this is possible because you surfed 555 at each traffic exchange.

2. Complete the biggest part of the CSN Elite Check List in which you enter a drawing for FREE REFERRALS.

3. Find Hot Bucks while your surfing which provide advertising and cash prizes. You also compete in a Weekly Race for FREE REFERRALS.

4. Always earn advertising.  If your afraid you will get too much of the same traffic just advertise the Legacy Team Coop url link or Rapid Fire Ads Coop url link at the six sites to earn traffic all over the place.  The above two sites also give XP badges for just earning set amounts of hits, 250, 500, 750, 1000, 2500!

5. Receive 3 surfing bonuses by surfing the sites together: Mega Surfing, Goettman Power Surf, and Nerd Surfing (you will need to surf two additional nerd surf sites at the same time to enjoy the nerd surf bonus).


I encourage you to advertise the Rapid Fire Ads Coop url to gather silver tokens(it’s store currency) and it’s advertising.  You can test out the advertising now of course, but, we have BIG plans for it for version 2 coming out this summer.  We will be focusing on the top producing sites of responsive traffic and of course it will cover you in many smaller sources.

P.S. Don’t forget that the XP Team Collecting has a $5,000.00+ prize pool at the end of season 3.

You don’t need to surf anywhere else unless they have hot bucks 🙂 ,or for completions sake, you find that you also want a high concentration of traffic from the few other productive large traffic exchanges out there. The more people that participate in hot bucks, owners and members, we will systematically increase the prizes!  Just nerd surf the Tim Tech sites with Legacyhits and Tophits4u for maximum XP and HOT BUCKS action!

Author’s Note: When someone reads the last paragraph above I hope they understand that I mean ALL participating sites that have Hot Bucks.  You will also note that I mention  nerd surfing with TT sites and even leave the reader with the openness of other selections.  I just hope nobody read this and thought, oh he is saying to only surf the 6 main CSN sites.  As it should now be very clear, I was not saying that at all.

Online Traffic Tools are Not Enough!

Greetings,

Just understanding your tools such as Adkreator, Trck.me, and Rocket Responder is not enough. Your gonna have to get your business mindset, model, or plan.  Maybe you have gotten your visual recognition out there  by using adkreator with your photo and name.  You have laid that foundation down that you are personable and fun to work with.  You have worked on introducing yourself and aligning yourself with good long term programs.  You are able to track what works and what doesn’t and your email machine is ready to crank em out.  But now what?

Now it’s time, if you have not done it already, is to think about the value that you are going to bring to your member, customer, or signup.  Why should I signup under you?  There are plenty of people out there ready to sign me up.  Are you going to be able to help me, do you know enough about the program in question to help me?  Are you going to have enough time to help me?  Here is how Adkreator can be helpful. I can easily brand a page with my photo and name letting people know they are signing up under me, which if you have done things right, your brand will let people know that you are going to be able to help them. Your ad can also be one of a kind so that it sticks out as a unique page in the advertising arena.

Taking this on to program ownership, what value is your program to me? Are you going to be able to provide me with support if I need it. Will you support your products long term and have potential future development? Are you looking to make a sustainable long term product that I can count on? Tell everyone who you are by what you do and word of mouth moves at the speed of light.  186,000 miles per second is pretty fast!

Go on now. Fill those needs and do it well, then your business will be all the better for it.
