One Of My Top 3 Traffic Sources Just Silently Re-Launched

August 14th, 2011 1 comment

If you’ve had a chance to read my Traffic Exchange book, you’ll already know why this is one of my favorite traffic sources, but just in case you haven’t, keep reading…

So, apparantly, a month or so ago, one of my favorite traffic exchanges re-vamped, re-designed and basically re-launched, but pretty quietly. The exchange in question is Traffic Swarm.

If I remember correctly, Traffic Swarm was one of the first 3 traffic exchanges I ever joined – I think this would have been back in 2007, or maybe even 2006 – having learned about them from the then brand-new Magnetic Sponsoring community. (Yeah, I could get sidetracked on Magnetic Sponsoring and talk about THAT for hours, but lemme stay focused).

What turned me on to Traffic Swarm back then was it’s similarity to Google Adwords, in that rather than clicking randomly from website to website (or even picking one based on thumbnails like some newer TEs do), you’re given a page full of “AdWords Ads” and you pick one to visit.

I’ve found that the targetted traffic I get tends to convert several tiems better than at any other traffic exchange that I use, if I can write a real winning ad, simply because the traffic becomes more “direct-response” type traffic, than truly random traffic.

I also found that another advantage is that I can put up more websites that are not so targetted for the “Making Money From Home” industry, and still get great responses – also, because of the filtering that they have.

A final useful tip, like I write about in my follow-up email series to my Traffic Exchange book, is that I love using Traffic Swarm as a great way to test ad copy before using it on Google in my Google Adwords account!

One thing I can say about Traffic Swarm, is that they’re one of the exchanges that I spend the most real money on, because of the quality of the traffic.

According to this post on their blog, they relaunched exactly a month ago. It was done pretty quietly, without much fanfare – at least not that I heard of.  Which is a bit of a shame, because they’be got some incredible deals going on.  Be forewarned that their offers aren’t cheap to begin with, but I personally have been looking for an excuse to get some Traffic Swarm upgrade goodness, so took them up on it anyways.

Let me know if you’re interested in hearing my results from the new Traffic Swarm.

What’s This ThumbVu Thingy? (On your iPhone?)

January 7th, 2010 No comments

I hope the new year’s going well for you.

Let me get straight to the point.  First, yes, this is going to be a “sales pitch” post.  Bummer – sorry.  But there’s a bright side to it.

There’s a program that just launched a few days ago – made a lot of noise for just a few days…   And then got quiet again.  I had a tragedy in the family (great uncle had a heart attack and passed away :( ) so I only saw the launch emails a day late, and didn’t really act on them.

THEN, today I got a tweeted something from my buddy Jamison Raymond, and I went to look and it was this same site that I’d heard about.  So I figure, ok let’s take a look.

And, boy – it was REALLY really REALLY cool!

Like check out this splash page (I love it and it’s available for anyone to use!):

I haven’t used a splash page out-of-the-box in ages, but I loved this one! :)

The program is really cool too.  It’s new and slick – like Traffic Dealer and Top Tier Traffic were when they came out.  They have really amazing social media and list building integration (pro members only :/ ) which is amazing, and may convince me to keep my upgraded membership just by itself.

And it’s semi-targetted traffic; people see a thumbnail of your site and click on it to visit it, so you’ve already got people who are semi-interested.  I love it!

They’re also very person-branding oriented.  There’s plenty of places to get your face and your links in front of people.  Whenever someone clicks on your site, in addition to your site being displayed, your picture, blog, twitter, facebook, skype, and any other details you want ALSO can be displayed – that’s personal branding on a whole new level!

The best part is, I happened to notice that there’s a cash contest for referals.  The leader, Jon Atwood, has only 11 referrals, which means that noone is promoting it, meaning that there’s HUGE potential to still build a massive downline there!  Even better, they give their pro members random referals.  I can’t promise results from getting in early on random referals, but I jumped in at High Hits when it just launched an random referals alone have built me a downline of 10% of the membership base there!

There’s an upgrade option, which I found to be a tad on the pricey side, but if nothing else, at LEAST try a 1-month trial at $17 (inside the site it’s more) – the social media, 250 free credits EVERY WEEK, and the rest are all worth it.

Definitely check it out (hey – at least sign up for free and maybe help ME win the referral contest, maybe? ;) )

Heck, they even desigend it specifically to work from your iPhone!  How friggin’ cool is that?!?

Anyway, I’m still loving my first experience with it and hope this one will both be a keeper and teach us some new ways to market ourselves better!

Jason James is at it again! (Time to upgrade my autoresponder subscription!)

It’s that time of year again.  Jason James is (finally!) doing another Greedy Giveaway.  I wait breathlessly for this once-or-twice-a-year event because since the 2nd (I missed the first) they ALWAYS build a hot list for me.

They’re also dirt cheap, generous on commissions, and massive events (several thousand members each time)

Heck, I didn’t even know who Jason was until I signed up (without upgrading!) to the Greedy Giveaway 2 back in summer ’08 and saw an odd site giving me masses of signups and went back to see what the heck the site was – I’d forgotten that I was even a contributor, and hadn’t promoted AT ALL, and couldn’;t understand why I was getting 100 signups to my sites in a week.

The second time around I’d upgraded and promoted, and…  Well, suffice it to say that it paid off BIG TIME!

Want your few hundred subscribers?  Get started by signing up for free, here.

OH yeah, I almost forgot this insane twist that Jason’s added this time.  I personally think he’s a bit off his rocker, and he’s gonna LOSE money on this, so you might want to join and lock in the deal before he comes to his senses, but he’s giving $1 away for EVERY SINGLE active contributor you bring on board, on top of the normal commissions.

I don’t want to miss out on that – sign me up!

Oh yeah – one last thing is you’ve only got a week to get in before the contributors doors close for good, so don’t waste time!

See you on the inside (hopefully hundreds of subscribers “richer” ;) ),

Why I almost cried! …And why that’s good for everyone else!

Before I got around to crying, I think I set a world record for saying “Wow!” yesterday.  The occasion certainly deserved it; my good buddys Paul Kinder, Jon Olson and Tim Linden invited me to take a sneak preview of their recently relaunched TE Toolbox, and…..  WOW!!!

Let me clarify: many of you know of my smart rotator system, called The Traffic Optimizer.  I won’t go into details of what exactly it does (you can look at a demo here if you really want.  I’ll wait.  Ready to go on?)  Anyway, I spent years perfecting the system.  It’s got ranked weights on the sites.  It’s got subrotators.  It’s got the ability to filter the views on the websites shown so that members of a given site don’t see ads for that site… EVER!  It’s hosted on Google’s network of servers so that the images and audios go lightning fast.  It’s got my own state-of-the-art tracking system.

It is, in short, what took me from a hobbiest with a list of 150 or so, to a pro with a name and face that the Gurus in the industry know and respect, a list of over 2,500, and a monthly residual income of hundreds of dollars.  Every month.

And I just threw half of it out the window.  Because TE Toolbox trumped me BIG TIME!  And the best part is that I can benefit from almost every single feature I mentioned above at TE Toolbox for less than 500 dollars!  Less than 100 dollars!  Heck, less than 100 quarters!

Want me to keep going?

Less than 100 nickels…  Or 100 pennies…  Or even 1 penny…

That’s right, free, non-premium-upgraded members DO get to play with the premium toys!

* Every link you send can be fully tracked right through to signup – even if you are a free member!
* Options to set the rotator to include frames, or have no frames, making it 100% advertisement-free – even if you are a free member!
* You don’t get one splash and squeeze page maker, you get TWO – even if you are a free member!
* You get to add your own sounds or speech hosted on a worldwide-spanning content network for lightning fast display – even if you are a free member!
* You can host 5 pictures or images on the same robust content network as the audios – even if you are a free member!
* You can earn great commissions from your downline – even if you are a free member!

I almost cried when I counted the hours and dollars that I’ve spent over the past 2 years and planned on selling for hundreds of dollars per month – and people have been BEGGING for my system at ANY price – only to see Paul, Tim and Jon go behind my back and spill the beans for NOTHING per month with TE Toolbox!

It’s so good, even *I’m* using their tools already!  And I haven’t even found the time to finish looking at all of the great features, yet, like the downline builder, the profit-pounding thank-you-offer rotator, the deluze banner rotator, the innovative site filtering, the incredible statistics interface with instant up-to-date results, 3 months history and sortable interface!


what the heck are you STILL doing reading this?  Go join TE Toolbox now!

Go away.  Stop reading.  You’re wasting precious marketing time!

PS.  OK, ok.  You’re going to be a treasure hunter, eh?  OK – here’s the deal, but let’s keep it quiet, ok?  After you sign up, you’re going to be offered an incredible one year top-level upgrade… for less than 3 figures!  And if that’s too much, there’s a monthly upgrade available for under 10 bucks…  But you’ve GOT to take it when you sign up, or pay more later on!  I won’t even tell you how much, because it’s just not as good a deal as this!  But remember – despite this being a steal, you’ll lose far more by not using the incredible free features now, than waiting to upgrade later.

Join TE Toolbox right this minute!
