I've used traffic exchanges off and on, and never really got into using them as a main source of traffic. 

 

The repetitive tasks of clicking, and the fact that most TE members are using the exchanges to get traffic to their own sites (and have little to no interest in yours), made them undesirable.

 

 

I know traffic exchanges can work, if you have the write offer on your site.

 

For those who use TE's - what are your strategies for getting the most benefit from

the exchanges?

For me the biggest benefit of TEs is getting referrals. As you get referrals and they surf.. most TEs reward you with free credits from your downline activity.. which can generate a lot of free traffic if you build considerable downlines. Use a downline builder and get the same people joining multiple different TEs and doing that is not too hard.

I use TEs as one way to get referrals and build downlines. It's slow but it works.  TEs are also a good way to see what's new and drawing interest.

The ratio of the pages you browse to the displays of your page is so bad that I personally never have time for it. I get TE credits either from referrals or special sales. Having a TE downline builder in my own program helps with referrals.

 

The paradox is that you still hope that there are people browsing, probably novices and those with a lot of extra time. Probably there are, because I still get some decent response from TEs (at least some of them).

AS Glen Palo does, I sometime browse just to see what is going on.

Safe Lists, TEs, Rotator Ads, Viral this-that-you name it ........   Seems to all boil down to the same thing. Thousands of people trying to sell their programs to each other.  It has been this way for many years.   If you have the time, pick the ones you like and go for it.  Some people stick with one program while others, like me, advertise 5-10-20 programs.   In the long run I believe that either way you end up sponsoring about the same number of people.

 

As far as earning $, as I have said before, it depends on whether or not you are the admin/owner or just a member.  See my blog.  www.market101.info

Is there a newly released TE training ebook similar to Click Thru Marketing or AAA?

 

I would like to try TEs again if some one could point me to the good ones.

1. Most of the Traffic Exchanges were created to help the owner of TE.

 

2. TE consumes most of our time surfing and seeing the same old pages again and again.

 

3. we do get refferals but most are not active because most of them who surf are  looking for

    credits for their own websites and they are not real buyers.

 

4. but still Traffic exchanges have become one of the important traffic source online, because they give hits to websites

    which is important for those list their sites in the search engines.

 

5. Traffic exchanges can be productive if they provide the surfers with a long standing benefts  like increase in credits with increase in lifetime pages surfed and sending pages to surfer not only country targeted also viewers targeted by knowing their purpose of surfing.

 

6.  I still beleve TE are great idea and  something will happen sooner or latter to the TE business and it will be positive and help the advertisers and the surfers.

I find that solving the problems of a typical internet marketer

is good strategy.  Since they are there only for traffic to their

own sites, why not promote tools that provide that.

 

Also, promoting splash pages and squeeze pages that load

quickly.  If you have a minimal budget, traffic exchanges

are a good option for traffic.  You have to build downlines in

those things, though.  You want consistent, cumulative,

traffic across MANY exchanges - but the results are methodical.

I find TE's to be useful for getting new members to my primary email list.  At the moment, I have two TE's that feed sign-ups to my main list which I use to send special promotions.

 

My signups where I am asking for money are way low as a percentage of the number of emails sent, whereas, the signups to join my lists are acceptable.

I no longer use TEs, I personally dont have the time to spend around clicking, and I get much better conversions on other sources (although these are paid).

 

I do however tried, TE Co-op from Pageswirl and based on the traffic sources from my tracker, they are reliable and the TEs they mention do show on my traffic sources, so they walk their talk, so for me is a better way to surf without clicking from time to time, if anyone is interested on testing.

Your splash has to be unique and captivating to get any results. You must grab attention in about 5 seconds.

If you can find a way to scale then I vote not a waste of time.  If you're talking about just clicking for yourself, one click at a time then yes, that imo is a waste.

Like anything else online, if you concentrate on one good source and learn all you can about it, so you can share what you learn with others who are wandering, THEY STILL WORK.

 

If you follow what the traffic exchange owners tell you and surf several at a time, you don't begin to see what is there for you. I only use ONE exchange daily and never spend my credits to have my page shown, but I still get referrals for all kinds of projects.

 

The biggest problem is too many people are in such a rush, they never pause to smell the MONEY!

I have found that with promoting PTC programs the best option for advertising them

would have to be in specified places. Those places are in the same nature as they are (paid to Click).

I have found out that some traffic exchanges do work well with them however. I have been working with

ptc programs and I have had my struggles. I have now learned to focus on the sites that advertise these websites.

Those are the most beneficial. Also, you still have to watch for seeing the same ads within these sites. If you see your

program being advertised back to back . That says to me that you may want to place another one of your links there.

Your PTC program is not unique to that website and 9 times out of 10 you may not get anyone to sign up. The potentials

will likely be clicking just to click and not really be seeking an opportunity.

 

Great topic.

Great topic.

That's why you need to learn to create your own UNIQUE presentation pages so you catch more interested prospects attention.

Hi Kurt,

 

My first success with FREE advertising came from using TE's.

 

Would you believe, that I was making direct sales from them selling Clickbank products. This was at a time when most veteran marketers, Top Promoters, and Gurus said that they was a waste of time.

 

This was during the time when Clickbank use to send notification of sales made by affiliates and I got a lot of notifications of sales made. :ph34r:

 

I didn't use no splash pages, no squeeze pages... I promoted the sales page and made sale after sale... B)
