I use TE to also get referrals and downlines. When I first started I didn't really get anywhere, but I now I understand that the best way to make TE's work is to either have an eye-catching landing page which just requires an email, or to use them for referrals. 

 

 

I definitely think there's still a place for TE's, you've just got to know how to use them wisely.

The ratio of the pages you browse to the displays of your page is so bad that I personally never have time for it.


Depends which TEs you use. I surf Dark Hits almost daily. It has a 1:1 ratio and a 5 second timer if you're a free member, so you're getting one visit to your splash/squeeze page for every site you view... and with a well designed, attention-grabbing page, five seconds is easily enough time.

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)


What changed?

Did this just stop working (and do you know why) or did you just find more lucrative offers to promote?

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!

There is a lot in between the smell of money and money in your account. One of the successful but pretty deceiving ways to advertise is to create the smell of money without the way to get to the money. I've seen so many of these "baits" or "mouse traps"  (and, shame on me, was deceived by some) in my long years (on and off) in Network Marketing.

I find that the traffic from TEs is not particularly good traffic. People surf as many exchanges at once as they can, and don't actually look at anything. There are browsers specifcally dsigned to make surfing many exchanges at once easier. Even with a splashpage that is eye catching, they are still not looking at it. It seems that the only thing most TE surfers will join is downline builders and TEs. I make small commissions from upgraded members in a couple exchanges, but hardly enough to justify the time I spent building them. I am having way more success with MLM companies that have physical products I can market offline than anything I have tried online. Marketing anything other than traffic sources on TEs has been an exercise in futility. Even when I get them to fill out the capture page, they do not respond to any of the emails sent. Traffic exchange surfers just simply tend not to be buyers.

 

Maybe I'll buy a downline builder script and make my own downline builder. That seems to be the easiest way to leverage traffic exchanges.

I was red hot when I was using Traffic Exchange.

 

And I would be red hot today if I started using them like before.

 

I highly recommend Traffic Exchanges! :)

Which exchanges are working? I am finding the TimTech and Legacy exchanges have plenty of people using them, but they are not buyers. They care more about whether or not you have your picture on your splash page than what you are actually promoting. Can you recommend a few exchanges that are active with people who actually look at what is being offered.

My strategy in using traffic exchanges has always been building my own list with them.

 

Once they are on my list, my first few follow up emails will be delivering what was promised and my primary program.

 

Subsequently, I will be sending them emails whenever I update my blog to get traffic to my blog. I am not 

good with SEO's thus I find this method better for me.

 

When a new program is launched which I think will benefit them, I will then send out an offer.

 

Usually, I will get sign ups to new programs via this method while only promoting one page which is my squeeze page.

Utilising this method, it takes out the headache of thinking which program to promote next and etc. I get greater

conversions when promoting my own squeeze page.

 

When there are buyers in your list, you will notice that these buyers will be keen to join the programs you promote

and they will usually take upgrades, earning you commissions in the long run.

 

As for which traffic exchanges work, you need to track your conversions. The 2 traffic exchanges which has never 

failed to deliver sign ups for me are:

1. Traffic Ad Bar

2. Hit 2 Hit

3. Ad Master Plus (a hybrid site, I usually surf the traffic exchange to earn enough tokens to redeem mailing credits, I find

the mailer here produces better result than the traffic exchanges)

 

Regarding on how I build my list with traffic exchanges, you can visit my blog here to find out more about it at

Hi Troy, I highly recommend CyberWheelers which I listed in the Program Threads. The site has withstood the test of time.

 

The owner and I use to be members of a similar program when it went offline without a trace... We was red hot with the site.

 

So, the owner of Cyberwheelers started his own site to replace the site that went offline and he has done a great join.  :) 

 

BTW, the site is 100% FREE!

I've had good results purchasing banner ads that get displayed throughout the main page and members area on various traffic exchange sites. I'm talking about the standard 468x60 and 125x125 sizes here. Funny thing is that I have got way better results doing that as opposed to the main text clicking areas.

I want to add to this discussion that for me, one of the best places for my promotions are TE's Login Ads.

They definitely work, especially if you have a unique page for a new site ;-)

 

As to the regular TE site rotations, in my opinion it is mainly branding, branding yourself and your sites.

 

No, I definitely do not consider TEs as a waste of time,

plus, clicking is sometimes... relaxing :-)

Yep, they have worked well for me too! I guess it is a good thing most people don't purchase these.. more for me :)
