Hard to believe lol!

I ain't saying you are lying here. I'm just curious!

 

Heck what were you promoting?

 

While making sales selling  products from the Clickbank Mall, people was buying advertising products and services instead of buying money making opportunities that I thought people wanted.

 

So, I started promoting advertising products and services like I do today... In fact, most of the programs that I promote you can join and use as a FREE member with the option to upgrade if you need or want more benefits and commissions.

Are traffic exchanges useful or a waste of time?

 

You know, at this point I think they are useless for 95% of the honest people trying to use them.

 

Back a few years ago I think most people would be able to skim some sort of profit from them,

 

but today with all the captcha clicking services, multiple accounts, hiring foreign workers to click

 

etc, has turned this game into a tainted one.  Just my feelings of course.

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?


My strategy is to use a mailer program to promote a Safelist. I also promote the mailer program its self.I use Referral Frenzy and get steady increasing results as each month passes.

It depends on what you are advertising, how, and where--all traffic is not alike.

 

All TEs are not alike, either :-).

 

I have been using TEs since they were invented, and now own one, which is a tale in and of itself. Fortunes began life as a perfectly honorable tax dodge. Unfortunately, it became successful even faster than my last tax dodge.  My other half has told me these are two of my very few failings; my refusal to run a business poorly, or run a poor/dishonest business. he's joking, of course, but he's also right.

 

My members report that they are getting signups from the login ads, and the regular traffic, and I offer some really good benefits to my Nekosamas (the life time members)--including an automatic upgrade and freebies in all my future tax dodges LOL. But Fortunes is evolving into a combination play place, wealth redistribution portal, and stealth sales funnel. It's actually rather fascinating to watch.

 

If you have a bright, explosive splash and banners, short timers and fun sites work well.  I use the old school sites--the ones with longer timers and NO games, contests, zubees, etc., to advertise squeeze pages and freemiums, and sites like funguppy and leads leap--free with good paid options. And both types work well for me. On sites like Fortunes I can chat, play games to win cash and traffic, collect zubees, and find the occasional cool, new, free thing.

 

On the old school sites, I can surf and examine programs without distraction. 

 

Of the last 10 programs I joined, I found 7 through traffic exchanges of one kind or another, and the other three through Jackpot Viral Mailers. And in the last year I bought 4 digital information products online--2 I ran into through viral mailers, one I ran into on Traffic G, and one I found on Fortunes while surfing.

 

There are plenty of buyers, clickers, and hard driving types on traffic exchanges--it just takes longer sometimes to run into them.

Traffic exchanges for me are for medium - long therm downline build. you need to create a good referral lists with promoting sites and then participate on contest, like referral contest, promoting contests, points ,jackpots, etc...  but is for medium long term.

TE sites could be very useful if using them in the right way I guess, but still required effort and time.

You need something that stands out to grab the surfers attention. And the action you want them to take has to be simple and quick - such as opting in or clicking to open a new tab for more info.

My best strategy for using TE's is by using TE's downline builders to grow large downines in the various sites by promoting only one link. :)

When you have no plan, traffic exchanges are a total waste of time. In order to benefit from them, you need to organize, use effective Splash Pages, and follow up on every lead. Ultimately, you can do very well with traffic exchanges, but it does take time, patience, and practice.

one of the biggest mistake that people make while surfing is they only click and don't get onto chats at Te's.Chatting while surfing helps building up networking with fellow surfers and is a key ingredient towards making your online presence felt and is one of the key path to success

I find traffic exchanges a challenge. I'm a terrible designer, but I make a lot of my own splash pages. Just text and some images thrown together with a banner. These often work really well. The idea is to pull the best points from what you're promoting and make them stand out in the surf. It does help also to get yourself known. Most of the early members in our Zubee Zone team come from Traffic Swirl where I was an active team surfer and sometimes even a bit chatty  :)

Earning zubee coins is nice, but if that's all you're doing on TEs then that seems like an ineffective use of time. You should be earning more money from the advertising on the traffic exchanges than what you can get from collecting zubees. You should be earning zubee coins AND using the TEs for advertising.

Yes agree with Cristinz... :)  the good combination is use both TE and mailers for advertising and the extra is you get coins for doing surfing and read emails/send email..

I think they are a waste of time. You are advertising to people who are selling their own products. I personally believe that there are more effective way to make generate traffic and make sales.

It would be a waste of time if we sold the exact same thing that the others are offering for that product or service.

 

But, do you have your own:

  • Trackers Service,
  • Splash page maker,
  • Downline Builders,
  • Membership Sites,
  • Forums,
  • Safelists,
  • Traffic Exchanges
  • Adboards
  • FFA
  • Viral Mailers
  • Etc...

I don't have all of the above and that's why I use Traffic Exchanges, Safelists, Viral Mailers, Adboards, Forums and Etc... :)

Yes, you're advertising to people who are selling their own products... and ALL of those people without exception are almost certainly looking for ways to get more traffic to their sites.

Provide that and you're on to a winner!
