Thumbvu - Thumb Nail Surfing

I started using Thumbvu to create some traffic to my sites over 6 months ago. I really like this traffic exchange site. It is quite a unique surfing style compared to other traffic exchange sites. They have what they call thumb nail surfing. This is how it works, instead of just randomly having a new site come up each time, you will receive 3 thumb nails in the upper left hand corner of your screen. This is a thumb nail impression of 3 different site. You then click on the thumb nail of the site you want to view next. This is a unique concept you will only find at Thumbvu. The fact the viewer has picked your site increases the chances they will take action on the pages they view.

What else is quite valuable at Thumbvu is the ability to connect with other members via their social media sites. Thumbvu has integrated your profile with the ability to list the other social media sites you use. You can update your profile and other members of Thumbvu can connect with you via those social media sites. I have made some valuable contacts by sending friend invites to others who are members at Thumbvu.

Another feature of Thumbvu is the ability to surf from your mobile devices. Now you can surf anywhere, anytime that is convenient for your. I don't know of any other traffic exchange that allows you to do that.

All and all, it is still one of my favorite traffic exchanges to use on a daily basis. The owner John Guanzon has is ear to the ground and listens to what the membership base is saying. He continues to try and make Thumbvu a pleasant and productive surfing experience for its membership base. I highly recommend Thumbvu as a place to generate traffic, develop your own mailing list, and establish business connections. You can join as a free member and kick the tires around or take advantage of the one time offer you will receive during the initial sign up process. Join Here and I will see you on the inside.

My Personal Journey Continues

Today is October 12, 2010. It is a beautiful day here in southern Illinois. I thought this would be a good day to open the windows and reflect on my journey over the last 11 months. I started looking for something to help me earn some extra cash online at the end of last year. I have found some good programs, some bad programs, some idiotic programs and some fantastic programs. If you look hard enough, you can find something which fits you and your personality.

With that said, I like to find programs you can join for free or for a very small investment. I like knowing what I am going to lose if the program fails. That is why you won't see me joining any money making program which has a monthly monetary commitment. I have been there and done that. All I had to show for it at the end was a big credit card bill. Lesson Learned. Let me point out here, there are some tools I use which have a monthly fee. These are not my businesses but can be promoted as an affiliate income opportunity. This is something totally different. I don't use these tools for the affiliate income but for the advantages they give me in promoting my business. I have learned that some online marketers make their career out of promoting the tools. Kudos to them and their ingenuity. I do occasionally get a referral to these programs, to me this is just a way to get the tool for free.

The sun has gone behind a cloud and you can feel the fall air. There is no place I would rather be right now. I feel the same about my online marketing career. I am situated in the perfect place with some great opportunities ahead of me. I am a happy online marketer. If you aren't, maybe we should talk and I can help you reach this wonderful place I have found out here in Internet land.
