Traffic From Traffic Exchanges

How valuable is the traffic you receive from using a traffic exchange site? This topic is very debatable in many circles. I, for one, have found the traffic to be very valuable. But, what is even more important is the contacts I am making by using different traffic exchange sites.

There are a lot of traffic exchanges which now have a side bar chat. You can surf for traffic while chatting with other members of the exchange. I have learned a lot of priceless information by watching, listening, and chatting with others.

I have been a member of Thumbvu for over a year. It is a unique traffic exchange where you can actually pick which site you view from 3 different "thumbnails". (Thus the name) A few months ago the owner, John Guanzon, added the chat feature to his site. I have always enjoyed surfing Thumbvu but now it is an even better. I can get credits for my sites while chatting with other Thumbvu members. It's called Social Networking and it Works!

If you are not a member of Thumbvu, I urge you to try it. You can even join for free.

Working In The Background

Busy, Busy, Busy, that is what the life of a true Internet Marketing has become. There is no working 1 hour a day and making $10grand a month. It just doesn't happen, at least, not for anyone I know personally. Recently, I have been revamping my advertising campaigns. I am trying to include all my money making and advertising resources in one opt in campaign. This will be an opt in for those who want to follow what I do online monthly to make a positive cash flow.

So, I'm still here. I am working diligently in the background. Tweaking, sorting, exploring, inventing, and brain storming. Stay tuned for interesting things to come.

Nothing I Hate More Than OTO's

Joining a new program can be fun but there is nothing I hate more than getting the OTO (one-time-offer) before you are even know information about the program you are joining. I guess we are just supposed to take it on blind faith that the program being offered is something we can't live without. Wouldn't it be better to give us a sneak peak before you start trying to get in to our wallets? I know this has turned me off a few program and I just didn't join at all.

What's, also, annoying is when the OTO becomes a series of 3 or 4 more chances at the same offer. If you say ONE TIME, then please only offer it ONE TIME. The fact you call me names or tell me I am passing a fabulous deal will not change my mind. What will change my mind is getting a look at Quality Content. Show me something I can use and then maybe I will be willing to make a purchase.

There's an idea: Offer a price, show the product, and then give the OTO. I want to know what I am purchasing before I commit my hard earned cash to a program. Just my opinion, what do you think?

GetBuxToday - 8 Days After Launch

8 Days after Brian Rooney, the co-owner of Traffic Wave, shocked the Internet Marketing World by launching a Pay To Click (PTC) Site, where is the program now? GetBuxToday has 24,000 members and the site has paid out $6283 at the time I am writing of this blog post. Not bad for a weeks worth of work.

For those of you who may not know, Traffic Wave is a well established online business which has been operating for over 10 years. Brian Rooney is a well respected marketer and businessman. This is obvious by the response to the launch of his PTC Program GetBuxToday. Many people who usually shy away from PTC programs are jumping on board this one. That includes me. As soon as I heard Brian Rooney was the owner, I couldn't join fast enough. Of course, the fact he was giving away free 30 day premium upgrades to the first 5000 members was pretty good motivation, as well.

I want to point out, there are PTC sites popping up all over the place. Please take due diligence and investigate before joining any new programs. If you find one with an owner like Brian Rooney, then jump in with both feet. Otherwise, use caution and make sure the program is legitimate or has been operating successfully for some extended period of time. The test of time is one of the best variables when recognizing a solid program.

It looks like Pay To Click Programs are here to stay. These are slow growing money makers which will pay off for those people who are persistent and use a renting referrals strategy. If that is you, then jump on board with a proven owner at GetBuxToday.

And Then There Is Life

I have been working online for over a year now. I still learn something new each day. One of the biggest things I have learned is to build relationships. People want to do business with people they trust.

I have to admit, I feel, I have been very lucky. I have become acquainted with several wonderful people. Some of these people I work with on a daily basis and some I just chat with once in a while. Yesterday, one of my favorite people was struck with some very bad news. Her father unexpectedly passed away. My mind began to race about what could I do to help. The truth is, I am miles away, and although we speak daily online, how is it possible for me to be the shoulder to lean on during this time of sorrow. So, I will pray and I will hope you know how much I truly care about you and your family. May God bring you strength.

Do You Play Nice With Others?

Social interaction is a big part of marketing online. Do you play nice with others? Wouldn't it be nice if when you wrote a blog post or an article you received a large quantity of comments? Think about it. You post and people comment, meaning they actually read your post. How exciting!

Do you play nice with others? When you read someone else's posts, do you comment? Not only does it make the writer feel good, it is a very good way of getting your name out there as a person who will reciprocate comments. By leaving a comment, you are now INTERACTING with the writer and the other readers. This is a great way to show you are active in your niche and do a little Self Branding, at the same time.

Most blogs allow you to leave your name with a hyperlink to a site of your choice. This is another tool you can use to link to your own posts or websites. Again, Branding.

It is time to start leaving comments on all the content you read. Side note - don't just say "Great Post, I enjoyed it." Take the time to leave a legitimate comment about what you just read. This type of action will be appreciated by the writer, as well as the other readers. Now, get out there and play nice with others.

An Interview With Jerry Iannucci

I have been very lucky lately to be making some great contacts. What is wonderful about marketing online, people are very helpful and want to see you succeed. I was granted an interview by marketing expert Jeryy Iannucci. Mr. Iannucci is well known in the traffic exchange and safe list circuit. He is a respected online marketer who always represents quality programs. You won't find any crap in his repertoire.

I try to get some good tips from Jerry by asking him about his most valuable marketing tools and the lessons he has learned along the way.

Don't Be Afraid To Ask

I got a message from another online marketer today. The message started with "I know you are too busy to help". Wait! Stop right there. I am never too busy to try and help you solve a problem. As a matter of fact, please ask for help when you need it. I may not be able to solve your problem, but I will be happy to try.

Asking other marketers for help is the perfect way to learn. Not only for you but for the person you are asking, as well. If you are confused about something, this is a good way for me to learn how to explain things to others. Perhaps together with can figure out a way to avoid confusion in the future.

As an online marketer, I strive in helping others. If you have questions, send them to I will get back with you as soon as possible. Hopefully, together we can figure out a solution.

SideTick - Easy Free Money

Making money online can be an adventure. It is an unhappy reality but some people will never make a dime online. When a program comes along that is allowing the average person to make money, I want to share it with the world. SideTick is a Free to Join social community, which allows you to make a little money on your own efforts. NO recruiting is ever required. This is NOT a program that is going to make you tons of money. But, it IS a program which allows you to generate a predictable income on your own efforts. By spending 2 to 5 minutes per day on SideTick, you can generate $25 per month. Not life changing money, but it is enough to pay my Traffic Wave bill. And, for some people, this is the first money they have EVER MADE online.
If you want to make more money, that is possible too.

Here is what some of the SideTick members have to say:

I'm from Ontario Canada and I love Sidetick because it is a fun way to make new friends and a little cash (I made 25.58 in 2 weeks). Why waste all day on Facebook making nothing when you can do the same here and earn something!

Hello from the Ducks in Oregon. I just love everything about Sideticks. the best group of people I have ever met online, the easiest & quickest way I found to earn,
Sideticks Rocks.

Jill from Virginia here... I've earned $100 so far here on Sidetick since August. It is the quickest & easiest money I've earned online so far.

Sunny South Carolina
Easiest $1 a day on the net. This is what so many people are looking for. Earn without recruiting, no hype, no long surveys, nothing to buy, nothing to sell. Other sites have made that claim but this is the only place I have found where they really deliver a check a month on your own efforts.

Good Morning from Sunshine in Georgia USA. I love Sidetick and the friends I have made here. And I have made money too, so far $75, and I have also just requested my next $25 payout.

Hello from Conway Arkansas. I am Misty. I love sidetick. I have made several new friends, made over $100 Christmas money this year, viewed tons of entertaining pictures and polls and I am definitely looking forward to next year. Can't wait to get to know so many new friends.

Bonsoir, from Quebec, Canada. SideTick is the place to be to meet people from all over the world and make new friends.
SideTick has so many applications and is filled with people willing to help each other.
Yesterday I asked for my 2nd payout... not bad for a free site!!!

Hi, I'm Teresa from Bakersfield California. SideTick is great and has helped me to earn enough money to get some decent gifts for my darling family for Christmas which excites me very much! I can't wait to see their faces when they unwrap their gifts and I plan on taking tons of pictures and posting them all!
