Traffic Exchanges Live
If you have been on the internet for a while, maybe you have noticed that not to long ago Traffic Exchanges had faded out and not used or promoted very often. Traffic exchanges are making a comeback in a huge way and new ones seems to be popping up everyday. Some of them even have games to play while surfing. Traffic Exchanges live!
Recently I decided to experimented with different traffic exchanges and compare them to see what results were obtained. If nothing else, I would have done some advertising for free. After all isn’t that what this is all about, getting some “free” advertising?
Now the secret with traffic exchanges is that you need to sign up for a few and promote the traffic exchanges so that you build a down line. You will earn credits off your down line and get traffic even if you are not surfing. If one of your down line referrals purchase a credit package, most traffic exchanges will give a commission. Percentages of commissions vary from site to site, depending on what upgraded level or credit package you have purchased. Lifetime members generally get more of a commission than free members. Most traffic exchanges will have specials from time to time on lifetime memberships. It is to your advantage to purchase a lifetime membership when available.
Sometimes circumstances do not allow us to purchase a package of credits or a membership. If You find yourself in this category there is an alternative to advertising on traffic exchanges. You can surf the traffic exchanges in order to to get the credits needed to advertise your website or product. You can also surf multiple exchanges at the same time. The way this works is that you sign up for ten traffic exchanges. You need to also install a browser that uses tabbed browsing like Firefox. Then you open up ten tabs at the same time browsing each traffic exchange simultaneously in the same amount of time as what it would have taken to surf one website.
Before you can surf at all, You will need to log into your new exchange accounts and add your website. In order to add credits to your website most exchanges will want you to auto assign a certain percentage of your credits. You will add your site, then go to auto assign. Assign the amount of credits needed then go back to add sites to add credits to the website you want to advertise. Free Credits also vary from site to site. For Example PG Traffic gives a Free member 100 Credits and 100 Banner credits to use per month. While Millionaire Surf gives 200 Credits plus 50 banner credits. If you received no credits on sign up, then you will either need to purchase a credit package or surf for credits.
When adding your site do not make the fatal mistake of just putting in the URL of your website, or affiliate link. Believe me, you really DO NOT want to do that! Why? Because your fellow surfers will not have the time, or take the time, to read a whole website about an offer. They are surfing for credits so that they can advertise their own program, and only if your product leaps up and hits them in the face will they take any notice. In order to grab their attention you MUST use splash pages or squeeze pages that open a new window when clicked. There is a difference between a splash page and a squeeze page. A splash page is usually quite small in size – so it loads fast. It has a heading, perhaps a graphic or two and a ‘Click Here’ button or similar that will lead to your website or product offer. A squeeze page is very similar, but has an opt-in box as well to help you build your list. One of the better programs that I use to make squeeze pages and splash pages is Adkreator. It is very inexpensive to use and has many choices of styles and colors.
Ideally you would advertise a splash page which then opens to a squeeze or opt-in page which can be of any length, but which asks for the reader’s details. Using the splash page to squeeze page system is less likely to interrupt the surfer and therefore make them more likely to follow-through with your offer after they have completed there surfing. There’s nothing to stop you having as many splash pages as your membership allows and each one can lead to exactly the same offer page.
In addition, be sure to make use of the banner and text ads area which will be part of your membership. Together with your splash pages they will drive as many people as possible to your product or service. There’s a whole lot more to using traffic exchanges but used properly they are an extremely valuable tool at minimal cost for any online business.
