Author: Jerry Iannucci

Power Surf Central is a joint venture between the traffic exchange programs Hit Safari, Soaring4Traffic, and RealHitz4u.  The three program owners have teamed up to offer their members a reward system for the daily usage of their programs.

Here are a few of the features included with your Power Surf Central membership:

  • Your own customizable profile which you can share with the world

    many features on the site including spotlight ads, credits, banner impressions
    text impressions and more being added all the time
  • An ever growing site that will continue to train its members to keep them
    ahead of the curve

Power Surf Central also functions as a downline builder for you as any new members that you refer will be required to join Hit Safari, Soaring4Traffic, and RealHitz4u to take advantage of their membership.

As more and more surfers are looking for extra rewards for their time spent surfing it makes sense for these three traffic exchange owners to join forces to offer Power Surf Central to their members.  Each of the featured traffic exchanges offer their own large and active memberships which together can be used to help your ads reach a much wider audience.

I do love me some personal branding.

Why?

This is a very competitive business.  Anything you can do to give yourself an advantage and make your sites get noticed will make a big difference.  One of the easiest ways to do this is to personalize your business with your own unique brand.

Your unique personal brand can be your own picture.

It doesn’t get any more unique than that.

The guys at TimTech know this and have been championing the idea of personal branding for years.  Now they have taken personal branding to a new level with the relaunch of their ThumbVu traffic exchange.

The new ThumbVu design is clean and fresh and it offers a new concept in traffic exchange surfing.  Instead of viewing random websites for hours on end ThumbVu members are now presented with a list of other members giving you the option of choosing who’s website you want to view next.

This is a great opportunity to connect your personal brand with whatever you are promoting.

Members also have the ability to leave feedback on your pages.

Do you think having this kind of feedback displayed every time your site is shown will help you get more sign-ups?

You bet it will.

Lots of people will be flocking to ThumbVu this week to check out all of the new changes.  If you are already a member now would be the perfect time to login and assign some credits to your sites (and to your personal brand).

If you’re not already a member of ThumbVu… what are you waiting for?

Keeping Track of Your TE Commissions

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and Happy Sunday!

About a year and a half ago I did a video walk through of a new site at the time called TE Command Post.

You can check out the video here:
http://www.getrichwithjerry.com/video-review-of-my-te-command-post/

TE Command Post continues to be one of the most useful services for traffic exchanges surfers that I have ever used.  When you are a member of dozens of traffic exchanges like I am it becomes extremely helpful to keep track of all of your credits on all of your traffic exchanges with just one click.

This past week TE Command Post added a new feature which makes it an even more invaluable tool… the ability to track all of the commissions traffic exchanges owe you.

Check this out:tecommandpost Keeping Track of Your TE CommissionsAccording to TE Command Post I had over $400 in commissions owed to me that I had not yet received.  Now some of these sites do pay monthly and I just have not been paid yet this month.  List Surfing is a good example of this.  But many other sites require you to login and manually request your commissions be paid.  If you don’t know you are owed commissions you never get paid.

Just another reason why I believe TE Command Post is an essential tool for all Internet marketers who are promoting with traffic exchanges.

If you are not already a member then sign-up, select your traffic exchanges, and find out immediately who owes you money.

List Surfing Video Review

Author: Jerry Iannucci

It’s been a week since List Surfing re-launched and I decided now would be a good time to dust off the webcam and do a quick video review to show you how the site works.

Here it is…

Apologizes to Matt Koshko for getting his name wrong.  For the trivia buffs… an “oshinko” is a Japanese pickle.

List Surfing Re-Launches Today!

Author: Jerry Iannucci

You probably already know how much I love safelists…

but I also love traffic exchanges almost as much.

If there is anything that gets me more excited than the thought of my two favorite ad sources melting together into a mess of ooey gooey yumminess…

It’s today’s re-launch of List Surfing!

List Surfing takes the best qualities of a free list mailer and combines them with a manual traffic exchange to create a unique  marketing website that you can use to advertise anything you want!

List Surfing is not entirely new.

Perhaps you’re already a member?

The original List Surfing concept was created awhile back by my good friend Darren Olander.  Darren recently gave me a peek inside the new List Surfing site and I must say…

The new List Surfing BLOWS AWAY the old site!

If you can imagine taking some of the social concepts of traffic exchanges like Thumbvu and Sweeva and combining them with a unique viral list mailer like Adcheiver (also owned by Darren) you will start to understand why this new site is so cool.

But you really gotta try it for yourself…

Don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of all of the traffic List Surfing is going to be generating with this major re-launch.

I’ll be there advertising all day.

Be sure to say hi.

Now that Easter is over things have finally quieted down a bit in the giveaway world.

The biggest event happening right now is the new program from Guido Nussbaum called “Traffic Gifts“.

Traffic Gifts is not your typical giveaway event.  It’s more of a mix between a giveaway event and a free traffic exchange.  While most events require you to sponsor other members to earn your rank with Traffic Gifts you can “surf” your way to the top.

It’s pretty cool.

If you haven’t tried it yet please click here to check it out:

I Could Have Durfed All Night

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Hello and happy Saturday!

This past week I recorded my first durfing video.

What is durfing?

I guess I should back up a little.

There is this certain traffic exchange that I spend a lot of time at called Sweeva.  One of the things that makes Sweeva unique is that all members view the same page at the same time.

Every so often the guys at TimTech will throw a “Sweeva surfing party” where we all get online at the same time to look at and critique each other’s sites.  It’s a great way to get honest opinions about what works and what doesn’t work in a traffic exchange environment.

So a few weeks ago John Gunazon decided to take advantage of the increased surf activity at Sweeva and post a video of himself dancing and surfing at the same time.  Thus “durfing” was born.

You can read John’s blog post and watch his video here:
http://www.johnguanzon.com/blog/2011/04/durfing/

This was quickly followed up with a durfing video from Lynne Sherman:
http://lynne-sherman.com/?p=139

Pretty silly, right?

But that’s exactly the point!

Traffic exchanges are a great way to quickly and easily get your pages seen by a very large audience…  but they can also be extremely boring!  How many times can you look at the same generic affiliate pages promoting the same generic business opportunities before you completely tune out and stop paying attention?

Good luck ignoring John and Lynne’s durfing videos.

John’s video was completely different from anything else out there.  It sticks out like a sore thumb which is exactly what you need to do if you want your pages to get noticed.

I decided to put this idea to the test and record my own durfing video.

Are you ready?

What has been seen cannot be unseen.  lol.

I linked the video to a squeeze page promoting my blog (you can see the squeeze page here) and spent about 2000 credits to have my site shown all day Thursday on Sweeva.  If I were buying credits that would have cost me about $7.00.

The result.. 8 new blog subscribers.  Not huge but I know there are already a lot of Sweeva members who are subscribed to my blog.

What did blow me away was the response the video received.

You can view some of the comments here:
http://www.sweeva.com/go/FBO

Generic affiliate pages rarely get many comment but people were practically falling over themselves to leave comments on my page. I also received over a dozen tweets from members and mentions on multiple blogs.

The point is that I got noticed.  The next time someone sees one of my pages they are going to say “hey, there’s that durfing guy!” and hopefully pay attention to what I am promoting.

And it’s so easy to do!

I spent about 15 minutes setting up lights and recording the video on my flipcam and I spent another 20 minutes making the squeeze page in AdKreator.  I did spend about 30 minutes inside Sony Vegas adding the text and tweaking the music levels but that was just me being a perfectionist.

The point is anybody can do this.

You don’t need to make a durfing video, just do something different.  Post your video upside down or record a very serious promo video while wearing last year’s Halloween costume.  Yes, it’s silly but it works.

Internet marketing doesn’t have to be boring.  Have fun and enjoy what you’re doing.  The results are sure to follow.

Viral Bonuses Launches Today!

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Saturday!

You don’t see too many big sites launching on a Saturday but today my good buddies Darren Olander and Jared Silver are opening the doors to their new site… and it’s full of affiliate landmines.

Don’t panic!

Affiliate Landmines are a GOOD thing.

It is the concept that your referrals will be fed into a multitude of other programs without ANY extra effort on your part.

The best part is.. with Viral Bonuses you get to do it by giving great value away!

And giving great stuff away… well it doesn’t get any easier than that.

Here’s how it works:

* Top website owners will provide you with valuable free offers such as advertising credits, membership upgrades, or other products.

(these are exclusive bonuses that people actually pay for, but Viral Bonuses members get them for free)

* Viral Bonuses keeps a running rolodex of these programs (10 at one time, swapping one new bonus in each week), where you get to plug in your affiliate IDs so your referrals will join these under you.

(and they’ve made extra precautions to ensure your downline DOES join under you)

* You can even claim these bonuses yourself… literally thousands of dollars  worth of quality stuff.

And it’s all 100% Gratis.

ClickTrackProfit vs TEProfits

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Monday!

I received a comment yesterday on one of my earlier posts about ClickTrackProfit asking if promoting CTP would conflict with their efforts to promote TEProfits.  The same topic came up earlier last week in a TELive and I thought it was worth discussing here.

Just so you know ClickTrackProfit and TEProfits are both essentially downline builders that target the traffic exchange industry.  Both programs have excellent online training and both can be used to build your TrafficWave downlines.

I think the biggest difference between the two programs is that TEProfits puts more emphasis on using TrafficWave to build your list than ClickTrackProfit does.  There are multiple squeeze pages within the TEProfits members area that you can promote as well as a 25 part email series that can automatically be loaded into your TrafficWave account.  If you are new to list building and want an easy system to help you get started then I highly recommend checking out TEProfits.

ClickTrackProfit on the other hand was designed to be super simple.  Although there is video training on how to use TrafficWave inside the members area the system itself revolves around creating your own custom splash page that you can promote in traffic exchanges to bring new members into the program.

Here’s my CTP splash page that I literally made in about 30 seconds:

http://trckrs.com/30698/

By advertising that link on the recommended traffic exchanges my hits are automatically tracked and when I have received enough traffic I can unlock additional features on the ClickTrackProfit website.  It’s actually pretty neat.

ClickTrackProfit uses Adkreator to create your splash page.  If you wanted to you could turn your splash page into a squeeze page by adding your own autoresponder code to Adkreator.  That would allow you to build your list and promote the CTP system at the same time.  Unfortunately at this time there are no official CTP autoresponder emails to accompany your page so you would be responsible for creating those yourself.

I should probably also mention that if you are not into list building you can promote TEProfits with their splash pages and benefit from just using it as a downline builder.  In that sense TEProfits and ClickTrackProfit are both very similar.

So to answer my reader’s question…  if you are already using TEProfits to build your list then you are probably better off just continuing to do what you are doing.  Yes, you can use ClickTrackProfit to build your list but it will take a little extra work on your part create all of your emails from scratch.

If the list building stuff is still over your head and you are just looking for a simple system to get more traffic and make money then ClickTrackProfit is a great place to start.  There are videos that lead your step-by-step through the system and the whole thing is very easy to setup.

What do you think?  ClickTrackProfit or TEProfits?
