New Time-Bonus Ads at SOTAM

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Fifth of July!

I am a few days late with this but over the weekend State of the Art Mailer quietly unveiled a new feature on their site that has been long in the works.  I am talking about their new “Time-Bonus Ads” which I will show you below.

If you are not familiar with State of the Art Mailer they are a unique viral list building site which is one of the most responsive advertising sites that I use.

One of the features that makes State of the Art Mailer so unique is that they offer their members the ability to participate in a profit-sharing pool where they share some of the money the site earns with their members as a reward for being active on the site.  Being active really just means reading the emails that other members send which is something most of us are doing anyways but offer this extra incentive means that State of the Art Mailer will typically bring you more traffic than any other mailer.

The new time-bonus ads work in a similar way.  By being active and reading emails you can now earn “time” credit that can be used to display a banner ad on their site and on the sites of other members participating in the program over a period of time.

You can also earn more time by displaying their widgets on your own pages.

Here’s a sample widget:


By displaying these widgets on your splash pages or blog you not only earn time credits but you can also get ranked on their page showing the top participating sites. If you click the click the number of “networked sites” under the banner you will see what I mean. Having your site listed on this page is also a good way to create back links to your site which of course the search engines love.

The time-bonus ads feature was supposed to be released at the time State of the Art Mailer launched but due to some programming complexity it has taken until now for it to be released.

So far this looks like an excellent way to earn some extra hands-free traffic to your sites. The banner I added has been running for about 2.5 hours and has already received 622 views with 2 click-thurs so it is definitely working.

It’s good to see that the owners of State of the Are Mailer are not taking a relaxed stance to their mailer but are actively trying to make it even better. This is the kind of stuff I like to see and I admit that I don’t see it enough in the safelist industry.

If you are not already a member of State of the Are Mailer definitely give this one a try. You won’t be disappointed.

The Traffic Button

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Monday!

Over the last year or so a few of my marketing buddies have started referring to me as “Mister Safelist”.  While I obviously love marketing with safelists there is another form of free advertising that has been bringing me better  results.

Can you guess what that is?

Today Mike Purvis, who is the owner of two if the largest of these types of programs is launching a brand new training site which I am very happy to be a part of.

You can check it out here:
http://getrichwithjerry.com/recommends/thetrafficbutton

The Traffic Button is a free report that is broken up into three distinct training modules.  The first module will introduce you to the source of this amazing  free traffic.  The other modules will show you how to focus this traffic and how to start profiting from it.

This is exactly the stuff I use every day but explained in a really easy to follow guide that anybody can understand.

And of course, it’s free!

I just finished watching the video in the third module (yes, there is video too)  and let me just say… it’s good!

Module one is available right now.

You will receive an email when module two becomes available but for now read and digest the first module and start putting this stuff into action today!

Last week I sent out a mailing to my list on behalf of Brett Phillips and John Guanzon about the relaunch of their program TEReports.

In addition to adding two new products and twice as may new squeeze pages for upgraded members TERports now offers a squeeze page for free members.  This is a great way for free members to start building their list using free traffic exchange programs.

One of my subscribers replied to my email with a questions about using traffic exchanges and squeeze pages.  I thought I would share my response here.

Hi Jerry. I have been receiving your emails for some time now. I like the info but I need some clarity. How do I get on the traffic exchanges, and how will anyone find my squeeze page? I have a network marketing business and I would like to reach lots and lots of people, but I am not sure how. How can traffic exchanges and squeeze pages help me?

Hey Paul.

That’s a pretty big question but i’ll do my best to reply here.

First, to get on the traffic exchanges just pick one and join it.

You can start with any of these:
http://affiliatefunnel.com/top5te.php?rid=6698

They are all free but if you upgrade to a paid membership you’ll get more traffic for less work.

There are lots of guides out there about using traffic exchange but most of it is pretty self-explanatory:

1. Visit other member sites to earn credits
2. Spend your credits to show your site to other members

Using a traffic exchange is a great way to expose your squeeze page to thousands of new people.

It is important to remember though that the traffic you get from traffic exchanges is inscentivized (I know, big word).  Basically, that means that most people are only coming to your site because they want to earn credits to show their own site.  Your squeeze page should directly target these people and hopefully be interesting enough to stand out in the crowd.

It helps to have your own product to give away as an incentive for surfers to subscribe to your list.  If you don’t have your own product then you can use any of the free ones provided by TERports.  They all work really well in traffic exchanges.

Once you start building your list you have the opportunity to build a relationship with the people on your list and to potentially sell to them over and over again.

That’s sorta the simplified version but hopefully you get the gist of it.

If you need more details… just ask!

Ah traffic exchanges.

Say what you want about these free traffic programs but you won’t find another niche of Internet marketing where there are so many successful people willing to help other struggling marketers for free.

I have met some amazing people in the traffic exchange community.  Probably the best thing I ever did for my business was to start attending the online conferences at Affiliate Funnel, SWAT Traffic and Traffic Exchange Live.  These conferences have given me the opportunity to learn from some extremely successful marketers and also to also get to know them on a personal level as well.

One of the guys I met recently at Traffic Exchange Live is John Holmes who just took over the ownership of SWAT Traffic.  James hosts a Blog Talk Radio show on Internet marketing.

For the past week James has been interviewing some of the biggest names in the traffic exchange industry in a series called “Discover Traffic Exchanges”.  The last interview aired yesterday but thankfully all of the shows have been archived so you can listen to them whenever it is convenient for you.

Here’s the full list of interviews:

Episode 125: Tim Linden of StartXchange  >> Listen Here
Episode 126: Tony Tezak of Tezak Traffic Power >> Listen Here
Episode 127: Open Session  >> Listen Here
Episode 129: Randy Ritter of Top Flight Traffic  >> Listen Here
Episode 130: Marc Eglon of Jetstream Traffic  >> Listen Here
Episode 131: Guido Nussbaum of Traffic Witch >> Listen Here
Episode 132: John Guanzan of ThumbVu  >> Listen Here
Episode 133: Jon Olson of I Love Hits  >> Listen Here
Episode 134: Kym Robinson of Traffic Showdown  >> Listen Here
Episode 136: Lynn McCutcheon of Traffic Pro-X  >> Listen Here
Episode 137: Paul Kinder of Traffic Splash >> Listen Here

Seriously, go listen to these!

In any other industry you would find these interviews packaged and sold together for hundreds or even thousands of dollars.  You can click the links right now and go listen to these interviews for free!  They are great to listen to while you are working and I guarantee you will gain some valuable knowledge about these owners, the traffic exchange industry, and how to run your own successful online business.

There is a lot more to this business than just getting your links in front of as many people as possible.  Start taking some action and get to know who your fellow Internet marketers are.  It won’t cost you a dime and you will be amazed by how far you can go with just a little help from the people who have been where you are now.

Top 12 Sweeva Tips and Tricks

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Now that Sweeva has passed the 20,000 member mark I thought now would be a good time to share some of my best tips and tricks to help people maximize their Sweeva experience.

Not a member of SweevaJoin here.

Top 12 Sweeva Tips and Tricks

1. Read the FAQ –  Sweeva is a unique program combining the elements of social networking and free traffic exchange programs.  The more you understand how the system works the easier it will be for you to take advantage of all the features it has to offer.

2. Update Your Profile – Sweeva is a social site.  That means that other members are going to be just as interested in who you are as they are about what you are promoting.  Keep your profile updated and don’t forget to upload your photo to Gravatar.

3. Organize Your Websites – Every page you submit to Sweeva will be visible on your profile.  Even if you don’t plan to spend any credits promoting a page it’s a good idea to have a list of your sites that can be viewed by other members.  Tip: Add your sites with the Sweeva toolbar to earn toolbar loyalty points.

4. Add Quality Feedback – Sweeva gives you the ability to receive instant feedback on any pages that you are promoting.  By leaving quality comments on other people’s sites you are not only earning experience points for yourself but you are also helping to get yourself recognized as a valuable member of the Sweeva community.

5. Add Profile Comments – Check out some of the profiles of other members and post a personal message on their page.  Ask them about their sites or just introduce yourself.  Obviously don’t spam them with your offers but take advantage of this opportunity to network with other members.

6. Support Your Downline – If you refer a new member to Sweeva post a message on their profile to welcome them.  Let them know that you are available to help them if they need it.  Remember, the more active your Sweeva referrals are the greater your rewards.

7. Strike While the Iron is Hot – Regardless of how many credits you bid your site will only be seen by however many people are surfing at the time it is shown.  The number of people surfing varies throughout the day but you can get a good idea of when Sweeva is most active by looking at the daily stats. You can also see how many people are currently online by looking at the “Previous Site” numbers at the bottom of the members area.  Wait until there is a good sized crowd of people surfing before you show your site to maximize your page’s exposure.  Tip: Activity tends to go way up right after the owners send out an email update.

8. Conserve Your Credits – If you plan on surfing Sweeva for awhile try adjusting your bids to see how low you can go.  It usually takes about 10 minutes to find out if your bid has been accepted.  Don’t overbid unless you really want to get your site seen now.

9. Engage Your Guests – My favorite way to use Sweeva is to be present when my site is being shown.  This lets me personally welcome people to my page and let them know that I am there if they have any questions.  Be social.  Thank people if they say something nice.  Give out stars.  Have fun with it and reap the rewards.

10. Clean Your Comments – This might seem controversial but I delete unwanted comments from my pages before they are shown.  Negative comments are fine because it gives me a chance to interact with people but I would rather people only see the quality comments on my page.  A page full of people posting “ok” and “good” does nothing to benefit you.  It’s no different than tidying up your home before you invite over company.  Delete the junk from your comments to make sure the important comments can be seen.

11. Upgrade Your Membership – If you can afford it the upgraded Sweeva membership is one of the best deals around.  Not only will you earn greater commissions from your downline but you will also earn credits and XP faster than free members.

12. Be Creative – Sweeva is your social networking community.  You can make it into whatever you want it to be.  Think of new ways to interact with other members.  Try out a new splash page.  Record a video.  Have a contest.  Be social.  It’s your Sweeva.  Have fun with it!

What do you think?  Got any other suggestions?  Post them in the comments below.

As I mentioned a few days ago I want to start doing more reviews of individual safelists, viral list builders, and whatever other programs I have been using lately.

The first site I want to review is “A State of the Art Mailing System“.  State of the Art Mailer is a relatively new safelist created by Jay Pause and Brad Webb which launched a few months ago.

A State of the Art Mailer System appears to be using a unique mailer script.  I would say it’s more of a safelist than a viral list builder but there are number of unique features that makes State of the Art Mailer stand out from other sites.

One of the things you will notice is that when you join you are first asked to look at 5 websites belonging to other members before continuing.  I guess this is the “viral” aspect of the program because when you refer people your ad gets displayed in the 2nd position for your downline members to view and when they refer people your ad appears in the 3rd position.  Upgraded members can also have their ads randomly displayed in the other positions.  This is supposed to generate hands free traffic to your pages.  I’ve never been crazy about these kinds of systems but whatever.  I have referred 2 people and my pages have so far gotten 8 hits.

You only have to do this when you first join.  Otherwise you get presented with a login offer from Jay and Brad along with an advertiser’s full-page ad.  You can earn credits if you view the full-page ad for 20 seconds or you can skip it and go right into the site.

The members area first appears a little confusing with 20 different menu options being presented to you.   The most important items are right at the start though with “Mail Now” being the very first.

So what makes State of the Art Mailer special?

SOTAM uses a unique mailing method called the “Button Escalation System” which rewards active members with the ability to send their ads to more members.  It’s a little confusing but there’s a really good video on the site which explains it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDG3Ui8RMJ4

Basically when you start out as a free member you can email 500 members every 7 days.  However if you are active and read enough credit emails from other members you can get bumped up to higher level buttons which let you reach more members.

You can also upgrade your membership which gives you automatic access to the higher buttons as well as the ability to email every 3 days instead of 7.  I purchased the 5000 button upgrade when I joined and so far have had no trouble reaching the 7500 button which allows me to email almost the entire membership every 3 days.

It’s been about 2 months since I joined and so far the results have been excellent. They even post live mailing stats in the members area so that you can see exactly how well the system is working.

According to my own personal stats from last month I received 3,430 visitors to my splash pages which resulted in 13 new sign-ups to my program.  That’s a pretty decent conversion rate but the fact that a site this new is producing numbers like this is very impressive.

There’s a bunch of other unique features such as the “profit sharing pool” for active members (I earned a whopping $2.09 last month) as well as an “instant recruiting” system which apparently is still being worked on and hasn’t been added to the site yet.

Overall I am very impressed with the State of the Art Mailer.  The site isn’t real pretty but the results are what counts.  I think Jay and Brad have created something really unique here and I am looking forward to what they have planned for the future.

Happy Tuesday!

Sorry I have been a little bit quiet lately.  There honestly hasn’t been a whole lot going on.  But today I have some pretty big news.  It’s a brand new program that just launched this morning from my buddies Paul Kinder and Scott Martin (yes, I really do know all these people).

It’s called TE Command Post!

Paul and Scott have designed and built a site that I think fills a HUGE gap in the traffic exchange market. It’s something that surfers have needed for years without ever really knowing it.

TE Command Post allows you to:

* Command Your Credits
* Control Your Time
* Cash In Cool Commissions On 24/7 Autopilot
* All With Push Button Simplicity Right Now!

And the best bit – yep, it’s free!

Here’s everything you will get if you join today…

* Up to the minute account information for every listed exchange almost instantly.

* How many credits you have waiting to be assigned

* How many credits you have already assigned

* Which url’s are running low on credits

* High converting Affiliate Tools designed to build your downlines fast and bring you passive recurring affiliate commissions for TE Command Post and many other traffic-related sites

* TWO downline builders to get you passive referrals.

* Your links appear in Paul’s emails so you get to lay back and let an email master make you commissions!

Now check this out:

TE Command Post 1

That’s a screen shot from inside my TE Command Post account.  I had no idea I had so many unassigned credits laying around!  But TE Command Post found them for me.  Now I can easily login to each of those accounts and assign all of my credits.

And it also works with your banner and text ads…

TE Command Post 2

That’s how many unassigned banner impressions I had.  Wow!

BUT… there is an absolutely HUGE list of extra features for upgraded members too (I know because I am using them).

PLUS… a special launch promotion where you can lock in up to 88% discount – secured for life!

Highly recommended!

btw, Scott and Paul are not saying they will start charging. That’s bogus! They really are happy to share their own personal system that has helped with their success and you will always be able to get it free but…

The special launch discount is expected to sell out quickly and will only be available for a few short days!

So join free or grab yourself a real bargain,

Either way you won’t regret it!

Jump Start Method Map

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Saturday!

I wasn’t planning on posting anything today since I figured everybody is going to be taking a break for Easter…

… but I couldn’t wait to share this!

I just finished watching this brand new video from Dax Aurand called “Jump Start Method” which is all about getting free traffic for your sites… and it kinda blew me away.

The video is only 20 minutes long but it took me a little longer to watch because I kept stopping it to try out some of the tricks he was suggesting.

This stuff is awesome!

I’ll probably be spending the rest of the day exploring all these new traffic generation techniques.

Do yourself a favor and set aside a little time today to watch this video. You will be happy you did.

Hell Froze Over at I Love Hits

Author: Jerry Iannucci

Happy Saturday!

I usually don’t promote individual traffic exchanges.  Especially ones that have been around for as long as I Love Hits.  But big things are going on at ILH and if you advertise with TEs you need to know about this.

First, there is the new addition of bracket surfing at I Love Hits. I’m proud to say I had a small hand in this when the idea came up one day in TELive.  The way it works is every day you are paired up against another surfer and you compete head-to-head to rack up the most clicks in one day.

It’s very fun and very addictive.  Jon is even giving away a Sony Flip HD to the top surfer this week.

Check it out:
http://www.ilovehits.com/?rid=24492

Second, if you are already a member of ILH you should know that Jon has reset the one-time-offers.  This means you have one last chance to pick up Jon’s insane “Lifetime Upgrade” before he raises the price tomorrow.

I grabbed the lifetime upgrade yesterday.

It’s worth every penny!

http://www.ilovehits.com/?rid=24492

Finally, for years ILH has had the reputation of being the only traffic exchange that doesn’t pay out commissions.  No more!  ILH members can now earn commissions from referring new members to the site.

So if you are already a member of ILH make sure you login to the site today for your last chance at the amazing lifetime upgrade!

If you are NOT a member of I Love Hits… what are you waiting for?
