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 Great Sweeva Widget Hunt

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I just had a crazy idea.

What if somebody made a list of web pages that display the Sweeva widget?

We would then have a list of sites that we could visit every day looking for “prize” widgets and the owners of those sites would benefit from the extra traffic as well as winning half of the prizes.

Here’s the list of sites I have found so far:

Just in case you don’t know, Sweeva is a brand new social marketing website that allows members to interact with each other while looking other member’s websites.  The Sweeva widget is a little piece of javascipt that you can add to your website which either shows the current site being displayed on Sweeva or it displays your own personal Sweeva stats.

Occasionally the Sweeva widget will turn into a “prize” widget that looks like this:

New Sweeva Prize Widgets

Author: Jerry Iannucci

I was hanging out in Traffic Exchange Live today where Jon Olson gave us an overview of the new prize widgets that went live at Sweeva today.

The Sweeva widget is a little javascript app that you can put on your website that either shows your personal Sweeva stats or a live thumbnail of the current page being shown on Sweeva.  You earn points every time your Sweeva widget is viewed and of course you get a referral if someone joins Sweeva through your widget.

Starting today the Sweeva widget will randomly start giving away prizes!  Instead of the usual content it will display a “Hidden Bonus” message and if you click it you will win the prize.  What’s cool is that not only does the person clicking the widget win a prize but the prize is split with the person displaying the widget.

This makes for a fun “easter egg hunt” that will hopefully get people looking at your page.  I know a bunch of us spent some time today visiting each other’s websites looking for prizes.

I have the Sweeva widget installed here on my blog.

Can you find it?

If you win a prize please post a comment below.

Refreshing the page won’t help but make sure you check the Sweeva widget everytime you visit my blog.  You never know when you will be the next winner.
