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.

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!

    This is fantastic man, great stuff. I love the points and really appreciate you spreading the word about Sweeva.

    Thanks for everything Jerry, this is a fantastic checklist for new and old members of Sweeva!

    Excellent Sweeva tips! I consider myself a pretty veteran Sweever at this point but even I saw something in the tips I’m going to do differently. Good job!

    PS I missed TE Live (if it was even on LOL) due to a family emergency last night that kept me up all night and I just woke up…. but your email video was AWESOME!

    I have really got to hurry up and get MOVED and get my stupid broken teeth fixed so I can start playing around with video too. LOL.

    Jerry, great information! I’m a member but (don’t tell anyone), I’ve never really used the site. I had no idea there is so much neat stuff there. It is definitely on my list now of things to do, maybe even today! Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge. BTW… loved the video!

    TE Live started with a rant from Jon about a guy who posted on IM Faceplate that “Sweeva is the Hugest Flop in Internet History-IF you are looking for actual business.” Perfect timing for my new post! Tim showed up late and believe it or not the rest of the show was about blending.

    Sweeva is still a mystery to me – the bidding system is outrageous, to say the least!. The comments are nice to see and my sites do well. The thumbs up, thumbs down and unsure that you have to do with the same sites a zillion times does seem redundant.

    One good note. Your pic on the Video is fabulous – better than the goofy graphic one.

    These are great tips! I haven’t had much success with Sweeva, but that’s because I’ve been doing things wrong. I think with these tips, I can tweak my efforts and get a much more responsive experience.

    Thanks Jerry!

    Jerry, thanks for a great post. Like Nina I’ve been a little baffled about how to actually use Sweeva. This gives me some things to try out.

    The video was quite a surprise. I almost didn’t recognize you without your glasses.

    Hey Jerry, loved the article. I’m sure we’ll give you a link. We were planning to do some videos on Sweeva anyway so we can give you a link to “get more Sweeva tips from Jerry” or whatever. Let me know if that’s ok.

    Thanks Jerry well done as usual
    I have to do some over done house cleaning on my sites comments too haha
    I find the bids are pretty high when Sweeva offers a good deal on credits so I like to wait a while (ok Im a cheapo)

    Hey I saw you direct someone on Sweeva to this page so I had to click out of curiosity.. excellent guide, these are all great suggestions!

    Only one I would add is to let your credits build up, if you can get enough to take a full day I would do it because that means you will be a lot more likely to get a trophy which gives you lots of credits and xp as well as makes your page look better to people who see it, increases conversions

    ohh. I didn’t realize you got credits/xp for winning a trophy. I only have one and that was from before Sweeva actually launched. I may have to try for one of those. Thanks!
