How to best leverage traffic exchanges (TEs) for your success...

Traffic exchanges were my first advertising online back in 2010
and I still use them today.
I am going to show you how to start with a small, low cost
advertising plan using the leveraging of traffic exchanges.
Here is how it goes...
Find five traffic exchanges that you like. Upgrade in these 5.
Most free memberships give you a 3:1 or a 2:1 surf ratio. This
means that you must view 2 or 3 other sites to get enough credit
for someone else to view your website or offer once. That is not good math for
your efforts. What you want to accomplish by upgrading is getting
a 1:1 surf ratio.
The upgrade being offered should offer you a 1:1 surf ratio or
better. Otherwise the upgrade isn’t going to be worth it.
What 1:1 surf ratio means is that for every website you view you
get one website credit towards people viewing your site.
TE upgrade costs range from $3.95/month up to $15/month or more
depending on the traffic exchange. Now- I am keeping this concept
low cost so I suggest finding 5 traffic exchanges that have a large active
membership base that will give you the most unique views possible for your efforts.
The upgrade you choose should be between 5 and 10 bucks per
Your other option is, if they offer it when you sign up, is to
take a lifetime upgrade offer. Some do and some don’t offer this.
If they do, and (only) if you can afford it, then take the lifetime upgrade.
This is good math because it’s advertising that you pay for once and
never have to pay for again. That’s a win win!
One important thing: you should ALWAYS be advertising using a lead
capture page. ALWAYS.
A lead capture page is where someone enters their name and email
for more information on your offer.
Then their name and email is in your auto responder and you can
follow up with them for as long as they are on your list.
A Word of advice: DO NOT spam them. Offer them tips tricks and
other offers that are congruent with the first offer that they signed up to see.
I had to learn that the hard way myself. I really shot myself in the foot when
I offered people opportunities that had nothing to do with their initial
interest that got them on my list.
If you don’t know how to sign up to a traffic exchange then check
out these two how to videos from my YouTube channel:

This next one is just some more details on signing up that I
forgot to mention in that first video.
This one is important, so be sure to watch all of it.

So once signed up and upgraded, you should be able to surf for
30 to 60 minutes on each traffic exchange per day and get a good
amount of credits so that you can get plenty of hits to your ads per day.
The great thing about traffic exchanges is that you can leverage
them well with these concepts.
If you are just a free member, or if you try to surf too many (even
ones you are upgraded at) it can be a real time sucker. Which you DON’T want.
You want to always be leveraging your time and effort when

About Seely Clark
My wife Elizabeth and I live in Bangor, Maine and I work full-time as a RN at a local hospital. In 2010 I started working online Part-time after my mother was disabled by a heart attack. I wanted to build extra income to help with her health care. What started as a way to make extra income has grown into a passion to build my Part-time business to the point that I can quit my full-time job and still keep all the bills paid. Over the years I have learned a great deal about marketing on the Internet. I have learned many things that don’t work and a few things that do. Over the last year, it has started to come together for me. One thing I have learned is that for me to succeed, I have to help others succeed. So now my focus is on teaching others what I have learned works so that they can avoid the money wasting struggles I went through and finally start making money on the Internet.
