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

Published by Seely Clark — 4-8-2017 at 11:50 PM UTC

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


Otherwise you could be surfing 24/7 for very small return on your

time invested.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned for more-

I will be covering more about traffic exchanges and how to place 

banner and text ads on them-which are passive advertising that is running 24/7 for you.

Until we speak again, remember, Don’t Be Afraid, Live Free!

I live in Bangor, Maine and I worked 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! Over the last several years, it has started to come together for me. I am now able to work online full time It is AMAZING! Over the years I have learned a great deal about marketing on the Internet. I have learned many things that don’t work and and much that DOES work. 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.
