Traffic Exchanges Archives
Traffic Exchanges are still used by many Internet Marketers to build targeted website traffic. They’re great if you want to get a lot of traffic in very short amount of time. I use them myself from time to time and have learned a bit about how to use them to be most effective.
This post is the continuation to my post yesterday which covered the basic idea of Increasing Web Traffic Using Traffic Exchanges.
When it comes to traffic exchanges, you must know that not all are created equal. That is, not all are the same, and not all are going to produce the same results. It’s just the nature of traffic exchanges, so don’t dwell on this fact.
Instead, let’s focus on what you can do to get the best results. I’m also going to point you to a resource that covers the top 100 traffic exchanges and also has a cool built-in system to help you build your downline.
If you plan on using a traffic exchange, it would be a good idea to know how popular it is and what kind of results you can expect to get out of it. Normally this would be hard to know without first using it and doing some testing. Well, thankfully we can know beforehand we dive in and waste our time on a traffic exchange that might not give us the results we’re looking for.
Let’s face it, if I’m going to spend my time surfing for credits, I want that to be time well spent and know I’m going to get some sort of return out of it. It doesn’t have to be a monetary return by any means, but I better see some positive results.
The best way to use traffic exchanges, in my opinion, is to promote a splash/squeeze page that builds your email list. That’s what I do, and that’s what most all other marketers are going to tell you.
Now, perhaps maybe you have a brand new, never before seen system, and you’re trying to get some exposure to it. If you can create a catchy headline or have a very short sales page, then yeah, you might have a chance.
But, I would say your focus should be to build your email list and get more subscribers that you can promote your business opportunities to. That’s the first MUST in using traffic exchanges effectively.
The second thing you need to do is know which traffic exchanges are hot. For that, we have Affiliate Funnel’s Ranking Report. This report ranks the top traffic exchanges based on user experience and user votes. It also shows other important stats… you can check out the report to see what they are.
So now you know what you should be promoting, and you know which traffic exchanges to promote it on. The last thing you need to do is test, test… oh, and test. Test your results with each traffic exchange and make sure your work is paying off in the end.
Traffic exchanges are a great way to increase web traffic. If you’re not familiar with what traffic exchanges are, they’re basically a website where you “surf” other member’s web pages in exchange for credits. The credits you accumulate are used to show your web pages to other members.
The concept is very simple. Most traffic exchanges also make use of banners and links that you can show to other members using your credits. The amount of credits you earn will depend on the ratio that is used, but this varies per traffic exchange. And, many give out bonus credits or freebie credits to members.
Traffic Exchanges can be used to bring in targeted traffic to your web pages. There is a time limit on how long members have to view a web page, so this is your chance to get your offer seen by hundreds if not thousands of potential prospects. The minimum time is around seven seconds, with some traffic exchanges being as high as 15 seconds.
If you have a site or web page that could use an increase in web traffic, then traffic exchanges are a great way to get it. All it takes is signing up to the most popular exchanges and spending an hour or so surfing for credits.
You may be wondering what the popular traffic exchanges are. Well, that’s going to be explained in my next post when I discuss how to best use Traffic Exchanges and get maximum results for your efforts.
So, stay tuned for my next post!
