You know ever since the first traffic exchanges came about in the mid 90's people have been predicting that they would become extinct in short order. Yet, these programs continue to hang around despite criticism that they "do not work for anyone". If that were indeed true then these advertising sources would have died out not long after they were originally spawned.
Here are the facts, I know of several online marketers that make well into the six figure mark using traffic exchanges as a major part of their advertising strategy. People like James Grandstaff, Robert Puddy, and Jon Olson are making tremendous incomes by using advertising and marketing methods that take advantage of the strengths of manual traffic exchanges. This isn't hype or fiction, these are real people making real incomes through their advertising.
Here are some reasons why using quality manual traffic exchanges are excellent advertising resources:
- You have real people viewing your website.
- The people that are viewing your website are people that are primarily interested in earning an income online.
- These people are largely interested in resources that may help them create a business or make higher affiliate commissions.
- They are a captive audience.
- 90% of traffic exchange marketers do not know how to effectively market their products or services. If you can crack this code you can leap ahead of your competition and start building a list of customers and begin making money quickly.
I started building my list of subscribers with traffic exchanges about 15 months ago and have built a subscriber base of about 3800 people in that short time. Probably 60% of these that joined were from a traffic exchange of some kind.
I am currently making an income of approximately $700-800 per month through my list and my traffic exchange marketing.

It took me months to find the right combination's of things to learn how to begin to really make money online. I am constantly refining methods to make it easier, less time consuming, and more efficient so that I can make money at a faster rate.
Traffic exchanges are not dead, they are alive and well! The competition among exchanges is fierce and results are the yardstick that will determine which survive and which will not. Those that constantly bring in new members with fresh eyes to view your opportunity are the ones that will survive. Those that do not will be gone within one, maybe two years.
