Do Traffic Exchanges Still Work?

Nov 21st 2010 at 7:44 AM

If you ever visit any of the forums that deal with Internet marketing you will see this question being asked. It is a  popular topic of discussion that usually brings many responses from those new to owning a Internet home business to those who have been in the business for several years.

If you follow my blog on a regular basis then you already know how I feel. And since I recently started my own manual traffic exchange some may think that my opinion is a little bias but here it is anyway.

Yes, manual traffic exchanges still work. In fact if used properly your Internet home business can see tremendous results.

Marketing on the Internet and traffic exchanges have changed over the years and those who claim that manual traffic exchanges no longer work are generally those who still have no idea how they work or still have not changed with the times.

The most important thing that anyone looking for success with a manual traffic exchange is to know your audience- fellow Internet home business owners.

Lets say your particular niche is shoes. You have a nice web site and need more traffic and decide to place that site in a traffic exchange. Everyone who views your website has one thing in common with you, they are trying to make money on the Internet so the chances of actually selling them shoes is minimal at best.

However, if there is an opportunity to become an affiliate selling shoes that’s what you should be promoting. Tell me why I need to sell shoes and how you will help me become successful.

The next big mistake people make? Not using a splash page. Lets use the shoe niche again. Instead of showing me your web site with dozens of shoes telling me I can make money selling them. Show me a simple page with just the basic info and asking me for my email address for more information.

Remember, you generally have about 6 seconds to capture my attention so make your splash page want me to act now.

Using these two simple techniques – know your audience and using a splash page will help you succeed with manual traffic exchanges.

And why you are at it check my new manual traffic exchange. (shameless plug  :lol: )
