In Search of Traffic?

Posted by on Aug 4, 2012 in Blog, Traffic | 3 comments

When I originally started online, I had a product to sell and guess what nowhere to promote that product.

I was completely lost and my sponsor, well of course she was of no help at all. Her only advice to me for this “Vitametavegamin” concoction was to market it to my friends and family. In all honesty, I did believe in the vitamins and on a personal level felt much better while taking this product.

Internet junkie that I am, I searched online for free traffic.  Bingo, finding a prominent Traffic Exchange in my search I was off and running, at least I believed so. This Traffic Exchange had 25,000 members or so they proclaimed. After nearly a year, never receiving any referrals to the Traffic Exchange or any customers for my product from the site it was time to rethink my strategy. Sometimes it is easy to get caught in all the hype and get distracted from your real goals. I had become what most would call a surfaholic!

Rethinking my strategy and networking with other Traffic Exchange members, brought me results.

The long and short of the story, traffic exchanges do work!

  1. A Traffic Exchange will bring you immediate traffic. You are not required to be an SEO expert when first starting out.
  2. A Traffic Exchange is a free or relatively inexpensive medium for testing your ad campaigns.
  3. A Traffic Exchange is a learning experience and in today’s world a social experience.
  4. A Traffic Exchange can earn you a residual income(cash) when you refer other members to the site and they upgrade or purchase advertising.

We will delve more into the subject of Traffic Exchanges in future articles.

  1. You make some valid observations.
    The lure of free traffic should not be confused with easy sign ups. I think everyone who starts out is confused by this, or, at least I know I was.
    The truth to the matter is traffic exchanges are an advertising venue and you must target your audience.
    Great stuff Cheryl, I look forward to future posts on this subject.

  2. Thanks James for the kind words. Life is a learning experience, as is business. I honestly believe if we keep learning, we can keep growing.
