Cogs & Logs Tuesday Traffic Tales

cogs & Logs News Help imgWhen I first came on line, eons ago in case you wondered, I think I was compelled to join every Traffic Exchange going. At that time, think the ceiling was approximately 1000 of them but very few worth
taking the time to join.

Nevertheless, I ended up with 125 of them in my pandora’s box and went crazy trying to keep up with them all. We had surfing partners in those days that sort of helped the time pass on those terrible 3:1 and 5:1 sites. There were not a lot of them then, thank the powers that be and even fewer now.

Today, I could take those 125 and break them down into rotators and
spread them around. There is even a site or two that will allow you
to build them all under one roof if you join what they recommend as
well.

Why don’t I?

Companies go out of business as fast as they come on line. Rotators
are only as good as the dummy that fills them up! If you go off line,
if you leave a program, if you are no longer active if, if and more
ifs,that rotator is a thorn in your side and the program owners.

Control factor is another reason.

Today’s top 10 programs are history tomorrow. Not quite but close
enough if you follow hoopla. IF you do not vote continuously for
your favorite TE. If you do not use them enough or promote them
to create traffic. I think you get the picture.

Sufficient credits to keep rotators in full motion.

That is another reason I do not use them. IF it takes 100 views to
attract the attention of 10 people and out of that ONE might join me,
then how many credits do I need to keep live pages in each rotator?

You live in a dream world if you figure 122 credits will rotate
your 15 sites five or six times daily. Your rotator and your pages
are mixed in with thousands of other sites in each program. The fact
you use a rotator does not give you special privileges for every site
within to be rotated first.

IF you can buy credits, you are in a better position than the average
traffic exchange user. Because they are not upgraded; because they do
do list building; because their relationship with their members is
somewhere between earth and mars, they have to surf and surf hard
every day just to keep some of their sites in rotation.

Traffic Co-ops the new babies online

Not so new really.Been around for a lot of years, mainly to find what
they do now for Traffic Exchange users – create exposure and bring in
new conversions.

Do they work? I have listened to one smart cookie give his results
about co-ops. It did not turn my crank and make me run to use them.
How about you?

Everything we do online is to promote our favorite programs, whether
we are the owner or an affiliate, takes time and thought to make the
results we want happen. It all comes down to a series of small step
goals you can measure
, based on the well thought out plan. That plan
will be in continuous motion as you research and test, research and
test some more.

Do you have a working plan? Got some thoughts on this post? Share
your experiences. That is one powerful way to grow.

Cogs & Logs News Keeping You Informed

The journey that spells success is targeted to winSunday conference members learned being the CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of their business is an involved operation. While there are some duties you can and should outsource, the main brunt of success or failure, rests on the shoulders of the owner.

You miss out on a lot by not attending. Need help with SEO and SEM? Understanding what they are and how best to use them? How to improve your online business?

REMINDER: If you are a hosted member of ViralHost then connect immediately for help getting you updated and into the new system with the least amount of problems. ALL business begins with your website(s). Knowing what will need updating can mean your check is zero or improved.

Website issues: Got an account but your site sort of sucks? Time to look for some help? Sharon and sitebuilder might be your answer.

Do not attempt it if you already have a site underway. Let Sharon show you the ropes and improve your sites quickly.

Surf contests: Are you watching the winners circle? Are you in it? IF you receive awards from surfing our TEs, then watch your mail for notification on your status with the Guest Traffic Exchange. If you feel you may have won and receive no notification, then send them a support ticket.

ALL results from surfing our TEs as hosts, or with them as guests,will be posted in the Traffic Exchange Newsletter. We appreciate your support and try to be timely reporting your wins.

ISSUES? Surf please! If you win a solo or start (sponsor) page and do not know how to make good use of them, then connect. We are here to help you. Writing ads is not a science rather a learned action so the more you write the better you become. This is one place we(Fran) can help you excel!

TODAY Surf contest is with Speed-Train-Hits.
Great member site that gives you tons of credits for surfing AND cash as well. Surf our 10khits4unow as the host and we threw in Clickaholics so your monthly surfing improves your chance for a FREE ONE year upgrade.

Surfing the Big Dogs.  Some Traffic Exchanges are getting quite bloated. Their membership sizes are not working best for the members overall. Admin work on the pages is not exactly up to par.

Overly large pages that freeze browsers, consistent same pages that never turn over, and did you know … Some trackers drive your security nuts?  It will claim possible malware!  You need to take the chance and check these pages out. 2tkr and others create false positives. Best bet? Check around if you want a tracker that works for you, not getting you banned for virus claims that do not exist.

Question of the Week:

“I am upgraded, why should I surf?”  For the same answer, ‘you woke up this morning, why should you breathe?’

The question and response are not so far apart in reasoning. It is to keep going. If you are not seen in all those places you surf, if your pages and promos are old hat, then you are dying online. If you do not breathe when you wake up, the consequences can be much the same just a wee bit fatal.

Are You Being ‘DUMBED DOWN’ by life? When you see, hear, read about Government mismanagement, or children killing children, or hostilities as young people lay down
their lives in order to have better lives for others, it has to really shake you to the core.

But when the news is full of it, does it numb the senses? Create this oh dear, so sad feeling but no real need to change the status quo? To become involved with opinion and ready to join in somehow to make a responsible change? It just is not happening to you?

It can be much the same online working for something better and feeling so sad that it is not found.  Or when it is, appear too late to take the proper actions to solve your problems?

It really does not need to be that way. YOU count. YOU ARE so BE the best you can be. Do not take no for an answer. Ask and expect to be helped then pass on what you learn to those that follow you.

Have a super successful week.

Cogs & Logs- MORE on 10khits4unow Sponsorship

The journey that spells success is targeted to win10khits4unow Blog touched on sponsorship. Leadership, actually. That is something most new people are not taught is paramount to their intended success. Mainly because a lot of long time marketers just do not get the full picture either.

Born leaders are a rare breed. Most of us learn leadership qualities from our associations and grow via our experiences.

Leadership is 24/7 not when you feel like it.  Sponsorship is your training grounds to becoming a successful business builder and leader. So tell me, do you work as hard as you can in your business?  Are you a five-figure earner who understands, ‘slack off and you lose?’

List building is a sponsoring action. Many think throwing up a
blog, or a newsletter or offering some 7-day short form how to
wonder will build your list. It might. Might just overload it with
tire-kickers or lurkers who sign up for anything, but as far as
active subscribers to what you have to offer?

Big List Issues

The main one is how you connect with these new subscribers.
How you got them is the first issue in order to provide the
solutions they are looking for and to convert them to customers
if you do your job the right way.

That should suggest to you that ONE big list must therefore
become several specific lists that point to specific niche-style
interests.

The logic of that thought also means you do not write emails
to all your subscribers in the same vein.The problem with that
thought is that most TE downline mailers do NOT provide you with
a way to do that.

GoldenTip #1

Write a blog – consistently – dealing with the issues all of your
subscribers do or will face at one time or the other. Next use TEs
to promote your blog so that your downline, [ and new readers]
will learn what solutions you have to offer them.

Golden Tip #2

DAILY post to your FB timeline, something relative to what you
are trying to accomplish. SEND the kind of traffic to your blog
you are looking for. Retailer/dealer, eCommerce, B2B traffic.
It all will find you but only if you are out there.

Regardless of what you choose to do, remember to keep building
your list. One super way to do that? The weekly 10khits4unow
contest.

You cannot beat the ability to earn a 1yr diamond upgrade that
can be given to an active member that means …

  • being connected with subscribers
  • building active downline list
  • understanding how to work a TE
  • training downline to follow your lead

Are you committed to your own success? Some succeed because
they are destined to, but most succeed because they are
determined to.

Don’t forget to post your comments, come on back with your
results. What you share positions you with a very wide world of
Internet prospects.

How To Invest For Future Cash Payouts

Where desire meets action viralhost.comEarning a cash payout from Traffic Exchanges means there are specific qualifications that must be met.

  • Cash in provides Cash out
  • Paid upgrades provide operating cash
  • Sales of credit packages
  • $.30 per thousand sites viewed by paid upgrade

Most Traffic Exchanges allow upgrades to be paid from contest income
earning. Top placing in contests can earn you income. As can surfing
when a TE pays you $.03 per 100 sites surfed up to a maximum stated
– usually 1000 sites per day.

The above actions provide something in return for an action. It allows
a member to TRADE in on regular company earnings that normally have
been set up to give the cash strapped or new member a way to
upgrade.

That means cash in contests played and thus earned means spend on a
company product, credits or upgrade. NOT cash out.

This form of TRADE INCOME might also be considered BARTER INCOME.

It makes the ‘Paid’ members list look larger that it would be if each of
those members had to pay their way in.  That is because of a shift in
position from free member to pro level for the period of the earned
upgrade.

Freely awarded upgrades earned in contests provide NO INCOME IN
therefore, there is NO INCOME to go out.

Connecting with your sponsor – reading their mails, blogs etc and
replying, can keep you in the loop for faster income opportunity.

Learning all you can about the Traffic Exchange and following your
sponsor’s advice in how to properly use it, can help you grow yearly
income that provides steady monthly commission checks.

Don’t forget the Sunday conferences. Come in, say hello and talk to
us about your Traffic Exchange [TE] issues for answers. Finally, do
not forget to promote the TE. That IS how the company grows and how
you will earn the cash commissions available.

ONE SAD NOTE- BANNED!

This one action tells a lot about you I am sure you would prefer kept
quiet. ONLY way to get BANNED is do not read TOS , Contest Rules,
the WARNING you view my page, I view yours so the Click the right
icon page brings up ‘congratulations [says verification on green page]
you may continue surfing.

Accidents do happen Ie too many TEs in surf windows – so read the
info at the top of where you add your URLs or on TOOLS page to look
for the cheat page approximately every 15 sites.

Get BANNED? Send in a support ticket asking to be reinstated.

Have a profitable week!

Funnel Me Once, Funnel Me Twice, Funnel Me Crazy

p_133Landing pages, sometimes called squeeze pages, are undoubtedly the fastest way to build a list. With a few ghosts left out, it could be a totally targeted list.

Funnel Me Crazy

It used to be, and in many cases still is, the adverts promote and the results get dumped into a huge all encompassing funnel. That still leaves a ton of follow up in order to find the people you really need to follow your lead.

These prospects were hardly what you called targeted. At least
not down to the point of becoming hungry customers anxious to
convert.

How can I create a hungry list of targeted buyers and save
myself time, money and frustration as I develop the process?

The media won’t change but how you test to use the media will.
For instance try some of the following:

  • Create some buzz
  • create a LCP with ONE qualifying request on it
  • Make the copy speak. I don’t want you if you are broke.
  • If you cannot speak English I can recommend other offers.

If you are prepared to work hard, follow my lead and upgrade after you
confirm your intent and email are real, Then I WANT YOU!“( don’t forget
to ask for their name and email address on this sign up form.

A splash or LCP of this nature and attitude will separate the has-beens
and wannabes from the serious; hopefully, providing you with targeted traffic.

Before you upload your masterpiece, ask yourself the regular questions,
then add a couple more.

  • Got a clear grabber Headline
  • A short lead capture form, tied to an auto-responder
  • A head turning Sub Headline
  • A relevant image
  • Social Media Integration

While the above is the short concise route to targeted traffic via
funnel marketing, there are a few more important points to keep in
mind. As you learn about some of them that attract your interest,
try to keep in mind, it is not the number of members on your list
but number of subscribers who easily become repeat customers based
on the targeted drawing power of your LCP.

It’s ALL In The Name

Marketing funnels are bound to be renamed as a more centered contact
with more reasons for creating them. Moving into current times, it
may become the Digital Marketing Funnel -its purpose to allow
companies to attract and retain customers via the Internet.

That would mean EXPOSURE plays a leading role Both INBOUND via
every media that produces RELATIVE CONTENT as well as ADS using
all forms of MEDIA to get the message out there.

Keep in mind that in spite of all the Digital Buzz hitting the
net these days, it certainly is safe to assume this is all new
to many players thus DISCOVERY from a few visits to finally
consuming content they will need.

All the heavy players who recognize a hot new trend will leverage
their actions for a bigger piece of the pie while fresh eyes give
CONSIDERATION to all this content information and will it fit their
needs.

The top part of the funnel is once more in full play. This is where
the new people drop the ball. IF the top part has done its job, you
are facing tons of potential new CONVERSIONS.

Happy days for owners and affiliates alike. IF they back it up with
solid CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIPS. You’ve pulled them in, they have converted
and you keep that warm cheery glow growing as they get to know and trust
you.

Finally the part that makes it all worthwhile – CUSTOMER RETENTION
Now your Digital Marketing Funnel is complete in requirements and
satisfactory results.

Even this presentation is just the tip of the iceberg. Identifying
the channels that work best for you, making double sure the promotional
materials and support, training and back up are in place, so that when
Digital Marketing buzz word is spoken the attribution goes right to
where you need it to go. To you and your product. Because you completed
and are testing all the steps for best results.

From Traffic Exchanges To Social Media …

ya think copy? cogs & Logs Newsthe secret no one pays attention to, that turns marketing campaigns into cash generating machines AND causes the brand to become sticky and unforgettable  is …

Relationship Building!

Ironically, you are probably one of the many who neglect this vital piece of results success marketing. When the campaign results are in and they are not so pleasing, you tend to assess the problem everywhere but where it counts …

… with your customer list.

Social Media and Advertising Campaigns

Big Brands have known for a while, that you live in some of these social media. Talking with friends, listening to their tales of super purchases.

Which smart phone you are using today and the tablet you are getting for your birthday.

Sales Folks – It All Spells Sales

If your circle of friends and family are making their buying decision  based on social media discussions, don’t you think it is time you investigated these conversations a wee bit deeper?  Is there a clue or two staring you in the face about how you need to adjust your sales campaigns?

Work = generating of big bucks.

That word ‘work’ brings us back to relationship building. Ever notice how FaceBook will show you how many people are following someone?

Check yours out. What are your actions on Social Media? Do you belong to some of the groups where you learn your advertising skills sort of need a rehash?

Your profile on social media states one form of information based on just how much you want the wide social scene to know about you. But your posts, or lack of them, tell your readers a lot more that is endearing and important to them.

On a personal getting to know you level …

  • your sense of humor or lack of it
  • Empathy for a friend in need
  • Help when they ask for it
  • religious or political standings

On a business relationship level …

  • integrity above success – very rare indeed.
  • Self-reliance over dependency
  • Relationship to the old and tried vs.
  • Desire for new or novel show
  • Careful of thought rather than quick impressions

It is in the social media context that you can make the greatest stand in attracting your target market. Subscribers to Traffic Exchanges also use social media thus again, they get to know you while you get to attract them. It might be a way to cut back steps on a two-way street?

IF they follow you, IF they comment, IF they like who you are on Social Media, then they might just be more willing to follow your brand in business.

Are You An Advertiser Or A Publisher?

Geared to Marketing ResultsBeing tagged a business builder or an affiliate, tends to bulldoze you into a corner where you may not fit.

A publisher, on the other hand, actively promotes the work and actions that create traffic and sales.

In the real world of Internet Marketing, you would be a long tail affiliate.

So there you go. Wannabe business builder, general affiliate creating income off products and services owned by others, or the not so new term ‘publisher’ off the works of others or actions that create traffic and sales tag you into the corner of being recognized as a long tail affiliate.

While your sales may not match those of top producers, you are a marvel at traffic production.

Now may be the time to re-examine both short term and long term goals as this long tail affiliate.

Long Tail Affiliates

The program, product/services owner is an Advertiser.   You as their associate, are a publisher. You are noted for two specific actions:

  • You know how to produce traffic
  • You know how to make sales

That makes you very attractive to all Advertisers (companies).

Such being the case, that qualifies you from the crowd of general affiliates, provides you with a perceived upper value, and a need to rethink all previous goals.

Short Term Actions For Long Term Results

Traffic, and lots of it, is a great goal needed by every internet business and general affiliate in order to make conversions and sales.

However, traffic that does not convert, arguably creates frustration and a great sense of let down.

When you are bringing in sales, that is cause for celebration. In order to increase those sales, short term goals may need a rehash of actions.

For Instance:

i) Upgrading your membership.
Long-term effect: – increase of commission base.  Insider tips and tricks via training, on different promotion channels.

ii) Subscriber/customer expectations:
What if two per month to cover costs, should be two per week?

Working on eight new people per month to convert and upgrade, is no harder, nor does it  take more time than working with two.  However, it does provide 4x more commission earnings.

iii) Lead Acquisition is Step One
Your short term approach may be the next step goal to rethink.
a) follow up actions
i) get them on a list
How? A subscription box on every page of your website, blog,  newsletter or ezine to subscribe to the same, for starters.

People are forgetful. Be their weekly reminder. Position yourself as a proactive sponsor.  Capture the daily news from Cogs & Logs News, back office newsletters, forums, downline mail sends you receive. Any company media information you know you should be sharing with your subscribers.

If you want them to become customers, follow your lead and upgrade, then you need to engage them in what you are doing. Set workable expectations that give them a taste of success.

Long Term Goals

By getting a working strategy in place, the results you get from your testing, will put you in control for future successes.

That will be when you can update the 3-6 month long  expectations, you will have positive results from these actions, which should lead to automatic commission base increases and target your traffic in a productive manner creating consistent conversions.

I am sure these steps will guide you to appropriate changes that suit your direction, in the 1-5yr long term goals.

Finally, step outside yourself when you meet obstacles. Seek help and advice from our willing staff. We are here to help. Try either a support ticket or conference for immediate support on reinstating your enthusiasm for publishing for long term profit.

Cogs & Logs Weekly Round Up

The journey that spells success is targeted to winMonday last we talked about emails being the equalizer between publishers/advertisers and affiliates/downline subscribers.

You work extra hard to find that new person so following up immediately to give them a workable structure is paramount to creating the right connection. Tuesday gave you lots of insights on how to do exactly that.

Wednesday we moved right into insights on blogging then
followed that with a four parts series that brought you up to
middle of this week and checklist time.  Oh man can I tell you
horror stories of lost income, tech messes and upset members
who depend on you to be on the ball with what you offer them.

The only checklist that can let you down is the one you do not
use. We aren’t getting any younger folks so using a strategy
here and there that can save you hours, time and
embarrassment is a plus.

It all ties in with time flies when you are having fun. Are you?
because if fun, joy, a little happiness and all that good stuff is
eluding you then time to make some huge changes in daily
habits.

Do add reading the cogs & Logs news to your daily habits and
give us some feedback? The more we hear from you the better
chance we will choose subjects you want to read about.

Are you doing what you love doing best?

productive meetingsWhile the argument is about ONLY doing what you love, is that practical in all senses of the concept? Doing what you love may not provide the paycheck.

Are you excited to meet the challenges of each new day? 

When I was a new worker, I often complained to Mom and Dad that I had the worse boss, the job was for morons and I needed to look elsewhere or go crazy.

Maybe you were lucky enough to have a Dad like mine. He sat
me down and suggested I get over myself. That every job I
would ever have would always be a pain in some form or the other.

If someone else was going to supply my paycheck then I better
get a grip. My job was to get the job done I was hired for. My
personal opinion could get me fired so find something about
that job that made it exciting, or at least something I could
learn from that would do me good in the job life I was yet to
experience.

How are your working hours spent?

Day jobs often hold the water cooler culture. Where
face-to-face you can talk to a real person. Is it a whine and
cheese party or a productive sharing of ideas to get the work
done? Sometimes more is accomplished in ad-hoc meetings
creating the kind of interaction that calls for less and less
group meetings.

The idea there is what did you learn and how did you learn it?
Can you apply that sort of sharing and excitement in online
business meetings?

Technologies Weapons of Mass Destruction

The door to your office. The telephone, cell phone or any other
mode of interruption that can take your attention away from
the reason for the meeting. The needs of young children or
animals that love to sit on your lap or the keyboard.

Participation becomes a nightmare. Make sure when it is
meeting time, you have these ‘weapons’ under control. Get the
help of your significant other or older sibling to watch the
young ones and advise only if they cannot handle a situation.

Put the phone on messages only. Leave your cell phone
OUTSIDE the office. No one is dying to speak to you right
now!

Provide a bottle of water, a coffee or tea, and a plate of your
favorite biscuits. Sometimes the child within responds better
to a little treat when all the normal noises and distractions are
removed. We are creatures of habit so nurture your inner self
during these times.

Avoid technology blunders.

If you are leading a meeting then make double sure all tools are
in working order. The room access; overheads, whiteboards,
etc. Do sound checks every once in a while. Have a file with
necessary notes and links ready for a copy and paste.

Nothing turns your person off faster than not being prepared
and wasting 20 minutes of value time doing what should have
been done before the meeting.

Decision Time

Do you go to a meeting where everyone is so social you know
you will have a blast laughing and enjoying repartee? Or do
you go to a meeting where you can inject some of that social
fun yet share what needs to be done, get your opinion on board
and come away feeling satisfied you have learned something?

Time does fly when you are having fun. However, the level of
that fun often needs tempering or separating depending on the
reason for calling on your time. Sometimes a little fun is called
for so injecting that moment of relief can be good for all.

It’s a new day! Are you ready to go take on new challenges?

Summer Time And The Living should Be Easy

100_3kidsIf you have a love affair with summer, then you are busy right now making sure as much of your daily marketing tasks as possible are being automated.

Automation on Steroids

If you have a ViralHost hosted account, then you already
have an auto-responder. IF not, then you can rent our basic
auto-responder – allows NINE lists you can create – check it
out with your sponsor.

For the price of that Auto-responder, and a little more, you
can have your own Basic hosting package.  It’s a great way to
have a home for your cool pages, special give-aways and simple
web pages for promoting those eye catching products you signed
up for.

This way, the auto-responder comes with the package. NO
cost. We’ll help you set it up and fill in the mails you will
need. Automation, cannot beat it for a time saver. A
two-for-one deal with a great savings on individual price.

Checklists and Subscriber News

EVERY week, from each Cogs & Logs News, the ViralHost
Social Community sessions and the summer Extravaganza
contest plus other happenings, means you should easily have
a simple email ready to send to your subscribers.

Keep them in the loop and ready to follow your lead. Link
back to the Cogs & Logs News, your blog or website and
other places to keep them informed.

Do your people know the weekly contest results are posted
EVERY Saturday morning in the Traffic Exchange newsletters?
Do they know that the stats from that week are turned over
so there is always a new week of stats for them to watch to
see how they are doing?

Creating Traffic & Leads for Conversions

Referring other people is a great way to get more traffic to
your Website.  You receive a percentage of the  traffic on any
upgrades  or purchases made by them as well as on their daily
surfing totals.

Upgraded Members Perks

Being upgraded means you earn higher traffic amounts as
well as percentage commissions.  Not everyone can afford
the outlay to upgrade. Again that is why referrals can come
to your rescue.

Why not win an upgrade?

Right now while the Summer Extravaganza contest is on,
you could win a ONE year TOP upgrade in each Traffic
Exchange EVERY week. Log in and check out the CONTEST
icons for the rules.  Then scroll down and see how you
are making out.

Websites build your own or we will build it for you.
ALL hosted members for ViralHost.com have a sitebuilder
that can be used to design hundreds of easy five page sites.

When you need to get started, there is no better place to do
so than checking out ViralHost.com

TOS – Terms of Service – Agreement

Have you read the changes? You should. Many of the pages
currently in our Traffic Exchanges will need to be removed.

No one loves your product like you do so why not present it
so everyone can get to know what you do? A splash page
linked to your site page works wonders increasing traffic,
creating sales and conversions.

No one has time to read a nine page history of images or
text or any combination. Half the time these pages do not
even load.  Do yourself a favor and see where you can better
the performance of your products and services.

Another Super Survey Session

The month of June has been all about learning and
installing survey programs. A list of ONE million names has
little conversion to sales value if you do not understand the
needs of your potential customers.

What better way than running surveys to find those answers
and be able to provide the solutions that create ka-ching
income.

Congratulations to Dale Thomson who informed the class he
made top salesman in his company this month. Dale is a
regular to our sessions and Dale is one of those people who
take action on what they learn.

Tuesday is one of the best days to send downline mails to
your subscribers. The open, read rates show increases on
this day. What message will you send to your subscribers this
week?

Have a super Monday.
