When starting your own home based business you get so much overwhelmed from all the opportunities and offers the internet throws at you.
It is difficult to decide what is good for you and your business niche and what isn't. But you as a business owner have to consider what works best for you and your business and how to spread your business name, services or products out to the audience. When you first start your business you are like a dead fish in the water. So, you have to find a strategy of how to get visitors to your business or site.
You have your service or products you have your shop (website) but nobody enters in your business.
This has to change... There are offers all over the internet of a variety of Traffic Exchange Sites.
What is a Traffic Exchange Site?
A Traffic Exchange Site is where you can subscribe as a member and surf different sites of ads from other business owners for a certain time. Depending on the Traffic Exchange Site it varies between 10 and 40 seconds in most of the cases, some Traffic Exchange Sites have a higher time counter. You look at that ad or site for at least the amount of time the time-counter is counting. In case you get attracted from the site you're watching to you read the text or scroll down all the way to learn the seller's offer.
When you are finished with the site you go to the next this can be by clicking on a number or a symbol and you get credit points. You collect as many credits as possible to your account. If you have enough credits you start to advertise with these credits your products or services or just the name of your site. This way you get seen by other surfers or members of that Traffic Exchange and your name will be remembered over the time because of the constant exposure of your site. Depending on the amount of credits you have available your site will be more times exposed or advertised.
The best news for a starter is, these Traffic Exchanges are FREE and these are essential marketing tools for your business especially when you as a newcomer are on a low budget. Some Traffic Exchanges have thousands of members and as you can imagine your business will also be seen from thousands of people. If your products or business attracts your visitors there might be a chance you sell something or at least you capture the name, email address of your visitor in case you set-up everything correctly.
It is difficult to say which Traffic Exchange works best for you. Sometimes the small traffic exchanges with less members might attract more visitors because your ad will be seen more frequently. Or the traffic exchange has more targeted visitors in your niche.
As I mentioned before it is very difficult to say it is just a numbers game. The best thing is sign up for different traffic exchanges and start surfing and advertising your business. When you will become successful as an entrepreneur you need to advertise. The more traffic exchanges you sign up for the more exposure your business will get.
Although some traffic exchanges promise you a lot just read the procedures of the site you signed up for and start surfing. Everything in this business is a process that takes a certain time to get fruition.
Don't get frustrated if you'll get no sales instantly or within days or weeks. Like the saying, "you have to learn to crawl before you can walk and you have to walk before you can run." Wealth or riches don't come overnight. They come slowly step by step depending on your effort and action you take and the consistency of your actions.
Traffic Exchange is a powerful FREE way to advertise your service or products. In case you consider more aggressive ad-campaigns you can upgrade your membership through paying a monthly fee and jumpstart your site with more power-benefits. Just remember the more money you spend the more time you have available to concentrate on other important parts of your business.
Most of the traffic exchange sites work similarly or have nearly the same system or concept. The important part is the more credits, the more effective advertising you'll get for your site. You get full control on your advertising campaigns.
There are other traffic exchange sites which show your site whenever you surf to other member's sites. That means you get no credits to exposure your site but your site will be instantly shown as long as you surf. Your site will be exposed to members as many times you surf other member sites. It really doesn't matter how the traffic exchange-system works as long as you get visitors and future prospects to your site and as long as you brand your business name. that's what matters in the internet business.
