Any idiot can do what I do to make $ online. It's not rocket surgery, it's cake. Also, I like pie.

My apologies for not having posted an update here in a little while. As you may or may not be aware, I’ve been just a little bit busy.  ;)

Hop on back here come Monday. There’s something really cool coming next week that I wanna tell you about, and you’re probably not gonna want to miss it.

Have a great (holiday, for U.S peeps anyway) weekend, folks!

So I’m a day late mentioning this (though the week just started, mine’s not gotten off to a very good start), but wanted to rectify my omission as quickly as possible.

Many of us in “TE Land” came here from PTCs and the like, and I reckon many have continued to work them actively, at least now and again, since it’s a pretty easy and inexpensive (and in a lot of cases, free) way to earn spare change to pay for things we need for our online businesses and activities.

My activity in PTCs and such things has lessened quite a bit in recent months, but I continue to actively work a few daily, and I do also passively maintain memberships in some various “paid to” sites that continue to bring me commissions on a pretty regular basis, and have for years.

I tend to throw most anything I get from PTCs and other PT sites back into advertising and such anyway, but it’s still pretty cool to bring in some extra fundage at basically zero cost that winds up covering many of my online business expenses.

Of course, to be able to bring in more than just a few pennies here and there, you’ve got to have a downline, and hopefully a relatively active one. That’s something we all know, and is something that’s pretty much true in just about every area of affiliate business.

Well, that’s where MY PTC Downline Builder comes in, which is a brand new program that launched yesterday.

MY PTC Downline Builder is owned and was created by two of my favorite people in the traffic exchange industry – Russell Stockley of Cup of Traffic, and Kevin Williams of DoubleNice Traffic (and, of course, Russell and Kevin also together own Force Hits).

Here’s some of what you can do with MY PTC Downline Builder:

  • Promote all your programs using just one link
  • Build downlines in any PTC program you choose
  • Earn up to 40% direct commissions

The free membership allows you to add two programs of your choice to the downline builder and earn 15% commissions on referral purchases. That’s pretty cool.

But the big value (and major downline building ability) is in the Premium membership, which allows you to add up to twenty (yes, 20!) programs of your choice to the downline builder, gives you 40% commission on all referral purchases, and other goodies like a 25% bonus on all your banner impression purchases.

And here’s the kicker – the Premium membership is only $20 annually. Yep, that comes down to basically about $1.67 a month, for easy downline building ability in 20+ programs AND 40% commissions. Nice, huh?

And there’s, of course, the value in joining a program with active, honest and responsible owners behind it such as Russell and Kevin. Plus, they’re both just really nice and good guys!

In any case, if you have a mind to, feel free to check out Russell and Kevin’s new baby and see what you think of MY PTC Downline Builder. Have a terrific Tuesday!

It’s been a little bit of an “off” week at Traffic Exchange Live this week so far – a lot of people (including myself and Jon Olson) have kinda had a case of the blahs all week, but we’ve still had a lot of attendees and activity and general chitchat and chatter going on in the room all week.

I’m not sure we’ve had under 20 people in the room at any one time all week  – sometimes over 25, nearly 30 – and that’s kinda weird (but very nice to see more activity and garden-variety networking going on).

Anyway, I wanna get this post banged out real quick today as I was feeling so crummy this morning, I’m behind on everything – so let’s get this posting party today started…

Whiny Wednesday and Tepid Thursday on Traffic Exchange Live:

  • As I mentioned above, it’s been kind of a blah week this week and, in fact, we haven’t even see Jon Olson on cam in days this week due to the blahs and the fact he was eating a messy BBQ for lunch before TE Live on Wednesday and didn’t want to get on cam because he said he was all messy.
  • Boy, did we see Tim Linden though. How could you miss him in this shirt?

  • All he needs is a matching pocket protector.
  • That shirt is also SO orange it hurts my eyes.
  • Jerry Iannucci bucked the trend of the day and wore a red shirt, though he was almost orange.
  • Jon had a rant about other traffic exchange owners saying traffic exchanges were a waste of time, and the room got involved in a long discussion about that subject.
  • We also discussed yesterday’s relaunch of John Guanzon and Brett Phillips’ program TE Reports, and talked about the rather tremendous smorgasbord of Wednesday night conferences on the table for the night (the bi-weekly Tezak Traffic Power conference, weekly SWAT Conference, and the monthly Get Referrals Fast conference for upgraded members).
  • James Dias, owner of Ablaze With Traffic, popped in for what turned out to be a very lengthy and I think very positive discussion about his exchange with Jon and others in the room.
  • Here’s James talking with everybody:

  • After the business discussion was pretty much tapering off, the room dissolved into football talk. Ahhhh…
  • Tim had an idea about renting out his brain for $1000 a month.
  • No programming involved. You get Tim’s ideas only for that $1000 a month.
  • Nobody at TE Live offered to take him up on it.
  • Tim and Justin Ledvina teased Jon about starting up their own company: “We’ve got a hardcore awesome programmer, a hardcore awesome designer… we don’t need Jon.”
  • Jon said they were “special boys”.
  • (Or maybe that was “speshul”?)
  • Then Carl Bailey and Jon joked about going into their own business together. “Now me and Carl are buddies… I’m taking my toys.”
  • On Thursday’s edition of TE Live, Tim was nowhere to be found, Jon was still blah and not on cam, and actually no one was on cam Thursday except this guy again:

  • That shirt of Jerry’s kinda reminds me of Wayne’s World.
  • Though off cam, Jon had more ranting to do on Thursday, this time about Sweeva and some stuff that had been going on there with people claiming their sites were banned.
  • Jon gave Jerry and John Bell (who wasn’t in attendance) props for calling out some of the scammy sites that have been rotating on Sweeva.
  • That discussion went on a pretty long time, then we got to talking about a certain multi-TE group that it’s been rumored has not been paying commissions.
  • This information was later verified by TE Live attendee Eric Holzwarth, who said he had not been paid his requested commission either.
  • And then I got interrupted by a phone call and pretty much missed most of the rest of TE Live for the day, even though everyone told me I didn’t miss much.
  • I did page up in the conversation I’d missed while on the phone, however, and noted what appeared to have been a very strange and lengthy discussion about… Twinkies.
  • (I’m serious.)
  • GIVEAWAYS: Riiiiight…
  • I CALL YOU OUT ABOVE, YOU GET LINKAGE:  Safelist Marketing Tactics (Jerry Iannucci), ThumbVu (John Guanzon), TE Reports (John Guanzon & Brett Phillips), Ablaze With Traffic (James Dias), AdKreator (Justin Ledvina), Instant Splash (Carl Bailey), Insidmal Design (John Bell), Lucid Leads (Eric Holzwarth)
  • ALSO SEEN ON THE SCENE: Brenda Broyles, Darrell Whiston, Diane Merriam, Dorena Begonia, James Holmes, Kevin Bailey, Ram Kumar, Stephen Whittle, Walter Mulder, Darren Olander, Ian Bakewell, Charles Smith, Marcus Villalobos, Anthony Shenberger, Lynne Sherman, Paul Brown, Jared Silver, Andrea Smith
  • QUOTE OF THE DAY: “Linden is like a 80-year-old lady.” – Justin Ledvina
