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

So it was a big night for my pals in the Legacy Team last night with the launch of their newest program, Legacy Result! (As you likely know, I sent out an e-mail last night since blog post notifications by mail have been going out kinda slow lately, but I was behind last night anyway so e-mail was the quickest route anyway to share the good news!)

So what exactly is Legacy Result? Well, for one thing, it’s not just a traffic exchange, even though it has that function. Legacy Result also has a banner network co-op type thingy, a paid-to-promote function, some video training, and I’m told will eventually include a mailer function as well, plus a lot planned down the line to come.

Legacy Result also serves as sort of a “Legacy Central” where you can more or less manage all of your Legacy site accounts from one place, from all the many programs they owned before to their recent acquisitions from William Miller. If you are a member of any or many Legacy sites (and who isn’t, right?!) – this makes Legacy Result an extra valuable tool for your arsenal.

Needless to say, a site like Legacy Result has the potential to increase one’s commision earnings and downline activity quite a bit. If a newbie wanted to build their entire or most of their online affiliate business around one program, Legacy Result wouldn’t be a bad choice at all because it’s a big funnel to a lot of highly successful programs in one place.

You can also now build your list with Legacy Result super duper easy. Last night Marcus added a RocketResponder e-mail series that you can integrate into your own RocketResponder list and there’s a squeeze page in their Affiliate Toolbox you can use to promote that list (or of course, even better, create your own squeeze page to fit your individual personality and brand).

In any case, Legacy Result is a pretty big win-win here in my opinion for yet another big launch from the Legacy Team! They wound up launching it a bit earlier in planned so it would launch in conjunction with the newest Bigfoot Badge Hunt at ClickTrackProfit, so there’s still a lot within Legacy Result to be fixed and modified as well as a lot more stuff to come in the very near future.

So if you haven’t already become a member, check out Legacy Result today and see what all Ken and Marcus have set up for you there to help out your online business efforts. (And have a super rest of your week and upcoming weekend!)



As you probably are aware if you’re very active at all in the TE community, I give away stuff regularly – credits and other free advertising from bunches of traffic exchanges, as well as some cash prizes (thanks to very generous sponsors like the TimTech gang and Tony Tezak) – via my other site, Win 10 With Lynn.

Here’s something you probably didn’t know…

If you enter for the Daily Prizes via Twitter very often, or have played or attended the weekly Traffic Break Trivia much, there’s a very good chance you have inadvertently wound up with some extra credits or banners and texts at one time or another at any number of traffic exchanges in our community that rotate external prize pages for their TE in the surf.

You know the ones – the Legacy group of sites, TE Racing League, Cup of Traffic, Surf Skeleton, Hit Funnel, DoubleNice Traffic, Bondsman, and others show external prize pages that give away credits, banners and texts in the surf at other traffic exchanges, and you’ve probably entered your username in them plenty of times while surfing and gotten those prizes.

Well, what happens sometimes is that I’ll be surfing after I’ve distributed usernames to my various sponsors for prizes from Win 10 With Lynn, but I’ll forget that I still have one of those winners’ usernames in my copy/paste cache…

And instead of pasting MY username in the box to get the prize from whatever TE’s external prize page I’m on, without realizing it I’ll paste the username of some person who won one of my prizes in the box, ‘cos THEIR username is still in my cache… and usually don’t realize I’ve done it until it’s too late and I’ve already clicked the submit button.

And if their username at that TE is the same as their username at whatever TE they won through me from (which it probably usually is the same name, most people have the same usernames everywhere), they’ll get the external prize page prize instead of me. Which is, you know, fine, just one of those happy accidents for the unknowing prize recipients, I reckon.

Usually when I start surfing, the first time I come across an external prize page and put my username in the box, I’ll highlight and copy it so I can just paste it in again and again every time I come across another external prize page. But yeah, sometimes I forget.

This phenomenon also occurs sometimes with CTP XP, now that several traffic exchanges have XP prize pages in the surf as well – Click Your Face Off, Cup of Traffic, Bondsman, and probably some more I can’t think of off the top of my head all have XP pages in their surf these days.

If your CTP username is the same as most of your other usernames, and you enter or play for any of my Win 10 With Lynn prizes very often – then yeah, you’ve probably gotten some XP accidentally from me for the same reasons as above.

It’s not a big deal to me, really – I correctly log in for most of those prizes with my own username plenty enough – but I get a chuckle sometimes when I realize what I’ve done, having someone else’s username in my cache when those external prize pages and XP pages come around in the surf.

And then I wonder sometimes if the “accidental recipients” ever wonder where that extra 250 or 350 or 500 banners and texts, or extra 10 or 50 or 100 or whatever credits came from that they didn’t know they had.

And if you did ever wonder – well, now you know!

P.S. So have you joined Lords of Lothar yet?

This new traffic exchange (and the ONLY one that is not only a TE but also an RPG) is the latest thing from the Goettman brothers and hottest thing around the TE community these days, and my Brian is now completely and totally HOOKED on it.

If you’re not a member yet, check it out now (you’ll technically be joining under Brian, but it’s our account) and prepare to enjoy your new addiction!

 

 



It’s the inevitable question (or, The Inevitable Question). Sometimes it’s worded differently, but it’s more or less all the same question:

“So, what do you do?”

I have yet to figure out how to tell people who aren’t involved in the TE community or in somewhat related areas of online business, when they ask, just what it is I do online without sounding like an idiot.

Or if I make an attempt to explain at least a little bit of it, their eyes start glazing over. Then as soon as they can, they change the subject to something like, “So have you seen (so-and-so whoever) lately?“, or some other something or another conversation topic that they can understand and make sense out of.

It’s really difficult if that person doesn’t really do anything or much online at all. But I’ve even seen it happen with friends who DO operate businesses online, or at least a business with a visible and active online presence.

The guy who does computer repair all over a quad-state area regionally, for instance. He probably spends as much time in his online business activities as I do with mine, but he just can’t really comprehend and grasp the concept of traffic exchanges, safelists and viral mailers, surfing, autoresponders, and all that whatnot.

As I mentioned last week, we had a death in the family. So, of course, in all the ensuing funeral home/memorial service stuff that goes on when such an event occurs, I had out-of-town relatives in town for most of the week.

I maybe see two of the cousins about once every ten years, if even that much, at least since I was a teenager. One of them is the closest of the cousins to my age, so we have a childhood history. The other is quite a bit younger, and not too long after she was born came the point where I didn’t see them very much at all.

What one of them does for a living is easily explainable to anyone who asks – he’s a college professor. The other one, I’m a little less sure of what exactly she does for the company, but let’s just say she works for a Very Large Online Behemoth That Is Not Google. But I know enough about the company (and so would pretty much anyone) to have a pretty good idea of what she does, and not have to ask a bunch of questions.

So for all practical purposes, I pretty much know what they do.

Unfortunately, they are now probably more clueless than ever about what it is I do, since when one of them posed The Inevitable Question to me last week, I wound up just making a great big mess of trying to explain anything at all, which likely left them and anyone else within earshot wondering what the heck I was doing with this online whatever thing.

And even more ridiculous, I didn’t even get to the traffic exchange industry part – not that it would have likely helped explain anything anyway. More likely that would have just confused them further.

If I had to guess, I would say they all probably came away from that conversation thinking I was doing something sort of like selling Amway or Avon online, but not really.

And then wondered what the heck “online business” is supposed to mean, like maybe it’s kind of a code word for something else that… well, you know, who even knows what crazy picture I put in their heads with my futile attempt at explanation.

Thinking about the conversation later, I realized that the question that was actually asked this time had been not so much “So, what do you do?”, but instead was more like “So, what are you up to these days?”

In retrospect, I really could have just skipped the whole work/online thing and given some other kind of completely unrelated answer, and saved us all the trouble of them getting terribly confused and me feeling like some babbling idiot.

There was also the cousin who I do see and communicate with a little more often, and who is so much younger than me that I tend to think of him more as a nephew than a cousin. Now, he has a business (or is a franchisee, I’m really not sure) that does operate a little online but I think is mostly an offline business, more or less. I don’t really understand what it is he does either , other than the fact that it all has something to do with guns and ammo (legally – I do know that much).

I think what he does and his business is probably somewhat and about as difficult for most people to comprehend as they do my stuff. Given that, I didn’t expect to, nor did I, get The Inevitable Question from him.

I am fortunate in that within my immediate family (which is pretty much just me, my mother, and my fiance these days), I really don’t have to explain much. My mom probably can’t tell you exactly what I do either, but she knows and hears enough about it all, and is and has always been very supportive of my efforts.

Pretty much the same with Brian, and he hears plenty more on a regular basis – more than he wants to sometimes, probably. Plus he does see some of what I do, how many hours I spend doing it all, and how much I am working, even if he doesn’t really totally understand what it all is and what it does. And he has gotten to know some of the fine folks in our TE community, which helps as well.

Plus they’re both pretty online savvy, computer savvy, and all such stuff, which kinda helps too. My mother is over 70 now, but she’s not one of those older folks who just came online in the last decade and does e-mail and Facebook and that’s it. We had a computer in the house since the late 1970s, and for a lot of years, whatever computer I was using at any given time was her cast-off computer after she bought a newer PC.

So yeah, I am fortunate in that I have a bit of understanding from my immediate family regarding what I do, and they’re very supportive overall (I know a lot of others don’t have that, or far from it, so I’m very grateful and appreciative of that).

They may not fully understand it, but they understand it enough. They sort of get what a traffic exchange is, they do pretty much understand affiliate marketing, and they absolutely understand the word “commissions”. That’s probably the best anyone could ask for, really.

One of my online colleagues who’s not around anymore, he sometimes used to tell confused and questioning family or friends, when they asked The Inevitable Question (or pressed for more information after having asked it), that he made his money online in adult websites, or with spam e-mails.

Online porn and the stuff in their spam mailbox, those things they could understand and comprehend. Traffic exchanges, membership sites, autoresponders, affiliate commissions, etc. – those things, they just couldn’t grasp.

Maybe there’s an easier way to answer The Inevitable Question that wouldn’t be so brain-numbing (for ME, much more so than them!) and frustrating, but I have yet to hit upon a really good one that doesn’t result in the eyes-glazing-over phenomenon yet.

Lately I’m thinking just saying “I’m in advertising”, and leaving it at that (and NOT saying “online advertising”) – and hoping like heck they don’t ask me to explain further – may be the least painful and least brain-twisting of avenues to take.

So what do YOU tell people? I bet there are some great stories out there, I’d love to hear ’em!

P.S. Pssst, speaking of online advertising (everywhere, and all over the place!):
