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

If you’ve been around the traffic exchange and related community very long, you likely know my very good friend and fellow blonde Southerner Sunny Suggs.

Sunny is out there in the online trenches every single day working hard as well as being social, day in & day out; is one of the hardest working folks in this industry; & has helped sooo many people. More than I could name in a week, and that’s only the ones I know of!

If you’ve been around the TE community very long, whether you’re a surfer or owner, she’s probably helped you with something sometime, and if you’ve been in online marketing elsewhere you may have run across her and her happy helpful self as well.

Sunny has singlehandedly put out some of the most consistently helpful programs in the industry, for many years. A while back she had a great program called All About Traffic Exchanges, you may remember.

Well, now Sunny’s brought that same concept back in another, even better site!

==> (click here to check out What Are Traffic Exchanges?)

What Are Traffic Exchanges? may not only show you things you may not have known before about TEs – it also includes in-depth videos and e-books outlining all the details (and I do mean pretty much literally ALL) about a few special traffic exchanges (including the traffic exchange I co-own, Sound Surf Live).

Even if you’re an old hat at TEs, here’s where it’s really valuable to current members and TE veterans – you can re-brand the e-book and give it away to your new and potentially new downline members. That’s a great way to help build your downlines and really help your new folks!

Show your support for one of the hardest-working and most consistently helpful folks in our community and check out Sunny’s awesome new program now:

==> (go grab all the helpful e-books & videos included in WATE now!)

P.S. (If you’re a traffic exchange owner and interested in having an e-book/video/e-mail series created for your traffic exchange like the ones currently in WATE, just give Sunny a shout!)

As of the last time I looked this (Friday) morning, there were only about 16 badges left for the “CTP is 3” birthday badge hunt at ClickTrackProfit, which starts on Monday (well, midnight EST Sunday night, technically).

If you were thinking about grabbing a badge and being a badge holder during the hunt but hadn’t yet – or been on the fence – now is the time to get yours before they’re sold out.

Being a badge holder during one of these legendary badge hunts can be huge for you, whether you’re a program owner or not. If you own a traffic exchange or any other program, you’ll be able to bring hordes of new members in a flash. If you’re building a list or have a blog or anything of the sort, it’s the fastest way I know of to bring in new subscribers and get new eyes on your stuff.

In any case, don’t delay, because they’re liable to sell out quick today, and before the day is over!

On another note, I just wanted to add a word of huge appreciation to traffic exchange owners and other program owners who are always prompt and diligent about notifying their members when there’s been a change and a new program has been added to their program’s downline builder.

I have had three or four such notifications come across my desk this week, and as an affiliate, I am always so very much appreciative of the heads up. Thank you, thoughtful program owners who make a habit of this!

A lot of folks like to make the claim that downline builders don’t work, but that’s just not entirely true. Sure, it’s never a guarantee that everyone in your downline’s going to join something else in a particular program’s downline builder, but I’ve seen plenty of it happen in mine over the years.

Not only that, but I myself am a prime example of how downline builders DO work. Most of my earliest signups to many traffic exchanges, safelists and mailers, and some other programs were through one of the “funnel program” downline builders, and under that one person I joined that program under.

That person used to be a major player in not only the traffic exchange industry (and a TE owner), but the larger Internet marketing industry as well. This was way back when I was a super new newbie.

He doesn’t seem to really be around anymore (or at least not much), but he’s certainly been paid a fair amount of affiliate commissions and received an awful lot of credits over the years because of me, and thanks to the fact that he’d filled out all of his referral IDs in one particularly large downline builder. It works!

So being able to keep your various downline builders updated is important, even it’s a chore sometimes. It wouldn’t be much of a chore if ALL program owners made a point of notifying members when they’ve made a change or added something new to a downline builder. There’s little more frustrating to me than logging into a program for the first time in a while to discover several programs I’m a member of have been added, that I didn’t know about.

But in the end, it makes me all that more appreciative of the owners who do make a point of it and make the effort to notify their members of such changes, and there’s quite a few of them around who do it regularly. So thank you, those of you that do!

In any case, have a great weekend, everyone – and Happy Badge Hunting at CTP next week!

(By the way, since I started writing this post another badge has been purchased, so now there’s only 15 badges left – get yours NOW!)

P.S. Here’s a new program fairly recently launched from some owners who make a regular habit of notifying their members of downline builder changes at their various programs. Eric Abbott & Randy Howard, I certainly do appreciate that you guys do that!

Eric & Randy launched E Brand Profile during the first part of January, and I’m really excited about it ‘cos already it’s solved some issues and problems I had been worrying and fretting over lately. (Hint: You are going to start seeing my E Brand Profile pages circulating VERY soon, LOL.)

It is super easy to work with and use, and another great branding tool. All members get one free E Brand Profile, but if you upgrade to the Basic membership, you get five profiles (and five rotators with statistics).

If you upgrade to Premium (which I have and love), you can make UNLIMITED profiles, have unlimited rotators with statistics, AND they give you web hosting too. Neat, huh?!

If you’ve been wanting to do video splash pages and squeeze pages, or wanting to fix up some cool pages to rotate for your Spreecast, E Brand Profile is a super option. Check it out sometime!

ClickTrackProfit is really hopping with activity this week since Spooktacular 2013 began on Monday. Jon said late yesterday afternoon that over 400 new people had joined CTP since the event started at midnight. Wow! That’s pretty sweet for a program that has now been around for a pretty long time.

So, what is Spooktacular? Well, in a nutshell, there are about 200 badges that were purchased by members of ClickTrackProfit to give out to other members that hunt them. It’s kind of like one big large scavenger hunt, with thousands of folks participating. Many of the badge owners are traffic exchange owners and owners of various online programs, while some badge owners are simply members who don’t own a program themselves.

Requirements to get each badge are mostly different and vary per owner. Some of the badges are given out for surfing X amount of pages, for joining X program or TE, for subscribing to the badge owner’s blog, or are hidden on badge owners’ sites. Some badges have a time limit, most don’t.

A number of badges have yet to have their requirements posted, or it’s been noted the requirements will be posted later. (You folks that are badge owners and haven’t done anything at ALL with them need to get on the ball before it’s too late!)

Oh, and there’s a lot of money to be won… almost forgot that part (heh). There are now over $500 in cash prizes to be given away during Spooktacular, including a $250+ top prize to the CTP member who collects the most badges, as well as $250 worth of random 50 cent ($0.50) badges given out as members redeem badges collected. How awesome is that?

A lot of new folks who are now newly getting my blog updates thanks to Spooktacular will be reading this today (and for that I sorta apologize since obviously you guys already know what Spooktacular is, heh). One of my two badges was offered for subscribing to updates from this here blog, and I have been flatly amazed to see how many people subscribed thus far. (Thank you all, and I hope you will stick around!!)

I am enjoying badge hunting myself and have acquired close to 40 already, yippee! The neat thing about Spooktacular, to me, is that not only is it an amazing opportunity for badge owners to get new people into their programs or reading their blogs, or joining their downlines or for whatever purpose their badge is being offered – as a badge hunter, for the last day and a half I have been checking out programs I didn’t know much about or even know existed, joined new ones that just recently opened, and just been exposed now to a lot of things I hadn’t seen before, so that part’s cool and interesting too!

I was so excited about Spooktacular yesterday that I made a new promo page for it that I started rotating around TE Land yesterday, check it out HERE. (There’s also a corresponding page attached to the badge of which I speak for people to subscribe to the mailing list that will eventually lead them directly to that badge later this week.)

In any case, what fun this has all been so far! I missed the first CTP promo that was like this one, Bill’s Birthday Bash in June, by literally days – my first day arriving back at TE Live for the first time in years was during the first week of July, so I missed that promo totally and am so glad I am here for this one!

The lovely Sunny Suggs and the charming Tom Wacker are collaborating this year on the 2013 Spooktacular blog (click HERE) and are keeping tabs on what all’s going on, giving out various hints and tips and tricks and such. You’ll want to subscribe to their blog for daily updates to find out what all’s going on Spooktacular-wise.

If you’re one of the rare few people who are not already a member of ClickTrackProfit yet and want to join in on all this Spooktacular fun, sign up HERE and get started. You do have to be a member of CTP in order to participate.

Good luck and happy Spooktacular badge hunting to all!
