Leveraging Traffic Exchanges – Part 3: Affiliate Programs (Building your Empire)

Ok! Now we are on the third installment of the Series on Leveraging Traffic Exchanges, and this is actually the part I get the most excited about.  We’ve discussed Surfing and Advertising in the previous sections, but today we are going to talk about Affiliate Programs and leveraging these Traffic Exchanges to start working for you.


I hear a lot of people complain about how “dumb” people are for promoting a Traffic Exchange in a Traffic Exchange, and this really couldn’t be further from the truth.

There is one thing we know for sure about the people surfing in a Traffic Exchange.. and that is THEY WANT MORE TRAFFIC!  A Traffic Exchange is the easiest and most effective place to advertise Traffic Exchanges.


Virtually Every Traffic Exchange in the market will give you credits based on your referrals surfing.

I could probably have just posted that one sentence and be done with the blog post.. but.. that’s totally not my style so I’m going to talk about it until my fingers hurt.


While many Traffic Exchanges do offer competitive affiliate programs with high commission rates, the most effective (and profitable) part of traffic exchanges is their referral downline credits.


Building up your Traffic Exchange Empire (as I like to call it) is pretty simple, as long as you start from foundation and work your way up.

Start with your 2 Favorite Traffic Exchanges, it doesn’t matter which two as long as they offer referral credits (Upgrading will usually earn you a higher percentage).

Focus on just these two traffic exchanges and nothing else, surf them every day, make sure your ads are at maximum exposure there, and make sure your primary thing you are advertising at each — is the other.

For Example I might want to being with Traffic Swirl and Surf Sumo — I would make sure to surf every day at each site, to engage with members in chat so they can get to know me better.

I will focus my ads to just Surf Sumo at Traffic Swirl, and just Traffic Swirl at Surf Sumo, I will get to know the members, engage with them, become a part of their communities.

It is just a matter of time before people become comfortable enough with you to start really paying attention to what you are doing (promoting) and the referrals will start to come in for both sites.


Now for example lets say I have now built up a downline of 50 people at each site, I’m finding that at Surf Sumo I don’t have to surf as much to get enough credits for the day, and as the referrals build you will begin to earn more credits per day than you can actually get your ads seen, and this is without even surfing yourself or buying credits.. the great thing is you’ll also have earned some commissions from them too along the way.

Now you can say ok, I don’t have to surf there anymore to keep my ads in rotation, and you can add a third exchange into the mix, and start focusing on building there.

Just simply go through one by one, and next thing you know you’ll have thousands of credits at hundreds of traffic exchanges being earned for you every single day, without you doing a thing.

Now you can leverage all of these free credits to not only save you a ton of money from having to buy them, but also a countless amount of time surfing for them.


Again I’m just trying to keep this guide basic so I’m going to stop here – but this very simple system is the exact same way I have come to be getting over 10,000 website ad hits a day from Traffic Exchanges, without ever buying a single credit or having surf for over 6 months now.


The most important note here is to take it slow, and to do just one at a time until you master it. Every time you switch what you are advertising, you are starting over from the beginning, so even when you have gone for two months and are getting tired and frustrated and want to give up – DON’T! IF you give up now you are going to start over completely from square one, so it’s very very important that you just stick to it every day, keep doing what you know you need to do – and don’t look back!


This concludes my little Leveraging Traffic Exchanges Mini-Series, hopefully you have found some of it useful and can use parts of it to help you maximize your Traffic Exchange Results in the same ways I have 🙂
