Everybody loves freebies, right! Well, this site that has just launched has tons of promo codes that you can redeem for all kinds of traffic. It is called TrafficCodex:
Click Here to Join TrafficCodex
TrafficCodex is in fact a new version of ViralBonuses. If you were previously a member of ViralBonuses, your account and referrals have been transferred to the new TrafficCodex site, so you can login with your old ViralBonuses login details. Plus, your old ViralBonuses referral link automatically redirects to the new version of the site.
There are several promo codes available on the new TrafficCodex site, with more to come. New sites are added daily. The design is well thought-out and the site is easy to navigate. Once you have logged in, simply click on the little square icon to the right of the Login button in the top right corner, and the entire menu will appear.
You will find promo codes for traffic exchanges as well as for safelists and mailers. You can even install a browser extension for Firefox or Chrome to be alerted when you visit a website that has promo codes on TrafficCodex, which is pretty cool! When you click on the alert icon, you will instantly be shown a list of all of the promo codes that are available for that site. You can then copy and redeem the codes to get your free advertising!
The site also serves as a downline builder, since you can add your referral IDs for all the sites. People you refer to TrafficCodex can then join under you at any site where they are not already a member. If you are a program owner, you can easily add your site to the list, along with any promo codes that you want to offer your members through TrafficCodex. The site is free to join, so go ahead and redeem as many promo codes as you can!

If you have been a member of ClickTrackProfit for some time, you have probably witnessed a couple of the past badge hunts. If you have not experienced such an event yet, fear not: they are having one right now! This is quite exciting!
Yes, ClickTrackProfit is 3 and they are having a badge hunt to celebrate.
The way it works is that you go to the Badge Hunt page, click on each badge and follow the instructions of the badge owners to get their badge.
For some badges, you will have to surf a certain amount of pages in a traffic exchange. For other badges, you will have to join a program. For others, you will have to join their mailing list.
That is what I’m doing for this badge hunt. I have purchased my badge and I will be offering it to the people who join my list during the badge hunt.
The badge hunt will be running until the end of February. The person at the end of the hunt who has the most badges will win $500. That’s pretty cool! Plus, they will be giving away $1000 in 50-cent badges randomly each time a game piece is found. This means that every time you collect a CTP-Is-3 badge during the hunt, you could get a 50-cent badge in addition!
If you are not yet a member of ClickTrackProfit, you can join here:
To receive my CTPis3 badge, all you have to do is join my mailing list. You will receive the badge in the second email you will get after confirming your subscription. The first thing I will show you is the system that I have been using for 4 years now to build my list, grow my downlines and my traffic and increase my commissions. As you keep using this system, it grows bigger and bigger. You will also receive some valuable stuff over time, so you might want to stick around!
You can join my list by clicking here. (If you are already on my list, you will receive my badge on Monday February 10th!)
I want to thank you for joining my list. It is an honor and I hope I will live up to your expectations of quality information. 🙂
Please don’t hesitate to ask me if you have any questions, and feel free to post your comments below!
Happy badge hunting!

Today, I want to let you know about a very cool program that I started to work on recently. This program could help you get to the next level in affiliate commissions.
Click Here To Watch The Video
You know how I love step-by-step systems. I’ve been using one for 4 years now to build my list, my downlines, my traffic and my commissions by leveraging traffic exchanges and safelists. And it is working very well.
But I wanted to take it to the next level, a higher level of commissions. I wanted to build my income faster. I didn’t know how to go about it, apart from working more, or buying more traffic in the TEs and safelists. Or waiting for the scaling effect to take place over time. Or getting higher commissions from the same effort.
I have now found just the way to do it. The program I want to tell you about has
21 detailed steps that are full of pure content. Not only that, but the support I get there is awesome! I have learned a ton of things already, and I’m not finished reading all the material and watching all the videos yet.
This program will show you how you can go about getting higher commissions, in the range of $1000 or more. For example, if you promote a $10 product and you get a 50% commission, that is one thing. If you promote a $50 product and you get a 50% commission, that is better. If you promote a $100 product and get a 50% commission, that is even better. And it is possible to do all three with the same amount of effort. You might think, yes, but maybe I will get less customers. That is possible, since the price is higher, but to get the same profits, you need less customers when you promote a higher-priced product. That is what this is about.
I invite you to take a look at this video:

Make sure you watch the video until the end. Or if you prefer reading, there is also a link on the page to the written description of the program. I’m sure you will find it interesting.
Don’t hesitate to ask me if you have any questions!

First of all, I want to extend my best wishes to you for the New Year! I hope 2014 proves to be a great year for all of us!
There are a couple things I would like to talk about in this post. First, there is a new site that just launched that explains how to use the trackers in Trck.me. It is free to join and you will find it here:
It contains a series of videos that explain several of the features. Tracking is a must if you want to weed out the good from the bad and focus on the sources that are giving you the most signups. I’ve been personally using Trck.me for more than a year, and it is great!
NOTE: The rest of this post is no longer relevant, as AutopilotDownlines has been shut down in February 2015.
Now for the Inactive part in the title of this post! For most programs, when you join, you get your referral URL and you choose if you want to promote it or not. Many times, you will find those programs in the downline builders in other programs, so naturally you insert your IDs in those downline builders in the hopes of getting referrals.
There is a program, however, that has a little downside, if I may say it that way. If you joined AutopilotDownlines in the past (which is a great downline builder, by the way!), but have not clicked on any of the links in the emails you received since you joined, you are most probably inactive.
The owner has set up this program so that any inactive members stop receiving referrals. These referrals instead are joining the programs under the owner. So if you have entered your AutopilotDownlines ID in other downline builders, you may want to make sure you remain active so that you can get the referrals that you should receive from your promotion efforts.
It is easy to do. All you have to do to remain active is click on the “Click HERE” yellow button in the Stats email that you receive every Friday, which has this title: “Friday tracking stats from Autopilot Downlines!”
When you click on that button, you can also click on the red “back office” link to get your referral URL on the next page, where you can also click on the yellow “Edit All” link to sign up to the programs that you don’t already belong to and enter all of your missing IDs.
By clicking on the button in the weekly email each Friday, you will ensure that you remain active in AutopilotDownlines so that you can keep any referrals that you are entitled to. 🙂

As you may already know, I’m an affiliate with SFI, which is one of the most solid online businesses you can have today! It has a great track record of 16 years, and they are constantly improving the program to help affiliates be successful.
One of the components of SFI is their online store, TripleClicks, where you can buy and/or sell new and used items and win stuff at up to 95% off by bidding in PriceBenders Auctions. Many items are auctioned each day, such at electronics (Apple iPad Mini, Samsung phones, tablets, etc.), silver bars and coins, DVDs, watches, gift cards, etc. And of course various SFI products such as bundles of affiliates and subscriptions to the Int’l Assoc. of Home Business Entrepreneurs (IAHBE).
Well, I just wanted to let you know that I won an auction last Friday night! It was a busy week, so I didn’t have the time to write about it until now. 🙂
I won a Silver76Pack–Silver Bar (1 Ounce) + 75 TCredits for $1.94, and I only needed 39 bids to win! I should bid more often! LOL! So I ended up with more Tcredits after I finished bidding than before I started. Very cool!
My strategy was simple: I set a goal of 200 bids to see what would happen. I was in a good position right from the start, as people let my bid go down nearly to zero before making another bid. After a while, nobody made a bid and I won the auction.
All the auctions are not the same, and sometimes, there are people who use the autobid feature, or there are two or more people who make bid after bid in the hopes of making the others quit. I guess when that happens, it may be better to take a wait and see approach, while other times it’s a good thing to be more aggressive. Also, remember that luck plays a part in any auction. In any case, there are cool items to be won by those who bid!

Wow! Three years already! My last blog post was on October 14, 2010. An eternity!
So many things happened since then. When I started this blog, I was trying PPC (pay-per-click) on Google Adwords. Not anymore. I was using VitalViralPro to track my results, while I’m now using Trck.me instead. I tried many different things, programs, courses, etc., with poor results. But I am a lot more focused now in my promotions. I’m concentrating my efforts on traffic exchanges and safelists, and while I’m promoting a wide range of products, they are mainly integrated into a very effective system that produces great results. So all I have to do is promote one link, and I’m building downlines in several programs all at once, while building my list at the same time. And the best thing is that my downline can also use the same system to help them build their downlines as well!
I wanted to start blogging again but was always putting it back. Well, I have now refreshed the content around my blog posts and I hope that I will be disciplined enough to publish regularly from now on. Feel free to post your comments below! And I’m using the CommentLuv plugin, so your last post title will accompany your comments! (provided you have a blog, of course!)

If you are surfing traffic exchanges without tracking your results, you’re probably wasting credits and time.
Personally, I’m using VitalViralPro to track my results. VVP, for short, allows you to easily track your click-throughs or your signups, or both, even for third-party pages that you don’t own. You can see the results for 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month or 3 months.
The results I am showing you below are for the traffic exchanges that provided the biggest amount of signups for the number of hits sent to this squeeze page for the last three months (SU/hits %). VVP gives me a column with the hits, a column with the signups, and a third column with the SU/hits ratio for each traffic exchange.
Traffic exchanges that gave me the best signup ratio in the last three months:
Source Hits SU SU/hits
1. DeepSpaceTraffic____________ 339 5 1.47
2. 3x6surf________________________ 94 1 1.06
3. ThumbVu______________________ 595 6 1.01
4. Sweeva_______________________ 4547 29 0.638

39. FreeTrafficWorld____________ 9567 6 0.0627
40. TrafficShowDown____________ 3391 2 0.059
Obviously, some TEs received less hits than others, but the interesting part is the signups ratio. This gives me a good indication of where I should be surfing: at TEs that produce the most signups per hits!
So, each day before I begin surfing, I log into VVP to check which TEs are high on the list. I then compare these with TECommandPost, which lets me know how many Unassigned and Assigned credits I have at each TE. If I see that one of the TEs listed on VVP has a lot of Unassigned and/or Assigned credits, I go to the next one on the list, and so on, until I have selected all the TEs I want to surf during my session.
It’s good to know where your hits and signups are coming from!

I have just updated my blog with a new Twitter Blog Widget!
I was previously using TweetMyBlog to show my latest tweets on my blog, but due to Twitter changes, they will discontinue their service on August 15. Consequently, I went to the Twitter website to fetch a new widget for my blog.
Here is how I did it:
- First, you need to log into your Twitter account.
- Then scroll down to the bottom and click on Goodies in the footer menu.
- On the Twitter Goodies page, you can choose a Tweet Button, which will allow people to easily post a tweet about your website on their Twitter timeline; a button, like the one I have in the upper right corner of my blog above (look for the Follow Me On Twitter bird); or a widget to show your latest tweets on your blog. This is the one we’re looking for here. Click on Widgets.
- You now need to select My Website if you want to put your widget on your website, or Facebook if you want to put your widget on Facebook. Select My Website.
- You now have 4 choices, which are self-explanatory: Profile Widget, Search Widget, Faves Widget or List Widget. Since what you want to do is post your own tweets on your blog, click on Profile Widget.
- You can now Customize Your Twitter Profile Widget. Every time you make a change, just click on the Test Settings button at the bottom, and you will see how your widget looks on the right. You can change your Preferences, the Appearance and the Dimensions of your widget. You can show any number of tweets and change the color of every item, from the links to the background. Feel free to experiment to get just the look you want for your blog.
That’s it! When you are happy with the way your widget looks, click on the Finish & Grab Code button, and copy and paste the code where you want your widget to appear on your blog. You can see mine on the right of this page.
Now every time you make a new tweet, it will automatically show up in real time on your blog widget! Enjoy!

You must have seen it by now: some of your Twitter friends promoting a site promising people to get them thousands of followers. You guessed it, I’m talking about BillionFollowers. It looks exciting, you visit the site and you start thinking, wow, imagine having all these new followers in my account! Very tempting indeed.
However, before joining, be sure to read their TOS. To become a member, you must give them your Twitter credentials (login details) and allow them to post to your Twitter feed every 4 hours. Can you imagine that? I don’t even tweet 4 times a day right now (although I should post more often!). If their bot posts an ad for their site on my Twitter account every 4 hours, my legitimate tweets will get lost in all that spammy promotion of their site. Yes, spammy.
The principle of the site is good, everyone (or at least every marketer!) wants more followers. It’s why we all join Twitter, right? To broadcast to the largest audience possible? It’s the endless tweeting of the same ads that is bad. If they were offering the same service, but letting members promote by themselves or set the frequency of the postings to once a day, or even once a week, it would be a lot better. What good is it if people start to unfollow you because they just can’t stand these BillionFollowers ads that you keep on posting over and over? (well, not you, but the site you gave access to your account).
As more and more people join this site, Twitter will become polluted with all these same identical ads popping all over all the time. Guess what? My bet is that the mighty Twitter machine will put its foot down and say “Enough!” When that day comes, you will not want to be a member of that site with all these annoying ads in your Twitter feed and Direct Messages… or your account just might be swept away in the process… Just a thought. It is possible that nothing as dramatic will ever happen.
Of course, you can still join as a VIP member. I was not able to find out how much it costs, so I guess you have to join to see that. VIP accounts are exempt from automatic tweets for promotional purposes. Is it worth it? I have no idea. Will you get your money’s worth? There’s only one way to find out. I guess it depends on what you want from your Twitter account.
In the end, one of the best ways to get more followers is to look for people who are like-minded, meaning people who are following the same people as you do or who are talking about the same things as you do. Yes, it will take more time than joining a site promising the world, but you will annoy less people in the process. And as you start manually following more people, you will find that more people are starting following you! Some people will follow you back just because you followed them first, and other people will start to follow you because you are following someone they are following… Viral marketing at its best!
Follow me on Twitter, I will follow you back!

I was on a conference call last night with Gary Ambrose and Keith Wellman. They called it their first annual Pay-it-Forward live teleseminar, and they had promised to share three gifts of extreme value with the call attendees. In Gary’s own words, they were going to give us a ton of super valuable stuff, including something that has been worth nearly 500 grand to his business over the past few years.
I had high hopes, and I was expecting something really cool, like access to a software, maybe, or a really effective traffic generating tool, strategy or technique. Turns out they were giving 1) a recorded video presentation where Gary exposed the 7 current biggest niches and sub-niches, 2) a free ticket to their Gateway to Wealth Live Event that will take place October 23, 24, 25, 2009 in Texas, and 3) a free one-on-one meeting with them for those who were on last night’s call that went to the event. The free ticket was in fact a refundable $97 fee. You pay to register, you are refunded at the event if you show up.
I couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed by those gifts. After the few emails I had gotten promising me something really exciting, that was not what I had expected at all. Don’t get me wrong, people who will attend this event will probably learn valuable lessons and receive great tips. Good for them, but I will not be there.
The rest of the call was somewhat interesting, Gary and Keith giving a little bit of info on their respective backgrounds. Gary Ambrose grew up in a wealthy family, his father being a top executive in a big pharmaceutical company. He died when Gary was 15, though. Gary went on to be somewhat successful, but had his big break when he decided to change his belief system and started to believe that he could go all the way to the top. As for Keith Wellman, on the opposite, his family never had a lot of money. He had been doing Internet Marketing for a few years, but nothing was working. So one day, he wrote an angry comment on a forum and Mike Filsaime called him. Mike subsequently invited Keith to a live event, paying his way in and his expenses (all but $100), and that was when Keith met Gary Ambrose. Since then, he has become a very successful Internet marketer.
Well, that’s about it. I hang up one hour into the call, and it was not over yet. All in all, a somewhat disappointing call for me.
