Have you seen all the new Traffic Exchanges?
I’m trying hard to decide if I am pissed or concerned or mystified.
Pissed, because I know that 80% of these have 0 chance to succeed. The owners buy the script, set up the site and wait for the money to roll in. 90% of the new places won’t have 300 active members at the end of 2013. 300 members IS NOT a viable site. No way to make it be viable…It takes numbers to succeed.
Concerned, because I am (trying) to earn a living here. I can’t figure out a way to make rampant failure be a positive for me. Makes me choose my spots very carefully.
Mystified, because I can’t for the life of me understand what the owners are thinking. If you are going to invest money into a venture, why not invest the time it takes to be successful? If you are going to invest time into a venture, why not invest the money it takes to make it go? I am confused.
The FOR SALE sign is out!
This morning, Feb.11, 2013, I saw my second TE for sale sign in general surf rotation this year. The one I saw listed SIX individual sites that I have never heard of. I’m not everyplace, but I do get around some. I’d think this would be a candidate for Blaine Jones “$100 per traffic exchange offer”. Blaine has a standing (I think it’s still standing) offer to buy your TE for $100 just so he can fold it up and put it to bed. I think there are well over 1000 traffic exchanges listed now, I hope Blaine has deep pockets. I wish him well…
The ownership team at Legacy Hits (Legacy, Social Ad Surf, Brand Me) have acquired Ninja Surf. This site is well designed, has a good usable script, and some membership. I’m betting that Ken and Rodney and Marcus will have Ninja Surf singing and dancing in very short order. Their track record is pretty impressive, and I am glad to see another quality site on the net. I’ve joined, and I recommend it, particularly if you want to get in on the ground floor and watch the changes. I predict Ninja Surf will be in the top 25 by year’s end. Remember, you read it here first!
One more thing
Another site that has come on the scene since Jan 1 that I am sure will make an impact is TE Racing League (TERL). NASCAR themed with all kinds of new wrinkles, this is an impact site for me. If you go to TERL today, you can sign up for this Sunday’s race. Yes, racing at a traffic exchange! It is great fun, and a rapidly growing site.
That’s it, I’m done. Good Monday to you!
