TEProfits is a system to build TE downlines for more “hands free” traffic, plus a strategy for upgrading in those TEs (also for more traffic) and having the cost of the upgrades offset by commissions earned from referrals in those TEs who also upgrade.
Risk is limited because the strategy is to upgrade in only one or two TEs first, earn commissions there, and then use those commissions to upgrade in more TEs for more traffic and commissions. This strategy depends on a reliable way to pay for upgrades and to get paid commissions on your referral sales.
As I am sure most are aware by now, there has been a big shift in the “free traffic” industry away from PayPal. For the most part, this has not been by choice. The basis for policy changes at PayPal are way beyond my pay grade, so I am not in any way casting blame. It is what is it.
(TEP has never offered PayPal as an option. But this is in no way an attempt to dissuade you from using PayPal wherever available. I personally use and recommend PayPal as a convenient way to shop online.)
These recent changes have had a very big impact on business and profit in the TE market, to say the least.
Many TE surfers and TE business owners have suffered setbacks due to PayPal policy changes. It has caused upgrade subscriptions to get cancelled, and many surfers have simply left the TE marketplace.
The TE market will recover. TE owners are implementing alternative payment processors to restore their affiliate business.
For traffic to be worthwhile, it needs to consist of people actually interested in the things being advertised rather than simply surfing to score points or prizes or pennies.
I personally believe this upset in the TE market is best in the long term. This shift could signal a renewed focus on quality traffic.
At TEProfits we have been using Credit Card and Payza as upgrade payment options for many years. Payza is also our preferred method of disbursing commissions.
We are now seeing a resurgence of online processor alternatives like Solid Trust Pay and BitCoin.
Please take the time to consider your payment options. Payza, Solid Trust Pay and BitCoin are likely your best choices in the free traffic market at this time.
Onward and Upward!
Getting attention in a Traffic Exchange “surfing” window has always been a challenge. You only have about one or two seconds to capture attention and create interest.
Nonetheless, TEP stands as proof it CAN be done effectively.
I don’t want to give away all my secrets in this blog post, but one “secret” that everybody knows is…
NEW SPLASH PAGES GET MORE ATTENTION!
Our “Traffic, Leads, and Cash” splash pages have a new look…
The link above takes you to a sample of the updated splash pages. This particular example is the version I am promoting inside DragonSurf. It targets members of DragonSurf.
You can target several of the core TEs we are using in TEP by a simple change in the URL. (&te=1, 2, 3 … 8)
Please see the links and instructions under Pro Splash Pages in the Pro Members Area inside TE Profits.
At TE Profits we love feedback!
And we listen. Our goal is to continually improve the site, training, and service to our members. Your feedback helps us all.
This week we streamlined the way the Traffic Report is branded with your links. The change was necessary largely due to the way the site has evolved. Without going into all the “why’s” about these updates… we’ll just jump right in…
First you will notice the main members page when you log in has changed. It is no longer the “welcome” page with an overview of the members area. The overview was fine, but…
Who has time for that?
Most members just want to know what to do and where to do it.
So now the first page when you log in is the Fast Start Guide. It makes perfect sense. Just jump in and get’r done!
Log in, follow the guide, or you can just work your way down the main menu on the left… which is also positioned out of the way for better page viewing.
Getting started is easy:
- Join the TEs in the Traffic Exchanges dowline builder
- Join the mailers in the Email Exchanges downline builder
- Click on “brander” to add your Traffic Wave link and TE Command Post links to the Traffic Report.
(The TE downline builder adds your links to those TEs in the Traffic Report.)
This update necessitated a small change in the Traffic Report TEs so the list matched the TE downline builder. (They are one-and-the-same now.)
As a result, the TEP Pro Lead System followup email series also had one small change. Out of the 25 emails, only email letter 21 was changed to incorporate a link to RealHitz4U.
Pro members can go to System Instructions in the Pro Members Area to download the updated email series, or simply log into your Traffic Wave back office and import the email series again. It will make the change automatically for you.
That’s it for now.
Please log into the members area and have a looksee. Leave a comment here, or feel free to contact us through the support ticket system with comments, questions, or suggestions.
We love feedback!
Ever heard of an Email Exchange?
You hopefully have, because we mention them inside the TEP training section, and have an Email Exchanges downline builder so you can get referrals and commissions in these great advertising programs.
What is the difference between a Traffic Exchange and an Email Exchange?
Both of these niche markets have one thing in common. Online marketers sharing webpages, lead capture pages, and affiliate links with other marketers. In Email Exchanges, we exchange email (using a viral mailer) rather than surfing to view webpages directly.
In one sense, Email Marketing is more work. In another sense, they are MUCH LESS work!
They can be more work because you create your own email to send to the list, rather than inputting the URL to an affiliate webpage already built for you.
But that’s also a good thing…
It’s much easier to stand out by creating your own unique headline and email ad copy than to create your own splash page advertisement in a TE.
Overall, these viral mailer programs are MUCH LESS work. After you create your email, you just CLICK SEND and the email goes to thousands. No need to click, click, click for credits in traditional Traffic Exchanges!
Does that mean Email Exchanges are better than TEs?
In some ways, yes. But we are not recommending Email Exchanges above Traffic Exchanges. The best strategy is to use BOTH.
NEW ADDITION IN MEMBERS AREA:
Our new site, EmailXProfits, is the perfect place to get your feet wet with email marketing. It’s more than just a mailer. It also includes training, a powerful marketing system, and a business plan to put you into profit with these advertising programs.
Even if you are already experienced with viral mailers, you can improve your results and catapult your profits starting now with Email Exchange Profits!
- Log into the TEP members area.
- Go to “Email Exchanges” on the main menu.
- Look for EmailXProfits at the top of the list.
- Join EmailXProfits using your TEP sponsor’s link.
- Enter your EmailXProfits link in the TEP Email Exchange builder so your TEP referrals will join EXP as your referral.
This next step is CRUCIAL, especially if you are new to mailers…
PUT THIS TO WORK FOR YOU.
Sounds obvious, I know. But if you have never used a mailer there can be a slight learning curve, and it can be scary. I still recall the very first email I sent using one of these sites. It was actually fun hitting the send button.
This post is already too long, so I’ll stop here. We plan to put out some more tips and training as we move forward into this exciting new year.
Take action. Log into the TEP members area and join EmailXProfits now!

Our relaunch contest for TEporfits is coming to a close and trust me it is close for some of these prizes.
With one week left now is the time to give it your all. Try finding new avenues to promote TEProfits outside of traffic exchanges.
We have added in a few more core exchanges to one of the downline builders and those are TrafficSwarm and TrafficAdBar.
These are two traffic exchanges which I have seen continued new sign ups on week after week.
Just another quick run down of what the prizes are for our relaunch contest that ends Oct 15th 2015
All month of September 1st – October 15th any sales generated will count as a ticket on your account. The top 10 people with the most tickets will win not only cash prizes but also silver bullion. (must live in lower 48 states to claim bullion, otherwise $10 per oz given in place)
1 – $50 + 10 oz Silver bar (*$150 value) $200 total
2 – $50 + 5 oz Silver bar (*$75 value) $125 total
3 – $50 + 1 oz Silver bar (*$15 value) $65 total
4 – $45
5 – $40
6 – $35

** In the event the winner does not live in the lower 48 states, $10 USD per oz will take the place and be paid via Paypal.
*** Prizes are, of course, in addition to your regular commissions!
Good luck to you all and go get em! It’s time to start earning real income from Traffic Exchanges.
One of the most common questions that comes up from TEProfits members is what they should do with the credits they are earning? Should the be pooled? Auto assigned? Or maybe a combination of the two?
A combination of the two works best. The ultimate goal is to have the site always in rotation with credits. This goes for the site, banner and possible text links (Some sites really eat up text links and I avoid them) But having a 468×60 banner and your site always in rotation means Continue Reading…
