The Day Social Media and Traffic Exchanges Understood Each Other

Today I would like to compare Twitter to a Manual Traffic Exchange.  Just about everybody knows twitter is a place to trade little blurbs of text with or without media attached to it with each other.  However, many may not know what a traffic exchange is.  The easiest definition of a manual traffic exchange is people sharing sites with each other and proving they are in front of their computer to view them.  If twitter were more like a traffic exchange the following would happen.

 

Every so often the icons in the top right would appear.  You would be asked to click on the matching icon.  This would prove that you are looking at twitter.

 

Obviously, twitter doesn’t need to do something like this because people willingly agree to receive the information from the people they follow.  But, what if it was just one giant pool of tweets and you wanted your tweet seen.  There would have to be some sort of a trade off system so everybody got their well deserved chance to be seen.

 

Wallah, after viewing one page you receive a credit.  That credit allows your page to be seen.
This is exactly what goes on in a manual traffic exchange.

 

Manual Traffic Exchange Target Market: Currently in manual traffic exchanges I see other traffic exchanges, online systems, tools, capture pages(list building), maybe a blog, and other odds and ends.  A lot of it has to do with online business.

 

This audience is motivated by wanting to get traffic to their website or advertisement.

The point of this is to show you how important the outreach to online business people on twitter is for the traffic exchange industry.

and the reverse is also true, online business people can see the value of traffic exchanges.

If you login and surf 100 pages at a Manual Traffic Exchange you quickly will understand the target market feel.

and by all means tweet this blog post out 😉

Lists are So About Engagement! Get a Response

Earlier I was talking about meeting people where they are, where they are comfortable.
Use Different forms of social media because some people prefer a specific platform.
Also, as people use different forms they are more likely to run into you.
In addition, provide value to people that might potentially be on your email list.

Now for the golden moment. This is something very very big for someone new to online marketing to understand. It literally is not the size of your email list or amount of twitter followers. The reason is that if nobody is listening there is never going to be any action taking or sale. This is why you should strive to make a connection with the people you are working with. You should supply them with value.

1,000,000 email subscribers or 100,000 twitter followers with 5 action takers is bad

1,000 email subscribers or 1,000 twitter followers with 100 action takers is better
Get the math?

Meet People Where THEY are at & Cater to Your Strengths

Why even do social media as a marketer? Duh, that is where ton’s of people are and a good message can be spread quickly for free. Today we’ll talk about using multiple platforms to reach people. The reason we do it is we want to find people where THEY are comfortable and hang out. If people hang out on facebook then I need to be there. If it’s twitter then I need to be there. You get the point. However, at what point does it become too time consuming to try and be EVERYWHERE?

I currently am dedicated to Twitter and Blab, a video platform. But, I also have a presence on Facebook, Linkedin, and YouTube. Of course, I am probably at places not listed, but, this brings up the point. I shouldn’t try to be absolutely everywhere. It would cost too much time and not have enough return.

I am satisfied hitting the big ones and concentrating where I feel comfortable and strong. I encourage you to make a presence on the traditional social media platforms and to find where you fit in the best. It will help your business grow.
