TE List Builder Will Change Traffic Exchanges….Again!

April 2016. I made a bold prediction…

I stated ‘TE Pays Would Change The Traffic Exchange Industry Forever‘ and things looked pretty good. The focus was on building lists, and creating residual income using nothing but traffic exchanges…

What’s amazing is that a year and a half later, I’m still getting a weekly pay check from TE Pays!

However things changed last year as we are all aware…

The drama, the payment processor issues, the penny surfers…Traffic exchanges took a massive hit and they have been waiting for something or someone to step up and do things…A little bit different.

The guys at TE Pays did just that!

This past week they took the site offline and did a major re-design and re-launch which introduced the industry to…..TE List Builder!

This. Thing. Is. Awesome!

So obviously I’m a huge fan of this program for a few reasons and I’m going to go over those right now and proclaim again…This program WILL save the traffic exchanges!

1. It’s Still…All About Building Your List
– So awesome to bring the focus back to building lists. The original TE Pays did that but this system takes it to a whole other level. Think of this program as ClickTrackProfit – For list building training! Step by step list building training is exactly what this industry needed!

2. Step By Step List Building Training
– Like I mentioned about, this is step by step list building training. The NewFire Marketing team does a great job of training members how and WHY they should be building their lists using traffic exchanges. The training is fun and the added XP for completing each step makes the learning addicting ūüôā

3. It’s…Literally ‘Done For You’ – One of the biggest problems in this industry isn’t convincing people they need to build their lists…It’s getting them to actually SEND things to their lists. And the number 1 hurdle is that most people don’t know what to write in their emails. TE List Builder solves that problem with fantastic email series that you simply upload to your favorite autoresponder and presto…Problem solved!

(Depends on your account level but the top level gets up to 11 emails to create your email series!)

4. It’s EverGreen…Still
– The commissions have been coming in from TE Pays since April 2016 each and every week and I expect that to continue with this system…Why? It’s evergreen! List building NEVER goes out of style and it brings people back to the beauty and power of traffic exchanges…Building a list and building a personal brand!

5. It Embraces Team Building
– What’s better than building your lists and building your income? Helping others to do the exact same thing. TE List Builder includes teams tonetwork with others and build networks of amazing people, working towards a single goal. I love it and hey…I even started a team that you should join..Hint hint team name is List Nerds ūüėČ

All in all, this program rocks from top to bottom. When TE Pays launched last year I knew it was going to be popular because of how it was put together and this is no different. It took everything that was working and added so many amazing new features.

This is the MUST join program for the traffic exchange industry this year and I do believe with things like this, we’re headed in the right direction!

The Rich Review – An Introduction

It finally happened!  Jon (messed up and) gave me posting access here!

Hi!  My name is Richard Taylor, and I am a TE addict!

Yes, it’s true!¬† I began using TEs early in 2001.¬† After the sale of an¬†offline business¬†in the previous Century, I came online to see what I could find.¬† What I discovered was an amazing opportunity for new business development.¬† Although I had used the internet in my offline business since 1990, what I found was something totally different, requiring new skills, and a different outlook on potential.¬† I jumped right into the deep end of the pool and set out to see what I could accomplish.

Like many others, I was brought into the world of TEs seeking advertising venues for an affiliate program.  What I found, though, was NOT what you see today.

There was only a handful of TEs at that time, and they had 4:1 ratios with 60 SECOND (not a typo, a full minute) timers!¬† There were no ‘upgrades’ for better ratios/timers, it was what it was.¬† And it¬†WORKED!¬† Very well!

I got my first commissions check (yes, a real check Рin the mail) from using TEs.  I was hooked, hard!

I found myself looking forward to surfing, finding new sites, seeing what others had to offer.  I spent hours exploring, reading and learning.

It was from doing this that I found the “Massive Passive Advertising Machine (MPAM)” in October 2001.¬† ID #762, I got in on the ground floor of a program built around using TEs!¬† It is from the community discussions there that I first met Jon Olson, and a host of others, that would play a crucial part in my development in the upcoming years.

It began a chain of events that changed how I looked at business online, and TEs.

  • In November 2001, Stephen Ayer and I bought a script and released TrafficRoundup.com.¬† It was one of the first TEs to offer a game while surfing, the “Catch a Cow” multiple choice game, that awarded random credits for playing.¬† It was a 4:1 ratio with a 60-second timer, 2-tier upgrades.
  • During the same month, Robert Fortin and I formed the RX2 Group (later changed to Rx2Central), and bought a struggling safelist program with 20K members that we transferred¬†to the ‘new’ format SafeLister was making popular, credit-based¬†emails.¬† It was named, for lack of creativity, the RX2 Safelist.
  • In December 2001, Michael Russell (owner/creator of MPAM) and I bought ILoveHits.com from its original founder with approximately 50K members.¬† 4:1 ratio, 60-second timer, 2-tier with upgrades.¬† (It was later redesigned, released on a new script, and inactives¬†were purged)
  • In 2002, RX2Central, in conjunction with Jon Olson, released TrafficBuck.com, the first “Pro-Only” TE model.¬† 4:1 ratio, 30-second timer, 2-tier paid levels.
  • Shortly after, RX2Central created/released ClickCrazey.com, the first ‘Theme Based’ TE featuring “Crazey Jon” – a mad scientist that recreated the TE model (guess where we got his name from?).¬† 3:1 ratio, 30-second timer (later reduced to 15-second), 3- tier with upgrades.
  • In late 2003, Jon Olson took over ILoveHits.com, and made it what it is today!
  • In 2004, RX2Central, working with Jon Olson, Robert Puddy, and Josh Ditty, released Blogazoo.com, the first “Blog Only” based TE operated on a custom script.¬† It featured the “Gazoo” which was a text-link based rewards program that was inserted into blogs to reward people for reading.¬† It also had a ‘like’ system that generated higher view ratios for user-rated popular sites and in-depth profiles with chat capability.¬† 3:1 ratio, 30-second timer, 3-tier with upgrades.
  • In 2005, Focus 4 the Future Inc, a cooperative with Robert Puddy, was formed.¬† We produced offline seminars focused around online business development.¬† Seminars were presented around the United States and Great Briton.¬† Each U.S. seminar also had a “TE focused” discussion group to enhance growth, innovation, and foster an environment whereby owners worked together – hosted in conjunction with Jon Olson.
  • FocusPoints.com, the first TE rewards system, was also launched that allowed multiple TEs to offer “Loyalty Points” to people surfing that could be exchanged for upgrades, credit packages, and physical products from a central program.
  • During all of this, RX2Central also owned numerous other sites from “TE Rating”¬† and link-tracking programs, to various blogs around an assortment of topics.
  • In 2006-2007, I sold all my remaining interests to focus on an offline business opportunity, made possible by affiliations from within the TEs.

[ Some dates are approximate.¬† I’m old, memory isn’t what it once was! ]

Yes, what I found in those early TEs changed my life, literally, both online and off.  Not a single one of those opportunities would have ever happened had it not been for me, sitting up for hours on end, surfing and talking to others doing the same thing.  It rocked!

I never really forgot about TEs, just focused on other, offline, ventures.  Recently, I have found myself having a greater online presence, and looked towards TEs once again to see how they could be beneficial.  And, of course, I started asking Jon for input, which led me to where we are now . . . here!

I truly believe in the potential of TEs.¬† The model is not dead, or even on life support, by any means.¬† In fact, I think the opportunity for growth is far greater today than many seem to think.¬† Sure, there have been some ups/downs, the base has changed since I was last directly involved, and most of the owners today I don’t know.¬† But here I am!

Don’t think I came back with my rosy colored glasses on, though!

I am an advocate for TEs, but also for change within the model.

I am looking forward to meeting new people, discussing ideas, and trying to find my way on this path the journey has placed me on.  Join me as we forge a direction to travel here, and see what opportunities await us.  As always, by working together towards a common goal, everyone benefits.

I will try and keep future posts shorter, but don’t hold your breath!¬† If you know me from the CTP Skype room, the TE Mastermind video conference Jon hosts (Haven’t joined us there yet?¬† Ask Jon to be included!), or the other posts I make on “The Farm” at Plus1Daily – you know the chances are slim!


P.S.:¬† I need a ‘name’ to call this.¬† The Rich Review was just for introduction.¬† Ideas?



With Sincere Thanks

Richard Taylor
