How To Get Massive Results With ThumbVu

I’ve been itching to get this blog post out. Since TimTech acquired ThumbVu last week, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time surfing and checking out the inner workings of this popular traffic exchange. Today I want to share a few tips and tricks that I think can really make your results soar!

The first is obvious I think, because ThumbVu is a social traffic exchange, the more active in chat you are, the better. People respond to people who look to be on the fore front of any program, and no one has yet to stake claim as being the ‘ThumbVu’ expert. Get out there, and be visible. There is no reason why you cannot connect with THOUSANDS of like minded people, right now on ThumbVu!

The second tip I think that could really make your results soar is the biggest…Make your designs pop! The way this program is set up, people aren’t guaranteed to visit your site unless they choose it from the selection of 3 thumbnails before they load a page…Talk about a HUGE opportunity!

I suggest kreating a splash or squeeze page that doesn’t look like everything else. So much so that I have avoided standard affiliate pages when they come up in the thumbnails. Yup, that’s right, I’ve actually seen standard pages that I have avoided like the plague. DUSAP!!!!

Remember, your site gets loaded into a thumbnail BEFORE people see the site in it’s entirety, so this presents you with a big opportunity to stick out from the crowd. If you thought having a ‘Purple Cow’ kind of splash page was important in other traffic exchanges, it’s so much more important in the environment!

Take these two tips and I can almost guarantee huge results from your advertising in ThumbVu. You are only limited by the restrictions of your imagination when it comes to designing killer campaigns…What will you kreate today? And how will you embrace the huge social opportunity that ThumbVu presents?

  1. Hey Jon great points.

    I have always had just a rotator in Thumbvu without much success. But once I started using a single splash that was bright and draws someones curiosity my clicks went up.

    Anyways have a great day.

  2. Great Advice Jon! But, I haven’t joined ThumbVu yet, and have a question. Is it easy to use? I am not as technological as most people are. I have been getting hits to my site, but I have to spend all day clicking at several different traffic exchanges. Will ThumbVu work for me?

  3. Sherry – I think it will work for everyone. If you enjoy the aspects of social surfing and the traffic exchanges as a whole, it’s a good fit.

  4. First off if I haven’t congratulated you guys yet for acquiring Thumbvu let me do so now.

    Secondly, without doubt ThumbVu has the potential to change teh face of TE’s forever – the social and thumbnail features are great but don’t forget the article feature within Thumbvu which, I believe gets indexed by Google and does generate real viewers to sites.

  5. @Marks – Yes, the article directory is a rather underutilized feature of Thumbvu, dare I say, abused? The last I looked, I thought it was in need of some kind of moderation. The content I found was of abysmal quality. I think it has quite a big potential, though. The only other TE I remember with an article directory is EH4U, where it is quite prominent. There are possibly others but I can’t remember.

    This is not the place, but since we are on thumbvu, I have a pet grievance :) I find the “surfbar” mildly irritating. It pops up in front of pages at the most inconvenient times and places. Would it be possible to keep it minimized until, say, we hover the hidden button?
