To Chat Or Not To Chat…

I’m almost done my little ‘siesta’ and am about to leave the Toronto airport for my trip back to Edmonton. I’ve got to say, the trip was a lot of fun but I’m very excited to be going home and back to work. Sounds weird huh? But when you love what you do for a living, working isn’t work. It’s what I live for =)

Anyways, during my 10 days away from the industry, I kept up to date with emails and updates from around the industry. Something I noticed since the launch of Live Traffic Network, has been the request by a few to remove chat from surfing. As well, there has been rave reviews of the chat feature so…

It’s no secret. I’m a big fan of live chat while surfing and I think it can be one of the most effective ways to brand yourself and your online businesses but I digress. I do not want to stand on my soap box…I want to hear what YOU think?

Does chat belong in surfing?

Have you seen better results? Or less results? Since the popularity of chat surfing has risen.

What has been your experience?

What do you think of having an ‘On / Off’ switch for chat?

I’ll check your comments and responses throughout the day but I hope to open my MacBook tomorrow morning to floods of comments and shared experiences. I can’t wait to hear what you think about social surfing and live chatting…

The Worst Kept Secret Ever

I’m sitting in my hotel room in Ft. Lauderdale. I just woke up to the most magnificent sunrise I have seen in years and hey the warm South Florida air wasn’t too shabby either. I’m about to get on the boat for my little excursion to the Caribbean so I thought I should write before I’m ‘disconnected’ from the outside world LOL

O.K., funny story…As soon as I touch down in Florida my cell phone went bye bye and hasn’t worked for two days now. I guess this is a test for me. To see if I can actually ‘be on vacation’ without checking my email every twenty minutes. A year or so ago, I could have never done it but nowadays I’ve got the best partners on planet earth to hold the fort down while I’m away…

Not earth shattering news because it’s been the worst kept secret ever *lol* but we’ve made it official with the launch of TimTech LLC. Take a sprinkle of the programming expertise of Tim Linden, mix it with the genius of Justin Ledvina and then throw in some gritty ‘T.E. Guy’ Jon Olson and you’ve got Tim Tech!

We took all of our businesses (which include but not limited to I Love Hits, StartXchange, Sweeva, ClickTrackProfit, TE Toolbox and Ad Kreator) and kreated one of the largest companies the traffic exchange industry has seen. And this is a real company, no longer let’s throw things on the wall and see what sticks, we have a fantastic game plan in store for Tim Tech and we are only getting started.

So thank YOU, to ever single customer and member of each of our programs. We can’t wait to show you what we have planned and thank you for your business and support throughout the years…

Signed – Jon Olson – Disconnected for a week…(Not so scary anymore).
