Want Results? Increase Your Social Equity…

With the re-launch of the CTP Surf N’ Chat this past week, the opportunities for savvy business people to get some big time returns in their traffic exchange advertising was everywhere!

The debate is pretty much over, social chat in the traffic exchanges is the BEST way to get your brand and personal touch out there for everyone to see. You see, hands off marketing I think is dead. The ‘set it and forget’ model for business online is a dying trend. Sure there are things you should automate and certain aspects of your business that you can leave to technology, but the hands on, face to face interactions cannot be duplicated.

We live in this crazy industry where the term ‘internet marketer’ is the calling card yet very little marketing is done. This is internet BUSINESS and part of that business is your social influence and social equity in the communities and industry as a whole. Put simply, it’s a LOT harder to be a faceless and nameless username and make money online. The people that are known, the people that are visible, the people that interact with their peers, always get better results. Sure there are rules to the exception but it’s a lot easier (and more rewarding) to interact with folks!

With the social chat, you can do that right now! Imagine you are talking with a newer surfer, you offer them help and get them through something they are having issues with. Not only will that person notice you when you sites come up in rotation but there are people VIEWING the social interactions and that adds to your social equity. People will remember you and the acts of kindness you displayed and guess what will happen when you page comes up in rotation…

Sure people will debate this, it’s expected. But the proof is pretty simple…There’s more to business than just being a marketer…How about we concentrate more on the people rather than the numbers and the ‘automation’.

Here’s the big nugget for all this…If you are low on funds and don’t have a lot to invest in your business right now, invest in your social influence. Be there in front of people every day and help folks out. The pay back can be priceless!

Social Surf Chat – TimTech Style

So we were having a blast in the four TimTech traffic exchanges yesterday. Tim was busy at work with our brand new cross-TE chat service which has been quite a success so far and it’s only 24 hours old. We call it CTP Surf N’ Chat and it’s taking social surfing to a whole new level in the TimTech universe.

As you know, we have been BIG fans of social surfing and proponents of the importance of branding oneself not only in the sites but also in chat.

We truly believe that people do business with folks they know and like and the best way to get people to know you is to interact with them in a live environment. You are more likely to sign up for a program or service from someone who has actually talked to you rather than Username FancyUnicorns. Social chat has leveled the playing field and allowed regular surfers to knock it out of the park and get as many referrals as any ‘big list’ guru could through traffic exchanges.

Combine that with BEING in front of people, offering help and interacting with folks everyday…The opportunities are endless!

So the only missing piece to our puzzle was leveraging the ClickTrackProfit main hub with our chats. We wanted to create a big community and seeing that CTP is our ‘top of the funnel’, it made sense. However there were very strong micro-communities within StartXchange and I Love Hits…So this was going to be a challenge!

CTP Surf N Chat

I truly believe Tim hit it out of the park with this and I’m so excited for the future of this CTP Surf N’ Chat model. Combining all 4 traffic exchanges into one chat will allow for so much better customer support, will let chatters and surfers focus on one chat rather than 4 separate ones and allow for much better networking opportunities.

Let us know what you think or better yet, get involved and check out the new Surf N Chat today in any of the TimTech traffic exchanges.

It’s social surfing…TimTech Style 🙂
