A Record Week For TimTech

Something amazing happened at TimTech last week. We hit a milestone, I didn’t think we would have this early in our companies history. For months, we have been paying well over $1000 a week in affiliate commissions. This was such an amazing number and really cemented our belief in the ‘evergreen’ affiliate product plan.

We caught a lot of heat for making our commission rate 30% across the board. We lost ‘friends’ because of it, we were told that we were crazy, that our business model would fail and well, that we were generally the worst thing to ever happen to traffic exchanges…

Last week we paid out $2427.43 in affiliate commissions.

That means our affiliates received the highest amount ever from TimTech and here’s the best part. We did it without launching a new program. We didn’t do it with ‘JV’ accounts. We didn’t do it with email pitches. The members did it. All we did was provide the services.

This is what happens when you put people before profits. When you understand the real power in business is not from a flashy OTO or a catchy video…But from people. And the community.

That was the BEST way we could have started 2012 and we are so pumped up for the year ahead. We promise to make our members the focal part of our business and the community to be the center piece of our brand. We have lofty goals now…We’re shooting for $3000 a week in affiliate commissions as an average by the end of the year.

Evergreen products and +1 everyday….It works!

It’s Official, ThumbVu Joins TimTech

I guess it’s not really a secret anymore, as we announced this via Twitter and TE Live last night but I guess a blog post from yours truly kinda cements the news…Yesterday TimTech LLC acquired ThumbVu.com from John Guanzon.

O.K., first I have to thank John for creating something so kick butt that when he approached us yesterday for the purchase, we literally jumped at the opportunity. I’m not joking either, I physically jumped up and ran to the bank…

John is a great guy and one of the best owners in traffic exchange history. He has created something with ThumbVu that cannot be found anywhere else online. He pioneered the mobile surfing aspect of ThumbVu and really embraced social surfing. He even co-wrote the book on Social Surfing with me.

I cannot thank him enough for the opportunity he presented TimTech along with his vision for this brave new area that the industry has grown into! Thanks man, we will make you proud!

On to ThumbVu and what this means to TimTech LLC. Plain and simple, it’s a perfect fit. This is kinda a dream come true for me because I think the ThumbVu brand falls perfectly with what TimTech is trying to do.

We plan on adding all the surfing badges, tiered and otherwise, to the system. We will NOT however change things up when it comes to how the program works. We did not buy a traffic exchange that needs much ‘work’, it’s working very well as is. We will however be adding the TimTech touch to spice things up and improve the program.

How about your feedback? We need it, we love it, we want to hear it. If there is anything you like, or dislike about ThumbVu, let us know. We know this program has a very unique community and identity so it’s critical to us that we hear what you, the membership, think!

ThumbVu has a bright future from it’s solid past, and that’s because of it’s members! Tell us what you think!
