The State of TimTech

Heart On My Sleeve Time:

The traffic exchanges were starting to get on my last good nerve. It seemed every time I opened my trap or TimTech did anything, we got back stabbed or thrown under the bus. And I know why, we cause a lot of this ourselves but at the end of the day we know where our heart is. It’s in online business. It’s in helping people. It’s in paying record commissions. It’s in every thing we do.

These past few weeks, we’ve really got a kick in the rear. There’s been a breath of fresh air in TimTech and it does come from Sitizens as Tim sums it up pretty good in his latest blog post. We are doing things for our happiness and our customers. The people that dislike us or what we do, meh….You kinda had your chance to curb stomp us while we ‘took it easy’ this summer but alas…We kicked our own butt ;)

Here’s a few things on top of Sitizens which we have been playing with…

First, is The Fish Bowl. Justin and me have been DYING to do this for months and we finally jumped into it this week. Basically it’s 24-7 live streaming of our Skype calls. That’s right, we are being completely transparent and opening up exactly how we think and how we communicate for all to see. Nothing hidden, nothing held back. Stop by anytime and come hang out with the Nerds…Or just lurk and clown us behind our backs. We don’t mind either way LOL We just love being transparent and we think The Fish Bowl is something new and exciting in the business.

We also fired up Traffic Exchanges Care again for our 6th campaign to bring awareness to the need for fresh water around the globe. To date, we have raised over $6,000 directly from the traffic exchange industry and that translates into fresh clean drinking water for 300 people for….20 years! That’s right. 300 people on planet earth will have clean drinking water for 20 years because of YOU, the traffic exchange surfer and owner!

Two simple projects but they have really got TimTech back into the swing of things along with Sitizens. We’re amped. We are refreshed and we are ready to crush it like never before. Oh yeah, we are giving away $1000 EVERY WEEK in our Tournament at Sitizens. Not prizes, not banner impressions, not credits, not over-hyped marketing ebooks…Real cash! We hope you enjoy it and good luck in the tournament!

Now back to doing what we do best…Putting passion into the traffic exchanges!

JV Launches Are A Load Of….

In the past few years, I’ve got a very sour taste in my mouth from the ‘internet marketing’ industry. From scheme after scheme, fake guru after fake guru, list building ‘expert’ to the next…It’s all a bunch of nonsense that’s single purpose is to get in your pocket, sell you a dream, rinse and repeat…

It’s such a foreign concept to see people stick with anything these days, it’s no wonder these businesses even exists any more. But you know what, there is a saving grace…The community!

The communities within this industry don’t stand for garbage anymore. They refuse to become another ‘sale’ to the people who have controlled the industry for so long…Gone are the ‘pitches’, it’s now the era of the community.

And when a community backs something, boy oh boy…Who needs JV launches these days anyways?

Case in point, two examples. The first, the obvious one would be Matt Baker’s Surfing Socially which launched at MIDNIGHT Sunday…Yes, you read that right, midnight on a Sunday. Not your ‘guru’s expert’ opinion of the best time to launch but with the community backing him, Matt launched and after 24 hours, the numbers are quite impressive…

Here’s his ‘launch plan’, Matt became a member of the TE Live community. Matt never asked for anything, he gave himself and his time to increase the value of the community. He mentioned to people he was launching a program and the people FLOCKED to him to help him launch it. Crazy huh? But it works…

The next, Legacy Hits and the team of Marcus, Ken and Rodney. This is arguably the best performing traffic exchange on the net right now and there is a reason because of it. First of all these guys are fantastic owners, each one of them have invested lots of time into their businesses but here’s the kicker…Focus.

While some owners promote everything around them, even programs they don’t own…The Legacy guys promote one thing and one thing only…Legacy Hits. This is pretty much as simple a concept as it comes, yet so few ‘get it’…Focus on your business, put your all into it…The result, becomes what you see with Legacy Hits.

No JV launches, no hype, no ‘list building secrets’ were used in both these examples…Just hard work, time invested, the art of ‘giving’ before receiving and above all else, showing up, every day!

Imagine that…
