The Art of Keeping Things Boring

I was poking around some of the stats recently from when we first launched Click Track Profit way back in 2010. Man, we were fired up.

We came up with crazy terms like drip feed marketing. Referral maximizer. Downline Pass Thru technology. It’s funny looking back…

One of things we preached was the slow and steady approach. Our business model was set up to excite new members but teach them that true success was found in doing the little things, every day over time.

Crazy concept in 2016 right?

We see in traffic exchanges that so many people jump online and if they don’t get huge results in 30 days or less, they give up, start the vicious cyhcle of the internet marketing vortex of doom and ride off into the sunset…

But here is Click Track Profit…

6 years later. Paying out almost $225,000 in commissions.

Still growing by dozens of new members every single day.

Pretty boring right?

I mean we never really launch anything new, we’ve also tried over the past few years to not cause too much drama lol (especially yours truly and my big mouth)

Yet we’re still here. Heck to think about it, the last program we launched was ListViral back in 2015 but I digress.

I think that again is the true secret to success in the traffic exchange industry. The ability for marketers to not only build their brand and build their mailing list, but also to have the patience that the majority of other surfers don’t have.

It’s rough, no denying it.

Especially when you read about the instant results, instant success and instant ‘wins’ talked about around the internet….

But the real win, I truly believe this in all my heart and soul, is that crazy concept of patience. The whole ‘Plus 1‘ thing. That whole…Stay the course model.

Crazy…I know 😉

  1. Thanks Jon! Staying the course can be tough. It’s been slow, yet progressive with quite a few bumps along the way. One more week and I will be able to say I made it through a whole year.. If I can do this with everything i have going on in my life..anyone can! and yes, it takes a lot of patience

    1. Huge!!!! First year is always tough. Then comes the second, third, fourth lol

      Keep on, keeping on…It sounds like a cliche, but it’s the truth.

  2. One of the biggest issues I see is that people don’t see this as a proper business. They put a little time in and little seems to happen so they quit. Real businesses seldom see any financial return immediately. Often it can take years before a business becomes a successful enterprise.

    This business is no different.

    I see it like a water pump. You pump the handle and nothing seems to happen, but deep down in the ground the water is beginning to rise. Stop pumping and the water sinks to the bottom again. Keep pumping and don’t give up, sooner or later you’ll be drinking the water of success.

    1. Yessir, the old Zig Ziglar example. Love it!

      Yeah people give up way too easily but I think you hit the nail on the head….It’s because very few actually treat it like a business to begin with.

  3. Great stuff Jon, I’ve been at this for awhile since 2009 and there was many times I thought about packing it in, But something kept me going. Now after many bumps in the road I think I’m getting closer and closer to My Ah Ha Moment then again maybe I’m not as close as I think I am

    1. To be honest, we’re never as close as we think we are…Because there is always more to grow and learn from. But the results are there for the folks that stick with it.

  4. “That crazy concept of patience… ” Sure works for me. I earn a bit here, a bit there, doesn’t seem like much but the bits and the buckets keep growing, because I am very patient. I’ve earned about $265 from Click-Track-Profit (thanks TimTech) and over $3,110 in my Paid-To-Click project. It’s easy spare time work. Anybody can do this… if they have patience.

  5. That’s Awesome Tame Bear I’m closing in on $250 earned from Click Track Profit and I’m already up t0 $145.00 earned at Te Pays and overall looking through my Pay Pal I’ve done pretty good but its been in bits and pieces a little here a little there. I’m hoping I get to the point where I’m earning $100’s every week from multiple programs that would be Awesome and would shut many mouths in my personal live

  6. We need to be reminded often, turtle up people!. I can’t believe I’ve been in CTP for six years but oh boy, it’s still the basis of what I do online. And it took a while before I started earning there and then Trck.me and RR and Adkreator and all the other places as well.

    Keep up the great work Jon.
