The life-blood of every business is traffic and leads. What many fail understand is what to do with a lead. What is a lead? A lead is a potential sales contact or an individual or company that may express interest in your goods or services. For example, you may have marketing software that you think is the best in the world. In order for anyone to see it you must have traffic. In the world of online marketing collecting leads is an essential activity. The difference between getting a sale only and get a sale and keeping that email address is like night and day. The art of getting leads and keep that lead by way of email address can determine future success.
I'll take it a step further in regards to leads. When you hold on to that leads email address you will have a potential customer forever. That means your can advertise and sale your products to that individual over and over. This is what makes doing business a little easier. You don't have to constantly chase potential customer you will always have them. Some have said that if you have 1000 leads you will average $1 per lead per month. That would meant that you can average $1000 per month. You should now see the value of keeping leads and collecting them. The more leads the better. Recently, I came across a site that is like a lead magnet. I think that everyone can benefit from this site.

Traffic Exchanges is a way of getting eyeballs on your websites. Many have said that traffic exchanges don't work. Could be that some do not know how to use traffic exchanges properly. I like to use manual and auto-surf traffic exchanges to collect email address and to promote my social and business links. I have realized over the years that there is a wrong way and there's a right way. This simple strategy has worked for me. I sure it will work for you also. I'm going to focus on auto-surf traffic exchanges because getting the traffic is a little easier and there's less work in the long run.
Join a traffic auto-surf exchanges.
Go to the area where you can list your websites, text ads or banners. You can actually use all three.
List only two websites. I often use one traffic exchange link and then a business link. Normally, I
don't exceed promoting two links.
Start auto-surfing for credits or pay for credits, this will put everything on auto-pilot.
Now this is where the strategy comes in. This step could actually be the first step
You will join 5-10 traffic exchanges. Then promote only two links.
This is how the strategy will works.
You will promote either promote a manual traffic exchange or a auto-surf traffic exchange splash page.
The reason for this is to make your message to the viewers short and sweet.
If you could make your own splash pages that could be to your advance.
So, here is what the strategy looks like:
1-10 Traffic Exchanges (Auto-Surf or Manual)
Here is a list of my top 10:
1. 10K HITS
2. 247 AUTO HITS
3. ALEXA SURFING
4. AUTO TRAFFIC MYTH
6. HIT LINK
8. LINK COLLIDER
10. RANK BOOST UP
The final piece of the strategy is setting up the links on the 5 or 10 auto-surfing traffic exchanges.
