Copyright © Michael Laleye

In this article you will find great ways to use traffic exchanges to generate traffic for your internet home business website. If you are not familiar with traffic exchanges they are basically a system whereby you receive credits to click on other people's internet business websites and ads through a specific URL run by the traffic exchange company. When you sign up for a free traffic exchange you will be given a username and password as well as a members area where you can submit or edit URL's you would like to see shown on their network and keep track of how many credits you have earned by surfing other peoples pages. You can also earn lump sums of traffic credits for referring other members.

Tip #1: Use A Lead Capture
A lead capture page, also known as a splash page, is a web page that contains text fields for a user to input his/her name and e-mail address. It is marketed in order for the reader to receive something valuable such as information they have been looking for in exchange for their name and e-mail address. Being creative to attract people to sign up is the key. Some people offer a free gift such as an e-book or a helpful report on the subject in order to get the lead. It's almost like a sales letter with a sign-up at the bottom.

The reason you want to use a splash page is because, like yourself, most people are surfing traffic exchanges to gain credits for their own opportunity, and might not want to sign up for yours. Capturing e-mail addresses means you can continue to market to them later, and not waste your credits showing "one and done" web pages that do not allow you to create repeat visitors. Use your traffic exchange credits to promote these types of pages for your internet home business, they are type that let you to stay in contact with your visitor at a later date. It is always a good idea to include a simple privacy policy for your visitors, letting them know that their e-mail address will not be sold.

Tip #2: Build Your Downline Virally
The traffic exchange website you join will give you a private URL to promote their traffic exchange sign up. When a person signs up to use the traffic exchange through your URL you will receive, for example, 100 credits. This means that you did not have spend time surfing to earn them. Building your downline is an effective way to leverage your time and credit power. An even better way to leverage it is help the people you sign up to get sign up's themselves.

This way they have more of a benefit because they now can spend less time surfing for credits, and it benefits you because you also gain credits from the sign ups of the people you sponsor. Helping those you sponsor to build a downline is easy with the advent of viral downline builders whose purpose is the help you build downlines by putting an effective system in place to promote all the traffic exchanges you belong to from one page. These pages were designed to help your downline build their downlines, which earns you more credits as well. Promoted properly you can create a huge downline and gain tons of credits using a downline builder webpage to promote all of the traffic exchanges you are affiliated with.

These are the most effective ways to benefit from traffic exchanges. The credits you accumulate from building your downline and surfing can be directed to splash pages that get you leads. People who sign up for your newsletter, or that sign up to receive information from you about your products and services by e-mail are a re-occuring source of visitors to your internet home business website.
