I admit it- I am addicted to traffic exchanges. There I said it. I am not ashamed of my addiction, I embrace it. Yahoo Dictionary defines addiction as : “The condition of being habitually or compulsively occupied with or or involved in something”. Yep, that’s me. I love traffic exchanges. I can’t wait to log on the Internet each day so I can find out what is happening in the traffic exchange industry. I love surfing. I love marketing. I love the social communities of each exchange. I love the affiliate income. I, Catherine White, am addicted to traffic exchanges.
I love surfing. I totally enjoy surfing different traffic exchanges. I love seeing what is being advertised. I love seeing how certain sites market to their members. I love seeing the creative pages people make to advertise their products. All these things inspire me in my own marketing.
I love marketing. I use traffic exchanges to market my own site. I love discovering which pages convert the best. I love figuring out which exchanges produce the best results. I love the feeling when I get a conversion.
I love the social communities. To me, it feels each traffic exchange has its own social community. I love exploring the social communities and discovering the type of people who are drawn to each exchange. I love seeing the impact these little communities have on the entire traffic exchange industry. I love making new friends and business partners.
I love affiliate income. I love getting the emails which say “You just earned a commission”. I love getting random payments in my paypal account. I love being able to use affiliate income to pay some of my household bills.
I loved the traffic exchange industry so much I decided to become an owner. I thought to myself – “Cathy, if you are going to put this much time in to something, you ought to own one of these things. Turn your addiction in to a business. Work at something you love to do.” 6 months later, Hot Flash Hits was launched. Thank you to my business partner, Jolynn, who has worked with me every step of the way. FYI- I think she is addicted, too.
