CASH and Credits From Reading Mails


Do you like to read mails -- whether from your inbox or onsite?

Well, you can get paid for it, too!

Join these sites and get paid for reading their mails. You will also get a $5 sign-up BONUS at some of these sites.

Without much more ado, here are the sites where the generous admins offer us cash and credits for reading their mails:

Send My Solo
Opal Solo Ads
Advance Safelist
Better Day Ads
Galaxy Solo Ads
International Mails

Reading mails won't make you rich money-wise, but it will make you rich information-wise. 

You get to know new stuff around, new programs to learn from and to join -- and you never know, you may just hit the Mother Lode.

You also get lots of FREE solos, credits, and ad packs (banners and text link ads) to do your own mailings and promotions to the membership base.

But there's one thing you can do to increase your income from reading mails and joining the sites above -- you can promote the site links and get referrals.

Of course, you get additional cash and credits for having others join under you.

The beauty of it all is that EVERYONE gets to earn!

That makes online marketing so very worthwhile.

Hit Helper Gives You Traffic Exchange History


Hit Helper, a new site acquired by the amazing Mike Miller -- owner of many traffic sites -- will give you an invaluable lesson in traffic exchanges. These TEs, of which many are found on Band of Banners, will greatly help you reach many people as you promote your programs through banners and text ads.

Exciting mail and surf sites can also be found from this other blog of ours. Click on this link to see, thanks!

Another cool source of TEs is Marketers Unite where you can actually meet the owners and admins, too, as we featured them individually.

Since we're researchers, journalists, and marketers, we found it essential we all know the history of traffic exchanges. Who better to supply us that information than Mike Miller of Hit Helper! All the material below came from his aforementioned site.

Traffic Exchange History
Traffic Exchanges date back to the beginning of the web and were primarily used by organizations to share sites between employees. Viewers would rate pages in a similar fashion to the now popular social bookmarking phenomenon. When interesting websites were hard to find a traffic exchange for an organization new to the web proved an invaluable tool. 

Circa 1994 traffic exchanges moved from corporate intranets to the web. In an effort to build communities the concept of rating pages was replaced with rewarding members for viewing.

It was 1996 before traffic exchanges began to charge for traffic and around this time the concept changed from a tool for locating interesting sites to a commercial one. This change in direction resulted in increased popularity at the expense of the content which is now almost exclusively commerce. 

Traffic Exchange Concept
A traffic exchange website receives website submissions from webmasters that join traffic exchange networks. The person who submitted the website then has to browse other member sites on the exchange program to earn credits, which enable their sites to be viewed by other members through the surf system. This increases the number of visitors to all the sites involved.

Exchanges enforce a certain credit ratio, which illustrates the amount of websites the surfer must view in order to receive one hit through the program for their promoted website. Many sites offer the ability to upgrade one's membership level for a more equal credit ratio.
As the viewers are all website owners or affiliates, it is possible that some might find certain member sites interesting and thus make note of them on their own sites, sending more traffic their way. Most traffic programs also impose a time limit when members are browsing, ranging from 10 seconds to 60 seconds. Some incorporate the use of captcha to ensure user interaction.

Almost all traffic exchange programs are free, although many of them offer special features to paid members and offer credits for purchase. Almost all traffic exchange programs encourage users to build their own referral networks, which in turn increases the referrers' amount of credits.


The traffic generated in a traffic exchange can be leveraged by using a downline builder to assist the user in building a referral network in the many different traffic exchanges.
In practice, traffic exchange programs are generally used by small business owners or marketers who either want free advertising or use the exchange programs for low-budget advertisement campaigns.

Traffic Exchange Uses
Most people use Traffic Exchange programs to increase their site visit rate. Traffic Exchange programs offer both the Auto and Manual Surf options with a timing of 3 to 60 seconds.
An 'autosurf' program requires no human intervention to rotate the sites in the database, and is used primarily to inflate the total number of site hits. This practice is rather controversial as it may skew the results of website popularity. People's main reason behind joining a Traffic Exchange program is to promote products and services to like minded marketers.A factor which may negatively influence the ranking is the Bounce Rate.
If a website or blog has a high bounce rate then it will be considered that people are not interested in the content.[1] The Bounce Rate is calculated by the average rate a visitor stayed on the site. So whereas the Traffic Exchange sites increase the site visit rate, on the other hand they also increase the bounce rate.

The Bamboo Marketer


Science Daily has this to say about bamboo:
Bamboos are a group of woody perennial evergreen plants in the true grass family Poaceae. Some of its members are giants, forming by far the largest members of the grass family. There are 91 genera and about 1,000 species of bamboo. They are found in diverse climates, from cold mountains to hot tropical regions.

In knowing that, we become even more fascinated by the bamboo plant, even as we chose it as our blog background for sometime now, and will probably continue to do so.

Business will test your mettle as a person and as a human being. We can all take a cue from the strong, tall, and yet flexible bamboo plant.

Where others snap with the force of the wind, the bamboo merely sways with it -- so vert Zen; so very Tao.

It just shows brittleness cannot possibly survive.

Of course, we've seen bamboo thrashed by heavy winds and rains, too, but that is the exception.

More often than not, the bamboo survives and persists. It just keeps growing, too.

Its evergreen trunk and leaves provide healing balm to your tired eyes and spirit.

Its body provide you furniture, flooring, shelter, and ornamentation.

Just like the sturdy coconut tree, it seems every part of the bamboo plant can be put to good use, whether outer or inner.

Surely, the panda knows something we don't as it nourishes itself with the leaves and maybe the shoots (and of course, we're guessing with the latter).

How can something so strong be so pliant and resilient?

We surely can learn from the qualities of this plant.

May our businesses and ventures be bamboo-like, strong, and resilient.

May our ventures remember to respect nature and others.

May we all bend and not break.

May we all continue to thrive and survive in the midst of storms and sunshine.

May we stand tall like the bamboo plant and yet provide safety and shelter for others like a bamboo grove where one is inclined to take shelter in -- away from the crowd. Away from the heat, and into its quiet and healing fold, like a mother's arms gently enfolding you.

Nature truly has much to teach us in terms of being kind, warm, giving, loving, generous, and civilized.

As such, our bamboo image will continue to grace our Band of Banners blog.

Love, joy, peace, and prosperity to all!

Marketers Unite Now Online!


We love being part of good causes. 

We love helping other marketers in need, not so much so we can get something back from them, but only because they are that -- in great need.

Sometimes, you just want to do what you can and doing nothing is out of the question.

Because of one lady marketer's appeal for help and because we didn't have the funds to help, we decided to create "Marketers Unite" blog -- an avenue where we can showcase what marketers do for each other.

We were also inspired to create that blog after we saw how many other marketers offered help in each their own way.

Please welcome our latest creation, Marketers Unite. You will find many wonderful and positive stories and anecdotes about owners and admins helping each other -- straight from us!

(Originally published 28 March 2018.)

A Father's Love and a Young Girl's Dream

Creative owner and admin of Opal Solo Ads and many othersites, Randy Brickhouse-Bey, emailed all of us to visit his daughter's TEE site -- something she created to help herself go through college -- a truly commendable move from one so young! Click on this link to view the young lady's cool designs!

Here's but a sample:

Purchase for a cause, for Mr. Brickhouse-Bey's daughter IS the future!

Salesmen, Marketers, and Entrepreneurs are Made of Sturdy Stuff

When you're a salesman, marketer, and entrepreneur, you tend to experiment a lot. You've got to be made of sturdy stuff for there are no assurances that your programs will work, that people will buy, or that you'll make a cent at all. Thus, it takes a lot of courage, compassion, and creativity. Sometimes, we may wonder if we ought to be doing something else instead considering the load of work to do.

Anyway, here are the essentials in order to make it as an entrepreneur:

Courage, because you've got to be brave in facing many unknowns.

Clarity, because you've got to have clear goals.

Compassion, because we're all in this together.

Creativity, because you've got to think up a storm.

Consistency, because you've got to show up at work each day.

Do you have all that in you?

If so, what are you waiting for?

Dive in this plenty-mad marketing pool.

Many of us forgot to bring a life jacket.

We hope you have one stashed somewhere!


Why We Like JV Sites

Click on this link to go to Kenny Lessing's Real Time Mega Traffic site. Mr. Lessing is the main man who develops many cool JV sites.

Back in 17 September 2017, we stumbled upon the JV (Mr. Lessing says it stands for "Join Venture") sites and found them to be great membership sites when you wish to wet your feet in the marketing pool.

It was such a cool and FREE way of marketing our programs as we also learned along the way. Where else can you join membership sites and yet get paid $5 for signing up?

We know four (4) sites that do! Click on this link to know which ones these are.

Every Admin was different, of course, so we sifted through all the sites we came upon and whatever you'd find on this page or on this other blog will surely make you want to join. You get a FREE ad pack of huge credits, banners, and text ads. Plus, you can also earn from promoting these Admin's sites.

This is what affiliate marketing was all about. You join the sites; you promote your programs to the members; you get paid for getting more members into the site. It's really all give and take, which makes sales, marketing, and entrepreneurship fun!

We did write in 25 November 2017 that we like JV sites for the following reasons. JV sites are:

1. FUN to use.
2. EASY to use.
3. GREAT potential for earning and learning.
4. FREE to join! 


Brad Webb Was Right

Brad Webb on top photo, also showing his colleague Paul Coonan, from their State-of-the-Art Mailer web page. 

We were all newbies once -- got burned a LOT of times -- then we came across a very important statement from veteran online marketer, Brad Webb of State-of-the-Art Mailer.

He said something about "building up your traffic resources first".

And that got us thinking.

In the absence of a really GREAT program, we thought we might as well build up the traffic first.

So we got into a LOT of programs like you wouldn't believe.

After which, we got organized and started this blog.

It started growing organically -- one thought led to another.

We did the research; you can now plant and harvest alongside us.

The Real Issue in Marketing


Funny, everyone else said it was "traffic".

To succeed in marketing, they said, you had to have lots of traffic.

In our case, it wasn't so much traffic as WHICH program to promote?

There were many programs but nothing that really grabbed us.

So what did we do after all that research?

We created our own.

Band of Banners was it.
