Product Review: Web Traffic Juggernaut

Web Traffic Juggernaut is a new site that says it guarantees more web visitors and online advertising with very little effort or cost. So I decided to put it to the test...

My first impression was the site looks professional and clean, with an attractive look and feel. It is easy to read and understand. Joining the site was easy and painless--they do offer 2 upgrade options but they are not required to gain the benefits.

The Members Area is very well laid out and intuitive--I could figure out what to do after only a few minutes and was able to get up & running in less than 5 minutes. Inside the site, you create links and ads--the links you simply enter any URL links you use into the generator and it transforms them into "Juggernaut" links. You create ads for anything you want to promote using the Juggernaut Ad Generator, which is very easy to use. You can create as many links and as many ads as you like. And they are organized in a logical way--links are displayed in the order you create them but also your 5 most recent links appear on the main page for quick reference. Also, since the link generator is the tool you'll use most, it is also right at the top of the main page when you login. Very smart!

After you've created at least 1 link and 1 ad you can start to generate traffic. Just use and promote the new Juggernaut link instead of the original source link you had. Every time the Juggernaut link is clicked, the page loads followed by a small ad window in the lower right corner. It displays 3 ads PLUS an image with your affiliate link that goes back to Juggernaut. So if anyone clicks the Juggernaut image they see the site, and if they signup they become your referral. It's a great viral feature because you can build referrals without even trying to just by using the site.

Now every time the ad window displays (your Juggernaut links get clicked) you earn credits that get YOUR ad displayed in the ad windows when other members' links get clicked. So the more clicks, the more times your ads get displayed.

And this works virally--meaning as you make referrals into Juggernaut (either by promoting it or just using it and visitors click the Juggernaut image on the ad window to join) you also earn ad credits on THEIR link clicks. And this works up to 5 levels deep. So you can create a massive amount of free ad views and web traffic by referring others to Juggernaut also.

I didn't get to test the full effect of a big downline yet (I just got the tool) but I can tell you the rest of the site works exactly as stated--my links got clicked, I earned credits, and my ads got displayed. Juggernaut even tracked my results so I know how many clicks and how many ad displays. That was an impressive unadvertised extra feature.

There is one more benefit and feature which might be the best of them all--downline emailing. You can email your downline with offers, promotions, or whatever you like, and here is where Juggernaut really shines. They took time to make the emailing often enough that it's valuable as a user, but no so often that it's a burden to your downline. But the best part about this feature (and actually the credit earning too) is that they use a unique dual-matrix technology that builds your downline in 2 ways. First is the typical way--you refer members, who then refer members, etc. But the 2nd matrix is a "forced matrix" that places all new members in a downline in sequential order. Without getting technical, what it means is that if you join and just stay a member (even if you don't do anything) your downline will grow automatically because new members will fill in your forced matrix. And you earn credits on them too. Now THAT's really great.

Overall I have to say I am impressed with Web Traffic Juggernaut. It is simple yet powerful, and delivers on its promises. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to increase traffic and advertising.

Join online businesses without a credit card

I had a sad little Twitter message today from a student who was interested in my online businesses but thought she couldn't do so because she didn't have a credit card.

Well, thinking about it, this could apply to a lot of students, in the UK and around the world.

The best alternative seems to be the prepaid or stored-value cards. I did a quick Google and this type of card is good to go for online purchases or anywhere you would normally use plastic.

There is plenty of information and advice out there to help you choose a card that works where you are.

In view of the fact that many university students are looking at huge debts before they ever get into the normal paid jobs and professions that they hope their studies will lead to, a way of getting into lucrative online opportunities could be a real help.

In the UK, you can look at these websites for some help and advice. There are more, and outside the UK, you are sure to be able to find something in your location.

Always on the lookout

Today I am celebrating some great blogs and bloggers I have found links to on Twitter.

This isn't because I am too idle to write something myself, but because unless you follow these particular people on Twitter or subscribe to their blogs, you might otherwise miss them and they really are important topics.

The first blog is dedicated to giving its readers good tips about using Twitter to the best effect in their marketing. The blog is edited by Darren Rowse, but includes guest writers. The post that caught my eye is by Crystal N Woods who demonstrates how Twitter helps to identify and reward good bloggers and those who have particular skills in specific areas of internet marketing. See
here. This is the second in a series and you'll find the links to the other one at the end, along with some excellent basic tips for Twitter beginners that you should also read and absorb.

The next blog I want to mention covers an area that I've never got into - video marketing. Most opportunity websites you visit these days has one or more videos, so at some stage I may have to.

This post is a useful and intriguing reference to how to use a bit of psychology to do it and make your production stand out from the crowd. This will make you think a bit - how could you promote your business or product without actually MENTIONING it? Find out
here. Kudos goes to Andy J Hunt - link is to his Twitter page.

The last is a site rather than a blog. Most of us will now be members of a whole variety of social networks - OpenNetworker is a useful way of tying all your networks together and 'cross fertilising' so that your friends discover new networks when you do.

Discounts, coupons and an income

So many things hit my inbox every week, I don't have the time to read most of them, and to be honest I can't recall why the email introducing me to MyWorldPlus made such an impression.

I've flirted with opportunities before that have a powerline and promise you that your upline's recruiting efforts will make money for you, but the results have been disappointing and I've left, having made very little.

Within a few hours of joining MWP absolutely free as a pre-enrollee, a constant stream of notifications arrived that promised me that I had money coming if I would only upgrade. I looked at the payplan and did the maths. It certainly looked like I was on to a winner, so decided to give it a try.

The payplan actually consists of a number of different income streams. Let's say you upgrade (and you must go for Member/Associate or you get no income). Then you don't do anything, just wait for your upline to carry on recruiting people into your line. There is a cut-off every Thursday at midnight Pacific Time. If at that point you HAVE upgraded, you will jump above anyone in your powerline who has not done so. They will carry on getting emails from MWP for everyone who joined the powerline after them who upgrades.

So the persuasion to join is very good, and it isn't just YOUR direct upline whose efforts you benefit from. The 74 people who I am earning on (as I write) who are not my personal enrollees were originally recruited by a whole load of different people. The percentage you get for each of those people every month, depends on your rank, and that depends on how many personal enrollees you have.

Another very attractive income stream is the retail bonus. You get a one off $25 for every person you bring in who pays the first month's $19.95 subscription and the one-off entry fee, so it only takes 3 people to come into your personal line, to be in profit. At that point your rank increases and you get a higher residual every month.

There are other bonuses too, which increase your income monthly and weekly. Retail bonuses are paid down several levels and they get paid weekly which is really good for putting you in profit fast. Other income is paid monthly. All income is paid by check in the US or GlobalXchange outside, and there is a low-cost ATM card so you don't have to worry about bank transfers.

That's the income side, but I didn't even mention the discount card yet. The main product you are paying for is a discount club. Now I have to be brutally honest. Inside the USA, the discounts you can get are wide and varied. In the UK, they are very limited, and if you don't play golf or stay in USA-based hotel chains, there really isn't much for you at the moment which is disappointing. Again, only inside the USA, you can also get money off coupons for the sorts of things families buy every week. Hopefully the range of benefits outside the USA will increase. The card is claimed to be worldwide, so look on the relevant page at what is available where you are.

However, if you look as the discount as a kind of icing on the cake, then any savings you make will be a nice extra, rather than the whole reason for joining. I can see in the USA, you could very easily make $20 worth of savings a week just on the sort of shopping and casual eating out you do now, which would cover your monthly sub more than 4 times.

I'm really impressed with the speed that you can earn money in this opportunity and the fact that you can sign up as a pre-enrollee and upgrade when you know you will be earning, and on that basis I would thoroughly recommend it. - visit my MWP page, sign as a pre-enrollee and take a tour

And if you are looking for leads for your new MWP business, look below at the Orangeleads post - have a great Independence Day weekend!

Time for Twittertime

Apps for Twitter emerge almost daily, but I found one today that really floats my boat.

Twittertime, written by Howard Mark Mandel gives you the possibility to set up any number of tweets to fire off when you want them in the future. So, say you are on holiday and want to keep on tweeting without having to text them in or spend time promoting your business when you want to be relaxing by the pool and sightseeing.

You can set up tweets before you go, no limits about how far in the future! You could be on the 'other side' but if your Twitter account didn't get cancelled, and tweets are scheduled, they'll happen - spooky!

The app is still in beta, and Howard is keen for people to use it and email him about any bugs. The only one I have found so far is that the membership confirmation URL didn't work, but I could schedule tweets anyway.

Thanks Howard, well done.
