Category: General Talk

Was going to make this post about finally coming back after having to deal with offline issues. And most certainly very happy to be back. While I’m working on many things. The main one worth mentioning is I’m getting back to blogging on a pretty regular basis. The majority if not all will be done here at ctpteams. It’s a great community with wonderful people. So I think it’s best to start where there is already engagement.

Additionally will be using this in various exchanges as I rework my brand a bit. Engagement being at it’s core. Ask me something, and I will respond. Or just say hi ๐Ÿ™‚

 

To stay in line with this I’m making my first post in a long while about shining some light on a certain mystery!! I have followers but for some reason no one is clicking, seeing, and most importantly buying.

it could be a few key things. But today I would like to talk about engagement and responsiveness. In most cases I bet your Social Media habits resemble something like this video illustration of ineffectiveness.

 

 

NOW ON WITH THE SHOW!!

 

Now I know it’s not rocket science guys. But like many things throughout the industry, people say they will or do, but just flat don’t do it. It’s like a email campaign where you don’t give a url or some contact info. Or a brick and mortar where someone is standing at your counter and your employees are too busy responding and interacting with their followers. Or making calls to people and asking have I reached you at a good time, and after they say yes your like well that’s good but I have nothing else to say and I’ll be calling someone else.

It’s not that you don’t have “potential” customers in reach or even reviewing something you do. But if you don’t engage and respond to them they will quickly lose interest and move on to someone offering the same thing, but that does value their time and interest.

I challenge you to most certainly reach out to those that have you, and than randomly find some people that follow you and than just say hi and that you appreciate them. You will be wowed by how doingย  this will lead to some great people and opps.

And remember to always #GetYourSocialOn

 

What a fantastic season it’s been…Did you know, in the 10 seasons of doing CTP Teams, this is the first time we’ve seen real competition between more than 2-3 top tiered teams.

We are seeing tight races, intense match ups and more even play across the board than ever before…

And it’s about to get crazy!

The Playoffs begin on October 5th!

Same format as previous seasons but with more intense competition because again….We’ve found a great formula that works for you, the player ๐Ÿ™‚

Good luck to all teams and we’ll see you in the playoffs!

We’ve seen a lot of program owners come and go over the years here at ClickTrackProfit. Some newer owners come in guns blazing, and swear they will be here for the long haul, only to disappear in a few months.

Others seem to support CTP Teams and it’s players for a month or two and then try their hands in some other promos only to come back to old faithful ๐Ÿ™‚

However there are a few owners that have been here since literally…Day one. And one of those owners is Ben Frazier and his traffic exchange Advertising Maximizer.

Ben has been a huge supporter of everything CTP related for years.

He’s one of those owners who might fly under the radar because he does things the right way, the long tail way and the smart way.

Advertising Maximizer embodies the kind of owner Ben is. Steady and reliable!

Script – LFMTE
Membership Levels – Free, Advertiser & Maximizer
Downline Builder – Included In Membership With Tons of Extras

It’s a solid program with fantastic traffic delivery and has been a mainstay in the season play here at CTP Teams.

(AKA, this is a program all CTP players should be supporting and surfing daily.)

He supports the players and has never demanded glory, attention or extra special service…He just shows up, every day and let’s his traffic exchange do the talking.

I really respect that in a program and it’s owner. Especially in the day and age of programs disappearing left, right and center…Ben and Advertising Maximizer are built on solid foundations of hard work, patience and results.

Advertising Maximizer is your Daily Challenge traffic exchange each and every Wednesday along with hosting various other promos throughout the week.

This is a must upgrade program and one of the pillars of the CTP Teams competition experience.

Can you believe it?

It’s almost here, the 10th season of CTP teams.

It’s had highs and lows throughout the past 9 seasons of the competition but each and every time we do a season we see great things happen between team mates.

We see partnerships develop. Relationships built. Businesses form. And friendships that can last a lifetime. This is why we play! This is why we love CTP Teams.

We’ll be getting started July 6th for our 10th season. And will have detailed stats about the entire competition very soon…

The plan is to follow last seasons format because in the 9 seasons of doing one, it was the first time we didn’t have any huge complaints or issues with the layout for scoring and the format for competing.

Of course, all input and considerations will always be heard and taken in. So if you have any ideas on how to make this even more fun for future seasons, please let us know.

Huge congrats once again to all the awesome participants of the Hurricane Season and our winners, Phoenix and Cruisin’ Along!

Will they repeat or will we crown a new champion?

It all gets started on July 6th….

Wow, what a great season we’ve had at CTP Teams! Even with our major mess up mid way thorough thanks to an horribly planned server move, teams still competed day in and day out.

The entire point of CTP Teams when it was formed a few years ago, was to get like minded people working together for a common goal!

We believe in teams! The people you meet today could be your potential business partners and customers for years to come but it starts with the relationships.

Still the Negative Nancies seem to pop up from time to time while saying things like this…. “I’ve got better things to do than waste my time here!”

These people miss the big picture completely. And that’s our fault for not highlighting the real positive aspects of this competition…The people!

Let’s check out some of the awesome things that teams have done throughout the history of CTP Teams;

Surf A Holics Alpha, the first team that became a powerhouse in this competition. It gone through battle after battle since Season 1 and has ALWAYS competed. On top of that, they have even began their own program and are now in business under the SurfAholics brand name. That’s the power of the people!

The Cavalry, a team that didn’t exist this time last year but has went on to (at the time of this writing) have the best regular season record in the Hurricane Season. All because of awesome leadership from Phil Lenz and his team of dedicated surfers. This is the power of ONE common goal!

We Are Family – I mean, does it get any better than that? This team embodies EVERYTHING we envisioned for CTP Teams. Amazing leadership and team mates that think of themselves as FAMILY, not just team mates. How much value do you think each of them will gain from the relationships they have built?

I mean, I can go on and on…The PURPOSE of CTP Teams was putting people together! And I think we have done that because the RIGHT PEOPLE found CTP! You deserve all the high fives you can get because of YOU and your dedication to each other, you have made CTP Team the longest running and premier surf competition in the industry!

So as the Hurricane Season comes to a close and we gear up for the playoffs, remember…YOU are the reason this works! You are building relationships and networks that will last a life time, and that truly is the reason why you surf! The welath is found in the journey, it truly is!

Arguably one of the most unique and fun loving members of Click Track Profit, Charles Smith has been a mainstay since day one. The popular owner of Top Flight Traffic and Advanced Safelist has been around the industry for quite sometime, so we thought it would be a great time to finally ask….How does one become as awesome as Charles Smith?


1. How did I stumble upon Click Track Profit? But the real question I wanna know is…What made you order that jerk chicken for me all those years ago….We need to know the story!

Charles: I was with Click Track Profit from the beginning. I remember back in the old days when we used to hang out at TElive on a daily basis. I became attached to what I viewed a as a community of like minded individuals. My belief is sharing a meal is sharing friendship. I was in the room one day when Jon mentioned he didn’t know what he was gonna choose for dinner. So I sprang into action and remembered Jon liked Jamaican food and I remembered the place he ordered from on a regular basis. So I looked up the number and called and asked what was Jon’s favorite dish. I believe it was rice and peas and jerk chicken.

(Side note from Jon: It was arguably one of the biggest surprises of my life and I was so grateful that Charles did this. It was different. It was unique and I’ll remember him for my entire life because of that one act of kindness…)

2. You took your time, but are now a traffic exchange owner. What made you decide to make the jump into ownership?

First off I was very sad to hear that Randy Ritter had lost his battle with cancer. He was one of a few people that I could really talk to about the industry. I was surfing Legacy Hits and I noticed that Topflighttraffic.com was in rotation and it showed as an expired domain. Knowing that Randy Ritter had passed I just figured it would be renewed by whomever held the site. That put me into detective mode.

I spoke with a few folks in the community and heard through the grapevine that TopFlightTraffic was for sale so I pursued the leads and became the 2nd owner. I felt compelled to continue Randy’s passion. There was a glitch a cyber squatter took the topflighttraffic.com name and was holding it for a price that was insane. I was compelled to continue on in my endeavor and used TopFlightTraffic.net instead. I then gave the site a facelift and the rest as they say is history.

3. You’ve been not only active in the teams, but also in this community for so many years. How important is it for new members to stay the course and roll up their sleeves to get to know other members?

It is crazy to see the amount of people that come and go. I feel it is important especially for the new folks to dig in and be consistent with whatever they choose to do. It is important to become known and trusted by people in your niche.

4. What’s the best and worst experience you have had in CTP?

The best experience I have had in CTP is meeting new people and seeing them stay with it. The worst experience I have had are with the pitch meisters that come out of the woodwork and disrupt the community.

5. The number one piece of advice from Charles, to any new member would be…….

Take a deep breathe, If it sounds too good to be true… Meet folks, you cannot succeed on your own and lastly have fun.

It’s time once again….

As we get ready for a new exciting season of CTP Teams, we are looking to make Season 9 the best ever.

Lots of changes were made last season and while there was some concern on how it all played out, we saw some great changes from your input and feedback.

Let’s get the big one of out the bag…We heard you loud and clear, so Season 9 WILL include days off. Teams won’t be competing each and every day.

Now as for keeping it competitive for everyone, this truly is the challenge.

A few things to note:

– There are some big new changes coming for Promo Partners who host their promos with us for Season 9. We are introducing ‘Chests’ later this week and people will start to see what all that means soon. So keep in mind, ‘Chests’ will play a big part in your experience for this upcoming season. Not so much in scoring, but…You’ll see ๐Ÿ˜‰

– There seems to be a few teams that compete each and every season and then a big bulk that don’t…We would love to hear YOUR feedback and constructive input on how we can make it to that again, all teams feel like they can compete.

– Please remember, to be a team leader YOU MUST have an active Kore4 subscription. If your team does not have a Kore4 leader, the team may be disbanded before the start of Season 9.

– The big thing to keep in mind for everyone reading this, we want this to be an enjoyable experience and rewarding one as well. The relationships you build with your fellow team members truly is the gold in these competitions. With that in mind, we are looking for idea that are a benefit to both…Promo partner and Competitor. We’d love to hear your ideas on how to make this a win-win for both parties!

This is a never ending challenge for us, which we embrace and accept. Finding the perfect formula for the CTP Teams competition is an on-going process. But with your awesome input and ideas, we know we can make this next season the best one yet!

As we are nearing the end of Season 8 it’s come to our attention that a number of team leaders are no longer Kore4.

As part of the rules when we started the team based play it was required that all teams be managed and lead by an active Kore4 member.

So we will be going through the teams in the next few days and making sure all team leaders are active with their Kore4 membership.

A few notes;

– We will be disbanding teams without an active Kore4 leader. It’s not fair to the active teams with their Kore4 leaders in play.

– You will have plenty of opportunity going forward to upgrade your account if you are a team leader and looking to remain so.

– And we’ve got a really sweet deal to bring you back on board….We will be giving you a $50 credit at Doctor Traffic when you re-subscribe or for any new player to secure a Kore4 membership.

All you need to do is send Jon a note via email (jon at timtech.us) and let him know you re-subscribed. After that, he will send you an exclusive link to get your $50 free credit.

Pretty sweet huh?

Disclaimer!!

This is not a political post. Just wanted to motivate you all to utilize the full power and potential of your social networks. Afterall if it played a pivotal role in getting Mr. Trump the most powerful position in the world, surely it can help you build your business!!

โ€œSOCIAL MEDIA HAS MORE POWER THAN THE MONEY THEY SPENT.โ€

 

Wow and Wow!!

What an amazing couple weeks it has been here in the United States. No matter what your political affiliation, or your personal philosophy you have to give your hat off to Mr, Trump and his team in one critical area, social media. I can’t think of any better example than his recent utilization of Twitter to get his message out and to motivate like no one has before.

I’ve been a proponent of using social media for your business. It’s a wonderful way to reach out to new people. And the more you learn, the more you realize how powerful of a tool this can be. As you connect and interact with other users, the more you stick out. And if you do so in a responsive, professional, and friendly manner more people will connect with you. If you continue to do this you will brand yourself light, and see some real results. Now depending on your goals, this could be increased sales, networking connections, etc. Now considering all this why aren’t more people doing this, do people need more examples?? Well if Mr. Trumps recent success doesn’t convince and motivate them, what will?

I would highly recommend that you update all your social networks. Start interacting with your current connections, build a larger base, and add some content that attracts users.

Best of luck in emulating Mr. Trump!!

Hey guys. Please watch the video for a welcome and a new addition I’ll be doing to the blog.

 

That being said, I notice a wonderful thing today here at ctp and the teams. I realized beyond family and friends, the people I speak most with are my team members here, at various te’s, and in general the ctp community alltogether.

I mean you have the obvious communication such as strategy and razzing the other teams. But beyond this as the seasons have gone by you have made some great freinds I bet, maybe a few enemies as well, lol. Seriously though let’s take a moment and look back. We have seen team work that rivals some professional sports. Teams coming together and forming there own partnerships and joint ventures, with everything in between.

Of course we all talk business. But from politics to well maybe not religion, we spend a good deal of our time with our team members. So next time your putting “value” on lists, don’t forget your team members. They should and probably are some of your most valuable resources. And we all know how I value out of the norm lists.

So go hug a teammate today!!
