Winter Perkins Stop Drop and Thrive splash page

Working from home is good but there can be one potential problem for those of us who do it.

Sitting in front of the computer all day is not exactly healthy if you don’t take a break from time to time and do some exercise.

You could go swimming, walking, visit the gym, play sports or just take a quick break and do some crunches in the privacy of your own home.

Now can you guess which one of the above options comes with XP?

It is the last one actually thanks to Lucky 13 Too leader Winter Perkins who seems to be on a bit of a mission to get everyone fit.

You are not going to get millions of XP for doing this but you will get some. And also Winter has no way of knowing if you really did your exercise so no cheating. Seriously don’t cheat on this one.

Firstly it is not a cool thing to do and secondly just by doing a little bit of regular exercise could have many long term benefits for your health.

So do your crunches, watch Winter’s video to find out how to claim your XP and sign up to her list to find out what other cool things that she has which might also benefit you right now.

It is always rewarding to see people make really good video splash pages.

It is good beca2use it shows that real thought and effort has been placed into helping ensure that the page is best placed to achieve the desired result.

So when I saw a splash page from CTP member Gary Anderson recently, I saw that it looked to be a very good page indeed.

This is a screenshot of the page in question. If you click on it you will be taken to the actual page with the video on it.

Gary Anderson Kore4 splash page

I guess the first thing to keep in mind is that it looks really great and it is obvious what it is promoting…Kore4 in this case.

There is an opt in form to that Gary can build his list and a video, a really well-made autoplay video, so that he can get his message across and, at the same time, give people the chance to get to know him.

All very well and good. Excellent in fact.

Then I am told that this is Gary’s first attempt at such a page.

That makes an already very impressive page all the more impressive. Very well done sir.

 

The clever splash pages just keep on coming and it is good to see so many of the pages from the Sweeva Surf Party shown throughout many of the other leading traffic exchanges too.

Here are a selection of pages which stood out at last week’s Sweeva Surf Party. You will need your speakers working to get the best out of many off the pages highlighted this week.

Ooops!

Ooops splash page by SurfAholics Alpha

What could it all mean? This page sounds as interesting as it looks. If you have not heard it for yourself then click on the page to find out. I can see how this page would go down well with the SurfAholics Alpha team but might give the Ubers somewhat of a sinking feeling in the pit of their stomachs perhaps.

We Love You Too

Loved up Alphas splash page

What is it with the Alphas and their musical pages? Here is another one for all those romantics out there.

Here Comes The Money

here comes the money splash page from CSN

OK this is only a small part of the full splash page which actually took up the whole of my screen – so click on the image to get the full page.

Scott Rohn and CSN are also getting into the musical splash page theme here. This was the most catchy tune of the Sweeva Surf Party, made me smile every time it came up.

Bigger Boat

Biger Boat splash page by Uber Surfers

The Ubers showed that they were more than willing to take on rivals Alphas when it comes to funny splash pages.

This was another huge splash page and only part of it is shown here so if you want to see the Uber’s punchline then you will need to click on the image to see the original page.

Kore4  – TERL

Kore4 TERL splash page

This was actually one of Jon’s favorite pages of the Surf Party and I can totally see why. If this page contained the same information but used different fonts and/or different colors it may not have worked nearly so well.

So many people forget that the overall look of the page is as important (of not more important) as the message being conveyed.

I liked this page a lot too.

Team Bee

Team Bee splash page

I suppose it would not be a Sweeva Surf Party without at least one reference to Unicorns and farting…this time the honors went to the Strays Team Bee.

And finally…

Cook down Kore4 splash page by Norbert Ladner

The Sweeva Surf Party would not be complete without the eye-catching designs of Norbert Ladner from CTP Renegades. This time, with the weather getting warmer, a nice way to cool down was on offer.

Don’t forget there is no Sweeva Surf Party today as Jon is taking a short break in Vegas this week.

The Sweeva Surf Party is almost upon us once again…it happens at 4pm Eastern today in the TELive room.

So this would be a good time to remind you of some of the the most eye-catching pages from last week’s event.

SAA Member Spotlights

SAA Member Spotlight splash page

SurfAholics Alpha did something interesting. Not only did they come joint first in the team event, they also showed a series of splash pages including interesting facts about their members. The page above features Sabrina Traversa but there were many more shown.

We Fart XP

SAA splash page We Fart XP

Ah those Alphas and their fascination with Unicorns and farting. I still haven’t got to the bottom of that one if you excuse the pun.

Meet An Uber Surfer

Meet an Uber Surfer splash page

Not to be outdone Uber Surfers wanted people to get to know their members too. I like these team pages promoting individual members.

SSC Logo

Lucky 13 splash page promoting SSC

A very nice page from Lucky 13 promoting the Sunshine Surf Club. Very visually striking graphics.

Cute Pug

Cute Pug splash page for the Sweeva Surf Party

Boris used this animated pug graphic and an exclusive award of XP for Surf Party viewers to make his offer. Very clever and a great way to use the unique hour of the advertising week on Sweeva.

Blank Page

Blank page splash page

Minimalist stuff here from Aaron Green.

Unicorn Hunting

Uber Surfers Season Three Splash Page

Another Ubers page and another team picking up on the unicorns and farts fixation with some members of CTP Teams.

Sweeva Surf Party

CTP Renegades promotes the Sweeva Surf Party splash page

And finally, this post would not be complete without a page from Norbert Ladner. This is a timely reminded that the Sweeva Surf Party is almost with us again. See you at 4pm Eastern for some more. Be there.

Matt Badura is special guest at the Sweeva Surf Party

Former Alphas leader Matt Badura was a special surprise guest at yesterday’s Sweeva Surf Party.

He braved assorted hounds – of the oven variety and otherwise – to enter the heart of TimTech’s Canadian operation and then had to watch as CSN stopped SurfAholics Alpha from getting their third outright teams splash pages victory in a row. (But more of that later.)

Matt also introduced a new twist to yesterday’s proceedings…he asked viewers to nominate their favorite splash page on Twitter using the hashtag #SweevaSurfParty. Jon and Matt then chose two winners at random and Hunters leader Valentin Mavrodin and WealthBuilders leader Evelyn Kramer both winning CTP teams branded t-shirts.

It was another really intense battle, both for the individual pages and the team pages.

The Alphas started out really strongly and dominated the first 15 minutes but they soon faced a strong challenge from both Renegades and CSN. It was these teams which were to dominate the contest and, as often happens with the Sweeva Surf Party, the team winners were not decided until the very last page.

CSN piled on the pressure to the very end and with just 60 seconds left in the contest the Alphas and CSN were level on points. Both teams needed the next page and it was the Alphas who got it.

Had they gone with a 60 second timer they would have frozen CSN out but they chose 30 seconds leaving their rivals with a chance, which they happily took and this caused both teams to tie for first place.

The teams winners were:

=1. SurfAholics Alpha and CSN

2. Renegades

3. Lucky 13.

The individual contest was equally intense with eight people sharing the winnings as follows:

=1. John Novak, Carl Belcher, Ken Locatelli.

=2. Scott Rohn, Norbert Ladner, Monica Wilson.

=3. David McKay, Terry Allison.

And finally there was even a guest appearance from the Lucky 13 branded mug which Lynn sent Jon to add to his mug collection.

Sadly I was not able to get a screengrab of the mug from the Surf Party but here it is after it arrived at Jon’s house.

I don’t know what it was with last week’s Sweeva Surf Party but it seemed that most people’s thoughts had turned to animals…both real and imagined.

There was also some gentle digs between the Ubers and Alphas and a lot of very eye-catching, well-designed pages on show once again.

So let’s unleash some of the animals…

Thank You

Thank you splash page from SAAs

For some reason the Alphas wanted to thank this white unicorn…nothing wrong with that at all. Unicorns like to be thanked just like the rest of us I guess.

Road Trip

Road trip splash page by CTP Renegades

This page just rocks. Just look at the branding going on here…Kore4, CTP Renegades logo, the team splash page and none of it looks out of place. The Kore4 logo is particularly striking indeed.

Looks like the mouse had a lucky escape too by the looks of things.

Bigger Boat

Bigger Boat splash page by SAAs

Rivalry between teams is good, especially when it is done in good humor like the page above. Keep it up teams.

A Hamster Dies

A Hamster Dies splash page by SAAs

It seems that the Alphas don’t just have it in for the Ubers…they don’t much care for hamsters either. A good page again although I don’t really know what it all means.

To Sea

To Sea splash page

Funny. Slightly odd. And featuring more animals, some of which are wearing nerd glasses.

Team Stray Bee

Team Stray Bee splash page

An Easter Splash page would not be the same without a collection of animals so this did not disappoint. Good showing from the Strays Team Bee in both of the Sweeva Surf Parties this season by the way. Keep it up.

Penguins

Penguins splash page by Boris

In keeping with the week’s unofficial animals theme, Boris used a short video of penguins to promote his CTP XP Mania promotion. Go penguins.

And finally…

Well it seems that I wasn’t the only one not the memo about the animals theme so I will leave you with this non-animal splash page from Norbert Ladner.

New Season

New Season splash page by Norbert Ladner

So don’t forget the next Sweeva Surf Party takes place tomorrow (thursday) at 4pm Eastern in the TELive room…don’t miss it and be sure to get your bids in so that your pages are seen.

It is that time once again…time to look at some of the splash pages which caught my eye on the last Sweeva Surf Party.

The surf party is a real opportunity for people to show off their creative side and week after week we see some really awesome pages.

So this is what stood out this time round…

The Surfers Prayer

First a quick prayer…a surfer’s prayer no less, courtesy of the SurfAholics Alpha

surfers prayer from SAAs

Mighty, Mighty Ubers.

OK, so I am not entirely sure what is going on here. I think it is firmly in the category of smack talk or team banter – depending on what side of the Atlantic you are on.

Funny though. It made me laugh.

Mighty Mighty Ubers Splash Page

DeChuck’s CTP XP Mania

This is probably about as far from a standard affiliate page as it is possible to get. Excellent page indeed.

DeChuck's CTP XP Mania splash page

And now for a musical interlude…

Scott is well known for his creative, and humorous, splash pages and this one is particularly good.

Sweeva Las Vegas splash page

How Fast Was That? Award

Near the end of the Sweeva Surf Party, Jon announced that he was hoping for a 60 second timer to come up because he was in need of a bathroom break.

Within just a few minutes, Eric Goettman had come up with “Where Did Jon Go?” and got his bid accepted. I think this must be the fastest-ever turnaround in the history of the Sweeva Surf Party.

Where Did Jon Go? Splash Page

Training Hard For Season Three

In Season Two, Renegades member Norbert Ladner came up with some really iconic and eye-catching splash pages for his team…and it looks like he is doing exactly the same for Season Three.

Training Hard for Season Three splash page by norbert ladner

Great job everybody and we will do it all over again this Thursday at 4pm Eastern in the TELive room…see you there.

Randy Sult Free Agent Splash page

We have always said that when it comes to your promotional efforts online that you should promote yourself first.

I don’t think it is possible to find a more literal interpretation of that than this page that Randy Sult is currently promoting.

Randy wants us all to know that as far as CTP Teams is concerned that he is a ‘free agent’ and open to offers from interested team leaders.

He sounds like a good team member to have on board too with his premier league experience, impressive activity-based sKore of 53, and his 500% loyalty bonus that he would instantly bring to any CTP team that he joins.

As we prepare for Season Three I would expect to see a few more players in CTP games also advertising themselves in this manner.

Nice page Randy. Here’s hoping that you find a team in which you will feel at home for Season Three.

On Friday Jon decided to being the Sweeva Surf Party back and it was a huge success.

Sadly I missed it as I had to leave my computer to fend for itself in a dark and unheated room while I went and interacted with people offline.

Now I must be old fashioned, perhaps horribly old-fashioned but on those rare occasions when I socialize with others then I actually talk to them.

However it is really fascinating, at least to me, to observe those who have grown up with hand-held digital communication as the norm.

Many of this generation seem less comfortable interacting with those around them but will spend all their time interacting with their friends online via various social apps on their smartphones.

Anyway what has that got to do with the Sweeva Surf Party? Well absolutely nothing at all as it happens. But if you have been paying attention you will recall that I said I missed the Surf Party so I have to talk about something on this post!

Sweeva Surf Party news is that it looks like this will be a monthly event, on Thursdays rather than Fridays, with the next one taking place on Thursday March 12 at 4pm Eastern.

So hopefully that sounds like a good plan for everybody and I will do my best to turn up for the next one.

But before I go there is only time to honor the stand-out page of Friday’s Surf Party…step forward Norbert Ladner from Renegades with this awesome contribution:

Norbert Ladner Renegades Vitamines splash page for SSP

Well done sir.

Sometimes in life the answer to a slightly confusing splash page can be found…in another splash page.

Actually it is a very good marketing trick that has been tried and tested and works very well.

1. Say something to capture people’s attention.

2. Ensure that the ‘something’ you say really does capture attention and leaves your audience a little confused.

3. After a suitable time (and maybe after more than one teaser page) reveal what was going on and what you would like people to do.

Also remember that we are not necessarily talking about Mensa-level puzzles here (although I can see that working if done right).

This was Tom’s original page:

Tom Wacker Getting Bombed video splash page

It would not take a huge amount of brain power to work out that he was promoting the CTP Sub Game for this coming Friday.

But here’s the thing. Saying “I’m getting bombed on Friday the 13th!” and including a video almost compels you to want to find our more.

It also means that you will subconsciously connect that date with the thought that “Tom is doing something on this date.”

So what is going on.

Well it turns out that is more than just Tom…it is a Lucky 13 thing.

It would appear that four of the traffic exchanges associated with the Lucky 13 team have all got together to host the Sub Game this coming Friday.

This strikes me as a very good idea indeed. Creative, original and fun. I like it.

P.S. Right at the start of this blog post I said that sometimes the answer to a slightly confusing splash page can be found in another splash page…well the ‘reveal’ to Tom’s original page is shown below.
