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 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.

I have to admit that the Sweeva Surf Party is one of my favorite events of the week and writing this post is one of the others.

Yet again it is time for me to have a look at those pages which really caught my eye…

Cash Surfing Network Team Splash

CSN Team Page for SSP

This page caught my eye because…well it caught everyone’s eye. The only way you didn’t see this page 47 or so times is if you were not at the party. I particularly loved the warning at the bottom of the page.

One thing this brought home to me was the old argument about needing unique views because everything else is wasted advertising. What nonsense that is. There are some pretty clever advertisers on CSN and they have absolutely no problem at all with the same group of people seeing the same page multiple times in an hour.

Full With Benefits and K4 For Norbert

Bag Full of Benefits Splash page


If the CSN page of the week is getting to be something of a standard feature of the Sweeva Surf Party, or the Twitter Surf Party as I mistakenly called it on TELive the other day, then so are these pages from Norbert Ladner.

Quite simply I look forward to them every week. Slick and creative. Winners every time for me. If I recall correctly then I think Jon is a fan of these pages too.

SAA Sponsored Badge

SAA Sponsored Badge splash page

A funny page here where the humor won’t be lost on any regular surfer. Given that the SurfAholics Alpha are only the second team to break the weekly one billion team points barrier I am sure the message in this page is true. A also like the fact that they have embedded a badge on the page for people to collect. I’ve got mine…again. Thanks guys.

List Nerds

ListNerds splash page by April M Hunt

Anyone who has been getting XP from ListNerds will be familiar with the above page. Very creative to take something which most others may have just dismissed or found annoying and turn it into a splash page. I had to drop the size down a bit so I could fit it all on my screen so click on the image if you want to see it as it really looks.

Ok that’s it for now but I think there may be a second page of pictures before this day is out…

This was another great week for unique splash pages shown during the Sweeva Surf Party – I have already highlighted some in the last post I wrote but here are some more that I really enjoyed.

I Joined KORE4 – You too?

I Joined Kore4 splash page

Jon Olson keeps mentioning how creative his team CTP Renegades is and regularly asks me to write abo0ut the team on this blog.

Renegades are currently ninth over all within CTP Teams and seventh place in the Premier League

As long as team member Norbert Ladner produces splash pages like the one above then Jon has no worries about the Renegades getting mentioned on this blog.

This is another knock out page and is my favorite splash page of the week by a mile.

Marketing With Jeremiah

Marketing with Jerimiah squeeze page

This page works because it breaks all the rules of traffic exchange advertising.

Well not all the rules but it breaks the rule that the message should be instantly clear and that there should not be too much information to take in and not lots of text to confuse viewers.

When we have a couple of seconds (admittedly longer on Sweeva) to view a page then filling that page with text is normally a really bad idea.

I say normally because this method actually works in this case. The layout, design, color combination and font used all combine to want me to take the time to find out what this all about.

This clearly is a page which is the exception to the general rule. It shouldn’t work but it does and it works very well indeed.

CTP Massters with April

CTP Masters With April splash page

This page is very interesting because it gives some insights into the way CTP Masters is structured as well as being visually appealing.

There are roles within the team such as chief statistical officer, special projects officer, event co-ordinator and interestingly Sweeva Surf Party director. This is a team where everyone is pulling together and each member has an important role to play…I like this a lot.

Nerdbird Costume Video

Giant Nerdbird Barb splash page

This one just got squeezed in right at the end of the SSP. Look at this and you just can’t help smiling so it is little wonder that Barb is constantly regarded as one of the most likeable and trustworthy people in the industry.

This is a very funny video indeed and very creative. Already there is a follow up video to this one but I think I will leave that for another post.
