Plus 1 Badge Hunt has this update and one more and then it is done!  It’s almost the end and still there is a certain frenzy at the badges.  I really think there is some serious badge collection to be done.  Why?

Because CTP teams season 3 ended at midnight.  The playoffs for season 3 begin at midnight tonight (Monday).  How many savvy teams have qualified for badges and not collected them?  I’ll bet there are way more than a few in this category and that we will see a big uptick in badges awarded on the first day of the playoffs.

Which isn’t to say that the Plus 1 Badge Hunt hasn’t been a roaring success so far.  It has seen very near 14,000 badges awarded already, and more than 36 hours to go.

Remember that there are 75 people that are jockeying for position and the possibility for a prize.  I expect that list to change significantly before the end.

I always like to see what successful people do, and to pattern my business after them.  One of the very successful people in our sphere is Eric Goettman.  His 5 badges have two that are ‘sign up’ badges for business’ that Eric owns.  The other 3 are simple ‘buy anything from XXX site’ badges.

It just doesn’t hurt to ask people for a sale.  Eric has good TEs and with the 3 sale badges he gives you and I an incentive to purchase credits at his sites.  The nugget?  Don’t be afraid to ask your customers to buy.

I sweet guarantee that you will make way more money if you actually ask people to buy.

I’m just sayin’

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.

CTP XP hunt winners drawn live at TELive

Jon Olson announced the winners of last week’s big XP badge hunt during yesterday’s TELive.

There were ten prizes of $20 awarded after 106 people qualified for the prize draw by hunting down more than 400 million XP during last week’s teams contest.

The winners were drawn live using random.org to ensure that those chosen were really picked at random.

Congratulations to all the winners – your prizes have already been added to your CTP commissions to be paid out on Friday.

The full list of winners are:

  • Patricia Hedge – SurfAholics Alpha
  • John Novak – CSN
  • Viktoria Cetin – SurfAholics Alpha
  • Mary Goble Thomas – Dream Team
  • David McKay – Renegades
  • Sig Skeie – Uber Surfers
  • Valentin Mavrodin – Hunters
  • Rosita Maasch – Lucky 13
  • Eric Burgoyne – CSN
  • Ken Wolff – Wealthbuilders

Well done to everyone who took part and helped made this such an awesome contest and congratulations once again to all the winners.

…you have to add another 20 names to the Top 100 leaderboard.

Jon’s latest weekly promotion has really caught the imagination of CTP Teams players.

The idea was that there would be random $20 prizes up for grabs this week and that all players who reached the 400 million points threshold by midnight Eastern tonight (Sunday) would be entered into the prize draw tomorrow.

In an extra twist Jon decided to add extra prizes based on the number of people who qualified for the draw.

The result was that all 100 people on the Top 100 leaderboard qualified for the draw so we had to extend the board to show 20 more names in case more people also qualified.

Right now at 10.30pm Eastern 103 people have earned more than 400 million individual points this week which is an absolutely amazing achievement.

The next ten names on the list all have more than 300 million points and the remainder all have more than 250 million points which shows how strong CTP Teams is right now.

Don’t forget to come along to TELive at 4pm Eastern tomorrow (Mon) for more news about the winners.

CTP XP Megasurf explosion

Thomas Sheets from Renegades has come up with a rather interesting promotion.

It is called the CTP XP Mega XPlosion where 5,000,000 XP Up For Grabs plus one million XP as a grand prize.

There are ten traffic exchanges taking part in the contest which will reward today’s top surfers.

The Object: Win All The XP You Can!
The Rules: Surf All The 10 TE’s(min 100 pgs ea.) to qualify for the Top 10
To Qualify for the Grand Prize You Must be in the Top 10 at All Exchanges!

This sounds really fun. If you are not taking part in this already then there is still time…so get clicking.

For the next two weeks in CTP Teams the race is on for every member of every team to earn as much XP as they can for their teams.

When that XP is combined with the team bonuses then it translates into team points…and it is those points which will determine which division your team is locked into once Season Three starts in earnest in two weeks time.

So until then it is time to rack up that XP to get your team where it wants to be.

Here are some pointers on some of the ways you can earn XP…but it is not an exhaustive list…there are other ways too. In fact feel free to leave a comment on your favorite ways of earning XP.

Completing TimTech Promos such as the Daily Challenge are a great way of earning XP.

BracketSurfing at ILH will give the winner a 1,000 XP boost.

– You can earn XP by simply reading RocketResponder emails…Here is how it works.

– You can also earn XP outside of TimTech because lots of awesome members of the wider traffic exchange and online community will award XP for completing tasks on their sites. These are just some of the people offering XP that I highlighted back in September.

The Golden Egg of XP is, naturally, a great way to gain XP. It changes home every hour but by checking your CTP dashboard page will always let you know where it can be found at any given time.

Golden Egg of XP Badge introduced today aug 13 2014

Reading emails from ListNerds will allow you to build up XP really quickly – here is how. In fact you can gain up to 1,000 XP per email (before bonuses) this way. If you combine this with an XP Battery available from your CTP Goodies store then you can boost this by another 100%. This is how the XP Battery works.

Nerd Surfing will boost your XP and claiming badges while you surf will boost it even more.

– Become the ThumbMaster at ThumbVu and get rewarded with XP for the entire time you remain ThumbMaster.

The Bonus Play Game on the CTP Prize Wheel is a rich source of XP.

– Open either of the silver of gold vaults while surfing and you can find up to 25,000 XP inside. Not bad at all. Again check out your CTP home page to find out where the vaults are located on any given day and give your XP total a huge daily boost.

– Top Tip: Promo Bonus. Your entire team will get a bonus each time a member completes a sub game or opens either the gold or silver vaults. Find out how the Promo Bonus works.

– Surfer Loyalty Awards. If you surf our sites a lot then you will get rewarded with our most awesome XP badges yet.

Do you have a favorite way of earning XP which is not listed here? If so feel free to share in the comments section below.

P.S. There is one other really easy method of gaining some quick, easy XP which I have saved until last…you can gain XP for commenting on this blog!

As we get started with the pre-season for Season Three of CTP Teams, now would be a good time to help new members catch up on what some of the older hands already know.

To the end, we have trawled through all of the posts on this blog and pulled together some of the ones that people might like to read up on.

For each topic there will be a brief description of the subject covered and a link to the original post. So let’s go…

  • Sweeva is a good place to advertise and has proved very popular with CTP Teams – especially for teams competing for XP during the Sweeva Surf Party. Here is how to get your pages shown on Sweeva. How to make a bid on Sweeva.
  • Introducing the CTP Marketplace where you can trade CTP goodies with other members.
  • Who the sponsors are for Season Three of CTP Teams and what division they sponsor.
  • Information about forming or joining a CTP Team, key dates for Season Three and other cool facts you will want to know.
  • Social media…CTP Teams is on Twitter and Facebook.
  • Everything you could ever possibly want to know about TimTech promos…who they are aimed at and how you could benefit.

The next post will explain some of the many varied ways that you can earn XP with CTP Teams and, as ever, Jon will be happy to explain anything more you need to know on TELive every Monday to Thursday at 4pm Eastern.

Sometimes the time is right to do things really big…and this is just one of those times.

Recently we have rewarded our awesome customers for being so awesome so now it is about time we rewarded the awesomeness of our super surfers too.

Each of the TimTech traffic exchanges are unique in their own ways and I am sure everyone has their particular favorite or favorites.

While they are unique they all have many things in common…and today they have one more thing in common that you won’t find anywhere else in the traffic exchange community.

In fact you could search all over the known TE universe and never find the super new, totally awesome sauce, exclusive to TimTech…new Loyalty Reward Badges.

These badges are to reward you our loyal members who surf day in and day out and are the backbone of our community. They come with mega amounts of XP and we can’t wait for you to find them…as many already have.

They are so special that they even come with their own cool splash page…

New TImTech CTP XP Loyalty Badges for TimTech TEs

So there are now 100,000 XP badges at ILoveHits, ThumbVu and StartXchange and our biggest ever XP badge at Sweeva…500,000XP. Yes half a million XP for just one badge.

If you want to get them then you will have to surf more than 1,000 pages in order to do so…that way we reward the people surf the most…and because it will take longer to get through that many pages at Sweeva, that is why the XP is so high there. We wanted to really reward that level of commitment.

Exactly how many pages after 1,000 to find the badges will vary…but they are there and they are being claimed already.

Happy hunting and thank you for being such awesome surfers.

P.S. Special credit to Ole Rasmussen from SurfAholics Alpha who sparked this change. Ole was chatting to Jon and the discussion centered around how we could make the surfing experience better for our most loyal traffic exchange users.

As a result we now have new Loyalty Reward Badges. Thank you Ole.




I have just looked down the list of all 64 teams and do you have any idea how many are currently in the same position as they ended last week?

The answer is…seven. With three weeks to go in season two there is a huge amount of activity right across the two divisions and that is exactly how we wanted it to be.

It also looks like Uber Surfers didn’t take too kindly to Lucky 13 claiming top spot last week and I wouldn’t be surprised if they have vowed to do all in their power to try to ensure it does not happen two weeks in a row.

I have no insider information for this conclusion but looking at the points gap between the two teams I suspect I may be right.

Uber Surfers lead CTP Teams S2 W8 D2

Yesterday Tom Wacker predicted that SurfAholics Alpha would make a move to claim this week…that very well may be true but with Ubers coming out of the gate at a fast and furious pace it will not be easy.

We spoke about CTP Teams quite a lot in TELive yesterday, it is amazing how this competition has grown and become so vibrant in just a few short months.

We also spoke about Kore4 – the ultimate TimTech upgrade and Janelle then surprised everyone by deciding to offer 2 million XP for anyone who decided to join Kore4.

I thought it was a great offer, but not everyone was at TELive yesterday and not everyone follows Janelle on twitter, although they really should.

So I thought I would use the power of the CTP Teams blog to make it even better.

I want as many people as possible to see how a Kore4 upgrade could make a difference that the offer will be extended until midnight Eastern on Friday.

Why do I want to do this? Well I think now would be a good time to prepare for CTP Teams Season Three…and getting that Kore4 upgrade sorted out right now while you plan your team strategy may just give your team the advantage to make a real impact next season.

So if you want all the amazing benefits of Kore4 and 2 million XP as a nice extra bonus then now is the time to act. Get in touch with Janelle (or send a support ticket) when you upgrade and she will sort out the bonus XP for you.

XP Bonus to celebrate CTP becoming four

Happy Birthday CTP. This week Click Track Profit – the online training program which helped revolutionise the TE industry – is four years old.

And what an amazing four years we have seen…the rise of social interactions, badges driving activity, diverse bite-size training, a raft of new games which have spread througout the industry, CTP Teams, the coming together of a vibrant online community and so much more.

It is amazing that we have managed to fit so much in to these four short years and we are already planning some of the awesome sauce goodies that will be part of the next four years.

But for now it is time to celebrate and we have thrown a party right across the whole of TimTech land.

So from now and right through until February 9 we would like to give you 10,000 CTP XP for every single dollar that you spend with TimTech.

It is as simple as that and there are absolutely no catches at all: $1 = 10,000 XP, unless, of course, you happen to be Kore4 and then we ramp things up by 400% – now every dollar is worth 40,000 XP for our Kore4 members.

So whether you need credits or tokens, a promo or an upgrade, then come celebrate with us and mark CTP’s fourth birthday.

Finally, we could never have done any of this without you, the loyal members who have helped put CTP where it is today.

Whether you have been with us from day one, or whether today is your day one at CTP, then many thanks to each and every one of you.

But where exactly is CTP at today? Well here are some numbers:

– $146,309 has been paid out in commissions

– we have just welcomed our 119,036th member to the CTP community

– 80 members have joined so far this morning (it is only 7am Eastern as I write this post)

– 476 members are online right now

– 958 members have logged in so far today alone

and one more thing…

You know those badges, the ones people said would never last and made us the laughing stock of the industry…

– 22,774,453 badges have been claimed. (I think CTP badge fans have had the last laugh after all.)

By the way, as the previous blog post has shown, now could not be a more opportune time to get a much-needed CTP XP boost.

Right throughout CTP Teams – from the top of the Premier League to the bottom of the Competitive League – teams could dramatically affect their rankings with very little effort indeed. See the screengrab below so see how close many of the teams are.

CTP has truly shaken up this industry and now you can let its fourth birthday celebrations shake up the rankings at CTP Teams.
