If you're into Internet marketing and are quite active in traffic exchanges, esp. TimTech sites like ILoveHits and StartXchange, then you'd definitely know Brenda Broyles. I attended an Affiliate Funnel webinar for the first time earlier today. The main reason is that Brenda is the featured speaker. She's now officially known as "the Queen of Social Surfing." (Thanks to Tony Tezak, owner of TezakTrafficPower, for the title!)
I wrote this blog because I wanted to share what I already mentioned to Brenda earlier over skype. It was my first ever encounter with Brenda some months back when I started in the field of Internet marketing. Brenda most probably doesn't remember this, but she's the very first Internet marketer that I spoke with on chat when I was starting out. I can still vividly remember her first advice.. add a picture to my profile at ILH so that others will know me. Little did I know then that that was one of the important steps -- Branding Myself. And now, several months down the line, I'm grateful to people like Brenda who take their time out to help out and teach the newbies like me then. I applaud Brenda and people like her who truly care. For me, this is the mark of a true Internet marketer.
With the increasing popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, social surfing as we call it in the traffic exchange world won't be far behind. Personally, I prefer surfing at traffic exchange sites whose owners are visible and responsive. It would be difficult to do business with one who's hiding in an ivory tower. On that note, I'm wrapping up this post as I do have to plan on my next steps in becoming more visible in the online world. Enjoy your weekend! Till next blogging time.. ta-tah! ^_^
