Is It Possible to Partner With a Traffic Provider

20 replies
I am a relatively new Internet marketer who has purchased a MOBE Titanium Membership. I have set up a blog, Leadpages account, autoresponder, website, and continue to purchase the MOBE ready made emails and blog posts on a monthly basis. Unfortunately recent family issues and other business interests have taken a lot of time from me and strained my finances in this effort.
I was considering just abandoning this business, but I think it could still generate a good cash flow if I was able to work with a traffic professional able to drive massive traffic and tweak the landing page for best results. I would look to split all profits from the sales 50/50 with this person. Of course I would offer complete transparency to whoever I worked with along with complete access to my MOBE backpage.
Does anyone think this is a viable option, and if so, does anyone have suggestions as to where I could find such a traffic generating "expert" (or even a not so expert) willing to partner with me? I am thinking this might be a good opportunity for someone with good traffic generating abilities unable to afford the high initial MOBE buy in fees but I am not sure.
Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
AJ

    Most traffic experts will probably sell you a traffic package, but will probably not want to partner with you. Especially to a MOBE site. People that are traffic experts are generating that traffic to their own sites they do not need yours.

    Your best bet would be to learn how to generate traffic on your own, Traffic dashboard by Marlon Sanders, or Traffic Live by Kim Roach. There are also numerous courses and ebooks on Solo Ads which can be highly effective if done correctly

    NOT A GREAT IDEA AT ALL

    I totally can understand that you are time broke
    to run your business,

    Your looking for someone who has traffic to work
    with you in 50/50 partnership.

    The way i look at it is if an expert traffic guy really
    want to get in to a business, he can and also drive
    all his traffic to his own business and profit full 100%

    Very likely that could happen but what i do suggest
    to learn and master 1 or 2 traffic strategies and give
    it full focus,

    All you need to do is try focus on traffic about 30 min
    a day which i believe is not hard, and overtime you
    will see results...

    The other solution is invest in your business with paid
    traffic...

    The other thing is if i started a business, no matter how
    time broke or how bad the situation is, if i believe in
    my product or funnel, i would never give even think
    of giving it away,

    Good Luck mate

    There are different types of traffic experts. There are the guys that drive traffic to products for a living and the guys that sell traffic to others for a living. You want to find the guys that drive traffic. Many refer to them as super affiliates.

    As all the people above me told you that most big traffic gurus will not want to partner with since they can get all the profits for themselves.

    So the only way is to master the art of getting traffic by your own self. And it`s not very tough to do that. Focus on one or two traffic strategies like ( seo, solo, ppc or social media) and do your homework on a daily basis and you will get good results overtime.

    Hi AJ.

    Life happens to us all especially after starting a business like MOBE. (I am not affiliated with them in any way).

    However, they are a 'life changer' for people who are prepared to work for their success.

    You can't fit every thing into your schedule with only 24 hours in a day.

    The only people who will 'make it' online are the one's who learn how to 'create' their own traffic.

    A tad diversion from the topic (aopologies already), I have read negative reviews about MOBE. And those negative reviews are not from some average IMer who're still struggling but from people who are well established and earning thousands per month already. They were into the system for quite a while and they dislike the strategies adopted.

    So just wondering what are the opinions of people here on MOBE? And I understand that people who succeed with the system have positive and people who fails or struggles have negative reviews. So, keeping the biasness apart, expect the honest review. Thanks

      One thing that has not been mentioned is the caution to be leary of anyone agreeing to what you are offering.

      For the reasons others have already mentioned, a legitimate traffic expert is not going to agree to your offer. They may make you an offer to drive traffic. But there is nothing in your offer that would be attractive to a legitimate traffic expert.

      There are many ways you can pay for traffic. Some of those ways could include having a traffic expert send you traffic.

      Solo ad sellers, ppc campaign experts, and so on. These are rarely great for the mere fact that anyone doing this for hire will likely have some success, but if they are wildly successful at it, then why would they do it for hire when they could do it for themselves for more profit?

      That is not to say that there are not legitimate people and companies selling Solo Ads and PPC campaign management... because there are many legitimate people and companies selling those.

      You can make those traffic methods work... but the point is... YOU make them work.

      I have seen some successful marketers that will do JV partnerships for a price. This also sometimes has a positive outcome. But it does not remove the work or time needed to invest yourself into the business.

      There are many methods to drive traffic. While some of these are paid methods... they all require your time and expertise.

      You can succeed.... as long as you remember that it is - YOU - that succeeds or fails.

    No sense throwing good money after bad. If you'd done more research, chances are you wouldn't have gotten involved. It's obviously not working as they claimed or you wouldn't be here.

    Regroup and when you have a better plan, try again.

      Not so sure on that one Brent. I don't believe the product is an issue. I think I was too new for such a big bite.

    Sure definitely. The best partnerships for generating traffic are webinar exchanges. Next best is doing a list swap with someone in your industry. If you can't strike up that kind or relationship then an old fashioned link exchange can drive traffic for years.

    Hi

    I was a platinum member with MOBE for over 6 months and gave it my all. Spent tons on traffic and what my traffic coach taught me. I was able to grow a list very large quickly but in the end wasn't even close to what I invested.

    I even purchased their WSGT traffic which gives you actual buyers and not 1 person upgraded.

    Now there are people who are succeeding with it but for me it did not work. I went to Empower Network and was able to get over 40 signups with my first 1 1/2 months....so am happy I moved on since I am now learning what really works.

    Sorry to get off topic but you need to test your own traffic sources...Bing PPC is pretty cheap...so just send traffic and start are the first step and optimize until you get sales.

    Probably not what you wanna hear but that was just my personal experience and many others......DEF you must use your own landing pages and I highly suggest you have a Bridge page with a short video from you welcoming them before it goes to sales page.

    PEOPLE BUY FROM POEPLE....so don;t just send them from landing page straight to offer

    best of luck and Jarrod.....MOBE is not a scam because it didn't work for you and me....ir works form many others but does need better quality traffic and much more custom funnels than other programs out their I think.

      I've gone through many IM programs. Some have worked, many have not. Of all the ones that have not, the only one I call a scam is MOBE. It's not a scam just because it didn't work for me, but it is very much a scam.

      The reason things like MOBE and Empower Network are considered scams is because they are like pyramid schemes. You make money by selling people the program who then make money by selling people the program.

      Few people join MOBE or Empower Network and make money promoting their own business like Fitness Training or Learning a New Language.

      They make their money be selling people MOBE or Empower Network.

      You say you made money after joining Empower Network with 40 sign ups in 1 1/2 months.

      Sign ups for what... the Empower Network?

      See what I mean?

    I think these kind of deals work best when you have something that is
    unique, not when the traffic provider can buy into the same program you
    are promoting. Hence, the common response you got above of why
    can't the traffic provider buy the program and keep the 100%.

    This is the same reason why a lot of marketers in the CPA field complain
    about getting ripped off as well. When the CPA program owner can
    see where they are driving converting traffic from, why wouldn't they
    "steal" that information, drive their own traffic and keep all the money?

    If you do find a traffic provider, what would be the difference between paying them, as opposed to paying Google Adwords for easy clicks? Super simple.

    Some people sell traffic for a living, and then there are networks that offer you traffic packages. Personally i'd make the task easy and get the traffic myself without paying for any of these options.

      This is the reason I have, often time, suggested that newbies learn to find and drive targeted traffic before jumping into any significant project - either self created or purchased.

      You will hear many arguments for this or that but the bottom line is driving targeted traffic. All the other things can be learned, tweaked and perfected, but struggling with traffic along the way is handicapping your IM efforts for the long term.

    I don't know if it's just me or maybe some of you noticed too.

    acbrillo, originally started this thread asking for any advise if "He can partner with a traffic provider?"
    I would definitely agree with Omarkenawy "Master the art of getting traffic by your own self & focus on 1 or 2 traffic strategies."

    Reading through the replies, a lot are just trashing MOBE immediately. Sorry to hear that it didn't work for some of you but it is completely irrelevant & biased to the main thread.

    Also, if it is a real scam, then why is it still operating now- for 7 years already & affiliates like myself are earning good money?
    I get around £10K-13K/month, considering that I am an MLR affiliate (the 1st Level). It is all in the mindset guys.

    To sum it all up, MOBE business opportunities is NOT for everyone.
    If it didn't work for you, just LET IT GO & find another opportunity that "might" work for you.
    Trashing a company over & over again will not get you anywhere. #Justsaying
