Are Text Ad Exchanges the next sign up bonus fad?

Online targeted advertising with an arrow through a dollar bill.I usually don’t group sign up bonus sites together like this because I like to write a little bit about what makes the free sign up bonus site unique. In this case, I’ve seen so many Text Ad Exchanges pop up that are offering $5.00 sign up bonuses that I seriously don’t have the time and patience to write individually about them.

If you take a close look at all these Text Ad Exchanges, you’ll notice they are all pretty much the same. What would be the point of writing about each one individually when they clearly aren’t individual and or unique by any means?

This could either be a good thing or a bad thing. It kind of reminds me of bux sites. I remember those popping up all over the place a little over a year ago. Now you don’t see too many new ones because people figured out that a bunch of amateur hacks were running the Bux sites.

Are these Text Ad Exchanges the new fad when it comes to ripping people off? I don’t know. I only write about these sites to let you know there is some free money for signing up, but I highly recommend that you definitely do not invest too much time or any money in the sites. You have to do your own due diligence.

I ran into these new sign up bonus sites over the past month. (You have to request the bonus by contacting each site’s admin individually.)

Total = $35.00

I’m also not too impressed with the design of these sites. They all look very unprofessional in my opinion with the exception of a few of them. Maybe all these web designers/entrepreneurs just simply don’t have a sense of design.

I’m going to repeat this one more time. Don’t invest any money or serious time in these sites, they seem to have the potential to be rip offs. I would however take advantage of the free advertising credits you will receive for signing up and participating in e-mail ad credits.

    I have getrespond for my autoresponder / I did try out trafficwave
    autoresponder and it was alot better then getrespond. More tools
    and easy to set up everything for my online business. I made the change and transfered everything to trafficwave.

    When you first log in, you will see a screen giving you the option of becoming an Affiliate or a Customer.

    What’s the difference?

    A Customer simply wants to use the tools for their own business or project. They are not interested in developing additional income through promoting

    An Affiliate wants to earn additional income by referring others to

    You may select either option at this time. There is no additional charge to become an Affiliate.

    Once you have completed this form, you will be taken to your back office and will not need to view this form again. If you start by becoming a Customer and later want to become an Affiliate, simply log in to your members area and select the option to “Become An Independent Affiliate”.
