Hi, I’ve got David McKee here. He is a member of TrafficDrill.com, and my name is John S. Rhodes. I am one of the Rhodes brothers. I’m asking David a few questions here. I think some folks are gonna be pretty interested in what David has to say. Primarily because he joined Traffic Drill and in a very short period of time he was able to utilize the system, utilize the forum, work with members and achieve some really great results. And I wanted to give him an opportunity to share that success with you. So, David, tell us a little bit about yourself, and feel free to drop a few URLs here and there, if you’d like, so people can get a feel for what you do, who you are, and that sort of thing.

David McKee
Well, John, I’ve been a software engineer for the last twenty years and written in just about every language there is, practically. Mainly, in Java nowadays, but of course Java Script, PHP & all that kind of stuff. But, my day job is I develop network software and business software, mainly for banks and things like that. But, I’ve been trying to build sites online, and kind of go off on my own. As far as doing things with Traffic Drill, that was a real boost for me, because I’ve had some sites, I was doing some copywriting, doing some software development online, that kind of thing, and needed to figure out ways to drive traffic. So, that’s kind of how I fell into Traffic Drill.

John S. Rhodes
Awesome, so this is a part-time thing for you then?

David McKee
Yeah, it is kind of. What I do is I work all day on my software stuff for my company, and then spend all my extra time working on my sites and stuff, when I’m not with the family and what not, of course.

John S. Rhodes
Right, right. So the way I think about that for you then, and a lot of Traffic Drillers actually fall into these exact same circumstances, you know, you’re working all day, you don’t have a whole lot of time on the nights and the weekends, so you have to find tools and techniques and services to help you get the job done. If you do it yourself, if you were working all day, if this was your full-time thing, then maybe you wouldn’t need Traffic Drill quite as much. So, in your case, it really sounds like it’s going to be a time-saver, or, it is a time-saver. Is that pretty accurate?

David McKee
Yeah, well, I kind of think of it more like a major leverage. For me, it allows me to find ways to build traffic and talk to people who’ve done it, like yourself and the other members, who know a lot of tricks. And I basically just look through the tricks, listen to the videos, and I just did the stuff, and I got results. And, you know, nothing succeeds like success, I guess.

John S. Rhodes
Right. Yeah, so it sounds like maybe anyone, a full-timer or a part-timer, would benefit then. That’s great. Where did you first hear about Traffic Drill?

David McKee
Well, I basically sign up to just about every kind of internet business thing that has like free kinds of e-newsletters, things like that. I got, like Michael Senoff, I don’t know if you’ve heard of him. Or, Michael Thornton.

John S. Rhodes
Oh, yeah, Michael Thornton.

David McKee
Dan Locke, just, all these different internet marketers, I get all of their emails, and I read through them and when I see something in there that says, hey you should check this out, I’ll check it out. If it’s somebody that I trust, I’ll check it out and somehow, I can’t exactly remember where, but one of those newsletters pointed me to Traffic Drill, and I’ve heard of, you know, you guys, the Rhodes brothers, a couple of times.

John S. Rhodes
Yeah, yeah.

David McKee
You guys pop up a lot. So, you know, I checked it out, and, actually I believe I saw you guys on Warrior forum.

John S. Rhodes
OK, that’s entirely possible there. Trust is a big thing, you’re really hitting on a key point there. If you can’t trust the source, then really, what’s the point? You don’t know what you’re gonna get. You’d like to have a known quantity when you’re making these purchases online and getting assistance.

David McKee
Yeah, I make very few purchases online. I know a lot of people out there in internet business buy everything. But I basically think that because a lot of these people who are gurus now started out on a shoestring and they didn’t buy all this stuff, that I should be able to do the same thing. So when I buy something, such as Traffic Drill, I’ve checked it out pretty thoroughly, and I know that I’m going to get what I expect to get out of it.

John S. Rhodes
Right. Yeah, cool. That’s good, a lot of people do do that, they actually probably have the money, but they don’t spend it deliberately, so that they do sort of learn in the trenches and it sounds like that’s the path you’ve taken. That’s not to say you wouldn’t go with a JV, you know, joint venture, if it was dangled in front of you and it was the right folks, but I do know a lot of folks in your circumstances, in your shoes, they do try to do that. So that’s really cool. That really helps filter out the good stuff and bad stuff. What did you think about Traffic Drill at first, you know, when you first saw the sales page, when you first decided to join, then got inside, and what were your initial thoughts?

John S. Rhodes
Well, I mean the sales page is really good. Like I said I’ve kind of been studying copywriting for the last couple years, too. That’s another set of the people that I have e-newsletters from are a lot of copywriters out there. I read everything that they write, I read their ads, I’ve got lots of books on it. It’s well written copy. It was on, I believe again, this was on Warrior forum that I saw it. But then I went into the forum and actually checked the people who were on it, who were talking about it on the forum. In order to make sure that it wasn’t just copy with nothing behind it. My first impression was this sounds like something really good, and the price was right, so, you know for twenty bucks you can’t go wrong, check it out for 30 days, so I figured what the heck. And I was very surprised, I’ve already made that back twice, in sales that I got.

John S. Rhodes
Yeah, so let’s talk about that.

David McKee
Just in a little newsletter that I have.

John S. Rhodes
That’s really awesome. So, what kind of results? One of the things that I thought was really amazing is you actually talked about getting some page rank in just, what was it, four or five days, right?

David McKee
Yeah, I have a site called AchieveMaster which, right now, all I’m selling on there is a business collection. 263 copywriting business books. That’s www.achievemaster.com, but that site’s mainly for a piece of software I’m developing, which is basically for tracking your goals and achievements, and it allows you to do brainstorming with mindmaps and things like that and brings it all together into a single collaborative whole, and allows you to collaborate with other people or with other list systems. I’ve been working on that for almost 8 months and hope to have it done in another couple and be selling that on that site. But I basically wanted to start getting traffic to the site and that’s why I set up the $7 collection of business books, get people to it, and then I could start building a list, and then use that to sell the product in the future.

John S. Rhodes
Awesome. So that was achievemaster.com?

David McKee
That’s correct.

John S. Rhodes
Great. I did take a look at the site and there is a lot of really good stuff there for an amazing price. So anyone who’s looking for some really good information in this niche definitely head over to achievemaster.com.

David McKee
Well, I tried to write a lot of good articles and I post, of course, on ezine. Course I read all you guys’ Traffic Hammer and listen to all those things too. So, you know, that stuff’s been around the web for awhile, and people talked about how you build your back links but when I started seeing some of the awesome ideas for building real social network backlinks and bookmarking links and stuff, I just said I’m gonna start doing some of this stuff. So my page rank went from just nothing, actually one of the things I have to admit is I never even really checked it out. But I would just see the little white bar up there in my Firefox, which meant that basically you have no page rank. And within five days I started seeing green on that, and now I’ve got a visible chunk of page rank up there. It’s still not as high as I’d like it to be, I think it’s like one, but that’s better than zero.

John S. Rhodes
Yeah.

David McKee
I got that in a very short time, I was pretty happy with that.

John S. Rhodes
That’s fantastic. Within five days to get any page rank is really quite something. So let me, if you don’t mind just for a moment, give folks a little bit of background on Traffic Drill and you can comment. So, for folks who don’t know, who haven’t been to trafficdrill.com, or have not joined yet, there’s a number of ways that people can actually generate traffic from inside Traffic Drill. There’s a link exchange, so you can provide sites where people can post their links or you can post links for them. You can exchange links if you are in the same niche, and it makes sense. There’s also a traffic exchange, where you can ask people to help you out. And that can be as simple as people utilizing Stumble Upon, and what that might mean, is you ask people to look at the page or the site that you want some traffic to, and if they like it, they can give you a thumbs up and maybe give you a review. In another case, you might ask people to, perhaps, write a twit on Twitter, so put a little posting or an update on Twitter. In other cases, you might ask them to include something small on a blog entry that they have written on some topic, and so on, and so forth. But basically it’s a social area, it’s a forum where people are really helping each other. And now in addition to that, and, David, you had mentioned this, in addition to that we have, oh man, I don’t know, probably 8 or 10 different rock solid resources inside the Traffic Drill membership, where people can download, there’s several videos in there, I think 3 or 4 videos we have in there now, and the number of manuals, anything from how to utilize and exploit RSS to literally how to go get your site indexed more quickly, things of that nature. So, David, do you have any comments on these materials or the link exchange or the traffic exchange?

David McKee
Well, one of the things is I’ve found some great sites that are kind of related to mine, and we’ve actually exchanged blogroll links, so we were crossed like that way with other sites. So that way visitors from one link can move to another. Some times that can be bad, but you know, if you’re in a related site you’re helping each other out, so those are usually pretty strong links, pretty juicy. Certainly the videos and the manuals, I mean, those are products you guys have sold in the past and now they’re on here for anyone that belongs to the sites. That’s real good stuff.

John S. Rhodes
Yeah, yeah. Definitely, definitely. We try to put a lot of value into this so, even if folks stay in for a couple months, they definitely get that value right up front, and we are always adding new material. David, for example, I’m not sure if you’ve seen the latest upload that I added. It’s four different methods actually for finding really great keywords, because if you’re gonna be generating content, writing blog entries, or if you’re gonna do some article marketing, you need those great keywords. And in turn, of course, that leads downstream to driving traffic to those blog entries or those articles and so on. So one of the things that we do know and that we’re gonna continue doing is adding value to the membership, providing more of these downloads, more videos, more hands-on materials that David and I are referencing. So let’s start wrapping it up here. Let me ask you sort of a direct question. What do you think the number one thing is about Traffic Drill? What would you say personally is number one for you?

David McKee
For me, it allows me to network with like-minded people, which a lot of times, you see that their stuff out there is sales pages and stuff but you don’t know who they really are but, I mean, I’ve actually done an interview with another guy whose building some podcasts and, I mean, this is really cool it’s like going to a conference except that you do it from your computer and it’s really nice. Actually this, using Skype, is something I’d never really done before, I knew about it but I never really use it, I just use my cellphone. Well, now, I’m using this a lot more, I’ve learned a ton of stuff so I would say anybody whose getting into the internet marketing, really needs to blog in something like this, because you learn 10 times faster than you would just reading stuff.

John S. Rhodes
Yeah, so it sounds like not only are you getting some educational material, and some insight, as well as, the big part of this is you’re actually getting traffic, you’re getting page rank, and you’re gonna be showing up in the search engines. So those are two huge methods, but also a side benefit because Traffic Drill is primarily a forum, a very tight knit forum, where people are helping each other drive traffic, you’re actually forming some great relationships. You know, and that leads to some significant joint ventures. We’ve made thousands upon thousands of dollars through our relationships with other people. You build up a trust with people and, of course, Traffic Drill facilitates that with the karma system. You build up a trust, you can see what people are doing, what they’re saying. But that networking and then in turn the JVs, can lead to, honestly, a substantial income and it sounds like you’ve already taken advantage of that. And it wasn’t even something that we really promoted in the sales letter, it’s not something that we’ve promoted at all, but it’s definitely a side effect, which is really awesome. That’s great to hear.

David McKee
Yeah, I mean, you talking about command the search engines, you type the words, the master achiever, I’m number two in the Google search. So I’m pretty happy with that.

John S. Rhodes
That’s pretty awesome. Hey, did we miss anything, David? Anything I didn’t ask you about? Anything else that, something cool you think folks might want to hear about and know about?

David McKee
No, I mean, I just think, one of the things you could really leverage is that if you’re doing internet marketing, or even if you’re not, and you’re just looking for a community of like-minded people that can help you get there faster. Well, Traffic Drill’s really an awesome tool.

John S. Rhodes
Yeah, thanks, thanks a lot, David, that really means a lot. Let’s wrap it up here. So, again, this is John S. Rhodes, of the Rhodes brothers, and I’m one of the guys behind, one of the founders of Traffic Drill, and that’s trafficdrill.com. We’ve been talking with David McKee, and he’s the guy behind achievemaster.com. Definitely check out that site. It’s a real nice site, lots of good material there, and he’s offering up a ton of stuff for free. And then there’s also some other awesome material there for really next to nothing, definitely worth grabbing. OK, well, thanks a lot, take care.

David McKee
Alright, you, too, John.
