Queen Storm Wins Top Builder at Medieval Hits, Promotes CastlesGold.com

August 25th, 2007

A person going by the moniker of “Queen Storm” (not to be confused with Stormspotter aka Bonnie Davis) has won the most recent Top Builder award at Medieval Hits. She is the owner of a relatively new PTR program called Castles Gold. I have tentatively joined her program because she is offering a very good advertising deal in a bid to gain new members and get her program off the ground. For only one dollar, you can get 100,000 banner impressions, 10,000 traffic exchange hits, one featured (front page) ad for two months, 10,000 featured banner rotations, and 500 clicks in the PTC section of the site. There is also a drawing for various cash prizes that will be held after 150 ad packages are sold.

Of course, the obvious disadvantage to all of this is the fact that because the PTR in question is a relatively new one, the advertising credits will have a rather limited audience in the early stages of the program. However, for such a low price, the credits can be bought in advance and saved up for a time when the program has more members, at which point the advertising will be worth far more than its initial cost. In the past, I have used this strategy quite effectively with PTR text link ads; if you can get in at the beginning when the advertising is still very cheap, it is possible to gain a substantial influx of traffic and referrals after the program really takes off. Here is the full text of the Medieval Hits update. Queen Storm’s piece begins after the third paragraph:

Karl Erfurt,

The Kingdom Crier

I am installing a new site checker. All spy ware and ad ware will be detected.
If you know it is present on any of your sites or banners, please remove it.
Many of you may not even be aware that it is present, so if you see your sites suddenly appear on “review”, that is probably why.
I will be going through them all over the next few days.

Also, some citizens will find themselves set to inactive. Under your terms of service, you are required to remain active. Four weeks in a row without surfing 20 sites, will automatically set you to “inactive”. You will need to send a support ticket to reactivate your account. After 90 days, your account will be deleted.
“Top Builder”
For her great referral efforts (5 referrals + 2 pending),
Queen Storm is last weeks “Top Builder”

Hello everyone, Queen Storm here. How do I get referrals in my many programs? Well, I belong to a few great surf sites like Medieval Hits, Dragons Gold Surf, AA Hits, Waters Edge and Flaming Fast Hits. I also belong to a number of paid to read sites where I am upgraded. I put my links anywhere and everywhere I can think of. I also manage 4 ptr’s and own a PTC program. I give offers to people who join my down line. Good banners, and if using an email or text ad, make sure they are well written always helps.

I also have an offer for you today. I actually made a splash page (my first one) for it so I’ll just put the link here. I am having a $1 ad sale.
Check out everything you get for $1. Also, if you order the pack and in your payment notes mention Medieval Hits, I will throw in a ptc for 500 clicks for each pack you buy. While on the splash page, the link to my site is “clickable” and opens in a new window, so check that out also. I am offering a free lifetime upgrade to the first 500 members plus 1000 free click exchange (this is like a manual surf) to anyone who joins.

Just email me at support@castlesgold.com

Thanks for your time.
Have a great day and Happy Surfin
I promised an upgrade deal!
Here it is
Anyone who upgrades before Sept 1 can upgrade for 1/2 price!
And lock it in at that price for life
I hope you all wisely take advantage of this upgrade offer.
I assure you that it will never be offered at this price again.
(Upgrade link is below your name “upgrade available”
We are still struggling with the upgrade issues.
If you are having trouble, please send me a support ticket with as much detail as possible so that we can track down the problem.

Remember to use your downline mailer to encourage your new team members

I received an invitation to the pre-launch of ExitExplosion.com but I am not going to promote it. I don’t like exit ads and I would prefer that they not be used. They say popup blockers will not block these exit ads and that has me concerned. Still it’s a popup and if you start using them, your site is going to be removed. I think the Footer Ads are a much better advertising solution and I would prefer my users use Footer Ads and not exit ads. I have added them to this site as an example and to help draw new citizens in to our Kingdom to view your sites. If you find it too annoying, let me know and I’ll remove them.

The link board should be, up and running soon.
