Jonathan Mizel (the maker of Traffic Evolution) used to be the guru to the gurus in the internet marketing world. Cutting his teeth on bulletin boards (BBS) – before the internet really took off – he’s been a pioneer from the word ‘go’. He even started one of the first internet marketing coaching clubs where some of the smartest online marketers would attended including John Reese, Marlon Sanders and Glenn Livingston.
But where did he go?
Jonathan has pretty much been off the guru circuit for the better part of 4 years. You see, he’s one of those guys who is in the trenches taking action – not just marketing internet marketing products to the internet marketing crowd. He sells real products, to real people, in the real world – working with Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, American Express, Intel and Disney.
What’s he been doing?
Apart from being a recluse in Maui Hawaii, Jonathan’s been quietly developing his system for media buying. Most people haven’t even heard of this advertising industry but it serves billions of banner ads, popups and contextual ads every day (and it has nothing to do with Google, Bing or Yahoo).
When I heard what he was doing, I tried over the course of 3-4 months to line up a call but he’s tough to catch. Finally I got him locked down and recorded one of my best calls yet – Jonathan himself commented (after the call) that I had him talking about stuff he’s never shared before. Heck, this call will most likely be included in his new course Traffic Evolution.
But enough rambeling from me, click here to download the call for nothing 🙂 It’s the best Traffic Evolution Review around.

Wow… good find! Traffic Evolution and Jonathan Mizel go down as legends in the Internet marketing scene. Good to see that things are going well for him and Traffic Evolution. Good deal with the interview as well, very enlightening and “thought provoking.”
So SEO is not the end of the line then. When you’ve hit the top rank in search engines, what do you do to generate more profits? Jonathan just gave the best answer, paid media. It’s amazing to hear that some sites out there get millions of visitors in an hour using this technique. I take it though that this must be a strategy reserved for the internet marketing bigwigs out there. Perhaps small time marketers might just don’t have the right resources to execute this?
I think the guy’s right. With paid media you get almost instant results as compared to SEO. Because SEO takes time and if you really want to see huge traffic, then you need to be at the top spot, and again, that takes time, money and a lot of effort. But if you do put yourself in front of your target audience with the help of online ads, you can instantly connect with your potential customers. So yeah, for those who have no patience with SEO, I think Mizel’s approach is a good alternative.
What Jonathan shared made a lot of sense. Taking your business seriously does not only mean that you have the drive to make it successful.
This also means that you have to be conscious of things that might just be ‘under your nose’ like strategies of competitors, doing split testing, picking each other’s brain among other useful techniques to get ahead of competition.
In the end, I like the way he stressed on getting other traffic sources based on one’s (financial) capacity and preference, as most of the start up affiliates usually rely heavily on SEO for site traffic.
