As I have pointed out in previous posts, this is a sports blog, but every now and the I will delve into the world of Traffic Exchanges and the happenings in that world as well, this is one of those times. I also mentioned in a previous post that the person that introduced me to the world of traffic exchanges, my mentor, my friend, my little sister, Rhonda Pizor has always been there for me, and that behavior has transferred into the traffic exchange industry. Rhonda is the owner and designer of MakeMySplash dedicated to the design and implementation of advertising designs and websites for the traffic industry. She has been doing this for nearly 2 years, has a graphic design certificate and is constantly improving her craft.
In my honest opinion, she has no equal in this business, though there are others out there that try, no one compares to her quality of work. She has designed splash pages, squeeze pages, banners, and other items for some of the biggest names in the industry, including Click Track Profit and Legacy Hits, along with other high profile owners and affiliates that go to her anytime they need a high quality design at a fair price. She provides superior support for her designs and is always available by phone, Skype, or email to those that need her services or help.
Recently a Blog post was made by one of her “competitors” and I use that term loosely, cause this person is not a designer, nor are they an artist. Anyway this person criticized Rhonda’s work and her business because they noticed a spelling error on one her splash pages that had been designed for one owner of an extremely popular traffic exchange, throwing her under the bus in the process, making “fun” of her website, and just being low, callous, and downright nasty about it. What she failed to understand is that this industry is built on mistakes, learning from them, and getting better. Most of the owners and affiliates in the industry are nice, caring, helpful and encouraging individuals that look out for each other, that prop each other up and truly want everyone to have success. The road this person decided to take when pointing out this “mistake” was not only detrimental, to a certain degree, to Rhonda and her business, but to herself as well. Pointing out other peoples mistakes in a negative manner is just another form of bullying, and instead of getting the result they were looking for, specifically they wanted to take business from Rhonda, she instead disturbed a hornets nest, and made herself look shallow and petty.
Word of advice…
Focus more on what YOU are doing, not so much what others are doing or not doing, and you will go a long way in earning respect, admiration, and customers. You are what you make of it in this business, and your behavior, your work ethic, and your product will benefit if that is your focus and not what someone that has been doing it longer, better, and is successful. What you do has no bearing on what I do, unless it inspires me to do better, unless it inspires me to achieve my goals, and unless it wakes me up and gets me off my ass to try harder. I would normally not give you a second look, cause to this point NOTHING you have done has done anything to inspire me, but to come out and throw a baseless and hurtful attack at a close personal friend of mine, one I have known for over 13 years and know better than I know my own family, well that’s gonna get my attention. Your actions have done nothing but backfired, cause I know for a fact, Rhonda has more class, more poise, and especially more TALENT than you do, and this will only grow her business and detract from yours.
Get in the game or ride the bench….its up to you
