My Traveling Credit Earning Page

 Welcome! To my traveling credit earning page! You too can make one if you like, message me if you need help Promises Huge Traffic, Do They Deliver?

    Maxvisits is a website that delivers various types of web traffic to your website, blog, social media profile, etc.  They advertise their services for as little as $1 for 1000 visitors which, on paper, is a reasonable enough deal.  I found this website on my favorite traffic exchange for conversions and for finding new programs to try out, LeadsLeap.  And if you aren't already signed up for LeadsLeap yourself what the hell are you waiting for?!?!  If you're serious about earning an online income and aren't a member of LeadsLeap, you should be ashamed of yourself, I'm embarrassed for you to be honest.  But, I digress.  And trust me there will be an article from me about LeadsLeap in the near future(spoiler alert: I am an openly unapologetic fan of LeadsLeap and I don't care who knows it).

Feeling Adventurous?

Foreign traffic

Because reasons, and it had a share button for blogger.  It's the equivalent of searching sketchy back alleys for an affordable deal, but it can be a decent source of new leads or opportunities. Plus it's fun, just make sure to bring protection.

Traffic Exchange Quick Look: RotatorTraffic

    A lot of people know I'm a big fan of free traffic sources and I often get asked what I do to drive traffic to my sites.  The cop out answer is that I use a whole bunch of resources, too numerous to list in a single blog post.  But in an effort to not cop out I figured I'd just start throwing out quick over views of free traffic resources that I like or think have a useful feature or one that has a design I think looks cool (ok, so sometimes my reason for using a site isn't the best of reasons, but looking cool is still important). So anyway yeah here we go:


    First off, I'm going to give the site owner the benefit of a doubt and assume that the domain name two Fs) was unavailable, so he had to go with
    This site doesn't have the largest user base but there are several members that surf regularly so you'll get hits.  What I like about this site is a feature which helps it stand out from the crowd while earning you a good amount of traffic.  Surfing 25 sites at RotatorTrafic on any given day will unlock the option to claim an Upgraded account status for 24 hours, which is pretty damn handy.  And this is available every single day if you want it.
    If a quick one day boost of traffic is what you need this site might be one to consider.  At times it's probably not the most engaged traffic, but still, getting your ads out there for free is always a plus. My recommendation for this site is to surf it as a source of supplemental traffic when you've got some free time to bump up traffic numbers but your time would be better spent elsewhere when it comes to your primary roster of TEs.

Site Highlight: Free daily account upgrade after 25 sites surfed
Surf Ratio: 3:1 Free, 1:1 Upgraded
Surf Timer: 6 seconds Free, 3 seconds Upgraded
Occasional Prize Pages


Fun! With Questionable Testimonials

    Hello and welcome to the inaugural installment of, Fun! With Questionable Testimonials.  A recurring segment where I call out blatantly fake, disingenuous or clearly-outsourced-to-a-late-90s-Chatbot testimonials featured on websites throughout the web.  I rarely pay too much attention to testimonials but, on a fairly regular basis, I'll happen to glance upon a site with testimonials so dubious that I end up wasting time wondering who the site owners, that place these testimonials on their sites, think they're fooling.  My main problem are the completely fictional testimonials that I see, but I'll occasionally see real testimonials from real people so blatantly misleading that they need to be taken to task for it.

Here is an excellent example of an accurate and completely genuine, unbiased testimonial from the FreeCashStreams Facebook page.

I Try Surfing Non-English Traffic Exchanges

    A lot of traffic exchange sites state, in their terms of service, that any sites submitted by a member must be in English (or whatever the language spoken by the site owner of Pistol Packin Mama is).  This got me wondering what the sites that aren't in English do if they need to exchange traffic with others.  Do they just learn English? Do they hate traffic exchanges? Do they randomly pick a money making program that's in English and hope the squiggly looking gibberish they're promoting is a winner?

Topstarclick Update

TopstarClick PTC

    I have this love hate relationship with PTC sites, I love them for reasons I can't explain and conversely, I hate them for all the legitimate reasons there are to hate them.  So when I threw out a brief post about Topstarclick the other day, I more or less forgot about them, I really only made the post in order to inform readers, who are into PTC sites.  So, for a couple of days, I didn't realize I had a bunch of referrals from said post and had reached payout.  Anyway long story short, I initially posted that Topstarclick offers a $1.50 sign up bonus coupled with a low $2 cashout, coupled even further with a one cent per click average for free members. FYI their timers for the one cent clicks move at the speed of a geriatric snail with a bowling ball chained to its shell. Based on my past experience with PTC sites all these factors made me assume I'd never see any sort of payment from this site, however.....

   Topstarclick shocked me by not only paying me, but doing so in under 24hrs after my request.  It is still unclear to me how they can possibly maintain this sort of generosity, but for the time being they're legit and I applaud them.
    Bravo, Topstarclicks, at this moment you guys are awesome and I hope you continue to be awesome for as long as you can.

HonestClique: New PTC


    Quick heads up about a relatively new PTC site, I think it's new anyway I don't really keep up, I'm still a sucker for these things though idk why.  But anyway yeah....Minimum cashout is $2 through Payza or Bitcoin. 20 cents in your publisher account upon sign up (you can't afford any advertising for that amount) and 10 cents in your earnings account.

Nice to see Erin Esurance getting legit work again

Are You Incorporating RCE Games in Your Online Earning Portfolio?

    Well, are you?  You'd actually be forgiven for not even knowing what RCE Games are, as they are a definite niche market.  If played right and you can fit one or two into your business schedule, RCE Games can provide a nice supplement to whatever income system you currently have in place.

Fronto Lock Screen app for your Android device

    Fronto an Android app that pays you to use as your lock screen, takes awhile to accumulate points so it amounts to about $5 a month, but that's better than the $0 a month the normal lock screen paid. I'm a big fan of hassle free money and this app is the definition of that.

    Hello and welcome back to my list of strange items that can be found for sale at online megastore TripleClicks.  And, as a TripleClicks affiliate I have taken it upon myself to gather these items, and items like them, all in one collection, because if my sales figures aren't really wowing them over at corporate anyway, I might as well have fun with it.

TopStarClick PTC Free Advertising

    Quick post to let anyone who cares know about TopStarClick, a new PTC/TE that appears to be run by those Hoopla robots, that or they're plagiarizing them.  Either way for the time being they're offering free $1.50 sign up bonus and you know what that advertising!!!! Until realizing that bonus doesn't go into your purchase balance and you need to have a minimum of $5 to transfer to your purchase balance.  However the minimum cashout is $2 which means you're only $0.50 away from cashing out right off the bat.

160pack Revenue Share Site

    If you're into revenue share sites or haven't ever tried one, this might be a good option.  It's relatively new so it could go either way but I've always got my eyes peeled for new sources of income online.  With 160pack theres no risk though, other than time wasted as adding funds to your account is not a requirement (it'll just take longer for you to cash out).
    If you don't want to add any money into the site you can collect a balance from the PTC offers on the site (about 10 per day).  You can use your balance to buy active points which give you a penny a day and can be purchased for 60 cents.  You can eventually accumulate enough of a balance to purchase an upgrade which will by pass the need to add funds before cash out.  Paid members can cash out without waiting.

10 Weirdest Products Found at TripleClicks

   TripleClicks, for anyone that doesn't know, is the militarized wing of the SFI affiliate program, it is their online super store.  It makes me sad that whenever I describe it to someone their reply is always "oh, like Amazon".  It's kind of like the sibling of a mega celebrity who, despite also being talented, is always being overlooked.  It's Eric Roberts basically.

10 Traffic Exchanges with Highly Active Members

    If you're looking for a TE that provides  immediate free traffic, these 10 sites will definitely do it for you.  Any TE surfer has probably, at one point, signed up for a few sites only to assign their credits and then watch hits come in to their site at the speed of continental drift(which isn't necessarily a bad thing under certain circumstances).  Those sites aren't on this list.  The 10 sites that follow scoff at that 300 credits you just added to your campaign.
    *One last note before I get on with it already, this is FAR from an exhaustive list, this list is made up mainly of TEs I could name off the top of my head that always seem to have a decent amount of surf activity going on independent of day/time or promotional campaigns. I'll also be including a more detailed write up on these 10 shortly.

Our Sister Site is Up and Published!

    FreeCashStreams is proud to announce its sister site, created using the wordpress format.  It's sort of up and running but probably feeling kind of neglected at the moment, but no longer!

If this exclusive screen shot of the site doesn't make you ridiculously excited about this new blog, you might want to check your pulse because clearly you passed at some point and just haven't realized it yet.

    This a formal apology to my younger sister site and a promise that I'll stop pretending you don't exist from now on.  The site is kind of lacking content right now but it's main focus is going to be predominantly bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Here's a link to one of the few articles it contains, it would be swell if you could click that link and help feed a starving blog, because no blog should have to go to bed wondering where its next visitor will come from.

QoinPro Multicoin Faucet currently in beta testing

QoinPro Free Bitcoins every 24 hours

WTF is Feathercoin? Anyway just a quick blog post to let you all know about this, It's in beta at the moment but it seems cool enough and it generates 12 different cryptocoins for you each day, all you have to do is nothing. So I figure "meh, why not".  Check it out by clicking the banner if you feel like saying "meh, why not" too.

Dear Vinrasta, Sincerely, Your Number 1 Fan

Dear Vinrasta,

    Why does no one surf at you?   You're a perfectly good traffic exchange.  Better than most actually.  You quite smoothly, even on my mobile device, your leveling system is unlike any other site I've seen and your design looks professional and not like it was created using MS paint.  You even have a blog that gives useful tips and splash page rotator that gives different SEO tips.
    So why does everyone hate you? I've written about you before, but no one would tell me. Is your owner a prick or something?  Either way I still haven't left you. In fact I enjoy our time together, with your fields of vaguely psychadelic trees and fields where gleaming silver words breeze past.  Where twitters fly without care.

Look at that landscape and tell me you wouldnt want to live there

    Yet, something troubling is's getting lonely there Vinrasta.  I can only see a Kim Kardashian make up tips blog so many times before I start to wonder if you're running out of sites to show me.  And why do I keep winning the daily jackpot EVERY DAY? not that I'm complaining about that one.  But it's because I'm the only one left there isn't it?  Don't worry I've come up with a plan, I've begun signing up for any and all free websites that I come across there in hopes the people will return.

Your Number 1 Fan

And no I'm not joking when I say EVERY DAY

How to Maximize Hitlink Activity Points and Rank Top 25 in the Weekly Jackpot

   In this  article I'm going to be giving tips on increasing Hitlink Activity Points, without having to get referrals, so that more of you can get a piece of that jackpot.

Hitlink Activity Points

      Hitlink, for those that don't know, is a fairly popular traffic exchange website.  It also has a weekly jackpot that offers a huge amount of prizes.  I usually never gave any thought to the jackpot until last week.

Hitlink Activity Points
For reference, I'm the ridiculously handsome one that took 4th place last week, and it was not hard provided you follow the tips in this article. 

              That's when I noticed how easy it was to rank in the top 25 with no real effort.   If you look at that picture up there, that lack of effort got me 650 credits, 2 refferals and 78 cents. This means you either don't care about the jackpot, in which case why did click this link, or you aren't using simple strategies to optimize your points. So here we go. (Banner farm of the other Hitlink sites can be found here)

  • Sign up for the other traffic exchange sites that offer Hitlink points.  Almost every traffic exchange on the list offers between 2 and 5 jackpot points per site surfed! In fact if placing in the weekly jackpot is your main goal then I'd focus on surfing the other sites rather than Hitlink itself.
  • Sign up for the mailers that offer Hitlink points.  This is a huge one, these sites not only give between 5 and 25 points per mail read, they also give 1 point for every mail sent.
  • Log in to each site everyday, logging in once a day will give you points for each site logged in to.
  • Surf all the Hitlink activity point sites in one session. Most people surf about 12 sites per session, even if you surf 10 for an hour that's a huge amount of points.
  • Send out mail at the mailers, and use your promocodes.  Sign up for traffic codex if you haven't already because they offer exclusive promo codes for all these mailers.  each mailer allows you to send out 1000 mails at a time and paragonmailer and listprosper have a refresh option if you surf 25 pages at Hitlink. Meaning you can send out another 1000 mails immediately instead of having to wait 3 days.

They even offer promo codes for whatever Berry Gardens is.
    And that's pretty much it, you aren't going to win the jackpot with these tips, but you should place in the top 25.

ClickWorkers, Get Paid for Random Tasks online


    Need a site to earn easy money in your spare time? ClickWorkers(link, of the sacrilegious referral variety, here)  could be a good choice for you.  The site features online tasks available for its members to perform ranging from simple to complex.
    What I like about this site is that it isn't your standard offer wall type site, where half the offers you do don't credit.  This site gives out tasks that are strictly instruction based which means if you follow the instructions you get the cash, no guessing if you did the offer correctly.

You're a goddamned liar Lifescript!!

    Tasks have a wide range, from Googling terms and reporting back what result page you found it on to filming yourself doing everyday tasks like drinking from a straw or being angry.  The spectrum of paid tasks they give out kind of make me wonder what the hell the ClickWorker people are doing exactly but they aren't paying me to wonder so, meh. Seriously though they're aliens conducting research on us.
I for one welcome our alien overlords.


    Have old items you don't use anymore and need extra cash? Don't feel like waiting for an eBay payment to go through? VarageSale might be just what you need, it's a buying and selling service similar to Let Go.  VarageSale allows users to buy and sell locally, which gets money in your wallet quicker. It's quite convenient for selling heavy or bulky items as the need for shipping is eliminated.

Traffic Exchange Banner Collage

Here's an unfinished traffic exchange banner collage I'm working on using desygner, that app from the previous post, since we both know you didn't read it. Final goal? turn each one into a referral link. Want your referral link included on it? drop me a line here or on facebook.

Desygner: Top logo making app

I recently found an app called desygner.  My primary computer is my mobile device so I'm constantly looking for good photo editors.  I can safely say that desygner is probably one of the best apps I've found featuring dozens of layouts and functions it does everything I need it to. Definently an app to check out if you need a logo/banner creator for your mobile device.

Some screen shots of the layout types and premade templates offered. This is just a fraction of what they offer.
They also have a social aspect to their service, where you can upload your creations and follow and like other users of the app.

An Unorthodox Way of Generating Traffic to Your Website

   Generating traffic, how the hell?  Anyone that runs a blog or has some manner of program that they want eyeballs all over has asked this question at one point or another.  In fact I bet pretty much all of us have that question at some point.  Upon Binging this question we are bombarded by articles which provide us with answers to this question, and while many of these articles provide valuable information and tips to help answer that question, they also inevitably include the SAME. EXACT. METHODS. Almost always in a top 10 list form just in a different order.

"Please! It was a moment of weakness, I'm sorry!! I'll never suggest we use something besides Google as a research tool again. I swear it!"

    Now I'm not saying the tips most often found on these lists aren't solid advice, it's just, we don't need 25 pages of carbon copy Google results.  A lot of these lists include, generating fresh original content as a means to drive traffic to your website.  They type this with what seems like actual sincerity, no sense of irony whatsoever, as though they are truly unaware they're publishing the 500 millionth top ten list in existence.  Search engine optimization (SEO) and guest blogging always top the lists as well.

G/O Digital Marketing with the mic drop by the way
 What I'm saying is, I'm tired of seeing my Google search results populated with a never ending stream of articles saying the same thing only slightly different.
   This seems like the perfect segue for introducing the focal point of this post and to promote my upcoming article. So here goes, Subscribe to my blog to keep up to date with all my latest posts, pay special attention for my post this coming Wednesday "I Hate List Articles; Top 10 Reasons They Need to go Away."  But for now, please enjoy my post about a free/cheap method of advertising your website that you may not have thought of.

    While the legality of this is somewhat questionable there is no denying how powerful it is.  I can't say with 100 percent accuracy how much traffic I'm getting from this method via Google search, but it has to be a pretty sizable slice of the pie.....write your website url on money.  I have the benefit of living in a tourist destination but it works no matter where you live, after all ,that dollar bill with your url on it basically becomes a free advertising flier that gets passed around and no one will ever throw away.

I anticipate at least one of you bringing up, but that still doesn't change the fact that no one mentions this as a way of driving traffic to your own site.

Crowdsourced Searchable Database of leads for whatever you're looking for! Free!

Sorry to shout in all red but, people dont seem to be understanding what a powerful resource this is, One last rapid fire post before I'm off to surf through more pages than I care to remember, the clicking must go on folks. But here's a pretty decent lead generator.  It's a crowdsourced email database that's free to join and has search options so you can find the perfect leads for whatever you need.

We Bet You Can't

I'm always on the look out for money making opportunities online and will pretty much be down to try anything.  And when the tagline for your online money making opportunity is "Bar bets on steroids" that pretty much guarantees you're going to be getting a click from me.  Aside from some of the legal issues I can see this site running into, it's a kind of cool concept  (one of the nets for 25 usd is to advertise that you'll be a designated driver for a friday). But some of the other bets I see are insane, such as streak naked during a football game or get a random stranger to slap you out of anger (no cheating and just asking for a slap I guess).  Anyway in the interest of bringing money making opportunities to the readereaders here you go, and please do come back and let me know if you take any of the bets I'd love to hear it.


    Need no cost advertising for your website, blog or other social media platforms?  AdHipster might be a site to think about, it's basically a share exchange type platform, but it's free of charge and they discourage posting a bunch of random stuff and try to encourage sharing topics that you actually enjoy and would be appreciated by your followers.

Here's the ad I put up for this blog.



    The marketing experts over at kickstagram can jump start the monetization of any Instagram page with targeted interested users.  Check it out if your serious about gaining large scale exposure for your Instagram account.

Snappy Appy Pie

    Ok, so, stupid name but they let you make an app for free (paid options available) The creating of your app is pretty user friendly and relatively painless, unless you pay they don't allow you to edit your app, so make damn sure you've dotted all your T's and crossed all your I (I'm aware I got those mixed up but I don't feel like backspacing).  If you go check out my app you'll notice that the welcome screen for my app is blank, and since I didn't pay I can't edit it if I do decide to pay I can though, I just made my app as a trial run.  Anyway check my app out, I'm actually using it as a hub to log in to all my TE websites and it's pretty darn handy.

I need traffic, Misadventures in Online marketing

Misadventures In Online Marketing: TE jungle

    Previously on, In a bid to stave off the villainous 9-to-5 job, our hero Jaundice Kennedy looked to the internet for help, however the internet and its online earning opportunities failed him.  All hope was seemingly lost and our hero struggled through a 10 year long battle of epic proportions. This 10 year period would see high speed chases, daring rescues, the over throw of a brutal dictatorship, dragon slaying, a dance competition to save an after school program and a battle of wits between our hero and the most cunning serial killer this world has ever known.
    However, in the interest of time, we fast forward to present day where the protagonist, me, Jaundice Kennedy has valiantly spent all of his money five days before his next paycheck.
    So my story picks back up 10 years after the events of my last post (I glossed over that whole action packed 10 year period in between because I didn't want to bore you.) Anyway, I had largely forgot about earning anything resembling money online, however, a number of factors would cause me to revisit the subject.  The main factor being my negative bank account balance (Pro tip: If you ever want to talk to an actual human being at your bank and not an automated robot voice, just get your account balance below zero. They're surprisingly easy to get a hold of once that happens. In fact THEY call YOU!).

She's running out of patience because I kept pressing '9' to speak to an actual human through out our phone call.

    You see, I had gone out on a date and rather than just admit that I miiiight have slightly embellished my monetary worth, I dug my heels in and kept throwing cash around as though the amount of money I was spending didn't have me formulating possible ways to fake my own death.
    "Of course this dinner bill isn't going to be an issue, I've got it covered.  Only $250 dollars for that chicken nugget sized piece of fillet mignon and dollop of garlic mashed potatoes you ordered?!? What's a more flattering term for 'cheap date'? fiscally responsible date? But nevermind that, what say we cap off this evening with a private helicopter ride above the city skyline?"
    Finding yourself with a negative 7 dollar bank account makes bargain hunters out of even the most frivolous spenders among us and that was the boat I found myself in.  Ramen supplies were critically low, I had suffered casualties in the form of my netflix subscription and I was already having to resort to wearing some of the more questionable items in my wardrobe due to not being able to do laundry.

"What are you talking about? I always dress like this...alright look, it was either this or a shirt of Urkel with the words 'Did I do that? underneath.'"

   I actually made up a niece and some nonsense about her school doing a week long "Going Green" pledge drive, to explain why I was riding my bike to work instead of driving. I attended an amateur art exhibit because the promoter mentioned a free snack table and I even hit up my local library because I recalled there being a dish full of candy at the front desk.  That library trip was particularly awkward because I decided to pretend to be there to get information about library related topics, as I figured it would have been rude if I just parked my self at the front desk, silently stuffing my face with free candy.  The only problem was that I didn't realize how quickly I'd run out of decent questions to ask and so by about my 3rd question it was becoming increasingly apparent that I was just there to eat as much candy as I could before they kicked me out. (click here for a bonus sidenote question about librarians!!!).

"The Dewey decimal system is neither dewy nor does it utilize decimals in a traditional mathematical sense, so suck it lady!!"

    Basically what I'm saying is, I was hopelessly broke.  This caused me to recall my SwagBucks account which I hadn't logged into in awhile.  I was stoked to see I had almost 11k swagbucks saved up which was enough for a 100 dollar gift card.  However, they informed me that I wouldn't be getting it for around 5 business days.  This got me thinking about online earning possibilities again, so I decided to AskJeeves about it (All the electronics in my home began mocking me for thinking that was still relevant, so I switched to Google instead.)  In my search for ways to dig myself out of this situation I was shown an ad for the PTC site (that I mentioned in my previous post related to this one) Neobux. Upon seeing this my first thought was "@#$&!" followed by, "I wonder how much I could have earned if I had stuck with it?"  This inevitably caused me to look further into what advancements had been made in online money making.  Which lead me to decide to start a shameless website and blog stuffed with affiliate links, with little to no context or typed explanation about what these banners were.  For clarification sake, here is an example...

    I once again took to Google to figure out what my problem was when it came to building my downline, I ended up keying in on two problems I identified.  These problems were lack of worthwhile content on my webpage and lack of traffic flow to my site.  So I decided to tackle the content problem first, however after about 30 minutes I realized how hard it was to come up with decent, original content and gave up on that, instead turning my attention toward the other problem, lack of traffic flow.  This is how I ended up revisiting the world of traffic exchanges I had dabbled in so long ago.  This time around though, I was confronted with a totally different world from what I remembered, full of surf sessions, rotators, badges, surf networks and built in mini-games.

Actual footage of me after Googling traffic exchanges

     I was completely lost.  This was when I came up with an idea for an original content article.  I'd describe my experience trying to navigate this confusing world and get free traffic in the process.  At first I thought I'd sign up for a few traffic exchanges that were representative of the prevailing models at the time and talk about what I liked or didn't like about each and describe differences and features, but the act of even typing that sentence, just now, caused me to fall asleep midway through due to boredom.  Plus, while trying to find suitable representatives to sign up for, to feature in my article, I was absolutely assaulted with a never ending torrent of advertising campaigns persuading me to join the seemingly infinite tide of traffic exchange websites in existence and there was no way I could decide without feeling like the results of my article were influenced in some way.

Just in case my earlier example wasn't clear here are more affiliate links

     When I first decided to try out a few traffic exchanges, I wasn't aware that I'd have about 500 million options to wade through.  I eventually got frustrated and decided that if the traffic exchange industry was going to bombard me with offers, that I would bombard them with my pretty face.  So, with little preparation, forethought or training I charged head first into the army of traffic exchanges before me and started signing up to them all.  Knowing that I'd never sign up for them all, I came up with my current article idea....I would surf 100 traffic exchanges in a semi trackable way.  I'd start with one site, surfing for an hour, once that sites hour was up, I'd sign up for the next traffic exchange whose ad I was presented with, in a first come first served manner and surf that for an hour.  Rinse and repeat until I had reached membership in 100 traffic exchanges.
    Alright folks, real talk for a minute, I actually did do this as described, but any sort of focus in what I wanted to accomplish only started taking shape as I progressed through the 100 level website gauntlet.  The reason I say this is because I did make several observations which could be useful, but my initial lack of focus makes me wish I had come into this with a set of clearly defined stats to focus on.  What this means is that I'm having to do this again, with the benefit of hindsight, which isn't a bad thing, as I have a clear goal in mind now as opposed to just blindly surfing, but at the same time....surfing 100 traffic exchanges in 100 hours is brutal.

    Next time on, It's a classic clash between unmotivated underdog and marginalized industry juggernaut. Our hero gives the finger to Adsense and Google's indexing algorithms by bravely tackling traffic exchanges from a first person perspective.  But does our hero have what it takes to withstand the onslaught of the online marketing world.  Will our hero realize he has all but ignored his initial problem of being broke?  Or can he do what can't be done, and provide influencers in the niche with helpful insight from an industry outsider?
