Have you ever ran a contest in order to gain more clients?
I was thinking about this for a while now so I figured the best thing to get an idea would be to bring it here
I want to run a contest for affiliates to see who can bring in the most sales over a 7, 14, 21 or 30 day period. At the end of the time limit I would declare a winner and they would get paid a certain amount I chose in the beginning.
Now the affiliates would obviously get to keep the profits they make during the contest because that would just be unethical to let them generate sales for me and I keep the money they are entitled to as an affiliate lol
I was also thinking of picking multiple winners, but not the first, second, and third place winners. I would have different categories that people can win in like "Most sales over 30 days" and "Most profit over 30 days". Doing this would allow people to still have a chance to win if they had 500 sign ups buy $10 items compared to the super affiliate who gets 2 sign ups who spend $2,500 a piece.
What other categories could I add for this? I wouldn't want to add anytihng that would revolve around them sending traffic because that can be gamed pretty easily. I don't want people who have access to millions of points in a traffic exchange to have a chance at the winning prize because that's not quality traffic and rarely ends up in a sale. I would want people who are actually busting their @$$ to get sales be the winners
What do you guys and girls think? Is there anything else I could add to the contest so more people would come in and try to be the top dog?
