Zac Johnson’s Motive Interactive Promotion – Win Big Prizes Without the Tough Competition

January 10, 2009 - Written by Gyutae Park  

Affiliate marketing networks are having great success promoting themselves and attracting new affiliates by running performance-based contests. The networks team up with high-profile bloggers in the industry and leverage their readerships and reputations to offer some sweet incentives and prizes to new affiliates. For example, Tyler Cruz has already run 6 affiliate marketing challenges with Market Leverage and there are even more to come.

This method of promotion is highly effective because everyone involved stands to gain from it. The affiliate network gets exposure from popular bloggers and gains new affiliates to promote their offers, bloggers make easy referral commissions (Tyler made $2,500 from ML referrals last month), and contest participants win prizes in addition to their affiliate revenue. It’s a great idea that I think we’ll see used more frequently in 2009.

The most recent team to implement this strategy includes Zac Johnson and Motive Interactive. As you may know, Zac is a prominent blogger in the affiliate marketing industry and is speaking at Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas this week. Motive Interactive on the other hand is an up and coming affiliate network that features a new easy to use interface and exclusive offers.

Motive is running a pretty big promotion to kick off the new year. All new affiliates that sign up through Zac’s blog are eligible to win the following prizes.


The Prizes

TITANIUM TIER: $300,000 Commissions Earned
Reward: A New Smart Car ($11,990 Value)

PLATINUM TIER: $90,000 Commissions Earned
Reward: VIP Las Vegas Vacation
1st Class Air, Stay at the Wynn for 2 nights , $500 Cash

GOLD TIER: $10,000 Commissions Earned
Reward: 32 GB iPod Touch with $500 iTunes Gift Card

SILVER TIER: $1,000 Commissions Earned
Reward: XBox 360 Elite Package

What makes this contest unique is that it is performance-based but is not really a competition with other affiliates. Everyone who reaches the commission threshold will receive the rewards. For example, if there are 10 people who make $300,000 in commissions, they will all receive the Smart Car. Pretty sweet deal.

The promotion only lasts until January 31 so definitely go over to Zac’s blog and get started now. Even if you earn just $1,000 in commissions and break even, you’ll be up an XBox 360 at the end of the month.
