Affiliate Marketing – Learn From The Pro

It has been a known promotional technique to hold contests for generating extra traffic to the website. If you offer nice bonus to the winner usually word will spread up quickly and spike in activity is almost guaranteed. There are probably hundreds of different contests going on all over the web but I could not leave one specific contest unnoticed: John Chow is holding contest on his blog for new Market Leverage affiliates.

What is so different about this contest? As many probably know, John Chow is one of the top well know internet marketers and his money making blog gets thousands of visitors daily. According to his own words monthly revenues he generates from the blog are ranging from 25 to 40+ thousands dollars. And here is an example why…

Checking out his blog today I came across the announcement about John Chow Market Leverage Affiliate Challenge. The rules are simple – you have to sign up as a new affiliate with Market Leverage through the link provided and make as much money as you can from this program in the month of August. Top earner will get sparkling new iPod Touch and a $200 ML American Express Reward Card. In addition first 10 new affiliates who generates $10 in commissions will get a bonus – 2GB USB flash pen.

Lets analyze for a second what is so interesting about this contest and why John Chow is a very smart marketer and his blog is making so much money…

First of all to participate in the contest you have to be NEW affiliate of Market Leverage and sign up through provided link. John explains that as necessary step to track standings of contest participants… In reality – Market Leverage is a two-tier affiliate network and for every referral John will get paid life-time 5% commission of those new publishers earnings.

Now John is awarding his prise to the affiliate who actually makes most money for HIM. With his popularity I have no doubts there will be at least few hundreds new sign ups with Market Leverage network. Yes, he may have to spend little bit money on the prise (that I seriously doubt) but in the long run even if small part of those new affiliates will continue earn money – they will be earning for him

John also didn’t forget to capitalize on the existing affiliates. This time is not for share of earnings but for advertising and traffic… Who is not qualified to participate in the main challenge have a chance to win Flip camera ruffle. For single entry – just comment on the affiliate challenge post and get 5 bonus entries if write an article about his contest (of course with a back link to JohnChow.com and Market Leverage). Do you think few hundreds (if not thousands) related content links and returning visitors commenting on the blog worth the price of Flip Mino? And I am not even talking about all those new RSS subscribers who will want to follow the progress of both challenges just in case they win…

I am 99% sure for running this huge promotional campaign which for sure will bring huge amount of new affiliates, Market Leverage will reward John in some way in addition to the potential life-time share of earnings from subaffiliates.

What conclusion can we make from the John Chow Market Leverage Affiliate Challenge?

The biggest money are made NOT by promoting individual products, but by recruiting an army of other affiliate marketers to do promotion and than share theirs profits with you. The hardest part is motivating people to earn more money (for you)…

    When I first ran across his contest, I did not really read the details so much. I saw what he was doing to signup affiliates, and wondered who would bite. About an hour after leaving his site it really struck me how successful this might be for him. It might cost him a few bucks up front, but if he gets even a couple very successful affiliates out of this, he will just add another nice layer to his passive income stream.

    Leverage of any kind whether its human or software is good for business growth. Though John is losing some money in the form of commissions it will help him to build his reputation and social proof.
