How I Win Major Affiliate Contests

Recently, I competed in an affiliate contest, where I won a brand new Macbook Air. In the contest, over $140,000 in commissions were paid out to partners who promoted, and the first place took a $15,000 cash prize. I didn’t win that, but a Mac Air is still very nice!

In the past two months, I’ve won over $10,000 of prizes from affiliate contests, and this doesn’t include the commission I made from selling the product! If you’ve ever competed in one of these things, you’re probably wondering how to get more sales.

Let me tell you.

Winning $10,000

In 2013, most of your prospects in IM know that you’re an affiliate who’s gonna get a commission if they buy from you. And, they know there’s hundreds of others they can buy from. So, the question they ask, is “why should I choose to buy from you?”

If you can’t answer that… then, you’re going to have a tough time making the top 10 partners in the big contests. In other words, you’ve got to add value – a bonus – if people choose to buy through your affiliate link.

This is called the ‘Affiliate Bonus Domination’ method, and, you can learn about it on an upcoming webinar: Seating is limited so register now.

    Congratulations John with your price, it’s about people trusting that the products you promote are good and not crap,Building good customer service. Afilliate marketers that sold me a winning product,I would always be intrested in the products they promote as I would trust their opinion.

    As someone who competes in some of those same promotion contests and shares positions on the leaderboards against John, I’ll say he is a more-than-formidable opponent! Lol…

    Whatever he is doing, must be working. 😉

    Yes, I’ll agree that it’s all about adding big time value. See you around John!

    ‘Affiliate Bonus Domination’ is definitely new to me.. but the question remains that such method might be more applicable to seasoned affiliate marketers like yourself who have earned enough to throw in such attractive bonuses i.e. it might not be feasible for the new affiliate marketers.

    What is your view on this?

  6. Hi John,
    First, congratulation on your win. I think Mac is great.

    I completely agree with you. My email box is full of competing offers. The affiliate business is getting tougher and tougher all the time.

    I also believe though that if you nurture your list you will develop loyal customers who will still buy from you even if you don’t offer bonuses.

    Best of luck,

    Great job dude! Affiliate marketing is off the hook. Having a large list to promote to is key for sure. It’s building the list that is the process. Great article John. Have a good one.

  8. Congratulations to the price, you are a great champion affiliate so you will probably win several awards this year.

    when in doubt – differentiate – another corner stone of business :-)

  13. The webinar’s content is slow and also from last year. Do not waste your time.

  14. Congrats on winning! Been in a few contests myself and I have done pretty well but always seems to be that one person that seems to jump out of no where. Adding value to beat out your competitions links is well worth it and people begin waiting and even asking you for your affiliate link before they join via someone elses email some times.
