Motive’s March Madness Competition

March 6, 2009 Posted by Tyler Cruz

MotiveInteractive is running a big competition on PublisherChallenge during the month of March.

I won’t provide all the details of the contest here as they can be found on PublisherChallenge, but I thought I’d share the basics of the competition here as well as give an update on the current standings.

This competition actually has the highest guaranteed Main Category prize pool of any prior competition with $2,000 up for grabs. As usual, there is no minimum prerequisite required to compete in the Main Category.

The competition runs from March 1st, 2009 (12:00AM Eastern time) to March 31st, 2009 (11:59PM Eastern time).

The process of the competition is simple: publishers register to MotiveInteractive through PublisherChallenge and then proceed to make as much money as they can until competition ends on March 31st, 2009.

The Standings

Below are the current standings as of March 6th, 4:54 AM EST. For live (calculated every 20-minutes) information, visit Motive’s Full Standings page on PublisherChallenge.1

MOTIVE495728 came in on the 2nd day to start kicking ass, generating over $900 in 24-hours! Yesterday, he halted his campaign. I know who this affiliate is, but he wishes to remain nameless which is why he isn’t claiming his account on the site.

I think he halted his campaign because he needs a better payout on the offer he’s running. I am currently working with Motive and might take a cut on my side in order to give him a better payout so he can continue with his campaign(s).

In second place we have Scarborough who has generated $241 so far. While he’s a fair ways behind 1st place, he did generated $105 yesterday so if he can continue at this pace, or preferably increase it, he will have a good chance at taking 1st place and winning himself a brand new MacBook. That is, if MOTIVE495728 doesn’t get back into the race.2

There are currently 7 contestants who are actively generating commissions in this competition. And while that is pretty good 6-days in, there is plenty of opportunity to join in and win yourself something nice.

I know this is obviously easy for me to say since it’s in my best interest to encourage participating in the competition, but I really wish I could compete in these contests. I don’t make a whole lot with affiliate marketing but think I could take 1st or 2nd. I’d simply move over my existing campaigns over to MotiveInteractive which wouldn’t take too long.

We’re only 6 days in with 25 full days left so if you haven’t joined yet you should. Again, this competition has the largest Main Prize category that I’ve run, and has no minimum prerequisites required. 5th place is currently at $7.50, and the 5th place prize is a Flip Mino, so you do the math on that :-)

  1. Scarborough says:

    Scarborough is the area that forms the eastern part of the City of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was named by Elizabeth Simcoe in 1796 who was inspired by the Scarborough Bluffs which reminded her of the white cliffs near her home in England. Initially a collection of rural villages it has grown to become a diverse urban community. Over a period of 200 years it grew from a township to a city, but has been part of the East District of Toronto since 1998. The Scarborough name is still used by local residents, and is recognised by Canada Post as a municipality name.

    Wow I can’t wait to get in on this one. I hope too many people don’t find out about it.

    But that is probably just not possible.

    It’d be really sweet to win that trip to Vegas. I wonder if anyone is going to win it. Would be nice to.

  9. Bidet says:

    Wow those prizes are great as usual, that trip to vegas would be a nice vacation.

  10. Those are some awesome prizes. Do you know if it’s too late to start. A friend just told me about your website so I was checking it out. Heading over to Motive now to read up and see if I can get in on the action… Starting late but maybe I can do some quick catching up!

    Thanks again!

    • Tyler Cruz says:

      Nope, it’s certainly not too late. You still have 20 days left to compete. While it may be difficult to catch up to 1st or 2nd place, you definitely have a good chance of placing 3rd-5th.

      If you register fast you might be able to get all set up by later today to start bringing in commissions :-)

    I think I have finished at 4th place :) Well, it is already around 12:35 PM EST 31 March but strangely publisherchallenge website continues to write that one day remains in the competition !

  12. muratos says:

    Well, I have miscalculated the time. Publisherchallenge works correctly. Still 8 hours to go :)

  13. Tyler Cruz says:

    Part of the reason was so that I wouldn’t have to make so many Affiliate Marketing Competition posts here, but the main point was to create a system that would automate the process of updating the rankings as well as provide more features for participants.

    Maybe if you paid me a monthly membership fee to read my blog I might stop posting them here. Otherwise, it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want. If you don’t like it, nobody is forcing you to read these posts.
