TylerCruz’s Affiliate Marketing Challenge!

It’s been a while since I ran a contest. In fact, I believe I’ve only run 2 in the past. I don’t run many contests because I like to come up with unique and fun ideas for when I do run them. I also want to make them bigger and better each time.

Here then, is my latest contest. I’ve partnered up with my good friends from MarketLeverage to be able to launch this contest, and I hope it goes well so that I can run more in the future. There are absolutely fantastic prizes up for grabs, and to be honest I’m quite jealous of you guys as I want to participate myself! 

I’m proud to present my Affiliate Marketing Challenge!

Overview

The Tyler Cruz Affiliate Marketing Challenge runs from June 11th to July 11th (midnight Pacific, 3:00am Eastern time) and you are welcome to register anytime inbetween. However the earlier you register, the more time you have to start making some dough, so the sooner the better!

The process of the challenge is simple: publishers register to MarketLeverage under my referral link and then start to make as much money as they can. When the challenge ends on July 11th, the top 4 earners will each receive a corresponding prize.

The challenge only tracks participant’s income during the contest timeline, so nobody has a head start.

How to Participate

  1. Sign up to MarketLeverage by clicking here. It is important that you register under my referral link so that I can track your commissions. If you’ve already registered there previously, you are not eligible unfortunately as I cannot track you.
  2. Earn as much as you can!
  3. That’s it! At the end of the challenge, if you generated one of the top-4 amounts in commission, you win one of the four prizes!

Prizes

1st Place: 8GB iPod Touch

Talk about a classy first place prize. Win the Affiliate Marketing Challenge and it’s yours. More details can be found on Apple’s iPod Touch page.

2nd Place: Mino Flip Video Camera

235

I am truly jealous of this prize. The Mino Flip is the latest line of Flip Video cameras. It is smaller, better, and simply overall sexier than both the original Flip and the Ultra.

In addition to being smaller and having new features such as pause/fast forward/rewind buttons, it also sports a rechargeable lithium ion battery (compared to the double AA batteries the original Flip and Flip Ultra use). More details can be found on TheFlip’s website.

3rd Place: $200 Market Leverage Rewards Amex Card

Let’s be honest: cold, hard, cash is one of the best prizes you could ask for. This American Express/Market Leverage Rewards card is prepaid with $200 and can be used just like any other credit card, only it is prepaid and can be thrown away when emptied.

So, what will you spend your $200 on? I suggest spending some of it on a nice dinner out to celebrate your 3rd place finish!

4th Place: 2.0GB USB Pen

MarketLeverage was kind enough to send me one of these pens. Act out your favourite spy character from your favourite spy movie with this high-tech pen. It’s a fully-functioning pen, which, when unscrewed, unveils the USB connector from inside.

With a storage capacity of 2.0 gigabytes, this pen can hold a huge amount of data on it for quick and easy data transfers.

More Information

I will be making regular posts (and/or keep an updated list on the right column of my blog) updating the current rankings and revenue earned so that you can check your ranking and see how you’re doing in comparison to others.

Don’t worry, your name will never be used on the site. I don’t even have access to it if I wanted to (MarketLeverage can still ship the winner’s prizes as they have access to it).

I strongly urge everyone to participate in this challenge. A lot of people may see this challenge and think to themselves “Too much effort” or “I don’t make very much… I won’t win”. Well, not with that attitude you won’t.

Look at this way: there are absolutely no minimum earning restrictions in order to be eligible for a prize. If the top earning participant earns $14.50, 2nd place, $11.23, and 3rd place $6.42, you might have only made $1.62 but would still win 4th place!

And, of course, you’ll keep all your profits you generated from MarketLeverage.

I look forward to seeing how this challenge progresses and hope to see a lot of you participate.

Good Luck!

    I’ve registered in hopes of some better luck with MarketLeverage for Affiliate Marketing.

    Are you planning on giving any tips over the next month as to how to convert a first sale? I have had AM accounts and yet to convert a first sale myself :(

    • Tyler Cruz says:

      I’m a complete PPC affiliate marketing newbie myself, so any tips or advice I do give should have that taken into consideration.

      However, being a complete newbie is allowing me to learn a ton of things that I will be able to share and hopefully help other newbies.

      Stay tuned for some affiliate marketing posts by me soon.

  2. I already signed up with them last month. :(

  3. Harmony says:

    I signed up, Tyler. I am interested to see what sponsors they have. Still waiting to be accepted, though. Do they call us? Or do they usually contact us via e-mail?

  4. XLOR says:

    Ok, I think we must try it.
    Anyway, my congrads with your programm to you, man!

  5. XLOR says:

    Hm, I am surprised. I see 1617 RSS readers, but I thought there were for about 1200 or smth like this readers not so long ago. Am I wrong or you really did such a fantastic jump?

  6. Crazykinux says:

    Hey Tyler,

    There seems to be a problem with the link in the “How to participate” section. The ‘here’ link (http://www.marketleverage.com/go/marketleverage) points to a “404 Not Found” error page.

    Just thought you’d want to correct that!

  7. Looks like fun and a smart way to get sign ups bro. I will join up later today and giver as I want the flip!

  8. This blows! We already signed up last month, as did every serious affiliate marketer out there.. Considering ML is part of this contest, you’d think they’d be able to track our earnings if you just gave them our e-mail addresses.

  9. Just completed my registration, now time to wait for an acceptance or approval, then its off to the races. The prizes offered a pretty sweet, nice way to attract new signups!

  10. Adnan says:

    Yeah I agree with Zander – it’s a bit annoying how this challenge is only available to people who havn’t signed up yet. I’ve signed up, but havn’t been confirmed yet (I need to ring them), so I’ll try and get put under your affiliate link.

    Hello Everybody,

    I’m Mike Kelly, a Publisher Manager with MarketLeverage. It’s great to see so many publishers wanting to participate, whether you are a new to MarketLeverage or have already registered with our network. I would like to express our gratitude, and I am working on offering a second contest for TylerCruz readers already using MarketLeverage. Thank you for your interest and candid feedback.

    Another person here that gets left out because I already registered with them in the past. Can’t be that many affiliates left that haven’t signed up with them with all the pimping they have been doing the last couple months lol.

    Although you, Tyler, will probably make more this way because of the referral commissions with the new signups, Market Leverage won’t get as much participation from those that are already with them and may have a bit more traffic pulling power.

  17. Mike Huang says:

    Dang it…why must you and John bust out these contests :) Who to choose from!?!

  21. Joey Logano says:

    All you guys that said that you have already registered for Market leverage need to read the one comment left by a market leverage official, he said “I would like to express our gratitude, and I am working on offering a second contest for TylerCruz readers already using MarketLeverage. Thank you for your interest and candid feedback.”

    I guess you’re not reading all the comments ;)
