The Bigfoot Badge Hunt has been a massive success and I, for one, am certainly sad to see him go.
During the two weeks he was with us, he gave away 13,144 badges, rewarded 14 lucky people with one million surprise XP and has given away 100,000 XP away randomly 985 times making that another 98,500,000 bonus XP he has given away.
There were 181 badges in the hunt and all but two badges were claimed, which is extraordinarily good going indeed.
However the final judges of a badge hunt are the people who took part and there was positive feedback from start to finish.
People reported making their money back on the very first day of contest and one member said it was the best promo they had ever taken part in.
Others chose to build lists, create downlines in their favorite programs, promote their own products and more. This is a diverse community and, as expected, people came up with diverse ways of giving away their badges.
Different people will have different things which stood out for them but some of the things which stood out for me about this promo were:
- William Miller for ordering more badges than anyone else and coming up with the best page I have ever seen for setting out exactly how to claim them.
- Tom Wacker for revealing that he spent more than two hours every day manually counting the number of badges that had been claimed each day.
- Bigfoot for persuading Tim to post the running total on CTP each day which came as a huge relief to Tom.
- Valentin Mavrodin for making a splash page which was an image of the badge hunt claim page…some people complained that it was a but sneaky but it worked and got him a lot of sign ups. I thought it was very clever indeed.
- Matt Badura who used one of his badges for a survey – I thought this was very interesting as gaining information is always useful.
- Similarly Virginia Herron gave away badges to promote her offline business – I particularly liked the idea of asking people to tweet out ways that she could improve her business.
- Walter Mulder for creating a “badge hunt within a badge hunt” – a number of Uber Surfers are also TE owners and they put a special Uber Surfer badge in rotation in their TE’s last week. Those who collected it also got one of the Bigfoot Badge Hunt badges too…clever.
- Tom and Sunny for keeping us all updated with their daily badge hunt blog…they never did get round to updating the temporary header but that is not important. It is the content that matters and the content was great.
- Ben Frazier and William Miller for getting the top three slots on the most claims for any single badge. Ben took first and third slots for most claims on a single badge and William came in second.
- LynnM and Russell Stockley for teaming up to make it super easy to collect badges with a bonus badge claim feature on Lynn’s weekend trivia show. Those who were there got a whole lot of easy badges that they might not otherwise have been able to claim.
- Everyone who tweeted about the contest using #Bigfoot Badge Hunt – this was a great way of keeping up to date with badge hunt news and a great way of promoting your own badges too.
- Greg R Worley who decided to trade a badge for an XP Battery. Nice idea, very simple and effective. Greg earned himself a very tidy stockpile of XP batteries this way.
- Pat vd Toorn – He simply asked people to make him an offer he could not refuse and awarded the badge on that basis. I would love to know what offers he actually received.
- Carl Davies and Adrian Gurgui – They both used the badge hunt to gain followers or likes on social media sites. Nice idea and can produce long-lasting results.
It was a fun two weeks and thanks to everybody for taking part.
