The last gasp, the fat lady sings, it’s all over but the shoutin’.
This is the very last update to the Plus 1 Badge Hunt. It absolutely ends tonight at midnight EDT.
By any measure, it has been a success. 15,000 plus badges awarded. Multiple badges given away over 400 times. Literally thousands of new players exposed to the game.
I really expect a big rush to the finish on total badges. I just have the feeling that several CTP teams have ‘delayed’ claiming badges until the playoffs began.
I have some hard numbers on my badge, number 161. As of right this minute I have given away 176 badges that resulted in 108 NEW signups on my blog list. That is the absolute most ‘bang for the buck’ of any advertising I have done this year. And these are brand new subscribers to a list that has been around for several years.
Old friends like John Novak, Tony Tezak, William Miller, Jerry Ianucci, Andrew Stark and Renee Vorbach once again used the Plus 1 Badge Hunt to great success. Newer faces like Doug Roehrig, Kris Rogers, Leone Marziano, Susan Howarth, Thomas Sheets and Tim Hanson just clobbered this badge hunt.
It’s been a good run, for the hunters and the holders.
I’m guessing we will do it again sometime:)
I’m just sayin’
