OK so the biggest badge hunt in the history of CTP badge hunts begins in just a few short hours from now…so if you are hosting a badge you must ensure that your clues are up and running as soon as possible.
Every time we have a badge hunt some people forget to leave a clue at all or wait until near the end of the contest to make theirs live.
I don’t understand the mentality of this approach…you want as many people claiming your badges as possible.
The idea is to maximize your conversions…you want people to take some specific action or actions in return for getting a badge from you.
This could be sharing, liking or viewing a YouTube video (RocketResponder), joining or upgrading in a program (multiple sites) or well, virtually anything you like.
You can have fun with your clues if you want…for example it seems that Boris has had a bit of fun with this clue…
Here Boris wants you to subscribe to any of his lists for information about how to claim the badge…unless your name is Valentin where you have to work quite a bit harder.
This made me laugh.
I think it is a reference to the really cool splash page Val made for the last badge hunt…the one that looked like an actual claim page but wasn’t one. Remember this one?
So with the badge hunt about to start…get your clues out there and the sooner the better.
