Why Badge Hunts Are So Awesome

If I was to write a post listing all the reasons why TimTech badge hunts are so great then I would be at my computer for a very long time today.

So, as we enter the final day of the first week, I will just give you one reason.

While looking at Twitter a few moments ago I came across this tweet from Jon…

badge hunt gets results tweet

So in six days Lynn brings in more than 260 new subscribers across three lists, signs up almost 200 new members AND generates $100 in sales.

Any one of those wins would be a great result but all three shows the power of badge hunts and shows just what can be achieved when these types of promotions are taken seriously as tools to boost an online business.

Is this result typical…well I don’t know but I certainly would not be surprised if others had obtained similar results from this badge hunt which has still got just over a week to run.

If you want to share your results so far then please feel free to do so in the comments below.

For now though, very well done to Lynn and well done to everyone who has taken part in this badge hunt…this is certainly one very strong and vibrant community.

    Hey, way cool, thanks! I would expect my sales for the week to be somewhat below average compared to some other badge holders, but I’m cool with that.

    I’m super thrilled with the new subscriber total, especially since 2 of the 3 lists were not new and had a lot of subscribers already – it was a really big surprise that those two lists gained as many new subscribers as they did the past week.

    I do know of another badge holder who had a pretty small list to begin with that gained 100 new subscribers last week – and it was the first time they’d had a badge hunt badge – super awesome results there.

    Anyone with a list or blog should get a badge every hunt IMO – the ROI is just huge (especially if it’s a new list)!

    This is my second badge hunt and I already know the power of the hunt. So this time I wanted to use it to encourage new members into my TEs and especially my brand new 1 week old TE. It’s hard to say what one promo or action has done the most, but the “baby” has grown 3 times as fast as my first two. Surfing has been great everyday. Helping me deliver great traffic.

    The most fun has been using the Hunt to encourage Twitter followers and Google+ followers. It has really brought home the power of the Tweet and so far has gained me 160 new followers from within the CTP community.
    Thanks everybody for your continued tweets.

  3. So far I am very happy. For my first badge they must sign up for free to a 3 day free review account. So far 25 folks have done this. To get my second badge they must upgrade for 1 year $19.00. I thought during the badge hunt if I broke even during the entire hunt I would be happy.

    To my surprise I have already more than broken even as of Friday the 5th.

    Getting my name out there was my main goal, but now with 7 days left in the hunt my goals are even higher.

    This also my second badge hunt and that one as well I did better than I had planned on as well

    I hope all are having as much fun with the hunt as I am.

  4. When I planned for the Badge Hunt campaign, I had in mind two sets of targets for my badges. One set was minimal, but if not met, I would have considered the entire promotion a failure.

    Fortunately, this set of targets have been met for both of my badges. In fact, I almost met this target for my first badge during the first day of the hunt!

    The second set of targets are more ambitious, but nothing unachievable. Practically almost hit the target for the first badge, but I’m expecting more since I’ve set the targets before I decided to include start pages promotion in the campaign. Second badge is a little behind at this one, but I’m confident the target will be hit there too.

    Besides that, I’ve collected a lot of information (and that’s not over yet) that should help me run better campaigns in the future.

    All in all, Badge Hunt offers a great flexibility and opportunity to connect the badge to virtually any task your imagination can conceive. That, plus the expectation created by a yearly event, plus prizes = success!

    Certainly great results.

  6. The Badge Hunt is always a great compliment to site owners and list builders alike. It always brings good results, It introduces CTP Members and new members to sites and people, It is a great vehicle for letting people know who you are and it is a great addition to site owners to value add features for their membership.
    The Community that revolves around the TE Industry is a very strong community and the Badge Hunts make them stronger
