Plus 1 Badge Hunt has this update and one more and then it is done! It’s almost the end and still there is a certain frenzy at the badges. I really think there is some serious badge collection to be done. Why?
Because CTP teams season 3 ended at midnight. The playoffs for season 3 begin at midnight tonight (Monday). How many savvy teams have qualified for badges and not collected them? I’ll bet there are way more than a few in this category and that we will see a big uptick in badges awarded on the first day of the playoffs.
Which isn’t to say that the Plus 1 Badge Hunt hasn’t been a roaring success so far. It has seen very near 14,000 badges awarded already, and more than 36 hours to go.
Remember that there are 75 people that are jockeying for position and the possibility for a prize. I expect that list to change significantly before the end.
I always like to see what successful people do, and to pattern my business after them. One of the very successful people in our sphere is Eric Goettman. His 5 badges have two that are ‘sign up’ badges for business’ that Eric owns. The other 3 are simple ‘buy anything from XXX site’ badges.
It just doesn’t hurt to ask people for a sale. Eric has good TEs and with the 3 sale badges he gives you and I an incentive to purchase credits at his sites. The nugget? Don’t be afraid to ask your customers to buy.
I sweet guarantee that you will make way more money if you actually ask people to buy.
I’m just sayin’
