Newbie Affiliate Challenge

So you’ve all probably heard about the Top Affiliate Challenge. Personally, I don’t know anything about it beyond what I’ve heard on Wickedfire, and the dominant opinion seems to be that it sucks and is uninteresting. So, I’ve decided to do something more interesting.

I’ve been thinking about having some sort of contest on this site. The idea came to me the other day when I found you could get $250 in Facebook advertising for free. That reminded me that you can also get around $100 or so for free with Microsoft Adcenter, and another $50 with Yahoo search marketing. That got me thinking: How much could someone make using only free advertising coupons? I’m seriously interested in finding out.

So, yeah. I’d like to have month-long contest. I’ll obviously have to dig up all of those coupon codes, but that shouldn’t be too difficult. The only problem I’m seeing right now is prizes. I’m really not in a position to be throwing around XBox 360s and Amazon gift certificates. If anybody out there would like to help sponsor my contest, let me know. I can promise a bunch of free backlinks (the rules would require entrants to post a complete list of prizes on their site, which includes a backlink to your site).

If there’s enough interest (and sponsors), I’ll work out the specific rules soon.

Edit: When I said ‘help sponsor the contest’, I didn’t mean gift cards and game consoles only.  If you’d like to donate an ad spot on your site, or $5 via paypal, that’d be appreciated just as much.

    Run the freecollegescholarships.net offer. It converts super well on fb if you get the targeting down right.
