Two weeks ago I blogged (Prezzybox with the easiest affiliate competition!) about the pretty brilliant incentive that was on offer from Prezzybox, that was open for literally anyone to enter and that Zak posted on the a4Uforum.
All you had to do to win a weeks ski/snowboarding holiday with Prezzybox was tell them how you could improve your promotion of them this year. That was it, very simple and with 2 places available for anyone who really wanted to go then there was plenty of scope to get yourself on the trip.
Unfortunately I couldn’t enter as I’m already going away snowboarding on Sunday myself but I spoke to Zak anyway to find out where they have decided to take their lucky affiliates tomorrow and he told me they are off to Austria which should be pretty cool (as in wicked and not cold, although it will be cold too)!
The conversation went on and it turns out that only 3 (yes THREE) people emailed in to enter, one of the entrants subsequently emailed to say they couldn’t make the dates and so the 2 places of the FREE HOLIDAY went to the other 2 affiliates who could be bothered to email in, making one of the easiest to enter free holiday for affiliates even easier!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of a holiday being won so easily before and surely there must be plenty of affiliates out there now who are kicking themselves for not entering, I know just 5 minutes of creative thinking could well have seen you packing your bags tomorrow for a week on the pis(te)!
Prezzybox go above and beyond many other affiliates programmes to offer the best incentives to affiliates and I bet they must feel totally flat over this one, let’s just hope this doesn’t curb Zaks enthusiasm too much and the next incentive they get inundated (well unless it’s another snow related one and I can enter then please make it as easy next time for me)
I just hope it works out well and the 2 lucky affiliates who won the free holidays go on and make loads of money for Prezzybox and themselves
This is a great example of how affiliate incentives and competitions are not always only available for the big and established affiliates, you could of been a total newbie to gadgets and gifts and won a brilliant holiday!
There is two reason I thought I’d have a look at this post on the forum:
1. I’m a snowboarder and I thought I fancied a piece of the action.
2. Zak (Prezzybox) is someone who I want to get working with much closer. Many UK affiliates will know of Zak, he is widely known as one of the best affiliate managers out there and comes from a similar mold as Graham Keen (Buyagift) who I have worked closely with for quite a few years and have been treated above and beyond any other affiliate programme I have promoted.
I have in the past dabbled but never achieved much on Prezzybox (my doing through not putting enough effort in) despite loads of offers of help and encouragement from Zak.
So with these 2 points in mind I had a look at the incentive on offer. There is Two 1 week skiing trips on offer to go with Prezzybox on the 14th March for a week when they take the winners of the Christmas Incentive away, the best bit was just how easy a competition this one looks to win and it is really open to anyone, all you need to do is email in and say how you plan to promote Prezzybox throughout the next year, the bigger and better the idea will win the holidays.
- Email Ben on ben @ prezzybox.com with the Subject “take me skiing”
- Tell Ben how you propose to promote Prezzybox.com this year. the more exposure you are willing to give Prezzybox, and the more elaborate your ideas, the more likely Ben is to pick you as one of the prize winners. Your name will then go into the hat.
I am actually personally pretty gutted because the week that Zak is taking everyone away is the week that I am already heading off myself snowboarding so as much as I want to win my place (and trust me I would have pulled out the stops to win myself a place) unfortunately I can’t enter!
So, for anyone who wants to get on what is likely to be an absolutely brilliant week, have a think how you can get Prezzybox integrated into your sites and how you can promote them throughouth the year. They provide a brilliant set of creative, Vidiboxes, content units, interactive gift wizards that you can view here
