Good question Leslie Jenkins. It will help many people who have never organized contest yet.

CONTEST is the best way to attract the PSA and CSA and remain them active.
As per my point of view Tcredits or Affiliate reassignment or Gift certificate, any one is the best way to attract your Affiliates.

What is essential part of contest is " You must get them know the IMPORTANCE of your Contest prize"

Let them know about IMPORTANCE of your contest prize

Hi Everyone,

Although I have not yet set any contest for my team members, but i have discussed about this with few of my PSA's .

I came to the conclusion , every members need just two things.

1: PSA's

2: T credits

So a contest with prizes of huge Reassignment or a good quantity of T credits ,attracts the member's most and most of them get into the contest.

Hello.. I want you to have in mind that Tcredit are very essential to get MRP by bidding it in auction also to purchase e-books and getting 25VP for review. But in at SFI i do not think you are allowed to transfer above 10 TC to person so it is wise that you can include a Gift certificate which is also a good prize as it can help your affiliates to purchase their desired stuff from Tripeclicks.

I think it depends on the response you want.

I started my "EA 4 a year" quarterly contest about 3 years ago to try and encourage a longer term commitment from my team. Too many people quit too soon without giving their business time to develop.

The way the contest works is you earn 1 entry for each month of the quarter you are an EA (up to 3 per quarter). The prize is $30.00 (GC) a month for the next 12 months (if you fail to reach EA remaining months are forfeited).

In my experience affiliates respond best to contests where the prize is "PSAs added to your downline" - and the more PSAs you promise the better the response you will get.

I have never create a contest. I plan to do that next year. I am collecting tc points and mrp. I am sure that is needed by all affiliate. By that, they can buy something in tripleclicks and they will got 25 vp after rating that products. And it will totally help them to keep their status.

Good question;
I have been running contests for the last few months. I have been setting them up something like this.

My most recent contest goes like this.

The first 5 to make EA status will get a $10 gift certificate and the next 5 will receive 10 TCredits.

You of course can vary your own requirements and prizes as you see fit, but I have seen much more action from my downline since I started running contests.

I think the incentive to win something

Very important and Good question indeed.
Contests are one of the best ways to keep your team members working, and also helps to activate the inactive members.
Contests are a great help in encouraging our PSAs and CSAs.
I kept a contest last month.
The rewards were Tcredits and/or Reassignments.
Those members who are good with maintaining their own rank levels but not good with sponsoring, are more interested in reassignments.
Those members who are good at sponsoring

I haven't done or organized any contests yet, but I believe that contests that does not require Affiliates to spend any cash or any other virtual cash such as (MRPs or TCredits) would attract Affiliates more. For example; (Signing in new ECAs, or attract new clients to TripleClicks Auctions and PriceBenders). So, if Affiliates, or some of them were successful to get such prospects, the'll be gaining VPs and cash.
I myself recommend suchh contests.

Its a nice question because contests are really required to build a good and "ACTIVE" team.
Based on my own experience,here are my points:-

1. Tcredits are the best aoption for the contest.But you must have to tell them the importance and use of tcredits.

2. Reassignment of psa's are also good for any contest but it is important that you must give some active psa's to them unless they will not show intrest whenever you again put a contest.

3.Gift certificate
