Feb_Frenzy_2018-3

YO Affiliates!
February is here and we are starting 2018 with a bang!
This is your chance to kick start the year and set yourself up for an even bigger and better 2018 as an Envato affiliate partner. All affiliates welcome to register and if you haven’t yet made an affiliate referral, February would be a great time to start.

Competition Format:
Once again we are splitting affiliates into leagues based on their January 2018 new deposit count with a share of $15,000 up for grabs with 2 prizes on offer per league. One prize for highest Month-over-Month growth by actual new deposits and a second prize for highest Month-over-Month growth by 10%.

Head over to the competition page for full details and register!

Best of luck!
Emile
Envato Affiliates team

Hello emile_b
I am new here, the result of the Feb, 2018, I am work hard for it, but why this competition only for Deposits?
Thank you so much.

Clickthroughs Registered Deposits Earnings Avg Earnings!

I would imagine this is because affiliates are based on:

  • earning a % of the first purchase of envato credits or an item
  • on the user having not visited envato sites previously

Your graph shows that you did a great job of bringing people in, however, we don’t know if they were first-time visitors, PLUS it also shows that no one deposited funds which would be a requirement for earning.

Well Envato earn money from deposits, they don’t earn anything just from clickthroughs. So a $15,000 outlay on prizes would be much better spent on something that earns them money, rather than something that doesn’t.


#5

Your right, I will keep going on it.


#6

You are right, but I refer a lot of potential customers to this site, this is a business community.

If at the end of the Feb, 2018, I can join this part of the contest ?

If you’ve not referred anybody (who made a deposit) in January, then you’re eligible for that part of the contest during February. But there’s a 30 deposit minimum, so it’s unlikely you’ll meet that by the end of the month.

if they run the same contest next month, and you don;t have any deposits this month, then you’ll be eligible for the same prize next month. But they don;t run affiliate competitions every month, and the prizes/winning requirements often change.

I appreciate that you may be referring a lot of ‘potential’ customers to the site, but Envato (and most businesses) are interested in actual customers. However, if these people have a very strong potential to turn into actual customers… then that should be reflected in your deposits count, and will give you a better chance of winning any of these contest. If these ‘potential’ customers don’t ever buy anything… should you be rewarded for that?

I could probably get all my Facebook friends to click on a referral link if they asked nicely, but it’s unlikely they’re going to buy anything. So they may be ‘potential’ customers… but there’s hardly any potential there.

And one final point… if they did award prizes purely for clickthroughs, then they’re just losing money. A competition that loses them money is going to be one that they’re unlikely to want to repeat, so it could spell the end of such things.

Thank you for providing a complete introduction and explanation to me. In any case, it is not too important to win the competition. I joined here in February and I share my referral within a week without any referrals. By now, about 70 new members are registered.

My target market is non-English speaking countries, mainly Asia (China, Taiwan and Hong Kong). All of them are Chinese users. I do not copy the official language directly. If I want to succeed, I need to do some localization work.

Since I was a graphic designer, I designed and compiled an introductory picture of the themeforest’s excellent Wordpress theme, and many Asians have never heard of themeforest, so I introduced them to them each month for a free Wordpress theme I bring good user conversion rate.

This is one of the promotion through social platforms, other platforms such as Twitter and Pinterest etc …

Disadvantage :
I’ve attracted most of them because of the free WordPress theme users to themeforest, and they may be less likely to spend the money on the theme users.
