Best of the Web owes much of its success to affiliates, each of whom plays a part in reinforcing the BOTW brand across the web, particularly within the Internet marketing community. As a result, every so often we like to express our appreciation to those savvy BOTW Resellers by giving them the opportunity to showcase their competitive marketing skills for the chance to win big prizes. In the past, winners of BOTW Reseller Contests have been the recipients of HDTVs and iPads with all the latest features.
For those few BOTW fans out there who are unfamiliar with the Reseller Program, it provides webmasters and marketers alike with a way to earn money through referrals to the Web Directory while promoting their own websites. You can join the reseller ranks for free, either by upgrading an existing BOTW account or creating one, and immediately start earning 25% commission on all sales.
We’re now holding a Reseller Contest that requires that competitive edge and creativity that we know all of our affiliates possess, but can be won without maxing out on referred customers. Here’s how:
Create a video of yourself recommending Best of the Web to potential customers and, once finished, email it with the subject “Reseller Video Contest” to firstname.lastname@example.org. All affiliates who submit a recommendation video before July 31 will automatically receive a $25 Amazon gift card. The overall winner* will be awarded a $500 American Express gift card.
The winning video will then be displayed on prominent pages of the BOTW Directory**, and therefore all submissions should have a focused message while being both creative and authentic. Video submissions will be accepted throughout July, and the grand prize winner will be announced at the beginning of August, so don’t delay – start creating today!
Video submissions should be roughly 60 seconds long, and must be submitted by July 31 to be eligible for the prize. If you’re having trouble finding a focus for your recommendation (because with 60 seconds of camera time, you’ll need to choose a talking point) – here are a few suggestions:
- Consider the benefits of having a listing in the Web Directory or Local Directory.
- Explain why you submit to Best of the Web for your business or for clients.
- Talk about your experiences with Best of the Web.
If you’re still struggling for ideas, find your inspiration by taking a look around the BOTW Directory. While you’re there, read over our Reseller Terms of Service, as they were recently updated.
*The winning video will be selected solely at the discretion of Best of the Web. All decisions are final.
**We reserve the right to use, edit, and display any parts of, or whole video submissions in any ways and for all chosen purposes deemed appropriate by and relating to Best of the Web.
