Helen was standing in the front of the room facing all the instructors and speakers. “Come on,” encouraged David, “Ask them what they have for you.” Completely overwhelmed, she finally croaked, “Trick or treat!”
As the whole room laughed, Helen received thousands of dollars in products, coaching and mentoring from the speakers at NAMS (Niche Affiliate Marketing System) on top of the computer David Perdew had already given her.
Contests Encourage Implementation
The purpose of the contest was not only to sell as many memberships as possible, but also to implement the teachings from the weekend. How can you be creative in selling an affiliate program?
NAMS offered many great ways to move your internet business forward, whether you are just starting online as a complement to your offline business or whether the internet is your sole focus for making money.
Your audience learns best while they are actually doing what you teach. By hosting a contest, you encourage them to put into action what they’ve learned. You create excitement among your attendees, because who doesn’t want to win a contest and great prizes?
You also create better results for your audience and by extension for you. Better results for your attendees become better testimonials, which ultimately turn into more clients. Now that’s a win/win if I ever saw one.
What action do you want them to take?
So think of how you can incorporate contests into your seminars and workshops. What action do you want them to take? What can you give away? Think about your own products and services and also that of your sponsorship partners. The speakers all presented Helen with their own information products and coaching services. Pretty awesome!
David Perdew also presented Helen with a free ticket to NAMS for life. NAMS is held twice a year (in January and in August) and costs $497. Wouldn’t you say that is a very generous gift? Yet it doesn’t cost David anything out of pocket and he gets an incredible amount of goodwill and PR out of it. (I am sure I am not the only one writing about it!)
NAMS was an incredible experience, not only for the education but also for the people I met. NAMS is unique in that it offers 4 tracks of education, based on where you are in your business. The NAMS100 track is perfect if you don’t have a website yet, while NAMS400 has education for people who are already making great money online.
The quality of the instructors and the access to them is really unparalleled. You can learn in class from an instructor 1 minute, and have lunch with them the next. Seriously, I had lunch with the amazing Kathleen Gage and the fabulous Ellen Britt. Quite a treat!
