New Members, Up to the Challenge?

default blog post image

Determination, small improvements and action can take you a long way, even if you have so many skills to improve on. When that is combined with a little bit of originality, that is a great recipe to work with.

John Chapman is one of our members here at Adrian’s Hub. Not just “a member”, because he usually likes and wants to be on top of our contests. And, through consistent action over time, he usually is.

Why am I talking about John today? Well, we have these advertisements called PTD (paid to do) offers at Adrian’s Hub, where a member is paid cash or tokens for completing a certain task, the advertiser proposes. John creates such offers often, but yesterday he surprised me.

He practically created a challenge for new members of Adrian’s Hub or his own referrals (from my understanding it’s not a requirement to be in his downline, but maybe John will clarify that) to pass him in the main contest. If that happens, the member who does gets $2 from John for completing his PTD offer.

I am still unclear if this challenge is for current contest only or goes on for future contests as well, until he takes down the offer. And what happens at the beginning of the contests, if it’s not for this contest only? Another thing that would be nice if John clarifies for us.

The text of the offer should probably be updated to include answers to such questions. Otherwise, there is the following option, but not as many will take it.

Our site allows members to ask questions to PTD advertisers about their offers, if they need answers not provided in the text of the offer. Contacting the advertiser first is the smart step to take before you attempt to complete a PTD offer, if something seems unclear to you.

So, back to John’s offer. I mean challenge. I mean both. Any new member up for it? Any of John’s referrals up for it? I’m not saying it’s gonna be easy. But it’s gonna be sweet, LOL!

  1. Hi Adrian,

    Great blog post and what a great way to bolster one of your members who is doing things to stand out. WTG John.

    People think you have to go through all kinds of contortions to be a purple cow, which is Seth Godin’s book on how to stand out, but all you need to do is find simple creative things like John’s challenge. Love it.

    Ah ha. Working it little by little or slot.

  5. Yes, you may have found a good recipe here, way to go! However, this comes after a consistent behavior of connecting with your referrals and rewarding the active ones, not out of the blue. So you work for it and you appreciate what you have. That’s important!
