I took a look at a plugin for Wordpress Called WPIncentive.

In short, if people comment on your blog you can send them a free gift.

If they come back more often they will receive another one

so for the first post they receive a gift.

After giving 3, 5 and 10 comments on your blog they will receive more free gifts.

I just wonder if there is a widget/control/plugin (whatever the technical name should be) like that for BlogEngine.

My other idea is in the same line of thought.

Somebody subscribes to my newsletter.

He/She receives an incentive, some piece of software, a free report, an ebook or whatever.

If, through the subscriber's action, I receive more subscribers, the original person receives a follow-up on the first gift.

Same idea as above, the more subscribers, in this case through the actions of somebody else, the more free gifts the original subscriber receives.

Of course, the people that subscribe due to the actions of the original poster also receive the free gifts. (and so on, and so on).

Kind of affiliate marketing for blogs. Subscribers become affiliates.

Does anybody have an idea how to make these ideas work? Is that invented already?
