Online Scavenger Hunts – A New Era in Online Marketing

  • August 12, 2007

Online Scavenger HuntsThe premise of eScavengers operates around the fact that it is a real-time competition. Just about every other night there is something called an “Adventure” You are presented with various web pages during each adventure, along with clues based on the content. Like a scavenger hunt, you follow the clues and find their corresponding text, image, or picture on the site, and click on it. Wrong answers yield a 3-second penalty, and correct answers move you on.

Since everyone competes at the same time, once you finish you get a report of the results. The first person to complete each adventure wins the grand prize. Almost all the prizes are worth over $100, and there are all kinds of categories of adventures. Everyone who competes, whether they win or lose, receives “Doubloons,” which you can trade in for things at “Treasure Island.”

It is the real-time competition aspect of the site that makes it so attractive, you actually have a chance to win based on your skill and speed.
