Is It Your Time to Win a Contest?

Jun 20, 2019

Contests are popping up all over the internet in the form of product giveaways, sweepstakes, raffles, and game prizes. With access to the internet, it is the best time ever to try to win a contest. Almost all of these contests are required by law to show and publish that someone actually wins each one. Most online contests can be won by simply filling out your name, email address, and picking a prize! Understanding the different types of contests you can enter and entering the most amount you can will make it extremely likely you may see several victories in no time at all. Many people win multiple drawings and sweepstakes in the same month just because of the low volume of people that actually try to win. This is the best time to get in on the action and take home high value prizes for yourself, friends, and family!

Types of Contests

The internet has opened up with so many types of contests for you to enter and win. The major type that most people enter are simple sweepstakes. You add an online entry by filling out your name, email address, and maybe answer a few questions. This gives you at least one entry. However, many websites will actually let you enter multiple times to maximize your chances. Many giveaways may ask you to follow the website on social media and tell them which product you would like to win. Once you select your prize, they use something called a random number generator to determine who is the winner. Many of these drawings allow you to post several times a day on your social media profile to give you even more entries. Winners in these contests are usually notified via social media so you can go through past winners to see that the contest actually pays out to its participants. This is a way to guarantee you are spending your time wisely on each contest.

Tips for Increasing Your Contest Odds

As mentioned, many contests and giveaways will allow you to use your social media page to get multiple entries per day. Additionally, you can usually ask your friends to use your referral link. This will ordinarily net you one entry for them, and another for yourself. Some websites offer a small prize for just completing surveys which can include samples of their products or even more entries into the drawing. You can't win if you don't play, and you increase your chances exponentially the more you play. Another great way to guarantee you win a few prizes a month is to enter as many sweepstakes as possible. Most people who attempt these contests report that they would receive at least one price for every ten drawings they entered. This could include products from hot companies like Apple or Microsoft. The name of the game is maximizing the amount of times your name will come up in the random number generator. You should also be sure to give accurate information. Fake email addresses or fake names will likely be picked up by the company computer and you will have all of your entries invalidated. There’s nothing wrong with creating a second contest specific email account. Just don’t put fake information into it.

Online Contests

Now that you are equipped with the knowledge of online contests you have no excuse to sit back and watch other people win valuable prizes. The dollar amounts on these prizes can range from hundreds to even thousands of dollars. All of that can be yours after just a few short minutes sitting at your computer. Dedicating some time each day to filling out different drawings, sweepstakes, and giveaways will give you a head start on all of the competition. If you struggle to win a prize at first, stay encouraged. Someone has to win every drawing and every time you participate you are raising the odds that you will be the next winner. You should also encourage your friends to sign up and participate in contests where you see prizes that they would enjoy. This means they will look out for you in future contests and everyone can become a winner.
