Contests are easier to win than you may think!

Contests are easier to win than you may think!

its-easy-to-win-contestSince we are running our first contest ever and we have only received a few contest entries so far, I thought I would look to the web and see about promoting the contest to some high traffic contest sites. I came upon the most interesting webpage from someone that LOVES to enter contests. She shares her tips for entering contests. It was a slightly startling and an intriguing article. Here is a clip from what she wrote that amazed me, I think it will amaze (and possibly encourage) you as well!

Essay and Photo Contests

Any giveaway that requires you to take a photo, write an essay or something similar is going to get very few entries and anyone who does enter will have great odds of winning. There was a contest from a Ford dealer where the prize was a new car but you had to upload a video describing why you should win. They got a total of 13 entries. That contest used public voting to decide the winner so I’m not surprised that only people who had some talent in producing videos decided to enter. There are some contests, however, that require you to upload a photo or an essay but the winner is decided through a random draw – that is to say, your photo or essay isn’t voted on or judged. These are the ones you should jump on when you find them. Most people will see they have to do some work to enter so they will skip it and move on to the easy entry sweeps. I have entered some of these in the past and I won a nice one a few years ago.
