I remember thinking that sweepstakes were just a sham. I never entered because I felt extremely unlucky. I had gone my entire childhood and most of my adult life never winning anything. You know why? Because every now and then I would enter a sweepstake or we would have a school raffle, and I never won. I literally gave up and said it was all a bunch of crap. I later learned that was the biggest mistake I could have ever made. Had I known then what I know now, who knows where I would be. Probably owning my own island near somewhere like The Maldives. #Goals
I want to share with you a few tips on how to win giveaways. I have been entering sweepstakes and blog giveaways for about 4 years now and I have won a plethora of prizes. From $1,000 VISA gift cards to Spa Packages. I am here to tell you that anyone can be a winner, especially if I can. I will be sharing with you 5 tips that I feel help me to win a huge amount of giveaways. This isn’t the first time I have wrote about this subject. You can check out one of my first more in detail articles here.
Tip #1-Enter Everyday
This is the biggest tip I can share with you. When you enter everyday, you are increasing your odds of winning. After all, it really is all about the odds, right? Take an hour a day and dedicate to just entering sweepstakes. I know some people who will enter for 12 hours a day. They are always posting their wins, and let me tell you, they have A LOT of wins daily. However, some of those ladies and men have literally made that their job. I will write about that another day. I only take an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening to enter, and I win steadily. Try it out.
Tip #2- Enter Daily Sweeps
There are several different types of sweepstakes. There are one time entry, daily entry, weekly entry and monthly entry. I prefer the daily entry. Most people will enter a sweepstake and never go back to it. This is why I like daily entry sweepstakes. You can enter the sweepstake every single day until the sweepstake ends. This really increases your odds against those who just enter once. Alot of these daily entry sweepstakes also give you a chance to share with friends for extra entries too. Which brings me to my next tip.
Tip #3- Look For Extra Entries
Have you ever seen a giveaway that allowed you to tweet for an extra entry? Typically those also allow you to earn extra entries for every friend who enters using your link. Cool huh? Always look for the giveaways that want you to share with your friends for extra entries. Take advantage of that extra chance any time you see it. And don’t hesitate to ask your friends to use your link. You would be surprised how lucky you become when you aren’t stingy with your giveaways. It’s called good karma.
Tip #4- Enter Giveaways With Alot Of Prizes
Your odds on a huge $10,000 vacation will be much lower than the giveaway that has a $50 VISA rewards card with 500 winners. It’s all in the math. If you find a giveaway that has multiple prizes, then this is the kind you want to enter. I’m not saying to steer clear of the bigger sweeps with just one big grand prize, by all means enter them! I’m just saying to prioritize those sweeps with many winners, as you will win alot more and every win makes you want to enter more. If you just stick to big grand prize giveaways your chances of not winning are increased and therefore your chances of losing hope and to quit entering also increases.
Tip #5- Organize Your Sweeps
My final tip is to organize your sweeps. This means use bookmarks. Create folders for your daily sweeps, so you can go back to them and you can even open all of them with just a click of a button if they are in a book mark folder. If you have Google Chrome, you just click the star in your browser. Try it out, and get organized. You will be winning sweeps in no time!
I hope these tips have helped you a bit. You just have to make time for entering. If you are able to do that much, then you will be off to a GREAT start. Good luck to everyone and happy sweeping!
