Giveaways are fun, aren't they? Such a fun way to try out new products and even save money! With the holidays quickly approaching, there truly is no better time to start entering and winning. But how do you actually win? Obviously, part of it is just sheer luck...but there are many ways to help increase your chances greatly! Today, I'm sharing a few of those tricks!
- Play By The Rules. A lot of time and effort goes into a giveaway, so be kind and play by the rules. Generally, they are pretty simple- one entry per household, don't claim an entry if you haven't taken it, etc. Many winners have to be disqualified simply because they were found to be cheating. If you want to win, play fair.
- Come Back Daily. Many giveaways (mine included) include many options that allow you to earn more entries each day... from tweeting, to sharing, or even just interacting on social media. There are several lucky winners who have won multiple giveaways here on A Modern Day Fairy Tale and I have found that they tend to be those who are coming back and getting their daily entries every day. They truly do make a difference. Sometimes, new entry options are also added throughout the giveaway, so you'll be sure to catch those too!
- Stay Up To Date on Current Giveaways. If you don't know about the giveaways, you cannot win them, so if you love the giveaways offered, be sure to connect via social media and email.
- More Entries, More Chances. Most of my giveaways offer MANY entry options, and the more entries you complete, the higher your chances are to win! For the best chances, complete as many as you are able. Likewise, the more giveaways you enter, the higher your chances are of winning. You'll probably find that those who win often are entering a lot more than they're winning too!
- Share. Share. Share. Often you are given extra entries simply by sharing, but on some blogs/sites, you can actually get entries for every friend you refer! This can be a great way to earn a lot of extra entries, so look out for those.
- Check Out Giveaway Hops. Giveaway hops are some of my favorites! They are such a great way to find a ton of giveaways quickly and easily. Enter one giveaway and hop along to the rest!
- Check Your Email. If you're entering giveaways, you're going to want to make sure you are entering with an email that you use often. Thankfully, I rarely have to choose a new winner due to lack of response, but it DOES happen. On occasion, winning emails go to spam folders so be sure to check your spam regularly. (Most blogs- this one included- require you to reply within 48 hours. Some give just 24 hours.)
- Just Enter. Perhaps you're reading this and thinking, 'I can't do all that. I don't have the social media accounts to do ALL the entries, and I don't have the time to come back daily. What's the point?' But don't let that keep you from entering. While these things DO increase your chances, it only takes one entry to win. Do what you can, when you can. There have been more than a few winners who have completely just 1-2 entries!
