(DailyThrive.com) – We all know at least one — the person who enters every sweepstakes known to man. Yet, they never seem to land the big prize and it often seems as if they’re wasting more time than actually winning.
Maybe it’s you. Maybe it’s your wife, your sister, or just your best friend. Either way, it has you wondering if people even win these contests. Could it be that they’re all rigged?
Not at all! Lady Luck is fickle, but you can improve your odds with a few simple strategies and a little bit of finesse. The Contest Queen talks about the best methods for winning sweepstakes in this video.
You Must Read the Rules
First and foremost, you must know the rules of the sweeps you’re entering. There are sometimes links to go to and boxes to check that you may be missing. These could also be affiliate links or other tasks to complete before your entry is counted. Failure to follow all the rules may disqualify you.
Keep Track of Your Entries
Contest Queen uses her own spreadsheet to track her entries. This simplifies all the different contests, platforms and when you’re eligible to re-enter. You can use hers or make your own.
Be Ready to Claim Your Prize
Have a designated email just for your contests. Is your spam filter set up correctly? If not, you may not get notified that you’re a winner. Be sure to check your voicemails and snail mail too. Otherwise, you could miss out on that big opportunity.
Winning a contest or sweepstakes is exciting, but you won’t get far if you don’t take the right steps. Be diligent and follow the rules; it’s that simple. Good luck!
