Online Contests and How to Win Them

Mar 3, 2008
There's never been a time in history when it's been easier to win contests, and with the introduction of the Internet, the phenomenon of online contests has made it possible for people to find and enter countless competitions. Online contests are more convenient than their offline conterparts, and there are even some web surfers who make a living by entering contests online and winning cash and prizes.

While you might not ever be able to make a living by winning online contests, you can definitely put yourself in the running for some really cool prizes, as well as increase your chances of winning any competitions or sweepstakes you might enter. In the end, online contests are really nothing more than games of chance, and luck will decide whether you become a winner or a loser. But by following a few simple guidelines, you can increase your chances of winning and make it more likely that you'll win prizes in online contests.

First of all, make sure that you research the online contest you're thinking of entering and double check to see if it's legitimate or not. Setting up a website and promising great prizes is easy to do, but unfortunately it's also easy to cheat peole by running a phony competition. There are more examples of these kinds of fake online contests than most people realize, and if you get the feeling that something is too good tobe true, then it probably is.

Secondly, do some internet research to find some of the best websites that deal exclusively with listing contests and sweepstakes in one convenient location. There are plenty of good sources online where you can find tons of sweepstakes and contests to enter and win. I'm not exagerating when I say that there are literally dozens of new online contests that your can enter every day, and you'll never run out of competitions that will let you toss your name in the hat.

As for the type of contests you should enter, those options are really endless, as well. People with their own websites or blogs can enter contests that are designed especially for you, and even if you don't have an online presence there are still contests you could enter that only require you to subscribe to an RSS feed or fill out a simple form.

So, could you make a full-time living by entering contests and winning free prizes? Well, maybe. But you can, without a doubt, win a little extra spending money and a few cool prizes by playing it smart and learning as much as you can about entering contests.
