Does anyone actually win those contests you see advertised? Working in the tourism industry, we run promotions and giveaway vacation stays. Most times, winners do end up redeeming the vacation. I’m a fan of contests because I want to win. I’ve entered countless contests with prizes ranging from BBQ sauce to trips across the globe. I’ve won small stuff, like movie tickets from a Dove contest last year but nothing big.
I’d be a great contest winner because I’d provide added value with my blogging, tweets, Facebook posts and possible YouTube video postings. Do other contest winners offer this?
So, I’ve decided to start keeping track of what contests I enter and if I win anything. I plan to log every contest I enter for a year along with the results. If I win something sooner, I’ll post that along with how many contests to date I’ve entered.
What’s the purpose? I’m not sure other than satisfying my own curiosity as to how many contests I need to enter before winning something and if it’s possible to win a big prize – like a vacation, vehicle, expensive electronics item.
I want to know, have you ever won a contest? If so, who sponsored it, what did you have to do to win and what did you win?
