Entering in Contests and Sweepstakes is a great way to earn a little extra income. Mimi recommends entering local contests first.
Local contests provide a greater likelihood of winning because they are generally fewer entries. Popular local contests include: Local radio contests and news/TV station contests. The easiest way to enter contests is through the company’s website or Facebook page. Once you’ve gotten the lay of the land, so to speak, you should branch out to national contests.
National contests can be found on a number of different websites. Sweeties Sweeps is one of Mimi’s personal favorites. There’s also FreeFlys which provides contests, coupons, and other freebies.
Once you’ve got a solid list together, contests should be easy! Every time you hear of a new contest/sweepstakes, be sure to add it to your list.
Some contests are specific about entering only once, while other let you enter once daily and share for extra entries. Know your contest rules, so you have a good idea of where to spend your free time.
Entering and winning contests is addictive! Once you win, you’ll want to enter contests more and more; you’ll win more contests too!
