Be Social

One of the most important parts of entering sweepstakes in the “information age” is to be social!  In most cases, the promoters are looking to promote and the more you do to help, the more chances you have to win!
You are going to want to have active profiles on each of the following platforms:  Google+, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  That’s just a start, too.  More and more sweepstakes and contests are popping up on other sites like Tumblr and Instagram, too!  Pretty much, any new social media site that is taking off, sign up and at least check it out.  If it becomes a social media site everyone likes to use, chances are there is going to be a sweepstakes somewhere that uses it.
To give an example of this, when Twitter first started gaining in popularity, I was very comfortable just sharing the sweepstakes I entered on my Facebook profile.  I have tons of friends who like to enter sweepstakes on Facebook, so I figured I really didn’t need to start into the whole Twitter thing.  Even though I’m a tech at heart, I didn’t really want to figure out how to tweet and thought it was probably a waste of time.
Before I knew it, I’m seeing one friend after another bragging about winning sweepstakes they entered via tweeting.  I was missing out.  Needless to say, as much as I hated to dive into learning something new, I tried it out.  I signed up and figured out how to make a profile, how to follow others and thus, got some followers.  Before I knew it, I had my first win via a simple tweet and I LOVED how simple it was, once I learned the whole process.
For now, my personal social media links can be accessed here, feel free to add me, follow me and pin me when you sign up!  That’s a start.  After signing up, be sure to check out how to use each site and actually USE them.  When I have free time, I always try to “retweet” something interesting (other than sweepstakes) or “repin” a great recipe.  You’ll want active social media sites, so other people will want to be social with you.
Also, be sure to follow people on the sites who have interests similar to your own.  Lots of people will “follow you back” when you’re following them on these kinds of sites.  It’s a great way to make new friends and the best part about it is that a lot of the sweepstakes now a days want you to share on your Facebook, tweet on your Twitter, etc.  If you’re sharing sweepstakes with people who enter sweepstakes it is a lot better than sharing sweepstakes with people who don’t like them at all.
