So How does one win without even trying? 2 words:
Yep, that’s right! It’s so easy winning stuff via Blogger giveaways that sometimes all you need to do is visit one of many great sites, and just leave a comment! I’ve personally won 2 giveaway prizes this way!
You see, very often a newer growing blog site will have an occasional giveaway in celebration of a milestone accomplished! Being a reader of many different sites, I’ll leave a comment saying “Congratulations”. Now with these celebrations, the bloggers may have a giveaway, and the criteria for the giveaway is just for a comment to be left on the site. So even though I didn’t really try to win a prize, my name would be entered anyway because I left a comment, thus enabling me to win without me really trying!
When you play the lottery, your changes of winning are minuscule let’s be generous and say .0001% (that’s pretty slim!)
But when you try for a giveaway on a blog site, you chances might be 1 in 8 for a $50 and higher gift certificate! That’s a 12.5 percent chance of winning!!! If you consider sometimes there are more than 1 prize your odds even go up higher! I’ve seen some sites literally give 1 prize for all commenters! How’s that for great odds!!
Giveaways are also great because they are win-wins! Often you get to check out a great site, and at the same time you get to enter a winnable contest! it’s fun to win (especially when you aren’t trying to)!
The point of this post is to get you to see the alternatives instead of just the huge wins. Contests don’t always have to have a huge payout and the odds of winning is drastically better than of winning the state lottery.
This past year, I blogged about such a win in my blog post called “My Close Friend Won A House“! Now granted the total value of the house and prizes equaled hundreds of thousands of dollars, but the odds were much better than winning the state lottery. Would it surprise you to learn that she said she hasn’t ever played the state lottery? Yep, as lucky as this friend was, she realize that the odds of her winning the state lottery was so incredible low that she didn’t think it was worth it! I think I calculated she really had only a bit better than 1% chance of winning her house, but that was well over 1000 times better odds than trying to win the State lottery!
Plus the beauty of blogger giveaways/contests are that they don’t cost anything to enter! You don’t have to pay for a ticket or even pay for a stamp for submission! And even the shipping of the gift to your house the blogger typically pick up! It’s a win-win!
The only reason that I bring this point up is that I myself didn’t realize how easy it was to get free stuff from these blogger’s giveaways… until I won a few by accident!
