Win Prizes from Twitter

Posted on 28 October 2010

Twitter is the best online marketing tool and every day a variety of competitions and contests surface on Twitter. You can easily win great prizes from these contests and competitions. Recently, different contests have given away great variety of prizes that range from notebooks to gas cards and prize money of $25, 000 for new car. You can take part in as many contests as you want without spending a dime from your pocket.

The things that are required from you are patience and some strategy. Once you start winning cool prizes from Twitter, then you won’t be able to stop yourself. To get exciting prizes, you need to follow a strategy, here you go.

1: Check Your Twitter Skills

First of all, you need to assess your Twitter usage ability. That’s because almost 50% of users leave Twitter within 30 days of creating an account on Twitter. That happens mainly because of their lack of solid reason to tweet. If you are a Twitter quitter, then you can start tweeting again for contests by considering it as an incentive for you.

2: Create a Separate Account for Twitter Contests

If you use your main Twitter account for taking part in contests, then you may lose your important contacts. So the better idea is to create a separate contest – specific account on Twitter.

3: Search Contests

You can search contests on Twitter by following your favorite companies and products. You can use “Find People” option for this purpose and easily get a list of relevant companies. You can also search for contests by using the same term “search” and “giveaway”. Be careful because all contests are not legitimate, so try to take part only reliable contests that are running by reliable companies that you already know. You can also use Google search system to find contests on Twitter.

4: The Process of Entry

All contests are not operated by using same strategy, but majority of them have same traits. Companies require their participants to follow them and retweet particular messages. Whereas, in other contests companies require you to reply first with the correct answer to win prize. Before entering into any contest, make sure that you have read their rules on their official website.

5: Enter Contests More Efficiently by Using HootSuite

You can use HootSuite to enter in single contest multiple times if it allows multiple entries. By using HootSuite you can manage your account and schedule of your entries. You can also find new contests by using HootSuite set up. Just set up a permanent keyword for searching new contests, that keyword is “contest”, “giveaway”, and “sweepstakes.” Moreover, you can use HootSuite to retweet.

You are the Winner! Now What?

Usually, when the winner is declared, the organizers of contest contact the winner on Twitter with either a reply or a direct message. You are required to reply them with your shipping information after your winning to get the prize.
