Why I Love Gift Giveaways and Contests

If you spend much time online, you are sure to encounter a “gift giveaway” or “enter to win” contest

And in case you have no idea what I’m talking about, I’ve linked an example of a Contest and Giveaway:



Now, my BFFs, while these are often touted as “great ways to build your list”…

And they can be…


But I want to talk about them for a different reason:

Beside the fact that I am a sucker for a freebie…

I like giveaways because they are a quick way for me to “people shop” online.

You see, I am always interested in expanding my horizons…

And finding new people to connect with…

And freebie shopping is a quick way for me to find people I am aligned with…

or maybe even services that I need!


But contests really get me excited.

Because I love the idea of WINNING…

and because what is offered as part of an “enter to win” contest is usually much more valuable than anything offered in a “giveaway”.

Case in point:

Rachel Archelaus is currently running a contest for a chance to win:

Intuitive Art Life Painting & Soul Reading,

An Intuitive Art Class Bundle,

the Soul Focus Method,

Art supplies and more!

Total value is over $2,000.



And the best part about contests, is that they usually come with consolation prizes if you don’t win.

I just entered Rachel’s contest…

because I REALLY want that Intuitive Art Life Painting and Soul Reading

And while the drawing isn’t until tomorrow

I’ve already received a super cool beginners class in intuitive art… for free!

So, while contests and giveaways are undoubtedly a great way to reach more people and grow your list (from a marketing standpoint),

I love them from a consumer standpoint as well!

Simply for the benefits I receive from entering my name and email.


Okay, so if you are so inclined,

 Do some poeple shopping

And enter to Win Rachel’s contest!
