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”.
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.
