Are You Being Overwhelmed by Sweepstakes-Related Emails?

By December 18, 2008

Follow me on:

Recently, I've been receiving some emails with complaints from sweepers who are receiving too many emails from sponsors. I was wondering whether any of you are feeling overwhelmed by your sweepstakes email. Take my quick poll and let me know how you feel about the amount of email you receive.

If you enter sweepstakes, you're going to receive emails related to your entries. Some of these will be good news, like win notifications. Others will be confirmations of your entries, and still others will be marketing messages from the sponsors.

However, just because some emails are inevitable doesn't mean that they have to be unmanageable. My sweepstakes newsletter this week focuses on ways to reduce junk mail. If you're not already registered, sign up to receive free sweepstakes news and tips three times a week.

Here are some more tips to help you limit the amount of marketing contacts you receive from sponsors:

I get loads of emails from sweeps sponsors. Opting out, when you can, does help. Unfortunately, a lot of sweeps force you to sign up for their marketing emails!

A hazzard of the sweeping lifestyle, but it’s worth it when the prizes roll in :D
