Question: How Can I Find People to Use for My Sweepstakes Referrals?
We all want extra chances to win, and it can be tempting to enter the emails of every person you know to boost those odds. However, your friends and family might not be thrilled with being deluged by sweepstakes offers out of the blue. Here are some ideas for getting willing participants to use as referrals, without annoying your nearest and dearest.
- Ask Your Family & Friends.
It's not a good idea to send people a lot of email that they aren't expecting. However, that doesn't mean that your family and friends wouldn't be interested in the sweepstakes if they were given a choice. Ask your friends and family members if you can use them as a referral occasionally; just make sure that you don't overload them with too many offers at a time. You can even help them set up a separate sweepstakes email so that they don't get overwhelmed.
- Check Out the Sweepstakes Forum.
Visit the sweepstakes referrals section of the forum to exchange referral emails with other members. This has a dual benefit - you'll have the chance to learn about new sweepstakes from people who refer you, while boosting your own chances to win by referring others.
- Use Your Sweepstakes Club.
If you belong to a sweepstakes club, other members of your group will most likely be glad to exchange email addresses to use for referrals. It's a win-win situation for everyone.
