How To Win Contests (part 2) PLUS! Enter My First Contest Ever!



KITTY!!!! wonders if you entered my contest yet...

So, you sat through (read through??) my last post on how to win contests.

I appreciate it!

Next up is how to win locally (which is my favorite). Most people know about radio contests (call in and win) but what a lot of people tend to forget is that many (if not all) radio stations and local news stations have contests on their websites.  Usually under the title Win! Or Contest! (Creative, I know…) you can find great local contests…

My wins have included (from local radio stations and local news stations)

  • Elliptical
  • Honda Scooter
  • Movie Passes

So, try that! Not many people know about them, so it’s great…

Okay, on to what is really important. Pictures of KITTTY!!!! (exclamation points added to capture her aura).

Just kidding…
