A quick look into whether or not online competitions are worth it.

The Scam?

I'm sure you've all seen these sweepstakes on the side of your screen from time to time. What you may be surprised to hear is that they are mostly legitimate sweepstakes where someone DOES win a prize. The sad thing is, you never get to see who has won due to the nature of the internet, and seeing as how these competitions work (many just use a basic template) you would be forgiven for thinking that the offers never end and the sweepstake lasts forever.

Luckily, there is usually a winner on these sweepstakes, if no-one wins why do you think there are still so many out there? The problem is looking for the right type of competition. It's so easy just to pick the first one and be done with it, and assume that (since you didn't win) it was a scam. Don't be so quick to judge,

The proof

I have created a facebook group where we will try and get about 50,000 people to sign up and apply for a "daily competition". After a week or so of daily sweepstakes, the first winners should start rolling in. If we have enough people in the group then we will start seeing winners in our group, helping me to prove that these competitions are not fake. If no winners after 2 weeks or so, It's quite easy to say that these websites don't work or work at such a low ratio.

The link to the facebook group is here and I would be grateful if you could pass the message on to friends and family.

We need about 50,000 to prove that the competition actually work. Wouldn't you like some proof as well? When we have proof on our group, I shall re-post evidence into this article.
