Make Big Money Online Winning Contests

In my last post, Create Buzz for your Website with a Contest, I mentioned that you can really drive traffic, build links, or get RSS feed readers for your website with a contest. Its fun, simple, easy and most importantly it works.

Because it works so well, many bloggerss have been hosting contests, and some prizes are really appealing.

To make contests successful they really have to be easy. Bloggers are giving away large sums of money and prizes, and making it easy to win. There isn’t much of a reason NOT to enter when the reward is so high.

Win Money Entering Contests

By spending very little time entering in contests, I have personally won well over 100$ and smaller prizes including a very nice MP3 player.

In most of these contests it does take a little bit of luck, but if you enter a contest everyday, you are bound to win something. Even if it isn’t something you exactly want, you can turn around and give it away on your own blog.

Big Prizes to be Won

Blogs like INVESP are doing huge cash prize giveaways. There is 400$ up for grabs! To win that contest you must subscribe to their RSS feed. Sometime in the month of August, they will post a ‘secret word’ in their RSS feed. When you see the word you email it to One lucky person who sends the secret word to that email will be randomly selected to win. If you win, make sure you are a member of their mybloglog community, so you can receive the full 400$.

Not Every Contest Can Do That

Not everyone can afford to give away 400$, but say you win the contest. You can turn around and re-invest 100$ of that money on your own contest. If you can market the contest right you can expect quite a few linkbacks and RSS Feed Subscribers.

Everyone likes free stuff, especially free money.

    I have been having a contest on my site for one month and only got about 10 Entries so far, it ends tomorrow enter if you want to win $100 and get a free link back aswell

    you’ve received a low amount because that type of contest isnt popular

    your basically getting “free reviews” offering the chance to win money. Id rather stick to writing reviews where I get paid xx.xx amount of money.

    If you contest was linking to your site with a certain keyword etc, I would enter, however I’m not planning on participating in this contest because of the type

    Good luck

    Good point I will try a contest that way next time, but how would I choose the winner if it was just links?

    Holding a contest only works if you already have a nice amount of traffic. Just holding a contest does not generate mu “additional” traffic.

    If the contest isnt just random then yes you can, if it requires hard work and theres plenty of contests big money can be won

    I won a brand new PC with the Earners Forum competition through sheer hard work

    You can get more traffic with contests, but you have to promote the contest. Promoting a contest is generally easier than promoting a blog, because people are more likely to spread the word (especially if the prize is big).
