Here are the answers from participants in last weeks Brain Exchange:
Here’s how it works:
Topic: Give-A-Ways- Love Em or Hate Em
Question: What are your thoughts on give-a-ways? Do you enter them often? What entices you to enter or turns you off from entering? Have you run your own give-a-ways?
I have a very love/hate relationship with give-a-ways. I have run my own and I have fun with it, but I only run them now and then and only when I feel like I have something really good to give away.
Easy to enter; the easier it is to enter, the better chance that I will. The best ones are the ones where all you have to do is leave an email and say you want to win! I love those!
Something I really want to win. I won’t enter if it is something I do not want or cannot use. I wouldn’t want to take the chance away from someone else.
Difficult to enter. If I have to visit the website, come back and tell you about it then go to another page that leads me to a page that takes me to a different page and so and and so forth, I probably won’t bother. The truth is, I don’t have that kind of time. And if it is a site I want to visit, I don’t need to be bribed with a give-a-way to do so.
Really, I guess it is pretty simple for me…if I see the rules, and they start with numbers, and I know it is going to take me a lot of time, than I probably won’t enter unless it is something that I just cannot pass up. I would say on average I enter one or two every other week or two. I really do appreciate the effort and thought that go into running them and I enjoy when someone wins mine and emails me with excitement, so even thought I don’t enter them all (or even many) I will continue to run them and enter them when they are easy and something I really want.
