“We’re already at an additional 50 million entries since July and an additional 1,000 new contests in the same period,” said Craig McDaniel, Founder and President of Sweepstakes Today LLC (http://www.SweepstakesToday.com), reported today. “That’s a total of over 5 Billion entries and a total of more than 33,000 contests” he stated.
“Every entry is a win for the business sponsoring the contest. Business people understand the promo value of those entries,” he continued, “which is why we continue to see dozens of new contests every week.”
The increase in entries has continued even though there have been some signs of a slowly improving economy, according to McDaniel. “There’s at least one winner for every sweep and people realize winning can be a way to supplement their income,” he explained.
SweepstakesToday.com publishes for many of the Fortune 500 companies and well known named brands. “The members will entry a sweep if they believe it is safe and the prize will be fulfilled. For the sponsors, our first goal is to get them entries and to help build their online promotion and brand” McDaniel said.
Membership is always free on the premier site, he said, which means those entering the contests are investing only time. Since the web it’s possible to enter most sweepstakes without even paying for postage.
McDaniel created the site when after started winning the (online sweepstakes) he was entering because he realized the right kind of website would allow streamlining entries. He figured he was not the only one who would want to take advantage of the efficiencies the ‘net offered. He was right. The growth in membership there has required significant software updates to handle the load.
The members love “Mr. Sweepy,” as he’s known on the site. They often express their thanks on the forum there where they share tips and other information, forming an active online community. They often tell him how much their win means to their families.
McDaniel, who has won almost $100,000 in cash, trips electronics and includes two vehicles over his lifetime, gets excited when his members win. “I knew it would be fun,” he said. “What surprised me is how moved I am when someone wins big.
