A few days back I ran a contest giving away 5 Steem Basic Income Shares - you can find the link here, and yes the contest is still open for a couple more days. What surprised me was that so far the contest has only had 3 entries! Thats pretty poor if you ask me - especially when I hear so many people moan about not being able to make a few dollars on here. There are loads of ways to make a few dollars on here and get your account started - such as entering contests.
An easy way to earn upvotes for life
For this contest all I asked for people to enter was to create an original post about an initiative on Steemit that they like and would like to share with their followers (I also offered 1 share to a random person who resteemed the post). What I noticed is that loads of people have resteemed but not many have put the effort in to write an original post - this says to me people want to take the easy route, rather than put any effort in. This is the 3rd contest of these I have run - all have been run at a loss - I have used bidbots to promote them and also some resteem bots to gain further exposure.
So if you want to earn free upvotes for life, then I suggest giving this contest a go - at the moment your chances of winning are pretty high!
Other Steemians contests
Apart from the contest I run there are so many Steemians running awesome and fun contests every day - below are just some I have entered and really enjoy, but there are so many more if you browse through the 'contest' tag.
- @anjkara - 6 word story contest - all you need to do is find a picture related to the theme and make a story in 6 words - it only takes a minute or two for this one! (I somehow missed last weeks contest).
- @calisay - Album covers contest - If your into music then this contests for you. To enter you need to try and guess the album covers.
- @czechglobalhosts - Probably some of the biggest giveaways on Steemit - photography related where you can submit your travel photos for a chance to win.
- @fibra59 - Host of the highly entertaining Memechallenge and PhotobombChallenge!
- @o07 - Faily GIF contests - all you need to do to enter this one is to reply to the theme of the day with a GIF and your in the draw - easy!
Although this was meant as a bit of a rant, it also shows that there is no need to moan about not being able to make some extra money on here. As you can see above there are plenty of fun competitions to join in with - and these are just the ones I enjoy - I'm sure there are loads more fun ones about!
Thanks for reading and I hope to see a few more entries for my contest - and also the awesome Steemians contests I have shared here today.
