Where to get votes
So here is the question. You have a contest. You have voters, but it appears far too little. So where do I get votes from? How can you increase your voting strength? (This article does not warrant the use express or implied that the writer uses these locations for votes. This article also does not represent that using these sites is also ethical express or implied. Use of these sites is strictly your call and up to your contest sponsor. Please check with your sponsor before using these sites.)
There are a number of sites which are designed to maximize your voting requests. These sites are generally called exchange voting sites which as the name implies means that you vote for that person and they will return your vote. There are also other sites where you post your vote and “hope for the best”. We will look at some of these sites now and in no way is this a complete list since more and more sites are popping up, being created or being deleted on a daily basis.
Facebook hosts a variety of places to seek votes. Any search using the keyword “vote” will bring up a host of these places. Here is but a few of the more popular sites;
I have listed 10 here, but there are literally hundreds more. Votes here can be traded one for one or with multiple accounts on an as needed basis. As I have said before, I do not condone the use of these sites and in doing so you assume all risk and liability for using them if the contest you are in does not allow the use of such sites.
There are other sites which are off Facebook that you can also use to gather vote trading. Let;s look at the top 3 sites which are widely used.
Again by no means is this list complete, but it gives one a starting point on where to get votes off Facebook. Again I also state that I do not condone the use of such sites and in doing so you assume all risk and liability if your contest sponsor disqualifies you for using such techniques.
There are of course other sites which are not in the English Language and using again the keyword Vote in searches will bring them up on Facebook or the world wide Web.
The traditional method of using these however is quickly falling by the wayside as more and more “screen shots” are presented to the sponsor in the hopes that the person telling this information to the sponsor will have the person using these forums disqualified. Some sponsors condone the use of these sites and other sponsors do not which leads to disqualifications. Sometimes it is easier to be more secretive than to be so open and find out after that the sponsor did not agree with your decision to place an ad looking for votes.
Back to Facebook
A number of things can also be done to increase support for your entry. Make a Group page on Facebook to add supporters. In doing so you can add members to your page and in turn your friends can also add their friends to make a viral voting community. Creating a group page is easy and anyone can do it. Simply start by clicking “home” then look in the left hand column where it says “create group” and follow the instructions, add friends and presto you are done. Not only does this allow the comfort of a quiet group room it also allows for a place to chat directly with those who are involved in your contest.
Make a Facebook page
Making a Facebook Page is also easy. Facebook provides templates so much of the work is already done. You can name the page anything you like, even naming it the current contest your in like “vote for me in the xxx contest!” page. In order to create a Facebook page you simply go to another Facebook page that you already like and under the the likes of any other Facebook page it says “create a page” which you click, follow the instructions and upload a photo to be used for your page. Very easy and simple and you can promote this page to any new followers or friends on Facebook. Even co-workers and family can share the link.
Whatever the choice you choose, have fun contesting and enjoy your contest wins or your attempts to win. Don’t fret if you don’t win for the matter is very simple. If you didn’t own it in the first place, then it wasn’t yours to begin with so there is no point in crying over spilled milk. Or in this case a lost contest.
