Those that have multiple accounts to try and better their chances at winning usually enter the giveaways that give them extra entries for referring other entrants. They log in, enter, share a referral link, log out, log back in using a different name & email address, click the referral link that they just shared and enter again. Some may repeat this process several times depending on how many extra accounts they have created. Now I'm exhausted just reading through that process, not to mention confused - I don't know how they keep track, it's an extremely time consuming way just to gain a few extra entries in ONE competition. Yes, ONE competition, the chance to win ONE prize when they are far better off saving their time entering that giveaway just once in their real name and then using the rest of their time searching for other competitions to enter. I wonder if they realise how many potential prizes they are missing out on just by focusing all their time and energy on a select number of giveaways? Trust me it's heaps, and if they think that they have already entered ALL the competitions, they are sadly mistaking and obviously not looking hard enough because at any given time, there are so many competitions out there to enter that one could not possibly enter them all (but we like to try, right?).
Since I started using the Gleam App to run giveaways on this blog it has astounded me how many people actually do this. If they think that in order to win a prize they must cheat then they obviously do not have any confidence in their own comping skills. Having all these extra entries does not guarantee a win. I can't count the amount of times that I've drawn a winner from thousands of entries to see that that person had just a single entry in the competition. Don't get me wrong, if you are legitimately sharing a giveaway and your friends enter via your referral link to give you extra entries, fine, you'll gain those entries with no further effort or wasted time. I'm sure you enter, share and then move onto the next comp, but if you are logging in and logging out over and over to gain them, well that seems like great lengths to go to when you could just be entering another giveaway and hey, that way you might win them both!
