Rename Each Folder
Large Folder: My Contests and then Subfolders
- Entered Once Already Entered
- Enter Once Need to Do
- Daily Contests
- Weekly Contests
Create Folders for everyone in your home that Qualifies to enter the same contest:
If your married/common-law/significant other and he/she has his email: Create a New folder system for them. Reading Rules of Contests Can help.
Kids – Sometimes, ages are only 13+ to enter or can enter with parent acknowledgment, and some contests are just for Kids.
Tips on Bookmarking Contests
- Bookmark Actual Entry page ( Will save you time)
Single Entry Contests Dilemmas
- Enter Once only contests are the hardest to track in the bookmarking system.
- Nowadays most Contest won’t allow you to enter twice if you have already entered in a single entry contest – Generally speaking, this should then stop you from over entering and being disqualified these days.
- Do You want to always enter a single entry contest on the day you find it?
- Another idea is to create subfolders for months in your “Enter Once” folder. Contests ending in January, February, March, etc. Then, keeping track that way. So example, Only enter contests that are the month ahead or month off.
How to begin Entering:
- Set up a Time of day to do your contesting.
- Do Daily Contests – Daily, if possible.
- Pick a day of the week to do weeks on top of daily contests – Example Sunday’s
- Pick a day of the month to do “monthly” Maybe make a rule 1st of the month or say the last Sunday of the month.
- As I mentioned, it’s the One Entry per person is hard to keep track of – so design what works for you. –
I hope this tutorial on Bookmarking your contests helps to keep you organized with contests.
