Book Description

Newly Revised for 2013!

Have you ever wondered about all these "Lucky" people you hear about always winning sweepstakes and contests? What are the secrets to what they did that made them more successful at winning than everybody else? I know I wondered about this, and I was going to figure out how to be a winner myself!

I set about learning all I could about entering sweeps and contests, and what it took to become a winner! I was determined to be a big winner myself! I won many, many small contests, but also some big ones.

Here's a little sampling of how I did it:

1) No need to spend hours scouring the internet to search out the contests for yourself. There are places that have 1000's of contests listed for FREE in one big database.

2) There is special software that is also FREE that you can download that will cut your entering time by over half. You will be able to enter tons more sweepstakes and be on your way to winning!

3) There are good, better and best sweepstakes to enter, and ones just to steer clear of.

4) Updated Content discusses all the new and cutting edge social media sites for sweepstakes.

You will also hear some true confessions about what happened to me while I was striving to be a winner. I want to help you avoid the same fate.

You can be a multiple sweepstakes winner, and I want to help you be a successful. At the end of the day, if you follow my little tips and tricks, you will find yourself on a winning path in no time at all and your e-mail inbox flooded with subject lines of:

"You are a Winner!"

We've all encountered the endless stream of big prize contests and super sweepstakes, but have you ever wondered who enters them, and if anyone actually wins?

Well, the answer to both is Penelope Silvers!

In this fascinating guide, she explains exactly where to find the best contests and sweepstakes, how and when to enter them, which ones to AVOID and where to find some incredible tools to give you the advantage over other entrants.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book, packed with helpful tips July 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I've never seriously considered entering sweepstakes regularly, until I read this book. Penelope breaks down the process in a really easy to follow manner and illustrates how easy it is to potentially get some great free stuff. I've just entered my first three give-aways, fingers crossed, looking forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tips for making entering sweepstakes easier July 19, 2012
By Nate R
Format:Kindle Edition
The thing I found most useful about this book were the end-of-chapter jump start action items to complete. Several of these tips alone will make entering sweepstakes and contests much faster and easier. This book is a no brainer for the price.

A friend encouraged me to get this book after I complained of being bored and a little bit down.

After reading the book I started to enter a few of the sweepstakes and contests basically just to give myself something to do. I must admit since then I've become a bit of a sweep-a-holic.

I always thought entering these things were just a waste of time! However, after getting to know some of the other sweepers through the sites listed in the book it gives you great confidence that you can win and also win big.

There is some great advice on making the most of your time. All the bits and pieces you'll need and how you can easily find all the best competitions as well described. There is also some good advice on avoiding competitions that are more hassle than they are worth or are not quite what they seem.

As the book points out (but I have also found out through experience) is to always look through the small print. It can be frustrating spending time entering a contest only to find out your not eligable. It is also worthwhile filling in all the details just as they want you to as they may not enter you.

Something the author admitted (I hadn't really thought about) was entering these contests and sweepstakes with the idea of selling the prizes on eBay or Amazon. I suppose doing this really opens up the number you can enter.

Even the smallest of prizes are good to win. This book has given me great inspiration to enter lots of contests and sweepstakes. Well worth the money and it will be more than paid for with your first win.

5.0 out of 5 stars Infectious May 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
No, this book won't make you sick. The title to this post, "Infectious", refers to the author's enthusiasm, which is indeed catching. If this is a disease, it's a good one.

I always thought that this sweeps stuff was a bunch of bull - uh - feathers. I'm glad to find out that I'm wrong.

This book is enjoyable, and stuffed with excellent advice, important warnings, useful tips, and helpful tools. Armed with this information, you too can become a winner!

If I ever get a spare minute to cram into my schedule edgewise, I will definitely take advantage of the knowledge presented in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Book! May 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have dreamed of the day when my doorbell rings, and when I answer it I spot the Publisher's Sweepstakes Truck and the people at the door hand me a check for $5 bazillion. It hasn't happened yet, and probably never will. I have stopped entering.

I can see where winning would be addictive, because you can get something of value, for just a few minutes of your time. The book is full of insider tips, such as automating your entries by using Roboform. Another insider tip involved simply resending an email, and thus creating another entry.

The cautions about following the rules exactly are important.

The bottom line for me is while I found the tips fascinating, I don't see myself sitting for hours entering contests. For one thing, my better half would not tolerate it. The warning about scams and spams is well founded. My email inboxes are filled with spam. I am one of those people that buy all of the shiny new things. I am an internet marketer's dream.

I have to say, if you are serious about sweepstakes, this is the book for you.

My husband gave me this book since he knows I'm always interested in this "lame" gambling stuff. I admit, I've never tried any sweepstakes or contests, mostly because I've thought it's just a scam/waste of time. Apparently not so. Ms Silver's personal experiences are very encouraging, and her tips of what to try and what to avoid are very useful, at least for a beginner like me. As a response to the person who's left a negative review while claiming that she can write a better guide, I would encourage her to do so. If it's really better I will go ahead and buy it. In the meantime, however, I'm enjoying "You are a Winner!" Thanks Penelope!
