What is amazing about the above statistics is that the entire sweepstakes convention is run by different volunteers every year and all the prizes are donated or purchased out of the convention budget.
Since the conventions are run by volunteers, I am going to ask you to volunteer. How? Well, who do you know? Do you work for a company that could benefit from being exposed to 500+ new customers? Have them donate prizes or giveaways. Do you know the VP of Marketing (or any higher-up in the Marketing Department) for any large corporation? Please email me privately, and I will put you in touch with next year’s volunteer team.
Let’s have more prizes than ever before. I want to hear more screaming than at a rock concert!
Have you ever attended a sweepstakes convention?
