How to Find Low Entry Contests and Giveaways Online

Contests with low entries can be a little tricky to find and worth it to search out and enter. Low entry contests increase your chances of winning a prize, but finding them without knowing what to look for could feel impossible. Local contests are perfect for low entries and better odds of winning.

How can you tell a contest is low entry?

  • On Facebook – We all see the contests on Facebook with thousands of entries and shares, that ask you to tag a million friends and share the post. These are not low entry contests, and most are swamped with fake profile entries which just dilute the contest into not being worth it.
  • On Twitter – You can see the amount of entries by the hearts, comments & retweets. Make sure to actually click on the post you see in your feed to be taken to the actual giveaway post.
  • On Instagram – You can see the number of comments and hearts on a giveaway post. A quick scan of the comments will show you if the contest is worth entering or not.
  • On Blogs – Blogs have different kinds of contests, some may be comment only ones, these are easy to see by checking the amount of comments at the bottom of the post.
  • Woobox or Gleam Contests – The widget tells you the number of entries so far into the contest.

International contests are never low entry contests, and neither are large brands contests. These bring in hundreds of thousands of entries lowering your odds of winning a prize.

What to look for when looking for low entry contests

Check contests at the near end of the contest to see what the entries are at. If they are low in your opinion then get your entries in.

Local to you bloggers – Bloggers in your own city or town will often have contests and giveaways that are only open to your general area. These are great places to find a contest with low entries.

Contest groups and contest pages on Facebook are the last place you should look for low entry contests. Contests shared there are usually contests with extremely high entries.
