..After signing up for tons of contests, I'm getting sick of the 10+ mandatory entries.
Yes, I understand that you need to get people to "like" your Facebook page. I get that you want more followers on Twitter. We all do! But, when it's ten or more bloggers and you have to like every one of their Facebook pages and their Twitter accounts--that's twenty things I have to do just to get past the mandatory part and have a chance at winning!
It's not that bad when it's simply two or three, or even five I can understand if you have a lot of people helping out with the contest. But if you have to create a new page just to list all the Facebook and Twitter pages for a mandatory entry, you might want to rethink what you are doing.
Sure, you're going to get a lot of likes and followers, but are they really going to last longer than the contest?
