Do you think always folding entry forms makes a difference when putting them into a box?
Here is why.
As the Administrator for this particular contest, all the in-person entries are being mailed to me, I then key them into a database, which is then emailed to the Agency who will be filming the official drawing (done via computer) for the Sponsor.
You should note the photo above is only one batch, from one ballot box. This was a national sweepstakes. Lots of data entry on my part!!
And you can’t enter any longer as it closed. Which is why I am sharing this information now as a glimpse behind the scenes.
Behind The Scenes
Here are the Top 5 Mistakes I found when administering this sweepstakes:
- Assume the drawing is being done in-store.
- Folding your entries.
- Putting in more than one entry.
- Not filling in the entire entry form.
- POOR HANDWRITING!
Be sure to watch the video as I go into far more detail on each error.
Do you make any of these in-person entry mistakes?
