Why it’s Important to Always Turn ON Social Media Notifications

There is a reason I teach people to turn on all notifications on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you don’t, you could lose out big. It’s what happened to Andrew.Andrew Fudge

Predators fan explains epic mistake in Stanley Cup ticket contest

The short version is; he entered a Twitter contest, won, didn’t have his notifications turned on, didn’t reply, loss the prize, found the notification 6 weeks later.

Think of how different his Stanley Cup experience would have been if he had been at the game!

    I won a prize in a teletubbies sweepstakes a few months ago. I used a secondary email I don’t usually check as regularly as my main one. The winning notification email went to spam, and 6 wks later I was going through old spam msgs and saw it. I do check that email fairly often, but my problem is procrastinating checking spam. It’s so hard to get through those weird messages :/

    I recently discovered that I missed out on a win on Instagram because I was new to it and didn’t have my notifications on.
