After being in business for many years, I started to notice certain principles that by living by them, they seemed to create more success for me. Then I started telling them to my mentees and they seemed to have more success when they adhered to them.

Contests are great for many things like list building, brand awareness, and even selling products. What’s also great is there are many built in features a contest has to help you go viral and get free traffic.

This is a built-in scarcity factor that causes people to take action and join before the deadline.
