“I admit I really miss how things used to be. But I can also admit, that I’ve accepted the fact that things have changed.”—Frank Ocean—songwriter
Such a true statement about most things in life-- including sweeping.
My first win fifty years ago was from a drop box. From there I went on to subscribe to Contest Newsletter. Good times…but that was yesterday…
Today--Because SweepsU is dedicated to helping people win we are going to continue to share trends that we think make more wins possible. No, we are not saying that any one method to win is better than another—we’re just saying let’s watch the trends and learn.
One of these trends is using Twitter to get sweeping information out to subscribers as quickly as possible. Yes, emails are good—but sometimes not fast enough.
Few of us have time to sit around watching Twitter all day for SweepsU tweets—so I’m going to suggest a better way of receiving SU tweets—using your smart phone to have SU tweets sent directly to you by text. Several of you may already be doing this—but if not—I’m going to show you how to make this happen.
· On your Twitter Homepage type @sweepsU.com in search box in upper right hand corner of the page.
· Once you are on the SU homepage go to the upper right side of the page and click on the cog to pull down the drop down. (See the diagram below.)
· Click on “turn on mobile notifications” (If you change your mind, you can always go back to the same place to turn off the notifications at any time.)
· Now you should begin receiving SU tweets directly on your smart phone.
Give it a try!Mary Ann Hart
