How To Get Votes
Every vote you get for your essay gives you a better chance at being the winner. The best way to get votes is to continually promote your essay to as many people as you can. How do you promote your essay and get people to vote? Check out a few of our tips below.
Share The Message
Once your essay is published, a voting poll will be placed on our scholarship page (http://schooltutoring.com/scholarship). Share this link with the world and ask for votes:
- Share on social media like Google+, Facebook, or Twitter
- Text the link from your phone
- Send an email to anyone in your address book
One thing that will help you promote your essay is giving your audience some details about why you want to win the scholarship or what it means for you to go to college. Also explain what the topic was and why you decided to write about it. The more you connect with people on social media the more likely they are to help you.
Ask Your Friends To Share
The easiest way to get votes is to ask other people to also share your essay. Social media makes this easy to do. Besides posting the unique link to your essay and asking for votes, you can also ask your friends and family to re-post that link on their own social media accounts, so you can reach even more people.
Make sure your settings on Facebook and Google+ allow your postings to be shared publicly to reach people you aren’t connected to. You can also ask your family members and close friends to share your link by sending an email or text.
Repost Your Message
Your friends have busy lives and could easily miss your post on social media. That’s why, it’s important to get back to the top of their feed every few days When you re-post your essay on social media, it helps to change the message you send along with it, to make it look fresh and interesting.
Email Your Existing Contacts
Once your essay is live, you may want to send out an e-mail to all of your contacts and share the link to the voting page.
Use Your Phone
You can also text yourself a link, so you have it on hand and can send it to anyone you know with a mobile phone. Texting is also a good way to contact people who aren’t on social media too!
