    You guys, this got me really curious, if many of you have so many fb accounts and can vote a lot on competitions, why aren't some of you winning a great deal of contest on facebook?ยป I mean if I had 3000 great fb accounts with friends and activity on each account I would won every compettiion i found and I mean they have competitions on fb for everything now and really NICE prizes like cars, luxury travel packages and even money why aren't you winning everything?

    My questions had no second intentions, I am just curious about the process and trying to figure out if what "you" do when selling likes is really working or if people get banned on the competitions by using such methods, I'm not judging anyone or doubting I am just curious about why - if this method works - don't the fb marketing pros with tons of accounts, why don't they use it. or maybe they do :) Cheers

    Maybe, in some cases, but in other cases I am pretty sure the competitions are legit. I work as community manager on facebook, I run several pages for international Brands here in Portugal for a Marketing company and they are pretty legit brands we don't use any blackhat methods to get likes we just buy facebook ad space and sponsored stories and etc and we run a lot of competitions.

    At this moment I am managing a competitionsthat is offering a trip to Miami for 5 winners and I guarantee the prize is legit , we have offered before trips to Ibiza and etc and the prizes were real and many companies here in Portugal are running contests of the like.

    Last month the Yellow Pages ( which is a portuguese site that offers a comprehensive listing of phone numbers of services and companies) sponsored a contest between fans and the prize was 30k euros, it was legit I can guarantee you and also SEAT did a competition for a car and was also legit, i mean, legit brands do legit competitions and at least in Portugal it is a fashion of a sort ( don't know if this is the correct term in English sorry for my bad English) to do this type of competitions and the brands are offering really cool prizes.

    At this moment I am competing for a trip to Ibiza where I wil be allowed to bring 3 friends and it is all free, including lodging I am winning but have still not bought likes I am just bothering my friends a lot :D Anyway thanks for your input. Cheers

    It is just that it's difficult to know which page a contest is going on I guess?

    What I do is go to groups that are made for promoting what contests are going on, in Portugal. If you do a search you will find groups and pages that are there for this purpose, for the purpose of sharing what contests are going on, in Portugal there are at least 3 groups that post daily what contests are going on, the most important ones with the best prizes :) Hope this helps
    Cheers,

    How would you feel if you had a cruise for 3, but the account you won it on was a 120 lb bimbo with 50 lb tits, and you are balding with a beard? Not to mention, claiming a contest winnings with an alias is called fraud.

    I see what your saying , but couldn't you participate with your own account, your own personal one with the real pics and use the other 2999 accounts to vote for your competition? You wouldn't be claiming a contest winning with an alias but I guess using "fake" accounts to vote a competition is also a fraud...

    I think someone who is confortable with selling "fake" likes would also be confortable in using them or not ? Not saying I agree or disagree with the practice just trying to understand why the like suppliers don't use the service for themselves it could bring much more profit than selling the likes.

    thanks for all your opinions, glad to hear them.

    This would get more activity if you ran it in Cuba or Haiti.

    Yes, it is a good point but I never suggested doing so, like I said in my reply, you CAN use your own legit profile and use the alias ones to vote...

    I can't, this is a Portuguese page for a Rum brand and the contest is for Portuguese fans only. :)

    Anyone with enough fire power to win these comps on facebook have most likely been banned from using it and thus wont be stupid enough to have their real personal details on facebook nor would they want to link their fake accounts to their profile in anyway unless they were asking for another C&D.

    Well you're getting close to my point, that's exactly what I think so, people selling likes on "liking" competitions are also putting their clients in risk right? So buyin fake likes for a competition can get you banned out of the competition and even facebook....

    We Blackhatters here on BHW use our FB fire power and brain to make monies enough to buy a REAL Limbo rather than wasting time in participating in kiddish contents trying our luck to win one. We believe is doing stuff rather than being lucky to win a contest.
