How to increase your chances of winning competitions

“I’ve gotten in hundreds of competitors, and also I’ve not won a point!”
” Everyone is winning other than me!”

Audio familiar?

If you check out interviews with compers in the newspapers, it could appear like winning prizes is very easy. The truth is, it’s not very easy– effective comping requires determination, persistence and positive reasoning. People are hardly ever efficient it quickly.

If you’re brand-new to the leisure activity, it will certainly take a while to enter the swing of points. Most new compers will certainly take pleasure in comping for a couple of weeks, then when they don’t win– they surrender. It’s the ones that maintain going that will become successful– and bear in mind, some marketers take months to notify their champions, so hold your horses!

The majority of compers think just 1 in 1000 of their competitors access is a champion. I don’t track the exact number of compensations I get in, yet my own proportion of victories to access is about 1 in 60. Why the distinction?

The bulk of compers concentrate on the quantity of comps gone into, discovering comps through listings websites like Loquax, PrizeFinder as well as MSE, after that making use of autofill and also keyboard shortcuts to complete internet access kinds swiftly. Some compers are getting in 200 or more compensations a day!

For me, it has to do with top quality of comps entered– I go into fewer comps yet invest more time on discovering them. I spend an hour or 2 most days locating and going into around 30-40 compensations, a blend of imaginative, acquisition needed, Twitter (replies, instead of RTs), Facebook (comments, instead of shares), Instagram, Gleam, Rafflecopter, postal, neighborhood and radio compensations.

I just use giveaway listings websites to look for effort/creative competitions, or to search for wishlist rewards. I simply do not intend to do a day-to-day trawl with the MoneySavingExpert forum or The PrizeFinder. I discover it boring, and also I likewise understand there’s a reduced chance of a win since hundreds of other individuals are getting in those same simple prize draws.

I concentrate on the rewards I wish to win by searching at the very least when a week for my wishlist prizes, utilizing bookmarked Google searches as well as saved Twitter searches to do this rapidly.

If you’re struggling to win anything, below are some ideas:
How to start winning
Get in each day

Search on Google or Twitter for the rewards you desire and competitors types you appreciate most (photo, video clip, Instagram, recipe, etc). Do you have a smart device?
