My routine is; check my emails, catch-up on Facebook posts, Twitter posts and then do my regular prize draws and competitions! I then spend ages on competition sites entering competitions, this is enough to distract me and only stopping for toilet and fag/tea breaks!
I only enter competitions where I want or need the prize, gone are the days of entering everything as, I did a few years ago, entering every comp I could find but I ended up the stuff I never used!
There are a number of Competition (comps) Sites which list a lot (but not all) online and offline comps. My favourites are Loquax http://forums.loquax.co.uk/index.php Competition Database http://www.competitiondatabase.co.uk and The PrizeFinder http://www.theprizefinder.com
All these sites have Daily Prizes Comps, Daily Entry Comps, Closing Soon Comps as well as Facebook, Twitter and Blog comps and giveaways! By registering on the sites, it lets you keep a track of all the comps you have entered and it’s easy to enter 100s a day! Also by keeping track of your entries you avoid entering the same comp over again and getting you disqualified from the draw.
As with everything, you SHOULD read the Terms & Conditions (T&C) as this will tell you what they do with your info, how many times you can enter – per person, email or address! Also how they contact the winner, do you need to check their site after the closing date or will they email you?
A popular method of running competitions is by using a widget called “Rafflecopter” or “Gleam”. There are a lot of posts available on how to use them, Di Coke from SuperLucky.me has a good one on her Blog here and Gleam here.
Daily Competitions and Prize Draws
Here are a few Daily Prize Draws which I go on regularly (these are my referral links);
“It’s a free to enter lottery, where all registered members have the opportunity to win free money on a daily basis, just enter your Car Registration Number Plate and email address to sign up. An email will be sent to you to validate your entry, then just check daily to see if your Number Plate appears on the sites home page.”
“FREE daily draw, £50 or more given away each day, registered members have the opportunity to win free money on a daily basis, just enter your Date of Birth and email address.”
“It’s a lottery but you don’t have to buy tickets. You just enter your postcode and if it is drawn you win money. You can only collect by visiting the site, but don’t worry, a daily email is sent to remind you”
“Every day a winner is chosen at random in both daily draws from all entrants and can claim the current prize for that draw.”
“What’s the catch? There’s no catch, I’m using this promotion as a way to encourage people to come back to my website and use it every day, I also make my living from advertising money and I’m using part of this advertising to fund the £50 prize. I hope you are able to visit my sponsors websites and you never know you may see something you like :-)”
