Winning is Easier Than You Think

There are so many competitions available and yet it’s easy to assume that you could never be the lucky winner. We all tend to assume that good things happen to other people. But the fact is that winning competitions can be a lot easier than you may think. At Competition Finder we know this first hand! After winning many competitions in the past, we wanted to make it easier for everyone to win!

Enter Competitions to Win

Many of us don’t enter competitions because we assume that we will never win. If you don’t enter then, of course, this prediction will hold true!. However, it may come as a surprise to learn that a significant number of competitions don’t have many entrants, meaning that if you do enter, your chances of scooping that prize may be significantly higher than you might expect.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that all competitions have thousands of entries. Whilst this might be true for competitions that are highly publicised, such as those in national newspapers and on the television, there are plenty of competitions available which will have relatively few entrants.

Comping as a Hobby

Comping, or the practice of entering competitions in your spare time, can be quite lucrative. It’s often possible to enter competitions quickly and easily on your phone. Think of all the time you spend waiting that could be used. Whether it’s waiting for a bus or waiting for the advert break to finish during your favourite television programme, there are numerous opportunities to enter competitions every day if you look for them.

Of course, the more competitions you enter, the more likely it is that you will scoop a prize. Seek out the competitions with prizes that appeal to you and put your spare time to good use. You could win anything from tickets to a favourite band through to a free holiday or even a new car.

Increasing your Chances of Winning

Whilst the very large competitions advertised nationally have attractive prizes, they will also attract huge numbers of entrants so your chances of winning will be slim. However, if you adopt the right strategy when entering competitions, you can increase your chances dramatically.

Choosing competitions that require something other than merely providing your name and email address can increase your chances of winning. This is because the more action required to enter a competition, the lower the number of entrants. Quite often the action required is simple. It may involve checking the company’s website for a keyword which can be achieved quickly and easily.

Similarly, the greater the level of skill required to enter a competition, the fewer entrants there are likely to be. Again, for most people, having to put in a bit of effort to enter a competition is off-putting and they will move on. Use this to your benefit by becoming one of the smaller number of applicants and thus improve your chances of winning.

Also, keep an eye out for the less obvious competitions such as those from more obscure brands as these are also likely to attract fewer entrants.

It may be possible to enter a competition more than once, increasing your chances of winning that way. For example, you may be allowed to submit one entry per mobile phone number or email address. However, do check the terms of the individual competition if you intend to do this to ensure that it doesn’t break the rules and invalidate any (or all) of your entries!
