Jenny Fortune is an experienced comper and author of the book “How To Win Competitions“.  She believes that you  can increase your chances of winning quite significantly if you follow a few golden rules.  Here are her winning tips.

You Have to Be in It To Win It

You probably think that one is blindingly obvious but you will never win a competition you dont enter! Likewise, the more competition you enter the more you are likely to win.  Serious compers know that winning is a numbers game.  It is incredibly easy to enter competitions online – all it takes is a few minutes.  Every one you enter is a chance to win!


Some Competitions are Easier To Win Than Others

As a general rule, the more effort you have to put into entering a competition, the less entrants it will will attract.  Tie breaker competitions, or those which require you to take a photograph or complete a create task attract far fewer entrants than those which just require you to fill in a simple form.
Local competitions sometimes attract a mere handful of entrants. Check out your local newpaper or what’s on guide for some potential winning opportunities.  Lesser known blogs are also a goldmine for wins.


Know Where To Find The Best Competitions and Loquax are two of the best sources for online competitions.  You can find over 3000 competitions a month at Prizefinder, split into easy categories. Sort by category – Cars, Cash, Gadgets, Games, Kids etc to focus on the prizes you most want to win.  You can also search for competitions which are closing each day and track your entries

You can find competitions on Twitter on Twitaculous or by searching using #competition.  Twitter competitions are some of the easiest to enter as most just require a follow and retweet.  You can also just type into google “win {name of prize you want to win}”.  You will need to check competition is still in date but this can turn up some gems!


Comping Quick Tips

  • For winning tiebreakers check out Winspiration
  • Get a form filling app to take the monotony out of entering your personal info
  • If you only have limited time, only enter comps with prizes you really want.
  • Check out local papers, shops and products for little entered comps
  • Keep track of your entries and your wins!

 Positive Thinking Can Help You To Win Competitions!

Never underestimate the power of thinking positive.  One comper uses visualisation and postive affirmations to help her win competitions.  She visualises herself receiving the winning notification and how she will feel when she receives her prize. Since starting this, her wins have shot up remarkably! So think positive and start winning!
