How to Win Competitions

Entering competitions can be an exciting and profitable activity. Millions of prizes are given away every year and now, via the Internet, it has never been easier for you to share in this bounty.

But.. you have to be in it to win it...

Here are a few expert tips aimed at making it easier for you to enter and win competitions.

1. Enter As Many Competitions As Possible

The more competitions you enter, the greater the chance to win. You are better off entering 100 competitions once rather then 1 competition a hundred times.

2. Use "Web Form Filler" Software

Use "Web Form Filler" software to speed up the process of entering competitions. It can make the difference between entering 20 competitions in an hour or being able to enter 100 competitions in an hour. We highly recommend Roboform. Google's Toolbar also has an auto fill feature that allows you to fill in your details with one click.

3. Enter Competitions That Have Fewer People Entering Them

Competitions that have fewer people entering them will be easier for you to win, so always enter a lot of these types. They are generally obscure competitions, competitions that require some skill or patience (e.g. a game or quiz), or competitions that require a purchase (only if you need the product of course).

4. More Prizes The Better

Go for competitions that have many prizes on offer. If there are 100 prizes on offer, you have 100 more chances to win something with each entry.

5. Read the Rules Or Terms and Conditions Carefully

You don't want to disqualify yourself because you entered a competition multiple times, when you were only allowed to enter it once.

6. Setup Free Email Accounts

Setup a free email account and use that to enter competitions. You will get some junk mail, so it might as well be to an email account you have set up especially for that purpose, rather than to your personal one.

7. Enter Real Details

We suggest that you always put your real details in when asked. How else can they verify who you are when you have won something?

8. Have Fun!

The most important rule is to have fun! Remember you do this because you love it. If it starts to feel like work, take a few days off and come back to it later. There will always be more competitions waiting for you when you return.
