The worst advice about competitions you should never listen to
There are always going to be negative people who don’t understand the compers life and they always seem to be the ones who are the least experienced when it comes to competitions and yet they act like they’re experts! Here’s the advice that those people say and why you should never listen to them!
- Don’t bother, there’s too much competition.
Actually the odds are 1 in a thousand for most competitions, depending on the prize. The more effort involved the less competition you have. The odds are better than if you bought a tatslotto ticket!
- You can’t win a 25 word or less competition unless you have a sob story
Not true! 25 word or less competitions are a game of skill. Creativity wins not your circumstances.
- Contact the promoters or judges
This is a big no, unless of course you have a genuine question. People often think the only way they can win is if they game the system somehow. Play by the rules and nobody wants an annoying busy body to be the winner anyway.
- Steal a winning 25 word or less answer from another competition
We’ve all seen winning answers floating around but don’t steal them for yourself! Firstly, once you submit an answer and win it’s owned by the promoter. Secondly, wouldn’t you want to win fair and square and have the satisfaction of winning with your own brain and creativity. I do!
Often people have the best intentions and all it takes is one bad of piece of advice to throw you off. Just keep entering and don’t listen to anyone!
