If you read comping forums and social media, it’s generally regarded that winning prizes has got a lot harder. On top of that the quality of prizes is perhaps not as good as it was. Most certainly the days of big cash prizes, multiple DVDs and 100s of tshirt giveaways are a distant memory. But […]
The Loquax Competitions Blog
Our blog is where we get to write about the world of competitions, tell you our views about comping, offer help to promoters and keep you up to date with what's happening at Loquax. We'll try and share one or two fun things with you as well. You're welcome to comment on any of the articles!
The advent competitions are now in full swing and we’re entering the second phase of 12 Days Of Christmas style giveaways. However, some compers have hit a problem with their advent comping on Facebook. Loquax user Atomic20 posted on the forums yesterday that they’d received a temporary block from liking pages on Facebook. The block […]
Regulars to Loquax will know by now that there are two sides to the Lucky Duck. There’s the original competition side of things and there’s the bingo and gambling side of things. We try and keep the two apart because traditionally compers aren’t fans of bingo. However, once in a while the two worlds collide […]
Every now and then we spot a competition which is worthy of featuring on our blog post. Whilst tweeting a few comps we spotted that The National Lottery were looking for people to be a “mega prize mega tester”. To take part in this competition you need to tell them about your #MegaMoment. WANTED: Adventure-seeking […]
Facebook has played a massive role in changing how competitions work online. However, one thing they’ve not been good at it stopping fake competitions manifesting themselves across the network. Most regular compers will probably already know how to spot a fake Facebook competition – they’re often too good to be true (100 iPhones to be […]
Over the years we’ve seen comping move to many different formats such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. However one area we’ve not really focused on is mobile apps. There are a handful of apps that you can use on a regular basis and have the chance to win a prize. Back in 2015 we mentioned […]
We’ve been doing a bit of a spring clean on the Loquax Blog. Although it’s not received as much attention in recent years, there’s still a lot of competition blog content within it’s four virtual walls. Some of it is probably still relevant today whilst other bits and pieces are just nice for nostalgia. One […]
Getting creative and low entry competitions are currently the on trend things to do if you’re going to give yourself the best chance to win a prize. With so many prize draws now swamped with entries it’s probably not a bad idea to seek out the comps that require a bit of effort. The only […]
We thought it was high time to do another blog update. There are a few things that we’ve spotted in and around the comping world and Loquax that deserve a mention, but perhaps don’t warrant a full blown blog post. So here’s a bit of a round up of things that have caught our eye […]
The word ‘bingo’ makes a lot of compers run in the opposite direction but we’ve found a game that may well appeal. When we stumbled across Krispy Kreme Bingo we naturally assumed that the donut specialists were following in the footsteps of Woolworths, Ann Summers and Iceland. Those three well known high street stores run […]
