The Loquax 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!
In recent times we've looked at Automated Competition Entry Services that are swamping online competitions with entries! We've been investigating this issue and have useful information for promoters, including emails to look out for and how to avoid giving prizes to people who don't even visit their site.
We've also been looking at comping on both Facebook and Twitter and have blogged about FB cheats and also written a quick guide to Twitter comps. Don't forget to follow Loquax on both Facebook and Twitter

In case you hadn’t realised, Loquax runs the giveaway site over at www.prizedraws.co.uk. We set it up a couple of years ago as a fun giveaway site. Our aim was to simply offer you guys the chance to win some slightly different prizes plus it gave us a chance to plug some of other sites […]
Every now and then we get a lot of visitors to Loquax looking for “The Prize Directory”. Now we’ve used the phrase since we started 18 years ago to describe the page where you can search competitions by prize type… but that doesn’t help the searching visitors. What they are looking for is information because […]
It’s almost that most wonderful time of the year when advent competitions appear from every where. As we mentioned a few weeks back advent comps seem to have taken on a whole new meaning with anything festive and daily entry falling under the advent banner. Anyway the real things will start on the 1st December […]
It seems an age ago since the Loquax Team embarked on revamping the way your forum posts appeared as competition listings. What started out as a “shouldn’t take too long job” has taken a little bit longer than anticipated. However we hope you think it’s been worthwhile and thank you for being patient. With the […]
