Not content with giving away a pile of cash every day, the folks behind the incredibly successful Free Postcode Lottery are about to launch another new daily free draw site. It’s called WinADinner.com and it will give participants the chance to win a free lunch every day. The site will open for business on the […]
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!
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve noticed an uplift in interest in “win a house” competitions. The reason for this comes down to a guy called Marco Robinson who is giving away a £120,000 fully-furnished and mortgage-free three-bedroom apartment to a suitable individual or family. First up, this particular offer has closed (ended 2nd […]
We’ve all seen competitions where you can win a year’s supply of a particular product. In the past, when we used to enter loads more competitions, we’ve won a year of tea (which turned out to be 300 teabags) and a year of beer (365 cans). However, a consumer’s view of what constitutes a “year […]
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 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 […]
