Long before the days of Facebook, Google, Apple, Twitter and Tinder there came Loquax. Twenty very long years ago, myself and Kirsty, sat down and cobbled together our first version of the website. As today is our anniversary we’ve been looking back at old versions of the site courtesy of Wayback.org. Not only do they […]
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!
It’s now five years – yes five years – since Loquax evolved into a competition listing service where the comps are predominantly posted by the community. Back in 2013 the site was given little or no chance of survival. A “dinosaur” of a site ready for extinction as one person put it. However, thanks to […]
Now that Christmas is over that means it’s all systems go for Easter! Chocolate Eggs are already in stores and Cadbury have announced that Creme Egg Hunting Season is back. Now usually that wouldn’t be such a big deal as Creme Eggs seem to be in store for 12 months of the year these days […]
Facebook have announced that they’re making changes to their algorithm in order to fight what they regard as “engagement bait”. The examples that they give on their blog include vote baiting using the like, love, hate emojis; react baiting where you like or love a post depending on the question and share baiting. The example […]
2017 will go down as the year that win a house competitions made their comeback. It all kicked off with Melling Manor which resulted in Marie Seager from Warrington taking ownership of the property worth £800,000 as a result of a £2 ticket. Since then countless other properties have been added to our win a […]
Although it’s only a couple of days before the start of December, advent competitions are already starting to build up and some have already started. Back in the day the start of advent season was an exciting one as we’d go off in search of the competitions. These days it’s a lot less stressful as […]
Our look at house competitions definitely attracts quite a bit of attention. The latest comes from a brand new service which hopes to take advantage of the current interest in win a house raffles by giving away a dream home and by offering would-be sellers the opportunity to use their competition platform. The service is […]
Earlier this month we told you about a handful of new additions to the Win A House competitions list here on Loquax. Entry to these competitions varies from £2 to £6 – which when compared to the 2008 range of raffles is quite reasonable. However there have been two new additions to the list this […]
Whilst writing about the car competition that’s currently running at Bingoport we popped into Get Me A Ticket to see how many motors they were offering to entrants. To our surprise we discovered that the site has closed it’s doors. All the giveaways have now ended and there’s a statement on the site explaining that […]
Car competitions used to be quite popular, but these days it’s quite rare to find many promotions where you can win a brand new motor. Even sites like MyOffers now only offer a couple of car competitions – whilst on a side note we’ve just seen that Get Me A Ticket have closed their doors. […]
