Some compers love statistics and will keep records of every comp entered, prize won etc. Others will use a clicker to count every comp they’ve entered too. Whilst we suspect those who do that kind of rigorous book keeping will continue with their totting up methods we have come up with a cunning plan to help others keep an eye on “the numbers” with some cool tracker stats.
When we brought in the new system our initial decision was to just show alphabetically comps entered and ignored – but a request was made for a running total of comps entered month to month. But with so many comps available to enter we felt that “X Competitions Entered” didn’t really give you any idea of what you’ve been doing.
So we’ve put in a few more stats – and as far as we’re aware no other site has done anything similar.
As well as showing you the total number of competitions entered (or ignored) we also break down the number of entries by prize category and by competition type. This is cool because it will highlight the type of prizes you’ve been chasing and the type of comps you’ve been entering (or ignoring). If you’re after a holiday but find you’re only entering a couple of promos then you know to up your game.
It may well be that last month you did a load of Facebook entries but had little success – so going forward you may want to focus on other types of comps. Similarly under the ignore option you may be ignoring 100s of Rafflecopters – which is fine, but with that in mind it may be better to opt to “hide the competitions” rather than use the ignore so much.
This section will give you information on comps you’ve selected to ignore and stats to go with them. Note that this is for comps which are live only. You can un-ignore them or mark them entered if you require.
This section will give you information on comps you’ve selected to mark as entered (using the duck) and stats to go with them. Note that the listings will show comps which are live only. However the comp/prize stats will reflect the last couple of months.
This section will give you information on comps you’ve selected to mark as entered (using the duck) and stats to go with them. These comps will have closed. However the comp/prize stats will reflect the last couple of months.
Hopefully these numbers will prove useful to you and give you a useful insight into your comping activity.
