Facebook for Compers - Handy Hints & Tips

Submitted by tpf_kirsty on Mon, 2014-04-21 13:50

So, the Easter Bank Holiday is over, most of the children are back to school - time to get back to the important job of comping again!  It has been a while since we did a blog focusing on Facebook, so I thought it might be a good time to remind people about some useful hints and tips to use when entering Facebook comps, as well as some Dos and Don’ts!

So... who won?

One of the most frustrating things about competitions is when we don’t hear who won. Unfortunately there are lots of scam prize promotions around, in particular on Facebook, and it’s not surprising that we're suspicious if a company refuses to name the winner of their latest comp.

Don't let comping ruin your Facebook friendships!

Comping on Facebook can be a very anti-social hobby for your friends that aren't interested – in fact some friends get so annoyed that lots of compers are driven to setting up a second account just for comping! This is against Facebook terms of use though, and you could get both your accounts shut down so it's not worth the risk.

READ THE RULES is one of the best pieces of advice we can give to a comper. However, it's also a great piece of advice for a promoter too. It's incredibly important to get the Terms and Conditions right first time – and increasingly, promoters are failing to do this.

Have you noticed lots more competitions popping up on Pinterest lately? They make a refreshing change from the Facebook Like & Shares or the one click Roboform entries, and as they have much lower entry numbers they can be a great source of prizes for those with a bit of time and imagination!
