Tips On Earning Money By Joining Australian Competitions

Posted on: 15th March 2013

Australian CompetitionHave you heard about ‘comping’ professionals? This is just a small group of people who enter competitions and prize draws on a regular basis that it does not only become their hobby but part of their lifestyle. And believe it or not, they actually win stuff, even mind-boggling cash gifts and rewards that you don’t think you’d get for free.

Of course, it depends on the type of Australian competition you would join into and the kind of prizes that are at stake. From coupons and concert tickets to gadgets, cars, and holidays – there is a plethora of free things companies and organizations over the Internet are willing to give away. And did I mention a wadful of cash, if you’re lucky? You just need to learn what to do in order to be like one of those comping professionals.

The right place to look for

At any given time, there are over 2,000 online competitions in Australia which you can enter to win anything. Take time to read the competitions guide to make sure that it is legit and worth entering in. Stay away from sites that ask for sensitive personal info or financial details.

The motive behind the contest

If you need to make a purchase before entering the competition, then the site probably wants to have you as a customer first rather than just win a prize from its competition. Read its terms and conditions so you can have a heads-up of what to expect.

Eye on the prize

With so many online competitions out there, what is your ultimate desire? Do you want to win an ipad? Win a holiday? Or win cash? Focus on the ones that you really want to get. But if you win something you really are not interested in, it only gives you the opportunity to put it up for sale and earn instant money.

Free vs. paid

You’d rather stick with free competitions Australia if you’re just starting in the business of comping. After you get some great stuff, then it is reasonable enough to invest some form of amount if that is what it takes to win.

Easy vs. complicated

By complicated, it doesn’t mean that you have to give essay-worthy answers or wait for weeks before the task is complete. It is just like this: contests that require a little effort are the ones that really count. There is nothing wrong with collecting a certain amount of tokens from a particular product for you to be able to get the reward. But when it requires you to scout different shops and buy different products – then the amount of effort you put into doing that or the willingness to go through all of it – makes it worth it.

Stick to the rules

More often than not, entrants do not even pass through the initial stage simply because they did not read all the necessary details for the competition. Never ignore the small print. Read the rules and stick to it. It might be your only edge to win that coveted prize.
