SP Xtra: Editor's Blog

Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

World Book Day competitions 2017

 

Those of you with little people in your life will know all about World Book Day. Most schools celebrate with fancy dress with your child heading in to school dressed up as their favourite character from a book. And for all us compers this can also mean bagging a win! So parents, grandparents, older siblings, aunts and uncles get your camera poised as most World Book Day comps will require a pic!

 

The majority of ‘creative’ World Book Day comps will do the rounds on the actual day itself; keep a beady eye on social media and use the hashtag #WorldBookDay which will help search out any promotions. And most will just require a photo upload of your little person to enter the competition.

 

The actual World Book Day website has lots of prize draws too that require no effort other than submitting your details; so hop on over to get your entries in.

 

Have fun and good luck! Don’t forget to share any winning entries with us via our Facebook page as any we publish on our website will bag a tenner.

Tuesday Talk! (And a little prize draw!)

 

There are always hundreds of EOM (end of month) comps doing the rounds and I just wondered how many of you managed to be organised enough to do them? Every month I tell myself to start entering them in the middle of the month by doing a few each day so I’m not so inundated on the last day, but I never do! So tonight I’ll be settling down as early as I can and ploughing my way through as many as I can. (Vowing to myself that things will be different next month, ha ha!)

 

I tend to be quite organised with my comping routine but the EOM stuff just beats me every time. My main comping time is in the evenings but I do try and sneak some dailies in through the day if I can. I concentrate on staying a few days ahead of the closing dates so I can have an evening off every weekend and I keep a spreadsheet of wins to track prizes.

 

So, how do you organise your comping? I’d love to hear from you and I’d like to post the best tips on our Facebook page to help other compers get their game into gear! So you can either post on our wall  or email me at: info@oxonpress.co.uk. And at the end of the month I’ll choose my favourite to win a little something.
