Facebook - make sure you actually ENTER the competitions!

How often  does this happen...... you are looking at your Facebook news feed and a friend's share of a competition pops up in front of you. You'd like to enter the competition, so you click on Like and Share, and maybe add a comment. And hey presto..... you HAVEN'T entered the comp! All you've done is like, share and comment on your friend's share of it. How on earth is the promoter supposed to know you've done that? It's your friend who gets the notification of your interaction, while the promoter gets nothing and sees nothing.

You always, always ALWAYS need to do your liking, sharing and commenting on the promoter's original post. Otherwise you're simply wasting your time!

If you find the idea hard to understand, think about it like entering a postcard competition from a magazine. Let's take Prima as an example. There are always lots of postcard competitions in it, which are usually entered by sending a postcard to their handling house. Your friend might buy a copy of Prima and enter the competitions then pass on her copy of the magazine to you. (OK, it could be HIS copy, I'm not being sexist here but it is classed as a woman's magazine!)

You then decide to enter the postcard competitions. Would you address the postcards to the friend who had given you the magazine? Of course you wouldn't, you'd send them to Prima, just as she had done!

So if you are ever confused about what you should be liking, sharing and commenting on on Facebook (or retweeting on Twitter, or repining on Pinterest) just think of the postcard analogy to remind you that only entries sent directly to the promoter will reach the promoter!

Win £500 cash or a blind of your choice

Blinds UK have a great new competition, giving you a chance to win £500 cash, with 5 runners up winning a blind of their choice. Simply visit their competition page and enter using the Rafflecopter widget. The closing date is April 19th.

My hamper competition - results and feedback

I wonder why it is that so many people think people running competitions using Rafflecopter won't actually check the entries? I know lots of bloggers find that same thing - that lots of people will click on "I commented" or "I tweeted" without actually bothering to comment or tweet.

Well, if you are guilty of this, you simply won't win! Do you know that at the end of the competition, Rafflecopter provides the person who ran it with a detailed Excel spreadsheet giving the full details of every entry, so that it is easy to see at a glance EXACTLY what every entrant did? And that it also gives the IP address of every entry, so that people who cheat with multiple IDs are easy to spot?

When I drew a winner for my recent hamper competition, the first name drawn was from somebody who said they had commented. But there was no comment from anyone of that name. So, trying to be completely fair, I thought they may have commented anonymously or even using a different name. Their entry had been made at a rather odd time, 1.30 in the morning - and on the day in question, I didn't have a single comment between 9.30 the previous night and 7.30 that morning. So no comment..... NO PRIZE.

I drew a second name. This person said that they had tweeted. But instead of pasting the URL of the tweet into the space provided for it, they had typed a begging letter telling me how much they loved breakfast cereal but couldn't afford to buy it!!!! No tweet..... NO PRIZE.

But third time lucky - the next name I drew was Nikki Kay Reynolds who had commented, followed and Tweeted and had done all three correctly and verifiably, so the prize goes to her. Many congratulations Nikki - I have sent your details on to Mornflake who will be sending your hamper.

And many thanks to all of you who entered, especially for the delicious sounding cereal toppings you suggested. I'm going to give lots of them a try - until now my imagination has only extended to bananas and blueberries! Some of them are going to be a bit of a challenge though..... I'm still trying to work out how to spread Nutella on my cornflakes.....

Win one of three chicken keeping books

Chicken keeping is getting very fashionable and I must say, the thought of fresh eggs every day is very tempting, although the urban fox problem around here means that everyone I know locally who has kept chickens has lost them.

But those of you who are considering it might find the book "So you want to start Keeping Chickens?" useful. And there are three copies of it to be won over at Chickens for Sale. Simply visit the competition page and enter through the Rafflecopter form by the closing date of April 18th.

Win a keyboard, music lessons and more

Decplay are giving away a wonderful prize worth £500  - a keyboard, FastPlay+ course, song sheets and online coaching from their founder.

DecPlay is a new piano tuition method and form of music notation that reduces the time taken to learn to play the piano - DecPlay's mission is to engage 1 million people in playing the piano.
The method was devised by Declan Cosgrove who is a classically trained pianist. Declan believes the traditional way of teaching and the focus on prescribing each note and rhythm, restricts some people's natural creativity, delays the point at which the student feels a sense of achievement and contributes to the huge number of people who stop learning before they can play to a level that gives them and others enjoyment.  The method is ideally suited to popular music (as well as classical) and uses numbers and patterns to produce amazing results incredibly quickly.
All readers of Competition Grapevine need to do to enter the competition is to go to the DecPlay Piano Facebook page - Click on their Facebook 'Competition' tab ( to get your free song sheet and chance to win the £500 ($830) piano learning prize: keyboard, FastPlay+ course, Song sheet pack and 3 hours of online coaching by the founder of DecPlay!  The closing date for the competition is Monday 31st March 2014.
