Competitions - The Book - 3rd Edition Stories

I'm extremely excited to announce that Competitions - The Book's 3rd Edition is almost ready to be launched.

Changes to the 1st and 2nd Edition are significant, with extra winning tips, and one special new one that I want you to try.

There have been a number of books written on the subject of competitions, and countless articles. So, why do I think Competitions - The Book stands out?

I believe it helps that I'm an industry insider, and not a comper. I don't give a lot of opinions, I observe numbers and activities.

Looking back at the emails received over the past eight years, I'm even more confident that Competitions - The Book will produce even more winners. Sure, comping is a fun activity, but actually winning stuff makes it a bit more interesting.

I'll keep you posted on the launch date, but in the meantime feel free to comment on what 'Competitions - The Book' has done for your comping. I'd love to hear from you!

Yours Comp-letely,

Craig Seitam 13/11/16


Keep trying!
Don't give up, and think you won't win
Keep on trying, and you will grin!

Keep Entering
It's a game of skill, luck, chance.
But you never know when you will win.
Me I've won a few things. And am always on the lookout for that next competition. Do get annoyed when I buy something and comp is already finished but that is the luck of the draw. You win some and lose some.

Stay Positive
I learnt to stay positive, enter small comps as people tend not to bother with them so more chances of winning, don't be scared to give 25 words or less comps a go and take your time with your entry as you only have one go.

By encouraging me to keep entering no matter what the outcome of the previous competition was. As you never know what judge your answer may appeal to, or when your name may be randomly chosen, just keep entering and giving yourself the chance.

Persistance, originality and efforts ARE rewarded!
I have only read the first edition of the book, (a friend's "borrowed" it forever) but l have learnt to keep trying, be original/quirky in responding to 25 words or less comps and keep receipts for products bought. I've kept a "log book" of all the prizes l've won and l've filled an exercise book! 😆
