I love it when my tenacity pays off on competitions, I can see all the issues involved with voting/referral comps, but there are a few compers like me and Leona Fisher. We just cannot help getting involved with them, and try to help each other gain votes, luckily the only comp of this type, we have both entered had 10 winners, so we could still help each other, We get a bit of stick for being voting comp lovers but sometimes it pays off and I have skin like a rhino so the good well out weighs the bad.
This was a referral comp, whoever referred the most people to view a video on the Butlins comp was the winner. With the Drayton manor comp it was the top 5 referrers.
I made extra effort with the Butlins comp, harassing and posting daily, I know people get fed up of me badgering for help on comps but I am happy to help them back, I do luckily have quite a few loyal helpers always on hand when I need them.
There was no way of knowing other peoples figures so no idea how well I was doing, when the comp ended I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best, I had bothered every person I knew so couldnt possible have got any more referrals so knew I had tried my best.
I was absolutely delighted when I got 2 emails on closure day to say I had won both comps, I had a bit of a scary time when my reply was bouncing, after a few tweets and facebook messages I finally managed to confirm I had received the emails.
So delighted, my tenacity and obsessive nature does occasionally pay off 🙂
