Brand New :)

Firstly hi everyone! 
I am completely new to this I am an ex matched better who wanted a new hobby and I came across this!
I have set up a new email, insta and twitter which I’ve never had before!
I have the hours daily to put in some good grind but I’m wondering whether my strategy is correct? I’ve been using the main comp page and filtering the comps by end date ticking the ones I’ve done is it that easy or am I missing something?
Ive seen some sites allow multiple entries what’s the best way to organise this?
thanks so much for any advice x

    Hi there!

    unlike matched betting the returns from comping can be few and far between, wins can be very small or can be great, it’s all down to luck!

    yes a lot of people enter by end date, so that method sounds good if it works for you. And yes, it’s that easy hahaha

    as for your multiple entry do you mean daily comps or ones on Instagram etc?

    I have created a "Dailies" folder in my bookmarks where I put the comps I need to enter each day

  • Hi!!! Thanks for replying! That was my first post so I’ve no idea how to reply directly so I hope you both see this.
    i was match betting for almost 4 years but stopped in November. 
    I’ve seen a few dailies cosmopolitan type mags and the chat mags all seem to have daily entry ones is there a seperate thread for them or do I just need to be writing them down somewhere that I need to go back 🤣 it feels very much like match betting in that there’s a whole world out there to learn and become a part of

    Ok, so if you’re in the swing of entering the main board and you’re ready to take on the daily comps then click on the “regular competitions” near the top of the main board.

    there is a daily competition thread where (same as granny biker) I bookmark the ones I want to enter each day.

    then there is the “magazine dailies” which is the cosmopolitan etc ones you mentioned.
    I go through each mag and entered the ones I want to each day, you quickly memorise the answers to the questions.

    Also the click to win sites are listed in “regular competitions” which are more magazine dailies but with no questions. It’s virtually impossible to get everything done each day, but always nice to have options.

    if you have anymore questions feel free to ask, we all help each other, I feel that the more you help others and also post competitions you see then the more good comping karma will come your way ❤️

  • I have all the dailies in a folder on my bookmarks toolbar. I just drag and drop the mse links into it for the ones I want to enter.

    I also have a Mag dailies folder and in that folder I have sub folders for each of the daily mags and do the same with those dragging and dropping the links into whichever folder they belong. I find that easier as my memory is terrible at the moment so I have the answers there.

    I used to be an end dater but now I enter daily as they appear on here. I do find it so much easier doing it that way especially as I no longer need to contend with the end of months.

    I also have a folder for any like the take a breaks if I don't feel like doing them straight away. I also have a folder for social media ones. I bookmark all of those and just go through those by date.

    Welcome @kissthestars88
    I don't know much about match betting but I adore comping and have for quite some time now, the forum here used to be buzzing and I made some great friendships, sadly the forum has gotten a lot quieter since the forum 'make-over' but I hope you enjoy it here and those of us still here or new here, can help get it back and enjoy it! 

    Sounds like you have a good plan and if it works for you, then great! But yes, tick those you've entered, also nice to hit the Comp-liment buttons (which used to be a thanks button, so it thanks the poster, which they can't see unless they go back to that post, but it helps them see how many people may have entered from their post and making it a little more worth it.)
    Then you can mark them as skipped if you don't or can't enter certain ones.

    As for daily entries, I try my best to enter once only competitions mainly, as we all have a fair chance. Even though you can enter a competition once and someone could put all the work in every day, and the person who entered least could win. I just personally feel my time is better used entering more competitions, rather than putting lots of entries into one, unless I really want the prize or if I've done a lot of competitions and want to focus on some multiple entries. But we all work differently.

    If you want to reply directly to someone on the forum for them to get a notification, if it isn't their thread, then you can just put the (at) sign in front of their name and it will tag them in. Like I have above :smile:

    Unfortunately this site only posts mag dailies once now, so you'd have to bookmark the pages if you wanted to remember to enter them again and work your way down the list, so you know what you've entered.

    Welcome to the forum again and I hope to see you around! You are welcome to join the Compers Challenge 2022! it always add lots to my comping experience and there are some great people over there! :wink:       
    (You won't be able to edit your list until you unlock editing your posts on the forum, but that will come in time, around 10-20 posts)

    Never feel afraid to ask anything here or my inbox is always open. If anyone asks you to change anything in your posts (If you are posting competitions for instance, as it is good to share!) then please don't take it to heart, it is just to help you learn and to help it run smoothly for everyone too.

    Have an awesome day!
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.
