Offline Competitions – What are they and how can I win?
Offline competitions are competitions or contests that are run without the need to access the internet. The most popular channels of offline competitions are text-in, phone-in and postcard entries.
With so many people having access to the internet these days, it seems a bit “backwards” to run such competitions. However, many “compers” believe they have a bigger chance of grabbing a prize by entering offline.
Why? Because it takes more effort and sometimes more cost to make a phone call, text, or to buy a book of stamps and a book of postcards to enter than to type a name, email and hit enter. Chances are, promoters will receive a lot less entries by post or phone than online.
