March competitions round-up

There are lots of competitions online, but some do have strings attached - you are signed up to persistent marketing emails or boring, useless newsletters. I recently entered a competition from a holiday operator and after getting the catalogue, I was harrassed via phone and email for several weeks to book a holiday with them, which really put me off even looking at their catalogue.

In this day and age, I'm surprised some companies still think that giving leads (that's us, the competition's entrants) the hard sell will generate sales. We are all aware that a competition is a way to get emails of prospective customers but a pushy approach is guaranteed to turn people off. It just reminds me of pushy encyclopaedia sellers knocking at my mother's door in the 1980s.

Rant over, here is my pick of competitions:

B-Smart Britax pushchair

Knoll House Hotel
A Butlins' holiday

Good luck! 

See you in April for another round-up of competitions!

About this post: this is an editorial feature - no money nor goods exchanged hands. If you want me to feature a competition as a sponsored post, I am fine with it, but I will have to declare the sponsor.
