Online Contest: Myths, Facts & Tips (#Ohhsome Fest 2014)

As I posted in our facebook page, we were invited to be one of the speaker during the recent Ohhsome Fest by hotlink.

Initially, we planned to come together (Egg, Yolkie and I) but we happened to be travelling to Hong Kong a week before the event. Egg decided to stay home and take care of yolkie while I fly alone to KL for this event. 

The Ohhsome Fest was held in Avenue K (opposite KLCC) on the 13th - 14th December 2014. A handful of celeb bloggers and social media celebrities attended the event such as Jian from akiraceo, Pek Chek Kia from PCK, Ernest from Bro don't like that la bro, Kendrick from Kendylife, Cherane from Charchillies and even Cyril from Sarawak Bloggers.

We had a great time and giving a talk to public isn't as hard as I expected. In fact, it was quite fun to interact with the audiences! 

Here's that stuff I shared during my sharing session : Online Contest: Myths, Facts & Tips

I'm sure most of you know that we've been joining a lot of contest and we did win some from time to time (big and small). So I shall share some of my thoughts and maybe it could help you to win some online contests in the future.

Eventhough online contests were so common now, yet, there are still a lot of misconceptions about online contest. Here's the common "myths" and I see from people around me,

Well, not all online contests are gimmicks in fact, the chances of fake contest are so low that even I myself never encounter a fake contest. If the contest were organized by major brands, you can rest assure that they are real. 

As for the chances of winning, it pretty much depends on you effort rather than your luck. If you put in real efforts, winning isn't that hard actually.

In entering a contest is free, you should just go ahead since there aren't anything to lose. Probably it'll just take up some of your time. 

Let's do a breakdown of online contest,

To win a contest, you must choose the right contest to join! Here's what to join and what NOT to join!

Never join a "most like" contest as it only invites cheaters and spammers (unless you're one of them :P). Not only you'll waste your time, the winner of these type of contest will eventually be the same group of people over and over again. Why? They buy and share "likes". They can get more than thousands of "like" within hours. I bet even "Redpeople" can't beat them! 

As for Tag, Share and Win type, the chances are low and basically, it depends purely on luck and luck is never under our control.

The best contest with high chances of winning will be the "most creative" type!
The probability of winning is directly proportional with the efforts you put in. The more effort, the better the chance of winning!

Last but not least, here's the few steps that you can take to increase your chance of winning an online contest!

Sketchpoststudio did a great job in simplifying my whole speech into such a creative piece of work!

Thanks to all those who came and support, hope to see you guys again in the future! To those who missed my sharing session, let hope for more events like this in the future! :D

Stay #ohhsome!

The number will only continue to increase if the financial status of the people continues to deter especially when price of goods and daily needs continues to inflate.

All these crimes had been occurring regardless time and locations. You can be robbed when you go out for a morning jog. Your house might got broken into when you were just watering plants at your backyard. What more to say when nobody's at home during year end vacations period.

My AirAsia Free Seats!

If I had 10 AirAsia Free Seats, I would go to HONG KONG and I'd bring along my family and friends (my wife Egg, our son Little Yolkie, Egg's mom and dad, Egg's brother, 3 good friends and a lucky blog readers) - and here's why!

 We (Egg & Yolk) yearn to go Hong Kong for a long time ago. We love to watch Hong Kong drama. Hong Kong is an entertainment hub with lots of attractions.

After we have married in 2011, we have been so thrifty in spending to hope that we could travel to Hong Kong as soon as possible. When we got enough money to travel, Egg found out that she got little Yolkie in her tummy.

We have used up all our "Hong Kong trip's fund" to welcome little Yolkie. (Buying diapers, milk powder, bedding, clothing, insurance, stroller, baby seat, medication, vaccination, baby food, etc...)

We had to start funding our trip again and I'm not sure how long will it takes until we have enough money. Even if we managed to get all the funding, bringing a baby along isn't as easy as you think.

If only we are given 10 free seats from AirAsia,
With all these members, we can hop around Hong Kong without any restrictions.

Airasia... Hope you can make our dream come true. We love Airasia. Everyone can fly
