WINNING RADIO CONTESTS
Do you always say, "I never win anything"? Winning radio contests may be
your answer to a change in your "luck". LUCK! Did I say, "luck". It is not about
being lucky. It is not about being in the right place at the right time. It is
not even about being frugal, but it is frugal entertainment. It
takes a simple technique that I will share with you. I know the secret for winning
these contests and you will get it for free before you finish reading.
Have I won any good prizes? Is $1000 a good prize. I won that amount twice,
and my wife has won it once. Do we go to concerts? Yes, we go to quite a few.
In fact I have NEVER paid to get into a concert. I have been winning radio contests
to get my concert tickets. Have you been to the MTV Music Awards and been front
row? My wife and I have compliments of winning a radio contest. We were in the
nose bleed section, way up high, for the American Music Awards, but it was still
an exciting evening. Winning radio contests does not always get you the best seats,
but it does get you into some great events.
Our list goes on and on. Did I mention the trip to Hawaii? Oh, we won that
too along with $1000 spending cash to be sure we enjoyed the week in paradise.
Winning radio contests can mean dream vacations to fabulous places.

Do you have to have some special calling devices for winning radio contests? Do you have to bribe the
DJ's into picking you? NO, there is nothing like that at all. What you need
is a telephone, preferably with a re-dial function.

My wife and I are country music fans. We have seen 37 different performers and
some of them more than once FREE because of tickets we got from calling in on
the radio and winning radio contests.
We have also been to a rap concert, seen Guy and Dan Fogleberg. Disneyland,
6 Flags Magic Mountain, Knott's Berry Farm, Universal Studios and Sea World
are the major attractions we have won ticket to.
Call me lucky? I hope not. I am seldom lucky at anything. I do not win
in Las Vegas. I have not won on the lottery. Put my name in a hat and it will
not be pulled.........well usually not. Winning radio contests is not about
luck. You can never have won anything in your life and if you do what I tell
you, you will win on radio contests. No tricks, no gimmicks, just straight forward
How do I do it? Here are the details. First, obviously, you have to
listen to the radio so you hear when they announce a contest to call in for.
Second, you have to have access to a telephone when they announce the contest
and ask you to call in. Some employers will not let you listen to the radio
and most are not going to let you use their phones to call radio stations. HOWEVER,
some place will let you.
You have probably heard you radio station announce a contest for a prize of some
sort. Money, dinner at a local restaurant, a car. You just never call in. You
figure, "It is not real people who win". You think the odds are against
you ever winning. You tried calling in once or twice a couple years ago and did
not win anything. Why bother? Let me tell you "Why Bother?". You can
Here is exactly how step by step
1. Pay attention to what contests are on various radio station you listen to.
2. If they announce a special song to listen for or a specific time they will
ask for callers, write it down
3. When it is a time, set your watch or cell phone alarm to go off 10 or 15
minutes before the contest is scheduled. Sometime if it is a song they will
tell you in what hour of the day it will play.
4. When you hear the request to call in , CALL and CALL and CALL and CALL.
Keep calling back as fast as you can every time you hear a busy signal. Winning radio contests requires you to keep calling. Do not give up. Some
stations want caller 10 and some want caller 100. My rule is to call until I
hear them announce the winner. I do not always follow that rule. You learn how
different stations and different DJ's work. Some are fast. As fast as they can
they get to caller 10. Others wait a little to start picking up for caller 1
and take a little more time to get to caller 10.
5. CALL and CALL and CALL and CALL. Keep calling back as fast as you
can every time you hear a busy signal. Did you just read that? I have just give
you the BIGGEST "secret" for winning radio contests. It is simple
persistence. You need to treat this like a hobby. A fun hobby that pays you
in gifts, prizes, cash and wonderful things.
6. PERSISTENCE!! That not only applies to when you are calling, but
also applies to how often you call. You need to call every time you can. If
you are listening to the radio and are near a phone you need to be PLANNING
on calling in every time you hear a contest announced.
You are going to be calling sometime and hear the phone ring and be so busy
re-dialing and re-dialing that you will re-dial on a ring instead of a busy
signal. I did that just the other day and I KNOW I had to be at just about the
right caller based on my timing. DRATS!!
Is there more than persistence in winning radio contests. Yes, but this is persistence too. You need
to know you radio stations rules and when they announce contests. Some stations
will announce the "song of the day" every morning at 7:15. If you
listen at 7:15 you will know the hour they will play the song. Throughout the
day they announce the name of the song to listen for and when you hear it call
in to win. HOWEVER they only announce the hour it plays once. If you do not
get it, you have to pay attention all day to get a chance to call in. If you
listened, you only have to listen to that station for that one hour.
Can you listen to more than one radio station and win on more than one.
OF COURSE you can. I used to listen to 3 stations that would announce their
give away hour at 7:10 in the morning. I would listen to one station, have someone
else listening to another and have a third radio on with a portable tape recorder
recording what they said at 7:10. Three stations and three chances of winning.
Of course you have to follow the rules for winning radio contests. Some say you can only win once a month,
some once every 60 days. Some say you can win as many times as you want. Some
say you can only win the $1000 once a year.
As you listen to the phone dialing and getting busy signals, sometimes in large
calling areas you will also get a message that, "all lines are busy, please
try your call later". Later is immediately. Also you will learn to tell
the tiny tone that precedes this message and you can hang up and re-dial before
you even hear the message. Pay attention if you often get this message. Do not
let if bother you and give up because so many are calling in. I was in the Los
Angeles area when I won the $10,000 and you can imagine how many must have been
calling in for that prize.
It should be obvious to you that a phone with re-dial makes it a lot faster
to dial, dial, dial. Dial, dial, dial and start winning radio contests. The faster you re-dial the more chances
you have of winning. Cell phones are a little slow on re-dial, but you can still
win even on you cell phone. I hear people winning using cell phones all the
Here are a few more tips.
If you have two phones, learn to dial in on both phones at the same time. You
double your odds of winning. I often call in on our land line and my wife is
dialing on her cell phone. I used to have two land lines and have one phone
in each ear dialing radio contests.
Be sure you have the radio station programmed into you preset phone numbers
so you can just push a button and it is immediately dialing the station. After
that hit re-dial until you win. I use to have at least six different radio stations
phone numbers preprogrammed for ready use. These days I am in a slow area for
contests so do not get as excited as I used to. PLUS, the prizes here are usually
pretty small, but we still keep winning the little prizes.
OK, I do have ONE MORE secret to tell you about winning radio contests.
It is the phone I use. No, it is not a magic bullet phone that slam dials faster
than any phone on the market. It is a common phone with a feature that allows
you to manually re-dial a number very quickly. You may even have this phone and
not know about this little "trick". The phone I use is a Panasonic with
FLASH and RE-DIAL buttons. The way faster dialing works on this phone is you initially
dial the number and if you get a busy signal you hit FLASH and as soon as you
hear the dial tone, you hit RE-DIAL Keep pressing FLASH -- RE-DIAL for as long
as you get a busy signal. It helps make winning radio contests easier, but any
redial phone will work, just not quite as fast.
That is it. I wish you the best of luck winning radio contests. I hope
you get some big ones and lots of little ones to keep your interest peaked.
Winning radio contests is really easy now that you have all of my secrets.
