If something goes wrong, or doesn’t work, what should I do?

Try again!  Sometimes the best way to fix a problem is to try it again. If it still doesn’t work after multiple attempts, try holding down the shift button on your keyboard and pushing the reload button on your browser. This resets the cache in your web browser, which will often clear up persistent problems.  If this method still doesn’t work, quit your browser, reopen it, and try again. Some modifications may also take up to 15 minutes to go into effect on our servers.  If the problem still persists, contact us.

Can I use Kompster for my business or for commercial purposes?

Absolutely.  We encourage businesses to list their events on Kompster.com.  The more competitions, the better.

How do I get people to see my listing?

Once you’ve created your listing, its up to you to share the link for your event through Facebook, Twitter, email and other social media outlets.  Tell everyone you know that you’ve just posted your event on Kompster, the #1 site for competitions.

We encourage you to find other people who share your interests and leave comments on other event pages you like.  This may help your event appear as a related event when users view similar events. The more you interact with the community by liking and commenting on their posts, the more inclined they’ll be to return the favor.

Listings also appear on the Discover page where visitors are able to sort and filter criteria to display events.  The more information you include with your listing, the better the filters will work thus getting your event in front of more people.

Looking for a boost?  We also offer Featured Listings as a premium service that you can purchase by the week or month.

What is a Featured Listing?

Our featured listings are a combination of listings selected by staff or as a premium service that you can pay for to get your event in front of more people.  Purchasing a premium listing will land your event in the slider on our homepage and blasts to our social media outlets.  Our staff also features competitions that they feel show what Kompster is all about.  To use the premium featured listing service, log in, open your event and select edit competition> add premium services on your event page.  Featured listings are available for purchase by the week or month.  Prices for premium features are subject to change.
