dealdash pic tips

Taking great pictures is an important skill to have, especially if you want to win 1,000 bids from DealDash in the weekly contest.

Have you been entering the DealDash photo contest to win 1,000 bids? This is a contest that happens every week, and the winners are always ecstatic to win. That’s about $150 in free bids! DealDash has this contest weekly as a “thank you” to their loyal customers. Read on for some ways to improve your chances to win by taking excellent pictures.

How’s Your Lighting?

One of the key aspects for taking a great photo of yourself is to be sure that your lighting is adequate. You’ll want to Be sure that there is excellent lighting in your home, or take your item outside to take the pictures. Make sure that the light is focused onto you and the item, and that there are no shadows covering you. However, having natural light is best so waiting for a nice bright day might work in your favor.

Have a Backdrop

Another way to make your wins really “pop” is to set up a backdrop. This doesn’t have to be anything expensive or complicated, even just hanging a plain neutral colored sheet behind you would do the trick. Try using gray, cream, or beige for the best pictures.

Post it on Facebook

After you have taken your photo of yourself with your win navigate to the DealDash Facebook page which is here, and “Like” it. Then you can post your picture to get free bids. Here are the instructions from DealDash detailing the instructions how to get free bids from Facebook:

1. Select an item you have won on DealDash to feature in the photo.

2. Take a high-quality photo clearly showing yourself and the item you won.

3. Send your best-looking photo to [email protected] and add a description which should include the following information: the item name, retail price, how much you paid for the item and a personal comment about the win as well. For example: “I got this $879 flatware set on@DealDash. I paid just $9.02 and used 109 bids! Thanks DealDash, they look nice in my kitchen”

4. In the end of the caption, please include the following sentence and the link (See the picture below):

You can see all of these instructions and guidelines on the DealDash Facebook page here.

And the Unofficial Rules

Other than great lighting, here are a few other tips to help you take great photos of yourself and your DealDash wins:

  • Take the item out of the packaging so it’s easier to see.
  • If the item needs to be put together, like a bike, then do that before taking the picture.
  • If it’s a small item hold it up close to your face.
  • If it’s a larger item such as exercise equipment try to get someone else to take the picture for you so you can either sit on it or crouch down so you and the item are on the same level.
  • Make sure that your pics are CLEAR! There’s nothing worse than a blurry out of focus dark picture where you can barely even tell what the item is that you are trying to display.

The Social Scene at DealDash

So, you’ve been poking around the DealDash site for sometime, and you’re branching out for information to help you win.  There is a lot of information you could find on the internet.  I started just searching the web, but what I found was these aren’t people who know the site.  I vowed to make my own decisions about bidding at DealDash, and I found the DealDash blogs to be the most helpful.  There are some really good tips and that’s like money in the bank!

As well, the Social Scene at DealDash is alive and well, and on the DealDash Facebook page you can see actual players who’ve really won prizes!   There, players share what they won and how much they paid for it.  You can see their smiles and track wins of other players.  It’s an anonymous system, what ever your name is on Facebook is what the players see.  No ones username is revealed…..that is, unless you want to.

DealDash even rewards players with free bids for sharing photos of their wins.  All you need to do to claim the free bids is to snap a photo of you with your win, you can post up to once a week and earn up to 350 bids for your photo.  The number of free bids is determined by the retail value of the prize you won.   If your win is less than $99, you will receive 30 free bids,  $99-$198 is 225 free bids, and $199 and up you will receive 350 free bids.  One player a week will also win 1000 for the “Best Photo of the Week” contest.  Each Monday they post the win on the Facebook page.  They also post it on the DealDash main page, where you’ll find it at the bottom of the page listed with the blogs.

Make the picture entertaining, they really like a “bust” type shot with the item front and center.  It helps if you smile!  They also like it when you have the item in use.  Take a clear, non-blurry picture.  Try not to use a flash if possible.  If your item is really big, try to get the whole item in the photo from a distance.

Here is a great example of what makes a winning photo.

The Facebook Page is a fun place to see other people, but DealDash also uses the page to place articles about current events, or to talk about the brands they carry.  A place to get inspirational quotes and find human interest stories.  DealDashes Facebook page has real-time reviews by everyday players.  Where you can share your winning experience or voice any concerns and see real-time solutions.  DealDash reaches out to many players daily who comment and it’s a truly interactive experience.

Go to the DealDash Facebook page and “like” it!  Join the fun and post your wins for free bids!

Good Luck and Happy Bidding!!!
