Monday I spoke about Rafflecopter and now I'm going to explain what Rafflecopter is for Tuesday's Tools.
Rafflecopter claims: Rafflecopter is the world’s easiest way to run a giveaway.
And they are.
It takes 5 minutes (3 in their estimation) but it really could be 2 min. if you have everything ready to go, to set up.
What it is: A internet place/code to giveaway an item for promoting your brand.
What you do: Sign up (for free) fill in a form, get the code, paste that code anywhere. Collect emails.
It's fun, it's smart, it's easy and it promotes you.
Seriously. I signed up--gave my name, my email, provided a password, proved I was human and put in my website URL. I was in!!
Now for the giveaway.
1. I nicknamed the giveaway.
2. Chose my prize.
3. Adjusted how people can enter.
4. Plugged in when it started and when it stopped.
5. Agreed to TOS.
6. Got the code.
7. Pasted the code into any element that takes HTML.
Done! Below is an EXAMPLE!! If you do happen to push the button don't come crying to me. It's an EXAMPLE that I did poorly--on purpose.
This version is FREE ~ but you can add a picture and other neat tricks by upgrading. There are two upgrades - Blogger $7.99/month and Business $59.99/month.
ACTION ITEM: Go to https://www.rafflecopter.com sign up and try your hand at a giveaway! Don't forget to promote it, just like anything else!
My efforts are to make this a learning blog where writers can see the flip side of publishing. If you have comments that will improve your experience or have a certain topic you'd like discussed, please contact me through email - HERE.
