The 4 Giveaway Programs For Your Blog
1 Flares Made with Flare More Info'> 1 Flares ×
Almost every blog has a giveaway at one point or another and it is hard to decide which giveaway program to use and why. Here are the 4 most popular programs and some of their features. I know, I know it is a hard decision to make as to which one to use but thank goodness you have more than one option. Here are the 4:
In seconds you can setup a new campaign with your prize information and dates for your promotion. You can then determine which actions to include for users to complete in order to enter your sweepstakes. You can also add social media interactions and enable automatic Twitter and Facebook validation to ensure that users complete the actions while making it easier for entrants to enter your promotion by automatically recording their data. Plus you can customize your Entry Form Layout and Design. Once you’ve designed your entry form just the way you want it, publish your campaign and you’ll get the customized code to embed your form within your website content, a link to a hosted page with your entry form and the ability to publish your sweepstakes to Facebook in seconds with our Facebook app.

Rafflecopter is ridiculously easy from start to finish. They take you step by step, and even have a button to randomly select a winner so you don’t have to deal with collecting and sorting info for any randomizers. Maybe the best part is that it stores prior contests so you don’t have to start from scratch each time. All you do is update the details like times and prizes. Looks-wise, you can actually pay a fee and brand it with your own logo now, but otherwise, I never really paid much attention to the design aspect of it. Personally, I don’t hesitate to go right to their site when it’s time for me to do a giveaway.

The only thing with this program is there is a waiting list and you have no idea how long you may wait before you can start using it. It is a web application that creates an embeddable entry form used for promotions & giveaways. The great part of this tool is some of the entries are automatically verified for you. Which takes out the guess work of trying to see if a person did the entry or not.

You’ve probably heard of PunchTab’s loyalty program and reward system. However, they also have an awesome free giveaway widget that makes it really easy to run a giveaway on your blog. When creating a giveaway through PunchTab, you will choose and customize the entry methods. Each method will be represented as a “step” in the entry process on your widget. Although entering via Facebook or email is required, the rest of the entry methods are optional and can be skipped. If the product you’re giving away is really good, users will want more entries and be willing to follow, like, +1, pin, etc. PunchTab lets you customize the order of your entry methods. Upon completion you’ll get the code snippet to paste into your blog page or post. You can also add the giveaway to your Facebook page as a new app and/or get a sidebar widget to help promote your giveaway. When your giveaway is over, you can choose a winner or have PunchTab choose one for you. You’ll also have access to the email address collected from the widget and if you have a Constant Contact account, there’s an option to export email address there as well.

So, there’s the chooses and it is up to you which one fits you better and make the most sense for your blog. I have used Rafflecopter since the start of Rude Mom, but I am now checking for a different way for my followers to enter. It is also good to always have more chooses out there when you are about to run a giveaway for others to win.
