I have my first giveaway up right now and I’ve learned a few things that I thought were worthy enough to pass on.
1) submit your giveaway to:
there are other directories out there but these were SUPER easy to submit to and I’ve gotten loads of traffic in return for literally seconds of effort.
2) Sign up for feedburner and have your readers submit their email addy to be entered in the giveaway. My subscriber list has jumped from 30 to 130 since the giveaway went up. Even if half those people unsubscribe after the giveaway is over I still end up with a nice little button that tells readers they are part of a like minded group.
3) Ask for reader participation for an entry. I’ve asked my readers to submit a creative tip to get another entry and the results will be great blog fodder for future posts.
I hope this helps someone out there and good luck with all your giveaways!
