Tuesday Tech Tips: Giveaway Goodies
Do you run giveaways on your blog regularly (or once in a blue moon)? A couple of helpful (free) tools that might prove helpful include true random number generator Random.org and giveaway management site Rafflecopter.com, which allows you to set criteria for entries. You could simply require a blog comment for entry, or ask that blog visitors subscribe, like your blog’s Facebook page, follow you (or a brand) on Twitter… the options are endless. Remember to not overdo it, though – unless your giveaway is highly desirable, it’s often best to set just one required entry. Rafflecopter will allow you to offer additional optional entries for those who wish to increase their odds.
If you do run giveaways on your blog, make sure you are in accordance with FTC regulations, for more info, go here.
Tuesday Tech Tips are not intended to reinvent the wheel and may not always be cutting edge to all of you – we just want to share some of the nifty things we run across on the blogosphere. We’re doing that uppity thing – curating – which in our minds is just a fancy interpretation of the mission of AWB to gather, grow and connect: gather you here, grow your voices and your lovely blogs, and connect you with one another and some helpful tips from time to time. If you run across an item you think would be worth posting, send it with subject “Tips” to email@example.com. You can follow our “Tools & Tips” board on Pinterest or #AWBTips on Twitter. Share your fab finds and let us know what you think!
