promote your giveaway online

There are TONS of sites online where you can promote your giveaway or contest. I wanted to break down the top 5 sites we use when promoting new giveaways. Over the last year we’ve used tons of different sites but always see the most traffic from these 5 sites. Hosting a giveaway on your site is a great way to build traffic and fans but it’s not a “if you post it, they will come” type of deal. You must actively go out there and promote your giveaway. You might find a lot of fans who subscribe to your site for just the giveaway and that’s fine because you’ll get a bunch of fans that will stick around (if your content/product is useful). Enough with all this lets get to the list!

Top 5 to Promote Your Giveaway

  1. Online-Sweepstakes.com – This is probably my favorite. We get a TON of traffic from them and it’s super simple to submit a giveaway. They will almost always post your giveaway the same day you submit it. A great tip is to post your giveaway early in the morning. That way then your giveaway will be at the top of the list. :) Always thinking here at RaffleDog. (no back links but registration is required)
