RaffleCopter GiveAway and Raffle Widget Review!

RaffleCopter Makes GiveAways
& Raffles A Snap!

Give-Away contests are notoriously a pain in the butt!

Traditionally, you have to do a lot of tracking, bookkeeping, counting, and paperwork and then deal with a random number generator to find the winner.

So when Andy offered me the opportunity to raffle off a premium copy of Commentluv, I was concerned about not having enough time to do a good job.

Fortunately, several of my blogging friends had had good results using RaffleCopter and suggested I try them out.

Greg from over at @RaffleCopter was awesome and hooked me up with a beta invite.

I gotta say, the widget is a win! It was incredibly easy to set up, manage and low-maintenance.

It’s the least work I’ve EVER done for a online action-to-enter raffle!

 How to Enter Rafflecopter Giveaways

There is no plugin required and it is simply copy and paste code into the html section of your site and you’re good to go.

A tip: WordPress can be cranky about script codes, so after you paste it, stay on the HTML tab, hit publish and leave. Don’t go back to the visual tab.

I will definitely be on the look out for more cool things I can offer as giveaways in the future. If you’re interested in learning more about doing that on your blog, check out Ana’s blog for a post on how to get sponsors for giveaways (and reviews).

Did you enjoy the contest? What were your thoughts as you participated in the raffle and used the widget? Did you find it good, bad, awesome or see any bugs? It is still in beta and Greg and I both welcome your feedback!

Taking The Headaches Out Of Internet Marketing

PS: I do not know what or how or if it will be priced when it comes out of beta. So far it appears that everyone that has gotten a beta invite has been able to use it for free. Enjoy it and be sure to give them plenty of feedback!

I thought it was brilliant in the use of your CommentLuv premium give away! When I asked you about and you told me it tracked everything for you I was amazed! Nothing like a wonderful tool to make giving so much easier! I added my name to their list and hope to hear from them to give it a try or until it comes out of beta.

It was very easy to use as an end user and I used it everyday and I am so glad to hear it made life easy on you as the facilitator!

I too checked out RaffleCopter, Kim, and was just as impressed with the ease of use.

Thanks for the mention, by the way!

This is brilliant Kim!

Thanks for sharing. This is right up my street and something that I was chatting about to a client of mine just last week. I will have to bookmark this and come back to it soon.

Thanks Kim

I LOVE THIS! So many thoughts were blasting their way through my head as I was watching the video.

First thing I’m going to attempt is converting this into a iframe tab/reveal tab on my fan page. This looks INSANE! 😀

Thanks for the killer updates.
