Tools and Apps For a Viral Giveaway

Let's talk about some tools for a viral giveaway because that's, that's, that's why you're here today is I want to help your giveaways and contest become viral. So if you're doing a giveaway on your own website and blawg raffle copter is a great one and that's shown in the picture here kind of a screen shot of what that looks like, they think a lot of us are probably familiar with wrathful copter all of these tools I'm going to show you are free to use, they have paid plans for special features, but you absolutely don't have to pay for it if you don't want to honestly, to me and like it's a giveaway, I'm doing it once a month. I don't want to have to pay a fifty dollars monthly fee for something tiny like this. So what I like about raffle copter is, and these are all for an what's nice about all of these aps is you don't have to touch a single line of code, so you just go in there. You select a few settings you type in, you log into your facebook and twitters so that it can connect so ...

that the program can connect your social medium and it will give you this code that you do. Then just take and copy and paste it into your web site or onto your blogged, and you'll create something really pretty that looks like this, and if you want, you can actually put in a picture right in between here of your product, and I would actually recommend that, but what it does is it makes it really easy for people to go around and do the things you want them to do. So, for example, it will tell you in order to went in order to participate in this giveaway, you need to answer this question so you can click on this little button here and it will slide down, and it will show you a question, and then you just type it right in there, and once you hit enter, it will automatically know, all right, you've done it, you've got you've got you've gotten two out of four entries. The nice thing is, once you connect all your social media to this program, you connect your twitter, your pinterest, your facebook et cetera. You can also make it so that just tell one of the entries khun b follow so and so on twitter, follow you on facebook or pinterest and once you click on that, it will slide out again and the little like button to your facebook. Or to your pinterest will appear there so the person never had never has to leave the page that can just do it all on your block within this within this cute little program here what's also nice about raffle copter is you can decide and dictate how many the weight of each task so for example answering this question you get two entries but if you were to just follow them on twitter you only get one entry so the more entries you earn the higher your chances of winning there's also viral sweep and gleaned I owe these air some other options that I've seen other people using I've never used it myself but they they look pretty cool so just go out there and check it out giveaways in general their a game of chance right it's random the more that people participate the lower their chances aren't winning so how can we kind of hack that and make it so that your fans the people participating are actually helping you share your giveaway so I really like king soon will give aways it's not the cheapest out there but it's a one time fee once you pay for it you own it you don't have to pay a recording fee for that but what I love about it and this is ah wordpress plug in so you can only use it if you have a wordpress website but what I love about it is you can reward people for extra entries by sharing the give away. So once you've joined the give away let's, say, I'm someone who's participating in a giveaway using king sumo giveaways. The moment I joined, I'm going to get and kind of like a referral link or an affiliate link that I can. Then sure, with my fans, or my my facebook friends or my instagram friends. And if people join this giveaway using my link, I get extra points. So there's. A huge incentive there for your participants to go out there and share with us many of their friends as possible, because they stand to gain from that.
