This month we have been discussing blogging and keys to successful giveaways. I thought I would show a good example of how to run a effective giveaway, and we can all watch and contribute to its success!
I will be giving away a $100 Gift Certificate to one lucky winner to use at my new and improved shop, PixieChicago.com. As addressed previously this month in her “To give or not to give” article, Jessika talked about being sure to research the blogs’ past giveaways (to rate success) and also make sure you know the stats and readership information to help you base the amount of the giveaway. I know OMHG has many readers and still growing fast so $100 is a great deal to offer and I think it will receive positive responses.
I also made sure I followed Jessika’s checklist:
YOU CONTACTED THEM:
CHECK -Researched OMHG’S site & past giveaways
CHECK -OMHG Shared stats. & readership info
CHECK -Know & respect OMHG & editor(s)
CHECK -OMHG reader’s are potential customers
CHECK -OMHG has a mix of content
CHECK -it’s good exposure If it feels right
Now this is where ohmyhandmade readers can help. Share this offer with your facebook friends and twitter followers or even on your own blog to receive extra entries and also let’s see how many people we can get to enter! We are a strong group so let’s share our power!
