First off, it seems odd to me that they are launching Rafflecopter this month since I have been fortunate to be associated with people who have been using it since the early stages.
Never heard of it? Well, let me bring you up to speed because it is what I intend to use for the Kindness in Giving giveaways.
If you have ever attempted to run a giveaway, drawing, raffle whatever online then you know it can be cumbersome. Actually, I am sure we have all participated in one and know from that end of things how complicated it can be to try and make something happen virtually.
Rafflecopter makes the process easy for the giver, fun for the receiver.
As the giver, you create a Rafflecopter account and get giving right out of the gate. The templates are easy peasy to use and the dashboard easy to manage.
As the entrant, you may be asking what makes Rafflecopter so fun. Well, to me, it's a little more interactive than just filling out your name and vital statistics and pressing enter. Givers can set up tasks to be completed to gain entries. Givers can also set values to go along with those tasks to encourage better participation. For example, I just sold this blog out for 5 entries in the Rafflecopter Launch giveaway...and no I am not ashamed.
Rafflecopter takes the human element out of online giveaways and lends credence to folks on the web just trying to give stuff away. Most of my Rafflecopter interaction has been with bloggers and mompreneurs. There is a lot of great content on the web that isn't being churned by household names, and with the ease of use on both sides of the giveaway I think Rafflecopter will help propel some of these sites into a richly deserved spotlight.
Prior to this post, I have sponsored one Rafflecopter giveaway for my Clever Container business. Pleased and surprised by the result I was. I didn't do the set up for it but having been on my personal dashboard I can tell you that set up is only as complicated as the tasks you require for entries. On the receiving side, well, here is where I get a little skewed. I won three Rafflecopter giveaways last month. Because you can choose to log in with your Facebook account, it is so easy to quickly enter multiple contest in a short period of time. Heck, go google "Rafflecopter Giveaways" and see how easy it is yourself!
So what's this launch all about? Rafflecopter is giving away on Apple iPad 2 and two Kindle Fires. Want to enter, well check it out below and GOOD LUCK to ya! Oh, and for who referred you, please use Jenny Wolfe...ty!
