I just wanted to let everyone know about a new way I’m going to draw winners now. I think this will make it much easier for me. You will still be able to find winners, and I will still notify by email.
With all the Rafflecopter giveaways I’m doing, they have an easy way to draw winners. They will automatically draw a winner (using random.org) on their website when I access the closed giveaway. Then I can “announce” the winner for everyone to see on that Rafflecopter form on my blog.
So with that feature, here is what I did with the last winner:
1- I “announced” it on the giveaway form- http://psmomreviews.blogspot.com/2011/07/i-love-toy-trains-all-aboard-dvd-review.html. (If you scroll to the Rafflecopter form, you’ll see what I mean.)
2- I change the title to say “closed”.
3- I wrote at the top of the post that it’s closed and listed the winner.
4- I closed comments on the post and removed it from the giveaway list on the side of my blog.
5- I emailed the winner and confirmed their win.
For me this is so much easier than the winner posts I have been doing. But what do you, dear readers think about the new winner announcements?
And since we’re talking about Rafflecopter giveaways…Do you like entering with Rafflecopter on my blog?
I have been doing all my giveaways with Rafflecopter now. It’s so much easier to manage. And since I have lots of giveaways running all the time, this is better for me.
I do worry that if you come to the main page, you can’t get to the Rafflecopter forms directly. But it’s easy to get to the giveaway. All you need to do is click on that blog post, or click on the “read more” link at the bottom.
I also think that the Rafflecopter forms are so much easier to enter on. So, I need some feedback from you.
Do you still like the Rafflecopter entry?
Do you mind that I’m currently only offering that form of entry?
Have you had any issues with the Rafflecopter form? If so, what?
Thanks for your input. I care about what you think. I wouldn’t have this blog without you! Have a great weekend!
