Wordpress is a free and open-source self-hosted blog and website platform. It is one of the largest and most popular platforms resulting in lots of flexibility through plug-in support.
How To Run A Giveaway With Rafflecopter
You can set a ‘Point Value’ (just as you can with all the options) that will give a weight to that entry. So in this case, where we have given a +3 point value, every person that tweets about the giveaway will get 3 entries into the giveaway. This is quite a smart system by Rafflecopter as you can encourage people to do different things. If your aim was to get more Twitter subscribers then you could give a higher point value to that.
How do I set up a giveaway on Facebook using Rafflecopter?
Can I run a giveaway via rafflecopter on my FB GROUP? I’m trying to get more GROUP members. I’m almost at 10k. I also have a FB Biz Page, but it only has 1650 followers/likers. My site is thru Shopify, where all customers order from, but I’m trying to grow my VIP FB Group, as that’s where all the “action” is. Please help! I’m at 9,920 members and want to do a big 10k giveaway event ASAP! Thanks! Oh- one last thing- can I install this from my iPhone 7s+? Or must it be done from my laptop? Can’t find your app in Apple store...
The Rafflecopter Field Manual
On another blog. You can share your giveaway with other bloggers or businesses so they're able to embed the giveaway on
their website, blog, or Facebook page. To do this, give them the URL generated on the right side of your giveaway's installation page
under 'other options' titled ‘Share this giveaway with other bloggers/pages'. This will allow them to
access your widget code and the ability to install it on their Facebook page. Don’t worry, it won't give them access to your giveaway's
setup or entries tab (learn more).
Old post, but for anyone who reads this. This is NOT how to get the best odds from a Rafflecopter giveaway. A lot of the ways they say to get entries is to share and post. DO NOT DO THIS ON YOUR NORMAL ACCOUNTS! Even if sharing it gets you an extra entry, the people that enter not only cancel out the benefits of your entry but DECREASE your odds by adding to the overall entries. The more they refer the worse and worse it gets. The best thing to do is to 1) start off by ONLY doing the entries that don't require spreading the giveaway, 2) create social accounts just for this type of thing on which to share giveaways. That way you still get entries without decreasing your odds by other people joining and then inviting other people.
