Do you have a business or blog and looking to draw in traffic? Running a giveaway is a great way to accomplish this task as well as adding real followers to your social media accounts. But how do you promote the giveaway if you don’t have traffic yet? Good question! This is my own personal list of places to submit Giveaways to gain more traffic. As I work with each one, I have included a review of the site.
Blog Giveaway Listings I Have Used:
Blog giveaway directory: Simple submission, host several blog giveaways. For $3.99 you can upgrade.
Contest Corner: (Google #4) Another great site that will post your giveaway in the same day. Contest-Corner is probably the easiest site to submit a giveaway. It can be done in under 1 minute. They also have a Sweepstakes Saturday you’ll get some nice traffic from. Post on the Saturday page early! (no back link or registration is required)
Contest Girl: (Google – Nothing) Our third site is Contest Girl. For certain giveaways we have seen an enormous amount of traffic from them. I usually like to submit my giveaways to them the night before. It’s another easy site to submit to and should only take a minute. (no back link or registration is required)
Hypersweep: Long but simple submission
Lucky Contests: Simple submission,but requires you to link back to their website.
Makobi Scribe giveaways: (Google #5) Utilizes the inLinkz widget, very simple, no moderation
My Scratch Off: (Google – Nothing) Simple submission, host several giftcard giveaways. Site is a little convuluted with crazy banners everywhere.
Online Sweepstakes: (Google #1) This is probably my favorite. We get a TON of traffic from them and it’s super simple to submit a giveaway. They will almost always post your giveaway the same day you submit it. A great tip is to post your giveaway early in the morning. That way then your giveaway will be at the top of the list. 🙂 (no back links but registration is required)
Social Moms: Must sign up to forum to post your giveaway
Sweepstakes Advantage: (Google #2) Our last site on the best giveaway list ever is SweepsAdvantage. They do require a back link but they have a ton of fans and you’ll get some really great traffic sent your way. You can even include a back link on your homepage and you’ll be listed in their email blast. (back link and registration required)
Sweepstakes Plus: (Google #3) I didn’t log my contest into this site, but they must have and I got good results for them as they were the third highest aquisition site for my first giveaway. However, this site requires payment to run a giveaway starting at $7 for 3 months.
The Sweepstakes Wire: Simple to submit.
