Hosting a giveaways or contests on your blog is a great way to increase your subscriber list. Also, many people host giveaways on behalf of brand, companies or other organizations who may sponsor the giveaway for a fee.
You can add different ways for people to earn entries including by following you or your partner on social media, viewing a video, sharing the giveaway on their own social accounts, pinning an image on Pinterest, upload a photo with a hashtag and more.
As your entrants do these things, if you are partnering with a brand, they will be seeing social proof about your status as an influencer and will know they are getting a great return on their investment.
My giveaways get a minimum of 10,000 entries per giveaway. There are a lot of companies that will host, manage and automate your giveaway for you for free! My tool of choice is Gleam.io. Using that platform is key to my success because unlike other tools, Gleam has tons of entry methods. But certainly you are free to use others.
Also, there is a formula to getting a high engaging and high entry giveaway!
I share the how-to in a 12-minute quick tutorial video that you can access here!
