The secret to running a successful blog giveaway is undoubtedly all about the promotion of it. Today I thought I’d share with you 10 places where you can promote your blog giveaway for free.
Promote your Blog Giveaway for Free
1)U, Me and The Kids blog – Competitions Linky
A weekly blog competition linky run by Rachel where you can add your own blog giveaways and get free promotion.
2) Di Coke Super Lucky – Blog Comp Linky
A monthly list linky of blog giveaways run by Di.
3) Given To Distracting Others – Freebie Friday
A weekly linky run by Jo that goes live every Friday. Also includes a round-up of some great bargains and discount codes for the week.
4) Comper Friendly Blog Competitions Facebook
A Facebook group for people to share blog competitions.
5) UK Bloggers Facebook Group – Competitions Thread
A meeting place for bloggers from the UK. They have a dedicated competitions thread for bloggers to add their giveaways. Do not post to the main wall.
6) Competitions Facebook group
This group is for people who love competitions. Any kind of competition is welcome here!
7) Loquax – Home of the Lucky Duck
Loquax is the UK’s oldest prize and competition portal. You will need to register, which is free.
8) Money Saving Expert Forums
Please note with this one you cannot add your own blog giveaway or competition, someone else needs to do it for. It’s against their rules. If you add your own you will get banned from the site. I learnt this the hard way! Fortunately someone still adds my giveaways to the site although I have no idea who they are!
9) The Prize Finder – Finding the competitions you really want.
Listing is free and the site is easy to use, however they do ideally like a link back to their site from yours.
Twitter is a fantastic resource for promoting your latest giveaway. Just make sure you use relevant hashtags in your tweet such as #win, #giveaway and #competition. Always include an image with your tweet, as images on Twitter catch the eye meaning more people will see it.
Two bonus places exclusively for parent bloggers
11) BritMums Group – Competitions, Contests and Giveaways
Are you having a contest on your blog? List it here. You will need to be a member of the BritMums community and also a parent blogger.
12) Mummy and Daddy Bloggers Facebook Group – Competitions/Giveaways Thread
A group to bring together Mummy bloggers and Daddy bloggers. They have a dedicated thread for competitions and giveaways. Do not post straight to the main wall.
