How to promote your blog giveaway online

Blog giveaways are an amazing way to give something back to your existing readers as well as getting new eyes on your blog.  I love using Rafflecopter to run my blog giveaways.  They make the whole process really simple.  Choose your prize, add your entry options, enter your T&Cs and voila!  They’ll give you the code to pop their widget on your blog.

But don’t just expect everyone to find the giveaway on your blog.  You have to get out there and tell everyone all about it!

Here are 7 ways to share blog giveaways once you hit publish:

Share a picture of the prize on Instagram so your followers here know about your giveaway.  Use hashtags which are relevant such as #instawin #instagiveaway #giveaway #prize #win #competition
