I always have lots of giveaways here on Bay Area Mommy and most of these giveaways use Rafflecopter as the giveaway widget. Rafflecopter makes it so much easier for bloggers to run giveaways. It allows us to share the widget with others so they could offer the same giveaway on their blogs. It gives bloggers the flexibility to determine the weight of each task. It has a button for picking winners via Random.org and another one for announcing them. The only thing lacking, I believe, is the ability to auto-verify.
But lately, Rafflecopter has been acting up and has been down like half the time. I want to use a different (and hopefully more more reliable) giveaway widget. But I don’t want to do it if none of you are going to enter because you don’t like the widget. So I decided I’d just ask you for your feedback. Do you suggest I stick it out with Rafflecopter? Or are you okay with using another giveaway platform?
I created sample giveaways below so you can try them for yourself. These are not real giveaways. I just put them there so you can test it and decide which one you think is best.
After you’re done trying them out, please answer the quick survey below and don’t hesitate to leave me a comment/message. 🙂
