Blogging ABCs hosts Deborah Carney, Liz Fogg and Trica Meyer discuss how to use giveaways on your blog including where to get giveaways, what are you expecting to get out of it and what are companies expecting to get out of it.
It’s easiest to start with your own product to get going. You can then contact the affiliate managers for programs that you are an affiliate of and also contact national brands that you currently use. When possible, request a promo code for your users so that they can place an order after the contest is over. Be sure to set realistic expectations for both sides so that you can possibly partner again later.
Feel free to post links to your blog for us to take a look at in the comments below! Also suggestions for future podcast topics or guests.
