Do Blog Giveaways Work? And Winner of the Google Ads Credit Giveaway Announced!


Hey everybody, wow! I had so few entries for the Google Ads Credit Giveaway that I completely forgot to announce the winner yesterday! I guess people aren’t so into free money, either that or not very many people use Google ads… I suppose there are a number of reasons why people would either not want Google ads credit, and also a number of reasons why so few people felt like entering the contest. Maybe my readers aren’t contest people, lol!

Anyway, by default, the winner of the Google Ads Credit Giveaway is…

Jeff, the only one who entered the contest!

Jeff, I emailed you and gave you the code. If you’d like me to mail you the actual Google ads credit card, then email me back your address and I’d be happy to send it to you.

As for everyone else, I need your help. I would like some input:

What kind of giveaway would you enter for? Or are you not the giveaway-entering type? Please leave a comment letting me know.

It’s important to ask your readers what they want from time to time, so that’s what I’m doing now. How would I know what to write, or what to offer you if you don’t tell me, right?

So let me know in a comment the kind of thing you would enter a contest for, with simple and easy ways to enter. Here are my survey questions I’d like you to answer if you’d be so kind. Help a sister out!

The comments section can sometimes become the best and most informative part of a blog post, and that’s all thanks to the readers willing to leave a comment. I’d really like the comments section of this post to be a huge answer board for anyone who’s wondering how they should host a giveaway on their blog. Do you have fingers? Then you can type a comment!

Here are the questions you need to answer:

1. Prize: What would you want the prize to be if you won a giveaway? Straight cash? A gift card to Amazon? Free access to a useful product or guide? Or…?

2. Your Giveaway: Have you ever held a contest or giveaway on your blog? What niche are you in & what did you giveaway?

3. Your Results: How was the response, how many people entered?

Please answer the questions that are applicable to you in a comment. That would be super awesome and would make my day! Plus you’ll be helping out anyone who happens upon this post in the future so they know what to do for their blog when it comes to giveaways.

    Come on people. Not one comment? Anyone there? What are your thoughts on giveaways, or your experience with hosting giveaways?

    I don’t have a nice blog, just a personal one. When I enter giveaways I like to enter ones for toys or movies my son might like or for amazon gift card ones.

    So far I’ve not won a single giveaway I’ve entered. I hardly enter them any more because I end up getting my e-mail and facebook flooded with people I had to follow to earn an entry, and then I never win so its hardly worth it.

    I’ve hosted 2 giveaways on my blog. One was for a pet odor removing laundry detergent. The other was for a hemp bracelet with a wood charm that you could plant to grow a tree. Both of them were sponsored by the company. Neither of them had a lot of entries.
