Weigh In On Rafflecopter!
With the introduction of Rafflecopter being used now for giveaway entries in many blogs, I'm open to hearing what others have to say about this service. I currently do not use Rafflecopter for my giveaway entries. I am still in the post a comment mode. Not sure yet if I will ever switch over. I'm hoping to get some good feedback from my readers on the good, or the bad, of Rafflecopter.
There is a big reason why I have yet to make the switch. Years before I even started blogging, I was (and still am!) a member of Online-Sweepstakes.com. I'm sure many of you will recognize that website as a good resource to gain traffic for your blog giveaways! The discussions on Rafflecopter on this site by its members has me not really sure which way to go.
Most of the comments that fellow members of this site are concerned about is regarding cheaters, which I fully understand. Blog giveaways can take a good little chunk of time to enter, especially if you like to get in all the extra entries you can! There's been talk of some Rafflecopter giveaways being sketchy due to the fact that one might boast 2,000 entries, while the main entry is to leave a comment and there are only 100 or less there. I have to say, as someone who does like to enter fellow blogger giveaways, this does make me nervous!
So here are some of the questions I have. Hopefully some of you more Rafflecopter experienced bloggers can help me out!
- If you use Rafflecopter, is it hard to manage catching those who unfortunately cheat?
- Have you tried Rafflecopter and like it, or have you switched back to the general commenting method?
- Do you have any feelings regarding preferring entering giveaways that use or do not use the Rafflecopter method?
- If you have switched to Rafflecopter, are you seeing an increase in entries?
