Calling all review & giveaway bloggers. Have you heard of PromoSimple? It’s a tool used to create giveaways and promotions on your website, making entries easier for your readers to take part in, and easier for you to keep track of who is entering all the fab giveaways you have going on.
Now I’ve used a few other (giveaway promotions) such as this before, such as Rafflecopter and Giveaway Tools. But after trying out PromoSimple, I have to tell you I’m in love! So what makes PromoSimple Different from the Rest?
Easy to Use
I don’t even know where to begin. The first thing that caught my eye about PromoSimple was how easy it was use and how fantastic the forms look in a blog post. The first thing you do is sign up for an account. I opted to use the free account (for now) as I check out the tools and actions the forms have to offer.
Once you sign up, you simply create a form and enter your information. It’s pretty straight forward. You have options for time and date, how many winners, and then there comes the ability to enter bonus entries which we all know are an important part of running giveaways on our blogs.
Bonus Entry Options Done Right!
If you are like me, I want to make entering giveaways as easy as possible on my readers. PromoSimple does just that for you. There are tons of bonus entry options such as (Facebook Like, Twitter follow, Tweets, Newsletter Signups, Instagram, Pin to Pinterest) and much more. What I like the best is how simple and easy it is for my readers to click and gain access to bonus entries, giving them more chances to win.
Unlike other giveaway tools, PromoSimple allows you to customize your widget the way you want. You can choose from 8 different colors, add in your own headline, customize the size and length, make the widget standard or narrow to fit your needs.
Facebook Promotion to help gain Readership
Another great thing I love about PromoSimple is they have a variety of ways to help promote your giveaways. One way is to add a Facebook widget to your Fan Page, showcasing all the giveaways you are running currently on your site. Everyone loves to win free stuff, so why not turn some of those winners into Facebook fans? PromoSimple makes it simple to add a FB widget, just click on promote, grant access via FB token and choose the fan page you want to add your giveaways to!
Promote Your Givaways Using A Sidebar Widget
PromoSimple also offers a great sidebar widget that allows you to showcase all your giveaways on the sidebar of your blog. No more linking, no more creating menus. Just simply add your widget via your sidebar using the PromoSimple Code — and BOOM! You are in business. Note: You can also add external links if you want to showcase other people’s giveaways. This could be a great marketing tool.
PromoSimple provides more exposure by offering a variety of ways to promote your giveaways and contests. One way is by using layers. By adding a simple code to your footer in your theme, you can create a pop up of your latest giveaway that users can click to enter immediately without leaving your site.
If you haven’t given PromoSimple a try, head on over to their website and do it. You won’t regret using it. So far I’m greatly pleased with the results and have had no issues implementing any of the promotional tools offered to bloggers.
