Actual Promotion Results

Giveaway Promote is the leading high-touch giveaway promotion service for bloggers and businesses.

We are giveaway promotion experts — dedicated to promoting your giveaways to real entrants via social media and blog-style giveaway listings. Trusted as a one-stop source of real, winnable giveaways, thousands of entrants visit the giveaways promoted by Giveaway Promote every day.

We have provided reliable and effective giveaway promotion services for seven years to well over 100,000 brands and bloggers.

Here it is. The data.

The performance of your giveaway listing will vary based on a wide variety of factors.

Using the data below, you can make more informed decisions when structuring your promotion campaigns and ultimately improve your giveaway listing view and click results.


Measuring the value of a giveaway listing

You may be asking yourself — “So what exactly are we measuring here?”

While we do track visits and clicks, that’s not where it ends.

The value of our giveaway promotion is much more than the view and click numbers.

Business and bloggers use Giveaway Promote time and again because it’s obvious that we’re not just sending you “traffic”.

Each giveaway entrant we send your way is also doing what you’re asking in exchange for entries.

One of those “clicks” may become a Twitter follower; send out a tweet about your giveaway; subscribe to your email list; follow you on Instagram; subscribe to your YouTube channel, and leave a comment on your website. It all depends on how you structure your giveaway.

If you simply want traffic, you’re in the wrong place.

If you want to use your giveaway to build your audience with consumers — real engaged people, that’s what we specialize in.

We’ve conscientiously and consistently built our audience over the course of seven years.

The combined value in one view/click from our audience is extraordinary and immeasurable.

Giveaway listing performance variables

Your level of promotion ordered, length of time listed on Giveaway Promote, entry requirements, location eligibility, selected listing image and the clarity of your title/description wording will have a direct effect on your giveaway promotion campaign results. No two giveaways are the same.

Reasons that a giveaway may see more views and clicks:

  • More promotion ordered
  • Submitted early = Giveaway listed for a longer period of time
  • High value/appeal prize: electronics, cash or gift cards, etc.
  • Giveaway is open Worldwide
  • Easy entry requirements

These giveaways will generally see an average CPV/CPC at the lower end of the range.

Reasons that a giveaway may see fewer views and clicks:

  • Less promotion ordered
  • Submitted last minute = Giveaway listed for a short period of time
  • Niche specific prize: niche specific or genre specific books, for example
  • Low value/appeal prize: ebooks, DVDs, apps, downloads, coupons, under $20 in value, location specific prizes, unknown brands, etc.
  • Giveaway has limited eligibility. Open to Canada only or UK only, for example
  • High barrier to entry. Requiring entrants to register for an account, create an app, write an article, refer friends, download an app, play a game, etc.

These giveaways will generally see an average CPV/CPC at the higher end of the range.

Examples:

  • Giveaways listed for two months will see more views than giveaways listed for three days.
  • Giveaways open worldwide will see more views than giveaways open to Canada only (or US only, UK only, etc.).
  • Giveaways with broad appeal prizes (gift card, cash, electronics) will see more views than limited appeal or low-value prizes (ebooks, under $10 value, online courses or downloads, etc.).
  • Easy to enter giveaways will see more views than giveaways that require entrants to register for an account, make a video, refer the most friends, etc.

Impressive numbers aren’t everything. It’s a better idea to target quality over quantity. The more specific and targeted your prize is, the more targeted your leads will be.

If you are giving away a niche book with the goal of attracting readers; fewer, hyper-targeted entrants are going to be of much greater value to you than a higher quantity of general entrants.

Tip: Maximize your results! Ordering additional email and social media promotion is suggested for prizes with lower appeal, restricted eligibility, etc.
