Thankyou for the informative reply. I think I will do Rafflecopter. It seems the easiest for a beginner. I love your blog and am a follower. Thankyou...Stop by mine when you get a chance http://www.jssherr.blogspot.com
Like others have said a lot of the time publishers/authors donate books for giveaway. Or like me you could donate something yourself. A lot of people use Rafflecopter for the easy voting and set up.
Here is mine I just started...
I'm hosting my first Giveaway, a thank you of sorts at my blog Book Enslaved
Up for grabs is:
$20 Amazon Gift Card or $20 worth of books from Book Depository
Wow! You have a very professional blog...I am now a follower.Thankyou for your response. It was very helpful..I am going to try a giveaway... Visit my blog when you get a chance...http://www.jssherr.blogspot.com
You'll see I have a lot to learn......Joyce
I'm new to book blogging and I'm currently holding my first giveaway. For me, I was contacted by the author who graciously provided the book swag and ebook copy to a lucky winner while at the same time given a guest post at my blog. There are I think other avenues as mentioned by the others below. Hope that helps.
Thanks Lorraine..Really appreciate your comments,...I think for the first time I will try Rafflecopter and then go from there.. Joyce
Many authors will donate an item for you to give away. I have donated eBooks and physical books. I use www.RaffleCopter.com to put together my own give away. Great service and it is free!
My blogs new too so I've been shying away from giveaways, blog tours, ect. How big should a blog be before we do these things? How important are they?
