My fellow bloggers have definitely heard a few famous sayings in their own sweet time. Particularly, something along the lines of this; “the best things in life are always free.”
So what even if they’re just wholesale tote bags, just giving away free stuff will generate new traffic and also rattle your existing supporters. Moreover, you will also get a chance to give your blog a makeover of sorts. Read on for more.
Now many might think that why would somebody even refer to such a douche idea (no offence to the sensitive!). However, it is not just what the saying, well, says, but what exactly is the implication of the same.
Bloggers follow the implication and start giving away free stuff to your readers. The Price? Traffic, silly!
Decisions and interactions
Even if you are fairly not interested or simply do not engage much in gossip, you have to admit that gossip has certain positive sides as well.
Transfer that same logic and think: your contests or something similar will give your readers, existing and potential a point to talk about. This will in turn give a fair chance for not only interactions, but also a good deal of feedback.
What you have to work out dear bloggers is exactly how to go about the task. You will have to give away some stuff or the other. However, making it somewhat both an uphill task and yet somehow interesting will certainly hook everybody involved.
Your first concern should be to decide what exactly to give away. Your blog might be unique and will automatically give you plenty of space to indulge in. Or, you could always rely on products, if you either own or are in some manner related to a product based company.
Seriously, it does not have to be very expensive or handy either. All of us appreciate the ‘free’ things in life, as long as it is not broken or something harmful of course.
If the idea of tote bags do not appeal and you are one of those thoughtful kinds, a goodie bag is just your call. Nothing works quite as well as people getting to open a neat little ribbon or something.
Gift vouchers or food coupons are always appreciated too. You can also give away certificates for stores and such, whatever suits your purpose.
Playing hard to get
Do not make the mistake of making it too easy for your readers to win, dear bloggers. After all, who appreciates anything which comes without some amount of tomfoolery?
Some people (read nerds), have known to buy fake items from some superhero movies or whatever. Some even participate in lesser known auctions for things which serve absolutely no purpose. So, why not play a bit with your readers as well?
For starters, promote your contest or game and above all, your idea of sweepstakes, well. This will surely intrigue your readers and drive them to tell their friends and all.
Being a blogger, crafting a custom made post for promotion should really come easy to your. Use your manipulative edge mate!
Use social network sites. Though most claim that such sites are ridiculous, they nevertheless share and post links, which should serve your purpose well. Make your readers dance by asking them to help in promoting stuff as well.
Your thoughts? I’d love to hear them!
