We’re happy to introduce Rafflecopter!
What is Rafflecopter? Rafflecopter will be an application that will help publishers create, run, and organize giveaways on their blogs. It’s a service that will allow users to place an embeddable widget that displays the specifications and entrants of the giveaway.
When a user of Rafflecopter signs in to their account, they’ll see a dashboard of past, current, and future giveaways. They can create a widget for a new giveaway by entering the giveaway specs: start and end dates, ways to enter, rules, etc. The user will then take the widget embed code and place it on their blog, much like a youtube video.
Publishers will benefit from this in several ways. Rafflecopter’s main objective is to save the publisher’s time by allowing them to manage their giveaways from a single location. We hope to improve the entire flow of the giveaway process, from identifying false entries to selecting and presenting a winner. The widget is also designed to allow the entrants to fill out more entry options by providing them the giveaway options in a format that makes it simple and convenient to enter.
We’ve received a lot of feedback from publishers interested in trying out Rafflecopter, but we’re always looking for more. We’re also completing our hunt for private alpha users, so please feel free to get in touch with us if you’re interested in trying it out! We’re looking to release our first product privately sometime in April 2011. So if you’re interested, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to helping you!
