*Update* The results of this survey have been published here in our recent blog post “How Many Giveaway Entry Options Should You Use?“. Thanks for your help!
When you run giveaways using Rafflecopter, you’re given complete control of how many entry options you’d like in your giveaway form.
A majority of Rafflecopter giveaways created have less than 10 entry options (the SendFudge.com Brand Showcase has 5), but there have been thousands of giveaways created with 10-20 entry options, and even still, many giveaways with 20+ entry options that have been run successfully.
There are pros and cons to having many entry options. What works for one blog or website might not work for another. On one end of the spectrum, having many entry options (we’ll say ‘greater than 20’) can be great for:
- introducing/connecting bloggers and their readership by means of ‘group giveaways’
- giving readers a variety of ways to enter (pick and choose)
- connecting with your readers through all your social networks at once
However, keeping the total number of entry options low (less than 10) has advantages as well:
- KISS – easier for your readers to earn all entries and feel “satisfied”
- not overwhelming to participants
- less time needed for you to moderate/manage the giveaway
