Please Read: With the introduction of the new Rafflecopter premium widget features, this blog post is no longer relevant. We’ve added a feature that makes it really easy to add images to your giveaways that we think you’ll love! Unfortunately, that means the title bar will no longer able to accept HTML, and in turn, the prize image hack below will no longer work. Thanks for your understanding!
That doesn’t mean you cannot get prize images in your giveaway though - check out the new features!
Happy Monday from Rafflecopter HQs :) You might have seen several folks place images in the ‘prize’ field of their Rafflecopter giveaways. While this isn’t something that we’ve called out when creating a widget, we thought we’d write a quick blog post on how you might be able to do this yourself.
On Friday, March 30th, we had the opportunity to sit down and have a ‘Rafflecopter discussion’ with Tanya Smith. Tanya, who runs a podcast called ‘Smart Tools For Small Business‘, is a creative business strategist that specializes in introducing entrepreneurs and small businesses to solutions that might help them become more efficient on the web.
When Tanya reached out to us and asked if we’d like to talk about Rafflecopter and discuss how Rafflecopter can be useful for small businesses, we said ‘absolutely!‘ In this 30 minute interview, Tanya asks questions about how Rafflecopter started, what Rafflecopter can do to help both businesses and bloggers alike, and what you can expect out of us over the next several months.
It’s totally Friday! A lot has been going on this week @ Rafflecopter HQ and we thought we’d summarize everything for you in a quick ‘Rafflecopter Roundup’ :)

With that knowledge in mind, you’ll soon see some new features in your Rafflecopter dashboard. But starting today, you’ll be introduced to the first installment of what we’re calling the ‘Rafflecopter Brand Showcase’ series. Continue reading
We’re very excited to announce that starting today, all Rafflecopter users will have access to a white label version of our giveaway application. We’d like to take this time and answer some questions that will help explain why it was created, what this means for you, and how you can take advantage of this opportunity.

A white label product is a product created by one company with the branding removed, allowing another company to brand it as if it was their own. Continue reading
