- Rewarding your readers with a super-awesome giveaway.
- Increasing your following by leaps and bounds (the average reported by previous participants is 500 new followers per social media method; some reported as many as 1,000!).
- Catching the eye of search engines when people search things like “Nexus,” “Nexus10,” “Nexus giveaway,” “tablet giveaway,” or “Tablet Time giveaway.”
- Entering for a chance to be a host for the next Tablet Time (no fees resulting in three free follow links; must be part of the Tablet Time/Measuring Flower Facebook group to enter to be a host for future Tablet Time giveaways).
- The giveaway will be held in a post on EVERY participating blogger’s blog! Note: Ning and similar networks/communities are welcome to participate too!
- The heart of the giveaway is to reward our amazing readers, but it is also to help boost our following.
Have a family-friendly blog (Ning and certain similar networks/communities welcome also as long as they have a place to publish the giveaway post with the Rafflecopter form).
Remit the participation/sponsorship fee via PayPal (payment details in the sign up form). Fees are as follows: $6 for 1 link; $10 for 2 links; $14 for 3 links. All follow links must abide by laws and by the social network’s rules. **NEW** Bloggers who write a post seeking participating bloggers will receive $1 off their participation fee!
Submit the follow links of your choice (a follow link is the direct link to your Twitter profile, Facebook fan page, Pinterest link, etc.; lines to submit are in the application form).
OPTIONAL. Join the Tablet Time Facebook group (link is in the sign-up form; only those who sign up can join the group).
Write a giveaway post about the giveaway and include the Rafflecopter form for others to enter (participants will receive this code at a later date). This post MUST include one of event banners/buttons.
Schedule said post (item #5) to publish on January 14, 2013, at 12:01 AM EST and inform your readers that the deadline to enter is January 28, 2013, at 11:59 PM EST , is open to U.S. and Canadian residents only, and entrants must be 18 years or older. You will receive reminders and details via the Facebook group and email as the event draws nigh.
OPTIONAL: Display the event’s button or banner on your sidebar or above the fold on your blog.
- As a participating blogger, you will NOT be allowed to enter the giveaway (conflict of interest–sorry!). But you will be able to take full advantage of all the readers it pleases and the numbers it boosts and have a chance to be one of the next Tablet Time hosts (must be part of the TT Facebook group to enter to be a host)!
