The Blog Engage Giveaway here on Basic Blog Tips lasted for an entire month! Many of the contestants threw their hats in the ring the very first day the contest started and they did an outstanding job of tweeting and promoting the contest. Each contestant was also required to subscribe to my YouTube channel, comment on the post and follow @BasicBlogTips on Twitter. Brian, owner of Blog Engage, convinced me to use Rafflecopter to manage the contest and tabulate the votes. I'm so glad he did! The winners were picked by Random.org and this helps keep the results fair and makes any contest easier to manage.
If you ever want to use Rafflecopter for a contest or giveaway, watch the tutorial from Justin at DragonBlogger who does an awesome job of explaining how the system works (you'll find his video at the bottom of this post).
