How to Enter a Rafflecopter Giveaway

I'm sort of new to using Rafflecopter to host a giveaway, so maybe some of you are new to using it. So anyway, I thought I'd post some instructions regarding how to enter my recent giveaway. I love hearing from you all, but I feel it would be a shame if any entries were not actually getting captured by Rafflecopter. So I put together this little "job aid" to provide step-by-step instructions for making sure your entry is counted.

How to Submit a Rafflecopter Entry

Step 1: Log into Rafflecopter. You have two choices:

  • Option 1: Select the FaceBook icon to login that way. 
  • Option 2: Select the Use Your Email button.
Because the steps for logging in through FB vs. using your email are quite varied, I'm skipping those steps. However, either way, it's very simple. Just follow the on-screen prompts to enter your information.

Select an option for logging into Rafflecopter.

Step 2: Read the entry instructions. Rafflecopter will present you with a box that tells you what you need to do. To the right of the box is an arrow that allows you to expand the instructions. Select that arrow to view the complete instructions.

Step 3: Mark completion of step. After you have completed the required task (in this case, added a comment), go back to the Rafflecopter widget and mark completion of the step. Depending on the task, the text on the button will change. It might say, "I commented," "I visited," "I shared," I tweeted" or something like that. However, it's always in the lower right corner.

Select that button to mark completion.

    1. Nope, not at all. It's kind of cool actually that we're all figuring this out together. :-)


Thank you for your comment! I can't wait to hear what you think!
