    Rafflecopter and Punchtab were the awesome giveaway widgets that I know. Rafflecopter will be the best if one want to promote his giveaway daily on social networks. Whereas Punchtab is the best to refer more people to enter in the giveaway. But I haven’t tried and used Promosimple.

  9. says

    Thanks Ryan for your contribution, yes a good and well hosted giveaway can shoot a blog into the limelight and could be the game changer you dream of in blogging.

  10. says

    I am considering Punchtab for my next giveaway, just as you said PunchTab improves entrants into a contest more than Rafflecopter, though such feature only exist as a premium feature on Rafflecopter.

  11. says

    Hello Nwosu,
    I am a total novice when it comes to giveaway. I have never done it before but very soon, i will be venturing the rout. thanks for the useful information do have a blessed week :)

  12. says

    Great alternative between i’m familiar with punch tab not heard of the other one would like to check it out with my other upcoming giveaway

  13. says

    Hey bro,
    Good to know about these alternatives
    I started off with rafflecopter but soon got so attracted to punchtab because of some of its unique features. The unique link and point reward feature helps you get more traffic as participants help pull hits to their referral link. Though this too constitute a source of link spamming, I’m still studying it out carefully.

    I have also been on giveawaytools but still to use it
    promosimple is what I just found here on the list. I may have time to check it closer

    Thanks for the list bro

  14. says

    ps: Currently I’m running an awesome giveaway and anyone reading this comment can see Punchtab in action :)

    Thank you for including PromoSimple in your round-up of alternatives. We have a variety of new features that will be released very soon to further expand the functionality of the PromoSimple platform (including new Free features). If we can be of any help for setting up your future giveaways please do let us know!
    Thanks again,

    I want to embed the Google + feature into the giveaway. Do any of these use Google + or just Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter?

  17. says

    I’m so happy that I came across with your article. I used rafflecopter in my first giveaway (free version) and was not what I expected. I will try Punchtab to see how it works.

    You can use Rafflecopter, Woobox, Punchtab, Promosimple and Giveaway Tools with GiveawayFrenzy and get even more social shares by locking your giveaway before they even enter it. So depending on which tool you use you can get more out of it.
