Giveaways and Free Stuff Galore!

by Kristina on December 24, 2012 · 1 comment

Good Morning Dinks and Merry Christmas Eve.  You may have noticed that we have started including giveaway websites in our weekly Friday roundups; this is because I have recently discovered the world of online giveaways. Now each and every Friday we will share some great posts from our favourite bloggers around the web and we will also be sharing some great giveaways that we find while surfing around the web.

I admit that in the past I have visited coupon websites in order to print out coupons for my favourite products and I have shopped online with cash back rewards websites but I have never actually participated in online giveaway and sweepstakes websites until now. I have to admit that I am a big fan!

Enter for your chance to win with giveaways

If you are new to the world of online giveaways and the concept of getting something for nothing is still foreign to you (as it is to me) then let me help you out with a little explanation:

Giveaway websites such as Take Our Stuff are websites that are absolutely free of charge for everyone.  All you have to do is sign up to their email list and you will receive a notice directly into your inbox each and every time a new giveaway has launched.  Some of the items that they have already given away include a time capsule, a Star Wars bundle and even an old-school Nintendo package.

Take Our Stuff is currently giving away an amazing blown-glass heart to remind everyone of all the love out in the world. Visit Take Our Stuff and enter for your chance to win.

Why give away something for nothing?

There are several other blogs and giveaway websites around the web that either host their own individual reviews and giveaways or that serve as a directory of current contests and giveaways. So why do people and websites give something away for free? The answer is simple, because they have some stuff that they want to get rid of or because they receive products from companies who wish to host a review and giveaway in order to promote their products.

Online giveaways and reviews are a great way for companies to promote their products, services and website.  It doesn’t cost them anything except for a few product samples (which they probably write off anyways). The online world is a new form of cost efficient marketing for companies. Bloggers are active on social media outlets and a simple review or giveaway on a blog can reach thousands of potential clients for the exact same cost as if it was going to reach only one person.

If you have a product, a service or a new book coming out I suggest that you tap into the online world of marketing because it’s a great way to spread the word about you, your website and your products.

This isn’t ALWAYS true, I have paid to be a part of an ipad Mini giveaway with some other bloggers. The main point is to gain exposure. Having a higher number of facebook likes and twitter followers makes your site more legit.
