Giveaways are a terrific way to generate excitement in the WordPress community, while attracting interest to your service or product.
We run just one giveaway each week, and we do it on Monday so that we can all start the working week with a bit of fun.

It also includes tweets to get our 26,000+ Twitter followers excited about your giveaway and product; typically, our tweets get retweeted throughout the WordPress community, resulting in even more exposure.

Frequently Asked Questions
I’d like to run a custom giveaway without involving RafflePress and usual tools and condition you use. Is it possible?
Possibly. Please contact us and let us know your ideas.
Will you share emails of all the participants of the giveaway with us?
No. We will only send you the email addresses of the winners.
How do you choose winners? What happens after the giveaway is over?
We choose the winners randomly through RafflePress. Their names will be displayed on the widget in the original post. When the giveaway is over (normally in 1 week) we will send you the names and emails of the winners and you’ll have to send them their prizes.
Can I choose the number of days when my giveaway will be active?
We usually offer our readers 1 week for participating. But if you’d like to make it longer or shorter, it’s up to you. Our giveaways typically run from one Monday to another to get the most exposure during the work-week.
How many views/clicks/sales/entries can I expect from running a giveaway on your blog?
We don’t provide any statistic on that as it depends on your product and on how much it interests our audience. Some articles may receive hundreds of views in one day, others barely collect a dozen in 1 month. In general, we get around 4,500 page views every day on WP Mayor.
Can I provide you with the tweets for the Giveaway or do you choose yourself what to tweet?
If you have specific tweets in mind related to the giveaway, we can tweet them. If not, we will come up with our own messages.
