Rafflecopter FTW!

First off, a big congratulations to Wendy for winning the Yoplait Cooler set.  Wendy, I sent you an email to the one you entered with so please reply so I can get your prize off to you. 

MyBlogSpark sent me the same cooler set and I love it.  The cooler is big enough to actually carry a picnic lunch in for a small family and has a nifty insulated opening in the top so you can easily reach in without unzipping everything.

I haven’t hosted a lot of giveaways in the past but thanks to Rafflecopter I really enjoyed that one.  They made it so easy – thru their site I decided what actions I wanted people to participate in to earn entries (as in “like” Yoplait Lactose Free Yogurt on Facebook) and how many entries each action was worth. 

I could manage the whole thing from their easy to use site including updates.  Change the info on the Rafflecopter site and it updates wherever you have their widget up.  When the contest was over I simply hit one button that randomly picked a winner and another button to post the winner’s name.  It was so easy I am actually excited to use their widget again so look forward to many more contests in the near future.

I’m really thrilled with the whole experience – I wound up having 62 entries and it was effortless.  Wendy may have won the Yoplait Cooler set but I think I may have had the most fun. 

Now… what else can I give away?!?

  1. I’m making a note of this name :-)

  2. I love rafflecopter! I feel fortunate to have been able to be invited to use it in beta.
    It’s so easy to use….and so easy to enter giveaways on the blogs. In fact, it’s a rare occasion for me to enter a giveaway if they aren’t using rafflecopter :)
    I’m glad you checked it out.
