Hey Everybody,

I have a new blog that has been up since March, but I'm trying to drum up my traffic.  I noticed that A LOT of people do giveaways, and I thought that might be a start.  But I have no clue of where to begin.

It's my understanding that its best to do something worth $50 or more.  Do any of you get free things from sponsors to give away on your blogs?  Also, do you pay for the shipping,  or does the sponsor ship it directly.  I don't have a lot of money, so I really want to keep my  spending down.

I see so many people doing this, that I'm thinking there must be a way.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again,

Nicki Woo

Hi Nicki,

As far as I know, most bloggers (at least Mommy Bloggers) host giveaways with prizes that come directly from the companies/PR agencies.

If you're new to giveaways, then it's a good idea to start off with a giveaway that you host yourself if you don't currently have a company/PR rep working with you yet.

Check out this link that gives some good info about how to get started with giveaways: http://savvyblogging.net/how-to-offer-blog-giveaways/
Kristina,

Thanks for that information, and for taking the time to help me out. I'll check out the link you listed above right now. Hopefully I'll be a little closer to figuring this whole thing out. Thanks again.
Kristina,

That link was perfect. I think it might help me to propel myself forward!

My Blog also started in March. I decided I wanted to have an ongoing Flip Flop review and givaway section. I wrote everyone I could find and asked if they would be willing to help me out. I explained to them that although my blog was new I was very active on Twitter and Facebook. I was very surprised to get 4 companies right away that wanted to help. I learned along time ago, if you want something it never hurts to ask, the most someone can say is no. Good Luck
Happy to help :)
