100 T-Shirt Promotion Ideas – #2 Run T-Shirt Giveaways

Idea #2 Run Interactive Giveaways, Sweepstakes, or Contests

Who doesn’t love to receive free stuff in exchange for barely nothing? Running an interactive giveaway on your Facebook Page or Blog is a great way to interact with your customers and grow your t-shirt brand.

Why? because you get to:

  • Grow your Social Media followers base
  • Grow your email list
  • Ask questions and learn about your customers
  • Drive traffic to your site or shop

Here are two tools I’ve used before which I’m sure you will find very easy to use and will increase user engagement:

1. Rafflecopter

Rafflecopter makes it simple to launch and manage a giveaway for any brand, on any website, as much as you want, with no I.T. help required and best of all, it is mobile friendly. The available options in the free version are: Make participants respond a question, follow a Twitter account, tweet about the giveaway, and send participants to a Facebook page. You decide how many points the participant gets by completing a certain task.

Get to know every Rafflecopter feature by visiting their pricing section. Here is a screenshot of how the Rafflecopter’s widget looks like in the free version. You can also play with the tool here.

Once you are satisfied with your widget, you get the option to embed it in a blog or website or run it on a Facebook page.

And this is how it will look on your Facebook page.

2. Gleam

Run beautiful competitions on your website or Facebook Page with Gleam. Add your prize, choose your actions, embed on your site, all in under 3 minutes. You can choose between several pre-made “rewards” or “competitions” which you can copy and personalize to make it fit to your t-shirt giveaway’s specifications.
