How do Giveaways Work

We all know that building our list online is one of the key components of creating online success in your business.  Sometimes, it seems like that’s all you hear from the experts.  Build your list.  Grow your list.

There are many ways to build your list and one of the fastest ways is to use Giveaways.

Not all giveaways are created equal however, if setup properly, giveaways can build your list fast!

This year there have been many giveaway sites launch (there is a reason for that .. they work) and you may wonder how effective these sites can be if there are new ones being launched all the time.

The secret to Giveaways is using them!

So how exactly do Giveaways work?

1.   You signup as a contributor (don’t worry if you don’t have anything to contribute, help for this is further down the post)  Upgrade is possible as this creates more traffic to your links!

2.  Login and setup your profile and payment information.

3.  Setup your gift!    For many of you, you are likely thinking … “I don’t have a gift”.  Help is here.  There are many private label rights programs that are available for you to setup to give away.  You can do a google search for “PLR Products” or spend $9.95 to join My Money Fish to access over 3000 give away products.

4.  Share your Giveaway link to sponsor more people into the system.  When you sponsor others, you earn points that you can assign to your Gifts.  The higher points for your gifts the closer your gift will be to the top of the list and you will get more subscribers this way.

When you join a Giveaway site and upload a ‘gift’, your list will grow as visitors download your free gift.  It’s so simple and SO viral!

The newest Giveaway site and likely one of the MOST popular each year is the Easter Giveaway.  Guido makes this whole process so simple, once you are registered and you login to the Easter Giveaway site, you will see all the instructions you need to guide you through the setup process.

I highly recommend that you upgrade if possible – you will earn more income and receive more traffic as an upgraded member.

If you have never used a Giveaway site before or have used them but without success, then now is your chance to get the results you need.

Join the Easter Giveaway and let’s connect and make it work for you.  Add me to Skype and let’s get this setup!  My Skype ID is janetlegere.

  1. Hi Janet,
    Another example of how effective and efficient you are at taking complex concepts and delvering them in simple, straightforward and more importantly, doable bits.

    Thanks again for supporting your followers so consistently!
    With gratitude!


  2. OK, let’s be honest. I have been scared of getting involved in giveaways…because of lack of experience (what do I do with them once I get them on ‘my list’)! One would think the answer is obvious, not for me (a little thick). But after the 3D conference today and your most excellent post perhaps I should jump in this time…thanks Janet…always clear.

  3. Yes, JV Giveaway Events do work! I’ve built a list of over 1,000 subscribers in a few months using giveaway events.

    I learned a lot during that time and have written a special report (free to download and distribute).

    I also maintain a list of events and offer more support on a special page I’ve setup on my blog, just for giveaways.

    P.S. I also manged to get that page on the first page of Google – but that’s a different issue 🙂

  4. Hi Janet,

    I am the owner of
    Heavy Hitters Text Ad Exchange.
    Can I add this as my “product”
    to giveaway site?
    I could offer free JV membership
    to the subscribers.
    What do you think?


  5. Yes, that’s right Watchara,

    That is how your list is built … when you submit a gift others you build your list.

    I trust that helps,


  6. Just to let everyone know – in case you missed it – click my name above this post and you will see my special page on giveaways. Lots of fee information there 🙂

  7. I have a give away that I could use but I am currently trying to sell this ebook I wrote for $9.95.If I do decide to use this I should take it off the site where it is for sale so as to not make someone mad that might purchase it and then find out somehow that I was giving it away on another site correct.So now I await your reply as to what is a good give away site for anyone to join that does not need a free gift to give away and then to start attempting to build a list.

  8. I think you are a bit confused Steve … and the fact is … if you were to use your 9.95 ebook to give away you would build a huge list of buyers for future products. You need to think outside the box.

    The gift I give away is also for sale. No need to change…. not everyone you know is going to join the Giveaway but by using the Easter Giveaway you could get in front of a lot more eyes.

    I trust that helps,


  9. Hi Janet,
    Thank you for this information. I am a Giver,so having this site available to me is so great a blessing. Thanks again Janet and have a great day.


  10. Steve, Janet is right. Use freebies to get your foot in the door, establish a relationship with followup freebies, then try for actual sales and upgrades. The web is full of free stuff you in turn can offer free.
    Remember, software attracts more prospects than ebooks, there is free software at the no Cost Zone.

  12. Janet –

    I am going to start calling you “pay it forward Janet,” because you always do! It is great that you are sharing this here and I likewise would highly recommend getting involved in this if you really want to build your subscriber list.

    Great advice on the PLR – this is the perfect way to leverage PLR if you do not have a product of your own. As always great information and actionable ideas.

    There are no mysteries to success online – just act on the great ideas provided by those your follow and come up with a few of your own!

    Have a blessed weekend on the other side of the Rockies!

  14. Hi Janet,
    Thank you so much for another wonderful Post.
    I have a lot of Free Gifts in my Files, May I use those to Contribute to the Easter Giveaway?
    Thanks Janet, Lucille

  15. Hello Janet

    Great Video,
    When I first start i was told you must build a mailing list from day one, It took me a year before I took action , and I wished I had started building my mailing list from day.
    Giveaways are great to get new people to your list

  16. Giveaways are a really good tool to get started in building your list. I have seen countless successful internet marketers that chose not to build a list right away and later found that they had made a big mistake. Start with giveaways and then graduate into adswaps!
