Every blogger understands the overall goal of their website; and that is to get their name out there as much as possible. The more exposure a blog receives, the more traffic, revenue and more importantly fans it will attract. As the saying goes, “a good blog promotion is as important as having a stable blog hosting server“. Giving away something for free is a great way to drive traffic and attract more attention to your Web site or blog. So, here are five fun websites where you can promote your blog giveaway.
This website is basic in design, but really packs a punch. Because the best websites sometimes charge a fee; it is great to find one that only requires a reciprocal link on your blog in order to host or feature a giveaway. This is similar to the “I scratch your back and you scratch my back” mentality. Navigation for searching giveaways and sweepstakes is very user-friendly thereby making it easy for users to find listed giveaways and freebies such as yours. However, for bloggers who prefer not to post a return link to Sandy’s Realm; there is a fee of $20 per sweepstakes. Furthermore, interested users can also reap the benefits of a featured giveaway for up to 10 days. This, of course, includes the use of a banner and a first page listing.
Cash Net Sweeps
If you’re looking for a Web site that does nothing but promote giveaways; then this is the place for you. There are countless ways to sort through giveaways including through the use of categories like Today’s New, Skill Contests, Ending Soon and much more. The best part of this Web site is that it is actually free and even though publishers are politely asked to post a reciprocal link on your blog, it is not mandatory. However, be prepared to see a quite a few adverts and promotions since this is the only way the site owner can pay for the maintenance of the site.
You have to be a member of this website. And guess what? There is a big bonus – it is completely free and doesn’t cost anything. However, it is important to read the guidelines because there are rules and regulations that must be followed when posting a giveaway. Publishers are instructed to answer questions pertaining to their blog and giveaway(s) so as to ensure that Prizey promotes it in the right area(s). That being said, you can hold up to three blogs on one account and it’s an effective way to gain exposure depending on the type of promotion you are making. Furthermore, each blog is given a FREE banner to promote their giveaway as an added incentive.
ContestHound is probably one of the best Web sites out there when it comes to promoting your blog and giveaway. It has been featured in many magazines and online newsletters and is a very popular name amongst many households. Consequently, there is a membership cost with the best deal/rate around $59 per week for an advert. Whilst this price may be considered expensive, it is usually a good deal as one of the best of its kind.
Contest For Moms
ContestForMoms is another popular website that not just promotes contests and giveaways but also advertises free items, popular baby contests and even top iPhone Apps from the site developer herself. The only requirement for promoting a giveaway is a reciprocal link. Publishers also have the option of sharing their giveaways via social networks.
With an array of blogger giveaway Web sites readily available on the Internet, finding a perfect one for your giveaway marketing needs may prove to be a little more difficult than expected. However, by combining your Internet marketing skills with our advice, you could potentially reach all corners of the blogosphere with just one free gift. So then, what are you waiting for? Take advantage of this publicity tools and start rewarding your readers on your way to creating and promoting that successful blog that meets all your goals and aspirations.

I agree Ira. Promoting a blog giveaway via one of the sites above or any of the others out there – can make the difference between a so so contest and one with lots of entries.
