Help Us Test Rafflecopter
Congratulations winners, email has been sent.
I tested out Rafflecopter for giveaways last week but I’m not completely sold on it.
What I liked about Rafflecopter:
- Easy to set up
- Can see all entrants easily and validate their entries
- Can email winner directly from the website
- You guys like it
- Loved that entrants can tweet right from the widget about the contest
What I didn’t like about Rafflecopter:
- It doesn’t display well on small mobile devices (doesn’t resize)
- Seems to slow down some websites
- Some people mentioned it doesn’t always load or doesn’t load at all.
- The inability to change the look of the widget. (I’d like more flexibility)
I need to take a closer look at the problems and see if the benefits outweigh the problems or see if I can come up with a solution for the problems. For now, I don’t think we’ll be using Rafflecopter exclusively, but this may be a really good option for our bigger giveaways. Thank you all for your input and help in testing!
