Today’s Tip: Giveaways

There is some debate about whether artists should giveaway their art. Should you giveaway a large painting? Probably not. But why not something small, like an ACEO or a fine art giclee? No matter what side you take, giveaways are a great way to attract visitors to your blog. Who doesn’t want something for FREE?

What does it take?

Blog giveaways don’t have to be complicated. All you need to do is choose the artwork up for grabs, set the dates of the giveaway, and explain to visitors how to enter. The most common way to enter a giveaway is for visitors to leave a comment on the blog post. You can then assign each comment a number and put those into a drawing for the winner. Many bloggers use for their drawing but some just throw the names into a hat!

If you are unsure about your giveaway post it never hurts to see how others organize their giveaways. Check out my own holiday giveaway! I used WordPress’ feedback form so visitors could enter without leaving a comment but the rest is no different than your basic giveaway.

Rules of thumb:

1. Be sure to make it clear if your giveaway is open to international entries.

2. Don’t forget to share the news of your giveaway with as many people as you can!
