Kapow-Create Giveaways

If you're wondering why you haven't heard anything from your pals at Prizemojo lately, I'll tell you. I'm slow on the status posts, that's why!

Yes, our engineer(s) are way ahead of me, but enough about my incontinence, let's talk about Creating Giveaways!

  • Q: Why would I want to submit a giveaway?
  • A: Submitting giveaways is safe, easy, and obligation-free. In my mind, there are two reasons to submit one.

The first reason to submit a giveaway is so that the kinds of things you want a chance to win could be picked up by a sponsor. Think of it like sending your "I hope to see this giveaway" vibes to the Prizemojo universe. Or, if you were there in the heydays of our original site, coppergoose.com, think of it like submitting a giveaway suggestion there. The point is, when you submit a giveaway in this way, it's possible that your submitted giveaway (or a slight variation of it) will become an honest-to-Pete sponsored giveaway!

The second reason to submit a giveaway is because... you've got something you want to give away, duh! Mmmm yummy For example, let's say you've got this fake fruit bouquet that you want to give away to the Prizemojo community. You might do this to earn some karma (read more here), bring joy to your Prizemojo friends, and/or to promote your one true passion--fake fruit bouquets. Whatever. You would simply submit the "Plastic Fruit Bouquet" giveaway and then sponsor it (once that feature is implemented). Done.

  • Q: Submitting a giveaway sounds awesome. How do I do it?
  • A: It's as easy 1, 2, 3, (4)

...

  1. Click Giveaways -> Submit Giveaway
  2. Enter a Giveaway Name, then click "Create"
  3. The Giveaway Overview will be displayed. Here you can edit fields, add images, and view your pending giveaway. Note that your giveaway is private (nobody can view or sponsor it) until you publish it.
  4. When you're ready to share, remember to publish your creation. Don't worry, you can edit or delete your creation even after it's published.

    @allofmylovetess Those pages should now be un-whopper-jobbed. Thanks again!

    Sent out the screencaps. You sure you can handle whopper jobbed layouts? I mean, it's not for the faint of heart, and you do have "jolly" in your name... =P

    @allofmylovetess Hmm... if you email a screenshot to support@prizemojo.com we would be happy to take a look. I also kind of want to see what a "whopper job" looks like. ;)

    @JollyEddie No problem, glad to see it was easily fixed! One other problem I noticed while publishing, the grid layout of the "Upcoming Giveaways" as well as "Seeking Sponsor" are kind of whopper jobbed. It may just be on my end, but refreshing and restarting my browser didn't change it.

    @allofmylovetess Looks like a bug slipped in yesterday. It should be fixed now. Thanks for the report!

    I've successfully created and published a giveaway before, however when creating a new giveaway today, I was unable to publish.

    @jaidonkaia Sponsorship isn't supported yet but is currently in development. Likely the feature after next. When it is ready, any other user will be able to send sponsorship offers to you through your giveaway. From there you will be able to accept/decline them. We will have more information as it develops.

    How do you make it become sponsored?
