    Hi all

    I have a few questions about giveaways. I want to do giveaways on my youtube channel. I'm talking about real giveaways and not fake ones. But I want to monetise them to make a profit out of them. Any thoughts on what the best way is?

    Also, I want them to be fun and fair. Any ideas how to implement some sort of game and the winner gets the price (Guess this/that, not just picking a random number)? I have seen youtubers use gleam to run competitions, any thoughts?

    Legal issues that I have to take into account? I have found a sweepstakes template that I can put on pastebin and link to it in my video.

    Thanks

    I dont have any experience in this but the simplest way to do something like this is to make at leas an email submition rule where you collect their emails and after that you can monetize them....

    Let them fill in a survey to participate in the giveaway. And add a fake counter with a really low amount of people who have participated, this makes people want to fill in the survey, just because the odds seem really high to win

    You can use CPA offers to monetize your traffic.

    Lead them to a website / landing page. Main thing here is to build a list that you can send your offers too down the road.

    Try to use SumoMe's Welcome Mat on your website too if you want to capture more emails.

    You won't make money off of them immediately, but it's an investment for you. You'll reap the rewards eventually if you do it right.

    You mean those surveys where they have 5 options to choose from where they to sign up for advertisement? Like they always do with generators (ex: free GTA V money, xbox points generator, itunes card generator,...) . I don't like those things.

    Thank you all for your input.

    Today I started working on my landing page, it's almost ready and I have CPA offers on them. Now I need to start working on my email list and giveaway videos.

    Any idea on how to make the giveaways more interactive?
    Tools that can help me organize the participants?

    I plan on doing running giveaways with having my traffic do a CPA offer before viewing giveaways. My main concern is that by having them do a CPA offer it's kind of having them "pay", would it make it a lottery? Making the giveaway illegal in a few states
