Overall Satisfaction with Rafflecopter

As a magazine, we like to reach as many potential readers as possible. Occasionally this will mean bundling some of our information into an E Book and releasing it in order to get new subscribers and readers (and visits to our social media).

Reaching new users and getting them to like, subscribe and share their contact information can be tricky. This is where a product/service like Raffelcopter comes in handy.
  • Harvest new email addresses
  • Encourage social media engagement
  • Motivate hesitant potential clients (readers in our case)
  • We love a free version of every product for when you want to temporarily scale back with many cool features (we know that some features will disappear but don't pay wall too much).
  • There could be a 33% price drop
  • Have a contest style option where all users who meet the criteria can get the prize (in our case an electronic download).
  • Gather emails
  • Get people to visit social media channels
  • Easy design/layout options
  • We were able to get some engagement and some new contacts.
  • Small boost in social media visits
We now make use of WordPress plugins which are cheaper options (free) and will only return when our needs become more sophisticated. A paid for product is always going to have more functionality like adding more options, smarter AI, adding better graphics but...free is a hard price to beat when you are not making use of the product regularly.

Do you think Rafflecopter delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Rafflecopter's feature set?


Did Rafflecopter live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Rafflecopter go as expected?


Would you buy Rafflecopter again?


Best for competitions where you are able to gather likes, subscribes, social media engagement. This is where they really shine. It is also easy to add options for how people can get more chances to "win". Easy design and layout tools. It is easy to make things look good.

Not as great for skill based engagement where everyone gets rewarded automatically.

Using Rafflecopter

1 - As the Editor, i sometimes want to gather more contacts, readers, email addresses via a small giveaway to grow our reach. Normally, this will relate to the giveaway of a digital product rather than a physical one as we have many readers all over and are happy to share our digital products (which we feel are very helpful and informative).
1 - I primarily make use of the software myself to organise the giveaways as I am most familiar with it on the team. Others will look over my shoulder and we will discuss the look, feel and content etc as a team but I will click the clicks. I am an average computer user with perhaps slightly above average skill in adjusting to new software etc.
  • Grow our contacts (potential readers)
  • Grow our subscriber base (immediate readers)
  • Get more visits to our social media platforms (and therefore increased engagement).
  • We have tried to make all who enter a winner (since we freely give away our digital content quite regularly).
  • If some additional features are added we will be able to make use of it to give multiple entrants the same "prize" or giveaway item.
If there are some tweaks to the existing software then we would be happy to do so (it would then come down to competitiveness in regard to price, which is slightly too high for our comfort levels at present). We are familiar with the brand, product and offerings and so would be likely to renew our use should these factors all align.

Evaluating Rafflecopter and Competitors

  • Product Features
We had a need (to build our database and readership base via giveaways) and a quick Google search returned very positive results for Raffelcopter. After looking over a few reviews we decided it looked like a product that could work for us. We wanted to dip our toes in and see if this was a new way we could pursue in our organisation to grow our readership.
I don't think we would do anything differently. The product is a good one and met most of our needs but not all (100%) and so our evaluation and selection process was fine. It was only after making use of the system that we realised we had slightly different needs.

Rafflecopter Reliability

They know what they are doing and you can really push Rafflecopter to the max and make use of it daily or multiple giveaways daily if you wanted. Very easily (if you can keep track of things on your side or had need to do so).
The entire system works with a few clicks and some text here and there. Not hard to use so you could have multiple instances running for a bunch of different needs by different parts of your company/business (if you need that).
Hard to give this anything other than 100% (10/10) never had an issue while we used it.
No issues here. It runs smoothly. It does not clash with anything else we ran/run.
It is fast (as fast as your connection).
