How It Works
1. Decide what you would like to promote – Can be a bundle.
- Send 1 copy to Sly Vinyl (which we will giveaway to our writers)
- Commit to send at least 1 copy to the winner (can be more)
- That’s it. We don’t charge any fees for running the contest.
2. Pick a week
- Our contests run a single week, from Monday to Sunday. This ensure best visibility to all our readers.
3. Pick where you want to promote the vinyl – Contest Details
We will create a page on our site in the “Giveaways” section, which is shown amongst all the other vinyl on the homepage. When a reader goes to this page there will be info on the release and a Social “content gate” – see example here. The reader is required to either like your company/band or tweet mentioning your company/band to reveal the contest signup form. They will then be able to sign up for the contest. What we’ll need from you.
- The email you would like the submission to go to.
- Your social profiles you’d like to promote the vinyl through – Facebook & Twitter
- Let us know if this contest is only open to certain countries. Our readers are mainly US, Canada & Europe. We prefer contests open to all readers if possible.
4. Choose a winner
A winner should be chosen on the Monday after the contest ends.
- Contact the winner via email & cc (firstname.lastname@example.org) & get their shipping info
- Ship them the prize directly.
That’s it! Simple & Easy.
Why giveaways are a win /win
We love this process at Sly. If it doesn’t already make total sense, let us explain with a few points.
- Every label/store/band could use more online presence & this is a super cheap way to do so. Even better, you’re talking directly to a readership of vinyl addicts.
- We also give readers a way to buy your vinyl in the process, by linking to the purchase page.
- Our readers & writers get the opportunity to win free wax & everyone loves free wax.
- All signups get the option to join our weekly digest newsletter, which helps us get higher return visits.
So in simple. You spread the word & grow your social, we get happy readers.
