Our New Giveaway Widget: Interact!

At the beginning of 2017 we ran a survey, and one question involved our giveaways. One point came through in your answers: you’d like giveaways that were super easy and simple to enter. Since then, we’ve been looking around for a solution and we’ve found it: a giveaway and quiz widget called Interact.

What caught my eye first about this widget was the clean and professional look of the giveaway form. I tried it first with our PawZaar anniversary giveaway and I’m running it now on our new weekly PawZaar giveaway page, currently for a Luck O’ The Paws Necklace. The widget is super simple; to enter, you add your email address to subscribe to our newsletter so you never miss a giveaway or a winner announcement:

You’ll then receive a confirmation page that gives you the opportunity for a few additional entries, if you choose:

If you run giveaways for your blog or brand, you’ll find that the back side of this giveaway widget is equally simple, offering you analytics including the number of viewers, the percentage who enter, the percentage who share your giveaway, and more.

Next I’m looking forward to constructing some fun quizzes for our community like this sample:

I love that many major sites are using Interact quizzes and giveaways–so I can rest assured that the widgets will be up and running for our community members, day and night.

If you haven’t entered one of our giveaways using the new Interact widget, please give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments below. If you’re a blogger or a brand looking for a new giveaway solution, we give Interact a big paws up for their attractive and efficient solution to our giveaway needs!

    I like Interact. It’s simple and easy to use 🙂 The only question I have is do you enter one time only? At the end of my shares it gives me a “I’m done. Enter giveaway again.” message so can you enter daily?

    • That’s a great question, Shelley; let me ask Interact and I’ll find out!!

  • Cathy Keisha

    I’ll have to try that the next time I do a giveaway. Is it a free tool?

    • No, it’s a paid service; there are different levels but all are paid.

  • Linda Szymoniak

    I like giveaways that give me the chance to get more entries daily – even if it’s just tweeting once a day. When it’s a giveaway I’m especially interested in, I enter daily. Those I’m not so obsessed with, I typically enter once and that’s it.

    • That’s good to know, Linda!! I’m looking at shortening the length of some of our giveaways, too. What length of giveaways is your favorite? One week or two?

      • Linda Szymoniak

        No more than two weeks. I get frustrated when I’m going back daily and it just seems like it never ends. I’ve entered giveaways that had two months and more on them, and those I typically just do a single entry and figure I have no chance of winning. Perhaps do some of the smaller giveaways as one week and those with larger or multiple prizes for two weeks? Just one suggestion.
