    Hello,
    I have been missing from this forum for a while and glad to come back with some great news I have discovered. As a small online (new) business selling a unique product I came across a website called http://www.bigamericangiveaway.com . The concept is quite simple… it is a daily giveaway site, small business owners can reserve their days and offer a giveaway on their chosen day. In order to enter their giveaway the public have to increase their social media profile (like them on Facebook, Follow them on Twitter) so this is real word-of-mouth online marketing. For the small price of AU$130 I have bought around 10 days that will be shown in the US starting 2012. You probably have to go into the website to see exactly how it works as I will not do it justice in this small space……but it sounds exciting.

    What is also really cool is that they have just opened up in Aus (http://www.bigaussiegiveaway.com) and the UK (http://www.bigbritishgiveaway.com) A great way to get your brand/service/product out there at seriously affordable costs.

    We are all trying to find unique ways of promoting our business so I thought that I would share what I have found!

    PS: you can see a couple of the days I have purchased, just go into New York Feb 8th and California Feb 8th calendars…..http://www.lifetiles108.com.au

    Lifetiles108, thank you heaps for sharing the giveaway platform on this forum, as a result I found this link in my web stats and headed on over. I have now spent the last 1hour on the site – really like this community.

    Without sounding too spammy, just to explain. http://www.bigamericangiveaway.com was launched 12 weeks ago and in that time we have had 800+ giveaway days sold. As a result it was requested by both business owners and the public of the UK and Australia whether I could launch a version in their country and so, I made tentative steps to do so. http://www.bigaussiegiveaway.com and http://www.bigbritishgiveaway.com are only 2 days old (literally).

    I absolutely love small businesses and I am so passionate about working with small businesses in order to help them increase their profile. To find out more about me check out: http://www.bigaussiegiveaway.com/meet_the_founder.php

    But, enough about me, I am looking forward to engaging with you all!

    Mark

    That’s really weird. I don’t get that here and someone has just purchased through the site – I will look into that with crazydomains. Have you hit http://www.bigaussiegiveaway.com ?

    By the way I am not trying to make you out to be an idiot! This problem arose when we launched and I thought it was fixed. I don’t get why some people can and some people cannot access the site!

    Yes it seems to be ok now, although the layout seems very off in Chrome? At least I can see it now though :)

    I can’t really seem to tell, are the giveaways aimed at businesses or consumers?

    Off chrome… I will get the team on to this… the days are to be purchased by businesses as we gear up to 1st January when the public will be able to win a giveaway every single day.

    Hi Sue,
    I have just bought 6 days in Australia and 8 in the UK today!
    When you think of it…..just before this idea came along I was almost contemplating to spend $500 on one ad in a magazine. I have now bought a total of 22 days world wide and only spent just under $250. Brilliant!

    Hey everyone,

    I hear that some of you are having problems getting on to the http://www.bigaussiegiveaway.com site. This is really confusing me as I can access this here in the UK, I have friends around the world who are able to access it. However, I am completely 100% aware of the fact that some people are just getting the website of our hosting company Crazy Domains.

    Please be aware that I am looking into this and I am talking to Crazy Domains about resolving this.

    Please hang on tight.. I WILL get this fixed, even if I don’t understand the technical in’s and outs of it all!
