I am going to tell you that I only recently started using Rafflecopter for running blog contests here on DragonBlogger.com but now that I have used the service I don’t see any reason to run a contest any other way.
Rafflecopter puts you in complete control of the contest and allows you to set the way readers can enter your contest. It also manages all entries as well as making sure the contest only accepts entries when the contest actually starts and closes the contest when it ends automatically.
I did a special 7 minute long YouTube video tutorial on how to create a contest with Rafflecopter and I encourage you to watch it:

But, there’s more. Rafflecopter is in invite only Beta mode right now, however DragonBlogger.com fans can get special instant signup access to Rafflecopter through my link. You don’t need to wait for an invite and you get to start creating contests immediately.

Rafflecopter is also 100% free and costs nothing! You have seen Rafflecopter in use on other blogs like Famous Bloggers
If you are a blogger or want to run contests on a website or through social media, then Rafflecopter is one of the best ways to keep track of all your entries and manage your contest.
Rarely do I find something that is just so easy to use and incredibly efficient that I get this excited, but I guarantee my fans that I like this contest service so much I will be using it in almost every upcoming contest on my blogs.
