GiveAways: always a WIN for Followers | #capeMahala

Let's be absolutely fair - Some of us enjoy giveaways and competitions in social media and more of us are just fed-up with the way these promotional shout-outs crowd out good content in our time lines.

Every once in a while, a giveaway comes along that grabs my attention. In this case, I am fortunate enough to actually run one! in partnership with one of the largest booking site in Africa, SafariNow. The company opted to support local tourism and travel, with their #TravelLocalSA campaign: Love Local and Win :-)


In running this particular giveaway, I called upon trusted followers to suggest a fair mechanism for a random draw - given the size of the prizes, e.g. R4500 weekend stay for two, from Coopmanhuijs Boutique Hotel in Stellenbosch - this week.

And I opted on the funky and efficient system of RaffleCopter, which integrated the computerised draw as a third-party provider of great giveaways. And best of all, it is possible to link it to my Facebook page for easy access, here.

IMPORTANT: The #TravelLocalSA GiveAway works like this over the next few weeks:

- Keep an eye on #TravelLocalSA on Tuesday mornings after ExpressoShow, SABC3

- Simply Enter each Draw via the qualifying (Re)tweet - One Entry

Your native RT will be added as your first entry with Rafflecopter. And then! Increase your chances in the random draw through a few more Entries ;-) A maximum number of entries applies per participant.

- The Draw happens each Friday via our @CapeTown account. Good Luck! and thanks for supporting local social travel in South Africa... Update: Some Draws are on the following Monday due to number of entrants!

And thank you very much to SafariNow and to the wonderful sponsors!
