I know a lot of people think Rafflecopter is very hard & confusing, but once you have grasped it, it is really quick & easy to use.
Why does Family Clan use Rafflecopter?
We use Rafflecopter for our giveaway as we can verify every entry & see when someone is cheating. Using Rafflecopters rival Gleam doesn’t give us this option.
So how do I use Rafflecopter?
We will take you through it step by step.
- We ALWAYS have a mandatory question, if you don’t complete this none of your entries will count. The extra tasks are optional but do give you additional entries into our giveaways.
- Scroll down the page until you see the Rafflecopter form & click on what looks like a V on the right side, where the arrow is pointing to.
