Welcome back to ‘Organise Your Blog’, a weekly series full of fabulous free printables to help you organise every aspect of your blog. From editorial calendars, to daily blogging checklists, to a printable to help you join in with linky’s quicker!

*Please note* You don’t necessarily need to print these, they are great to use on your computer too!

So many of you enjoyed your free Sponsored Post printable last week. If you missed out, then don’t forget to go back and get it.

Whether you’re a pro-blogger or a hobby blogger, there may have come a time when you’ve decided to host a giveaway for your readers.

If you have or you’re planning too, then this weeks free ‘Giveaway Tracker’, will definitely come in handy.

HOSTING A GIVEAWAY

Whether you’ve been asked to host a giveaway by a brand, or you’ve got something you’d love to give to your readers, running a giveaway or competition is a fun way to give back to your readers and at the same time increase your following.

If you’ve never set up a competition or giveaway before, it’s really easy to do. There are two great websites you can use that do it all for you.

My personal favourite is Rafflecopter. It’s so easy to use! I only ever use the free version and it gives me all of the options I need.

If you need help setting up and promoting your competition, then Stevie from ‘A Cornish Mum has written a great post on ‘How To Make Your Blog Competition A Success‘.

Also, if you need to boost your giveaway then Rachel from ‘U Me And The Kids’ has a great ‘Competition Linky‘ that runs every week.

GIVEAWAY TRACKER

As per usual, an editable version will be available at the bottom of the page, so you’ll be able to add or remove bits as you desire. Here’s a quick peek at what the ‘Giveaway Tracker’ looks like:

Giveaway Tracker Printable

WEBSITE/ITEM

As you can see I’ve included boxes for both the website of the product and the item itself. You may host giveaways off your own back so feel free to remove this part and title it in your own words.

PAGE VIEW/ENTRIES

I like to keep track of the amount of entries I’ve had from each competition. This is so I can see what is more popular with my readers, which is helpful for when it comes to running future competitions. I know other bloggers prefer to keep track of the page views so feel free to change this or remove it all together.

CONTACT

The contact information boxes have been incredibly useful. I once had an incident where I couldn’t find the brands e-mail again (inboxes can be a nightmare) and it took me a a long time to find it so that I could contact them with the winners information.

Keeping both the brand contact and the winner e-mail somewhere you can see, makes it so much easier and saves time when it comes to communication.

    Brilliant idea for keeping track of the winner’s and brand’s details! I’m forever digging through my email trying to remember a PRs name! Thanks for the mention too lovely,

    I’ve never run a giveaway before I’ll keep this in mind when I do. Have you thought of making your blog series into an e book? I think it would be a really handy resource for people.

      Giveaways are definitely great ways to boost your engagement and page views. I have thought about making them into a book but I really have no idea about how to go about it. I might look it up now actually. Thank you so much, this comment has made my day. x

      If it helps, at the end of each post there is a version you can download and you can just use it on your computer rather than printing it out. I do for most of these. xx

    This is a great idea! I’m a hardcore comper, but I’ve only hosted a few giveaways on my own blog so far. It’s been great to see how it all works from the other side. 🙂 #KCACOLS

    I am loving these blog organisers Chloe – you give so many tips and and having the sheets is such a fab idea too! I think they will be really helpful for newer bloggers and I’m sure even established bloggers would find some tips or the organisation helpful.Thanks so much for sharing #KCACOLS
