Setting up your options is Easy!!
Move over to the section that says People can enter by…
Click on + Add An Entry Option
A small popup menu appears. (Browser dependant)
Click on Invent Your Own.
You could use some of the other options, but, I don’t know how well these options work. I have never known myself whether I was entered into a giveaway or not. I prefer to create my own question and let people give it an answer. This also works well for Canadians who have to answer a question in order to enter.
Some of the above options are only allowed for those users who pay for the service, so not all are available as free options for you to use.
The above popup box will appear.
I’m going to list these in order of the number of the arrows:
- Fill in the Title Of the entry. This is a title only, it will not appear on the entry on your blog.
- Fill in a description of what you want people to do.
- Add the Question you wish to pose to your entrants.
- If you wish to allow entrants to enter daily, click this option.
- If you want this question to be a requirement, check this option.
- While no arrow appears here, the next thing you will do is click the “Save This Option” button.
Try to keep your questions simple.
