An Alternate Method to Share Giveaways on Pinterest

19 Crimes Contest

It seems rare these days that a sweepstakes doesn’t offer some form of social media sharing for extra entries. The go-to sharing options are Facebook and Twitter, but what about Google+, Pinterest, Instagram and a myriad of other social sites? If the contest form/app doesn’t offer those options, how do you share on those platforms potentially increasing your odds of winning a grand or secondary prize?

The 19 Crimes contest is a perfect example of a promotion with limited sharing options and offering unlimited entries to win, yet their entry form only offers four ways to share:

  1. Facebook,
  2. Twitter,
  3. via email,
  4. and a unique share link.

So how are you to share on visual social media sites like Pinterest if you are only offered a share link?

You use the images on the contest pages.

After you enter this specific promotion you will notice there are several images on the share page. If you hold your mouse over the images the Pinterest PIN IT button appears. Clicking upon it will open your Pinterest account and you then pin the giveaway on the appropriate board you have created for just such an occasion. Again, ensure you use the unique share link you are given so the extra entries can be tracked back to you.

To share on other sites you can either use the plain link or to add a specific image, hover over the graphic you wish to use, right click, then SAVE AS.

If entering via your mobile phone you can screenshot any image you would like to use. Again, use the unique sharing link you have been giving to promote the giveaway.

SHORT RULES: Win GotStyle gift cards. Open to Canada (excluding Quebec). Ends at 11:59am (Noon) on Wednesday December 24th 2014. One entry per person plus unlimited referral entries. FULL RULES

DISCLAIMER: As per FTC requirements, I am required to disclose I was hired by the ad agency for the contest sponsor to promote this giveaway.

Win Digital Wilderness

Posted on: November 4th, 2014 by carolyn

Carolyn & Fulvio  Book Launch Party

It’s wonderful when you can stay in contact with people you meet on your journey through life. Fulvio is one of those people.

I met Fulvio when I worked at Aztech New Media in 1996. He was in the programming department and I worked in sales. We became fast friends. We even socialized outside the office. I remember one grand weekend my ex-husband and I spent up at his family cottage with his cousin who had just arrived from Italy not speaking any English. Lots of laughs as Fulvio translated everything we said back and forth while we fished or hung out around the camp fire.

So like many friends in his life, we were surprised when he wrote a book. Not just any book. A riveting, thrilling, page turning novel. I went to his book launch on September 23rd of this year in the common room of CSI, the Centre for Social Innovation in Toronto.

Digital Wilderness  Fulvio Reading An Excerpt

I saw old friends, made new ones and ate wonderful hors d’oeuvres, all before Fulvio read.

I didn’t know what to expect as I had no details about his book in advance of this event. Fulvio began to read and I was gripped. I had no idea he was such good author. I am a huge fan of mystery novels and thrillers. I couldn’t put down The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and I felt Digital Wilderness was in that league. Thankfully he was selling copies at the event so I promptly bought one! (Now I just need some free time to read!!)

Check out the trailer for the book. Doesn’t it make you wish it was already a movie?!

Now is your chance to win a copy from Fulvio via Goodreads!
