Two Questions

It's been a while since I linked with Amanda's Thursday Two Questions meme.
But I've been a bit busy, as you know I opened my etsy shop Lilac Gifts, creating new things it takes a while, especially that I have a full time job, so I only have few hours in the evenings to spare. On top of that or maybe that's actually the main thing  I am in my third trimester. I am getting bigger with every day and it is getting more tiring and uncomfortable. But I intend to work another four weeks and then start my maternity leave. The time goes so fast that I won't even notice when the end of July will arrive.

With all that what's happening I am trying to promote my shop,   my facebook shop page and my Giveaway.
I know it takes time and determination to make it work, but I am patient and hard working and I always listen to others if they have some good advice. So my two questions for today are:

1. How do you promote your blog, shop, facebook page?
2. Did you ever enter a giveaway, or maybe you had one yourself, how did you promote that?

 and one last thing before you go,enter to win the lovely decoupage heart from my first Giveaway


And if you have a minute to spare hop over to Ray's blog page to vote for my entry and join her photo meme

Goodness, you have a lot going on right now especially with a baby on the way.

There are some really great blog hops out there, the weekends seem to have more but you can usually find one any day of the week. Some are designed to add blog followers but others are for Facebook, Twitter and giveaways. If you look at the lower part of the sidebar on my main blog you will find quite a few links. It is time consuming as the more participants you visit the more will return the favor.

I have done a lot of giveaways, most last year, and promoted them on the blog hops for giveaways as I mentioned above. I got a lot of entries using that form of promotion. I will say that the higher priced giveaways got most of the attention.

I have also found Twitter very useful for promotions.

Oh Ewa, you're my hero in keeping so many things going with a baby to come. I wish you the best.

I found blog hopping is the best way to promote, and I don't often enter in the give-away contest.

Congrats on your new store. Such great news. We have a few people in our TTQ group who hold giveaways, check with their websites. Also there is a BlogParties tab on that have blog hops you can participate in. Most of those sites are giveaways and reviews, which is right-up your questions. Thanks for playing with us this week.

The heart is absolutely lovely.

I used to have giveaways and promoted them on sites that specialize in that (you can find them on Google).

The thing I didn't like about it is that people came to sign up for the giveaway, but didn't read anything else. It didn't seem right to me so I made a change and had "surprise" giveaways that I randomly selected from those who posted comments. Then all my blogging buddies were rewarded & I didn't mind the cost!

Good luck and congratulations on the new baby!

I don't promote my blog much. I just share on facebook or in memes or visit other bloggers.

For giveaways I enter them on online sweepstakes . com
