I really don’t know why I didn’t think about doing this sooner, but there is a lot of power in having weekly giveaways. Or heck, if you are really ambitious, you can even do a “giveaway of the day”.
For example-purposes, let’s say you give away a new product every week . Basically each week you will find a new PLR product for really cheap that is relevant to your niche.
You will then add a new section to your website called “giveaway of the week”. This page will show a picture of this weeks product and a short description of it.
However, instead of someone paying for it with actual money, they “pay” for it by either tweeting out your website or sharing your website on Facebook.
When this happens, they will then be able to download the giveaway of the week, and since they shared your site you will get even more visitors, and those visitors will share your site, so on and forth.
It is a VERY powerful strategy when done right, and the best part is there is an awesome tool that can automate this for you.
Seriously, guys, I am not joking when I say you can increase your traffic by 1,000% when you apply this technique, so don’t take it lightly.
Now before you get started, it is essential you have your blog set up and a couple of PLR ebooks to give away. You only have to give one away per week, so finding just 4 of them is good enough for the first month.
If you aren’t sure where to get PLR content, my two favorite places are
Now just create a Giveaway of The Week page on your website and put a link to it on your Navigation Menu.
Don’t worry about actually filling that page up with content yet; we will get to that in a bit. For now, I just wanted to make sure you have the page ready to go and in your Nav Menu.
Once you have that setup, it’s time to talk about how to automate this process!

Here’s a video showing how to use the plugin:
It will generate a code for you or you can use default code. That’s the code you will place on your website so go ahead and open a Notepad document or something and paste that code in there.
Now that you have your code, it’s time to move onto creating your Giveaway page.
Making An Awesome Giveaway Page
You want to keep this page as simple as possible. I like to include the name of the Giveaway product, A short description of what it’s about, instructions on how to download it (VERY IMPORTANT) a picture of the product, and then the button so they can “pay with a share”. You can also add a “countdown” timer so they can see how much time they have left to download it. This might sound silly but trust me, putting that timer in there really does help!
And that’s it!!
Once you get that page on your site, that’s all you need to do. Traffic will come to your site, then they will see the “Giveaway of the Week” page in your Nav Menu and click on it, then share it to get their free gift and you will get an EXPLOSION of free traffic almost instantly.
I know this method sounds simple, and that’s because it is!
However, just because it is simple doesn’t mean it doesn’t work. Having a giveaway on your site where people can pay for it with either a “tweet” or a Facebook share is incredibly powerful.
And the best part about this is once you get it all set up there really isn’t much additional work. All you need to do is change the giveaway once per week, but that takes no more than 10 minutes. I don’t know about you, but I don’t mind sacrificing 10 minutes of my week to basically double my traffic overnight.
Remember, take action on this. I don’t want this to be another method you learn about and then don’t apply!
