I would like to give away 5 copies of my ebook to 5 random people who like my product's Facebook page before June (or already liked my page and just enter the giveaway? or all fans? I am open to any similar rules).

RaffleCopter and My Contests seem to do that, but with a few drawbacks:

  • RaffleCopter seems to be a widget to embed in HTML. I would prefer a simple link, so that I can share it easily. Preferably a link that does not look too scary to the user (http://facebook.com/giveaway/MyProduct is OK, but http://facebook.com/1941274?action=like&no_confirm=yes and http://heroku.biz/wqeofew look scary)
  • Both platforms advertise themselves to people who enter the giveaway. I am OK with a bit of advertisement, preferably not too much.


  • Free
  • Hosted (I have no server to host this)

Actually this giveaway looks acceptable to me (link, URL not too ad, no ads), but I don't know what platform they are using.

If Facebook had an official (non third-party) way to create giveaways, that would be the best.

  • I'm not aware of Facebook having its own giveaway service, so that's out of the question.
