Why Should I Host A Giveaway On YouTube? 

Giveaways are a great way to build a stronger connection with new and existing fans. Here are a couple of key reasons why you should consider hosting a giveaway for your YouTube subscribers:

  • Giveaways can quickly build your following. Giveaways are one of the surefire ways to earn more subscribers by incentivizing your fans to share your videos and subscribe to your channel. Make sure you have a clear call to action before setting your giveaway as live so that you can maximize your reach. 
  • You have the opportunity to reward loyal fans. Giveaways depend on the help of new and old fans. These experiences provide your fans with valuable prizes which can help deepen the fan to creator connection. 
  • Giveaways can reignite the algorithm. When executed properly, Giveaways can have long-lasting positive effects by upping your engagement. Having a polished giveaway campaign can help you get back onto YouTube’s recommendation page. 

How To Host A Giveaway Through Your Link In Bio

Setting up a giveaway via your link in bio is a breeze! All you have to do is add the Giveaway mini app to your Koji profile. 

From there, you can set up your contest rules, share what you’re giving away, and choose a requirement for entry. Entry requirements range from watching your latest YouTube video to subscribing to your newsletter, which can all be customized within your mini app. 

You can also toggle on multiple entries if your fans are allowed to enter more than once by completing additional requirements. Whenever you’re ready to choose a winner, Koji will randomly select a follower from the list of qualified entries. 

Once your Giveaway is saved, don’t forget to share your contest with your followers! You can link out your mini app directly in your YouTube description and on your socials to earn more entries.
