    Nice app recommendation. I’ve noticed many times these types of add-ons might slow your site page load. Have you ever seen this type of concerns for this app? Also does it impact SEO at all? Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Bharat, Great tutorial I came here from FB and got really valuable information from your this post. What do you think which one is better. Roffelcopter or this PunchTab?

      Hi Raheem, thanks for dropping by. We tried both Rafflecopter and PunchTab, in our view PunchTab is a bit ahead when compared to RC. For your next giveaway try PunchTab and you surely will like it.

    Thanks for this article. I just finished my first Punchtab giveaway, and I am sold! It was amazing to see how it got people sharing and helping spread the word about my free handcrafted jewelry giveaways. I wanted to do some research on a comparison between them and Rafflecopter and the need to manually validate entries on Rafflecopter is a big turn off. For what I need to do, Punchtab offers more than enough features and great flexibility…for free! Great app and very responsive support. I do both monthly and random giveaways. This will be my last month doing the monthly manually – way too much work. I only wish I could use Punchtab for both, but you can only have 1 giveaway active at a time. So, I’m going to use them for my monthly and most likely Giveaway Tab on Facebook for my randoms beginning next month.

    Does Punchtab work for blogs? For some reason, the snippet keeps disappearing whenever I insert it into my blog. I tried it in my blog (where I don’t actually want it) and it worked. Am I missing something or is Punchtab only designed for blogs?

    I’m having the same issue as Leslie (above). But when I tried pasting in the html code in both my and my site, it didn’t work. Nothing shows up. When I go back to the text view, the snippet has disappeared.

    I have used Punchtab for the last few months for my free jewelry giveaways and LOVE it. I was amazed at how easy it is to set up, you can involve more than one blogger or facebook page, and excited about how fast people took advantage of all the various ways to earn entries. After having done it manually, I’m never going back :-) Love it and highly recommend. Also, they provide access to emails (if you allow users to sign up via email as well as FB) which can be exported.

    Hey Bharat, it’s really an useful tutorial for me. I was thinking about Punchtab alternatives. Rafflecopter is the one I have found equally useful. The PunchTab UI is good still this post adds a lot of value.

    Hello, Bharath. I am currently running a Punchtab giveaway on my website which is very useful for gaining FB fanpage followers. My question is how to I move from the sidebar widget which host the link to the actual “Punchtab Giveaway” BLOG POST, to a plugin that can be hosted on all pages at the bottom of each blog post? (creating more of an opportunity to entice visitors to join the FB Fan Page…)
