I’ve been running competitions and giveaway’s on my blog for some time now and I’ve found that Rafflecopter is the best way to fairly manage all the entries, because there is no chance that I can accidentally miss an entry and Rafflecopter stores all the entries in one place and it makes it much easier to fairly and randomly draw a winner.
But I have noticed that a large number of people don’t seem to know how to complete the Rafflecopter entry form. By not completing the actual entry form, your details are not stored in the data base from where the draw will occur. Effectively you’re leaving me a blog post comment but not actually being entered into the draw. Or not reading the actual instructions. This means that when I use Rafflecopter to draw the winner, either your entry is not included or you’re disqualified.
So here is a quick video that explains how to enter Rafflecopter competitions:

I hope that you found that helpful?
If not, or if anything is still unclear, then have a look at this tutorial from Rafflecopter themselves.
I hope that helps and now you can head over to two giveaways I’ve currently got running and get entering!
