Default Giving away stuff to increase traffic?

I am doing a youtube channel and blog teaching on health topics. I am giving away a holiday prize this month to get more traffic to my sites.

Has anyone else done this?

How did it work for you and where did you post to get more traffic?

Wondering if anyone has any tips for me?

giving away something will not increase traffic to your videos or blog

unless a lot of people social share your stuff, but if no one sees it no one will share it.

your plan needs to be traffic generation.

Typically I give away things to persuade visitors to get on my email list.

I could give away a free car and it wouldn't matter at this point.

What I plan to do is contact blog owners in my niche who already have a huge amount of traffic and ask them to host my giveaway. There are tons of bloggers willing to host a giveaway if you abide by their terms and conditions, and sometimes fees. This way I will get powerful backlinks and get my products and blog out there. Only when I become more established will I start hosting my own giveaways. Right now, it's best to go with someone who already has a following.

For starters, here is one blogger you can try: Rich Mom - Free Work at Home Mom Business Help for Mom Entrepreneurs, WAHM Forum -

How about starting a contest? But you'd have to buy traffic at first to so that they may bring more referral traffic.

The way to do it is by giving away stuff via competitions. And to compete people have to share, comment, like, etc. I don't do it on Youtube, but it works very effectively on FB, and I imagine some people would practically give me a slap for even saying that much. LOL
