Hmm, Need Your Help

So, I have been thinking about holding a monthly giveaway with prizes from my shop. I thought this would be beneficial and fun for my current customers and a good way to pick up some new clients. I would hold the giveaway right here on my blog.

I need your help! Some help with these questions would be great.

- What should the prize(s) be?
- Is it ok to email my customer base once a month letting them know that there is a giveaway on my blog?
- What should the parameters be (if any) to get into the giveaway?

Thanks!!

I just decided yesterday to do monthly giveaways, and put my first giveaway up already.

I think at first it's best to just let them enter once by commenting on the post, or enter twice by blogging about the giveaway.

And make sure the prize is something worthwhile--something that they will WANT to win. :)

I have give aways every now and then. I normally ask for them to answer a question of comment on something from my shop or website. I live to make them fun.I'm having one now if you want to pop over and take a look?

Yeah I like the idea of having people fill out a questionnaire that maybe would actually be really beneficial for you & your business. And, as a blog-reader and giveaway-enterer I like answering questionnaires! :)

I think you should give away the Dog Lovers Office set!

I'd be OK with getting email once a month.
