How it Works
Kollabb is for experienced bloggers who are familiar with working with product giveaways or product reviews with advertisers/brands. In the past, bloggers and brands would use spreadsheets, google docs, and hundreds of emails to organize a giveaway. Now, you can organize everything at Kollabb.com.
Join the website. Sign in with your email address and password and then fill out the appropriate information. The more information you provide, such as number of followers and links to all of your social media accounts, the greater chance that a brand will want you to participate in their promotion.
Then browse a list of the available promotions. Just visit Promotions to view available giveaways and product reviews being sponsored. If you see one that you like, click on the link or the view more details link. Then you will be able to see all of the terms and conditions as well as the description of the promotion and its run dates. Be sure to read everything as each promotion may have different requirements.
If you are interested in joining the promotion, follow the instructions towards the bottom of the page. If it is a giveaway, enter your free giveaway link, typically your twitter handle or your facebook brand page url. If it is a product review, enter your email address. Hit 'Kollabb' and that information will then be sent to the sponsor of the promotion.
If the promotion is a giveaway, the sponsor will include your free link in the rafflecopter or giveaway tools widget. You will need to post this widget on your blog and promote it to your users. Enter the URL to your post on your profile page. Find the promotion in your list of promotions that you are participating in, hit edit, and enter your link in the post url. Everyone wins when everyone promotes the giveaway as it attracts more entrants, and everyone involved will gain followers. You will get an email from Kollabb or the sponsor when the widget is available to be placed on your blog.
If the promotion is a product review, then they will contact you directly about organizing a way to get the product to you. You will also be required to post a review of the product on your blog. Enter the URL to your post on your profile page. Find the promotion in your list of promotions that you are participating in, hit edit, and enter your link in the post url.
Be sure to promote the product review and giveaways to your social media followers to encourage more interaction and to ensure that the brands see positive results. When the brands are happy, they will provide more free products and giveaways!

A giveaway is when you choose to give a single product away to the randomly drawn winner from the Rafflecopter or Giveaway Tools widget. It is a great way to gain new followers for an extremely low cost per follower price. A recent giveaway campaign acquired new followers for only $0.07 per! The larger the value of the product, the better the giveaway performs. We suggest products ranging from $150-$350 dollars. Hot products such as Kindle Fire, iPad Minis and Chromebooks work extremely well, but other lesser value product can also be effective.
Do you have a new product a product that needs some extra push. Create a product review campaign and have the influential bloggers from Kollabb write about your product and introduce it to their thousands and even millions of followers. It is a great way to gain awareness inexpensively. You will need to provide products for each of the bloggers that participate.
You will have total control over who you work with for your giveaway or product review. If a blog doesn't fit your branding or you went over your budget and can only provide 20 products instead of 25, you can remove blogs from your the list of participants. Just go to the promotion page on the site and click the remove button next to the blogger. Remember though, that it is important to have a diverse set of bloggers in your campaign to get the widest variety of potential new followers.
