Congratulations to you guys. I must say I’m impressed with everyone of you that took part in this GiveAway. It was an awesome experience.
I witnessed an increase in traffic and engagement on this blog. This contest generated over 2000 tweets, 600+ facebook likes and over 370 comments, not counting my replies.
These winners were randomly selected using Punchtab. However, I think the number of points earned by them during the Giveaway has played a part. With Punchtab, the more the points you have, the more your chances to win. Nevertheless, more points does not guarantee winning!
Any Difference between Contest and Giveaway ?
Though these two words have often been used to mean the same thing, there are glaring features that make them so different. Before listing the winners, I want you to know how they are different.
Contests winners are drawn based on some merit or performance.
Giveaway/Sweepstakes winners are randomly picked. Any participant can win.
That’s the main difference between the 2
Now, punchtab, the piece of app that powers most GiveAways is somehow merging the two. By rewarding active participants with points (the more you share your unique punchtab link, the more points you get and the better your chance to win), an element of performance is being introduced in Punchtab Giveaways.

NB: A mail has been sent to both winners who have 72 hours to collect their prizes. As you were all required to signup to my list to fully qualify, I have sent another mail to subscribers with full instructions. If these winners are not on the list to follow the instructions, unfortunately, they’ll not be sent the prizes.
