Also, here is a list of answers to all the Frequently Asked Questions relating to my giveaways:
1) There is the initial post, a few reminders throughout the week period to accommodate all time zones as well as the fact that only about 20% of my fans are online at any given moment. And the final post, which announces the winner. Only one entry is required per giveaway. If you don't see the announcement of the winner in your news feed , just visit my Facebook page right before you go to bed and the most recent post will always be the one with the announcement. :)
The winner is always chosen at random and I take this very seriously for my own peace of mind. I will repeat this time and time again, we do not hand pick the winners! It would be both immoral and very risky, because people are bound to find out one way or another. I know that no matter how many times I say this, there is still going to be someone saying: “Random, yeah right.” Well trust me, running these giveaways and finding out who the winner is going to be is just as exciting for me as it is for all of you! :) I get an amazing PR boost from these giveaways, which allows me to keep creating art, so in return I am more than happy to give away a free pair of boots to a complete stranger every two weeks!! :)
So no need to contact me explaining why you or someone else "deserves" a pair more than others and likewise there is no need to do this in the Facebook post comments, as this will not increase the chances even slightly! And just to give you an example, even those rare and silly comments saying something like "your boots suck and this giveaway is a scam" get an equal entry point in the giveaway. ;)
2) There really are no strings attached. You will not be asked to do anything if you win other than to provide your colour/type preference and size. Your chosen boots will be delivered to your doorstep a.s.a.p. They will usually be shipped in the next couple of days (subject to availability of your chosen colour).
3) Since I’m always low on stock, the winner will only be able to select from the items that are currently listed as available on the website. Luckily, I always have quite a few colors to choose from :)
4) And yes the postage will be covered by me, no matter where you live! :) It would really be unfair for the winner to be unexpectedly smacked with a delivery bill. These costs vary and could run up to $50 depending on the destination, so I decided that if I were to really make the winner super happy I would need to cover this expense. :)
5) Since I consistently have to prove to people that I am indeed running a completely legit giveaway, I do ask the winners to use their discretion and send me a photo or two of them wearing the boots of their choice. This is in no way mandatory, but honestly, to me this is really helpful, because it works as clear proof to other participants that this giveaway is not a somehow made up thing. I fully understand, however, that some people may not like the idea of showing off their boots to the public and I respect that.
6) Also, I’ve noticed that some companies that run giveaways trick people by giving the winner something like 24 hours to collect their prize before a re-roll. Well, I will not under any circumstances do anything of this kind. The person who won the boots will be the one to get them and I will use all means possible to notify the winner in due course.
7) At times, it may take us a bit longer to count everyone up. This of course depends on the number of participants and general workload. I do my best, however, to prioritize this process as much as I can. Also, sometimes I realize that there are simply no more new entrants and that's when I decide to end the giveaway a bit earlier.
8) Please do not write to me asking who won such and such giveaway. All the announcements are there in my Facebook timeline. You can't miss it, just have to skim read through the posts on my page. I also try to update my news section regularly, though there is always some delay.
9) Here is how we pick the winner: First of all I copy/paste all the participants from my Facebook page into one spreadsheet, then we assign numbers from one to a couple of thousands, depending on the number of participants. Whenever additional entries are available on my website through Rafflecopter, they are always copied into the same spreadsheet. I then go online and use a random number generator to get that winning number. And that's pretty much it, but trust me it sounds a lot easier than it actually is! :) I do not use Rafflecopter to pick the winner and instead use the above mentioned old school method for two reasons: a) I can't merge the Facebook entries with Rafflecopter entries unless I export both into a separate file. b) About 20% of all Rafflecopter entries are invalid, so we have to painstakingly sift through them manually before adding them to the draw.
