Fido's Freebie Friday Looks for Feedback

by Carrie Boyko, CEB
Hello shoppers:  Thanks for stopping by as we open for a new week's giveaway event. I'd like to ask your help with feedback for our blogger participants and myself. Anything you'd like to share? We'd love to hear about your favorite entry methods, the best product categories, and even what day you prefer to visit. Anything you'd like to toss us in the comment section will be helpful to us in making our giveaways more appealing for you. Thanks!

Dear Bloggers:  I know Doggies and Stuff joins me in thanking you for linking up here each week. We'd like to redouble our efforts to let you know that multiple entries ARE acceptable, as long as they involve a pet-themed prize. So don't hold back; shoot for the moon!

Pet Product Review Tip #6:

Another option you'll need to weigh is whether to compare prices to comparable items. While there are products that always sell for a set retail prize, some retailers and discounters offer deals, sales, coupons and other ways to save. Keep in mind this comparison will come under close scrutiny and may provoke comments that could be difficult to moderate. Often there are too many answers to a single issue. In addition, prices will vary on many products from region to region, making your information only useful in a specific area. Keep all this in mind when making this decision whether to share pricing information. I'd love to hear your thoughts or concerns. Feel to get in touch via my contact form in the menu bar. 

Our Ridiculously Easy Rules: 

Pet blogs from around the Internet may link up all their active giveaways on this post each week. We welcome all your giveaway events here. The rules are simple:

  • Fido's Freebie Friday Blog Hop is open to posts about giveaways, contests, drawings, prizes, and freebies for pet products or services only, including pet-related or pet-themed items for owners. Feel free to link up multiple items if you have more than one giveaway going on.
  • One additional detail to note: Please make it easy on our shoppers by linking to your specific giveaway post url, so our readers will easily find your giveaway. 
  • Please include our badge in your post so your readers will understand what's happening. You'll find the code in my sidebar in a box beneath the image and also at our HELP PAGE, where there is a ton of other useful information for bloggers doing giveaways and reviews. You may also link to this post in your Fido's Freebie Friday blog post and invite your readers to tell us that you sent them. Your hosts are All Things Dog Blog and Doggies and Stuff. 
Welcome and happy shopping!

I love Fido's Freebie Friday, and have found some really great blogs that I continue to actively follow. I used to visit towards the end of the weekend, but now I drop by more often.

As far as product categories go, if it's pet related, I'm there! I especially enjoy being introduced to new products. My cats may be getting jealous, though, so I'd love to see more cat bloggers join in on the fun!

I'm also OK with most entry methods, but Rafflecopter is my favorite because it keeps track of entries and is much faster than typing comments.

Oh, it would be nice to see the contest "end date" on each link title.

I agree with Michelle. I've found some great blogs here, too, and visit often. I like raffle copter, but am not an active tweeter (though I have an account), so rarely enter that way.

All pet related giveaways are great...think it would be wonderful if classes and groomings were offered as prizes sometimes, too.

i really love Fido's Freebie Friday ! Not only did i found some pretty cool Blogs this way , i also hear about new products,food , toys etc. and get a chance to win something for my boys :)
i like the Rafflecopter but sometimes i have a hard time to get it to load . I do not like when i have to follow 25 other blogs on twitter and FB to get the entries unless everybody chipped in for a GP .
i also think there should be an end date posted because i clicked on some links and it showed the contest was already over . And if a Contest is over their link should be removed.
just my 2 cents ;)
