The Giveaway Directory is designed to be the easiest way to promote your giveaways, sweepstakes and contests. With just a single click your Sweepstakes or Giveaway can be added to the Giveaway Network and promoted across multiple websites and directories. If you are interested in attracting additional traffic you may want to consider submitting your giveaway to additional directories. We’ve rounded up a few of the bigger ones here for your convenience.
Sweepstakes & giveaway directories
Giveaways Directory by PromoSimple
The Giveaways Directory allows anyone using the PromoSimple platform to opt in to a network which promotes giveaways for free within this directory and widgets across the web. It’s free to use and takes only 1 click to add your promotion.
Giveaways & Sweepstakes
If you have a larger sweepstakes prize this directory is the place to post your listing. Giveaways & Sweepstakes manually posts most of their listings by scouring the web for the biggest prizes. For $25 you can have your promotion listed in the directory and included in their email newsletter that reaches over 15,000 subscribers. While not the cheapest option for marketing your sweeps, the smaller number of listings and huge audience makes it a worthwhile investment for a larger promotion.
Directory contains 1800+ listings for sweepstakes. All giveaways are reviewed, but keep in mind that those with prizes of less than $50 may not be published. You must also provide a reciprocal link back to Big Sweeps in order to submit your giveaway for free. Otherwise, you’ll need to pay a $40 fee to list your sweep.
Blog Giveaway Directory
It’s free to submit your giveaway to Blog Giveaway Directory as long as you provide a reciprocal link back to them on your blog. Free submissions are reviewed and usually posted within 3-4 business days. This directory also gives you the ability to preview your post, with an optional image of your giveaway prize, before you send it. Priority listings, which are posted 1 business day after submission and do not require you to add a reciprocal link on your blog, are available for $1.99.
Listing your giveaway is free on ContestHound in exchange for a reciprocal link. They are happy to post your giveaway as long as it is free to enter, there is a full set of rules that goes along with it, and your prize has a minimum value of $25. ContestHound will feature your giveaway on their homepage on the day it goes live to their site, and you’ll even notice a small “Ending” icon next to your giveaway as the end date draws nearer.
A directory with 10,000+ listings that features a simple design and easy form for submitting your giveaways. Adding your giveaway to this directory only takes 2 minutes total.

You can email them your giveaway for free, but your inclusion on their site is not guaranteed.
