Giveaway a flop

OK so just checked and despite publishing as much as I can think how to do I have the grand total of 5 entries from 3 people for my giveaway

So what else can I do?
so far I have:
* linked up my facebook, twitter and blog
* signed up to do guest posts whenever i see the opportunity
* i try and do at least 5 linky parties a week
* I've contacted other bloggers and invited them to guest post but only one replied
* I post a link back to my blog in my signature on any comments i make

  2. I think that sometimes its hard to get people to participate.. I wanted to get 20 people for my craft swap and only got 5 participants... don't lose heart.. you have followers who are listening! Sometimes it just takes time.. and patience is really hard! Keep doing what you're doing.. cause you're awesome!

  4. Hi Leigh:

    I feel your pain. I've tried to do giveaways with little to no response and then have seen others who have great success. I don't really have a clue what makes it work...I too have done all the things you've done.

    Good luck!!

  5. One tip i have is to edit your post ( or what ever the word is)
    so that the giveaway post is always at the top of the page so when people visit this is the first thing they see. hth katie
