I have a gaming site and am getting a brand new system for free and am considering giving it away if it could help bring in the visitors, but don't know what would be the most effective.
I plan on doing some type of contest when I relaunch, but dont know if I should do 1 big item and 1 small item contest, or 3-4 small items in exchange
Also, Im not sure whats the best way to do it without being burned and giving it away with no benefits to the site.
I plan to launch a forum and considered that but worried what if everyone is lazy and doesn't want to post, resulting in a pathetic 5-10 people going at it over 10-20 posts.
I also considered some of referral, but then who's going to want to recommend it to someone else when their odds of winning decrease with another's entry. Also, what if no body refers anyone and again theres only 5-10 people going at it. Very tough decision.
So, what's the better ideal 3-4 small items (~$50 value)or 1 big ($150) and 1 small ($50)?
Also, what would be the most beneficial way to do so to attract (and hopefully keep) new visitors to the site.
