One would think that a good way of driving traffic to your site would be to have some type of give-away and prizes offered on your forum. The questing here is it will all depend on your prizes being given away and what worth it is to your current members and drawing new members. So what would be considered a good value to be and how to structure this prizes? I have had a few of these on various forums and was astounded to see that they were not that successful, the prizes ranging from around $50 US to $100 US. I could still understand if it did not bring in new members but to see that existing members that were able to enter did not even do this was confusing. The normal way I would do these raffles is make it so you needed at least 50 post to take a ticket in them. You were also able to take numerous tickets every so many days. So now my big question is are the prizes so worthless that members don't even want to go to the trouble of just clicking on the option to take at least one ticket?
