This will hopefully raise revenue to the site but also give members especially some of those who don’t have very large budgets to get some quality gift cards to some great websites or even big box stores or even give away tools.
The system would only allow a single user to spend only a certain amount of money per raffle. $1 gets ou 1 ticket $5 gets you 6 and $10 gets you 12 tickets. I think $10 per user would be appropriate per raffle. This eliminating some users from spending $50 and having like 20% of the tickets in the pool. The raffle could have a permanent button you can click to take you right to the raffle.
Ammounts could range from $100 to LN or even a $500 gift card to whatever store or online marketplace the site admins deem good or even a new scroll saw or other piece of machinery or hand tool.
I think this could bring in some solid revenue for the site but also give members the chance to win some awesome gift cards/equipment.
This is just an idea but I am sure it can be expanded upon to where if the site introduce paid memberships hen every paid member gets an automatic 1 raffle ticket in every raffle.
Also this isn’t a lottery where if no one gets the winning # then it rolls on but instead there is an absolute winner for each raffle. Maybe leave the raffle period open for 1-2 weeks or longer depending on the size of the prize.
Hopefully the members of this site like this idea and I hope the admins do too!
