At the end of your article, attach a 5 or 6-line 'Resource Box'that includes your website URL and/or your email address.

They also gave people who had entered the Giveaway theopportunity to get additional entries and additional chances to winby telling a few of their friends on the "Thank You" page.
On the "Thank You" page, every giveaway entrant received thefollowing message: "Tell your friends about WZ.com, and get anadditional entry for each friend you email." In return for thefavor, they received an additional chance to win for every friendthey refer. This simple addition increased Tell-a-Friend results by96 times.
So how do you use this technique to leverage and increase yoursubscription rate, and "word of mouse" publicity? It's simple, just"Tell-A-Friend" or "Tell-A-Friend about everything"!
