Does anyone have experience with RafflePress, particularly with YouTube? I'm curious if it meets YouTube's policies by having someone subscribe while joining a giveaway?

Any experience or thoughts would be awesome! :)

I am curious. What is RafflePress?

Here you go: https://rafflepress.com/

Here's where I'm at, this moment:

I have a YouTube channel with over 100k views annually and over 10k watch hours...but only 350 subscribers. I also earn over $20k/year from this channel - half from affiliate and half from landing page follow through for services.

I can't seem, however, to increase my YouTube subscribers more than 1x day, even though I've had more than 10k views just this month, strong calls to action, and good watch times and conversion rates.

This is because my channel is extremely targeted - to those seeking a very particular luxury vacation and honeymooners. They come to my channel for a very specific thing and then are unlikely to ever return - something I'm very ok with because of the money I make from these people.

I'd also rather not dilute my channel by posting more "subscribe-able" content.

Why do I want more subscribers?

I passed the 5k watch hour requirements for the YouTube partner program a good while back, but I'm struggling to climb to the required 1k subscriber mark. While I have no desire to activate adsense and channel monetization through YouTube directly, I reaaalllllyy want the feature to put custom links IN my videos - something I think will escalate my earnings drastically from my videos.

As such, I've found RafflePress and it seems if I was to do a competition, I could ask people to like my Facebook page and subscribe to my YouTube channel as part of gaining more entry points.

I'd personally pay hundreds, maybe thousands, get get to that 1k subscriber mark, but don't want to violate YouTube policies by "buying subscribers." I'd rather run an organic competition through a landing page plugin that leads to subscribers, etc.

Therefore, I'm considering RafflePress, but would really like to find something more about this online before jumping in too deep haha! :)
