Step 3: Figure Out Your Timeline and Terms & Conditions
Now, that you’ve met the goal number, it’s time to initiate your giveaway! First things first, you need to figure out your terms and conditions. Instagram has their own set of terms and conditions surrounding giveaways/contests. You can find the official terms and conditions from Instagram here. Next, you need to figure out your own set of terms and conditions to weave into Instagram’s. With this, you’re thinking about all the rules you want giveaway entrants to follow. You are welcome to use our terms and conditions as a guide or take a look at another website that breaks down Instagram’s set of terms and conditions. We’ve included these in ours but it’s worth reading through to make sure you’re covered.
The next thing you’ll need to decide is dates/times: what day will your giveaway begin and what day and time will it end? For this, we chose to start our giveaway on a Thursday and end it on a Sunday at 11:59:59. Notice how we got VERY specific with the time that it ended? You need to do this to make things black and white; the last thing you want to do is have ANY grey area.
