For this tutorial we will be using the free version of RafflePress which can be found here:

With the plugin installed and activated to under RafflePress, Add New, name the giveaway and select the type of giveaway you want to start with. There are a few different pre-built options for templates to get you started.

You’ll be able to customize the title, description, and start date on the screen you are brought to and you have full control over these fields. The Pro version even allows you to select the time zone for the giveaway. With that setup, add the methods of entry you would like your users to use such as Facebook Page visits, follows on Twitter, as well as other social channels.

To prevent spamming your giveaway, RafflePress has the option to limit the number of signups per IP address as well as the option for requiring the user to confirm their email to be included as an entrant. The plugin also includes a rules generator to give you some base rules that you can edit to suit your needs.

With all of that setup, you can create a page for the giveaway and add the RafflePress block to embed RafflePress at which point you can select which of your giveaways are embedded on the page.
