How To Join A Loop Giveaway On Instagram

How To Join A Loop Giveaway On Instagram by social media influencer Life By LeeChances are if you follow bloggers you have entered a loop giveaway on Instagram. Maybe you love them, maybe you hate them, but they are a sure fire way to grow your Instagram following & make new blogger friends while doing so. I started joining loop giveaway on Instagram a few months ago. I had entered a few and even won a couple and was intrigued. I didn’t really want to go into the hassle of hosting one myself right away because I know how much work it can be. If you want to join a loop giveaway on Instagram, but don’t want to host your own here are a few tips to get you looped!

1. See a successful loop giveaway on one of your favorite blogger’s feeds? Take a snapshot of the giveaway image and direct message the blogger. All you have to do is kindly ask who the host of the giveaway was. You can say something like: “Hey! This is a great giveaway! Do you mind sharing with me who the host was? I’m looking to get into some loop giveaways and would love to be connected! Once you receive the host’s contact information reach out via Instagram or email and let them know you’re interested in participating in their next loop giveaway.

2. Join a blogging group on Facebook. Blogging groups are a great way to network with other bloggers, find new blogging friends, and collaborate! Some bloggers will post directly in the group when they are hosting a loop giveaway on Instagram and you can just comment saying you want to join in!

3. Send a direct message to a group of Instagrammers who you have noticed are involved in loop giveaways. This increases your chances of getting a response! Just say something like: “Hey! I’ve noticed that you participate in loop giveaways from time to time! Do you mind sharing the host’s contact information that you work with the most?”

Now that I’ve taught you how to successfully stalk people down on Instagram it’s off to the races. Grab your phone and get to work!

    Interesting info, thank you for sharing. Just this week, I reached out to a loop giveaway group and am participating in my first IG loop giveaway next month. I’m a little nervous as I have never done this before, but I have to gain experience somehow. 🙂

    Great tips! I love doing loops – such a great way to grow readership, especially if you can find one with other similar bloggers/shops (ie mommy, fashion, etc). I’m actually planning one right now!

      Have you already done your giveaway?

        Hi Carmen- I haven’t ran my own recently. I’ve just been joining in on them! Much easier and less stressful for me 🙂

      I would love to get in on one if you are still hosting them! 🙂

    Thanks for posting this, I thought one tip was particularly helpful- reaching out to Facebook groups. I’ve participated in a few loop giveaways but I find that linking with the same people consistently isn’t that successful because after a while you tend to have the same group of followers. Do you have any recommendations for blogger Facebook groups? That’s a relatively unexplored area for me. You can email me at or contact me however works best for you.

    Thank you so much!

      Hey Shian- Thanks for your comment! As far as blogger groups go on Facebook I’ve just asked other bloggers if they belong to one and came across an awesome one. It’s called Grow Your Blog.

    I am just launching my online business and I’m curious as to if there’s a minimum of followers you need to join a loop giveaway? I’m hesitant to reach out and give away because I have very little followers on Instagram,should I reach out anyway?

    • on August 2, 2015 at 11:00 am

      Yes- usually hosts require a minimum amount of followers, but some may not. You could try joining loops where the Instagrammers have a similar number of followers?

    Thanks so much for this info! I’m fairly new to Insta and just realized I had DM’s waiting to be approved and missed a DM about joining a giveaway loop! My life story… a “day late and a dollar short”?? I responded to the DM anyway even tho it’s been months since it was sent and I’m hoping they consider me again! I found you via a Google search on this topic btw and I’m glad I did! About to go and follow you now and hope you can give me info on hosts I can contact to be included sometime! Maybe you?!?? Have a blessed day!

    This is great info! So we are a fairly small ig account (my sister and I have a brand of DIY decor products we sell wholesale to retailers) but we can make up for our small numbers with big $$ products, do you think anyone would want to do a loop with us if we sponsored the prize? Or will we have to pay someone to do a giveaway?

    This is a really good blog, great information, I had sended a message to someone who hosted a giveaway loop yesterday really late but she didn’t respond yet. We’ll see. But i did notice that these people were having a lot of flollowers. I Hope I get an answer. Thanks for this post

    Thanks for sharing this! I was lost on how loop giveaways worked and the information you provided really cleared up things for me. I’m going to get to work on the subject now:)
