How to Set-up Giveaway Bot in Discord (2022) – Discord Tips

A giveaway is a kind of contest where you give something in return for leads or subscriptions with the help of the Discord giveaway bot and that is what I will explain in this article.

A giveaway bot in discord can help you to grow your discord server and gain viewers.

There are many bots available for the giveaway but today I will share the one that I am using and even used by many big discord servers.

Why Giveaway is important?___________________________________________

Giveaway is almost used by every social media influencer like by YouTubers and Discordians. Here you create a contest and give any product or service for free to the winner.

Though giving these products to your viewers is worth as in return you can make your discord server alive and can gain more and more subscribers and members.


How to setup Giveaway Bot in Discord

I will explain to you step by step how to set up the giveaway bot to your discord server and also how to schedule a giveaway.

Before proceeding make sure you have the text channel by the name Giveaway.

If not open your discord server and click on the + icon to create a text channel and name it Giveaway. You can also add emojis to this channel to make it attractive.

Once done, navigate to the giveaway website and click on Add to Discord.

Type #giveaway and hit enter to choose the channel giveaway.

Now this will ask you the duration of the giveaway so if you want to do it for 1 day then simply type 1 followed by d that is (1d) and for 12 hours type (12h).

So I will take 12 hours and will type 12h followed by the enter key.

How to Schedule or Plan a Giveaway

Of course, giveaways are beneficial for both the viewers and the host who plan to give something away in return for something like subscribers and members.

I am sharing a few tips which might help you to plan a proper giveaway

  1. Plan and decide the goal: – You must plan properly about your goal for the giveaway. For example, if you want 500 members in your discord server, you must set at least 3 days of duration and at least 5 winners.

         Giveaway duration and the winner should be according to the goal you have set.

  1. Trending Giveaway price: – Try to pick the winner prize which is really trending and related to your audience.

This will surely gain your viewer’s attention and engagement.

  1. Create a Proper Announcement result:- Do something new to announce the giveaway results to engage those members who didn’t participate.

This will increase the chance of the member’s participation in the next giveaway.



Finally, I would say you must create a giveaway at least every month with the help of a discord giveaway bot as this is already working for most of the influencers and Discordians.

I have shared this bot which is used by many of the big discord server owners and is really simple and effective.
