    Hello, this is really helpful, thank you. If you are running a giveaway in partnership with another Instagram account, how does that work when you come to randomly select a winner? Do we both post the exact same post on each of our profiles?

      Yes, I would publish the same post (make it clear people can enter once on each account).
      Then use for both links, and look at the entry lists alongside each other. Add the total entries together, use to choose a number from those, and find it on the list (eg. 56 entries on post 1, 44 on post 2 – gives you a number between 1 and 100 = 89. Entry 89 is comment number 33 on the second post. Does that make sense?

    Hi!! Thank you for breaking this down! It was very helpful! I did have a question however – why did you use when there was a randomize function on getcombot? I see you’re able to increase the number range and randomize your selection… so why use the other site?

    • Di says:

      You can’t increase the range on GetComBot beyond the number of comments on the post (you can type a bigger number in the box, but it will ignore it!), so in order to include the regrams and story mentions (which have to be tracked manually) I needed to use to choose from a larger number range.
