Hey I am looking to make some money off CPA. I want to my my own giveaway/raffle site.

I have a few questions:

How would I go about this?
Scripts?
Costs?
Any tips to get it popular?
Where do I get the items Im offering to giveaway?

You would need to buy a domain and Curt's raffle script, the script is $20 a month I believe, to get your raffle site popular you would need traffic, and you should get some space for ads.

Is the script a must? Any alternatives?

Also do I need to buy all the prizes? For example I always see a VCC giveaway site popup everysecond, they must all get it from somewhere

You can buy other scripts that are out there, too. You don't have to use Curt's. If you have traffic that you can pull from somewhere else, you can use Curt's because his is relatively cheap in the short term. If you plan on doing shit advertising (like Youtube and here) then try using a different script and site setup. Everyone here knows what one of Curt's websites looks like. :p If you plan on advertising here, you'll have to have a site that's not only attractive, but worth the time spent. Don't aim for "another Amazon raffle site" because nobody will go to your site. Think outside of the box.

For prizes, you have to buy those. The saying "it takes money to make money" is true. For virtual prizes (like a VCC) you can find a method to getting them free or find a merchant here on TBN who sells them at .25 - .50 a piece. They're easy to obtain, though, and for that reason I don't suggest you go that route. Other virtual prizes (Amazon cards, Microsoft Points, etc.) can be obtained free by doing GPT sites and using sites like Swagbucks. Or, you can just pay for them out of pocket and set your entries to an amount that's, say, 25% more than what the item costs. That way you make your money back and then some.

Honestly, if you want to make a successful GPT/Raffle you need to spend time on the script features and design. Im currently in the middle of making a custom raffle script, its going to be very different from Curt's and will have many unique features.

Theres only 1 option when it comes to Raffle sites:

Over do the whole site!
