The noob is doing a little entrecard experiment. I did an entrecard challenge not so long ago. I don’t have the time to drop cards like a lunatic, but i do want to continually get traffic from entrecard. So what’s a noob to do? The noob will buy entrecard credits from you. That’s right, i will buy your entrecard credits.
I’ve been doing a little researching and i found that the value of entrecard credits are around 5 dollars for every 1000 credits. I think that’s a little under the buy it now price over at ebay. (buy it now price for 1000 entrecredits is $6.50)
As long as entrecard’s server doesn’t crash, i think it’s a site with real potential. If they could get the load time up a bit, i think the site is great for traffic. So i’ve decided that i want to buy some credits and use it to mass advertise my entrecard. This will get me back on the most popular list and hopefully i can stay there. That in turn will get me a higher daily rate. Basically, i’m taking my advertising budget and instead of using it on private ads, i’m purchasing entrecard ads. In my experience, entrecard ads are way better then buying private ads on a small or medium blog. I’ve received very few clicks from private ads i placed on small blogs. I guess that’s why it’s hard for newbie bloggers to sell any private ad space. Cause it’s a waste of money.
Why do we buy ads? You place an ad to get traffic to your site right.? Regular 125×125 ads won’t get many clicks. But an entrecard ad will. That’s because there are a lot of entrecard maniacs that chain drop. The visits from entrecard aren’t quality hits but they are hits. That’s important. It will get your alexa up. It’ll get your daily uniques up. Increase in traffic can help you sell private ads. See where i’m going with this?
In my experiment, i will see how far i can get up on the most popular list without doing any card dropping. Entrecard ad rates are calculated by the number of drops you receive on your blog. I think they take the average of 5 days worth of drops on your blog and time it by 2. So all i need to do is get people to my blog and drop their card. I think placing entrecard ads on popular blogs will do it. No need to spend a lot of time dropping cards. I’ve already bought around 5000 entrecredits on ebay but i’m looking for more. If you have some entrecard credits you want to sell, let me know in my comments below. I will buy 1000 entrecredits for 5 dollars.
