For the past few months, I’ve been letting my Entrecard credits build up. Currently, I have 18,817 EC credits sitting in my account. I’ve decided to give away 10,000 credits to a lucky blogger so he or she can try out the service.
Entering the contest is extremely simple. Just send a trackback by making a blog post about this contest on your blog. If the trackback doesn’t work, then leave the URL to your blog post in the comment. At the end of this month, I’ll draw a name from all the entries received and transfer 10,000 Entrecard credits into that person’s account.
New Entrecard Pricing Model
The 10,000 credits will come in handy since Entrecard introduced a new demand based pricing model. Blogs that are in high demand has seen their prices skyrocket. This blog now cost over 1,000 credits to advertise on.
The new price model simply doubles a blog’s price every time someone purchases an ad, and halves it every time an ad completes its run. So if you cost 500, someone could buy an ad from you but they’d have to pay 1000. The next person would have to pay 2000. And so on. But then if two days went by and no one bought an ad from you, you’re price will halve each day. I guess if no one bought ads from me, my price will eventually fall to zero. Then again, the chance of that happening is zero.
Entrecard is one of the best way for new blogs to get targeted traffic. It’s the only way you can get a 125×125 ad on this blog and Problogger.net without paying cash for it. Right now, an Entrecard ad on Problogger cost 4,096 credits and if someone buys it, the new price will be 8,192 credits. That’s a lot of credits but you’ll be able to afford it if you win the 10,000 Entrecard credits. Good luck!
