Entrecard: My First 125×125 Ad

See that little ad over there on the right? That’s my Entrecard ad. I just learned about it via the Moo Man, and I couldn’t resist signing up. It seems like a great way to advertise my new site.

What it is

An Entrecard ad isn’t a traditional ad. I’m not making any money off of it. On the other hand, if it works out well, I might get something even more valuable: traffic.

The way Entrecard works is simple: After signing up, you add the widget to your sidebar. From there, you ‘drop your card’ at other sites that use Entrecard, and that earns you credits. You also earn credits when people drop their cards at your site. Once you accumulate enough credits, you can ‘purchase’ advertising space on other blogs. Right now, it costs 2 credits to advertise on this site (because I haven’t done anything yet). It costs 50 to advertise on Shoemoney. The price for a site goes up when people drop their cards at your site.

Typical Ads

You can upload your own image or just fill in the blanks like mine. There are a variety of categories, so you should be able to find the right place to advertise regardless of the content of your site. I’m jumping on board with this idea for the same reason I signed up with Blogrush: I can’t get rich online, so free advertising is awesome.

    Entrecard is awesome. I’ve been getting 200 hits a a day from the ad campaigns I’ve launched, and that’s not even including all the traffic I’m getting from being listed on their site.

    This is like, the best blog widget ever
