Step 5. When all the blogs priced at 4ec and under appear, advertise on any one of them by clicking the “Advertise” button, located just under each card. You may want to check out the site you are advertising on first, however, to see what kind of site your ad is running on.
Earn Entrecard points/Entrecard Credits...
You just added the widget to your blog, earned some EC, and bought some ads. As you accumulate more credits, you can purchase advertising on more expensive blogs. You don’t need to drop like crazy to earn credits either. You earn credits when others drop on you, when others buy your ad space, or if you sell products or services in our virtual marketplace.
You might be thinking that how long your ads will run for?
Every ad that you purchase will run for a full 24 hours, and will not be in rotation with any other ad. In other words, when you buy an ad, your ad is up on that blog for a full day.
You may think that, Why do different blogs have different prices?
Every time someone purchases an advertisement on a given blog, the cost goes up for the blog they bought the ad on. Every time a day goes by without someone purchasing an ad on that given site, the price goes down.
And so, in this fashion, everyone’s prices are based on demand. Expect to see higher prices for blogs with higher Alexa Rank, Google Page rank, Technorati Authority, and so on. Also expect to see higher prices to advertise on blogs where the Entrecard widget is at the top of the blog. Everyone has different tools they use to analyze a blog’s advertising value, and everyone has a different amount they’re willing to pay to advertise on a blog. You may have your own ways to judge how valuable advertising is. When in doubt, just ask in the forums -chances are someone has advertised on that blog before and will tell you how it did.
Now you can increase your blog traffic very easily and legally. It's very easy to market your blog or to increase visitors on your blog with Entrecard. Most important its free to join & use. To join Entrecard visit here.
