Most Expensive EntreCard User

Related Stuff: Entrecard is internet business card. This system encourage people to bloghop. As a result, it boost up unique visit count of a site. This is especially useful for new bloggers who are trying to gain publicity in the world wide web.


3days ago, My Entrecard advertisement cost went up to 333ec points. Everything was so perfect. Wait day was at 3days, and advertising cost was at 333ec. I'm beginning to love the number 3 more than the number 4 now. I was gonna dedicate a blog post for this 333ec-3days peculiar event.
But something even better came up. By sheer luck and the new system by Entrecard, I'm now among the most expensive EC user.

Among 7000+ members in Entrecard, I am now one of the most expensive EC user to be advertised upon at 262,144EC points. My unique experience is being shared by 5 other EC users.
To advertise on my site, you need to drop fanatically 300drops everyday for 874days so that you have enough credits to advertise here in my blog. That is also equivalent to 2.4years worth of dropping cards. Wow!

Btw, I'm sure this is only gonna last for a day. So I thought, why not blog about it before it dies off?

If someone were to ask my thoughts on Entrecard, I'd say I prefer the old pricing system. Now that the new pricing system has been implemented, why not wait for a few more days and see how it goes from there onwards.

PS: Some may agree that my EC icon looks inferior compared to all the other big players in EntreCard. But I'm pretty proud that this inferior-looking icon managed to climb up the ranks within Entrecard. This is a prove that even bad brand names can climb up to be one of the most prestigious names in the world. [What do you think? Am I talking rubbish here?]

Fact:
1) EC = EntreCard
2) A new pricing system has been implemented in Entrecard. [More info here]
3) Entrecard drove up this blog's Alexa rank by alot. [Graph Attached below] Before I joined Entrecard, there wasn't even a blue line in that graph. Now I see an artistic wavy line happening.

rambler said...

Hey! Congrats!

I found that when I really hit the dropping hard and my advertising $ went up my advertisers went down...for me staying a little more in the middle seemed to work better.

Is your advertising decreasing now?

Very nice. I'm surprised that your blog is so popular, but your entrecard does have a certain appeal.

New System is bad. -_-

I prefer the old system, or a Project Wonderful highest bidder gets the Ad Box type system instead.

Aronil said...

[joshuaongys]
Yup yup. Its a system that encourage participants to bloghop

[phatelara]
Er... I'm not sure if this is a good thing either. High advertising cost = No potential advertiser

[SlowCatchUpKuan]
I dun think anyone can afford that kind of price. I can't even afford to place an ad on my own site.

[pikey]
None I would guess

3POINT8 said...

[rambler]
Ya. With the new system, I think having no advertising cost is the best as everyone will be checking the cheapest site to advertise upon.
Btw, my advertising is decreasing now.

[Cometh]
If you have the time, do check it out

[sksee]
Thanks for the linkback sksee! I've also lined to your site.

[Jillian]
Wow! I guess that is because you have a high quality content in your blog. I know of people in EC who value blogs with high quality content.

3POINT8 said...

[curryegg]
Haha. Ironic thing is that, I can't afford to advertise on my own site too

[NathanKP]
Thanks for the compliment Nathan.

[Deimos Tel'Arin]
Yup. I prefer the old system. I should really explore into ProjectWonderful. I heard lots of positive comment about it

[Aronil]
Woah! YOur advertising cost quite high also!
Its slowly coming back down now. you can place and advertisment on my widget in a few more days.

3POINT8 said...

[宝茹]
Me too. I don't like the recent change. But let's see how things go from here onwards.

[Susie]
Woah! Congrats.
Yea, I got me some reading to catch up too.

[usws]
