How to get popular within EntreCard!

EntreCardThe question of getting and being popular in EntreCard will be important for many new or already established members. Several factors have to be considered which i will explain in this short guide.

What does Popularity mean and how is it calculated?
  1. Popularity means that you gained a lot of members of EntreCard who drop their cards on your blog widget.
  2. The popularity number is always calculated from the card drops within the last FIVE days. this means e.g. for this blog i have a number of around 700 at the moment. On average 140 person dropped their card/visited the blog each day!
How to increase your popularity?

There are five possibilities to increase your popularity:
  1. Drop as much cards as possible, at best the maximum of 300 cards! Try to drop on members which will drop back, these are most likely the members with many points (sometimes they can't drop back anymore because they reached already the 300 drops before you dropped on them :( )

  2. Advertise on blogs with high popularity points (it makes a difference if you advertise on a blog with 700 points or on a blog with over 2.000 points like the one from The Admaster) even it costs you up to 4.096 ECs.
    But over 400 members who drop their card on that day and see your ad, a big part of them get curious what's behind this advertisement!

  3. Consider to make a paid advertisement. It's relatively cheap to place this ad and it will be seen on a lot of blogs, chances are high that someone will click on your ad because it shows up nearly everywhere for the next one, two or three days (Entrecard offer Ads per 1.000 Page impressions for 0.60 $ shown on "all blogs" or for 1.20 $ shown only in one category -> Niche).

  4. Try to involve yourself in the EntreCard forum and contribute to the community in the Market, sell services or/and buy from the other members to increase your visibility.

  5. Use an attractive image which makes other members curious so that they click on it.

Advantages of being popular in Entrecard

  1. You get a greater visibility to other members within Entrecard when you reach the TOP 15 members of your category (in my case "Mixed Bag"). This will usually be displayed at first unless you change the setting in the Campaigns to more rows.

  2. If you can reach the overall TOP 15 members, your visibility is the greatest because this will be shown everytime when somebody clicks on the Popular-Tab!

  3. The Advertising price on your widget will rise from the previous price faster and faster. You will get a big portion each day for more advertisement on high popularity blogs or for a big cashout -> Up to 50% of the Advertising price will be booked in your account each day!
