Experiment – Entrecard or $2 Banner Ads on Super Blogging? Grab Yours Now!
May 5, 2008
I’ve been using Entrecard for many months now and written a few posts on it as well (see: Why I’m Using Entrecard and Entrecard: Is It Worth It?). I’m an Entrecard fan – while it doesn’t bring me loads of quality traffic, it has helped me find new blogs and in return increased the exposure of my own blog and put it in front of more eyes. However, I figured it’s time to switch things up a bit and try a little experiment. This doesn’t mean that Entrecard is gone from this blog permanently, but I’m going to put something else in its place for the time being – and that would be one more 125×125 ad. There’s a secret though: it costs just $2!
You may have noticed that 125×125 ads on Super Blogging are $25 a month, which is still a reasonable price – but why on earth would I sell one for $2? Fact 1: This ad is going to be below the fold, but still visible to anyone who reads the content. Fact 2: It’s $2 per week, which in turn equals out to be less than 0.3 cents a day. Fact 3: Hundreds of people have clicked on that Entrecard widget, and I figured it’s now time to give those visitors to you – my readers.
This is merely but an experiment, and after I retire it I have others in mind. But this is definitely something to take advantage of! $2 is virtually nothing when it comes to advertising, so you’ve got everything to gain. Here are the rules: a), You can only order one week at a time. I don’t want one person taking over this deal, and I’m not sure how long the experiment will last. b), There will be a waiting list, for week one, week two, week three, and so on. Even if the spot is already taken, you can go ahead and order and be placed on the immediate waiting list for your 125×125 ad to be shown. Entrecard users and Super Blogging visitors alike can take advantage of this one!
So, in effect of this experiment, the Entrecard widget has been temporarily removed and replaced with a 125×125 ad spot that can be bought out for a minuscule price of $2 a week. Interested in buying? Go ahead and comment or email me letting me know that you’re taking part, and the details to your banner (URL and where it links to). Remember, this deal isn’t going to last forever and I DO NOT save spots for anyone, so if you want this, you’ve got to hurry and grab it now! Enjoy, and thanks for taking part in the experiment (which I will explain the reasons for and give all the details on once it’s over).
