I was posting announcements about my grand opening of my Shoppes site to Stumble Upon Exchange the other day, and came across a really great blog singing the praises of Entrecard. Wow, if you want exposure for your blog, Entrecard is the next best thing to sliced bread…or in my case, preferably, chocolate!
It’s a virtual “drop your business card,” or in this case, “ebiz card” onto someone’s blog and introduce yourself! It also offers the opportunity to purchase 125 x 125 banner “advertisements” or ‘adverts’ for 24 hours via credits…no cash is exchanged. If accepted by the blogger, your advertisement stays on the front page for 24 hours!
Here’s more information, directly from Entrecard’s site:
“What is an Entrecard?
Entrecard is your business card 2.0. It’s a 125×125 image which represents you and your blog. Its part advertisement, part business card.
Entrecard is the first and only free exchange network for 125×125 ads. Through this revolutionary platform, you can advertise your own 125×125 Entrecard on any blog in the network, for free, for a number of days. You pay for this advertising with Entrecard Credits, that you earn for free by networking … Entrecards are exchanged via a widget that you place on your blog. Other members with an Entrecard can leave their card for you by dropping it in your widget, and you can leave your card for others by dropping it in their widget.”
If you look at the top left corner of my blog, under the American Flag, you’ll see I’ve posted “Drop your Entrecard Here”. A member who’s searched through the various categories offered, finds my blog, reads it, can comment on it, and “drop” their card by clicking the “drop” link. You can use one of their images as your banner if you don’t have one, or upload your own. How cool is that?
Run, don’t think about it…if you blog ~ it’s like a 24-hour link exchange for your WAHM biz. Sign up! It’s FREE!
Be sure to drop me a line or comment to let me know that you’ve signed up so I can “drop-in” on you & say ‘hello’!
