Entrecard New Features, New Ebook And Contests

EntrecardLots of things are changing at Entrecard besides their new home page design. One of the changes they recently made that’s really the most significant since Entrecard’s inception is that you can now add multiple blogs to your account up to as many as you want. For those that don’t know, Entrecard is a blog widget advertising system.

You can add other blogs to your Entrecard account in one of two ways. You can either just simply add a new blog to your main Entrecard account or you can link accounts together. Many people have added Entrecard to their multiple blogs by creating individual accounts, so if you now have 3 or 4 accounts, you can merge them all together which will make keeping track of multiple email addresses and passwords a thing of the past. This is a very good move on Entrecard’s part.

And to encourage you to add additional blogs to your account, Entrecard is having a drawing for 15,000 credits in each of 5 different levels of adding multiple blogs to your account. If you add anywhere from 2 to 25 blogs you will get a chance to win one of 5 drawings for those 15,000 credits. That many credits can get you a bunch of advertising and will bring a decent amount of traffic to your blog.

Entrecard has also come out with an ebook as well and I know you’re probably thinking, what do we need an Entrecard ebook for, all we need to do is click, drop and buy advertising, how difficult is that? I thought the same thing, but found out the ebook does have a lot of good info in it. One thing I learned was that clicking on the Entrecard logo on the Entrecard widget on someones blog will take you to their profile. I’ve been wondering how I could quickly advertise on someone’s blog I like, without having to search Entrecard to find them. Here’s your answer.

I still wish Entrecard ads would run for 48 hours instead of 24 because I think it would be much more economical for the time spent on finding good advertising, but I am pretty impressed with the amount of features they keep adding to the service. Unlike many other blog widget deals, the constant development and tweaking of Entrecard is a big plus.

Super Secret Project Revealed – I Won A Macbook Air

I won a Macbook AirI’ve been teasing everyone for about a month now as to the super secret project I’ve been working on and the results are finally in. What is it? What’s the big deal?

I’m surprised no one figured it out because I’ve blogged about it 6 times here at Affiliate Confession. I just received notice that I was one of the winners in the Webmaster Talk forums contest where 5 fortunate contestants received a prize package valued at $5,000 and one of the prizes in that pack was a brand new Macbook Air!

What made this contest different than many other contests run on the web was that although you received points for performing certain actions, instead of receiving more chances or entries as you earned points, your points were cumulative and the top 5 people with the most points were to be the winners. Contestants could earn anywhere from 2 to 200 points for various actions ranging from posting to the forums, writing articles and various things in between. My strategy was to maximize the chances of winning by writing a ton of articles and I managed to amass a total of 8,548 points bringing me in at the number 5 slot, only 36 points in front of the number 6 slot. The contest ran for 33 days so there was plenty of time to earn all the points you wanted by just working at it.

I’ll write another post later in the week detailing more of my strategy for winning the contest and what I did to almost assure a place in the top 5 winners. So the secret is out, that’s what I’ve been working on so diligently for the last month. However, now it’s time to get back into the swing of things again and get some real work done. More on the contest later.
