How to Maximize the Power of Entrecard Dropping

I must admit, I am now taking dropping very very seriously as my Drop rank describes me. On the left is the current statistics of this blog. Actually, I am using a lot of strategies before but they do not seem to work out. Fortunately, my good friend Article Specialist unselfishly shared some of his techniques to me. This is the reason why this blog is improving in terms of visitors and quality traffic. And because of this, I would like to share them with you.

1.0 Prioritize your inbox. They are the ones who drop their cards to you. You can find the recent ones in the upper portion of your dashboard. If you will like to see the older ones, just click the Drops Inbox and it will lead you to them. By doing this, they will be glad because you are returning the favor. This is also known today as Recipro-Drops. Before you know it, they may be your regular visitors. They may not have the same category as yours but who knows, they may be interested in your posts later. It worked for me.

2.0 Drop at the same category. This is very useful because if you become regular droppers for each other, you will be creating a good harmony with them. Hence, you will learn from them and vice versa. This is simply because you have common interest of topics. I must say that some of my readers today came from the drops by using this strategy. I am also visiting them regularly and even subscribe to some that I found useful to me. However, I strongly suggest that you make your blog speedy and position your card well.

3.0 Advertise wisely. Advertising on a blog that has the higher price does not follow that your ads will do well. If the blog has low volume of followers, your ads may not sell. So you must view the blog first. Otherwise, you will just be another victim of junk traffic. Apparently, there are new members who are already doing well before they joined Entrecard. In addition, you may also check the Unseen ones in which you can find in the campaign section. But of course, it is better if you place your ads on blogs that is stable and in the same category. View and analyze your statistics regularly.

4.0 Socialize with others. This is the main reason why Entrecard was made, for us to read each other’s blogs. Although I am recently dropping my card to about 250 blogs a day, it is taking me long hours just to finish because I read blogs. I even provide valuable comments and recommendations if they are worth for. I also meet cool bloggers who are patiently taking their time to answer my questions. But of course, I also drop and run if the blog content is not valuable for me. That is why content is the really the king.

5.0 Maximize your credits. There are other ways to use your Entrecard points to increase traffic other than placing ads Sponsoring a contest is one of them. They have also this shop where you can buy something out of your points. You can also help other bloggers. I remember one occasion that I contributed 300ec to a fellow blogger who lost her husband.

In addition, I am now running a contest in which the prize is 2,000+ Entrecard points and each entry will receive 100ec instantly. I just hope this could help me more as well to others especially to new members.

If you want to join, please read the whole details in this post.

Although some may say that Entrecard is not helping them, I believe that just like any other networking site, you just need to learn the techniques that will work for you. So for those of you who are not a member yet, I am inviting you to join and give it a try. But be sure you know the right approach and how to maximize it.

"Apparently, I am now running a contest in which the prize is 2,000+ Entrecard points and each entry will receive 100ec instantly."

I think you want to change the word "apparently" as it makes it sound like you're not really sure that you're running this contest, it just looks like it ;)

Great tips about EC btw.

You should put 'Read the content before dropping' as the 1st priority. Otherwise you won't get quality traffic.

Thanks for the advice on how to use EC. I just joined a couple of days ago so am still figuring out the best way to use the advertising.

What? You gave 300 ec to somebody because she lost her husband? I don't get the point but you are wonderful for doing that.

I actually don't know why some bloggers are giving me some ec, but one time this girl says on her message that she loves me or my blog, that I don't know, I am very thankful though.

Or maybe I still don't know the "business" running on Entrecards but what I know is I am enjoying a lot.

This is addictive lol! If I reached 50 drops I am telling myself "okay another drops more until I get 75" but then I reached 100 and I still want to drop more lol!

I can't drop more than 200, droppers/bloggers helping me to get more than that so I am very thankful to them.

I love to be in Entrecard because I hit good readings and this is one of those :)

Hi Manilenya,

Actually, there are other blogger who gave more than 1,000ec to that fellow blogger.

Yes, dropping is addictive but you must make the most of it. That is why I thought of making this post.

I will try to make posts about Entrecard and how it is helping me.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you can join my contest.

lol! I didn't realize that this is your blog ...again I'm sorry.

I think I am getting Alzheimer's at a very young age :)

You're post made me dropped a comment, that is very interesting. I don't want post that keeps on telling how to get money on blogging. Tips are okay specially when they are helpful but they shouldn't fill their post the word money all throughout right?

thanks for another recommendation :)

You rock!

No problem. I just visited your blog and I realized that you are still very young...at heart, lol!

Well, if you notice there are multiple blogs about money-making at Entrecard and almost all of them has the content, I mean ideas.

I am blogging also for money, but I am trying to be patient and smart enough. I believe that money will flow later if your contents are helpful and true.

Thanks for dropping by again.
