What Do You Use Your EntreCard Credits For?
Win 500 Entrecard Credit from this post. Just read the following how.
The top utilizatin of my EntreCard Credits are the following:
1. Sponsoring Contests
2. To Give As Prizes
3. Give Aways and Donations
You might have a questioning mind why advertisement is not listed. But behind that questioning mind, there is also a reserved answer: "EC ads are just way too high for the returns it gives." Maybe you notice that and whether we admit it or not, much are so disappointed with the credits they have paid for the ads. No hurt feelings for me, Ijust stopped advertising using my credits after the stats are laughing back at me!
So what do I do then? As of now, I have sponsored contest of around four or five of them. No big deal only from 500EC credits to 1,200 EC credits are my pledged amount everytime but the good side is, I got the link... this is one important thing for me.
As to prizes, you know it that my posts give out 500 EC ( i tried also 600 once) for lucky commenter. Although I have not drawn yet with my new rule on how to give out the 500, it is only to give thanks to people who shared their ideas here.
The rules for the drawing of a winner of 500 EC credits in each post (with announcement) are:
1. The 20th commenter must be reached. That counts me.
2. Commenters are represented by the numbers 1 to 20 with respect to the order in the comment section of the post.
3. I will enter the number 1-20 at randomizer.org and the first to be randomize represents the winner.
4. In case I am in the number, Ithe second number will be the winner. I will screen-shot the result and post it as an edit so no one will question.
5. In case the supposed winner is not an EC member, I would ask him/her first if he/she would consider joining the community and claim the prize. If not, he/she will be replaced by the next number randomized until the EC winner will be determined.
6. Winning commenter is informed either through his/her blog or through EC e-mailing system.
7. If the winner is not EC member but wants to donate the EC to a friend or fellow blogger, that is allowed.
8. Multiple comments are accepted and they accordingly gets multiple entries. No one liners and unrelevant comments will be allowed though.
God luck guys. This is only to say thank you. If you have been in previous rules in this blog, it still applies. This means if you still remember the 999 code, you still get 50 EC per relevant comment plus a possibility to win the 500. Isn't that cool?
Since I have nothing much to do with my EC credits and I also do not sell them, this is the only way I feel best to spend them, to give directly. Of course I still love to sponsor.
Nest post will be the wrapping up of all posts that still have that 500EC winnable notation. I actually do not erase the notation/announcement until the winner is chosen so you can still win them guys. Before it was the 15th commenter to win but I have reconsidered it because of unfairness to early comenters.
So back to the question, how do you utilize your entrecard credits?
