No (big) John Chow Effect :-(

Finally, there was no big John Chow effect. I was expecting much more traffic from my Wavumi Entrecard being displayed one full day on the John Chow Dot Com blog :-(

You can see that the 13th of December was even not my highest traffic day!

It's #1 on my Wavumi Entrecard statistics, but still not very impressive. Taking into account that a 125 x 125 Button Sponsorhip on John Chow Dot Com blog costs $500/month, I was expecting much more traffic... Maybe it was not a good day!

The Bug in the Configuration is Fixed ;-)

There was a bug preventing you to update the configuration of your Widget :-( But, it is now fixed ;-) Thus, you can again change the font, the width, the number of readers, the background, the title and the link colours of your widget. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

If you find another bug or encounter any difficulties with Wavumi, please let me know by sending a (short) e-mail to wavumi@gmail.com.

The Entrecard Coupons Winners are...

The Entrecard Coupons Winners are...

The winners of my Entrecard Coupons are:

Widgets Lab did register to Wavumi in order to get the Entrecard coupon, thus I did send him 10 credits. On the other hand, Pam Hoffman is an early adopter of the Wavumi widget - I thank her for that - and did then receive 20 credits! I have not seen her on the Entrecard "Campaign" page so far, but I am sure she will join soon - at least, I will send her a reminder ;-)

You should have noticed that this "contest" was not very popular. I was ready to give away 150 credits, and at the end, I have given 30 credits - I have already used the remaining 120 credits for advertisement ;-) Maybe the number of credits was not sufficient, I think next time I will target one single winner with a prize of 100 credits at least - lesson learned ;-)

Free Entrecard Credits for Wavumi Members

I have been addicted to Entrecard.com these last days, I have played a lot with it. I have even sent some feedback to the development team. One of them was about 3rd party cookie, it seems they have the same problem that I encountered at the beginning of the development of Wavumi, see my (old) post How to enable (unblocked) your 3rd party cookie from April 2007. This feedback was appreciated: Wavumi is mentioned a the post Letting your users help you help them written by the guy developing Entrecard.com, and I received an Entrecard coupon for 50 credits.

I have decided to give you these credits as a welcome gift in the Wavumi Community ;-) I will give 10 credits to the first 5 new members. The procedure is the following:

  1. You register to Wavumi by clicking here.
  2. You install the Wavumi widget on your blog/site.
  3. You send me an e-mail at wavumi@gmail.com with the URL of your blog/site.
  4. I will send you back an Entrecard coupon for 10 credits.

And you know what!? I hate these promotions trying to recruit new customers, without paying attention to the existing customers! Therefore, if you are an old Wavumi member, you can also send me an e-mail - after re-installing the Wavumi widget if necessary ;-) - and you will get 20 credits from my account. I will give away 100 credits I have earned (my addiction was not for nothing).

Ladies and gentlemen, I will now go to check my inbox...

BlogRush and Entrecard Videos

From the beginning of the development of the Wavumi project, I was thinking about promoting it by creating a marketing video. But, I am still searching where to start... On the other hand, I have found two videos I like a lot: the presentation video of BlogRush, as well as the one of Entrecard. The video I would like to create would not be very different from these ones!

If you can point me to the right direction in order to create such a high quality marketing video, please do not hesitate to contact me ;-)

New Design for Wavumi (2nd)

Following the nice comment from ~ Swann on my previous post, I have re-started working on the new design of the Wavumi web site.

I would like to show you a first mock-up in order to get early feedback. Many thanks in advance for your comments. So, here is the new design:

As a reminder, the current design is:

As I have already explained it in my previous post, I am definitively not a designer! Thus, even if it is in line with my philosophy, I have "copied" this design from BlogRush. I have been quite impressed by its success, so I found a good idea to get some "inspiration" from it ;-)

A New Design for Wavumi

Dear All, you have probably noticed that I have not worked a lot on Wavumi recently... I still have to work on other less interesting stuff in order to gain some money ;-) Anyway, I would like to work on it again, and after some deep thoughts, I have decided that the next step will be an upgrade of the design!

But, I am definitively not a designer :-/ Thus, even if it is not really in line with my philosophy, I will "copy" the design of an existing site... And, recently, I have been quite impressed by the success of BlogRush, so I will get some "inspiration" from it ;-)

As a sneak preview of my current work, let me show you the new Wavumi logo:

As usual, any feedback are more than welcome ;-)
