Frequently asked questions Contact us

How much does TrendMD cost?

TrendMD can be used on your website(s) for free, indefinitely. We promote links to your content on third-party sites in the TrendMD network so long as your credit balance is above zero. You determine how much TrendMD will cost based on how many new visitors you want us to direct to your website(s). You can add to your credit balance by setting a weekly budget or by using the auto-reinvest function which uses the revenue you earn from clicks on third-party sponsored links featured on your website(s), to promote your own content. ‘In-network’ recommendations are always free. So if you want to ensure that your journal(s) get 1000 additional visitors per month, you set your weekly budget to $250 USD/week. See Additional visitors acquired for more details.
