Last Day To Get the Comic Academy’s Webcomic Masterclass for $7

In appealing to the masses to get involved with this program, I want to lead you into some new ideas.

There are TWO THINGS I want to point out in the HOW TO MAKE COMICS REVIEW from yesterday, I didn’t cover, because I wanted to go indepth with these issues today as we look at the future of comics.

The FIRST–The SUBSCRIPTION WALL:

We all know comics online are free. The subscription wall is the blockade that comes when you start charging for your online comic.
————————-
Dave Kellet says, “Online readers have shown again and again that they are not willing to pay for content online. There are 10,000 failed internet ventures — and an equal number of venture capitalists to back that up. … How are you going grow your readership? (your content) is all locked away…. Trust us… as much as we’d love them to, subscription walls don’t work.”

Dave Kellet says, “You create your content and with each new installment 10,000 readers are entertained. What’s better, 10,000 readers are telling their friends about your work, new readers are diving into your archives and your readership is growing. Here’s where a subscription wall might — might – be of some use. Keep all existing work on you site free (including regular updates) but offer additional unique content for those who are willing to subscribe. There may be a core audience who is willing to pay for a little something extra.”
————-

Dave, you just answered you question. You grow your readership from your core base of subscribers. This type of subscription wall WILL be VERY USEFUL. Your core subscribers will pay you again and again and again over the course of their lifetime?

Can you imagine if Gary Larson or Bill Watterson was continually putting out new content now online? They would gazillionaires with the raving fanbase coming to them to give them money on each new product lauch they did and Mr. Watterson wouldn’t have had to make so many strips about the ills of newspaper publishers.

I tell you all about it in my INDEPENDENT’S DAY Coaching program, which I’m giving you away for free when you try out the Comic Academy’s Webcomic Marketing MasterClass for $7.

I feel sorry for those who missed on this great endeavor. It truly was life changing for those who attended. That’s okay. You can still access it, but it will cost you a fair share more than $7 if you don’t get it today. Take the journey and see what you are missing. The bonuses I’ve talked about go away after this today.

The SECOND ITEM — I want to bring you attention to is NICHE MARKETING.

By diving into a Niche Market, you can reap many benefits.

——
Dave Kellet says ” The marketing angles and business considerations are important, but they have to come later. … The art has to come first.”

I will not disagree with Dave, because for you, your art matters immensely. However, to others, your art doesn’t mean jack. I would like to offer another perspective. If you want to go down a long, long, long road and then die, and then have your art pay you big fortunes. By all means let the art come first. However, if you are going to make a quicker route to getting those fortunes, I would recommend you go directly to learning marketing for a distinct niche that you care about so that you can see if anyone cares about your stuff. Obviously if you are going to sell art, you have to create art, but create that art in your marketing to be used in your marketing to sell it.

Brad Guigar say, “That kind of fill-a-niche approach to comic strip conceptualization is exactly why syndicated comics are dying a slow death in American newspapers.”

I would agree with Brad when it comes to comic strip conceptualization. But I don’t agree that the method is bad. Only the execution. The Comic strips gather people that they think will be a mass audience. I don’t think the newspapers are looking to fill any niche. They want a diverse amount of titles to appeal to mass readers. True niche marketing would be putting Doonesbury on the political page, or putting Cathy in the Fashion section. Or putting For Better and Worse in the Life and Times section. Or Putting Garfield and Marmaduke in the Pet Section.

Niche advertising to sponsors is a way in which you can make your fortunes as a webcomic creator.
