Have you considered facebook ads? I think they're about the same.

I almost created an account for it but got lazy and didn't have an icon that was whatever by whatever pixels.

Maybe next time, I already plunked the money down.

I was thinking of google ads, and hit up all the sci-fi websites.

Dare I say Dominic Deegan? PvP online? OH NO SLIPSHINE?!

Goonish Shiv and Dreamland chronicles might be good. Maybe It's Walky or Waspi Square...

I just saw the big ad for this on my site and clicked it. (Hey, the ad worked!) However, the ad took me to Galaxion's home page which is currently showing the last page of chapter three.

I've never read the comic before and it feels like my first exposure is some sort of dramatic reveal that I have no context for and may even hurt my enjoyment of the full story as I go back to read it.

Perhaps it would be more apptopriate to link to chapter one page one?

Just an outsider's observation.

I suggest you start hitting up smaller sites. Better readthrough rates, I find. When I run campaigns, I'm cheap but I get a good amount of hits because I cancel ads if they don't give me two cents a click or less in a day. So my frequent choices...

Wayfarer's Moon.
Xylia.
Palace in the Sky.
Mysteries of the Arcana.
SpiderForest.

Honestly, though, my best click rates/costs for clicks, come from smaller sites, in the 100-200 reader range. We're talking like, .008 dollars a click. It takes time but it's worth it. You can reach a large audience by finding a bunch of skyscapers worth 10 cents a day.

Done, and done! I kept half at the main page - so there's a 50/50 chance to see her most recent work, or start at the beginning. All the bigguns now start at the beginning.

Metrius: Actually I think she has a pretty good following at most of those places. went ahead and just pushed forward a campaign with some pretty good results. Some of those sites being listed! This time I found a honeypot -- where between X & Y unique visits you get a TON of exposure, for a huge drop in price. PM me if anyone is curious at what that sweet spot is.

I'm going to set it for $20 a day instead of $10, so at the end of the week we can see how much sticks around without the push for a couple days!

I went to see how much I could get a copy of the old printed Galaxion comics.

According to Amazon I can get them for as low as $106.99!


CHEAP!

BWAHAHAHAHA

I have got BOXES of that stuff. I suppose there are a few issues I'm running low on, but I'm not out of anything. Even the ancient minis, for crying out loud.

So, if I sell them for $50, that's like a bargain, right? Wink

ttallan, are you noticing an increase in your hits? how about folks going through the archives?

Galaxion banners are now gracing Life's a Witch as well! (I'm using the version of the banner that doesn't mention bewbs. Laughing )

Doing my little part, too. Galaxion is on my links page. This is such a good idea for a community to help a sista out Wink

Good luck, ttallan!

Yes, I've found that too. There's too much competition for the big-name sites among advertisers and I don't find that the results justify the expense. Find a bunch of (slightly) random mid-level sites and advertise there. My theory is, people who visit smaller sites are more likely to want to add a new comic to their roster. Also, your ad will look nicer next to all the cheapo crummy ads from people not willing to pay a lot.

I know. I mean, I'm paying .008 dollars a click for one site I'm advertising on.

I also did plug Galaxion (kind of... well... I linked it) in my last news post.

Amazon wants $80 for a kids book I put out years ago. And here I've been selling 'em for $2.99....

As far as PW advertising goes, here' something I've been trying with some success. Try limiting your search to sites with a current bid between 0-0.01 cents and a minimum bid of 0-0.01 cents. You can often get advertising for free or nearly free this way, and get exposure on a ton of different (admittedly low-traffic) sites.

Maskerman was still stuck to that hull, so the crew had to do something: http://www.maskerman.nl/index.php?strip=116&lang=

Also, I'm still stumbling about 3 pages per day. Also sometimes doing pages from the bonus-sections or the fan-art. And plugging every update on my Facebook Cool
