Advertising ideas

Postby Joe » 22 Oct 2010, 00:33

Hi, everybody!

I started advertising The Pocalypse on October 14 and it's been doing great, so far! We're getting a lot of visitors and the feedback has been very uplifting :D

Just wanna ask everyone if you know of any other good places to advertise The Pocalypse.

These are the places I have spread the word so far:

- MS Paint Adventures (stopped for now, need more money :) )
- Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (stopped for now, need more money :) )
- The Webcomic List (featured comic for a month)
- Top Web Comics (submitted ad, waiting to be approved) - also, vote for The Pocalypse here, so we can climb the ranks!
- Urban Dead (active until it runs out of impressions)
- Lost Zombies (just a profile, no ads or features)

Any other places come to mind? (Free places would be great, by the way.)

Thanks a lot! I love seeing The Pocalypse grow and grow :D

Not sure about prices but how does advertising on facebook sound? That'll definitely get the message out to enough people :mrgreen:

Maybe if you advertise on some of the more known web comics.The advertising on MSPA worked well,so it probably would work other sites.(Can't think of another one for the life of me,sorry.)

I've tried Facebook, but it didn't turn out too well. But, I'm waiting on a Facebook advertising coupon, so when it comes in, I'm going to try again with different/better keywords and such.

Definitely! MSPA and SMBC have given me the most visitors by an enormous margin. I'll re-activate my ads when I get some more money :D I also added a Link Exchange page to the site, so we'll soon have a nice network of exchanges :)

You could also try sites like reddit and digg (even though digg has been struggling lately). If you get on the front page you will definatly get quite a bit of traffic. Dunno bout the quality of the traffic though but its traffic none the less =p

Also some other popular webcomic places you could try advertising on are the Penny Arcade site and Nuklear Power (8-bit Theater) site. Even though 8-bit theater is done they have other webcomics on thier site and seems they still generate a good amount of traffic.

Ill keep an eye out for any other places i can think of =)

Thanks, ajp3 :D

Project Wonderful asks on their website that the comic should have at least 30 updates before being considered to be an advertiser. I'll try anyways :)
