Solving Webcomic Issues We All Face.
This podcast we discuss:
Byron: I am sharing the same issue with a listener on a new comic I want to launch in 2013: Do you think it’s a mistake to release a webcomic that’s black & white? It’s not film nior, and the lack of color isn’t artistic specifically. I just would like to release 5 pages weekly, and color isn’t my strength. From: Stephen Fox of http://www.foxstorytelling.com/
Dawn: Now that Z&F is “seasonal”, meaning 4 months on and 2 months off, should I do away with my Caption Contests? Those used to be my cover for when “life happens”, and I need a week off. Now, I could probably post the contest on Mon, then a comic on Wed, then the winner of the contest on Fri, especially with the buffer I have planned. Would keeping the contests be pushing my luck, or do they still have some merit?
Chris: Have you ever thought you had what you thought was an interesting online promotional gimmick for your comic only to later be accused of promoting spam instead?
Robin: What is the psychology of a sale? How do you find the right price point? EXAMPLE: At DCC I was offering a poster for $10, but not selling any of them. On Sunday, I held a special Father’s Day sale for the poster and reduced the price to $7. We sold almost all of them, but was it the right price point, or the sale?
