Ok lets forget about Pvp , Penny A. for a minute ok Im going to talk about the late 05 webcomics tactics that were used to increase the readership from newcomers in the webcomic world.(thats Im not going to count starslip crisis that were made by webcoics veteran just newguys.Ã‚ )
.- it started last year as a smackjeeves comic becomig popular in a short time, but when the host was down it moved to his own site it had that time 150-300 readers.
On 2006-04-12 it was featured on jostiq site http://www.joystiq.com/ the readership rised to 2500-3000.
July 17 06Ã‚ founder member ofÃ‚ Gamers Pair of Dice webcomic group , now he has 6000 readers when he updates. (not bad for someone that never did publicity on other sites or leeching other people forums)
readers.-10, 000 on updates
Now lets see Press start to play , http://www.pressstarttoplay.net/ , when D. started the comic it was promoted by Vgcats (when he had less than 7 strips) for a very long time (yes promotion via the mouth of a author of a famous webcmoic works). founder memberÃ‚ gamers pairs of dice.
readers.-10, 000 on updates
his modus operandi was making a lot of guest strips for pvp, writing for comixpedia doing art for webcartoonist web awards . Paying adds at online comics and a lot of webcomics lists (Yes he participates a lot in this forums) . early days when . IÃ‚ now its about over 2500 readers.
Ã‚ Cute Ninja girls
(Sean its a active member here) Ok this comic was posted in every comic forum I can remember (pvp, cad, vg cats, press start to play and a dozen more). he is active in every webcomics site, , writing a lot of articles. ANNOUNCED in every webcomic list with the really big adds for a long time.
but unlike multiplex there wasnt guest strips or any kind of guest art for contest or promo cng (or I least i never saw any of it Only Sean and his fans knows best)
Now on hiatus started with a readership about 300-500 when it finished it possibly had more than 1500 readers. now on hiatus
Thats all for today Im tired maybe I'll add a couple more later. Sorry for my grammar Im lazy to check it and my computer only correct spanish words (yes Im mexican so what !) bye
http://www.petprofessional.net/links.phpÃ‚ , Petpro was promoted since the start by Scott Kurtz in his webcomic several times, ergo it gave him instant big readership (being pimp by others help)
Even keep the audience when one of the artist Matt left the comic, and it was on hiatus (everyoneÃ‚ was curious who will be next artist)
averageÃ‚ estimate readership.- 10, 000Ã‚ by day
Ã‚ Ok This webcomic has madeÃ‚ all to promote the comic and thier work pay off , paying a lot of adds in webcomics site, founder member gamers pair of dice, making a pvp guest comic and nominated twice in the Wcca.
readers 8000-10000 on peak days.
Notes.- traffic rankings were taken from their sites, there is a lot more comics that were hits this year but these are the one that I've following.
