Today we're going to chat about how you go about getting more readers on Drunk Duck for your webcomic! Hyena hell did an amazing newspost about it for us, outlining all the ways you can increase your audience here on DD in her fantastic, colourful vernacular! Along with many great analogues from the real world. But I'll cover the basics again in quick point form here:
1. Make sure you have a signature image banner so that when you contribute to the forums people can see that you have a comic.
2. Comment on other people's regularly, recently updating comics, especially the top ten, and others will click on your name to have a look at your comic- make sure you never post “hey check out my work” as a comment though, that will have the opposite effect. Just be complimentary and people will come.
2. Commenting on Newsposts can work as well.
3. Make sure your profile page has enough interesting info about you that someone would want to see your work.
4. frequent updates will put your comic icon on the front page more often so more people will check it out.
5. Increasing popularity through outside sources is done by getting a link to your comic on a popular blog, buying advertising through Project Wonderful on other comics or on The Duck Webcomics is a sure fire way.
6. If you get enough views you comic will go into the top 10 listing and then more people will see it on the front page
Our music theme by Gunwallace this week was for Sword of Kings. It's urgent, regal chase music, Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk meets Ivanhoe. This is an exciting track that conjures scenes of high adventure and epic battle.
