Promoting the duck!

Ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Sept. 1, 2017

Hi guys, we really need to Get the name of the Duck out there again and bring in the viewers. Can you please help us do that?
One good way would be to help us make Project Wonderful ads that would could put up on other comics to help us advertise all the great comics we have here :)
There are 3 sizes: 160 x 600, 300 x 250, and 728 x 90. Basically exactly the sizes of the ads we have up on our site currently!
If you could create ads for us in those formats that tell the world about the great comics we have here on DD that would be fantastic! Just post a link in the comments to where you have them hosted.

Other ways to help promote the Duck would be to help by buying advertising for DD your yourself, or give us your ideas for helping to promote us, we're all ears!
We really need to get our name out there if we're to survive.

Project Wonderful is on my list. I've tested Topwebcomics, adding my comic there by DD hosting and my visits were X4 more than usual. Maybe Topwebcomics helps with the DD promotion too. I didn't know DD needs promotion, so I'll add DD symbols in my accounts in DeviantArt and Twitter (when I create accounts in those places). What about a Kickstarter campaign? Or IndieGogo (which is free to open an campaign, at least). Even with a failed campaign, the promotion is good! what *I* can do is add a DrunkDuck advertisement in my indie game loading screen (but it will be only in the next year... so it isn't an "insta-help" right now).

Or, are you saying to create an ad block on our non DD sites, that specifically advertise for DD comics?

Would you want animated gif banners?

I apologize-- I don't mean to spam. You mention buying advertising. I don't really have anything exciting to advertise, but what the heck, I'm game. But I can't find anything regarding the subject at all. No links or FAQs or anything. How can you even go about doing this if we wanted to look into it?

DJMulcahy at 6:55PM, Sept. 3, 2017

I'll be going out tonight naked with a wearable Duck Webcomics sandwich board on me. I dunno if it'll help or not. Let me know if you see an uptick in readers.

DJMulcahy at 6:52PM, Sept. 3, 2017

Hmmm... I'm not very bright. I assume Project Wonderful is software that would place ads on a webpage we may have? Maybe? I'll totally post links on my personal and GN pages, but who knows who I am anyhow, so I'm sure that'll drive in all of one person. Lol. What else can we do to help? I'm enthusiastic about the Duck.

I plan to Project Wonderful. Once I get my schedule more constant and loading pages on time, i make sure use of the ads.

Ozoneocean at 10:26PM, Sept. 2, 2017

I'm talking about promoting the site on the basis of the comics we have here... Ah, don't worry guys I'll do it myself.

Ozoneocean at 10:25PM, Sept. 2, 2017

Either name is good

What *is* the appropriate name? Are we going back to "Drunk Duck"?

EmeraldComic at 7:06AM, Sept. 2, 2017

No wait we should make an app for it!

EmeraldComic at 7:02AM, Sept. 2, 2017

Maybe we should try and make some type of new features such as a message box or view count for the comics, idk I'm new and at first I found it very hard

Ozoneocean at 10:01PM, Sept. 1, 2017

True, the relaunch would help garner new creators, but we have to get our presence out there just to viewers really. Our ad revenue is way down and I'm paying over half the site costs myself. Maybe I'll set up an action council and we'll all work on tackling things: have an ad person, revenue person, redesign person, community person, social media person etc.

Ironscarf at 8:33AM, Sept. 1, 2017

I think the proposed redesign would be a fantastic basis for a relaunch/promotional drive. It might be more difficult to to generate interest with the same old look. Social media is the chief promotional tool now - maybe somebody here will know how to use it?

Ozoneocean at 6:00AM, Sept. 1, 2017

I'm not sure, probably the full name :)

When I mention my comic's updates on Twitter I mention that it's on Drunk Duck. For a while I used #drunkduck. Which is better?
