First things first. I need to get this out of the way.
To kick of the holiday season, I am sponsoring a special promotion in the store today. I’m calling it the Theater Hopper one-day $10 sale! The concept is really simple. Everything in the store is $10 for one day (plus shipping and handling)! Today! So that means both books are on sale for $10 as well as all of our baby doll tees and t-shirts.
So if you haven’t bought Theater Hopper: Year One and Year Two yet, today is your lucky day. You could very soon be the proud owner of over 400 pages of full-color comic goodness for $20 (plus shipping and handling). That is an excellent deal! Maybe you have a friend or family member on your holiday gift list who loves movies. These books would be PERFECT for them! But you have to act fast! Because by the time Thursday morning rolls around, all the prices turn back into pumpkins!
To help kick off this promotion, I have also designed a new t-shirt! A sequel to our most popular offering, I bring you "Spoiler II!"
I can’t tell you how long people have been asking for a follow up to the "Spoiler" shirt. I’m happy to make it available to you during the pre-order period for the low, one-day price of $10 (plus shipping and handling). I hope you guys enjoy it because it was very difficult to draw all the research together and think up new spoilers the second time around. I think I may have used up all the "classic" spoilers for the first shirt. So, in it’s way, the sequel is somewhat inferior – just like REAL sequels! Y’see – we give you the authentic experience here at Theater Hopper!
At any rate, take your time and browse around the store. Take advantage of this offer because I don’t know the next time I’m going to do something like this!
Oh, and speaking of taking advantage of things, you guys should really look into advertising in the sponsorship area below the comic and above this blog. I’ve made the switch and now Project Wonderful is managing these ads and it’s pretty slick. On Monday, you could have your ad up on the site for free. It’s Wednesday and ad prices are starting to climb. So you’ll want to get in on the ground floor to take advantage of things before it get’s out of your price range.
I should let you know that I made an effort to promote the all-day $10 sale around the web comic news sites today, so hopefully we’ll see a little extra traffic from people hungry for a deal. All those extra eyes could be looking at YOUR ad, y’know!
Talk to you soon!
I just wanted to sent a quick thanks to everyone who placed an order yesterday as part of our special one-day $10 sale promotion. The response was OUTSTANDING!
To be truthful, I thought I was going to end up taking a bath with everything being so dramatically cut in price, but your support offset any losses and I think there are going to be a lot of happy people this holiday season!
I was really surprised how many of you ordered books! Obviously the lower price was an incentive. So I’m pleased to announce that Theater Hopper: Year One has dropped in price from $18.95 to $15.00 (plus shipping and handling). So if you missed yesterday’s sale, you can still take advantage of reduced prices.
A quick note to those of you that ordered shirts – right now both Spoiler I and Spoiler II are at the printer. But I expect to have them back soon. I plan on shipping everything out before the holiday season so everyone will get what they ordered before the end of the month. Naturally, this excludes international orders. But domestic orders should be seeing their stuff soon.
Incidentally, shirts are still available for $10 because that’s pretty much the price point they were at before the sale. It was the books that were the real bargin. I’m just pointing it out to let you know that you can still take advantage of great prices!
Stay tuned to the site in the near future. I’m going to bring back the bundle option so you can buy both books at the same time for a discounted price. I’m also planning on throwing t-shirts into the mix for greater savings. I’ll let you know when that’s all wrapped up.
Quick note… Has anyone been listening to Scott Kurtz’s live, interactive podcasts he’s been broadcasting for the last few weeks. I finally bought a headset a little while back and have participated in the last two shows. I think this technology is great and am starting to consider doing my own shows for Theater Hopper.
I’ve always wanted to do a podcast, but I was a little turned off by the one-sided nature of the conversation. I talk to myself for two hours, record it and you download it. Kind of vanilla.
With the TalkShoe application, you guys can listen to me live, send me text message in a chat room or call-in and talk to me directly using a calling program like Skype! It’s really cool and it brings a whole new level of interactivty to the program. Imagine if I were talking about this week’s new movie releases and you guys could chime in on the discussion! Just like talk radio!
Anyway, I strongly suggest that you investigate both Skype and TalkShoe. Maybe even listen to Kurtz’s weekly broadcast just to get your bearings. Because this is something I want to bring to Theater Hopper very soon.
