You may or may not have noticed, but I’ve added a new little banner-thingee at the bottom of the page to promote the new webcomic network I belong to – Dayfree Press.
It’s a great opportunity for Theater Hopper to hob-knob with some artists who really know what they’re doing and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.
If you’d like to take a look at some of the other sites that are part of our posse, you can view the recently restructured links page.
Signing up with Dayfree has got me thinking more about making Theater Hopper a self-sustaining venture financially. What that means, I’m not sure. I’m thinking about selling some advertising space. With 1,000 to 1,500 unique hits per day, I think we can support that. I’d probably keep the rates cheap, if anyone is interested. Hit me up with an e-mail or say something in the forums if you think it’s an interesting idea.
The posters have sold okay – I’ve recouped my upfront costs – but I’m nervous because not all of them have sold. Or, more specifically, did not sell at the speed I would have expected. Obviously, this makes me gun-shy in terms of offering more future merchandise. Maybe my expectations were just set to high.
I’ll admit that somewhere down the road I would like to do another poster. I have the idea and the treatment all ready to go. I’ll probably do a smaller run, so automatically that increase the value due to rarity. But I would be going all out on this one – so you know the quality will be exceptional, even over what I already offer.
If you haven’t bought a poster yet, please do so. We’re almost to the point where 75% of the run is depleted. Remember, you don’t have to order through PayPal. Just e-mail me and I will tell you where you can send check, cash, or money order. I can’t do the second poster until I sell out of the first.
I don’t know. These are just thoughts floating around in my head. In a month, Theater Hopper will have been around a year. If I’m going to keep going, I need to raise my game.
I just wanted to remind everyone that we have an open space for advertising your web site there under the logo of the site.
Prices are very fair and I promise to pimp you out until I’m blue in the face.
If you feel like doing business with a reputable, hard-working Midwesterner, more information on the subject can be found here.
I feel kind of awkward posting this to the main page of the site, but there was an individual I had exchanged e-mails with about a month ago that was interested in advertising on the site at the beginning of December. I’VE MISPLACED YOUR E-MAILS! Please get in touch with me soon. I’m very interested in doing business with you!
Be sure to check out our latest sponsor Destined For Nothing. They’ve advertised with Theater Hopper before and have been nice enough to do so again. The comic is a great piece of social and political satire which is sorely lacking in the web comic scene if you ask me. Check it out and be enlightened!
I just wanted to call everyone’s attention to a few things.
First, please visit our latest advertiser Stickman Limited. The name of the comic is an apt description – truth in advertising! – but it’s a good comic, so please loan them a little link-love.
You’ll notice their advertisement right beneath the comic. I wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that this is your opportunity to also place an ad in this space. This is a great bargain, folks. 50,000 ad views for $7. The crew at Stickman Limited was smart enough to know a great deal when they see one.
Wanted to hook up my good friend Brian Carroll over at Instant Classic with a shout out. The server that IC was being hosted on was struck by the MyDoom virus. That’s why you didn’t see his site for a while. Then, once they brought it back up, he lost FTP access to his server. Well, everything is back to normal now and as a matter of fact, Brian just uploaded a new strip today. Welcome him back!
Lastly, did anyone notice this? How long has it been out there?
I don’t know what was dumped into the water supply yesterday, but I just checked the site’s statistics and we received 6,367 unique hits on Monday! Although site traffic has been increasing steadily over time, this was quite a spike!
I’m not pointing this out to be a braggart, but wanted to call your attention to it in case you were considering advertising with Theater Hopper. Our rates are some of the cheapest you’ll find and we’re only one of a handful of comics that make their rates known to potential customers UP FRONT!
If you have a web site you’d like to promote – and it doesn’t have to be another webcomic! It can be anything! – now would be a good time to hitch your wagon to Theater Hopper! Check our advertising page for more information!
We have a new sponsor at Theater Hopper. Be sure to check out Magic Video Clips. It’s a pretty cool idea, actually. Spend a little cash and get access to an online video that demonstrates cool magic tricks. There are previews of the tricks so you know what you’re getting and the cost is dirt cheap.
I’m seriously thinking about putting down some coin to figure out that Paint Brush Colour Change trick!
By the way, if you have a web site you’d like to advertise, you can find more information on how to do so here!
Real quick, everyone needs to visit the site of our latest advertiser JDizzle Comics.
Creator Jim Duncan was out of the game for a while, but now he’s back with a vengence. Show him some love! He writes some funny stuff!
By the by, everyone should make a point to stop by Split Reason, our latest advertiser. They sell all kind of cool clothes for the gamer within!
I really have my eye on that Hammer and Sickle hat!
