New Reader Drive

This is where we're going to discuss the new reader drive, my attempt to get more readers so that I can do this full time and you guys can get comics 7 days a week! Such a good deal!

So, any ideas on good locations to buy advertising? Where have you seen Filthy Lies around the net? Have you posted links to Filthy Lies around the net? Talk about it here!

You advertise on Keenspot?

Got any banners/buttons we can post up?

Are we (the little readers) allowed to use images from comics to make some?

In the bonus section are a few banners and a button.

You're highly encouraged to make anything! Seriously. Fans know what they like about the comic, and so often come up with things that the authors hadn't even thought about using.

Button I made to display on my DeviantArt page. Just look under the burning monkey.

I work in a dive bar. I'd rather not have people know how much of a nerd I am and then beat my ass.

I like the webcomics though - they make me moist. Like a cake.

Have you looked into advertising on those google ads? Those are EVERYWHERE.

Also, ask Moogie if you can advertise on his Dominic Deagan comic. I know he's not keenspot anymore and has his own site and takes his own advertisements. Good luck. ^^

Nice link button, pitchblack.

And Dragyn, yes, I'm thinking of google ads, specifically aiming at political blogs and whatnot.

I know the guy that draws Something Positive hires out advertising space on his website.

Also have you considered doing something on the site itself to attract readers. Maybe a week of cheesecake art or something along those lines.

Granted it may be a bit hard with only one female cast member though.

And some readers might prefer beefcake.

That's true. Maybe both could be done. That way everybody would be happy.

I tend to draw more male nudity than female nudity in the comic, if you notice. Naked ninjas probably top the list.

Here's an idea

MAYBE just MAYBE if you managed to even follow the MWF, or hell even managed ACTUALLY posting relyably once a week, youd have a faithful following.

There is no point reading a comic when it updates spuratically at best then has some lame excuse about how youe "lost your ability" or "hate house shopping"

LAME! Want more readers? Be responsible.

Thats MZ. Poppyseeds:)

And Im just so sad everytime I open the page and see no new webcomic.

You can only reread the archives so many time before the people in white threaten to take away your computer...or you.

Im sorry. Lack of humor makes me lash out. Thats how all the children died.

I mean! It was the rabid wearwolves! Thats it! Dammit my attorney wanred me to watch what I type in webcomic forums. It holds up in court don't you know.

sorry mz poppyseeds

and i agree

i die a little on the inside when i can't find a new comic.

but only a little

adn if they pull up this convo in the court of law, we could swap user names (they'd never know the difference!!)
