I’ve decided to start organizing some of the testimonials from buyers of the Cash for Cartoonists ebook+coaching product. This one comes in from comic creator Scott Story who has been around the webcomic and independent comics scene for years.
Iâ€™ve known D.J. Coffman online for years, and Iâ€™ve always thought of him as sort of a webcomic futurist. I first learned about print-on-demand from D.J., himself an early adopter. I learned how to monetize my webcomics from his blogâ€™s â€œHow to Make Money with Your Webcomicsâ€ series. Other cartoonists covered this material later on, but as far as I knew D.J. was there first.
With all this in mind, I purchased D.J.â€™s new e-book, â€œCash for Comics.â€ Normally, Iâ€™m too cost conscious to buy something like this, but I felt sure there would be ideas in here that would help me make more money. I was correct: spot illustrations had never crossed my mind, nor had greeting cards or licensing. I thought I knew about SEO and working with affiliate marketing, but here I discovered there are some useful elements of that I didnâ€™t know.
Iâ€™ll be honest, if you are a webcartoonist, and you want to make a go of it, then you canâ€™t really put a price tag on this information. Thatâ€™s not a silly platitude, either; D.J. lays out what you need to do, and then itâ€™s up to you to implement it.
