Presented by Brad Guigar
This webinar originally aired on April 22, 2020
2 hours with Q&A’s
Thinking of building a webcomic? Or do you already have one and want to expand your audience? The good news is that publishing has never been more accessible to artists, and that has given many folks the power to launch their own careers without gatekeepers. But (as comics fans know) that power comes with responsibility. In this case, building an audience and getting your book printed includes learning good social media strategies, crowdfunding like Patreon and Kickstarter, and business basics.
In this webinar, Brad will take you through the ins and outs of getting your comic, webcomic, or graphic novel in front of an audience, and how to grow and then leverage your following to meet – or surpass – your goals.
