We feel your pain...
Trying to get your comics out there…
In today’s digital world, it is virtually impossible to earn revenue from your webcomics. The earnings model for digital artists is not usually conducive to monetizing your content. So creating webcomics merely as a hobbyist seems to be the current reality. For the exposure you need, you create constantly and for free. It’s stiff competition and you have to consistently deliver the goods.
If you don’t consistently create and reach an ever-growing audience, you will never be able to monetize your content. We get it. For example, if you make your comic too long, then no one will read it. Don’t start posting too soon. Build a backlog so that you always have something new to post. You can’t expect too much too soon. It takes time to be successful. The pressure is high when you have to update every week, or even every day, and to offer more and more free content to your readers.
Lower barriers to entry...
The convenience of being a webcomic is, of course, that virtually anyone with an Internet connection can publish comics utilizing a myriad of digital and social media platforms. You can explore any style of art your heart desires, and can use digital media to discover other webcomics like yourself who inspire you—helping you curate your own style of comic. And, thanks to the Internet, there are no longer the strict gatekeepers like comic syndicates—the bulwarks of newspaper and print comics—to impede your exposure. But it is still a strictly competitive medium of artistic expression.
You can join communities with like-minded people who are interested in similar topics and genres. Whatever kind of artist you are, there is a webcomic for you. This is nice and all, but maybe a bit naive. We know that there are many concerns that you have to address when creating your webcomic in order to gain exposure and ultimately earn revenue doing it.
That is why we created Pindify. We created a platform so artists can curate their own Portfolio. A platform where you can post your webcomics on your schedule, and actually get paid. Where your fans and Supporters can follow, engage, give feedback, potentially earning you more revenue.
So here we are.
When something clicks and comes together, you just know it. It’s inspired. That’s what we are creating here at Pindify. Pindify is the next big arts and media platform—where you can earn for publishing exclusive content and also earn when your followers and supporters interact with your Portfolio. Where you invite your most loyal supporters—who can interact with you as a webcomic and experience your art—whatever medium you pursue.
We understand how many hours you pour into a project. We get it. Your best art is created from the deepest parts of who you are. And we understand that is art worth preserving, and it is art worth sharing—in a way that doesn’t cheapen your artistic vision.
While we cannot guarantee success in the world of webcomics—whatever metrics are being used to measure it—we are here to support you as you put your heart on the line.
