Puck Ad by ElectricGecko Puck Ad by ElectricGecko
So I'm thinking of running some banner ads on key comic-type sites, and this is what I've come up with so far.

I'm looking to generate some traffic, and originally I'd planned on having a whole cast of characters filling the panel, but with the copy and all that, I found one character seemed to be enough.

Let me know what you think.

I like this a LOT :) But, I think it is a great ad for people that already know Puck. Maybe some other character, or a more distinct image would be better, to titillate new readers :P

Yeah, I may refine the ad concept. It's a hard thing to do! And it takes such fiddling and work, for something that (to me) is sort of on the side. But it's important, I guess.

Nice ad! The dimensions of it would also make a great bookmark too!

Yeah, bookmark. Never thought of that. Mind you, people would actually have to be reading them ol' books to use one...

I still read them, I don't know about you but I don't trust all this digital stuff yet. I mean, I may sound old fashioned, but 20 years from now when all the suave cell phone aficionados have tentacles growing out of their heads suddenly these things won't be so cool anymore, lol.

Oh, I'm with you. But it seems like I'm an old man these days with all these digital whippersnappers running around me...

Lol, I know how that feels! I don't even own a cell phone (mostly because I hate them).

It's a nice drawing of Puck. But it doesn't give us a clue to what she's about, Freckles not withstanding. Couldn't you put something suggestive in the background to get people wondering along a definite line - a genre clue?

Yeah, that's a common point people have - that the ad really gives you no clue about the nature of the strip. And quite frankly, I don't think I COULD really effectively sum up the concept in that limited space. Perhaps if I went to a multi-frame animated GIF, but for this one, I was just trying to shoot for the curiosity factor.

It's a learning process, I guess. On to better and more interesting ads!

I figured as much, about summing it up, otherwise I'd have offered a suggestion. A potential solution is to pidgeon hole it in a genre. And while that may prove invalid, it may yet serve the purpose.
