Readers of the comic familiar with the old site may have noticed something new show up in the last couple days: advertising. Have you seen it yet? It’s currently over on the right side of the site, just below the tip jar drawing. It’s an experiment for me, and so far it seems to be going smoothly. I don’t have plans to hang many of these little banners around, so you won’t be mistaking this for a newspaper’s site any time soon (and you certainly won’t have your browser get hijacked to show you a car commercial), but they’ll probably stick around for a little while as I get a feel for this.
What this also means is that if you’ve got something you’d like to promote, go ahead and keep that advertising space in mind! It is definitely not the internet’s most expensive piece of real estate, so if you’ve got something you feel a reader of the Tyranny of Pants (someone like yourself!) would be interested in, go ahead and have a look at that “your ad here” link under the banner. Most of these ads seem to be for other comics so far, but I think they can link to just about anything that you can hitch to a website. Perhaps you make bespoke banjos, or want a broader audience for your Objectivist Limericks. Maybe you’re a man who loves his cat because his nose is so pink and want people to read about your adventures. Or maybe you’ve got some sort of event coming up that you’d like to promote. Basically, if you’re a person who does interesting things, you can probably put a little ad for it here.
If you’ve got any questions, go ahead and send me a message! In the meantime, I’m going to get to work on doing some marketing of my own.
