Spent the day doing targeted marketing & placing ads for the Small Life Form shows next week. Getting excited about the idea of leaving the house for a few days.
The Lost Kisses click through ad campaign is getting a lot of hits (nearly 1%), but no sales generated as of yet. I’m glad that I had the coupon for free ads. I still haven’t figured out how to get people to buy stuff even after I get them to the Silber website. I have always been confused by that aspect of things. How do I get people to decide to buy things? Is there something my site doesn’t do as well as other labels sites?
I have started to re-tool my follow-up email for when an order ships. They will now have a recommended if you like section pertaining to the order at hand & the rest of the Silber catalog. So if you like Aarktica you should try mwvm, northern valentine, alan sparhawk, & if thousands. Will it make a difference? I don’t know….
The Carta CD should be going in for manufacturing in the next few days. Pretty excited by the idea. Probably the street date will be early January.
Assembled a bunch of mini-comics. I need to get some stuff ready so I have some work to do on the tour. I really don’t have enough time to get everything done before I go that I need to.
While doing some paperwork I found an accounting error that I had put the value of the discs manufactured this year at zero, so it makes the year look bad in the money sector instead of the disaster I have been looking at for the past couple of months.
Talked to Chris Olley (Six by Seven, Twelve) about the possibility of him helping set up the download store for Silber. We’ll see in the next few days what ends up happening.
I had been thinking about using some robot models for doing a comic that keeps having artists bail on it. Doing photos & altering them in Photoshop to look like highly stylized drawings. But then I realized that it just wouldn’t quite work for the story I want to tell because it calls for more emotion than I can invoke from a doll with one expression. Going to try to find an artist or two to contact about it before I go to bed as I really wanted it done by the end of the year.
