One of the major things that determines the success of creators involves Marketing & Promotions.  Creators have no problem creating but that is just one piece of the puzzle for success. We want our members here at www.BlackScienceFictionSociety.com to be successful with their creative businesses. Here is something for you to ponder.

 

OUR ADVERTISING RATIONALE:

A man wakes up in the morning after sleeping on an advertised bed, in advertised pajamas. He will bathe in an advertised tub, wash with advertised soap, shave with an advertised shaver and have advertised juice, cereal and toasted bagel (toasted in an advertised toaster) for breakfast.

He'll then put on advertised clothing and glance at his advertised watch. He will ride to work in advertised car, call in to let his office know he's running late from his advertised cell phone, and sit down in an advertised desk chair when he gets to the office. He'll work at his advertised computer, and write with an advertised pen.


Yet this man hesitates to advertise (or market his business), saying that marketing and advertising don’t work. Finally, when his unadvertised business goes under, he will advertise it for sale. This is something we have to think about and act on for our creations to reach the hands of our audiences.

Our Advertising Option Here:

 

With this said, what steps are you taking to advertise your creations?

Whatever steps necessary.

We're going several routes. My son and I wrote a book to raise awareness about environmental issues. We are also preparing a children's show that will further raise revenue and awareness about environmental issues and increase sales of our book. We are currently shopping environmental agencies/companies to help underwrite our shows in exchange for access to our pre sold audiences who bought tickets to a save our earth show.   

All you need to do is make a spectacle of yourself and the attention will come your way by default... Then sell them your products while you have a captive audience!

Here in Hollywood there 1001 ways to act a fool and get noticed easily... I plan to leak a sex tape of my character with the Frog Princess and go from there! Lol

To cover up the indiscretion of one of their wholesome maiden princesses Disney will pay me loads of money to make my character go away and I will retire on an exotic island as I plot my worldwide takeover using nanite technology!

If that doesn't work email blasts and TROLLING multiple comic book forums should do the trick... It's free btw so why not!

The internet connects everybody who has a computer and a smart phone...

Everything! TV. Internet. Print. Point of Purchase. Talk and verbal hype. Flyers. Want ads. Banners. Product placement. T-Shirts. Endorsements. Now I am looking toward a few acts of God!

Oh yeah........CONVENTIONS TOO!

Turtel just get arrested for something really really stupid and draw all the attention to yourself and onlookers will buy your product out of curiosity!

Iran I feel that. I have a concept of show casing a invention via a Documentary

I'm new to the Black Science Fiction society. So far I'm liking what i see here.

I'm interested in this topic because I feel like I might be in the same boat as many of the other folks in here. I'm a new creator looking for strategies I can leverage to market my comics.

I'm sure I'll be making use of the advertising space here in the near future. :)

We are glad to have you man.

I think it takes a marketing mix. A little, print, video, web, live appearances to cover all bases.

10 Ways to promote your book without spending a cent


You probay are not getting the responces to you book sales without diligent marketing as a self publisher.

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
