Budget: A portion of $8,000.00 marketing and publicity budget. Galleys: Print and PDF galleys/blads will be available. National, Regional, and Market Specific Advertising: Prominent, recurring advertising in various strategic press outlets, both in print and online. Print/Online Media Campaign: We aggressively promote our titles and are always seeking out ways to garner attention, using both traditional means such as creating trailers and sending press releases and review copies to key media outlets and influential reviewers, but also creating custom marketing strategies unique to each release. These efforts have resulted in coverage across an array of media outlets including AV Club, Boing Boing, The Chicago Tribune, Comic Book Resources, The Comics Beat, The Comics Journal, The Comics Reporter, the LA Times, Newsarama, Publishers Weekly, and many more. Social Media Campaign: Our web and social presences are distinct and continuing to grow. We have a recently re-branded 2dcloud.com website that not only functions as a locus for our direct sales and artist and publisher information, but also has exclusive content to drive additional traffic to the site. In terms of our social presence, we are active on all major channels: Facebook (facebook.com/2DCLOUD with close to 800 likes), Twitter (@2dcloud just under 1,200 followers), Tumblr (2dcloud.tumblr.com, with just under 1,200 followers), and most recently, Instagram (instagram.com/2d.cloud) Artist Self-Promotion: In addition to our marketing and publicity efforts, our artists are also actively engaged on social media and in touring with fellow 2dcloud artists whose releases we've paired for each season. Tommi Parrish maintains a website where their past and present work is featured (tommipg.tumblr.com) and will be travelling with Sab Meynert and Jake Terrell in support of Perfect Hair.
