This week’s sponsor are the wonderful people over at Universal Uclick. As you know, Universal runs GoComics – the largest comics portal in the world. They provide the digital home to the largest number of newspaper comics and a growing number of the most popular web comics on the web. With such a variety of features, GoComics has a sizable devoted and diverse readership that generates billions of page views each year – which in turn generates additional revenue for creators.
One thing I didn’t know until I started poking around today: GoComics has a very sizable social media footprint. Rounding up to the nearest thousand they have 59,000 followers on Twitter, 163,000 Friends (likers??) on Facebook, and 37,000 followers (pinners??) on Pinterest. That’s a lot of exposure for the features on GoComics. And let’s not forget their in-house blog that promotes their creators as well.
I can’t think of any other comic portal/publisher that comes close to those kinds of numbers. So check out Gocomics.
