I have recently started my web comics which deals with various personal and societal issues in the life of two guys working for MNCs in Inida, here is a sample.
I do boost my posts from FB once in a week and get a jump in the number of shares of that post but it does not usually translate to a corresponding jump in pageviews/new users. Also my organic reach for posts has fallen drastically(almost 90%) since i first boosted my posts. I need your guidance on the following
1) Effective means other than FB for promoting such content (web comic)
2) Any website or app which features such comics and how to contact them
3) A way of FB promotion which does not effect the organic reach of my posts.
TIA for your suggestions
Inksedge is a design oriented e-commerce company focused on the Indian market. We offer high quality event stationery (holiday cards, announcements and invitations) that is easy to personalize and share. Please see http://www.inksedge.com
E-commerce in India is on a growth tear. In 2012, the total ecommerce market was estimated at $2 Billion; by 2020 it is projected to be $50 Billion+. A natural outgrowth of strong Internet user growth is segmentation into vertical markets. Just like most people don’t buy clothes from a general goods store offline, savvy internet users seek branded, consistent experiences for design oriented categories. Event stationery in India is a $1B offline segment today, mostly fragmented and sorely lacking good design. We fix both issues and are seeing strong demand from people seeking a sophisticated medium to express their sense of style.
Our core customer is the Indian woman who celebrates everyday life and takes pride in making events special by doing them well. We are based in CA and in Bangalore, venture funded by NEA and others, and looking to expand our team.
