Tapastic PPP for Comic Artists!

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 19, 2013, 5:49 PM






Hey guys! :D It was great meeting everyone in San Francisco last weekend!

In other news, there's a great new program for comic artists that I would like to share. It's part of  Tapastic's Primetime Publishing Program (PPP)  that pays comic artists based on the amount of page views they generate. If you are a comic artist, then you can make some extra money doing what you love. If you're not a comic artist, you can still check out all the cool webcomics on Tapastic.com and help support the artists that way :)

Take care! :hug:

Thanks for the link! I'm a comic artist, actually a beginner. And i'm too young to have a sort of business. But thanks anyway, I'll be inspired from those comics. I also love your comics and I hope i'll be like you when i grew older.

What happens after the effective period though? We stop getting paid after that?

I think they will only reduce the price rate for page view after the promotion period.

I read it from here>>> [link]

How Legit are they? I've heard this is the third version of the site, and the first two were taken down by artists who got taken advantage of. Also, in the fine print, there's a clause that says if we use them they own anything we publish through them in perpetuation. Even though they say we own all our stuff. So, I'm a little nervous about them, until I hear more ^_^;;

We are in the process of updating our Terms and Conditions - as all things involving lawyers, it takes time to review and stuff.
If you feel still nervous, feel free to opt out.

I'm more following the other half of my studio who is more nervous than I am, but he and the Comic Rocket team read it through, and that's what it read like to them. That part may want some rewording, b/c it sounds a bit scary ^_^ Hopefully, that'll get edited so that the artists retain sole publishing rights. Thanks for the update!

Umm...

"Once accepted, a Primetime Publisher will not only have a spot on our Release Schedule, but also be able to earn up to $10,000 a month during our three month promotional period (Feb 1, 2013 to April 30, 2013.)"

That doesn't sound like a great deal to me, TBH. Only three months to redirect your traffic there? And even then, according to their price sheet, you'd have to bring in 250,000 hits to get the $10,000. Besides that, Tapastic uses infinite scrolling, so basically every chapter would count for one pageview. So if you have five chapters, that's five pageviews per unique visitor... or roughly 50,000 uniques. I'm not sure about you, but if I was getting 50,000 uniques a month, I'd be able to make a good amount of cash year-round managing my own site.

The terms and conditions for the PPP were also sketchy, last I checked.

Just be careful, guys. And make sure to read EVERYTHING before you sign up.
