Your page is very interesting, and your art great. I would put the banner in my page, if yours weren't hosted by AOL

What's wrong with some of my pages being on AOL's servers?

I saw the "banner" topic and thought it might be fun to share this link:

Seemed appropriate to the web commerce/micropayment ideal.

DON when I saw your banner I came with a great idea to make money of web comics. Do a long format detective or mystery story, and when there are only a few pages left put up a banner like that except with a higher price. In effect holding the ending hostage.

Of course, it would ruin the flow of the story and your readers would hate you for it. So maybe it's not such a good idea after all. Just thought it was funny.

I don't think that's neccesarily true.
I feel that if you can pull customers in by saying "lookit the purty pictures" or "isn't this story cool?" you'd have a better chance of building credibility in charging them money.

I'm working on a project now wherein the first few pages of the story are free, the next few cost a quarter, and the next few, and the next, etc. until the extra large final chapter which will cost a little more -- the final amount paid for the entire story should be around $5 or $6 if purchased in pieces.

Readers will also have the option to order the story in it's entirety for a discounted price.

I feel offering the story in pay-for-pieces allows the audience to "buy until their bored" -- if I lose their attention, I lose their income.

The project is still being developed (first draft complete, revisions and art being prepared now) and I expect to roll it out sometime in the fall (it's a seasonal story.)

I'd love to hear from anyone else who may have used a similar strategy, or has ideas on how this might be made more successful. Poking holes in the concept is absolutely allowed -- if I know its weaknesses, I can make it stronger.
