Golden Comics welcomes forward minded publishers seeking a new way to gain interest from their readership, more leverage for their sales representatives and greater value to their publications.
Our mission is to create original adventure stories in a comics universe based on real Golden Age characters that are public domain. Each story will be a "done in one", a short story that will be followed with a word game segment related to the comic. Educational 'tie-ins' include quizzes, crossword puzzles, word scrambles, trivia, essay contests, matching, true or false, etcetera. Publishers can contact their area schools to coordinate promoting school events or sell ads to local businesses that have products that target the comics readership.
|GOLDEN COMICS is comprised of 3 traditional comic book pages and one page of word games related to the comics story. Laid out in the diagram at the right, a typical newspaper will have 2 columns of advertisement space on both sides of the comics for targeted advertisements. These ads will get repeated views both because of placement and because the comics are collectible. This format can be hung up as a poster for even more marketing mileage. The ad space here is ideal for coupon cut-outs.|
The folded view of the comics page shows the great amount of value you get for your page real estate. The back of the comics page can be used for a standard layout of articles with ads, or as a full page jacket on one or both sides. This form of advertising can be reserved for special promotions and annual events.
Publishers may want to use the insert as a centerfold or as the centerfold insert for a specific section of their paper or magazine, such as the entertainment, community or education section. The back of the comics insert can have key articles and advertisements targeting the demographic you are attracting with our comics insert.
| An optimal use of the comics page format is as a JACKET for your magazine or newspaper. This is where you can sell a full page ad on the back of the comics page. Your readers will see the bonus value of the comics jacket and your advertisers will enjoy the exposure and multiple views from being attached to the comics page in a jacket format. |
HOW GOLDEN COMICS WORK FOR YOU -
As the comics are serialized stories, you will attract readers to come back to this comics insert with each time you publish. With a regular readership, you have greater marketing value that your sales people can use to leverage selling ad space.
When you purchase a limited series of GOLDEN COMICS, you run the comics page consecutively. These weekly or monthly comics ( depending on your print schedule ) allow advertisers to run timed promotions where they announce upcoming events and then post coupons or special offers in ad space of the comics pages printed in the following publication.
Answer Keys are pages with answers to the word games. These are normally posted here at this site but you can also have them printed in your paper or at your website. Most publishers prefer to have the Answer Keys published at their website because it drives traffic to their site where they can sell additional advertisements and/ or run other promotions at this area.
