As such, he’s put together a comprehensive marketing plan, which he’s going to share with us.
Okay, now I’m going to open up the ComixLaunch Course archive and share a few snippets from the Office Hours Q&A session that took place with the pilot group in Jan of this year.
In this first clip, I’m going to talk about what to do when you’ve crunched the numbers and realize your goal is likely higher than what you can reasonably raise.
Okay, in this second clip, I’m going to address a few things I noticed about Joshua Janes’ 15 Minute KS plan.
If you’ve been following the ComixLaunch Game Plan, I shared a bit about Josh and his 15 minute plan, which he sketched out in rough form quickly, and then, throughout the course and afterward executed brilliantly, successfully funding fulfilling his project.
I’ve included links to Josh’s original plan, and to his successful KS in the show notes… great book, great artist, check him out.
In a moment, I’m going to give you today’s ComixLauncher, but first, we need to thank our sponsor…
