The Franks and Beans media push is go! We’ve got an ad in the recently printed, recently released and recently mailed-to-me sixth issue of The Magic Bullet, a Washington, DC-based large format comic newspaper. The Magic Bullet is a semi-annual publication that is given away absolutely free to thousands of eager readers, and also perhaps to crazy people who want to make hats out of it. Here’s the cover!
You may, of course, be wondering just what demographic Franks and Beans was trying to reach by advertising in a DC metro-area free comic newspaper, but this is the result of some pretty heavy market research. And also I published a one-page comic in it, titled “The Naked Man at the Edge of Time”:
And then, you know, things just kind of came together.
You also might be asking if this ad buy has had any effect on the site’s traffic. Well, not that it’s any of your business, and it’s kind of rude for you to inquire into such structurally sensitive matters, but as a matter of fact, there has been a slight bump in the numbers in the last few weeks. This might be a result of the ad, or it might just means that Franks and Beans is slowly working its way into the zeitgeist and the ad was completely unnecessary. But there it is, for all to see. It’s not the only mention that F&B is getting in a publication, as it turns out. I’d tell you about that now, but I can totally just make a brand new post about that in a couple days and feel good about updating the site more than once a damn month. And what fun that will be!
