Broken Frontier Offers Small Press and Independent Creators Free Advertising

I recently received the following press release via the ICAA. The website Broken Frontier will be running a promotion aimed at small press and independent creators. So, if you fall into one of those two categories, this may be an item of interest.

Broken Frontier Offers Small Press and Independent Creators Free Advertising

Anyone who has made an attempt at publishing a comic – or any sequential story for that matter – knows how hard it is to break into the industry and put your name, and more importantly, your creation on the map. Every small company and independent creator knows that even though you have poured your heart and soul into creating the best book you possibly can, getting your work noticed by the masses is a daunting task when facing the advertising and marketing strategies of the large press competitors.

Popular online comic book website, Broken Frontier wants to help small press and independent creators looking to find their niche in today’s crowded comics market, and in the hearts of fans worldwide, by launching its GET NOTICED! Campaign for the second consecutive year.

Every publisher who earned less than 1% market share at any point during 2004, and every self-publishing/independent creator or creative team is given the opportunity to promote their books at Broken Frontier for free!! The program began on Wednesday December 8 and will run all the way through February 8, 2005.
