One of the areas in my career I’ve been working on quite a bit is BizComics.
As you may know, BizComics was actually launched in June of 2015. However, just recently, we’ve relaunched it. Why? It needed it. The original site didn’t have really any content to go visit (well, just not a super-ton of content). It explained what we do (which, if you don’t know, you should just go visit the site instead of me explaining it all here). It had some cartoons, but not anything to keep anyone THAT interested. If we had a way of serving free coffee there, that would’ve been interesting. Unfortunately at the time, we did not (and sorry – still don’t).
Basically, we needed a better way of getting the message out of what we do. And have a bit more fun on our end while we’re at it.
What we do though has remained the same since the start. Just the site and content to go with it has changed.
With the relaunch, a few exciting new things have been happening in the neighborhood.
Above: Here’s an example. The latest BizComic cartoon.
Also, there is a new quarterly graphic novel series, Max Impact: Marketing Detective. It’s an ongoing series about Max trying to solve marketing problems. Definitely more exciting than the latest Batman v Superman movie. No, really. It’s a fresh and engaging feature I think you’ll enjoy.
As a cartoonist, I love just about every thing about the craft. I’ve always compared cartooning to acting: I take on many roles. I work on daily gags, graphic novels, stupidity for MAD and – along with it all – I really have a passion for using cartoons for marketing. They ARE the best marketing material out there. (That’s why it kills me when cartoons get axed from publications. Don’t they realize the cartoons are often the most read part of it? It’s a proven stat. Ask the NewYorker.)
And I always mention to companies I work with and potential clients, when was the last time you DIDN’T pay attention to a cartoon on your news feed? (The answer, when answered honestly, is typically that you always do.)
So, anyway, I’m not trying to make a pitch here about BizComics, but it has been a big area of focus recently and I hope you check out the new features (why, just click here). I’ve been working hard with the coolest marketing team out there and we’ve really come a long ways since our initial launch over a year ago.
I’m thrilled to keep growing this bizmonster.
