How to Sell at Conventions with Madeleine Holly-Rosing, Gwendolyn Dreyer, Daniel De Sosa, and Mike Wellman
This week we have another live show from Long Beach Comic Expo. This is our last live panel from that show, and it was an awesome one, especially if you ever wanted to learn how to sell at conventions. Our awesome panelists are some of the best I know at selling at conventions, and I brought them all together to show how their styles are different, and how you can be successful as an artist, writer, or even editor.
Here’s a description of the panel, right from the program guide:
It’s incredibly expensive to exhibit at a show. Not only are there table fees involved, but you have to pay for products and marketing materials among many other expenses. Most creators go into their first exhibiting experience blind and end up losing a lot of money. Don’t let that happen to you. Join moderator Russell Nohelty (Ichabod Jones: Monster Hunter) as he talks with a panel of experienced con veterans including Mike Wellman (Guns A’ Blazin’), Gwendolyn Dreyer (Monster Elementary), Madeleine Holly-Rosing (Boston Metaphysical Society) and Daniel De Sosa (Purrvana) as they give you their best tips to make money at conventions and make sure you are profitable from day one.
Most of these awesome creators have been on the show before. You can catch Gwendolyn Dreyer’s of my show here, and listen to her talking about building an audience from scratch here. You can listen to Madeleine talking about Kickstarter here, building an audience here, and on her own spotlight episode here. You can hear Mike and I debate Kickstarter vs. self-funding comics here and here. The only person who hasn’t been on the show at all is Daniel, but I can assure you he is a con selling rock star.
