Comic Blogging: A different expression…
Saturday, July 21, 2007
As kids we have always been fond of comic strips. As adults we are still fond of them. Its easy to gear up imagination and present a point using comic strips. You can make sticky marketing materials. It makes them an interesting and witty deal.
When we talk about viral marketing, your brand would be popular if you project it. Both online and offline, companies have focused on using the little cartoon characters to bring them more consumers.
Been to Blaugh? This is one way to make a statement using comic strips. Blaugh is famous for what it does- hiding their remarks on companies and services under the veil of humor. It gives you thinking material from time to time and still keeps your interest.
At ToonDoo- You do have Ideas but you think producing strips will take in a lot of sketching and stuff. Think again. At Toondoo you can just have it done really easy. The above strip as you might have well noticed is made using Toondoo. It’s a really simple task. They provide you backgrounds, characters, props, you just have to customize them according to your need. It provides you a flash interface and all you have to do is drag and drop on the canvas. Add speech bubbles to make your characters speak. You can upload your own pictures and have fun with them.
At QuickToon- This service is in the beta stage and provides you with similar abilities as ToonDoo but with a lot less options, and you cannot upload your own pictures. But again the choice is yours and whichever you find it easier to work with.
At Mai’Nada ComicSketcher- If you are good at mouse handling(read as Sketching online) you can go in for this service. It lets you draw online and the good part is you can obviously let your imagination go wild and haywire. With comic strips you got to.
Al these services will let you embed the strips in your blogs and share them with your friends.
Other Services you can check out are- StripGenerator and StripCreator
So bloggers get there and get creative. Unleash the child within you.
