Have you started publishing your webtoon on LINE Webtoon Canva section but you’re wondering how to get more visibility to your Webtoon comic?
The answer I’ve found for myself is to share/post/publish my webtoon comic on other platforms because platforms build platforms.
You can utilize other social media algorithm within their platform to help get your webtoon panel page and links in front of more people.
It can be really easy to have your webtoon get buried within webtoon Canva’s discover section but the way to get Webtoon algorithm to notice you and start promoting your webtoon to other readers is by increasing the views and engagement of your webtoon.
Within webtoon’s platform you can increase your update schedule and increase engagement within the comment section of your or others webtoon.
For introverts like me that can be a little too much for our social battery to handle on top of that I can’t currently handle increasing my update schedule to more than 1 a month. I get burned out quickly so right now these two options aren’t really the best fit for me.
So I learned a few other simple ways both you and I can promote and increase the visibility of our webtoon without having to almost “spam” others comment section or get hit with artist block and burn out:
- -Promote on Pinterest:
Pinterest is one of the larger Image Search Engines and from my researches it’s being marked as one of the largest website traffic drivers in the world!
- -Promote on Tiktok:
Since TikTok demography is targeted at a younger audience this is like the perfect bedrock for us Webtoon Creators to use and market or Webtoon Comics because TikTok is already bringing in our target audience and all we need to do is post on there so they can see it.
- -Share on Multiple Webtoon Platforms:
There is a saying that platforms build platforms. A mistake that I’ve made in the past was thinking that it was enough to just post my webtoon on one webtoon platform but that meant I was leaving out a whole other audience that might not use that platform but they use a different platform. So don’t pigeon hole yourself like I did in the past and share your webtoon on more than one site!
Why should you promote your webtoon on other platforms?
Webtoon Comic Promoting on Pinterest
Image SEO is such a great tool for webtoon creators to use for promoting their webtoon! One of the reasons why I recommend Pinterest is from my own personal experience form the amount of growth I received with them.
Another interesting tidbit that I learned about Pinterest is that you have a greater percentage at going viral on Pinterest ( I believe it’s 80% compared to other social platforms)
I have pins that are receiving over 8k impressions and on top of that your pins are able to be repined so they have longevity and reach which will also increase the impressions which in turn can help increase views to my webtoon as long as I have it linked within that pin.
Webtoon Comic on Tiktok
One of the ways you can promote your webtoon with TikTok videos is sharing Work in Progress or show Webtoon Panel samples of your webtoon with music playing on top.
Publishing on Multiple Webtoon Platforms
There’s a reason why we shouldn’t put all of our eggs in one basket.
It helps to spread things out wide and that also applies with spreading and publishing your webtoon on other sites to help get more views to your webtoon.
Different webtoon platform pulls their own individual audience so you’ll be missing out on this opportunity to get more views to your webtoon if you don’t post your webtoon on other platforms.
