At the end of this month, my husband and I will be attending the Emerald City Comicon. We are having a booth to promote Comics Fairplay. It is my second year having a booth there, and we will have our wonderful friend Brian there to help us.
My question is this: How would you go about best promoting a blog at a comic book show? The only product I have is my blog, which at this point is not a profit center. I have bumper stickers and a lovely banner. I also have samples of my blog entries in a three ring binder.
Last year we did a raffle for H.E.R.O. Initiative. This year there is already a separate booth for just that very purpose. How do I make things interesting and avoid the inevitable "so what do you make" question?
One idea I had was to have a summit of sorts for "Bloggers Northwest" where all my fellow bloggers would feel free to come by the booth and share ideas. Another is to have some kind of round table discussion.
What kind of promotional materials would work best? I really want to have fun with this so I would really appreciate any ideas. As the only blogger "exhibiting", what can I do to increase awareness?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
