Well this is potentially very exciting for me.
As my channels have grown they have spurred on my love and hobbies so much and quite simply I feel so blessed people even care about what I do or enjoy. However there is one downside. As with most things in life, nothing is free.
I spend on average £40 per week buying comics. That's £173 a month, just over £2000 per year!
Granted, I would have bought some of these comics anyway but I certainly wouldn't buy all of them. I also have to take a whole day off, as reading, researching, filming and editing can have be busy for over 12 hours sometimes so I have to pay for staff to run the shop.
Driving to all these conventions and awesome places is quite frankly wonderful, but as always, depending on the distance and event, it can cost quite a lot of money.
My shop doesn't make enough to support all of these frequent and increasing hobbies and YouTube is certainly a long way off from paying for even a comic a week!
However, this has never made me resent or dislike what I do, its a labour of love and I do it because it quite simply makes my life richer. I am not going to sit here and say I cant do this unless I get more money, but we all know that one day my finances may dictate how I live my life more tightly. So, I constantly try to come up with new and (hopefully good) ideas to help fund my lifestyle.
One way I thought of doing this is by mixing my love of photography and YouTube together. Taking pictures on my days out and then selling the prints of them. I know I am no professional photographer, nor am I famous enough to justify charging £10-15 for just a printed photograph like well known cosplayers do. With all this in mind I decided to sell prints with additional perks!
All 8x10 prints on sale will come with the optional packs which are :-
Sponsor Pack - £15
Also with the print you will receive :
- A hand written thank you letter
- You will be made a sponsor on our blog for 1 month.
- Your name will be credited in the description of the upcoming weekly comic review video.
Support Pack - £10
Also With the print you also get :
- A thank you card
- Your name will be credited in the description of the upcoming Weekly comic review Video.
Print Only - £6
You get the print... duh.
Also, Anyone who purchases a sponsor pack or support pack will go into a monthly draw to win loads of goodies!
These are the perks that I thought of, however if you can think of something that would make you more tempted to buy a package deal please tell me!
Please understand that I am not asking for your money, but trying to earn it.If you do not like the perks I offer or the prints I'm selling, please do not think I will hate you and remember it for all eternity! If I do not sell these prints, that's because I am doing something wrong, not you!
All prints will be sold with FREE P&P so there are no hidden fees once you've purchased your item also.
Thank you so much for taking the time out to read this. I am very excited about it all :)
