JULY 11, 2022, (SEATTLE, WA) — Thanks to the creator-first initiative, GlobalComix is excited to announce its all-time high enrollment. Since the beginning of 2022, the digital library has grown to over 12.5k published books, with more than 110 publishers and over 1k creators publishing content, with over 2,000 books and over 50k pages uploaded in June alone. The GlobalComix community is the most engaged it’s ever been, with unique site visits over double that of any other month in the platform’s history, with readership at 50%+ growth.
Not only has membership increased, but also new “Follows” have surged by 800%, stemmed from productive and positive social media engagement with both creators and readers; reinforcing GlobalComix’s commitment to building an inclusive community. It is this creator-first initiative, through collaborative, informative and open discussions and apt troubleshooting, that has caused GlobalComix’s surging success.
“Putting creators first is one of our core pillars, so to see the incredible response through the first six months of 2022 is humbling,” said Christopher Carter, CEO & Founder of GlobalComix. “We are only as successful as our creators, so we will continue to build GlobalComix as a place that welcomes anyone, from anywhere, to share their passion with the world.” Carter continued, “our next big focus is to continue and increase initiatives that pull in readership across the entire spectrum of comic fans so that creators and publishers expand their readership significantly.”
“From the beginning our goal has always been to serve two unique communities – readers and creators – and help bridge the gap between them,” said Kevin Van Ness, Director of Community at GlobalComix. “By creating a support structure where we are actively engaged in discussions with our community, it enables us to be more than just a digital comics platform. It’s a place where creators can feel appreciated and celebrated.”
