How We Helped

Loft Productions provided services for the complete project cycle for the ComicsForHire.com web site. Loft Productions designed and developed all the code, customized graphics, as well as marketed and managed this project. Loft Productions implemented it's user profile management interface, search engine, as well as it's unique micro payment point system. This payments system allowed comedians to purchase points in bulk and use them for pre-qualified leads as they were entered into the site. Email notifications were sent of new lead availability and the site's comedians could review basic details and decide if they wanted to "purchase" the contact information to let the venue know of their availability.
