The short answer is: Maybe. Looking at the numbers, the situation is looking pretty bleak unless something changes soon. As of now, our sales have primarily been through Drivethru, which accounted for almost ten times more than both Big Geek Emporium and Lulu combined. That’s a significant difference.
But we haven’t lost hope just yet. We can still turn this around. The woke parasites over at Drivethru take 35% of the publisher’s profits This has resulted in our total profit being almost halved each month, and that’s quite a lot. As you know Big Geek Emporium takes a much smaller share. Drivethru has happily taken our money to sell our “problematic content” for almost a year, but now we can shift our focus to Big Geek Emporium and Lulu. If even half of our previous customers start buying from these two retailers, we can keep the Red Room alive and thriving.
We’ve considered creating our own store, but it doesn’t make much sense now. If people aren’t willing to switch from Drivethru to Big Geek Emporium, they’re unlikely to purchase from our website. So, we’re sticking with what we have and trying to promote even more than before.
If you want to help us keep the Red Room (and the entire Wretchedverse) alive, it’s quite simple. Just buy from one of our other retailers. All of our paper books are at Lulu.com, where the printing quality is significantly better than at Drivethru. The price is only slightly higher than at DTRPG, so you’re not really losing anything by purchasing hard copies from Lulu. All of our digital books are available at Big Geek Emporium at the same price they were on Drivethru, so there’s no reason not to buy from there.
But there are other ways to help us as well. If you’re feeling generous, you can donate to our Ko-Fi page to help us cover the expenses of maintaining our website and YouTube channel. However, we’d prefer to have you as customers rather than patrons (we don’t even have a Patreon account, we were also expelled from there for being very naughty people, but that’s beside the point now).
One of the most important ways you can help us is to spread the word about our products. Share our posts and videos on social media, leave reviews at Big Geek Emporium, and if you have a blog, podcast, or YouTube channel, please review our products. It may not seem like much, but it’ll make a world of difference to us.
Thank you for supporting the Red Room and the Wretchedverse.
