Alright here we go
Looking for oasis has 600+ subs but like who's line says the subs don't matter unless your a dom- wait-..
So the biggest thing to keep in mind is that any tips and tricks listen here is doomed to change. What I mean by this is simply that I have been on this website for 5+ years now and have done multiple comics over that time. The audience has changed. The algorithm has changed. The "big time" creators have changed. They will continue to do so.
I don't think this is a bad thing but it is something to consider. Back in the olden days people came here for gag a days, then BL, then basic "vanilla" romance. Tho you might not have a lot of subs now you could potentially have some at a later date. My first comic got to 100 subs in less than a month because I guess D&D was big and then it immediately died. It's just weird shit that happens and all you can really do is ride the wave sometimes.
That being said some tips:
Cross promotion is key - what I mean by this isn't "promoting in other places will make you more popular on tapas" the idea is to promote everywhere and have mirror sites to figure out what site works best for you. Right now romance and drama is very popular on tapas but it might not be that way for long so having other options is good. On the flip side of that tapas isn't big on other genres, horror dosnt get a lot of love and fantasy is over saturated however it is possible that by posting on tapas you will be able to find the tapas audience that is thirsty for that content.
That leads into the lean into you niche that a lot of people already hit on. Altho you might not be the most popular comic on tapas you could find people thirsty for your kind of content and will find your main site or support you on Patreon which can ultimately do more for your confidence then having 1000 subs.
Finding your niche if you have to ask what your niche is you really need to ask what your comic is about. Why are you writing your comic. Everyone has a "I wish we had more of this" or "I wanna try a love story" before making our comics. If you think we need more enemies to friend to lover to enemies again stories then that's what your leaning into. The relationship of these people and how it's violently toxic but damnit the readers still enjoy it!! Don't be afraid of your own creation.
Important tips for the slow burn friends out there
Slow burn tends to feel bad on every platform because a lot of people are here to get to the "kissing" part of the story. But a lot of slow burn people prob aren't gonna get to that "kissing" scene till chapter 34. This can also be for action comics if your trying for a very slow going story where your "super hero" dosnt get his powers till chapter 13 because it's about how he dealt with problems while he was mortal that defines what he dose while he's powerful. That's ok! You keep on with your slow burns and remember that bingers are here for you.
@darthmongoose pointed out that they try to have >something< every update which is a good meathod! But things to remember about this meathod is that it can become very... Uh... Thor love and thunder if you just try to have "jokes" every update. Or very fifty shades if you try to have "reveals" every update. For slow burn comics your always gonna have those quite moments of characters absorbing information and silent panels of set up and such. This is ok. Remember that even tho we're working on a cerialised format, once you get enough pages out your bingers are going to want that "slow burn" flow to be elegant and purposeful.
