The age of video games
On one side, technological advancement has made game development easier than ever before and in 2014, more than 750 video games were being published EVERY DAY just for mobile. This already reveals the backside of the sword: Competition. There has never been more competition for a video game than ever before. So how to make sure that your video game stands out from the masses? By gaining Attention.
Attention is key
To be successful with your video game marketing strategy, make sure that you:
1. Reach potential players with your game.
2. Present your game in a way that will make them like it.
3. Make them become fans of your game.
Classical advertising methods like Google Adwords may have success with (1) but most of the time fail tremendously in (2) and (3), as it is extremely difficult for the viewer to build a personal connection out of such static and out of context advertisements. Furthermore, Google has put high user acquisition costs on their service when it comes to games and especially if you are an indie game developer, you may want to invest your money more wisely.
But fortunately, there is another way to drive relevant attention to your game: Connecting to influencers who present your game to their audience can yield great rewards.
Win fans for your video game
Especially YouTube has a great contingent of sophisticated players. Finding and connecting to the right YouTubers who are willing to present your game on their YouTube channel can help your game make the jump from being a forgotten treasure that is lost in the Bermuda Triangle to being world famous like the Mona Lisa.
Of course, reaching out to each YouTuber individually and finding the right ones who are actually willing to present your game on their YouTube channel is a very time consuming effort and it is quite of a hustle to manage all the communication. In fact, we developed a much easier and more effective way for you as a game developer to drive attention from YouTube to your game.
