Importance of Advertising
This is very valuable info, and so appreciated! Making the game comes naturally to me in many ways, this does not, but I better understand why I need to learn it. Thank you
when you have no money…. ;(
Please make more videos about these specific marketing
Yea this was great and I would definitely like more content like this.
There are two problems, number one is that entertainment and technology work through mental trends. One strategy may work today and then tomorrow it completely doesn't work. People catch on to any kind of 'tricks' you're trying to throw their way. The second is reputation, building a reputation as you've stated in your other videos is extremely important before you actually get to selling anything. For many indie game developers that are very serious finding a reputable publisher that would partner with them is the most viable means of business.
Thanks buddy, really helpful , I am about to release a game at the end of the month, this will help a lot
Oh my god why don't the actual developers watch this?
I. LOVE. IT💙
thanks for the ad tips Tim. It's been hard trying to figure out the marketing side of game development, so more of these vids are perfect. Does anyone know how much building or bus advertisement costs? I saw a billboard of Battle Chef Brigade in Chicago that had me watching a Total Biscuit review on it later (effective marketing😉)!
I really like this video in particular, because I know how to code in php but i never saw the benefits of making a smart use for marketing, showing different pages, running some kinds of metrics. Im programing "Super Retro Dogs" and I love your marketing videos!!! I'm in indiedb https://www.indiedb.com/games/super-retro-dogs
Congrats from Argentina!
This is brilliant, thank you.
Made perfect sense to me. 😊
Please, make more videos like this one! Great content!
I learned a lot, thank you
my mind = blown
yeah tim i want more videos on this please it is really helpfull…
Hey Tim, about A/B landing page testing, I looked into it and figured that you actually have to spend a fortune in advertising to drive enough people to the landing page in order to get statistically relevant test results. Add to that the $100+ a month for Unbounce or Instapage. It just seems like a losing proposition for a $5 to $15 indie game. It would be interesting if you could make a video detailing the process using realistic cost per clicks and ad and landing page conversion rates.
This is a very important video and Marketing and Building audience! This is what I wanted to know! Thanks man! More videos on these topic is a definite welcome! WE ARE SOLD
i need to watch this again.
A few months ago I tried a couple of Teespring campaigns that failed. Now I know I didn't waste my time because I felt familiar with all that the stuff you discussed, even Pixel. Failures do make for great learning experience.
this is gold, you have a new subscriber…i think this video has a good conversion rate
Great video, I thing making more of these "in depth / hands on" videos really complements the rest of your marketing videos which are much more "high level"
This is not advanced at all. Keep up the good work
Great video. Please do more!
Have you tried running Facebook ads for paid games before? Everything you said in the video is true, but conversion rates for free mobile games tend to be a lot higher than for paid Steam games. From my experience, cold selling software/e-products is very difficult on Facebook, and achieving conversions which result in ROI higher than 1 is even harder. It was my first time spending money on Facebook ads, so there are of course things that I could have done better when trying to sell my online course. Any tips on running ads for paid Steam games in particular would be greatly appreciated 🙂 And one more thing, would you recommend sending the leads directly to the steam/download page or should they always go through a landing page first?
Best video yet Tim, this nailed it!!! Would like to see more of this…
Another amazing eye openner video thanks boss tim
Great vid Tim! Yes please do more of this!
This is great. Please make more videos about these specific marketing and advertising techniques. Very interesting!
Just an idea, maybe making a video about advertising to your target audience to improve convergion rate
I have seen alot of marketing videos but none that helped me understand like this one, might not be for a beginner but for someone that has a little experience in marketing then it's very good information
very informative video, I'll be coming back to see it again once I get to actually launch a game, baby steps first. I would love to have a marketing problem, it's much better then getting a game to even launch problem.
Hi Tim, do you ever think about doing video segments on game design reviews?
Great video. Am interested also in other ad networks and what works with running ads in your game too.
This is one of the best insider secret videos of yours.. just loved it. Money printing machine is all I want.. gotta make one myself. 🙂 Thanks a lot…
Advertising works you just gotta work it
