    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone had any luck or some ideas with marketing their games/apps? I have been doing the usual social media campaigns on Facebook,Twitter, Instagram etc and trying to think of others ways of going about it.

    Thanks

    Constantly promote your game & site. I'm curious about what you do but there's no link that would let me see!

    I also suggest reaching out to influencers on social media, offer them the game so they can play and share with their audience. If you're not already you can work with an indie PR agency to send out information on your game to the press for more coverage. You want to cast a large net with marketing and PR.
