Need some help marketing a "Browser RPG Game"

Discussion in 'General Marketing' started by WeedGrinch, Aug 9, 2009.

    I've been coding a 2d rpg browser game for a while now, and I'm about to release it.

    The ideas I have for marketing right now are:
    Toplists/Directories
    Link Trades
    Reward players for referrals
    SEMrush
    Any suggestions on how to pull users in?

    Rep+ for all replies.

    Thanks.

    It's a 2d RPG game, combat, woodcutting, etc...

    it's hosted on my local box right now, and my ISP blocks incomming connections on port 80, so i'm the only1 who can view it.

    The things you have listed are all good ideals.

    when you go public, let me know and I'll put a review of your game on my gaming blog.

    also when your game is public I would go on to gaming forums to promote your game.

    same I been doing this for a while and the best bet start up you have listed.

    besides purchasing ads on gaming related sites.

    also submit a new post at www.game-script.net
    and news / review at www.topmorpg.com

    Ill approve them and get it listed for you

    Toplists is great for traffic. It converts.

    As does SEO. And it's not that competitive. And it wasn;t when I ran a game.
