    I am a game designer and I have hard time making money off my games. I have one on google play (not sure if I can post the link) and I have one other made in Unity which is not published yet anywhere. I can't post in the joint venture section so I am posting here. I am basically looking for someone who can promote games and split profit...

    No offence but such ventures doesnt make sense. You can quit it anytime you will start ranking and making profit.

    Well why would I quit with anyone after the success of one game? I am planning to work on more, if I cheat for the first game, I am on a loss...

    Hey Op,

    What is important here? The Game or hot to promote it? Do you think the flappy guy has anybody else to promote his game?

    Start with the basics. Make facebook page, twitter account and Youtube Chanel and start promoting your games. If people like them you will have success with them. You are the only who will be passionate enough the promote them right!

    Cheers

    I've heard some app devs having some success on YouTube. Your game might go viral there. The number of apps/games I've purchased after seeing 'em there. Just make sure to place a link in the vid/desc!

    I can help you promote it for your money with my method, but I don't want a JV with you. I've never tried it before since I don't have any apps, but I'm certain that you will get a de thousand downloads for ~$80!

    Easy and free way to promote it is this: go to youtube and search for channels that provide gameplay videos for android games. Your game will be promoted for free on most of them if you'll let them monetize the game (of course the game should be decent enough). Another way is going to forums of app developers and posting your game there, you should get an average of 100 views from a forum for what I have seen in those sections.

    Don't forget to build some sort of promotion method into the game itself, such as an incentive for sharing. This will ensure that whatever methods you use to begin promotion pay off much more.

    Actually he did. The game was on the market for a year before it went viral, because it got mentioned by pewdiepie, before that no one heard of it.

    Hello. Now, first you need nice presentation of your game. I believe you have one, right?

    Here is a few tips how to attract more attention to your game:

    1. Write reviews and ask bloggers, who run game sites to publish it, or even better - ask them to play and write an review on their own.

    2. Try writing in games forums as well as android forums, in order to announce your game and answer the questions that will be aksed.

    3. Make materials of your game - videos, powerpoint presentations, banners, pdf reviews and etc. and share them on sites like Youtube, Slideshare.

    4. Go social - create Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus pages of your game, spread the word there.

    5. Most important - get a web site for your games. Now you have two - I think that you need a we site to promote them there, with all the information needed.

    Well, you can do that and see the results, You will start receiving some traffic and getting some downloads as well. The earnings - try to reinvest them in paid traffic. And you are done. ;)
