    I'm looking for tips to promote game apps on Play Store.

    I am posting to social media and a few forums but I would like more ideas. I don't want to go down the fake review route if possible I would like to promote this in the most natural way possible.

    I am new to apps and games so I don't have much of an idea about this so any advice would be appreciated.

    PS. I would consider paid advertising but I would prefer not to use adwords etc as I have lost money with campaigns on that type of advertising before.

    Either go viral on Reddit or get journalists to cover your app, or buy shit ton$$$ of ads.

    invest some money in your game in:
    -FB Ads, you can get cheap installs if you know how to optimize the process
    -in house ads, also a good and cheap way to get installs

    meanwhile you can try posting in IG, twitter, FB groups,

    Already doing twitter/FB, daughter is working on IG for me.

    I haven't really got a clue about facebook ads, whenever I have looked into them it seems that it will cost a small fortune. Guess I'll have to start researching how to set up and optimize the campaign for best (cheap) results.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
