How to start marketing?

Posted 02 July 2012 - 05:07 AM

I am making a little game with a team of people and I need to know how I could get our name, or at least the name of our software out there. It's just a little 2D game but...
I am working on a sort of tech demo but I have no idea where to advertise. We have a blog and a facebook page that is not functional yet.
If you have any advice it would be greatly appreciated.

First it would be to make those two things functional. A youtube account would also be great.. and if that's all working (and the game has a functional demo or at least screen shots) it might not hurt chatting up industry specific forums.

Maybe I just haven't had my coffee yet, but how is this a software development question?

First in order to market something you need to have some of the something ready to market. Images of the item in question with soon to come captions are always great. I would use youtube for snippets of the video and blogs, facebook for the rest until you are in beta form. After a while if you get enough response you can venture out to bigger marketing stratagies. My wife is in advertising so I know a thing or two about the crap.

You need to create a video of your Application Demo and submit it on YouTube. Share this you Tube link in to your Facebook page and create one application page on Facebook.
