Want to level up your video game company?
You love games, right? Maybe you’ve even made a few yourself! But now that you want to take your game company to the next level, how do you get there?
It can be tough for an indie developer to compete with the big guys in the industry.
Luckily, we have some tips and tricks for leveling up your indie studio!
1. Define Your Niche
If you produce a product that is just like everyone else’s, it will be hard to stand out in the crowd. Taking time to understand what makes your company special and how it differs from others is one of the most important steps you can take.
Once you have defined your niche, use every tool at hand to make sure people know about it. If yours is a gaming news website, for example, make sure relevant audiences are aware of the quality content you are putting out.
2. Reach Out to the Right Audience By Using the Proper Channels
Building an email list, blogging on relevant websites, and posting your content across social media are just some of the many ways you can reach out to your target audience.
You should also make use of Facebook Ads targeted towards specific demographics.
3. Test Everything
As an indie company, every penny counts. This means that testing out new marketing strategies is crucial for staying ahead in a cut-throat video game industry.
By running A/B tests on various projects you can discover which approach generates the most revenue or discussion with minimal cost.
4. Make Your Site Stand Out From the Crowd
When it comes to trying to reach a target audience online, then you have a lot of video game companies fighting for their attention. In this battle for supremacy, standing out from the crowd is crucial.
And this applies just as much to your website as it does any other marketing initiative you employ!
A good starting point is thinking about how ‘sticky’ your content can be e.g. what kind of design will grab people’s attention long enough so that they read your content and remember your brand for the future?
5. Use Cross-Promotions to Build Momentum
Cross-promotions can be huge for your gaming business. Taking the time to work out how best to use collaborations with other indie game companies can have great benefits when trying to grow your own company and can boost game sales.
For example, if you work together with another similar company and each makes games about medieval times, you could link your games to one another and provide a seamless experience for the player.
