    My formula currently is $$$$

    It is going to cost you about $2 a download and you may need 10,000 + downloads to get your game to go viral. :)

    Generally, when it comes to marketing at least at the beginning when you are trying to get your unknown app discovered you are going to have to spend some money. The cheapest way to do so is usually forums like these and/or sending email to reviewers and trying to get a game review published.

    Of course I have spent some money to make game reviews and videos. What's more, I submit my games to some games market, and bought some game banners! But it didn't take many users. So I want to try some free methods, hope you can tell me if you know. A s to forum, if I post my game in the free game forum, the admin always banned me. So I hope if someone can do the promotion for me, I will pay for it!

    Let us know if you find a way that does not require money. :)

    The admin think I am the spammer, they don't allow me to promote my games which is not related to their forum.

    Sorry I don't add people I don't know in person.

    The people on these forums are very welcome of developers posting games. I find it unlikely they banned you for simply posting your game unless your game is a scam.

    You can add me to your skype if you like. Not into the only the people I know are on my skype. I use it for business and that means anyone here can get on it if they like.

    my skype is LajoCymbalski:)
