Free Advertising

Wasn't sure where to put this topic.

I was wondering what you game owners have found the best way of advertising is?

Obviously I've put my site onto all the voting sites, but at the moment I've got about 10 users, that i haven't personally told to sign up. The game is only 2 weeks old, but i would like to see at least 100/200 members within 2-3 weeks.

I have absolutely no money to spend on this, so i was also wondering if any game owners were interested in banner sharing, or likewise?

At the moment i can see why it doesn't look very appealing, but when we get more members, then it should even out. If you like we good just do it for a month or so, and see how it works out?

Even if it was just a little link on the menu bar saying: affiliated sites (or something) then your URL

What do you think?

Re: Free Advertising

 

I believe the best advertising is word of mouth, Or rather word of text as we are on the internet ;)

Give the players something great and they will advertise for you so they get better game play from an increase in players to interact with

Aint that truth. :) A lot of people just dont get interested in games unless they have friends who keep them interested.

Re: Free Advertising

make a file called freinds.php (can be changed)

place the following in it

<html>

<head>

<title>Freinds</title>

<style>

body { font-family:helvetica, arial, geneva, sans-serif;font-size:12;color: black;

scrollbar-base-color: #506560;

scrollbar-arrow-color: #F3960B;

scrollbar-DarkShadow-Color: #000000; }

a:visited,a:active,a:hover,a:link { color: black;text-decoration: none; }

table,tr,td { font-family:helvetica, arial, geneva, sans-serif;font-size: 12; }

img { border:none; }

textarea { font-family:helvetica, arial, geneva, sans-serif;font-size:12;color: black; }

</style>

</head>

<center><font color=red size=+2>Freinds of Your game.

There game name</f<img src=bargreen.gif width=100 height=10><img src=barred.gif width=0 height=10></td>ont></center>

then add a link somewhere

for example open header.php

find <img src=bargreen.gif width=100 height=10><img src=barred.gif width=0 height=10></td>

then add along side it </tr></table></div><hr><center><u><font color=#E6E6FA>View YOUR GAME NAME freinds</u></font></center>

 

so u would end up with

<img src=bargreen.gif width=100 height=10><img src=barred.gif width=0 height=10></td></tr></table></div><hr><center><u><font color=#E6E6FA>View YOUR GAME NAME freinds</u></font></center>

 

realy simple but does the job :-)

or make it join in with your game:

 

<?php
/*-----------------------------------------------------
-- Fallen-Lands v1.0 BETA

-- Copyright held 2005 by Dabomstew
-- INDEX.php
-----------------------------------------------------*/
session_start();
require "global_func.php";
if($_SESSION['loggedin']==0) { header("Location: login.php");exit; }
$userid=$_SESSION['userid'];
require "header.php";
$h = new headers;
$h->startheaders();
include "mysql.php";
global $c;
$is=mysql_query("SELECT u.*,us.* FROM users u LEFT JOIN userstats us ON u.userid=us.userid WHERE u.userid=$userid",$c) or die(mysql_error());
$ir=mysql_fetch_array($is);
check_level();
$fm=money_formatter($ir['money']);
$cm=money_formatter($ir['crystals'],'');
$lv=date('F j, Y, g:i a',$ir['laston']);
$h->userdata($ir,$lv,$fm,$cm);
$h->menuarea();
print "<center>
<table width='621' border='1'>
 <tr>
   <td width='97'>Site Name </td>
   <td width='235'>Site Link </td>
   <td width='267'>Site Description</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
   <td>Criminal Existence</td>
   <td>[url='www.criminalexistence.com/forum']HERE[/url]</td>
   <td>Meet experienced coders, Get help, Give Help!</td>
 </tr>
 <tr>
   <td>NAME</td>
   <td>LINK</td>
   <td>DESCRIPTION</td>
 </tr>
</table>
</center>";
?>

 

and just add:

<tr>

<td>NAME</td>

<td>LINK</td>

<td>DESCRIPTION</td>

</tr>

everytime you want to add another
