Developing a game is a long process and often difficult process, which takes a lot of time and effort to perfect. Unfortunately, time and effort do not guarantee that the launch of your game will be a success right away. To have a successful launch, it is important to promote your game.
Advertising on social media, sending newsletters, creating promotional videos, or writing a blog post are known ways to promote a new game. But there is another, particularly effective way to boost your game’s presence: the distribution of game keys.
To reach a wider, larger but most importantly right audience, you can distribute game keys to players and content creators (aka influencers) across the world to put your game in broad daylight.
Game keys distribution is one of the best ways to promote your game. The right players can explore your game, create the content around it and introduce your game to their audience. This post will summarize a few methods to distribute your game keys and reach a wider audience.
Send influencers directly
This is a more active way of promoting your game and will require some time and more work. Finding the right influencers who play games similar to yours could be a great start. Personalized messages to influencers are more likely to convince them to work with you and promote your game.
Streamers on Twitch and Youtube, are your best promoters. An often-used strategy is to contact gamers and ask them if they want to test the beta version of your game. This creates anticipation before the official launch.
This approach, however, takes a lot of time and effort to write personal messages to influencers. Often these content creators get a lot of similar requests in their mailbox already.
Use Discord To Distribute Game Keys
Discord is a very well-known messaging app among game players. The messaging platform itself is quite aware of this and has solutions for game developers to distribute game keys. With the help of bots and AI’s that perform automated tasks, you can easily distribute and manage game keys.
