View Full Version : Marketing Web Games to Site Owners
08-10-2010, 01:36 AM
I have created a small number of customisable Flash games, but am struggling to find the best way to market these to site owners.
The games include things like coloring books, word-find puzzles, and matching games. Each game is customisable.
For the coloring book, webmasters can easily add their own pictures.
With the word-find they define the word list, and layout graphics, sounds etc.
With the match-up game they define the cards to be used, along with other graphics etc.
And there's more to come.
All the games can be seen here...
You'll also see some in use on this site (under construction)...
But the problem is how to market these to webmasters.
If you were looking for a customisable game such as this for a site you were working on, where would you start?
Any suggestions gratefully received.

You can market your web game to children website or website for special kids or you can market them as freebie games for websites which can be downloaded. May I also suggest creating a game like card game and mind games.

I would think that a potential channel for Flash games is eLearning. Quite a few learning management systems use Flash modules. The fact that they are customizable seems extra relevant for elearning if there was a way you could attach a scoring component.

Geez, I like what you've got going on there that's for sure but I don't feel the layout. It's not telling me right away what you're site offers (which is something pretty sweet in my webmaster's opinion)...
When I (the webmaster) read your post and quickly scanned the responses, I wasn't quite (quite) sure what you were offering but assumed it was game embedding.
I clicked and found next to little that inspired me. I did go a page deeper and believe it is what I assumed you were offering. There was no call to action on that page that stood out nicely either...you really need this, this is a nice niche.
Inspire me please, put up a coloring book or something, right on the home page, as an example. Make your Google ads jive with the site's color.
Then move some of your marketing to Facebook to start (a new path). I think you'll go for.
P.S. I did see the Try Now on a secondary page at the top - but scrolled down because that example and the area around the text actually looked like an image.
Actually, the example now was mixed in with a few image ads so totally was overlooked and ad-blinded by me.

Google – Ads.
The search engine would be the first place I would start to look, if I were looking.
The search engine is probably where I would find it, even if I was looking for something else related to website development or flash applications.
There’s also social networking to consider.
Here’s a thought,… Hosting companies. Their control panels offer all kinds of applications for the webmaster. Some are free with the hosting service and some are available as an extra charge. Perhaps there could be something worked out with hosting companies.
BTW, you offer some very kewl items.

On your site I saw that you are looking for affiliates. Why don't you try linkshare.com or comparable services to find them?

How about do a search about your target audience on google then contact each one of them and share your website. I'm sure you might get a few leads that way.
