In this recorded Facebook Live Video, I went over a few key tips on letting people into your indie game journey and the how the importance of sharing your story will impact your following! Don’t miss out on this video, it’s a good one!
Your Story Matters. It really does.
Why, you ask?
Well, why do you follow or engage in anything, usually?
Because there’s a story to it. Whether the story comes from a feeling you get when you interact with a certain person. Or that Mayonnaise commercial had a very convincing dialogue about using cage free eggs from local farmers… blah, blah, blah! That’s a story they used and you didn’t even know it! But it got you thinking about how that mayonnaise is better than the other one you have in the fridge, didn’t it?
Seriously, your story does matter — especially in game development.
The biggest mistake I see people making is they’re ONLY posting about their game and the production side of things. That’s great they’re showing progress, but some days you’ve got nothing new to work on. Then all your posting about is the same thing you posted last week? Eckh! People want to know about the “man behind the curtain” or in your case, the face behind the game. So, post about life! Act as if every follower was a friend of yours and let them in on your life.
It’s not as complicated as it sounds, I promise. In fact, it’s probably one of the easiest marketing techniques you could use… no studying or wracking your brain! Just being YOURSELF!
And guess what?
You will NATURALLY gain the right kind of following that is interested in you and your game.
It may take time, however. So don’t treat it like a race.
Gaining the right followers takes time, but the important part is to make sure you start sharing your story NOW! Don’t wait until after your game, begin TODAY.
