You may remember yesterday when we posted our DroidGamers website update and that we talked about a new program we will be opening up for indie Android game developers who would like to advertise here on DroidGamers but can't due to having a tight budget.
Most indie game developers have a tight budget, usually funding their games out of their own pocket and working on the weekends and evenings to make their games after coming home from a full-time job. Top all that off with trying to get a decent amount of exposure on the Google Play store, especially now that the 'Just In' category is gone, it can be a real pain in the ass when trying to make your game be a success on Android.
We try to promote indie Android game developers as much as we can through posts about their games here on the site, having a curated app store which is synced up to the Google Play store, and even having a forum dedicated for indie developers to post freely about their new games to help get the word out. We do know that our monthly advertising slots can be out of the price range for indie developers who are working hard on their games.
This is why we are happy to announce that our Indie Developer Advertising Program is now live. This will give any indie developer a chance to advertise on just about every page here on DroidGamers while keeping it within their budget. It is CPM-based advertising so you will only pay for the amount of impressions you want. We have some packages available that we have created ahead of time but the system is completely customizable for any amount.
All ad slots are located near the top of the right column so they are in a nice prime spot for everyone to see and click on. The system is integrated right into the site so you won't have to go through a third-party company like buysellads.com or anything like that. This system is also almost completely automated. All you need to do is register, sign-in, upload your banner, pick your package, pay through PayPal and you are good to go. There is also a complete control panel for advertisers to use where they can see the reports for all their campaigns including impressions, clicks and more.
There are (2) two 150x150 spots available and (1) one 300x80 slot available to start but as the program grows we will add more slots along with different sizes including 728x90 leaderboards. Everything is now live and it is first come, first serve. To start, just head over to the Advertiser Log-in, create an account and just follow the steps. If you need a custom package, just get in touch with us at702records [at] gmail [dot] com.
We do have future plans for this service, expanding it to offer ad serving onto other sites so stay tuned for news regarding that expansion. If you need help with anything just toss us an e-mail and we will help you out.
