I liked zOMG! and Gaia on facebook, AND invited some people to take a look at us.
I'm also thinking about sending a message to another website Im on thats ALL about games. I could get the man in charge there to bring up some ads on zOMG! too! smile
That would be great! What's the website, if you don't mind sharing?
Hidden Arc - Orly? How did you come across the game?
As I just changed my quote, and you quote on quote it, the website is Vizzed. They show many ads there, and you can play retro games and watch retro videos for free! The only thing you pay is Viz, which you get from posting in forums. I'm gonna ask him smile
So I'm not much of a forum poster (so I can't even imagine trying to set up a thread for this) but I wanted to suggest sending in zOMG related art, letters, more to the HQ. Maybe fan art of zOMG. Or just fan art of staffers interacting with a zOMG monster (riding a fluff, in combat with something, etc).
For those of you who have problems mailing things (overseas, cost, etc) I am willing to print out the virtual copies of your letters/art/more and personally mail them myself for you. (Mailing from my location would mean about 3 days before envelope reaches the HQ).
I'm thinking something tangible showing up at the office here and there (with zOMG love all over it) will definitely get the staffers talking. It's not money, but a LOT of the staffers have plenty of cubicle wall space. And imagine the impact if they had a zOMG related fan art that they could put up next to their name tag on the outside of their cubicle. Just walking around the office would mean that one is reminded of zOMG. (The staffer doesn't even have to be zOMG related. Heck the less zOMG related the more uncharted terriority we can reach)]]
Menthy loves mail. There is not a single being that does not love mail.
I big site that could be great to have zomg posted on is newgrounds, thousands of people go on it.
edit:also another good way to promote zomg is to take its art and post it on big art sites like devient art, but instead of saying its yours you say its gaias, who has full ownership of it, then post a link in the description.
edit: as mentioned before we should post video on youtube, I notice everytime i watch a video, an hour later its on the front page, now if we had people watching these video (us) a lot then zomg would be on the front page a lot.
I believe that zomg should release many rings, not at once though and have it out for a short time, because then people on gaia will buy them to make gold. Who remembers the sweetheart ring, it hit a high of I think around 2.5 million gold a few weeks back, this would promote gaians to hoard the ring so they can make a profit off of them. They should also make a zomg rig, and on very very rare occasions drop a ring, which would be the rig animal. Many people buy the rigs for a profit, and if the items are expensive in the mp, people will buy the rig.
I was gonna send you a pm about this Cleo, but I spotted your thread as I was looking for a transcript of the meeting. smile
I don't use Facebook for many reasons, but I do have a friend that will get the word out on her account. Once I figure out the mind-muckery that Myspace has become I will attack promote it there. Livejournal's always worth a shot, too.
The idea about putting up advertisements in public's a great idea! I could always tack up a flyer at the college's student center. If you don't mind, I can link this thread in our clan's newsletter? I'm sure some of the sisters would have no problems spreading the news.
heart I put it on my facebook, but I was (as I usually am) hesitant to spam it to my friends, since Gaia is like my secret place. But I bothered some of the people who already knew I was on here with it, to try and lure them in.
Well, I don't know what I would do with a pet until that's explained better, but I am likely to purchase a head start ticket now. *starts saving up offers* Must show them that I will plaaaaaaay this game. I also really hope that they install that ad before the game starts. I'll bet that will help a lot. (I hope it will, anyway. Good Lord.)
I'll spread the word outside of Gaia where I can, primarily on Grand Fantasia and site forums.
Just a thought: there are a ton of MMO directories online. MMO Hut, MMO Champion, MMORPG, MMO Site, etc. All of these sites have forums or pages for various games already established. A positive comment or two, or even better, a new zOMG! thread on a forum wouldn't hurt. I think you'd be surprised how many people check these sites if they're hesitant about starting a new game, or if they're already very experienced gamers and are looking for something new to try.
-Posted on my facebook and got another person to do so as well, will try to make a note on my video game club tomorrow, so that may help (we have around 30 members) c:
-I'm also going to try to make at least one poster and find out where I can hang them and such. If I ever get around to it (and finish) then I'm thinking I may post it somewhere for other people to print out too if they'd like.
-And another idea, I think I'm going to host a contest along the lines of 'whoever gets the most amount of x loot', multiple places/loot things (or something along those lines, that's just a rough idea), with some good prizes (such as gold and hq art). Hopefully that'll draw some more attention. Atm I'm discussing the idea with a couple of friends and I'm feeling pretty optimistic. It'd be really lovely if people would be willing to donate prizes (gold, art, items) or if I could get the devs involved; however this is not set in stone yet, so please don't try to send anything for the prizes yet -wanted to say that just in case < <- (though it'd be nice to know if anyone was interested or if I could get some feedback on this idea).
