GP Xmas Calendar 2009 – Door 21 (How to Get Stuff This Xmas)

A few weeks ago I approached one big game site to write about Indie games advent calendar. The site ignored me and I didn’t got covered.

It’s like when you were a kid asking your parents to give you that robot toy – but they told you “no way”. Then you starte yelling until they give up.

Almost same can be used in marketing.

I was ignored once, but that didn’t stop me emailing them again.

So I did.

And behold, there it is.

Kotaku is a nice place. Gets decent traffic.

And… one participant emailed me that he “just made a sale thanks to xmas site”. That’s cool.

Good thing I asked twice.

Merry Christmas everybody!

  1. Good to know, good to know… looks like we totaled for 65000+ pageviews for the site. That’s a pretty nice campaign. Next step: figure out if people made any sales… :)

  2. I haven’t made a sale yet, but there has been a massive increase in both traffic and demo downloads.
    This shows to me that even though they’re landing on a different page, a few readers are looking through the other doors.
