Video Game PR
With so many options to market your game, including social media and paid advertising, traditional media coverage and public relations is an often overlooked strategy.
Fortunately, video game PR (financially) costs a lot less than advertising does - in fact, it’s completely free, and only requires time and commitment to develop relationships with the media.
Why is video game PR important? An effective PR strategy and campaign can create visibility and word-of-mouth for your video game by way of reviews, interviews and even quotes within industry-related articles. With content marketing on the rise, consumers are looking for quality, original and digestible content more than ever - and PR is a great way to start.
