Traffic so low once your not on the first page, whats the solution?
hey guys!

just wondering if theres some advice out there, i know theres people on the graph showing HUGE spikes like 1000+ yes votes a day and im just wondering what the secrets are. I've tried advertising, different campaigns, forum posts on indie game sites, and now im straight cold calling. is there something im missing cause if im not cold calling there is literally like 5-10 views an hour which is terrible.
whats your guys idea im open to suggestions, anyone else having the same problem?

Wouldn't you get a better response asking in the dev group?

Isn't that pretty nomal anyway? New releases are seen and voted on by the majority of people during the first few days, and then they've already seen and voted. People rarely come back to a project so you're bound to see a massive drop off afterwards.

ya but were talkin from 2-3k views day 1 to 300 views day 2 onward(unlucky got pushed off front page after one day from all the new submissions) guess im just wondering how there is games on the statistics that are averaging 1000+ yes votes a day over a 2-3 week period when with advertising, cold calling, and forum support im lucky to have a 300 yes votes day. there must be something im missing cause our games solid. just wanted to see if anyone actually knew and would share is all.

That's pretty standard (at least it is according to figures Alden gave out a few months ago). Don't worry about it overmuch.

Some games have history, background and a pre-existing crowd to vote. e.g. there are old MMO games which are on GL with a thousands strong fanbease coming to vote, there was "Chaos Reborn" which was such big news that every magazine in the business sent people looking for their Greenlight page, there was "Satellite Reign" which had a kickstarter so big that even if 10% of their backers came to vote it would throw the curve.
Also remember that you don't need to be the top game to get through, If you're still getting those 2-300 votes then over the next couple of weeks you should make it.

Well if you want somethign to get attention, you need to promote the game anywhere you can. Send out previews to blogs, post on gaming forums, Reddit. Everywhere. If you aren't advertising, why would anybody take notice?
