    Here's one I've been using, and it has been helping me a little bit... I'm on tech sites while I'm working... I go to the sites as a little break from my developing... On Disqus, I have a QR code as my profile picture... People I'm talking too see it, and scan it...

    Great way to get exposure!! I am actually shocked to see so few developers here posting, I would think they need as much help with promoting thier games and apps. I wrote these guides to help you market your apps effectively.

    The whole marketing thing is a bit of a mystery to me. I've developed software for 25 years but selling is a whole different skillset. I wrote to maybe 60 review sites, and with maybe 4 exceptions they either totally ignored me or else said "actually we're not really free - give us $30/$50$100/$199". I might just abandon any idea of making money - my two apps (SourcesPro, especially) do just what I want so I get loads of fun and creative buzz out of them anyway. Thanks for the articles.

    I would say it better to market by posting your games on forums like in my signature and doing facebook and twitter promotions. Look over the tips I never mentioned going to review sites. Your right review sites don't have the impact they should for the price they want but they can help with SEO.

    As you are marketing your app, you can monetize your new users with an SDK such as ours. Check out AppBucks :: DeveloperSignup for more info. I have a thread here explaining what we do and how we can help.

    Alright Paul I have some research into your company and it seems people have problems getting paid or contacting you.

    Terrible experience with AppBucks

    And a your own company rep doesn't know when AppBucks payouts occur or the amount .The Rep told a developer he thinks the company pays at $50 limit but he is not sure. That makes no sense

    New icon/push Android ad network - AppBucks - Page 2

    And the domain is up for sale, what happens to the people who earned money will the new buyers pay them. Why is the domain up for sale? If the company is making money .

    AppBucks.com is for sale - GenericDomainMarket.com

    I am very sorry but this looks like AppBucks is a scam.

    I noticed alot of new AD companies pop-up please be careful with fly by night companies promoting fast earnings. In truth you need alot of downloads to gain decent money from apps.
