    Hi Guys,

    Articles?
    gaming forums that allow my url in signature?
    gaming blogs?

    You need to target your audiance first.
    Then you need to find out where your future buyers hanging out, then register there and present yourself as a valuable mamber of that community or website.
    Then after a while start to offer your product.

    I will suggest also that you give something for free and build your list and make some connection with your list first to get some trust then suggest them your product.
    This is long term.


    For short term, you need to have some money to invest.
    Also you need to target your buyesr and find where they hang out.
    Then find a way to place your ads there.

    Always glad to help...
    It is great that you will add some free stuff to your users, but consider to give people something free (in trade for their emails) before you even start to sell your product, that way your mailing list will be ready for immediate advertising to very targeted users.

    When you are finished with your website just post it here, we will try our best to give some tought, also don't forget to make good on-page seo foundation.

    It would be better if you take your place in the video game forums as well. There must be relevant and interested peoples to your website.
    Hello there.

    Agreed - I like the design and the in-site SEO basics seem to have been covered. As Nemanja said, go out there and be active in your target communities. I will take some time but be persistent.
