Project: 
Bforartists Tracker

We need to make Bforartists a bit better known. So we spread the news at various boards and pages. It's also time to write a Wikipedia article. This task here is about all this promotional work.

Seems that promoitonal work is not so easy. At gamedev.net i got warned for spamming I-m so happy

But the moderator was so kind to put it into the right category then. Where most probably never ever somebody will read it, yay ...

Contacted CGChannel, the news feed behind Gnomon.

Posted at 3d total, but the area is moderated. So waiting for the thread to get read by a moderator and released.

Polycount wants everything in one thread. Updating the old thread now ...

Wrote to some moderators at reddit if it is okay to post a press release in their sub reddits. We will see.

Wrote the german pc magazine Computerbild. They have a software list ...

Posted a reddit entry in the subreddit 3dma. The mod gave the permission to do so.

Mailed a german graphics magazine called Digital Production. Waiting for an answer.

Submitted Bforartists to the german Computerbild magazine in hope that they add it to the list of software.

The other subreddit mods pointed me towards reddit/advertising. Guess that was a no I-m so happy

Stopping at this point. But will continue at it from time to time.

I found out and got exicted about BfA after seeing this video:

pointed tinkercad users to BfA as a next step:

Created the facebook page. Will publish to it hopefully once every 2 days or so.

I am investing about a dollar a day into ads. Will add more later. Might get a like or two every day.

https://www.facebook.com/bforartists/

If you have any target countries, markets, cities, or keywords to target to, let me know!

Reiner's picture

Looking great. Good job Smile

I will make a news about it now, and link it in the forums and in the wiki.

Draise's picture

For facebook - as mentioned in the forums - I will build a publicity campaign to start with. I just was wondering if I could have access to the images/videos you all have on a cloud to use on facebook?

Reiner's picture

Hm. Couldn't you just download the youtube videos?

What images do you mean?

Draise's picture

Yeah, I guess I can rip the videos from Youtube. I'll do that.

Images like the spashscreen, website images from the gallery, promotional images used on the website. Feels like I'm a pirate downloading what I find.  If it's too much of a chore, don't worry. I'll build a bank of material over time.

Reiner's picture

Just rip what you need I-m so happy

A bulgarian magazine / download page has picked Bforartists up. http://www.idg.bg/downloads/356310/bforartists

German magazine Digital production mentions the 0.9.5 release. https://www.digitalproduction.com/2017/10/17/bforartists-release-0-9-4-e...

Draise's picture

I should post these mentions to the facebook page.

Reiner's picture

No bad idea Smile

Made it a suggestion at Heise Downloads. Let's have a look if they add it.

Submitted an entry to upload.cnet.com. Cnet is one of the biggest download portal pages around.

https://upload.cnet.com

Reiner's picture

Cnet has approved the upload meanwhile. But currently i cannot find the download listed anywhere. Funny I-m so happy

Reiner's picture

Bforartists is now listed as download at the german magazine Computerbild. http://www.computerbild.de/download/Bforartists-19622603.html
