First off, I would suggest you make a proper video. Even at 99c, you're competing with some very polished titles.

Yes, I saw the video - hence my comment. Unfortunately, your video is almost unwatchable because it's so out of focus. It's the first thing people check if they're undecided about whether or not to buy so it's worth taking the time to make it as good as you can. You don't need to pay anyone, just use a decent camera & take your time. Software like iMovie makes editing pretty easy too.

There are numerous threads about marketing on here and all of them are worth reading.

You can hold contests, deliver promo codes and update your game.

Who can tell me what to write here
