Default Now THIS is how you market an app!

I'm posting these here because Rainier seriously deserves some credit for creative marketing videos and for making a cool game. Hands down the best promo vids I've ever seen.

Let's help him get some attention for ActingOut!

Here's his upcoming games thread: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=155197

Oh, and post your favorite funny promo videos in the thread too for lolz!

IIRC the marketing video was outsourced to http://supercoolcreative.com/ if you want to give credit.

Hi Mark, yes, you're correct. I posted in the Upcoming thread about how Supercool Creative put together the marketing video with the live actors. They've been great, and, you know, super cool and creative.

I wanted to make sure people had a way of finding out about their talent so I added them in the information fields on the YouTube page in case people were curious.

@BravadoWaffle, thank you! I actually have about 4-5 more videos already produced, waiting for the right time to release it. Since the app is all about acting, I got the domain actingout.tv, which will redirect to our YouTube channel and will display what will hopefully be a regular stream of Acting Out related content.

Hey Rainier,

These definitely look super cool. I checked out their website but I didn't see any pricing info. Would you mind sharing the costs or PMing me?

Nice way to market an app, however, you need to have a moderate advertising budget to generate this kind of marketing. It looked great and the price may be worth it in the end.

Are you going to show videos made by the players (with their agreement of course) ? Something like "best video of the week" ? That would be cool

Thanks pat3ck, that's what I'm hoping for too. It certainly makes it easier to approach potential reviewers with a polished video.

jlauener, yes! We're planning on giving out prizes for some of the best words being acted out and submitted by our users. Some things we've considered are trophies, in-game currency, and those ClearShot credit card sized iphone stands.
