Does hiring a professional marketing companies worse it?

Hi guys.

We are small company based in New York. We recently released our first title. So the next step is promoting. And of course we got Google for it.

While reading couple articles(some of them were very help full) you notice couple companies, that make professional App Marketing as told on their web sites.

Does anybody deal with those companies and if yes what was the experience and the end result.

So after all there is one question: does it worse it?


Thanks

That post confuses me. I'm not sure what "And of course we got Google for it [promotion]" is supposed to mean.

In general, I would say that a marketing firm will not be worth it for you at this point. Your game is already released and you missed your window of opportunity. If you intend to use a marketing firm, you need to employ them BEFORE you release in order to make the most of pre-release promotion and generating hype at time of release.

I didn't mean to have any promotions(and there are no any)

Thanks for your advice. Will keep it in mind for the next project
