Please do not post the same thing multiple times. The board software automatically flags certain posts as needing moderator attention. This happens the most often for new users. I'm pretty sure this is made clear at the time you attempt to post. Posting the same thing over and over again just makes that many more posts the moderators have to weed through later. This makes us sad. Don't make us sad. If your post/thread doesn't appear, just wait a while. Don't post it again. If it hasn't shown up by the next day, then you can try again. I normally go through posts in the mornings, and try to check a few times throughout the day, but I'm not here 24/7. There will typically be a significant delay before posts are approved. Just be patient.
How long should my 25K campaign last? 1 day or a week?
It looks like I can spend about 15K to bump my to-be-free app to the Top 50 Arcade Games in the US App Store within one day. A portion of these users will be unqualified users -- which is ok. I do not intend to make money from this batch of people. Assuming that my app Sacred Guns
would indeed arrive at Top 50 at Day 1, three scenarios could happen:
1) the game trends up in ranking
2) the game stays at the same rank
3) the game drops in ranking
Under which scenario would my spend at Day 2 and onwards be cost-effective? I can't think of any. Could you?
Would the remaining 10K then be better spent in another country where it would be enough to reach Top 50 in the same day?
