    Making Money with Mochi Ads

    Hello everyone, I recently got flash so I have 3 games set up with Mochi Ads, when I wondered how everyone else goes about distributing their games.

    You can find lists of flash sites to publish your game on, but a lot of them are not very effective, seeing as your game will barely get any views, so I was wondering what everyone else does to get the most out of mochi ads.

    Does anyone else think it'd be a good idea to create a list of sites that are worth the few minutes to upload your game? I think it'd be rather valuable, and if anyone would like, when I set up website again, I'll make a little page to help klikers set up their flash games for the most effecient money-making.

    What I'm asking now is: what sites do you publish to, and how effective are they?

    Re: Making Money with Mochi Ads

    I think there are two schools of thought.

    1) Upload to every site (crazy)

    2) Upload to one big site and wait for the smaller sites to pick up your game from the big site (lazy)

    Obviously, what's the best way to go is somewhere in between and will depend on your game and vary case by case...

    If you have a stellar game, something really unique and appealing, you can be quite sure that after submitting it to Newgrounds, it will get everywhere from there during the next few days. So with a really good game, I assume you don't need to do so much manual work on the distribution.

    With a crappy game or something that just doesn't stand out, you might benefit more from manual uploading. But if it's just not good enough, you will see diminishing impressions quite soon after your hard uploading work. And when you consider the fact that you need hundreds of thousands of impressions with Mochi to generate any real ad income, it can easily be a total waste of time. Unless of course you like to do it anyway.

    Eliyahu, I've already made a list/system like that.
    Think of it as a glorified copypaste machine, containing around 250 arcades you can submit to, they are sorted by their Alexa rating + google rank, so you can filter out those not worth the trouble yourself. PM me if you'd like to betatest.

    Newgrounds is one of the best places (from what I can see) to get a real measure of how good your game really is as a lot of the reviewers will not hold back to tell you what they really think of your game. Sometimes they are pretty brutal. I've tested the submission process with my craptacular smiley game and got 1 acceptable review out of 4. The other three reviews were useless as it they were less than 9 characters long...lol...

    I am working on my next game which will actually have some game play and will be posting that to Mochimedia in the next few months or whenever I can get to it. (I have a day job you know )

    Either way, if you do plan on trying to make money with Mochi Ads it's got to have good game play and high production value otherwise it'll get lost along with the jigsaw puzzle games.

    Yes, Newgrounds is very good - I got thousands of views for even little games on that, and that's a quantity of audience that I was completely unused to before the Flash convertor came around. (The fact that 99% of them are criminally insane notwithstanding)

    Mochimedia is also excellent if you use their SWF encryption and click the "Distribute my game" option when you get it approved - the Flash version of Treasure Tower has been put on places I didn't even know existed. At the moment the most hits are coming from funny-games.biz, which I hadn't even heard of before, and uses the enormously classy Comic Sans font throughout their site. It's not an enormous money maker, but it's $10 (so far, six days) that I didn't have before, and it's really encouraging to see so many people playing it.

    That is cool and congrats to you. I've made enough money in the last couple of days to buy a pack of gum and a gumball and my game is no where near as nice as other games I've seen.

    I hope to graduate to a burger and fries with my next one.

    That's the spirit Even though games' views will always drop off after a while on the front pages of the various portal sites, if you have a few of them going, then it's possible that the revenue you get will keep going up gradually in the background... something to cash out on once every so often.

    Re: Making Money with Mochi Ads

    I agree, the more places you submit to, even if they don't provide much traffic, it'll eventually add up, especially if you have multiple games.
    I've been submitting to quite a few, but I wasn't really looking for advice on getting my game out there, I understand the concept of distribution and all, I was just hoping to hear some success stories or ideas to get the most success you can.

    I think it's quite obvious that Newgrounds is very helpful, they hold the most views for me. Mochi's distributor hasn't done much, but then again, my games are 1-3 days old on it, so perhaps it'll be distributed even farther.

    If anyone discovers some sites that provide lots of views for games, I as well as many others would appreciate your secret to be shared with the rest of us
    And if anyone has been successful with sponsorships, some tips would be nice.

    I'm just trying to gather information to hopefully share with others and myself to get the best out of mochi.

    Also, Burfelt, expect a PM Thanks everyone!
