Does /g/ have any experience on web development?
I made a simple web application, something really simple with chats. The question is:
How do I get users on my website? Do I have to spam it?
Don't spam man, it will get you nothing but bad rep. You should give it a feature that makes people want to use it. Maybe like anonymous chatting in randomly generated chat rooms that people can enter if only given the link .
The name kinda suck, and it's a really simple application to create chats, but since it's my first application I feel like I must give it a chance.
Dude. Why does a gymnast chalk up his hands? Similar concept. I don't see how you can't do some simple reasoning in your head to figure out the purpose. If you shoot semi-regularly you will feel the difference after just doing what everyone else is and figure it out. I seriously have not met someone who went: dude what is this stuff for. Unless you're like 10 and haven't played pool before.
Well, I'm going to tell you what I did but probably this isn't the best.
I make random games and applications for android and put ads on top of them when I finish to then publish them in the appstore.
I don't do this full time, I have fun with this like any other entertainment activity and the ads are just in case I one day get lucky and start making flappy bird amounts of money with a random retarded app that took less than 24 hours to make.
To advertise it I wrote a simple program in C++ that basically spams links to the google play profiles of my apps to the random omegle user that gets connected to my computer and then disconnects to go look for another victim.
It does this infinitely, I usually have it run when I go to sleep.
This has gotten me some downloads and people don't seem to be angry about it because I've gotten reviews from people that say they enjoyed it so the fact that it was spam didn't get them angry.
>mfw now everyone /g/ will do this.
>mfw omegle will get flooded with this shit
>mfw omegle finds a way to stop everyone and of course, me.
Why do you want users? Sounds dumb, but that is the basic question to ask first. Do you think it is something users would actually benefit from using?
- Write about it and the reason they would benefit in a related forum of people of normal intelligence.
Do you want money from advertising?
-spam, spam, spam, any social media, promise them wild benefits you from using it you made up
Do you want to just test it under usage and load?
-ask web developers and media people nicely to use it and give you feedback (even if you don't want the actual feedback), they love talking about what other people did
I'm thinking of advertise later.
I actually see a lot of uses for it, but one of the main uses is for example if you need help to something, instead of posting in some forum and wait for an answer, you can easily create a chat and talk in real time with anyone that is interested in your question. This is one of the many uses I can think of.
>People put it on without knowing what it does
Chalking the tip of a pool stick helps to prevent a miscue -- which is when the tip of the stick does not make clean contact with the ball -- due to the added friction. Without chalk, the tip of the pool stick can slip off the ball, compromising the accuracy and power of the shot.
Well, why not pick unanswered questions you know the answers for in a (fast-paced) forum and herd the people who need help to your page (saying it is easier to solve in a chat) and then ask them to promote your page in return if they liked it. Also just forums that are having discussions, and then just say, hey I made a chat for this topic on that website ·[enter benefits here] let's talk there. Or even better, get some of your friends in their "discussing" a given topic and say they are discussing that right now in this chat... Stuff like that. Generally, just plant it (it is spamming still, but related). You won't really get around some sort of social media, forum spam and faking a bit that it is being used. Just keep it really related and unobtrusive.
