|Hey! So I started an RPG, and I've advertised and everything, but NOBODY is even looking at it. I tag all my posts, and I put up a ton of characters to apply for, and I made it clear that original characters are welcomed. I think my plot's pretty good, so what can I do to get more people interested?|
Get your friends to help out! If you have MSN, put the link in your personal status/text. If you are on Caution, A thousand Fireflies, etc. Put up ads there if you haven’t, post in some threads and provide a link to your site in your signature if the forum allows for you to do so to advertise. Also evaluate things like your skin, your graphics. It seems ridiculous, but it’s pretty known that people don’t like staring at a site they don’t find aesthetically pleasing. Maybe put your anon on tumblr, and then asks people to give you honest opinions, but those that are helpful and not just blatant bad-mouthing or nit-picking. You might find that people can be helpful that way. Good luck!
