Rules:

  • To be added as an entrant: Buy something or Just write your opinion on this week's Shop, please think on how I could make it even better than this.
Make sure you comment on THAT POST not on this!

Other Rules:

The opinions I'm looking for are comparing this week's shop to the one before. If you want to help me answer as much as you can of these questions:

  • How do you feel about the number of games in the list? Should I add more?

  • What do you think about me selling the Humble Monthly Gift?"

  • Your opinion on buying steam gifts discounted on demand. Do you think you'll use it in the future?

  • What about the number of weekly featured titles? Should it stay the same?

  • Is there a game from the previous list you & missing here, you want it back?

  • Everything can help. Tell me what you think even if you believe it's unnecessary.

You can suggest for a game to feature next week!

  • Upvote/Resteem is highly welcome but not necessary to enter!

Deadline: 10 September 2018. 11:59PM EET (UTC +2)

Approx. five/six days after the start of the contest!.



Prizes

  • **Anyone who puts their opinion that wasn't put before him will get a place in the poll.

  • All the SBD/STEEM rewards from this post (not the shop.) I will use the reward. Everyone who qualifies will get the same amount of reward.

  • What are your most wanted games not in my list, even if not released yet!

Example: if the payout was 2 STEEM and two 1$ games are bought, the reward poll will be 2.2 STEEM. Everyone confirmed entrants an equal share of that reward.

How to Contribute to the Prize:

  • ℅10 of the price of all games bought by entrants will be added to the prize pool. (Including the buy on-demand ones. But excluding parts paid with SBI.)

  • For every entrant spending 5 STEEM/SBD or more on my shop: I'll add 1 SBI share to the prize.

  • For every 5 in the payout by the sixth day, I'll add 1 SBI share to the prize.

  • For every Resteem I'll add to the prize poll 0.01-1.00 STEEM. Depending on the Resteemer (Their rep, activity, and recent posts.) Please tell me that you resteemed!

Every commentator with a personal opinion will count as an entrant. Every buyer will count as an entrant. Every Steemian should take part!

Steam Power rewards won't be calculated in the prize.

Current Reward Poll : "0.650 STEEM + Payout" (by 6th September)

Current SBI shares: 1


Did I mention you can pay with SBI shares now?!

I believe if my shop took off by the word of mouth. Steem adoption and trading will increase. Gaming community will be more active and we all win.



This is my first post using the @eSteem desktop app,
Thanks @good-karma!

This is my personal opinion, as crude as it gets, which is what I'd find more helpful.

  • <- This is horrible when centered.

There are things that simply won't sell. You can offer them on a package deal to cash them out or give out as extras bit by it for every purchase over a certain $. Be more picky with your highlights. I.e. I doubt Tesla Effect is popular enough. Every extra second you make them browse means one second less they will spend browsing.

Good text, but too long. You want them to buy, not read. Keep it short and sweet. Your introduction should be straight forward. People want to shop, so leave your personal marketing in (like the books), but details and opinions out.

My trained eyes always skip text irrelevant to my purchase. If someone doesn't skim through your text, their buyer disposition will be lower when they finally get to the store list. They are more likely to give up before going over everything.

Most buyers don't care what bundle it comes from. We usually want to know what's new, what's highlighted, browse some broad categories and pick something within our budget, in this order.

Here's what happens when we login on Steam:

Pop up with big highlights
Store page with discounts and releases
Scroll down to see categories and related interests


Are you sure you want to accept SBI as 1 steem? Because 0.5 will be appropriate. The other person does get their own share as well. They're not sponring you, they're getting something back for it. The game.

However if you're sure, please let me know as I'll rush to make a few purchases.

·

Thanks for the helpful comment, I'll go back to it later but as a start: Yes I'm sure of my decision! I'll probably lose at first though. But SBI is a long term goal and sometimes I might buy it myself without a reason.

But please read the full rules, you can pay at most HALF of the purchase with SBI, and some games have different rules so ask about the games you wanna buy first.

I'll go back to comment on your other points later, Really, THANK YOU!

I did read them, still makes me want to rush and buy some.

Sorry I had a blackout the last time and all, now I can comment on your other suggestions:

Corrected in the post! Is it better now?


About this bit:

I thought about it and I'll think about it more now, thanks for advising me to be more picky! It goes well with @theironfelix suggestions.

Wait... What? Are you okay?

·
·
·

Don't worry it's a usual thing here, it was always unpredictable so I'm used to that. It just stays for longer hours now.

So yeah, I'm okay!!

·

Oh, I thought you passed out. Eletrical blackouts are bad, but I'm still relieved.

·

All your suggestions are great now I added you to the contest.

Thank you!

Since you asked, I'm not an expert on marketing, but being listed on http://steemeconomy.com/ and have your own interface that interacts with the sales could be helpful.

It would not hurt to ask around different Discord servers for ideas on how to implement the shop feature.

·

Thanks I'll think if I can get listed there, checking the site out. Oh it's run by @timcliff I'm sure I conversed with him at some point!

Remember, The main suggestions should be in the shop post not here.

But added you as an entrant either way.

Here's some thoughts (I've bought from @dgamesshop bvefore, but not you):

I think you have a good number of games. Overall, you don't want to have too much, but you also want enough to entice people who might be doing an impulse buy.

The Humble Monthly thing is something I'd have to do more research on. It seems like it's a good thing for people who have access to plentiful crypto but no fiat, but I'm not sure how appealing it is for people otherwise.

Discounted games purchase is definitely a winner, at least if you're not taking a huge loss on it. You might also do well to use a seller like Green Man Gaming that often offers promotions, or another service, and just send keys, though you want to avoid anywhere that might give shoddy keys.

Four featured games works okay, but some of this may depend on format.

One thing that I'd consider is some sort of genre divider for the overall games list. You've got some good stuff in there, but sorting through to the stuff that would be appealing to certain players could be difficult.

·

Thanks for all these suggestions. The humble bundle part isn't for everyone, but I was at some point wishing for someone to buy me I Humble Gifts. I can offer this service myself now.

Discounted games purchase is definitely a winner,

Yup, that's the main attraction of my shop!! I don't have losses with it except with the %10 added to this contest which I'll be glad to lose if I'll get more customers. I'm thinking of getting from GMG at sales.

Since you have "Games" in your name.

Do you have a game that you want that's not in my list? even if it's not released yet. The more names you give me the more it'll help me.

Four featured games works okay, but some of this may depend on format.

What about five featured games? Can you direct me to a better format, should I make the amount of words for each game less? By how much?

Will wished you have entered in the main post.

but added you as an entrant anyway

Upvot'd and resteem'd both this and the store page! Shall make me entry comment very soon.

Btw the low amount of gamers on steemit is very limiting, but even worse is how most of them don't bother looking beyond their own livestream. You should reach out to them.

That's the next thing I'm gonna work on!!

How about I give us all a little boost. Should be up by next weekend. What do you think? I mean, I've got games I can put up for sale, too. I'm sure @fervi and everyone posting offers on @dgameshop and dgameland would love this.

Well, if this succeeds it'll be a great success!!

The prices of your store are pretty good and there is a pretty solid mix. I enjoy looking through it every week.
