Promoted game listings allow developers to promote their game in premium areas on Kongregate.com. Developers can choose a location on the website to promote their game, purchase the listing using Blocks, and choose how long they want the promotion to run.
On the promoted game listings, you can see how many Blocks are currently available, how many Blocks are currently reserved in promoted listings you currently have running, and the type of listing you can choose.
At the bottom of the page you'll see any previous promotions you have listed, the dates it ran, the location on Kongregate.com, how many blocks were spent, and the impressions & conversion rate.
Here is the modal for setting up a new promoted listing:
As you can see from the listing, you can choose which category page you'd like your promoted listing to appear (for example, RPG games, puzzle games, etc).
In the next dropdown, select which of your games you wish you promote. If you'd like, you can also add a promotional image and text.
Next, select how long you'd like the promotion to run. Please note that you will be charged in Blocks per day, the total of which you can see below "Purchase Listing".
You will not be charged until your game goes live, and you can change the dates any time up until the listing goes live.
Editing or Ending Your Promoted Listing
If you wish, you can edit a promoted listing that has yet to go live, or end a promoted listing early.
Remember: You can only edit scheduled promoted listings, not listings that are currently live.
Your Blocks will not be refunded if you end a promoted listing early!
