MINDS. Getting Visual Novels out there?

#1 Post by aE2S » Sat Sep 17, 2016 4:50 pm

So.. as I was speaking to my affiliate the other day and he introduced me to Minds.
Minds is a surprisingly obscure platform for you to use and oh dear, it looks great.

It also has this "Boost" system where you can get forced views, it seems bad, but honestly, it basically means that your posts has a chance of getting out there.

I wanted to introduce this to the people at Lemmasoft because I simply wanted to see more VN dev's around there.

Here is my page; subscribing also earns you some points. Do so and I'll subscribe back for sure ! ^-^

If you register with my referral code, it'll also help me out, ofcourse, it's up to you if you want to register normally :3 .

Let's work together and flood this social media with Visual Novels ~ I'd like to see more people using it for sure. More People = More Traffic for you as well !~
Drop a comment if you have subscribed , it'll remind me :P

P.S: Sorry if I posted in the wrong subforum, this should be correct.. right? D: !

I looked though the site and really doesn't offer anything for VN fans. The site is created for activists not business owners. Checked http://www.easycounter.com

The site bearly gets any views outside from its own users. Also consider your customers who may not want anything to do with a certain topic but because mind showcases those it might drive customers away from you.

In other words, not something you should use for business.

Not really a fan of the "forced views" concept, since it usually has the opposite effect (I instinctively close the ad window before knowing what's advertised.)

But it seems like an in-between platform between tumblr and twitter, and that's nice. I'll keep it in mind.

Yes, it's a website still in Beta. I see your point that it doesn't offer anything to VN fans. Hmm, do you think there can be people who didn't know about VN's and then get into it after seeing the posts? I also feel like this website is really free & convenient I guess. I'll try it out somemore and see if it helps or not. Heck, even the co-creator just subscribed, o_o .

I think it's a considerable amount of users, maybe in the future it might benefit us? Ahh, really? I think they are all really open to this "boosting" system since they all want to use them anyways o_o

After using using for awhile , the "forced views" concept isn't really that forceful. You can simply scroll through your feed without even realizing it's there. Advertisements are different tho, I'm not really sure how to explain. =.=''

Yes! It feels like a place where you can communicate easily , no word-limit and the posts and what not also looks great.

I'm not currently producing my own VN, but I went ahead and made an account and reposted some of your guys' stuff. Zelaan

(I accidentally mistyped my username, but I rather like the double 'a' so I decided to just roll with it.)

Who knows if we'll actually get any exposure, but hey, it's worth a shot. *shrugs* What could pawsibly go wrong?

Thanks a lot :D
I'll be trying my best to continually post there in hopes of getting some exposures. I'll also be using the tags so.. who knows, maybe, just maybe.
