  Indie Game News: From Around The Web
   
Before you start advertising your indie game you should build a press kit. A press kit contains high resolution screen shots, logos, art work, videos, game descriptions and anything else that could be used by others to advertise your game. You should also include links to your website, social media and any other online material which concerns your game.

Build your own website
Building a website for your game is extreemly important, it is the center of your advertising campaign and the main hub for all your links, descriptions and instructions for people who wish to play your game. Whether you choose to sell your game on your own website or elsewhere, you will nee this home page to direct your potential customers to your point of sale and let's play videos.
Create a social media presence.
Social media is free and a great way to promote your game. Advertise your game on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pintrest and any other social media you can think of. On your social media pages, you need to link back to your game's home page. This is a great way to drive traffic to your game's homepage.

Advertise your game in progress on an indie game site.
There are websites that allow you to advertise your game even while in the development stage.
