Psh... that's like two weeks worth of wages for one employee. Multiply your investment offer by 100x and you might get a better response.

Personally, this sounds a bit sketchy to me. If I was an android developer who has already developed and released a game (as you're requiring), why would I ever need an investor??? My project is done! It doesn't cost me anything any more, it's a revenue stream which is returning me profits on my investment of time and sweat. A proper investment is more than just a few bucks thrown around, it's a calculated commitment of faith in a risky proposition which may or may not pay off. To me it sounds like you're trying to offer a meager sum of money to piggyback on the coattails of someone else's success because there is no risk anymore, and that does not appeal to anyone. So, you need a much better sales pitch, because I'm not taking you seriously as an investor.

Advertising. A released game makes you $0 profit if nobody knows about it. Free-to-play games require continued maintenance and investment in order to keep the revenue stream up or accelerate it.

But $2,000 is chump change in the advertising department...

Hi guys, yes we'd like to invest in advertising, and thank you for the feedback regarding the investment.

 

$2000 is not a huge amount indeed but if invested properly could dramatically improve the revenue.

We are not aiming to invest in big studio games. Rather, we are focusing on small time indies which we believe have the potential to grow.

 

Which games are you developing?
