Developer Select Promotion - Is there something wrong? No downloads?
I got my free game app Arrow Mania 2 on developer select to get the 500k ad promotion mainly, a fair bit of work. Being an indie dev this kind of promotion is my bread and butter. The promotion started on the 1st and so far with 20,000+ ads shown, 80 clicks (accidental maybe), 1 download! The one download which was very probably a generic download and not from the ads. Can I ask, is there something wrong? Can I edit the advert? Where is this ad being shown, what does it look like? There are very few options in the Promotions screens. Arrow Mania 2:

hey guys. we have the same issue as well. our developer select started on june 1st for our game Pop The Fruit 2. so far about 38,000 impressions with only 132 clicks. I don't know the downloads but its probably about 10% meaning only 13 downloads in 3 days :s We've not seen any increase in downloads reported either. This is quite disappointing because we've spent weeks updating Pop The Fruit 2, I was expecting a lot more considering it says 'Premium placement within the store' for the developer select points. And we've spoken with our developer partners telling them to update their games for developer select. I can't believe it's been this low so far. We were really excited about this and it looks like we're not going to get any decent results from all the hard work. We've spent days so far working with our developer partners, doing testing, support, code feedback etc. I thought 'premium placement' means a position on the home screen for a short time, thats where the real downloads are generated I believe. But I just constantly see the same games up there 'cut the rope 2' 'candy crush saga' etc. Granted these games make good revenue for amazon, but our game does a pretty good ARPU as well. I hope this is just an early glitch or perhaps we've missed something. Sujoy, please let me know. Thanks for the help. Best regards Martin
