BRINDIE quite for Steam Store Page mandatory items

Steam Store Page optimisation

Please note that there are many other items you can create to improve your store page. The Steamworks system does not mark them as mandatory, however we recommend that you prepare them anyhow. Some of the non mandatory but essential items are:

  • adding Developer, Publisher and Franchise connections
  • researching and adding Search Keywords
  • customizing your Steam Store Page background
  • adding more trailers, ideally at least one gameplay and one cinematic trailer

Keep in mind that Steamworks requires more than just setting up your store page before allowing you to release your game

Stay tuned for in-depth BRINDIE guides on optimising your Steam Store Page!

All non mandatory but much needed items are included in all BRINDIE PREMIUM packs.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?
