Gladiabots merchandising?

Post#1 » 28 Oct 2017, 22:43

Hey guys, some of you told me they would be interested in buying some Gladiabots merchandises.
So I've been looking for the available solutions online and Threadless seems to be the best for my needs so far (not too much work on my side except make and upload assets, a dedicated hosted store front, international delivery, etc).
Here are some examples of what could be sold using some game assets :

And some price vs profit estimations:

So I'd like to get your feedback on the possibility to have that.
If enough are interested, I'll open the store soon.

(You could make an option to upload AI and have merchandise (maybe a notebook) on that) ;)

I'd like to see the logo with the name. A bot is nice but does not communicate much.

Price is fine I would say. I would suggest to downsize the bots a little bit. And the red ones would be cool too.

Is it possible to get the cool "devil" shotgun as a tshirt in red. Damn that would be awesome. If not I'll buy 2 t-shirts anyways (one with a bot and another with the "Gladiabots" name logo). I suppose that means i count as 2 votes. ;)

I'll upload other examples with red team bots and the logo.
But it doesn't seem very popular actually ^^'

Why don't you rotate the Bot? Should it not be the right way up when holding the phone straight?

the logo, as expected, looks nice and gives also a pointer to the one watching!

May I ask why do you focus on this type of merchandising, while selling skins would be far more effective ? I mean, maybe the 20 most active players would buy one shirt, and on 1 shirt you will earn 1/4 of the price.

I'm not a professional businessman, but when you take a look to Fortnite for example:
- They make a cool FREE game, so millions of people come and play. Nothing to buy, nothing to pay
- When millions of people are playing, they make a store: 10€ per skin, and that's how you make shitload of money.


By selling skins you would earn more:
- Let's say a skin costs 2€
- You can make X different skins for each bot
- Explosions skins (I mean a different explosion when you kill a bot, like goals on rocket league: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXK0yBXRSdo)
- Maybe Base skins ?
- I would definitely buy 3-4 skins, 2 explosion skins
- I prefer to give 100% of my money to you than 25%.

I know a store must be difficult to code, lot of work to do though... but micro-transactions are the new jackpot currently (see CS:GO, RL, H1Z1, Fortnite...)

That's still planned but needs some time.
Selling mercs using this kind of website is pretty easy/fast.

You need a megashitload of players for that.
Don't compare what's incomparable ;)

I'll never get 100% of players' money.
There's always intermediary costs. For an in-app purchase on Android for example, I'll give 30% to google, 20% of the rest to french taxes and surely some more of the rest to the bank.
Didn't touch anything yet by the way.
