BGMP 022 Weird Giraffe Games with Carla Kopp

Board Game Marketing Podcast

In this episode, host Nalin talks to Carla Kopp about marketing for Weird Giraffe Games. We discuss: -          [1:02] All of the project Carla is currently working on and how she started in the board game industry. -          [7:39] Creating new community activities to share and learn together online, in the current “new normal” context. -          [12:19] Having the opportunity to choose who to work with, prioritizing working with creators who have a good attitude towards the creation process of their game, and who are fun to work with. For this, online communities with organic and real relationships have been very useful.  -          [15:10]  Choosing a team of people and creators who can bounce ideas and have opinions to make games even better.  -          [18.38] The process of working with a publisher for a game can take a long time, up to years. It requires a long marketing strategy, approaching reviewers, getting feedback, finishing the game.  There is no “one size fits all” strategy. -          [25:21] How to target people on the mailing lists for different games. Email is king, and it let’s create a special treatment for super fans. -          [31:09] The importance of having an online presence for creators, to share their game constantly and creating a name for themselves and their game. Take advantage of all of the people online and the feedback they can give.  -          [34:39] How to contact Weird Giraffe Games and Carla Kopp!

Episode 110: Carla Kopp of Weird Giraffe & Galactic Raptor Games

Board Game Gumbo Live!

BJ welcomes back Carla Kopp from Weird Giraffe Games & Galactic Raptor Games, and Carla brings the spicy games! BJ & The Name Father chat about some recent plays:  Metro-X (how about those pencils!) With A Smile & A Gun (with a surprise appearance in the Chat Krewe from the designer, Jon V!)  Rap Godz And of course, BJ & The Name Father get in a long chat with Carla Kopp about her ongoing Kickstarter for Roar & Write. Based on the Animals Kingdom game theme, Carla has designed a doozy of a randowriter with one of the best names in the hobby. It has beautiful art, is already funded, is easy to teach yet is a very thinky roll-n-write. Check it out now and tell them BJ said hey.  Then, The Name Father takes over the show for the game -- it is the return of the Boudin Bowl!  BJ competes (rather poorly) with Starla & Mik Fitch of Our Family Plays Games and ABC's Good Morning America!  Can BJ even score a single point in the competition? With categories like "Aw, Shoot! That's Cute! Big Brute! and Toot Toot!", there is no guessing what games BJ will try to sneak past the Fitches. Will Alex successfully convince the Chat Krewe to boo BJ's choices?  Find out!  (P.S. Don't miss Christian Strain's comment in the Chat Krewe about news on Asking For Trobils!)  Thanks for listening!
