Some strategies that can attract new users are promoting of games through social media marketing like twitter, YouTube, Facebook, offer free trial or demo for new users to experience the game beforehand, using referral system to reward players if they invite friends to play the game.

I would reach out to youtubers that play that kind of game and see if they be willing to give it a spin, best way to do it these days.
This is a good idea, and I believe video marketing can help a game grow a lot. Especially if the YouTube channel has many subscribers. I also think reaching out to Twitch and TikTok users will help.

Providing a demo and early access to players can be important as they set the tone. Alpha and beta testers help spread the word about the game, and they are the ones who talk about it. Early press is a good thing.

Reddit and Tumblr are good for marketing purposes. Game owners should have pages set up on these sites as well.

A referral system is vital and it’s important to have one. Users love to be rewarded. Prizes should be unique to the system.
The referral system should also include banners and buttons that users can use to promote the game.

Social media definitely helps especially if you have friends with similar interests in games. Gaming forums that allow you to promote is another good method.
