When I was new to Itch.io I really didn't know where to start of as a game developer so it took me a lot of time to understand Itch.io.
Here are a few steps to become a successful Itch.io game developer:
1. Always use nice covers and screenshots - If your game is paid I recommend you to add a view introducing the game or a demo or even nice screenshots, since people won't buy it until they know its worth it.
2. Where to get support? - I had a lot of questions when I started Itch.io but no one to solve them, then I found out the Itch.io support email, If you have any questions like me you can comment down or mail Itch.io directly! Mail - email@example.com
3. How do I get views? - Many new users don't get many views to their projects and they start advertising but advertising is wrong you should add your game in more jams so more people can check it out and maybe even win some prizes! Even my games got 500 views in 5 days since I added them in jams.
