    You can try promoting it in Facebook groups and forums that have to do with gaming. If you have the money, invest in Facebook advertising. But to be honest with you, your landing page doesn't look very professional so I'm unsure whether you'll get the results you desire.

        I think it's very bland - too much white space and many lines/blocks of text without much formatting.

        The logo is also a bit in-congruent with the font you use for your headline. You know better if it converts or not but I can count 4 different fonts in 2 lines there and it doesn't look "professional".

        You could also use the pictures to give more "value" to your page by displaying them in a bigger format.

        As a personal preference, I would also make the text more exciting and appealing. A bit of humor, quirkiness...A major point in my opinion is deciding WHOM you're targeting with this page: is it the girls or the boyfriends?

        Because you're using 3rd person and you're not directly talking to anyone...

        As for how to promote it, social media (Facebook Groups, Instagram, YouTube) is a great place to start, as many have said so already. On top of that I would definitely try Reddit. Look for some good subreddits and check with the moderators if you can post your contest and how.

        Again though, your niche is super fun and laid back so that's definitely something I'd try to use on this page rather than explaining in great detail all the phases.
