Software Marketing Newsletter

Software Marketing Newsletter
February 2002

Hi,
Welcome to the February Software Marketing Resource newsletter

NEW SITE
*****************************

I stumbled across a new resource site for software developers this week. The best part of the site includes a list of contracts and forms that are available for download http://www.softwareceo.com/member_area/downloads.php unfortunately it now appears that the downloads are only available to SoftwareCEO members. Membership is available for $ 195 to $ 2495.00 depending on the option you choose. Currently there is a $ 100.00 discount for the first 500 members. The forms available include licensing agreements and employment contracts. Definitely worth a look.

REGISTRATION SERVICE EXTRAS
*****************************

Emetrix is a subsidiary of Qwerks.com and as such, has access to weekly Qwerks newsletters that highlights various software programs. The Qwerks newsletters are true opt-in email list pick where the end users must actually sign up themselves and check the categories that interest them, so it is highly targeted. Depending on the category, there are between 500 and several thousand email addresses. Each week a number of products from Qwerks or Emetrix are highlighted in the newsletter. This is done as a value-added service to Emetrix/Qwerks clients. If you use either Qwerks or Emetrix for your registration service contact contact David Arner at arner@emetrix.com or see http://www.emetrix.com under the marketing section for additional details. It obviously depends on the product, but on average 10-20% of all recipients actually click through to visit the product web site or download the demo.

CONFERENCES
*****************************
Its that time again! If you have not yet made your plans to attend the Shareware Industry Conference July 18-20 in St Louis Missouri nows the time. Online registration is available for $ 79.00 per person http://www.sic.org/register.asp (the price will increase for those who register after April 1). The educational sessions will be chock full of information for developers, publishers and vendors in the software industry.

Software Business Magazine is hosting the Software Business Conference 2002, a Conference on Business and Technology for Executives and Managers of Software Companies. The conference will be held September 25-26, 2002 at the Denver Marriott Tech Center Hotel in Denver, Colorado. Its significantly more expensive to attend than SIC but looks very interesting none the less http://www.softwarebusinessonline.com/sb-convention02.htm

PAYPERCLICK SEARCH ENGINES
*****************************
Did you know that there are more than 233 pay per click search engines? I certainly didn't. There is also a rumor that Google will expirment with the Pay Per Click model. Apparently there are a number of regional and industry specific sites that have adopted the model. Additional details http://www.payperclicksearchengines.com/

SHAREWARE SITE NEWS
*****************************
Paul's Picks was recently hit by hackers, the site which was one of the first to adopt PAD, needs to be rebuilt. Paul Mayer is requesting that all developers resubmit their PAD files so that the site content can be reconstructed. It only takes a few minutes so be sure to submit your software today http://www.paulspicks.com

Be sure to check out the new site additions to the software site list at http://www.softwaremarketingresource.com/softwaresites.html there are a number of new sites accepting PAD!

If you are a software site and have instituted something new, be sure to contact Richard Josephs at uploadnews@asp-shareware.org so that the news can be included in ASPects (the Association of Shareware Professionals publication).

DONATIONS
*****************************

*****************************
Npsoft.org - a software site that caters to nonprofits and academic organizations, has inexpensive ad space available . A choice of a targeted banner advertisement or a text box ad is available for $ 25.00 for six months. Additional information can be found at http://www.npsoft.org/advertisingsoftwaresection.html
