Ya, I guess I should make that public, shouldn't I? I forgot about that as only ppl from that blog really look at the link. Still, time to let others see it and search engines find it.
I have to tell you how nice it is and how important it is to sites like ours when people tell their friends about our software.
That's why I do it. I don't just tell friends either, I get the word out to the right demographic. >:] Someone has got to spread the word, and why not me?
We don't have any money to afford to advertise, we don't have big connections that promote our software. All we have is the free software listing sites and the people who tell each other about our site.
You've got to work on my connections again. I'd like to really get your name on the map in the future. Once there is some user feedback, and I've had a change to play with the skinning format, I think we might be able to get a skin competiotion going. Just a lil one for fun at one of the skin sites. I did this with trigger years ago, and it was a pretty successful.
It makes all the difference in the world when someone who likes our software posts about it in a blog or newsletter or tells a friend. Thank you.
Heh, don't give a second thought to the blogs. That's small time. As for news letter, I need to start my own one eventualy. These sites host skins, are a hang out for skinners, and are a place where the general public go for skins, news, software, ect.
Another way to get the word out is with screenshot, if you go about it the right way. They are very popular, esp at custo. If someone has a really nice setup (which is the tricky part), and your app is part of it, then ppl will naturally ask: "what app was that, and where can I get it?" Custo had to make it mandatory for screenshot posters to say what was in a screen shot & how they did it. The furoms where getting filled with "how did they do that?" questions. Screenshots will actually be deleted if they don't include the info.
Anyway, feel free to e-mail me when an update is released. I'll write future articles on it, and that helps keep the app in the public eye. I'll send you an e-mail now.
Btw, custo has thier article up:http://www.customize.org/news/1685
