Releasing 4 Free Software a year using Rebrand Software
Neither Joe nor Stan can write software of professional quality. It is true Stan attended a few night classes in programming but writing software that will be used as market promotion tools is a different kettle of fish altogether.
Giving away free software like corporate gifts (golf caps, diaries) will need quality and robust software. When users download and use Joe’s software, they will see JoeNoGood.com logo and a link directly to Joe’s site. Apart from onetime costs, there are no extra costs - when Joe gives out this corporate gift to 1000 or 1 million, his outlay is same. Joe’s eyes glistened on hearing this.
Joe found a rebrand software site that will sell him resale rights with adjustments. That is important, because JoeNoGood.com do not want to be associated with cloned software that everybody may have, like many marketing self-help books. He wants some unique feature that will distinguish his corporate gift from others. Finally, he decided on an RSS news feed reader, stock charting program, a time planner with crypto functions and a computer security tool.
Sending 6 Press Releases a year
Joe understands that sending messages is tricky. From his knowledge of Chaos Theory, which he learned from analyzing stocks, information seeps through internet at different speeds.
A press release by Google can travel round world many times in a few hours. On other hand, a message by Joe may take months just to cross Atlantic Ocean. Hence, he chose RushPRnews.com headed by a veteran with 15+ years experience to give him an edge over thousands of press releases filed each day.
A happy ending
At end of first year, Joe found he gained about 1000 links for his articles, assuming 20 links for each article. For 8 free e-books and software titles, he got about 2000 links, assuming 250 links for each title. For press releases, he found another 250-500 links. 3000-plus inbound links for one year of hard work is indeed gratifying for Joe.
Years down road, Joe’s hard work and determination had paid off. His store is recognized leader with over 36% of global share in gift sales. From meticulous data he has collected over years, he converted these to marketing data that any advertiser or gift manufacturer would die to get their hands on. Joe wisely published for-subscription-only e-books with grand title of Collective Consciousness of Gift Buyers by Country, Month and Year and priced them in eGold (equivalent to thousands of Yanks dollars). Joe Nogood struck dotcom gold. The powers in Mountain View are not amused.
JoeNoGood.com and Joe Nogood are fictional. Hopefully readers can see a bit of themselves in Joe as he grapples with complex issues on Internet. Stay tuned, folks.
