W3i's Unique Windows Installer System and Three Ways to Get More Revenue and Traffic From Your Installs

ST. CLOUD, MN--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - Developers and authors are making their software and digital content available for free to satisfy the demanding online public, but they should get some reward for their work.

You've heard of the Windows installers Wise and InstallShield, and possibly Nullsoft, but how about W3i's Install IQ? Install IQ is a unique, ad-supported Windows installer system; and it's the first Windows installer to be certified in the TRUSTe Trusted Download Program ensuring compliance and user satisfaction.

Install IQ can increase your revenue and/or traffic in three ways: monetization, bundle, and carrot.

As a monetization partner, you do the marketing and get paid for every installation. Yes, you get paid to use Install IQ. With Install IQ you can customize download images with your brand and text to increase conversions. Our research shows that this Windows installer system is widely accepted by users. For example, Install IQ generated revenues of $86,280 during the first month for an audio and multimedia player distributed by an online marketing firm. After achieving such phenomenal success, the firm asked W3i to distribute a dozen additional applications using Install IQ.

As a bundle partner, you pay us to distribute your software and content. When a user installs a download that they are searching for -- such as a game, screensaver, utility, or desktop widget -- they are asked whether they would like to install your software or content too. Through this partnership W3i has downloaded toolbars, weather widgets, games and other useful downloads providing a rapid growth in their user base.

As a carrot partner, W3i will market your software or content free of charge. In addition to using our unique Windows installer system, Install IQ, we put our experienced team to work for you utilizing their expertise in online marketing. We then direct users through Install IQ installing your software or content. Thus, we can market your software and content with funding from approved partners.

If you have software or digital content and are interested in getting additional revenue or traffic using W3i's unique Windows installer system, contact W3i for a free consultation. You can then determine whether monetization, bundle or carrot is the right solution for you.
