    How to promote freewares?

    Hi,

    This is a subject not often discussed here at sitepoint. I work for liscreensavers.com and we publish free screensavers. I have spent the last 2 days promoting some of them. Submitting to download places, contact news site...

    My question is. What is the best way to promote a freeware or a shareware? What different methods are available?

    (I am getting really tired on submitting to download sites. )

    Get yourself into an Internet magazine. Email the people in charge of creating the list of useful freeware in the magazine every month. Maybe you can get onto the front cover CD as well.

    Yes I have submitted the screensavers to over 100 download companys. Some with very good results. One of our most popular screensavers was downloaded 20000 on one day from one of the biggest download sites.
