Software Marketing - Get listed in magazines' round-up articles

from Al Harberg's collection of software marketing articles, designed to increase microISVs' software sales

Press releases can get you publicity months and years from now, in roundup articles. Multi-media software, including video, music, and photo software, all get excellent coverage in round-up columns and blog articles. It's a good way to do multimedia software marketing.

Computer, business, and multi-media magazines regularly publish round-up articles.

roundup articles These roundup articles compare various applications. Every month, we see magazine articles entitled "Top ten video conversion applications" or "The best business photography programs". Getting your fair share of this roundup article publicity should be part of your software marketing mix.

Get your share of free publicity

roundup articles for software apps It's important to have your software listed in these articles. If a magazine or newspaper reader is about to buy the kind of software that's described in the article, then being reviewed in the article can result in a direct sale. If users are thinking about making a purchase in the coming months, they'll tear out the article and file it for future use.

You don't have to win to sell more software

You don't have to be awarded the most stars, or get the editors' recommendation, for these articles to sell your software. For example, a music cataloging software application can have a three-star program with a comment like "solid basics, but lacks feature-A and feature-B", and you can get more sales than the five-star program, because a lot of people don't want to wrestle with, or pay for, unnecessary features in their multi-media software.

Send press releases and get press coverage

To be considered for round-up articles, send press releases to the editors, software reviewers, and columnists. Regularly. Include full contact information (postal address and phone number, in addition to URL and email address) so that the editors will take you seriously, and realize that you're a long-term player in the marketplace.

Include the vertical-market editors. For example, if you're selling multi-media software, in addition to the tech editors, you'll want to send your press releases to music editors, video magazines, and photography blogs.

It takes time to build a reputation with the editors. But good brand name recognition can generate a lot of sales. Make press releases part of your software marketing mix.
