    Banner ads for software question
    Hey all

    First off, sorry if this post is in the wrong place, I'm still new here

    Im currently getting together an affiliate program for my software product. Currently I'm working on the banners for affiliates to use.

    My question is, would an affiliate like to use banners for the free (And heavily limited) edition of the software, or should I make the banners on the larger Editions?

    The free edition is limited so much that if the downloader likes it he usually purchases an expansion within a month or two (i plan on having a cookie life of six months-infinite for the affiliate, so no worries about getting a commission)

    Any preferences as to making the banners on the free edition?

    Best regards
    Henrik Poulsen

    Oh and BTW

    How many Banners do you usually want from your merchant?

    I have made 8 different sizes in 3 different colors for a total of 24 different banners.

    Naturally I plan on making it clear for the affiliate that I will custom make one for him/her within a day or two if required, would this be an OK way to go about it?

    Kind Regards
    Henrik Poulsen

    For software, promote the free trial. For many, including myself, I will not purchase software unless I can try it out first. My preference is a fully-functional 30 day trial. If the free version is too limited to sufficiently demonstrate the main features I don't bother.

    The software is actually a fully functional version for 30 days. Then it will automatically revert to the free version.

    It is possible to change between the version during the 30 day period so you have the possibility to try everything out before you buy...

    Definitely the free version, with good notification on the site that it will expired in 30 days.

    What banner sizes do you have?
