Moderated by: Kristin Oberhaus
Location: Minskoff Level:

Are you a publisher or distributor of freeware, trialware, or shareware that needs monetization? Do you have software that already monetizes but needs distribution? Come meet with each other and get to know application providers looking for the same thing. At the same time, Josh and Kristin from W3i would like to help you connect people to your applications. We will share with you our process to connect people to applications, and want to hear from you what challenges you face in this industry.

W3i, an application network that increases revenue, distribution and engagement for Windows applications and plug-ins, combines the demand for free and trial applications monetized by the distribution of recommended, relevant applications when the consumer is in the installation mindset. The W3i Application Network uses InstallIQ, W3i’s proprietary Windows installation manager, the first installation manager to be certified in the TRUSTe Trusted Download Program. Tested and optimized on over 300 million installs–currently over 9 million installs monthly and growing, W3i will prove to be a valued partner in growing your application business.
