Recent research by browser add-on developers, Besttoolbars confirms that browser add-on or browser extension development can play a significant role in business competitiveness. The firm found that add-ons can help to boost business profits, generate leads and retain customers. Significantly, they are also a trusted source of customer engagement. With so many advantages to cherry pick from, Besttoolbars is encouraging brands large and small to get in on the act by utilizing software bundling options as a means of distributing browser add-ons.
Vladimir Zhukov, Head of Marketing of Besttoolbars said, “Software bundling is a cost efficient and time effective way to commercially distribute any browser add-on. Many networks such as InstallMonetizer and PerIn¬stallCash allow software publishers to earn money with bundling software. Software publishers bundle their free software with the selected add-on and get paid for distribution. Distributing a browser add-on in this way and through these channels provides a huge scope for increased market penetration, with the added advantage of only paying for each actual install. This helps to keep distribution costs down and guarantees a much stronger return on investment.”
With payment via install, software bundling offers a greater amount of accountability and transparency than many other distribution channels. Organizations opting to push their extensions in this way can track exactly how many installs of the add-on have been achieved.
In examining the benefits of software bundling channels for browser add-on distribution, Besttoolbars determined that Internet Explorer enjoyed the largest market share, making add-ons developed for that browser the most suitable for commercial distribution. Explorer was followed by Chrome and Firefox in the user popularity stakes.
Those considering software bundling as an option are also encouraged to consider the primary destination region, as channel popularity will vary according to geographical location. In Latin America for example, Chrome is the browser of choice, outperforming Internet Explorer by 14%.
Vladimir Zhukov Head of Marketing of Besttoolbars added, “Location-based anomalies must always be factored in when determining the most productive way to utilize software bundling as a distribution network. Each target market will observe its own specific behavioral characteristics and trends making careful consideration of all available software options a critical business process before the dissemination to market takes place.”
