Widdit Installer is a free installation platform that can be integrated with any software. Widdit Installer provides developers with a new and easy way to monetize their creations.
After you've integrated your software with Widdit Installer, every user that downloads and installs your product will be presented with an offer from our pool of advertisers. Users can choose rather to accept the offer, or decline it. The offer presented doesn’t affect the installation process, whether users choose to accepted it or not.
Not at all. Just log in to your admin panel, and we'll take care of the rest.
You get paid for every user that chooses to accept one (or more) of our partners offers. You can always decide what offers will be presented to your users, in order to get a higher conversion rate and make more money.
You choose how to get paid- we pay developers via PayPal or a wire transfer. The payment is done on a net 30 basis, which means payments for January 2013, will be fully paid by February 31, 2013.
It's easy. All you need is just your software exe. file and updated EULA, so Widdit Installer is the right tool for you.
You can add your own logo and text to our pre-made installation platform to increase usability and give end users a true valuable experience.
Users get a variety of offers from our pool of advertisers. We choose our advertisers carefully, and constantly optimize offers to make sure you get top dollar.
Yes. If you have a great deal with an advertiser, you can add their offer straight to Widdit Installer. That's a great way to promote your other products and brands.
Yes. Widdit Installer can present users with up to 4 different offers. If you feel you can increase your revenue stream by adding more offers, go right ahead- it's all up to you. If your chosen offers are good, you can even quadruple your income!
It's quite simple actually. Widdit Installer considers two variables- the amount that the advertisers pay per install, and the offer conversion rate. Say one advertiser is willing to pay you 1$ per install, and his offer yield 100 installs (For a total of 100$). The other advertiser is willing to pay only 0.8$ per install, but his offer yields 500 installs (For a total of 400$). While the first advertiser pays out more, Widdit Installer will offer you to work with the second advertiser- we always choose the option that will maximize your income.
No problem. Create a different installer for each software separately, or use one themed installer for all of them.
Sure you can! Using Widdit Installer admin panel, you can choose what offers your users will get in real time. The list of offers is presented in a descending order- the more money the offer banks, the higher it is on the list.
Of course! Widdit Installer offers a comprehensive analytics system that gathers all the information you need in one place. See which advertisers are the most profitable, and check the installation conversion rate for every offer you present. Get access to tons of information all brought to you in order to optimize and increase you revenue stream.
The only information that is gathered by Widdit Installer is what operating system runs on the user machine. We believe users have the right to keep their personal information to themselves.
Yes! Widdit Installer can be used by developers from all over the world.
We're thrilled to have you on board! Contact us, tell us a bit more about your business, and we'll get you set up.
