    I have this fantastic education software. It teaches you how to speed read, and compared to the rest of the available programs, it is by far superior. It teaches memory, speed reading, studying, and tons more about learning.

    There is a free trial of the software, which has some of the additional features of the software disabled. You can install it anduse it, but it comes with a lot of limitations. Once you buy the software from my site, you will be sent the software key and all the features are unlocked.

    If I were to upload the free-trial to a few torrent sites, would that not be a good marketing strategy?

    Am I barking up the wrong tree looking for sales, as people who use torrents aren't necessarily in the buying pool?

    I would love to hear some opinions below.

    Well. Double zip it. Isn't this obvious?

    Well if not, its a zip inside a zip, the large zip has a .txt file and a zip with the program in it. The .txt says "go to blah.com and get the password", blah.com is your site with a gateway to get the password.

    My experience that torrent traffic has a percentage of buying people too ;)

    I think anyway you can get more people to download and try your program the better.

    It's that simple - If it's all you say it is, you will have no problem making money.

    Also you may try giving the full version for FREE to the first "X" number of people (say 100 then except more as needed) who refer 3 or more of their friends to an email-verified registered trial. (you may keep this going until you have a big enough base user list compiled - or indefinately)

    Do you think that by uploading the software to the torrent sites, I am increasing the likelihood of the software getting hacked and a full free version comes out?

    So now the question... All the torrent sites, just a few, or is there a tool someone would recommend. I use torrents all the time, but have never uploaded one.

    More exposure = more popularity(if your shit is good) = more chance of getting your software/idea stolen and passed around for free.

    It still makes your software more popular, and MOST people still have NO clue how to torrent.

    At this point you'd probably be best served just getting as much exposure as possible, so put it out there.

    If your software is popular, it's going to get cracked eventually, so this is not something you should be worried about.

    Not worth uploading to private torrent sites though.

    I LOVE TORRENTS!!!! Yes, I heard my strategy earlier and it has about a 10% conversion rate to the registration form (opt-in list) and then a 5% of that are actual "buyers". So it isn't a bad market really.

    Use double-zip with text file that sends them to newsletter signup page that, once it is submitted and verified through email) they are given the registration code. Very effective if you ask me and automated. 4 hours of work and residual sales.
