New York, NY – September 5, 2001 – Tucows Inc., a leading distributor of e-business services and applications on the Internet, with more than 30,000 software titles in libraries located around the world, today announced the launch of their new resource service, Author Resource Center (ARC). The service was designed to provide software developers worldwide with the tools they need to both manage and promote their software available on the Tucows Web site. ARC gives authors at all levels the opportunity to promote their software cost-effectively.
The services ARC offers software developers include the means to retrieve their software’s daily download statistics, and a variety of promotional packages that allow them to market their software on the Tucows site. The prices for the services range from free to $19.99 a month.
“Our new Author Resource Center will help software developers simplify the process of managing their software on the Tucows’ site,” said Scott Swedorski, Editor-in-Chief and Founder of Tucows. “We are excited about ARC because it provides a comprehensive set of services to software developers worldwide at an extremely reasonable cost, allowing lower-profile authors to compete with software developer giants.”
ARC will include two main features – the Control Center and Product Promotion. The Control Center, which is free to all users, will allow software authors to add, update and manage software, as well as to check personal statistics and edit contact information. In the Product Promotion section, authors can choose from four different levels of marketing packages designed to help promote their software on the Tucows site.
