Marketing software is a wonderful topic. Something I would imagine
just about everyone on this list might be interested in. I have been
marketing my software for about 8 years now and am not afraid to offer
some of my experiences.
There are a handful of education distributors left in the U.S. Most
are slipping and have gone out of business do to this market going soft
over the past 3 years. I do work with distributors and have found them
to be very effective. When it comes to distributors that work with
retail in stores, that is a different beast altogether. Most will
offer you 10-15% of their net. Once you tie up with a distributor, you
can get locked into long contracts where you may lose control over
certain aspects of your product.
I'll get off my soap box for now unless others are interested in
opening this up.
