If you are continuously looking for new gizmos and gadgets for your computer or are familiar with terms like freeware, shareware, trial, and fully functional then you will want to check out a site that provides free computer software, Giveaway of the Day. Unlike many other sites that offer free computer software, Giveaway of the Day provides free licensed software, yes that’s right- licensed. The free computer software at Giveaway of the Day is not freeware, shareware, or trial ware; it is 100% fully functional, licensed software that you can download free, for one day only. When you download your software, you will receive the registration information to ensure that your product is fully functional. However, you must act quickly as every offer changes each day.
It’s important to understand though that even though you are receiving 100% fully functional free computer software, there might be some restrictions should you wish to use the software for commercial purposes, however these are determined by each software’s developer and a thorough reading of the software’s terms, usage, and possible restrictions should alert you to any issues.
So you may be wondering why software publishers would agree to giveaway their products for free? Especially since they are fully functional and not trial, shareware, or freeware versions, right? Well, the answer is a simple one. Giveaway of the day actually purchases the registration code, and then enters into an agreement with the developer to write a review about the product and can give that code to all who come to the site. Sometimes the developers agree to release the free product for longer than 24 hours. First of all, this is great promotion for the company and a very effective marketing strategy. The reviews remain on the website with a snapshot of the software product. When people come to the site, whether simply browsing or to select their giveaway of the day, they can easily look through past offers and reviews.
Additionally, when people come to the site, or find a product that they have unlocked and used in a fully functional manner, they are well prepared to purchase further products from the developer. The benefits for everyone involved are great and giveaway of the day provides many advantages compared to traditional shareware programs that never seem to do enough of what you’d like them to do for free. Also, Giveaway of the Day also has a site that focuses solely on games, rather than computer software. Users also rate the games and have the option of leaving their comments.
