Why a Screensaver?


Whether you know it or not, almost everyone that has a computer uses a screensaver. Some use a blank screen, some use built-in screensaver modules, and others purchase or download them from the internet.

A screensaver is a program that activates when a person stops typing or using the mouse for a specified period of time -- note that this does not necessarily mean the person is away from the screen, he or she may be answering a phone call or otherwise occupied. If the person is attending a meeting or otherwise indisposed, there will likely be other people in the office who will be within view of the screen.

If a screensaver is entertaining enough, people will download it and send copies to friends. Some people even collect screensavers just to see what the screensaver does.

Given the ubiquitous 'necessity' of screensavers, like a mousepad, they should be used to help re-enforce your company's brand image, logo, URL, goals, or other promotional messages.

  Screensavers can be used for many different marketing purposes:

- Art Galleries can use them to introduce selected artists, their painting and background.

- Airlines can use them to help remind potential passengers of special destinations from season to season.

- Technology companies can use them to introduce features of particular products in a storyline fashion that can inspire an already captive audience.

- All companies can use them as a way to communicate your corporate goals and identity to employees.
 


Because of their passive nature, like television, screensavers engage people's attention, and what better direction to focus their attention than to the story of your products or services?

Since screensavers are downloadable, they can also be distributed over the Internet to help increase the hits and word of mouth about your site. See the website promotional section for more information about using a screensaver to help bring people to your site.

What is a Website Promotional Screensaver?


Website Promotional Screensavers are special, story-oriented digital content that websites can use to draw users and media attention to their website.

In the age of the Internet Revolution, a world wide virtual community has been created and it is still expanding rapidly, particularly in China. Millions of websites are competing for user attention. Brand recognition, site activity, interactivity and media buzz can make or break a good website.

By creating digital content, such as a screensaver, you are freeing your web presence from the modem line and branding millions of computer screens with your marketing message. And where there are computer screens these days there are often modems ready to log on. Your website presence now reaches out from the Internet through digital products: your mark, and URL, is out there.

Remember the last time you went to a trade show? Not very exciting huh? But you did take home lots of trinkets: bags, pens, flyers, sticky pads. Did you find the CD-ROM? Did you put it in your machine when you got home? If so, then you'll probably understand how people will collect anything that's free. For every person that downloads a screensaver or other digital product, your brand, your website takes on a form that people can have, handle, and copy around -- further establishing your brand identity and re-enforcing top-of-mind awareness.

With digital products you're not stuck with ten thousand pencils, or a thousand extra brochures when they day is done. Gave away a calendar last year and still have hundreds left? Upgrade them! Lower cost per unit, storage costs, and upgradability are just a few of the benefits of digital products like a promotional screensaver.

If you don't already know, a screensaver is a program that activates when a person stops typing or using the mouse for a specified period of time -- note that this does not necessarily mean the person is away from the screen, he or she may be answering a phone call or otherwise occupied. If the person is attending a meeting or otherwise indisposed, there will likely be other people in the office who will be within view of the screen.

People love to collect screensavers, and if it's done well, via word of mouth or email forwarding, people will find out about it and visit your site.

For those not interested in increasing their hit count, Moli Design can also submit your screensaver to the many screensaver download sites all over the Internet Users in China and abroad will all be able to download your screensaver and be directed to your site.
