Knowing that the Internet is already cluttered with online ads, a startup company has tapped the “final frontier” of advertising â€“ our PC desktops.
A significant majority of people, at home or work, frequent their PCs more than print mediums, TV ads, billboards and all other ad communications.
DesktopWidgets.org is the startup company providing desktop gadgets or mini-applications that appear on your PC or Mac at start-up as small icons. But when clicked, watch out – these unobtrusive icons are robust with content and features.
In essence, these widgets place an advertiser directly on consumer desktops each morning proactively, unlike Apple, Yahoo and Google widgets which require a manual “start” of those widgets.
The real clincher is that DesktopWidgets are updatable by the advertiser 24/7, with those updates going live instantly. Advertisers get unlimited advertising for a one-time development fee.
