Sureshot® launches branding program for the
free pop-up killer
April 10, 2003:
Sureshot Software today announced the branding program for
"Stop-the-Pop-Up"™, a versatile pop-up blocking product
dealing with a multitude of advertisements such as browser popup windows, WEBPOPUP spam,
hostile activeX controls, GAIN adware pop-ups, etc.
"We have had numerous branding inquiries since the lastest release of
Stop-the-Pop-Up, ranging from small private companies to large Internet Service Providers (ISP)",
said Roger Karlsson, project manager at
Sureshot Software. "How do I stop pop-up windows? How can I stop pop-under ads? How do I get rid of
Messenger Service Spam? How can I block GAIN popups? These questions are becoming a burden
on the technical support personnel at the ISP. Users are, completely understandable,
annoyed at the flood of pop-up windows. Most unfortunately, users associate them with the
ISP since pop-ups only open when the user is online.
The ISP would like to offer its users a robust and thorough solution that deals with all types
of annoying pop-up advertisements and that is where our branding program comes
into the picture."
The branding program offers the branding partner to add a customized logo for Stop-the-Pop-Up™.
The partner company is allowed to distribute Stop-the-Pop-Up™ free of charge, from a web site, CD-ROM or in a newsletter.
The software can be distributed to anyone, not just existing customers, subscribers or users, and can
thus increase the branding partner's clientele.
"The importance of branding free software can not be underestimated.
Your consistent, recognizable logo in combination with freeware that stops a real nuisance
will define your company as unique and much more memorable in the minds
of current and potential customers", concludes Karlsson.
Pricing and Availability
The branded version of Stop-the-Pop-Up™ is offered for
a token sum. A detailed description is available at
Stop-the-Pop-Up™ eliminates annoying pop-up advertising from opening up on your computer as you surf the Internet.
