The “Giveaway of The Day” Effect

“Giveaway of The Day” or mostly known as GOTD is one of the most popular software giveaway sites today. This site gives away one full version software everyday. There are a lot of software developers being their partner and promote their software through GOTD. Of course, this has a mutual benefit between them. Today, I have checked the effect of promoting a software through GOTD, at least, the traffic effect on the software developer site.

Today, GOTD gives away “Full Uninstaller” software developed by Chemtable Software, and watch the growth of Chemtable official site traffic:

The “Giveaway of The Day” Effect

Their site traffic increase from 10 – 50 users online into more than 220 users online. This proved that GOTD is one of the most suitable methods for the software developers to promote their product, at least make their new product known by users.

There is always one software given away at GOTD everyday, and not all of them are worth installing. We have a plan to review them once they are published. We think it could help our readers to decide the software is worth or not to install. It could keep our reader’s computer clean from unused software or unneeded software.

However, we need to ask you first, do you think it’s useful to post a daily review of GOTD giveaway software?

Chris Febian is the founder of He spent his time by testing new software and writing some reviews of them. This blog is one of his favorite place to publish his reviews.

    That is actually a very good idea. I check their site daily for a long time now. And i got a few very usable programs from it (Auslogics BoostSpeed 5 pro which is the best one for now), but they do have a tendency of offering a classic bloatware.
    You could help many users with reviews from their site and trough that promotion even help them to become even better trough their offerings.

    Great idea, is always good to get another opinion and so many of there giveaways are products I never heard of, it would be helpful.

    It’s a great idea. We all need to know what is inside these giveaway software, and, of course, we don’t want some useless things with a bunch of ads or adwares.
