How FishBuster™ Works
Member benefits also include:
How can this be free?
We understand where the skepticism about our “free” claim comes from and
rest assured that we are not trying to scam anyone. This application is supported
by corporate advertising sponsors who want to place their product messages in
front of good, quality customers. By providing us with some basic information
when you signup, we are able to match advertisers and their offers to a more targeted
audience. This should, in turn, result in you receiving ads that are more specialized
to your tastes and preferences.
Is FishBuster full of annoying "pop-up" ads?
The ads that we display are prominent in the application, but never annoying. One of our
major design goals was to make the ads less intrusive to the application user. Just like you,
nothing irritates us quite like those nasty little "pop-up" ads. You will not find any of those in
Am I going to get SPAM emails if I signup?
However with that being said, we do send our members a monthly newsletter as well as exclusive offers from our sponsors.
Upon signing up, you will start receiving these updates from us about new versions of the application and any additional
features that we add. You are free to unsubscribe at any time. But communication with our sponsors is how we are able
to keep this application free (not to mention how we can feed the programmers).
Does FishBuster work on a Mac?
Not at this time. We are looking into porting the application but at this point there is not a delivery date.
Will using FishBuster make me cool?
There is no statistical data to back up this claim, but we have a hunch that it will.
Using FishBuster does not guarantee success. We give you the tools, but you still have to catch the fish yourself.
We also make no guarantees on whether or not using FishBuster will make you more popular with the ladies...but it can't hurt.
FishBuster™ is an application that’s used and valued by thousands of serious fishing enthusiasts because it helps them enjoy doing something they are passionate about. If you sell products to people who are serious about fishing, FishBuster can put your advertising/branding right on the desktop — and right in the middle of a school of feeding fish-loving consumers.
Tapping into the Power of a Branded Desktop Application (BDA)
BDA is geek speak for the application that fishing enthusiasts download from FishBuster.net. Once downloaded, the application gives you a direct channel to your most profitable customers. The FishBuster BDA lets you:
FishBuster Offers Many Ways to Land the Big Ones
By making FishBuster fundamentally interesting and useful to fishing enthusiasts, we’ve created a computer program fishing enthusiasts will come back to again and again. That means you’ll have frequent, user-initiated connections with your highest potential customers that build ongoing relationships and interactive brand experiences.
Primary sales channels used in the FishBuster application include:
Use a Super-Customized Version of FishBuster to Enlarge your Branding Net
We can make FishBuster in your image — as in a super-customized version of the application that integrates your brand. This branded version of FishBuster can be an effective channel for developing a profitable relationship and foster loyalty among your best customers. FishBuster can also be created as a complementary component of an overall advertising and branding campaign.
FishBuster on Your Site
You can include a FishBuster conditions display on your weeb site with 2 simple lines of code. Click here for details on the FishBuster Current Conditions widget.
Reeling in Trophy-Sized ROI from a Branded Desktop Application (BDA)
Effective desktop applications can dramatically increase your advertising exposure to your most profitable audience, especially compared to a paid listing or banner on a Web site. BDAs usually cost about as much as developing a micro site, which makes them more of an investment than developing banner or search campaigns.
As part of a smart strategy, a well done BDA that performs valuable functions for users can reel in marlin-sized returns on that investment. As a rule, BDAs can pump up the frequency component of the communications impact equation (a product of frequency multiplied by reach). They also add a valuable component known as “time with brand” (TWB, usually measured in hours). TWB creates opportunities to build lucrative brand awareness, preference and loyalty.
BDAs also let you know more precisely if your customers are biting by being much more measurable than banners, search engine listings and other online advertising. BDA results can also be integrated into existing Web site reporting environments. If there is a direct conversion opportunity in the application, such as a coupon offer, it can be tracked precisely as well.
Desktop Alerts Increase Interaction
Like a great fishing lure, FishBuster can attract the attention of prospects even when they’re not necessarily actively feeding. Even when minimized on the desktop, FishBuster’s desktop alerts get the users’ attention. Alerts are communicated by a message box sliding up and/or a flashing FishBuster icon in the system tray.
Alert triggers include:
FishBuster Becomes a Constant Avenue for CRM
By running in the system tray and providing valuable information to the user (such as new fishing conditions), FishBuster swims through the clutter and becomes integrated into your customer’s favorite hobby, thereby enhancing your brand image and building a profitable, long-term relationship.
Swimming Beyond Exposure to Interaction
It's great for customers to be frequently exposed to your brand, but the most sought-after level of branding is to create interaction. FishBuster can get your customers interacting with your brand in a meaningful, enjoyable way. FishBuster allows you to manage all aspects of that relationship and keep it going over a long duration through strategic release of new content and features.
Hooking New Customers while Creating a Buzz
As important as delivering marketing messages is, we've focused first and foremost on creating a computer tool that fishing enthusiasts will find genuinely useful and beneficial in pursuing their passion. Our commitment to the quality and usefulness of FishBuster presents the potential for super-profitable viral marketing and word-of-mouth buzz as fish enthusiasts share stories about this effective, free new tool.
Building Just the Right Digital Bait to Fit Your Needs
FishBuster has the ability to create just the right version of our application to attract your desired customer. The simplest solutions are the do-it-yourself "widget" and "gadget" development environments. Generally these are sufficient for small businesses, but may lack the flexibility and back-end services needed for more demanding applications.
The FishBuster team can work closely and collaboratively with your internal marketing group or agency to help develop the best strategy to fully integrate with your ongoing marketing campaigns and brand resources.
Have your marketing team contact FishBuster today to discuss the many possibilities for increasing your profitable customer catch!
