How can I distribute my software through sterkly?
Anyone who owns a downloadable product, game, browser app, mobile app or other software can potentially work with us for distribution. Our distribution methods include a pay-per-install network, affiliate network and display inventory.
What is the pay-per-install network?
A network for publishers & advertisers who promote downloadable products including: software, games, Firefox add-ons and Chrome extensions. We will include your product in the installation path with other popular offers, drive traffic and you only pay for each unique install of your product from us.
How does pay-per-install work?
All the products in our pay-per-install network are free to download for the user. In order to keep the products free, we show advertisements during the installation process in the form of a complimentary download offer. The user has a choice to decline or accept this offer. When the user accepts the offer for your program then both pieces of software are installed.
What happens after I sign up as a pay-per-install advertiser?
After agreements have been signed, we ask you to send us some documents, including a silent installer, command line tracking and an offer screen. Next we build the installer, send it to you for approval and send you new users.
What type of pay-per-install advertisers do you partner with?
Our focus is on advertisers with a free software download, game, toolbar, free trial, or browser add-on. We vet all advertisers through our Quality Assurance (QA) team to ensure every download is safe for the user.
What type of Display inventory does sterkly have?
We serve over 35 billion impressions a month on the top news, entertainment, sport, lifestyle and social media sites. We will help you create a targeted campaign once we learn more about your advertising goals.

How can I make money with my software through sterkly?
There are two ways to make money with your free software, games and apps.
The first is by showing complimentary product offers (ads) during the installation path of your software. The user chooses to accept or decline the offer to install the complimentary product and you are paid each time they accept and complete the installation process. This is called install path monetization.
What is installer monetization?
Installer monetization is a way for you to earn revenue from your free downloadable product. We will include offers for other software during the installation of your product. This is done by building a custom installer that includes your product and the complimentary offers that sterkly hosts and you send traffic to the custom installer hosted by sterkly.
You are paid for each install of complimentary products included in your software installation.
How does pay per install work?
All the products we work with in our pay-per-install network are free to download for the user. In order to keep the products free, we show advertisements during the installation process in the form of a complimentary download offer. A user has a choice to decline or accept this offer. When the user accepts the offer for your program then both pieces of software are installed. You are paid for each unique user that installs the complimentary download product offered.
How much do you pay per user, per country?
This varies based on each product, geo’s of the users and the advertiser because we create a custom plan to fit your goals.
What is the sterkly Revenue Suite (sRS)?
sRS is a solution for app developers to make money with their browser extension. After implementing a unique code, we will show ads to your users in the form of search, in-line or banner ads.
Why should I be an sRS partner?
Most browser extensions are offered free to the users. However not many browser apps are able to make money. sRS helps app developers make money from their free products, so that they can keep developing more awesome products. sterkly has a very clean, customizable implementation: as a developer, you decide what type of ads are shown to your users.
What type of ads are shown?
We serve over 35 billion banner impressions per month, and work with 10,000+ top tier advertisers. The ads come from hundreds of relationships with direct advertisers, networks, exchanges and supply side platforms that are managed by our proprietary technology to maximize revenue per user. We vet all advertiser partners carefully and all ads are clearly labeled with full disclosure about why they are there. We stringently enforce ad quality guidelines (no adult, shaky ads, audio etc.) and we make sure all our partners agree with our ad guidelines.
How much money can I make with sRS?
How much money you can make depends on your daily active user base and the geographic location of your users. Contact us to get an estimate based on your products and users. However, we have partners making thousands of dollars a day through sRS.
