Ok what exactly are we trying to do in this topic?
We are trying to come up with ideas that our users can implement.

For example:

1)sending an email to friends and family (in your address book) explaining to them about Comodo Free Desktop products (CPF, CAV, Backup, Ivault, VE, Free email certs) and inviting them to try it because you are using it and you recommend it

2)Schools and Universities usually don't have much money to spend, so informing your local schools and Universities for them to start utilising Comodo Desktop Products. They will even be grateful for the introduction :-)

3)Ask your local shop to spread the word to their shoppers.

4)Respond to any news article or blog sites in the field of security explaining Comodo products and why you use them and why they should write about it.

5) Finding download sites that talk about Comodo Desktop Security products and contribute by telling them what you think about Comodo  products by submitting your feedback. (eg: http://www.download.com/Comodo-Personal-Firewall/3640-10435_4-10523990.html?tag=tab_ur)

6)Running Naked with "Comodo Secured my PC" Tattood on your body thru the city you live in. I can see some disadvantages with this particular method and would not recommend you to try this as Tattoing might be painful :-)

7)Any other ideas pls?

thanks

Hey Melih,

Does Comodo have any logos for CPF and CAV that we can include on websites? If so, how can we get them?

My wife and I own four domains and I administer about 20 others, and would be only to happy to include a logo/link to your sites (providing my other clients don't mind - shouldn't be a problem).

Rgds,

Another thought, if the  CAV certification on outgoing emails is moved from being an attachment to being appended to the tail of the email, then a link to the CAV site  cold be added to the certification signature.

I just came up with two good ideas:

1. Submit the rest of the free Comodo programs to FileForum.com
2. Make some t-shirts, etc.

I live in Mexico and would really like the idea to spread the word.

I'll send email and talk about with some friends.

But one disadvantage is that many universities try to have the computer software language the same as windows. and so the software should be in spanish language.

I can make my effort but many of my friends and university contacts will not use the products if they are not in spanish language.

I'll makie my best since I'm very satisfied with CPF.

Here's another good idea I came up with tonight:

You should offer a CD in all supermarkets that contains all of your free software (or at least the Firewall, Antivirus, Backup, and the Anti-Spyware when its available).

That is a great idea but it would cost Comodo money, and I don't know if they are willing to pay for CD's for free products, when they are already paying so much to develop and update them, and make products like ZTL, and Comodo Meet.
