Whether you are or are not a freeware developer, you can advertise on the Grime Site, a site that supports freeware and in particular, that related to the Geography, GIS, Imaging, Visualisation, Remote Sensing and Photogrammetric marketplace. The Grime GIS Site (start at http://www.grime.net/gistools) is dedicated to the identification of appropriate freeware to translate or reformat GIS/Remote Sensing/Photogrammetric data into something that is useful for particular applications in that space. 
 
I initially developed the site a few years ago for my own benefit but it has grown to become one of the most navigated independent web sites in the GIS/RS/Photo space.
 
As an indication of how well the Grime Site is ranked in the search engines, try searching Google with a string of arbitrary GIS related file formats, e.g. ALG BIL BMP DAT. The Grime Site is usually at the top of the list.
 
To date, I have maintained these pages at no cost to the end user.
 
My aim is to continue to provide a free service to those who use it, but I now ask for sponsorship from organisations for their own file formats and software tools and for other complimentary formats and freeware tools.
 
For a small fee per file format per year, you will be supporting not only your own software and file formats but the activities of freeware developers that are supporting your file formats. In return, you can "claim" your own file formats (strictly one sponsor per format) and you will be provided space for a 160x160 pixel logo/banner-ad of your choice adjacent to your nominated format, linked to whatever page on your website you want (to the download page or somewhere else?). As an example of what is proposed, have a look at http://www.grime.net/gistools/e-sponsored.htm.
 
If you wish, a disclaimer from you (no more than 500 words) can disassociate you from any 3rd party freeware. This would constitute the first link from your logo/banner ad, with subsequent links to your own website (or elsewhere) from there.
 
Preference will be given to the owners of the file formats, but a one month grace period once a "hostile takeover" has been received will determine whether the "owner" can be identified and wants to claim the right to sponsor their own format or not.
 
You can also sponsor a freeware Software Tool on the http://www.grime.net/gistools page for a year (renewable), of which half will be sent to the freeware developer in recognition of their work (if the software tool is yours, then you pay only the 50%). The proposal here is similar. For each software tool that you wish to sponsor, you will be provided space for a 160x160 pixel logo/banner-ad of your choice adjacent to your nominated tool on the Grime GISTools front page.
 
Please advise me.
