As an affiliate marketer I'm looking at using RSS AutoResponders to increase my conversions...especially on high ticket items. I think it's a great marketing platform that shows the progression of RSS as an effective marketing tool.

What about the dedicated apps. vs. just setting up a feed to be subscribed to directly?

By downloadable application I'm assuming you're referring to a merchants specific feed aggregator a user could download to their desktop and not to regular aggregators such as Feedreader, FeedDemon, NewsGator, etc.
If this is what you're referring to I belive it's a waste of time and money as generic aggregators are perfectly suited to getting your news out.
Please clarify if this is not the premise of your post.

Yes, I was emailed a sales pitch for a dedicated app. (downloaded by the subscriber) that worked for autoresponder RSS . . .

We have been researching this for a few months for a client who is looking at going down this road on a purely B2B basis.
Of course the impending release of longhorn is going to turn this on it's head.

Interesting post - thank you.
The question will become - how many downloadable apps will consumers accept - and which ones will they trust
Its back to the number of toolbars you will run
and who you trust to accept downloads from (fears of spyware)

I agree howie.....
That I am sure why MSFT are building it into the operating sytem. It will be interesting to see what happens when longhorn gets released.
On the other side I have 4 apps on my machines to detect and get rid of spyware. Can't find one that does it all...... Maybe this should be question in another forum!
