Hi there, I`m new to the site and forums, so please bear with me whilst I find my feet, but I have an idea which I think could be used to generate additonal sales, principally from exisiting customers but there has t be some sort of potential, so I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this .....I create customised screensavers for small businesses, and have created some recently with RSS feeds built into them, so that assuming the PC is still connected via BB the RSS feed is displayed in the screensaver when the PC is idle in the office etc.So, my sales idea is to have a businesses customers download and install the screensaver, having a direct RSS feed promoting that particular businesses top selling products, EBay listings etc etc or even latest forum postings, in the RSS feed.  Obviously some nice fancy Flash will be used within the screensaver as well based around the business logo / site design / colour scheme etc.What do you think?  Would it work?  Anyone interested as a result of reading this disjointed message ?Coments / suggestions appreciated.ThanksAllan

    Hi there,
    I think it is a good idea - it sounds like something I`d be interested in actually. I just did a search for custom screen saver and not much came up. The couple that did come up looked kind of old fashioned - not very `pretty` or professional looking. Your service sounds as is it could take it to the next level.
