Would it be considered a 'widget'?  Something like this might be appropriate:


Promotion greatly depends on what kind of application it is and who would be using it.  Consider your target audience (are they pilots, doctors, construction workers, farmers, etc.), and figure out what types of online resources those people use.

Also, if your application is unique, contacting media outlets via a press release or directly through tech writers might be a good avenue for promotion.  Just be sure you have a quality product, and have a good delivery system so that no one trying to get your application is turned away.

Graphixer, thank you for your advice and comment. Unfortunately, it's not a widget. It's a stand alone "software as a service" solution. I want to do some targeted promotion later, right now I am looking for some general directories, similar to download sites, but which list web-based apps instead of downloadable ones.

I think a quick search for 'SaaS directory' will get you started.  The top site for this seems to be http://www.saas-showplace.com/.

But keep in mind that your target audience probably does not know what 'SaaS' is, so after submitting your listing in the top few directories, I would immediately focus on the sites and blogs that your potential customers visit.  Word-of-mouth is the best marketing tool, so if your application / service serves the market's needs and you're ahead of your competition, the business will probably come to you.

You could also try getting on http://www.saasblogs.com/ or other SaaS sites.

Hope this helps.
