All vendors of software products that you award "Gizmo's Freeware Top Pick" are entitled to display the logo shown at the left on their website.
The award logo should be linked back to your review page.
This is a win-win. Vendors get to display their award while this site benefits from the back-link and any traffic that clicks through to the product review.
For this reason all category editors are encouraged to contact the vendors of awarded products and suggest they add the award badge to their product page.
Below you can find an example email you can use. Just replace the bold text with the appropriate text for your recommended product.
