Best way to distribute eruopean software in the US market?

Hi there,

I´m part of a German software company and we like to enter the US market with our software. Now we are wondering whats the best way to distribute our software.

We are tinking about some kind of independent sales rep or a kind of agency which sells our product.

Do you know some possibilities or even a concret opportunity? We prefer somebody in the area of New York.

Thank you and kind regards

b2c software? b2b? Installed on web servers? Distributed on CD in boxes? Downloaded from a web site?

These sorts of questions are too broad to answer.

Case 1: Company A sells factory control software for use in auto manufacturing. It costs $1 million per seat. Should they have a distributor and salesmen to reach the US market?

Case 2: Company B sells a $1 iPhone game. Should they have a distributor and salesmen to reach the US market?

In Case #2, I'm guessing Apple is already your distributor ;-)

Good points about needing context though.
