The Ultimate Shortcut empowers businesses to more effectively engage their target market while establishing lasting, profitable relationships. The days of putting your target customers in a headlock and bullying them with harsh consequences are over – Rest in Peace! Growing numbers of tech savvy consumers now seek out mutually beneficial relationships – they want to feel engaged by people, not infested with cookies and stalked by auto responders!

The Ultimate Shortcut is a simple and effective solution to gathering vital info and delivering your custom messages without being overly invasive. It allows for more organic engagement that encourages social sharing, brand loyalty, and ultimately more profits for you.

When a visitor clicks The Ultimate Shortcut banner on your site or blog, they are given the option to allow your icon onto their desktop. There’s no risk of unwanted intrusion because they maintain full control over their level of engagement, NO cookies necessary (we prefer chocolate chip to the dry digital variety anyway!).

Now, you have the ability (with their consent) to track their actions when they visit your site and to deliver them custom messages straight to the dynamic icon on their desktop. Updates, insights, breakthroughs, special offers, jokes, whatever you want to communicate. You can even change the icon image. This creates further daily engagement similar to “Google Doodles” or company Tweets. But with The Ultimate Shortcut, it’s right on their desktop. And since it’s dynamic, it stands out from the block of lifeless icons that litter most computers.

It works for customers who now feel valued instead of hunted, plus it adds a dash of fun to their day. It works for you because you can customize your marketing and development efforts based on their habits and preferences.  Everyone gets exactly what they want, and the sky is filled with rainbows…with BIG pots of gold at the end!

My name is Pierre Bennorth and in 1997 I invented a shortcut program to the internet which have been shown to be extremely interesting as a substitute for cookies and now I have developed ver. 2 - you can see more details on our website - and about me here.

Back in 1997 the software was only made for Win95 and for now we are beta testing the new version for WinXP, WinVista, Win7 and Win8 but our software has to work on all devices/operating systems which means that we are in need of funds for our programmers, approximately DKK 20,000.

If you contribute to our project you will get our software to use on your website as described on our Product page  and in our Rewards.

If we get more funds than we need for programming the rest will go to our marketing budget.

Our mission is to replace Cookies and let the users Go Diafco!

Back in 1998 i sold copies of the program to companis like LEGO, Copenhagen Stock Exchange and Lollands Bank. The program was even up for consideration as a part of the secure payment solution the authorities in Denmark were working on back then.

However, the collapse of the dotcom bubble in 2000 brought an end to the project.

Risks and challenges

All new projects involves risks! In my previous project that has been running for 4 years, I forecast that a political change of the government in Denmark was the biggest threat to the project, I even made ​​a SWOT analysis in my business plan with this threat - and indeed the new political constellation changed the rules - just check out the change of the rules on product placement in Denmark since 2010.

So no! I will not write anything about the risk here... In order of "what you fear, you attract!"

But you can make up your own calculations - there are more than 1 billion websites world wide, and counting, of which 25% are active. Surely there is a market.

Our first challenge is to make the program work on all platforms and server operating systems - regardless of the users preferences.

Our second challenge is to market the program and here we will provide it free of charge to non-profit organizations. Furthermore we have established an affiliated network to boost the sale.
