I'm not sure what you mean by "cloud market offering". Users can seven-click (fewer or more clicks may be required) launch a Tor bridge via cloud.torproject.org. How can we make the setup process easier?

The user has to create the security groups that will attach to the bridge prior to launching for it to be successful. It may be a little intimidating to very new users. The AWS Marketplace allows you to deliver pre-configured ACLs for your system as well as the image so it should be even easier for people to launch the system. Oh and just because it is a marketplace you can create "free" items as this would be.

The registration prerequisite include credit cards, U.S. bank accounts, and W-9's. The AWS Market Place seems a bit too commercial for us, even if we could offer Tor Cloud AMIs for free.
