Arlington, VA — In just 12 months, Capterra's blog has become the go-to place for software advice. The writers take inside information they've learned from years in the industry and their personal software buying experiences and turn them into short, readable posts that help software buyers through the purchase process.
Some favorites include "Secrets Software Companies Won't Tell You" and "How to Survive a Software Demo", in which Cristina Stensvaag tells buyers to create a scorecard before they start demoing solutions.
"I really like having an outlet where I can share what I've learned about the software selection and purchase experience with others," says Stensvaag. "I think helps to hear from someone who has gone through the same process."
Alexandra Tambellini, one of the blog's most prolific writers was so excited about the blog's successful first year, that she led Capterra staff members in a rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday."
Capterra has big plans for the blog's second year, including guest posts from a variety of software vendors and video interviews with software industry experts.
