Capterra’s blog helps software buyers better understand the crowded technology landscape and make the most out of their software purchases, covering all types of business software. The industry or type of software you write about doesn’t matter to us, but it does need to be specific… whether by helping businesses become more efficient with the help of technology, helping them select a specific type of software, or helping them get the most use out of software after they’ve purchased it. Heck, it doesn’t even have to be about software- just about making businesses more successful!
Our Content Philosophy
We think the content that we write has to be more than just helpful. It has to do more than simply inform or amuse or explain.
It has to be epic.
It has to be so useful that people bookmark it, return to it again and again, and share it with colleagues. It should address specific pain points and present concrete, actionable steps for readers to surmount them.
Whether this means you give us a 2,400 word in-depth guide to mobile software, or a brief but incisive explanation of how new regulations will affect your industry, epic is always the goal.
