I discovered Capterra in late 2018 and I managed to make around $150 on the platform. Capterra helps millions of people find the best software for their business or personal use. For this to happen, the company (Capterra) pays everyday software users like you and me to review software for others to go through before buying them. So, If Jenny wants to use Avast antivirus, she can go on Capterra to read YOUR review on it before buying it.
Capterra was paying $10 per review in 2018. They currently pay $5 per review. Small, I know but It’s not a long-ass review. You’re only required to say what you hate and like about a software in about 200 words or so.
Before leaving a review, you’re required to login with your LinkedIn account for proof that you’re human and a software-for-work user. Don’t worry, you can leave your review anonymously. They don’t mess with your LinkedIn.
If you have a Linkedin account that has a job role, job title and organization set then you’re good to go.
HOW TO GET STARTED WITH CAPTERRA
Step 1: Follow this link >> www.capterra.com in any of these browsers (Chrome/Mozilla/UC Browser) because Operamini sucks.
Step 2: sign up with your Linkedin account.
Step 3: Look for software within the link that you are familiar with (i.e Microsoft word or excel) and click it.
Step 4: Write your 200-word review, about the software and finally submit (Just write what you know)
Step 5: Repeat the same process in step 3 and 4 for other software you know. You can write reviews for up to 10 software per month.
Note that each review you write is $5 and you are only allowed to write 10 reviews each month, which is equivalent to $50 in total.
After a few days, you will be notified via email and how to claim your reward. The rewards are gift cards. You get to choose either iTunes card, Amazon cards, vanilla cards etc. while redeeming the cards. You can redeem the cards and sell them to gift card buyers or pay for products online with them.
We’ll discuss selling these cards later in this book.
